Two young dressage horses have been approved for breeding for the SBS studbook following the 2013 SBS Stallion Licensing held in Gesves, Belgium on 9 - 10 March 2013. The SBS studbook is a smaller breed society in Belgium mainly focusing on show jumping breeding.
Twenty-two colts in total were accepted for SBS breeding out of a crop of 45 stallions. Two dressage colts were positively assessed by the licensing committee.
The first approved dressage stallion is the 5-year old Westfalian bred Rubin Cartier, by Rubin Cortes out of Dutch warmblood mare Utah (by Gribaldi x Variant). The stallion is owned by the Dutch based Frea Plantaz.
The second licensed dressage stallion is a 3-yearold Westfalian registered Showdancer. Sired by Stedinger out of Diva (by Donnerhall x Weltmeyer), this dark bay stallion is owned by IPS and Tom Franckx.
