Bente D Has Been Retired From Breeding Due To An Injury

Bente D is a world-class jetblack  16.1 hd Friesian stallion

A real eye-catcher with powerful floating gaits and a stunning expression. Bente is a true Modern Friesian Type. He steals the show everywhere he goes, and absolutely has everything it takes to win in dressage.  He is training at Fourth Level and is a talented FEI prospect.

Bente has great presence, and loves getting attention. He was awarded with a 1 st premium for his fabulous conformation and gaits and will be presented for breeding approval.

Bente measures 16.1h. He has a great future ahead of him. Bente enjoys dressage as well as relaxing trail rides, and long grooming sessions. He is very comfortable to sit, and has forward and smooth gaits.

Bente's sire is approved FPS stallion Abel 344 who  has won numerous show driving competitions in Holland and produces impressive offspring for both dressage and driving. Bente's brother, Tonke was the big surprise of the large group of stallions selected for the FPS performance testing in 2001. He received great comments, as "the powerful Abel-son Tonke showed off with huge and expressive strides and was a treat to the eye... a great talent at work". During his performance test he was said to be a friendly stallion, with an even temperament in training as well as in the barn.

Bente is easy to work with and shows great training attitude, with elastic and powerful gaits. His canter is balanced with good "jump". He has a great front, and is an expressive mover.

Bente D has qualified to compete in the USDF Championships and the IFSHA Championships. Bente D is training at 4th level and will show at Prix St George in 2011.  Check out the Videos below.

Below is Bente's Pedigree information and pictures.

FPS Approved brother Tonke 391
Bente's dam is the Ster mare Fieke D by Remmelt 323 

Remmelt 323 has everything a modern Friesian should have. Measuring 166 cm or 16.1 hands, he has a luxurious and beautiful mane, tail and fetlocks. Impressively light but strong mover with the temperament of a gentleman.

His preferent father, Oege, had 70% ster mares and his mother's father, Hearke, was also preferent. Remmelt is always pleasant to work with and looks just as good under saddle as he does driving.

In dressage, he is Level Z2 in Holland against top national warmbloods. Remmelt won the 1995 Jon Timmer driving award. This was the first time it was won by a young stallion outside the province of Friesland. He placed first in 13 of 15 competitions
