Livius has put down a whole row of stable and good classifications in 2021. It started with the qualification for 5-year-old dressage horses. Here Livius showed himself extremely well under Gerrel Vink and they were allowed to participate until the last selection. Then the Pavo Cup, in the semi-finals they came in 7th place with 84 points and during the final they got a nice score of 83 points. This was also a very nice closing for Gerrel Vink and after that Livius came under the saddle of top rider Danielle Heijkoop, who immediately started him in the KWPN Stallion Competition after a short period. We see their progress per competition and Livius, in our opinion, will develop into a very fine and workable dressage horse and seems to have a lot of talent for the collection.
In 2021 his foals again made a big impression at the foal inspections and auctions in the Netherlands. He gives a high average to very good moving foals with an extra front leg. A topper that can certainly be mentioned in Riley Rules mv. Florencio bred by Annabel Bonhof-Hosmar who sold at the EDS auction for €40,000.-
Everywhere we saw the foals of our stallion Livius stand out last summer with their fantastic front leg. They sold very well at several foal auctions. During the Excellent Dressage Sales, no fewer than 4 of his foals were sold for more than € 100,000! His dam Blueberry-Utopia was always praised for her mega front leg. Livius himself also has a great front leg, in addition to his mother and mother's father Vivaldi, this is so strongly anchored in him that he passes this on very strongly to his children. This, in combination with the strong connections that his sire Bordeaux passes on, can make Livius an extremely strong breeding stallion.
