Esther bought this stallion from the best French proven endurance lines when he was 18 months old. The only way to be able to afford such a promising horse like Watt du Colombier was to buy him young and hope he would be as good as his pedigree promised. And he was! With Watt, Esther has made the Dutch endurance squad, competing in the European Championships. Because proving Watt in competition was the most important task as of 2019 he has not been at stud yet and we eagerly await his first foals, likely in 2021.
Watt is a strong, compact stallion, measuring 1.51m. He has good conformation, well-shaped feet and a super canter. Watt has a low rest pulse and the typical fast “Persik recovery” in work. He is a gentleman, impeccably behaved at any event, and always 100% focused on the job ahead. He loves endurance, and it is clear he is the product of many decades of successful French endurance breeding. Both his sire and dam have produced champions, and Watt has many half, ¾ and even closer relatives that have done very well in endurance.
Watt has completed 2 160 3* events up to 2019, and he is part of the Dutch national endurance squad. He competed in the 2019 European championships and loves big events like this. Until 2019 all focus was on performance, every year there was a new challenge for Watt and Esther, so he was not used for breeding to minimise risks. Watt will continue to compete, but he will combine his rides with stud duties.
His first year standing at stud is 2020, and Groen Equestrian is expecting his first foals in 2021. Watt is standing in the UK, at this point he is not available frozen, but this can be arranged.
