An exceptional pedigree stands firmly behind this talented stallion and his own talent is quickly propelling him up the FEI ranks. At his Stallion Performance Test, George Clooney earned scores of 8 or higher in all categories. He placed in the Top 10 of the KWPN Stallion Competitions and the PAVO Cup Finals and is showing now at Intermediate I. George Clooney offspring are well received at both inspections and competitions and, like their sire, we picture them headed towards the FEI ring.
George Clooney is sired by none other than De Niro who was Reserve Champion of his performance test with a score of 141.93. De Niro had a wonderful sport career with over 24 wins at S-Level and has firmly established himself as the top Donnerhall son to continue this legendary line. De Niro has been ranked at the very top of the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings six of the past seven years and was ranked 2nd the one year he wasn’t on top.
George Clooney’s dam is by Wolkentanz, the Weltmeyer son who was Champion of his Licensing, Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test with 140 points in dressage, and winner of the Bundeschampionat. The combination of George Clooney’s dam bred to DeNiro has been extremely successful and includes the full-siblings Despino and Delmar that are successful at Grand Prix. Maternal granddam Fricka brings the influence of the Thoroughbred stallion Forrest and she is also the granddam of Isabel Werth’s Don Johnson.
The first George Clooney foals arrived in the spring of 2015 and received positive reports from the KWPN commission. He’s shown to improve elasticity in movement and often adds some size. With the oldest offspring now undersaddle, we are also seeing a positive influence on rideability and temperament.
