Video from the clinic with Adelinde Cornelissen at the Stallion Show 2011 Doing Flying Changes:

VERY VERY rare opportunity to purchase a 7 yr old SPORT ster gelding that is competing at ZZ Light Level!!!!

Nobby is the best dressage horse we have ever been honored to own. He is a once in a lifetime horse. He was also named the best dressage horse for the last three years in the Netherlands!!!

We handpicked this talented TALL gem of a sporthorse at the stallion show in January, when we saw him in a clinic with rider, Judith Peterson----wow---this is one AMAZING dressage horse!!!!!

This will be your best horse, EVER.

1st Premie as a foal, this ster +SPORT gelding's pedigree is textbook:


Stam line 1, with a low 2.15% inbreeding and b-day 4/29/04

Combination number 501305KP.

Judges ADORE this tall sporthorse with the  AMAZING canter, frequently coming back to the stable after the competitions to tell his rider how much they like her horse! Judges write: "talented horse, beautiful horse, very very positive feedback....".

His record speaks for itself, and remember, he is ONLY 7 yrs old....

He has already achieved the prestigious SPORT Predicate, to go along with his coveted STER status.

Nobby was seventh place at the subli-CUP FINALS (FEI World Cup test for 6 year olds) with an average score of 74.8%! (He was the ONLY friesian at this whole FEI competition!).

Nobby was Dutch Champion for the third time as "most promising Dressage Horse" October 2010, with a score of 84 Points! On 09/04/2010 he was  KNHS Reserve Champion Hippiade Z1, with an average score of 68.33% (never before has a friesian shown in  Z level [3rd level] with such  high scores during the Nationals!)

Nobby was the KFPS Z1 dressage Dutch Champion 2010!   AND Nobby was   Friesian Champion Z1 on 8/14/2010. This talented boy has won 3 new saddles for his rider, Judith Peterson, over the last 1 1/2 years:) 

He was Dutch dressage champion of the  KFPS in  M1 dressage (2nd level)  in 2009, with the highest score of all classes! (Nobby obtained 3 points in one test by 2 judges!)

He was  indoor champion winner of the  "silver whip" and Dutch Champion in 2009 as the most promising dressage horse!

In 2008, in his test, Nobby obtained an 8.5 for his "Step" and a  "9" for trot AND canter.

Nobby was Dutch Champion in 2008 for the KFPS in  L2 dressage.

He has lots of character and LIKES to work.  His talent is MORE than proven by his show record.

As a 3-year-old, we was reserve champion at the 2007 Euro Cup Bottle.

He skipped the M2 level and the Z2 levels. He was capable of starting right away from the Z1 level (3rd level) to the ZZ-Light level (4th level).
He now has 7 points already in ZZ LIGHT!!!!!
