KWPN Keur stallion Van Gogh will focus fully on breeding in the future. The son of Numero Uno, now 17-years-old, was bred by Peter and Renate Stultiëns and was so successful in the jumping sport, first under Caroline Müller (GER) and later under Marco Kutscher (GER). For years the stallion competed at the very highest level, winning among others the LGCT Grand Prix of Valkenswaard and the EEM Longines Masters Grands Prix of Los Angeles and Hong Kong. At the stallion show of the Wiemselbach stables, Van Gogh will officially say farewell to the sport, after which he will be fully available for breeding. Van Gogh has been making a name for himself as a stud for several years now, and a wonderful future as a top progenitor awaits. A number of his offspring are already recording very appealing results in international competition; among others Bella Brown, Dena-Sienne, Ceylon, Vincent 163, Vallejo, Fabio and Giro de la Luna. Van Gogh’s son Innovation (ds. Contendro) is approved for the KWPN, and in 2016 Van Gogh himself was awarded the Keur predicate for his contribution to breeding.
