2018 KWPN colt with Olympic Dressage Breeding
N-Genius is a 2018 KWPN colt by U-Genius out of the premium Oldenburg mare Roman Holiday. He is a correct, modern colt, with good substance. He has three excellent gaits that are uphill and free through the shoulder. His trot is powerful and has great suspension, his canter is round and through with an excellent hind leg, and his walk is relaxed with great overtrack. N-Genius is sweet, brave, and has a curious nature who is easy to handle. Fancy enough for a professional yet easy enough for an AA, and he is destined for the FEI levels with international Grand Prix competitors on both sides of his pedigree.
Sire U-Genius (Uthopia x Negro) is a big and powerful horse at 17.3 hands with outstanding balance and gaits. His aptitude, ability, and willingness to listen and learn are extraordinary. U-Genius carries “Gold Medal Blood” on both his sire and dam side. Uthopia, was Carl Hester’s international Grand Prix superstar. Together they racked up numerous international Grand Prix wins, including Olympic and European Championship Medals. U-Genius has been training and working up the levels slowly. Most recently, U-Genius has been in training with Carl Hester himself, and it is anticipated U-Genius will be Carl Hester’s next international Grand Prix superstar.

U-Genius’s dam, Weidyfleur II (Negro x Gershwin), as the only full sister to the world famous Valegro, carries proven performance bloodlines at the highest of levels. Valegro’s successes include multiple Olympic, World, and European Championship Medals, as well as holding World records.
N-Genius’s dam is the premium Oldenburg mare, Roman Holiday, sired by the international Grad Prix stallion, Roman Nature. Roman Nature, who is by Rohdiamant, won the 3-year-old Stallion title at the 1998 Bundeschampionate and the 5-year-old stallion class at the big stallion show at Zwolle. Roman Nature when on to not only competed at Grand Prix, but did so in the Young Rider and U-25 divisions, which is a testament both his talent and to his character. In addition, Roman Holiday was the second highest scoring mare during her Oldenburg Mare Inspection in the country and currently has ALL premium offspring, including a stallion prospect, within FOUR different registries; the GOV, Oldenburg NA, Danish Warmbloods, and the KWPN.
*** Roman Holiday was hand selected by Claire Hester to be one of only six mares in the United States to be bred to U-Genius. This is a very exciting opportunity and a very rare foal here in the US.
