Farrington descends from a sound, well bred family. He is one of the few approved stallions with the blood of Doruto in his veins. Doruto sired many top dressage horses such as: Olympic Barbria, Chevalier, Ideaal, and more.
His sire, Wellington, is also well known as a producer of great movement in his offspring and sired dressage horses like Bollvorms Ceylon and Luxaflex.
Due to a fracture in his leg, Farrington was not able to perform in the sport, which is a pity because of the great talent he possesses. During his Stallion Test he obtained an eight for his basic gaits.
His daughter, Perry, became Dutch Reserve Champion in the class for 3 year old mares and Theandra became Dutch Reserve Champion of the ‘Keur and Elite’ mares. Farrington’s offspring perform very well in the sport. His son Michigan was the 2005 winner of the Individual Gold Medal at the North American Young Rider Dressage Championships in the USA. Another famous horse who is competing at Grand Prix level is, Limited Edition.
Farrington sires horses with a willing character and good basic gaits. These are requirements for top performances in dressage.
Farrington: for very good reasons, he is a ‘Keur’ stallion.
