Foundation Friday: Indoctro

Here is the next installment of Warmblood Stallions of North America’s Foundation Friday.  Every other Friday we will be featuring a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. We pull from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazine, published by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

In Holland he is known as VDL Indoctro, while in Germany, following the Holstein naming custom, he is C-Indoctro. By any name he is one of the world’s most successful jumping sires.

All over the world Indoctro has produced winners at Grand Prix and World Cup level. … In the USA, Indoctro was named the USEF jumping sire of the year. He ranks in 10th place on Bernard le Courtois list of the top 75 stallions of 2006. … On the 2013 WBFSH standings, Indoctro ranks 13th, with 59(!) representatives… The 2016/17 KWPN rankings has him in 31st spot with a jumping value of 129 (conformation – 104, free movement – 100, freejumping – 107.
