About - Firestone is a young stallion with excellent bloodlines, who has made a great start to his competition career. He is an elegant, modern type with power and expression, who brings in a dash of Thoroughbred blood from his third sire Painters Row xx.
Performance - As a 3-year-old, Firestone stood out due to his fantastic conformation and movement, which earned him the title of reserve champion at the KWPN Stallion Show. Afterwards, Firestone earned 82.5 points in the KWPN Performance Test and makes a great impression with Joyce Lenaerts in the KWPN Stallion Competition. In Ermelo Firestone finished fifth, in Roosendaal he ended up fourth and at the last competition in Zuidbroek, Firestone became third.
Sire - Johnson (Jazz x Flemmingh) is among the best grand prix horses currently competing. He finished 9th for the Dutch at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and was the Dutch star at the 2015 European Championships; spear-heading the gold-medal-winning team and taking home an individual bronze in the grand prix special. He was also on the Dutch team at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, never scoring below 74%. Johnson was overall champion of the KWPN stallion show in 2005, top ranked in the stallion series 2006-07, and 6th in the World Championships in Verden in 2007.
Damline - Damsire Florencio was world champion as both a five- and a six-year-old, while last year the KWPN awarded Florencio as ‘Keur’ sire. Florencio deserved this great title thanks to his offspring performing at Grand Prix level and the talented KWPN approved stallion Charmeur. Florencio passed away in 2016 leaving limited frozen semen available - Firestone is a valuable descendant of this extraordinary sire. Firestone was bred out of the famous "Bella" damline, which produced many successful showjumpers and dressage horses. Firestone’s full sister Elfi also earned 81.5 points the KWPN Mare Test and achieved an amazing score of 95 points for her trot at the KWPN Mare Inspections.
Progeny - Firestone’s first foals seem promising: they show charm, charisma and great movements.
