Description

Rock of Gibraltar was a premium stallion of the Westphalia premium stallion licensing in 2012. With his thoroughly modern silhouette, he brings "new blood" to the stud.

The colt embodies much grace and charm, and is equipped with first class basic gaits. First saddle tests have shown he is destined to be a future sire for superior rideability.

His sire, Rock Forever, has proven his versatility by victories in the highest level of dressage. According to the FN breeding value estimation, he is one of the most versatile sires ever.

The dam's sire, Fürst Heinrich, who was retired early, was the champion stallion at the 30 day trial tests in 2001, the Oldenburg supreme champion in 2002, and was celebrated as the world champion of five-year-old dressage horses in 2003. With Van the Man and Fürstenball he has twice sired the Oldenburg champion stallion.

The grandmother Roxanne produced two accredited stallions, Don Revelino and the premium stallion Prince Romadour, being a full-brother to the dam.

Through Rivellino xx in the third generation, the highly desired ‘shot' of thoroughbred blood is also present. From Renoir I, Gottschalk and Dompfaff, further generations shine with well-proven performers of NRW-breeding.

The dam line is of Hanoverian origin, and based on the highly regarded and exclusive Westphalian mare family 45/Akade (v. Alcove I - Altlobitz - Youatt, etc.), the roots of which go back well into the 19th Century. From here came Fein Kavalier (PB Oldenburg), Fürst Fantasy (NL) and Radiant (state stallion in Warendorf), as well as numerous other true performance horses competing successfully at advanced dressage and jumping.

Meanwhile, Rock of Gibraltar is successful in the USA.
