This attractive gelding by Spielberg is a serious prospect for the FEI arena! Ready for a competitive young horse to climb the levels? This boy has the gaits and rideability to make those dreams come true. His walk has a wonderful swing thru the body with ample overstep, the trot is expressive with reach, with a supportive and powerful hindleg and the canter has a clear uphill balance, clear separation of the hindlegs and freedom in the shoulder. If there’s any doubt in the bright future you can look to his half siblings, Suppenkasper (Steffen Peters’ Olympic mount) and Illuster Van De Kampert (Ben Ebelings Olympic Trials mount) or even Spielberg himself who was successful with his rider Joyce Lenaerts. At just 3 years old Nestor shows superior rideability and a sweet temperament. He loves people, cuddles, grooming and has an eager work ethic. He is the first to greet you in the stable with a soft whinny and his attention stays with the rider even with distractions outside of the arena. Easy to handle, trailer, shoe (currently shod in front), bath, etc. Nestor has no vices and has been extensively vetted with radiographs including neck and back.
Spielberg is a dressage stallion to dream of. His conformation is almost ideal and he is a true ‘Strahlemann’. Thanks to his great movements, he obtained as only one of the few Westphalian stallions the title ‘Prämie’ stallion.
Sire Sunny Boy is an acclaimed son of Sandro Hit out of the Donnerhall-daughter Fantastica – the full sister of the legendary Don Schufro and Don Primero. Spielberg’s grandsire Rosier brings in the precious genes of Rubinstein I, who was bred out of the famous damline of Olympic champions Ahlerich, Rembrandt and Amon.
Through dam Rosiera, Spielberg goes back to Rondula, who is also the granddam of the Grand Prix dressage horse Last Minute, ridden by Ilka-Kerstin Geiss.
Besides a great size, Spielberg adds a fantastic mind to today’s breeding of dressage horses. Thereby Spielberg has a lot of rhythm and balance in his movements.
