AJS Dressage Horses present this lovely imported 2007 KWPN mare, Chenin-O. She by by the sensational Dutch stallion Negro who is quoted to be an "Honest, reliable stallion that really likes to go. The walk is big and powerful, his trot has a lot of impulsion, and he has a scopey, powerful canter.” The uniformity of type, uphill balance, and powerful gaits come through strongly in Negro’s offspring as well as his intelligence and enthusiasm for work. He consistently produces horses with all the qualities needed to excel in the FEI dressage arena and their character often makes them a favorite of their riders.
Chenin-O is out of a Sandro Hit mare. His progeny, foals and horses are top at auctions; he sired several champion stallions, participants at championships, Grand Prix winners up to participants at the Olympics. From 2010-2012 he won the USEF/Performance Horse Registry Leading Sire Award` in the USA as the best dressage sire. He has sired 11 winners of the Bundeschampionship. As a six year old, he won the Bundeschampionship and became World Champion of the six year old dressage horses. He is currently one of the best producers of dressage Grand Prix horses.
Chenin-O exhibits all the quality traits from her sire and dam sire. She has big powerful gaits with an expressive active hind end. She has enthusiasm in her work ethic. She exhibits no "mare-ish" behaviors and is super at a show and at home. Chenin-O has been shown through Third level by her owner and was recently debuted at Fourth level in Wellington, FL finishing just under a 68% her first time in the ring at Fourth level. She has been trail ridden and hacked extensively. Although she is very safe and completely bombproof, she is a very forward thinker and likes to go. Currently, she is schooling all of the Prix St. Georges work at home and has been started on her Piaffe and Passage. With lots of chrome and flashy gaits she is a stand out at the horse shows and never goes unnoticed.
She is lovely in the barn and loves treats and attention. She enjoys being groomed and handled every day. She has no vices in the barn and although she would be suitable for an amateur or young rider she has the quality to take any professional into the highest of the FEI levels.
