Dressage potential of an exceptional class – optimal paces for a dressage career of international demands
Top Gear was the outstanding Reserve Champion of the 2014 Oldenburg licensing. Unusually brilliant in type, coupled with an excellent limb structure and a large frame, a correct base and an immaculate exterior. Under saddle, he shines with three first-class gaits, transmitted from a swinging back, and is literally captivating. The 30-day-test in Schlieckau was very successful, Top Gear finished in the top group of the strong field of candidates with outstanding marks (including 10.0 for his character and 9.75 from the test rider). The sire Totilas has revolutionized the dressage sport over the last few years. He became double European Champion in Windsor in 2009, won three Gold Medals at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington in 2010 and set several world records.
