*First Generation Sim*

Valor is by the gorgeous black stud Painted Black. Painted Black was the top ranked Dressage Dutch Warmblood in 2007 and the 2007 Aachen Champion freestyle to music. In addition, to being a great competitor, he also is the sire of the most expensive foal ever sold in the Netherlands. Painted Black is by leading dressage sire Gribaldi and out of an Olympic Ferro daughter. Valor is out of Finesse. Finesse was the best broodmare in the Netherlands in 2010 and her dam, Wendelien was ranked as the 17th best broodmare. This particular dam line is proving to produce some of the best competitors as well as breeding horses. Finesse herself competed to grand prix level in dressage. Finesses sire Aktion is one of the most successful dressage sires in the KWPN. Aktion competed internationally in the most prestigious dressage competitions and although was set to compete in the Olympics twice, illness and injury prevented him from ever competing. Aktion has over a dozen offspring competing internationally at the grand prix level.

Valor is a noble mare and seems to know she is royally bred. She has a bit of an attitude and is not a mare who quickly trusts people. She is a mare who has to be convinced that you are trust worthy. Furthermore she is a one person horse and once she has found her person she will do anything for her rider. She will not perform the same with someone else. Her shorter back and leggy body allows her great ease in performing changes, pirouettes and collected movements. She is simply remarkable at piaffe and passage, you will be hard pressed to find a mare better at piaffe than Valor. She lives to perform and only does better the bigger the crowds. Valor has elegant gaits with tremendous elasticity and a great lightness which is reminiscent of her sire. She is the result of the sires in her pedigree and perhaps a perfect mixture of them. She is a special horse and will produce outstandingly well.
