The offspring of our stallion Franklin, win, and win, and win. With Fendi, the first of them has now stepped onto the Grand Prix scene... and won the prestigious final of the Louisdor Prize with Sönke Rothenberger with almost 80 percent and a clear lead over the competition. And the list of Franklin’s successful offspring can easily be extended, with the high-flyers, King-Time and Kavira, who are successful in Small Tour. In 2022, Kavira was placed at the World Championships for young dressage horses with Sofie Lexner/SWE, as was Slangerupgaards Flottenheimer with Eric Guardia Martinez/ESP. Francis Drake OLD, who came eighth at the World Championships for young dressage horses in 2021, won the Children’s Nations Cup in 2022 with Martha Raupach.

Franklin, KWPN Champion Stallion, stallion performance test winner, finalist at the World Championships for young dressage horses, placed up to Inter I and named Elite Stallion in Denmark in 2021, has produced numerous licensed stallions, including the Reserve Champions Franklin's Love PS, Kadans and our Oldenburg Regional Championship bronze medallist, Fair Deal. Further sport showpieces of Franklin include: Elektra di Fonte Abeti/Frederico Migue Mexia de Almeida/POR, Hanoverian Vice Champion, Franklin Hit/Michael Eilberg/GBR, British Vice Champion, and Mambeau B/Antonio Verdejo Pérez/ESP, bronze medallist at the Championships for young dressage horses in Spain.

In 2021, Franklin’s daughter Faretti was awarded the gold medal at the Elite Mare Show in Denmark. Faretti was the best DWB dressage filly in 2017 and was sold at the Nordic International Sales Auction for the sensational price of 150,000 euros. Her full sister Faretti II was the top price the following year. In 2020, the filly Fascination was sold for 60,000 euros at the Schockemöhle/Helgstrand Online Foal Auction. The title of best filly went to Franklin’s daughter Francisca Lightfoot in 2016 and to her paternal sister Vilard's Fina in 2021.

His sire Ampère, KWPN Champion Stallion and stallion performance test winner, produced the successful Grand Prix stallions Abegglen FH NRW/Victoria Max-Theurer/AUT, Attraktiv/Ivan Nieto Sanchez/ESP, Amandori/Simone Pearce/AUS and the Olympic Games participant All at Once/Yessin Rahmouni/MAR. Also a participant in Tokyo: Flambeau/Larissa Pauluis/BEL. His state premium daughters are led by the Westphalian Champion Mare Anky and the mare Amicella, who produced Valverde, Westphalian Champion Stallion, German and Westphalian Champion, finalist at the World Championships for young dressage horses and placed in international Inter II competitions. Numerous auction top prices have also been recorded.

The pedigree of Franklin shows highly interesting line breeding to the stallion legends Ferro and Flemmingh. The dam’s sire Ferro won three championship silver medals. With Coby van Baalen/NED, he was part of the Dutch team that was placed second at the 1998 World Equestrian Games in Rome/ITA, at the 1999 European Championships in Arnhem/NED and at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney/AUS. Furthermore, he was placed second in the World Cup final in ‘s-Hertogenbosch/NED. He has produced 17 licensed stallions, including Rousseau, Negro, Metall and Rhodium. In the Netherlands, he received the predicate “keur”.

The maternal grand-sire Flemmingh is one of the most important dressage sires in the Netherlands and has produced the Grand Prix stallions Krack C/Anky van Grunsven/NED and Lingh/Edward Gal/NED.
