Namaste is a stunning 4 year old 17.1hh KWPN gelding with large elastic, international quality gaits. He is sired by the young horse revelation Franklin (Ampere x Ferro) out of a Premium (Redwine x Gribaldi) mare. He has recent clean leg, back and neck xrays on file and passed a rigorous PPE when purchased by his owner. He is schooling 1st Level movements well and calmly hacks outside. His scopey gaits, sweet personality and beautiful looks will make him a head turner in the dressage ring. He needs no lunging prior to riding and is the same horse after multiple days off. One you can just get on and go!

Namaste is sired by Franklin, an extremely interesting champion stallion by the popular and internationally recognized Ampére. Franklin won both the 2013 KWPN licensing and 50 Day 2013 KWPN performance test. In the performance test, he scored 9.5's for his canter and self carriage, and 9.0's for suppleness, rideability and dressage potential. He then went on to win the 5 yr. old championship at the 2015 KWPN national stallion show in s' Hertogenbosch under Spanish rider Severo Jurardo Lopez. He was rewarded a 9.5 for his trot, 8.0 for walk, and 8.5's for canter, rideability and general impression. Franklin is now competing internationally at PSG/I1 with fantastic results. His offspring are sought after under saddle horses known for their looks, gaits and excellent minds.  

Namaste is out of a Premium mare by the interesting stallion Redwine who brings multitalented sire Rotspon and dressage refiner Matcho AA to the table. His dam's dam is a lovely Premium KPWN mare stemming from Gribladi (sire of Totilas) and jumper talent Burggraaf. Some jumper influence aids in powerful canter mechanics allowing Namaste to not only have a super trot but also a naturally uphill canter with lots of jump. 

Namaste is located in Uxbridge ON one hour north of the Toronto Pearson International Airport and is available for trials. Airport pick up and accommodation assistance is available. He has an excellent full set of baseline radiographs (neck, back, fetlocks, hocks, stifles and feet) available. He sells with vet records and receives no joint injections or maintenance to stay sound and healthy. He is a calm full night urnout horse with no vices and is easy to trailer, clip and care for.
