2020 was a challenging year for racking up new successes in showing or breeding recognition - but Royal Tourmalet did just that.

Royal Tourmalet SPF
is a 2011 Hanoverian by Royal Prince out of MS Adira by Armin. Here are the highlights of his success for 2020:

  • Royal Tourmalet SPF was presented to Sebastian Rohde of the GOV at the June 2019 Inspection, held at Liberty Farm in Middleburg, Virginia. He then passed both his Veterinary Exam and Radiographic Exam and earned his initial GOV License. Highlights of his inspection included comments on his balance and temperament, active hind leg, strong medium paces and prepotency of these traits in his offspring. In 2020, Royal Tourmalet SPF completed his GOV Sports Test for his Full Approval and Lifetime License in GOV Stallion Book 1.

  • He also became an Affiliate Stallion with KWPN-NA. This is a new category with the KWPN/NA for stallions who are approved by other "erkend" studbooks (WBFSH recognized). Foals by Affiliate Stallions can be eligible for registration with KWPN/NA.

  • Royal Tourmalet SPF competed at Dressage at Lexington in October 2020 and PVDA Fall Dressage in November 2020. He earned scores up to 71.026% at Fourth Level and earned enough points to win the USEF Silver Stirrup National and Zone Awards. Ridden by Wanja Gerlach.

Royal Tourmalet ("Artie") has been racking up successes since the year he was born, when he was the top-scoring foal at his inspection. Among other highlights, in 2016 he was GAIG/USDF Grand Champion Stallion, Breeders Championship Series - East Coast Final at Dressage at Devon. In 2015 he was awarded the much-coveted Dr. Robert Miller Memorial Perpetual Trophy as the Highest Scoring American Bred Stallion at the prestigious Dressage at Devon Breed Show.
