1.74 – dark brown – 2003 – KWPN, NRPS
A top talent rises
Strength, size, strong back, strong loins, correctness of conformation, powerful paces, ability to change, ability to sit, excellent trainability and most of all “go”!
These are all qualities that must be present in a modern dressage horse but are rarely found together in one horses.
The impressive Netto has them all in abundance.
These qualities do not come by accident however – because Netto is very much a product of his breeding.
Netto is a son of the top preferent sire Negro (Ferro), a sire who himself possessed the same qualities and passes them on to his offspring including the double Olympic gold medal winning horse “Valegro“
In addition, Netto is from a very strong performance line (both dressage and jumping) on his maternal side. This line has produced many international horses.
This strong performance orientation and a top mentality runs as a common thread through this maternal line and may largely be traced to the most successful thoroughbred stallion ever in Holland, the Preferent sire Courville xx.
Netto is now at the start of his international career having won at small and “middle” tour competitions he will shortly be making his Grand Prix debut.
