Clever and daring, suave and stylish, "Spy"'s pedigree reads like a who's who of the world's best performance bloodlines. His sire, Der Graf, is by the world famous Donnerhall, and out of a daughter of Pik Koenig. Der Graf's granddam Gina is a full sister to Hanoverian foundation sire Grandus. Der Graf has proven to be an outstanding, and prepotent, sire, with offspring competing successfully in dressage, hunters and jumpers.
Spy's dam, Solidarity, was a junior event horse, and is a daughter of the world famous jumper sire Galoubet. Her dam was an Intermediate level event horse, with a very successful record.
We've had very good luck with the Der Graf x Galoubet cross before -- Double Agent's full brother Deo, owned by Gwen and Pam Philips of Flower Mound, TX, is growing up to be an outstanding dressage prospect. Spy's 3/4 brother Darius, out of our very special old mare, Summit Peak, by Galoubet, is now a licensed stallion owned by Grand Prix jumper rider Daniel Geitner, and we look for him to follow in his famous sister Sympa's hoofprints, into the grand prix ring as well. 3/4 sister Double Take is a very exciting prospect for the jumper ring for owner Melissa MacNeil of Vancouver, British Columbia. And here on the farm we have outstanding 3/4 sisters Double Talk, and Daydream Believer as well .
Double Agent has been professionally started under saddle and is calm and willing under saddle. He moves with impressive balance, impulsion, and swing. He will wow in the dressage ring, but also should jump the moon according to his pedigree -- his gaits are free and athletic, we can see this gelding with a future in the highest levels of sport.
Double Agent has grown up in our big, hilly South Dakota pastures, while also spending time in the barn learning to be a cooperative partner. He's agile, sound and healthy, raised in the way that is best for young sporthorses. Call or email for more information.
