2015 KWPN Champion stallion!
Franklin is an extremely interesting champion stallion by the popular and internationally recognized Ampére. Franklin won both the 2013 KWPN licensing and 50 Day 2013 KWPN performance test. In the performance test, he scored 9.5's for his canter and self carriage, and 9.0's for suppleness, rideability and dressage potential. He then went on to win the 5 yr. old championship at the 2015 KWPN national stallion show in s' Hertogenbosch under Spanish rider Severo Jurardo Lopez. He was rewarded a 9.5 for his trot, 8.0 for walk, and 8.5's for canter, rideability and general impression.
Franklin's offspring show a high dressage potential and several have inherited his beautiful expression and great movement with active hind legs and a strong topline. Several of his offspring have sold for top prices at auction including DWB Champion dressage filly, Faretti, who sold for 150,000 euros and was named DWB Filly of the Year in 2017. Her full sister, Farreti II was sold for top price at auction in 2018. Another successful filly is DWB Champion Dressage Filly, Francisca Lightfoot. Franklin's first crop of sons have been approved with Kadans becoming the reserve champion of the 2018 KWPN licensing.
Ampere had a resounding eight approved sons in 2014 in Holland, Westfalen and Holstein. Ampére was champion stallion at the 2008 KWPN licensing and later on, he won the stallion test (walk 8.0, trot 9.0, canter 9.5 and rideability 9.0).
Ampere's sire, Rousseau, won silver at the 2003 world championships for young horses in Verden and has been able to present the champion stallion in Holland three times in a row.
Franklin's dam line includes two of Holland's major breeding magnates, Ferro and Flemmingh.
