Dressage stallion

Hennessy, the impressive, magnificent black stallion, was the KWPN performance champion in 2015 with no fewer than 82 points! In particular his tremendous canter, elasticity and excellent attitude were awarded no less than an 8.5. In addition he has a superb temperament and has already produced numerous talented offspring. You can view these too on this page.

Cast-iron genes

He has the blood of three top producers par excellence flowing through his veins: De Niro, Jazz and Ulft. The Grand Prix stallion De Niro had 86 approved sons in Germany alone, including Desparados. Edward Gal’s Glock’s Voice is just one of his many well-known offspring.

Grandsire Jazz is already a legend in dressage horse breeding and is famous for siring stars such as Glock’s Johnson TN and Jerich Parzival. The latter was the result of the proven Jazz x Ulft combination, which also strengthens Hennessy’s breeding.

Dam Silhouette

Hennessy’s dam, the elite, preferente mare Silhouette, is the full-sister of Christina Robinson’s (USA) approved Grand Prix dressage horse, Ragtime. She also produced the Z1 dressage horse Windy Cliff M.P. (Rohdiamant) and Masja Witteveen’s Z2 dressage horse Triorette M.P.


Hennessy’s offspring are characterised by their spectacular forehand and good development. The foals move well with great elasticity and good hindleg action in trot. Their canter has good scope, elasticity and balance.

Hennessy’s offspring have already shown that they are amongst the best. La Nadinda Altena for example was dressage foal reserve champion at the Zuid Holland Championship. Lord Hennessy B was reserve champion at the Friesland Championship. Latanya VDL was 3rd at the Harich foal inspection.

Hennessy showed a uniform collection of well-developed dressage foals with an appealing forehand. The hindleg conformation regularly stands under. The walk has good scope and is sometimes ‘toes out’. The trot has good scope and shows much elasticity with a hindleg that comes under well. The canter has ample scope and is well-balanced with good elasticity.

Breeding advice based on performance inspection and foals shown
Hennessy can improve the dressage model and can add size, appearance and elasticity of movement to dressage horse breeding.
