Bodyguard Breeding Info
2006. 171cm. KWPN Black Stallion By Gribaldi x Negro x Cocktail.
Bodyguard is a KWPN Approved, 11 year old, black stallion by Gribaldi x Negro x Cocktail. Currently competing internationally ST level. An ideal pedigree for a stallion that will both perform and pass that ability on to his progeny, closely related to both the Gold and Silver individual dressage medallists at the London Olympics. The KWPN has already awarded him the very impressive breeding value of 164 for dressage. He has over 80 offspring in The Netherlands and 30 in the UK. His offspring; Guard Ginia made a very high price at the 2011 Star sale of Foals in the Netherland, in 2015 he had his first KWPN Approved son, Guardian S which for a stallion himself still young is a huge success story for Bodyguard. Guardian S has already won many awards and Nationals in Holland, and another of his offspring, Gladstone won the Shearwater 2015 championships as a 4 year old. And has already won many five year old classes in 2016 at the Premier Leagues. Another of his offspring, has already qualified for the shearwater 6 year old championships at the Nationals. Bodyguard has the most amazing temperament and trainable attitude that he appears to be passing onto all his progeny.
Bodyguard’s pedigree is, of course, one of the main reasons for his success.
His Trakehner sire , the Grand Prix dressage horse Gribaldi is one of the most successful sire of dressage horses in the world today, having produced multiple Grand Prix dressage stallions approved across a wide range of studbooks. They include not only Hofrat (sire of the all-conquering Hotline) but also Painted Black and, of course, the phenomenal Totilas.
Gribaldi’s sire Kostolany is equally renowned as a source of dressage talent. The Grand Prix son of the legendary Ibikus his progeny include Showman, Sans Souci and Silvermoon (the sore in turn of the super mare Blue Hors Matinee.
On his dam’s side Bodyguard’s pedigree also exudes dressage talent. His dam Ulinda had a KWPN dressage breeding value of 159 (amazingly high for a mare) and as well as Bodyguard her offspring include the graded stallion Everest and a number of successful dressage horses and broodmares.
Ulinda’s sire the Advanced dressage horse Negro – one of the nearly 30 graded sons of Ferro — needs no introduction to UK audiences as he is the sire of the all-conquering Olympic Gold medallist Valegro as well as 14 graded sons to date. This record has already accorded him a very high ranking in the international dressage sires list as Valegro won the WBFSH award foo top dressage horse of the year in the autumn of 2013.
Ulinda’s dam Kolinda contributes yet further dressage talent to the pedigree as she is by the top international dressage stallion Olympic Cocktail, sire of Jazz (sire in turn of over 30 graded sons including the much admired young dressage stallion Johnson and of the stunning Grand Prix dressage horse and Olympic silver medallist Parzival), Hucarlos and Havel. This is also the family from which the promising UK-bred stallion Woodlander Del Amitri hails and with dressage breeding value of 179 and a reliability score of 92% Cocktail’s input to the qualities that Bodyguard is already showing in abundance cannot be under estimated.
Bodyguard had his first approved son in 2014, Guardian S – Bodyguard Moorland x Trento B. He has over 100 other offspring starting to make their mark in the young horse classes.
Bodyguard is currently competing at International Level ST, gaining 73% at PSG and 71% at Inter 1 level in the UK, He won Sheepgate Premier League PSG class in May 2017 qualifying him directly for the nationals in September. He has also been selected again for GB at Keysoe CDI and Hartpury CDI in July. To view his offspring that Lara has already please contact her and see pictures above.
