In the fall of 2016 Don Olymbrio was crowned Elite stallion by the Danish Warmblood Society at the age of 9. As well in breeding as in sport Don Olymbrio’s results are outstanding. 2017 was the year of his international breakthrough. Don Olymbrio did his first Grand Prix at a national show in Esbjerg. His international debut made Don Olymbryo at the CDI in Herning, at the same time as the Danish stalllionshow. This was followed by good results at the CDI in Hagen and the fourth place at the Danish Championships in Broholm. The good performances resulted in selection of Don Olymbrio for the Nations Cup in Aachen, where the team secured an outstanding fourth place. Breeding wise, in addition to Orion, who was premium stallion in Herning 2017, Blue Hors Don Olymbrio also sired a licensed son at the Hanoverian stallion licensing in Verden as well as two stallion prospects ready for the Danish Warmblood stallions licensing 2017 in Herning.
His talent is in the more difficult exercises, a talent he does not have from strangers – both his sire Jazz, and grand sire, Ferro, have competed at the highest level, and represented the Netherlands at the World Championships in dressage. Sire Jazz dominated the WBFSH-ranking for dressage sires for many years and is in 2017 the number 5. Jazz is probably the most influential Dutch breeding stallion of the past 25 – 30 years. He has sired a large number of licensed sons and elite mares, but the number of competition horses in the sport is second to none, making him particularly valuable to the breeding of riding horses.
Grand sire Ferro and his rider Coby van Baalen won team silver at the Olympic Games in 2000 and Ferro has founded his own stallion line in the Netherlands, which has given the stallions Rousseau, Metall, Rhodium and Special D. Like Jazz, Ferro has produced many successful dressage horses. His offspring are characterized by a convincing ability to collect, which is a very important quality for a dressage horse.
Don Olymbrio originates from one of the most successful Dutch dam lines (family 145), which has also given the Rubinstein-son OO Seven and Edward Gal’s Grand Prix horse Voice by De Niro, which has taken several Grand Prix victories and placings. Among other victories, the pair won the 2015 World Cup qualifier. Furthermore, the Grand Prix horses Celiton, Kadans and Olympic Babria, winner of the team silver at the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996 with Tineke Bartels, originate from this line. The great grand dam Ezabria won the Dutch Championships as a 3-year-old.
