* Highest scoring foal in NA, on 1999 SWANA Inspection Tour

* Evaluated as stallion prospect as weanling, yearling, & 3-year-old by SWANA

* Grand Champion at first USDF DSHB Show

* 84% from Hilda Gurney; 9 on trot

* 7th Place Colt/Geldings at Dressage at Devon

* 2001 Reserve Champion Colts/Geldings: USDF HOY Awards

 

Akkurat is the perfect modern type, sport horse. He is energetic, but easy to handle, and has very elastic, balanced gaits. He has been a winner, at everything he enters. He was approved, as a breeding stallion, with the RPSI & AWS, before we decided to geld him. He was started under saddle, Oct. 25, 2002, and proved his intelligence and excellent temperament. He is sensitive and very willing, and is showing talent for GP Dressage.

 

* Because we already had our stallion, we decided to geld Akkurat on May 16, 2003. This decision was very difficult to make, and had nothing to do with his temperament or"stallion qualities". It was something we needed to do, as our farm is not set up for managing 2 stallions. We believe Akkurat will be very happy as a gelding, and will go on to be a very successful dressage horse.

(Just as a side note; the vets, at UGA, where he was gelded, commented that they rarely see such well mannered stallions, and were very impressed with his temperament and beauty)
