Everdale is a well-developed stallion that exhibits a beautiful dressage type. He has a strong topline with a well-connected loin and good muscling. His gaits are scopey and powerful with abundant elasticity and in his KWPN report he was particularly praised for his canter. Everdale is honest and diligent in his work and gives his rider a very positive feeling. These traits contributed to Everdale being named Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in 2012 with a total of 87 points. All his scores were 8 or higher, and he received scores of 9 for the walk, canter, rideability, and attitude. It was these same traits that allowed Everdale to commandingly win the 2013 PAVO Cup for 4-Year Olds, topping a field of 92 horses and earning an impressive score of 10 from his guest rider.
Everdale is by Lord Leatherdale, a popular young stallion in Holland that offers some of the best of German breeding with his pedigree. Lord Leatherdale presented three offspring that finished in the Top 10 at the 2011 PAVO Cup Finals and approved son Chippendale was the winner of the KWPN Stallion Show in early 2012. Everdale’s damline is exceptionally strong. His dam, Aliska K, is an Elite Mare by Negro. Negro had a very successful FEI career and has numerous offspring competing internationally in the past few years. Most noteably is the 2012 Olympic Team and Individual Gold Medalist, Valegro. Due to quality of his offspring, Negro has been awarded the coveted Preferent status by the KWPN. Everdale’s granddam is a Keur Preferent mare, while his great-granddam, Ilya, is a full sister to the KPWN approved stallion Havidoff and holds the Ster, Preferent and Prestatie predicates.
His first foals have been in high demand. In 2013, Ice King Texel was named KWPN Top Dressage Colt and In Time was top selling colt at the SELL Auction in Deurne. His first US foal crop arrived in 2014 with Justifiable P (ds. Wolkentanz) and Jezebel S.E. (ds. Jazz) both earning First Premium status. In 2016, the oldest Everdale offspring were presented at stallion licensings and a number of sons were accepted in Holland, Germany, and Denmark.
