We are absolutely thrilled to offer Australian breeders access to such a World Class stallion- OO Seven. He has not only been competitve in Holland to Grand Prix level, he has also become an influential sire in the KWPN studbook. He has produced literally hundereds of offspring who are super competitive dressage horses in Holland – 70 of which are competitive at FEI level. No stallion in this country can boast the success of their offspring like OO Seven!
00 Seven was champion of the KWPN Performance test in 1999. He was the highest graded dressage stallion with a score for walk 8, trot 9, canter 9, ability for dressage 9. The jury described him as a top genetic dressage horse of the modern type. He has light movements with exceptional presence and balance. He is an eager worker.
He is a unique combination of top class pedigrees including Rubinstein 1 and Doruto, the world’s best dressage producers ever. His dam Gelbria is a full sister to Olympic Barbria. Expectations are high for 00 Seven because of his outstanding pedigree. Sire Rubinstein 1 was active on the highest level in dressage, and his dam Gelbria also competes at Grand Prix level. Almost 70 sons of the legendary Rubinstein 1 are approved and several of his young stock are winners in the show ring and are successful in competitions. Rubinstein 1 offspring also guarantees good prices at auctions. Dam Gelbria is by Doruto out of the Amor-mare Ilbira. Ilbria is also dam of Vobria, who is dam of the Grand Prix dressage horse Celiton. Both Barbria and Celiton had a significant input for the KWPN, being the best studbook according to the WBCSH in 1999.

Rubinstein is considered one of the all time great sires and dressage competitors world wide. The double world champion and fourfold European champion was the world’s most successful dressage horse for a long time. His full-brother Amon also took part in the Olympic Games three times (if one includes Rotterdam in 1980) and was the most successful dressage horse of the Netherlands under Annemarie Sanders-Keyzar, where he was considered to be unbeatable for a long time, gaining the Dutch Championship title seven times. In October of 2000, Amon passed away at the ripe old age of 32 years. Then there is Rembrandt,
the elegant dancer, who with Nicole Uphoff glided through the big dressage arenas of the world, enchanting the public with his fantastic agility. He won individual and team gold with his rider twice, making her the youngest Olympic champion of all times, breaking the sonic barrier of the magic 1500 points delimitation in 1990 and becoming world champion.
Rubinstein is known as a great improver for the breed. He consistently passes on his wonderful temperament and movement. The youngstock of Rubinstein are very popular with riders- both professional and amateur for their willingness to please.
Rosenkavalier is considered to be one of the most significant Westphalian sires. He was the winner of the Stallion Performance Test at Warendorf in 1983.
He sired 471 registered offspring. His most famous sons include Rubenstein and the Grand Prix dressage horse Rubens. His offspring have been successful in the dressage ring and the show jumping arena alike.
