Improv's father Ampere:
Is a renown, international stallion who has produced multiple incredible licensed sons and himself was a success from the start, when he left the arena as the most expensive foal at the foal auction Borculo. He was the Champion stallion at the 2008 Don Bosch stallion show. Winner of the 70 day performance test in Ermelo, with the following marks; walk 8, trot 9, canter 9.5, suppleness 9, self carriage and balance 8.5, rideability and work ethics 9, talent for dressage 9. Ampere became one of Sweden's most popular dressage stallions in the six years he stood at Tullstorp. He led the Swedish breeding rankings in 2011 and 2013. One of his first offspring was sold for record price of 300,000 euro at an elite foal auction. Ampere has sired top stallions like Franklin, All At Once, First Ampere and more.
Ampere is the third (Wamberto, Blue Hors Zack and Ampère) licensed stallion by Rousseau to become Dutch licensing winners 3 years in a row. Rousseau himself was silver medalist at the World Championships for young horses in 2003.
Ampère’s dam sire, Flemmingh, counts as a supplier of international top horses like Krack C (Anky van Grunsven) or Lingh (Edward Gal).
Improvs mothers sire Contango:
Contango was a legend in his own time, both as a sire and a performance horse. Contango had a successful career as a Grand Prix show jumper in the Netherlands before switching to dressage. As a dressage horse, he won 33 Grand Prix classes, including six championships. His legacy as a sire cannot be overstated. He is the sire of dozens of grand prix jumpers and dressage horses, including Ravel, Alcazar and Caravella, along with seven Approved stallions. At the time of Contango’s passing, he was the only Preferent stallion in North America. Son Ravel represented the U.S.A. in two Olympics, and made history with his clean sweep at CHIO Aachen in 2009, his victory in the 2009 Rolex FEI World Cup Dressage Finals and two medals at the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in 2010. Son Alcazar won numerous CDI Grand Prix and represented the U.S.A. on various European tours. Daughter Caravella won a team silver medal at the Pan American Games, numerous CDI Grand Prix and represented Canada in both the WEG and the Olympics. Contango’s legacy continues. He was the # 4 USEF Dressage Sire in 2017 with 44 offspring earning USEF points, including 17 horses competing at the FEI level. Contango was ranked #3 USEF Dressage Sire in 2015 and 2016.
Improv possesses all of the fine qualities that make up successful dressage horses. Just as remarked about his sire Ampere, Improv gives a wonderful feeling under saddle. And he is a must see.
