2003 17hh KWPN Stallion (Preferent)

Jazz Stb pref / Matador II / Rubinstein I

Wynton, by Jazz, is among the most accomplished dressage sires to ever stand in North America. Rarely can one find a stallion, with the gaits to shine in international young horse competitions, which matures to become a World Cup level Grand Prix horse, and then excels as a sire of exceptional breeding and competition offspring through the Grand Prix level.

Wynton’s career in the show ring begins with his win of the 2008 Pavo Cup and culminates with a successful campaign at the International Grand Prix level.  In addition to competing at the CDI level throughout Europe, Wynton represented the Netherlands twice at the World Cup, a freestyle competition where he achieved the marvelous score of 77% in 2018. Highlights of Wynton’s career include:

  • Winner of the 2008 Pavo Cup Finals (the KWPN national young horse championships)
  • Winner of the 2008, 2009 and 2010 KWPN Stallion Division at the Pavo Cup Finals
  • Finished 4th and 7th in FEI 5-Year-Old and 6-Year-Old divisions at the 2008 and 2009 World Young Horse Championships in Verden, Germany, where he represented the KWPN breed
  • Successful competitor at the international Grand Prix level and 2-time World Cup competitor.  Wynton scored over 77% in the Grand Prix Freestyle at the World Cup in Neumünster with his rider Madeline Witt-Vrees, who trained him from a young horse.
  • Wynton was named Champion of the KWPN Stallion licensing at the 70 day testing for three year olds in 2006.  He earned nines for his trot and canter, an 8.5 for his walk and a 9 for overall capability as a dressage horse.

Wynton is a son of the Preferent stallion Jazz, the leading sire of the KWPN studbook. Jazz passed away at the age of 29 in January 2020, after leaving an indelible stamp on dressage breeding worldwide.  He distinguished himself as a producer of Grand Prix horses, while also siring 13 licensed sons and 99 preferent daughters.

  • Jazz is a legendary sire of international Grand Prix horses.   The WBFSH (World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses) ranked Jazz number one in the world as a dressage sire in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and again in 2019, and for more than a decade, Jazz was always ranked in the top five.
  • Jazz himself was also consistently top-placed Grand Prix dressage competitor.
  • His bloodline is now among the most sought after in the world, as his genetic prepotency has been proven with many licensed sons, top mares and superior dressage performance horses.

Wynton’s dam is the prestatie mare Acacia

  • Grand Prix dressage champion Matador II (by May Sharif), ridden so successfully to the Olympic level by Kyra Kyrkland, is the sire of Acacia.
  • Acacia’s damsire is the Westphalian stallion Rubinstein, another legendary sire of sports horses.  Rubinstein offspring are universally treasured for their tremendous “willingness to work” and well-balanced gaits.

Wynton’s offspring record is so extensive that a summary cannot do it justice.  For example, from his first foal crop in 2008 alone, at least 14 of his offspring have reached the FEI levels.  Wynton has already sired five KWPN approved sons, whom, like their sire and grandsire, are excelling in competition and not just breeding.

Wynton was awarded the prestigious keur predicate in 2018.  The keur predicate is awarded by the KWPN to stallions that have proven exceptional, when compared to other stallions, with regard to the performance ability and conformation of their offspring.  The ability to transmit good conformation is prerequisite for keur status. Wynton is prepotent for the following attributes:

  • A strong, active hind leg, with impressive engagement from behind, and a special ability for collection
  • Excellent rideability
  • Very good type with correct conformation
  • Although tall himself, Wynton does not reproduce his height, instead he will leave the height to the mare.
