This young stallion with the nerves of steel will be named Nymphenburg’s First Ampere in the future – also in sport. First tests under saddle have shown that a very special horse is in the making here.
First Ampere enhances his success records with the bronze medal at the German Championships in 2016 in Warendorf and with a final placing at the World Championships of five-years-old dressage horses in Ermelo/NED. In 2015 First Ampere had won riding and dressage competitions for youngsters in series, among them the Elmlohe winner prize. In 2014 First Ampere took gold at Hanoverian Championships and bronze at National Championships.
First Ampere’s son Flying Dutchman was the top auction horse with 95.000 Euro at the foal auction in Muenster-Handorf and the most expensive offer of all Westphalian foal auctions ever.
His sire Ampere, bred in the Netherlands and with lots of Holstein genes in his pedigree, was the KWPN Champion Stallion 2008. He won his stallion performance test with excellent scores of up to 9.5for his canter and very good scores for all of his gaits, ride ability and talent for dressage (9.0). Ampere sired 15 sons among his first crop that were licensed just in Germany.
The dam’s sire Weltruhm was schooled up to advanced (S) level and sired many horses that were sold at auctions in Verden for high prices.
The granddame Lonely Heart was also bred to Connery which resulted in a licensed, black, premium stallion named Charles Aznavour.First Ampere combines outstanding type values with three first class gaits and when he moves, he has an elasticity that is simply awesome. These traits certainly helped to catapult him into the premium ring at the 2013 Hanoverian licensing in Verden.
The dam’s sire Latimer was a Bundeschampion and won dressage tests up to advanced (S) level.
The dam line continues through All-round, an Argentinus son, going back to Lugano II, Duft I, Frühsport and Poet xx – all sires very popular in their day.
