Temperament: A real character, easy to deal with, very much a ‘people’ horse that just loves to work, with a tractable nature and a very quick learner.
Progeny: He has over 50 foals just in Ontario, some of which are very successful in hunter, dressage & eventing at the upper levels. Arwen, his daughter, won the 2007 Preliminary Cahmpionship at the Belvoir Horse Trials.
Achievements: Champion at the Training level in 1997, Holberg competed at Preliminary eventing in 1998.
In 1999, he competed solely in dressage – at Cornerstone Farms Spring and Summer recognized shows, he was Champion at both with all scores in the 60′s and an incredible 77%. At the 2001 Stallion Performance Test, and from the 2000 SPT, Holberg is the only stallion awarded a 10 in rideability! The remarks of the test riders at the 2001 Stallion Performance Test are most revealing. Awarding him a 10 for rideability, CET coach Peter Gray said “This magnificent stallion can come in my barn any time.” Jumping test rider, Erin Ballard said “My kind of horse. I didn’t want to get off him.” Jumping test rider, Chris Pratt said “Whatever I asked for, this horse was ready for me.”
Holberg competed at pure dressage with superb results (60’s) up to the PSG level and returned to eventing in the 2007 season with Ruth Armstrong. Holberg crosses well with both Thoroughbreds and Warmbloods, and passes on his incredible movement and superior suspension as well as his wonderful disposition.
