Irvington is the first KWPN-approved stallion sired by the coming star Dallas VDL. Ridden by Jur Vrieling, Dallas is breaking through at the highest level of show jumper. The 9-year-old Dallas shows off his remarkable quality and scope every time he enters the arena. The son of Douglas seems to be able to jump anything and he is extremely careful. Dallas’ oldest offspring stand out due to their power and carefulness and Irvington is a great example of that. However, Irvington did not only inherit his showjumping talents from his sire Dallas; he also got them from his phenomenal grand sire Quick Star. Ridden by Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Quick Star performed at the very highest level and he nowadays lives on through his offspring: Olympic Champion Big Star, Orient Express HDC, Quick Study and many more. Further on in the pedigree of Irvington, foundation sire Notaris lays a great basis.\r\n\r\nIrvington’s dam line is no other than the strong Karin-line, which overflows of show jumpers and approved stallions. Dam Tanagra already produced the successful Grand Prix show jumper Banagro of Priscilla Klink as well as some other promising show jumpers. In addition, Tanagra is closely related to the international show jumpers Ceather, Vinity and Narcissist FBH. The famous Grand Prix-show jumper Desteny van het Dennehof, the Olympic horse Rolette and the World Cup Finalist Marlou are all closely related to Irvington as well.\r\n
After the KWPN Performance Test, the KWPN Stallion Committee awarded Irvington with a list of almost solely 8’s, to be added up to a total of 79 points. Irvington stands out with his temperament and mentality and shows great potential as a show jumper. Irvington clearly combines the reflexes of grand sire Quick Star and the scope of sire Dallas VDL.
