Governor was certainly the most talked-about stallion at the KWPN Stallion Show 2014. His great performances in the first and second round culminated in the reserve title at the KWPN Stallion Show. In autumn, he absolved his performance test with the highest score of 85.5 points. He became winner of this 50-days-test.
The best of Totilas and Parzival express themselves in this modern, beautifully built stallion who has a lot of self-carriage and a very good use of his hind legs, great balance and a super character.
Governor is perhaps the most well bred dressage stallion Dutch breeding has produced. His father Totilas is the best dressage horse of his generation, and has established many world records including World Champion ridden by Edward Gal. Governor's dam is the famous mare Orleans (Jazz x Ulft ), the full sister of Olympic horse Parzival (Adelinde Cornelissen). Orleans is 'preferent elite' and is already mother of TC Athene (by United), the Pavo Cup winner and participant in the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden. The full brother to TC Athene, Brentano, was designated for the performance test and also took part in the championships in Den Bosch.
Damsire Jazz has competed in and won international Grand Prixs. In 2002, she and Tineke Bartels were members of the Dutch dressage team at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez de la Frontera.
