Ustinov, from champion to top progenitor
In 2004, the fabulous Ustinov was the champion of the KWPN Stallion Show. He showed his extreme jumping qualities, athletic ability and outstanding hindleg technique at free jumping. Characteristics with which his offspring are also often blessed. Under Caroline Müller the very careful Libero H son proved his qualities in the sport up to international 1.50m level and Ustinov also has a good reputation as a sire. For that reason he received the keur predicate of the KWPN in 2015.
At 1.50/1.60m level multiple Ustinov offspring are in the spotlights, such as Ridley (Daniel Coyle), Grupo Prom Barola (Jose Alfredo Hernandez Ortega), Daylight HDH (Bianca Schoenmakers), Dustin (Fredrik Spetz), Penelope Cruz ( Brian Cournane), Ekimov (Anouk de Ruijter) and Ewinita (Lennard de Boer). A remarkable percentage of Ustinov’s offspring performs at 1.30m level or higher, and that makes for certain that he is a favorable contender in breeding. In the Dutch Sport Horse Sale, 15 of Ustinov’s offspring were sold for a total amount exceeding 1.2 million euros.
Ustinov has very good origines, as the son of the legendary World Cup winner Libero H (Jos Lansink), bred out of the UTV vice champion Haifa. She also foaled the KWPN approved stallion Nijinski, who has performed well as a hunter in the USA. A full sister of Ustinov foaled the very meritorious Grand Prix show jumper Sterrehof’s Calimero of Marc Houtzager.
