Thanks to his gorgeous confirmation and fantastic movements, Formidable was not only approved in Westphalia, but also honored as ‘Prämie’ stallion. Formidable lives up to his name with his confirmation and movements, but also has a pedigree to dream of. Sire Fidertanz is developing into one of the greatest sires of Germany and ridden by Portugal’s António Do Vale, Fidertanz successfully performs at Grand Prix level. In breeding, Fidertanz meets all the expectations, with already more than 40 approved sons, including the champion Flanagan, Feedback, Foundation and Franziskus. Additionally, Fidertanz produced several champions at the Bundeschampionat and his oldest offspring already performs successfully at Prix St. Georges level.
Formidable’s grandsire De Niro and great-grandsire Weltmeyer have developed into true foundation sires for the breeding of dressage horses. De Niro is indispensable as a sire of famous Grand Prix dressage horses like Desperados, Dablino, D’Agostino, Donnerfee and Glock’s Voice.
Formidable’s damline also strengthen his genes: dam Deseada SL is a ‘Staatsprämie’ mare and produced the approved stallion Belstaff (De Niro x Brentano II), which performs at Prix St. Georges level. In addition, Granddam Wylie AS is the full sister of Grand Prix dressage stallion Whisper, ridden by Brett Parbery and Jody Hartstone.
