Buckpasser - 1966 Horse Of The Year [11:49]
Buckpasser (1963--1978) was an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who won nine of his eleven race starts for international record winnings for a two-year-old of $586090. He was leading broodmare sire in 1983, 1984 and 1989. Buckpasser was a bay colt that was bred and owned by Ogden Phipps and foaled at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. He was by the Horse of the Year winner Tom Fool, and his dam was the stakes-winning mare Busanda, by the Triple Crown winner War Admiral. Busanda's second dam was the Blue Hen broodmare La Troienne (FR). He was a half-brother to several other horses that included the stakes-winners Bupers (won $221688) and Bureaucracy ($156635). Buckpasser was inbred in the fourth generation (4m x 4f) to the French racehorse and an influential sire Teddy. Racing official Dr. Manual Gilman said of him, "Generally, every horse has about a hundred faults of conformation. I would defy anybody to pick a flaw in Buckpasser." Renowned horse painter Richard Stone Reeves said, "Buckpasser was the most perfectly proportioned Thoroughbred I have ever seen." Only two horses, Secretariat and Affirmed, have since been "in a class with Buckpasser". en.wikipedia.org

Kerry Thomas Explains Emotional Conformation of a Horse [01:21]
Horsemen traditionally have evaluated the physical aspect of horses to judge their capabilities. Kerry Thomas' emotional conformation technique evaluates the mental capacity of a horse in addition to the physical for a more complete holistic picture of the horse as an athlete. A new window into what was once a mystery is now being revealed. Thomas is a researcher and has pioneered these methods not only for the benefit of horse racing but for human therapeutic applications such as working with children with special needs, autism and with war heroes transition. The result of Thomas' work is the formation of the Thomas Herding Technique: Equine Athletic Psychology Specializing in Emotional Conformation Profiling. Thomas is the author of Horse Profiling: The Secret to Motivating Equine Athletes.

NUMERO UNO x BERSTEIN x BURGGRAAF x AMOR KWPN 02.04840, 1.71m, bay, 2002 Breeder: MTS. Stultiens Van Gogh was the undisputed KWPN performance test champion of 2005. During the last 6 years no other KWPN stallion has received as many points as Van Gogh at his performance test. This son by Numero Uno was not only rewarded for his great jumping skills but also his fantastic movements. Take off and technique was rewarded with 8.5, scope with 9.0 and his incredible canter with 9.5. The stallion performance test report states that Van Gogh shows strong movements in walk, trot and canter, that he jumps with a good take-off and develops lots of scope. The dam line of Van Gogh originates at the mare Miesje. In addition to Van Gogh's successful full sisters, this breeding family produced several international showjumping and dressage horses. Some examples are: Zhivago (s. Krack C), Cocktail (s. Purioso), Everest (s. Zeoliet) and Der Senaat III (s. President). The vice champion of the 2007 KWPN stallion competition achieved great results during several competitions in both Germany and the Netherlands.
