‘A KWPN Keur-awarded Sire’

KWPN Studbook Quote; “The Burggraaf son Mermus R has a high jumping index thanks to the outstanding performances of his offspring.  They are known for their good jumping form at selections and in the sport”

Mermus R was awarded the Keur predicate for his outstanding contribution to breeding by the KWPN, alongside other stallions such as Numero Uno, Heartbreaker, Berlin, Van Gogh, Verdi and several others.  He was used to promote their studbook at the annual stallion show in the Netherlands. A true successor of his world famous father, BurggraafMermus R was a successful performer in his own right, completing an outstanding talent test in his inspection with good basic paces. This included an impressive canter (8.5) and for take-off, technique and power, he scored 8.5, 8 and 9. Mermus R originates from one of the best dam lines available.  Bred in Holland by Stal Roelofs, Mermus R is the culmination of more than 30 years of selective breeding.  His dam, Dwermie, is by the “stallion of the century” Ramiro Z who has sired winners at Olympic level. Dwermie is also the mother of the KWPN-approved stallions Wender R.

It takes an exceptional stallion to maintain an internationally successful reputation in this industry. Year after year, Mermus R produces the goods at the highest levels worldwide. Mermus R continues to be popular with breeders and riders alike, his first Irish-born progeny are now rising 7 years old.
