-Argus, 1.70m, dark bay, was born in 1982 and bred by lady R.M. ter Veer at Zuidhorn, The Netherlands. He belongs to the very few horses in the world that simultanuously competed at both F.E.I. Dressage under Laurie Flavo and Oliver Luze (Argus in dressage.) as well as at Grand Prix Show Jumping under Hap Hansen (Argus in Show Jumping).

Argus is by the well known Pion -Abgar xx /keur out of Rozetta /pref, prest who is by the famous Jasper /keur-Courville XX /pref.

-Pion not only sired the KWPN approved stallion Argus, but also the KWPN approved grey stallions Aktion/keur and Democraat. Aktion performed at Grand Prix level Dressage and Democraat perfomed high at both Dressage as well as Show Jumping. The KWPN has placed both stallions in their TOP-TEN index for dressage stallions. Refer to the end of the KWPN index for dressage mares. Notice also Jade STV, dam of Nayade STV on place 118 of the TOP 250 index of dressage mares!

Grandsire Jasper was a well known international Show Jumper who competed internationally with Hugo Simon, under the name of LITTLE ONE. He is ranked 14th by the WBCSH in the Top 50 Jumping sires for the period l990 - 97. He also ranks 17th for the 1996 - 97 competition year. Jasper also won the Hamburg Derby and many Grand Prix.

Worthknowing
Dutch warmblood breeders do have an increasing demand for horses having Jasper blood in there pedigree as it has turned out to be a strong improving factor for the sports performance of the horse and its offspring. The sire line of Jasper's dam Garma /kroon traces back to the influential Oldenburger stalion line Girello-Wittelsbacher-Rubico, which is also the stallion line of the well known Groninger stallion Gambo-Gruson and of course the great stallion Sinaeda.

Dam Rozetta, holding the KWPN predicates 'preferent' and 'prestatie', is out of Laurine /ster who is by the famous and infuential Sinaeda /pref., who sired 17 approved sons and numerous daughters and grand daughters that gave birth to tens of approved sons on their turn.

Granddam Laurine, holding the 'ster' predicate, is out of Ijzeline /model who is by the well known and infuential Groninger stallion Commandeur /pref., who was in the NWP breeding service for 18 years (1949-1967).

The damline of Argus traces further back to the Groninger foundation mare Santine 3716 D (by Edelman I 106 D).


-Argus performed very well at his KWPN performance test in 1985 and claimed the 3rd place out of 24. His scores were: step-7, trot-7, canter-8, riding-7.9, jumping under saddle-9, free jumping-9, pulling-8, character-9, stable behavior-9 and training report-9. As a KWPN approved stallion Argus was exported to the USA immediately after his performance test, where he stayed until the end of his multiple sports carreer in 1993. In 1993 Jan Schep took Argus back to the Netherlands. Till mid 2003 He was standing at the dressage farm and stud STV (Stoeterij 't Vierspan) at Handel.
Mid 2003 Argus crossed the ocean again and is now standing at his current owner Sabir Spring Farm, Inc. in Canada.

-Argus descendant report summerizes 'A uniform collection of well developed foals with robust limbs. The movement shows much power from the hind legs. At 1989 American Keurings Argus produced 4 out of Top Ten foals in North America including 1st and 3rd. Among lots of other improvements Argus, having 62.5% gelderlander blood in his vains, passes on his wonderfull character to his offspring. Refer to Nayade STV.


-Argus (82.1217 Stb) - KWPN performance test report (Dutch)
-Verichting Ermelo 1985
Evenwichtig, intelligent met goed humeur. Gehoorzaam, vriendelijk en eerlijk. Bij begin onderzoek nog groen. Heeft tijdens de eerste helft onderzoek wegens hoesten veel moeite om tact in beweging te bewaren. Hoest wordt later minder, bewegingen kregen ook meer tact. Plezierig te rijden. Krachtige stap. In draf moeilijk in constante aanleuning te houden. Kort zweefmoment. Draf regelmatig met goed ritme. Sterke galop, goed en veel vermogen, evenals bij vrij springen. Presteert goed in terrein. Veel bereidheid om te werken. Ervaart werk als licht. Veel aanleg als dressuur- en terreinpaard, zeer veel aanleg als springpaard. Zeer rustig stalgedrag.

-Najaar 1985 export USA

-Afstammelingen 1986 (veulens)
Van deze naar de V.S. geexporteerde hengst werd een uniforme collectie goed ontwikkelde veulens getoond. Ze zijn rijtypisch gebouwd, hebben een goede breedte-diepte verhouding en fors, goed gesteld beenwerk dat iest meer kwaliteit zou mogen hebben. De hoofden zouden fijner en expressiever moeten zijn. De schoften zijn in het algemeen goed ontwikkeld en lopen voldoende lang door. Ligging en lengte van de schouders zijn goed. Het middenstuk is goed bespierd en heeft sterke verbindingen. De croupe is goed gevormd en eveneens goed bespierd.
Het voorbeen is opvallend goed gesteld met een best ontwikkelde voorknie. Stand en bouw van het achterbeen zijn goed en ook hier een best gevormd breed, lang spronggewricht. In stap wordt het achterbeen goed ondergebracht en is er sprake van voldoende ruimte. De veulens dragen met kracht vanuit de achterhand, cadans en regelmaat maar zouden nog iets meer schoudervrijheid en kniegebruik mogen tonen.

Kort samengevat: Uniforme collectie goed ontwikkelde veulens met fors beenwerk. Het bewegingsmechanisme vertoont veel kracht vanuit de achterhand.
Getoond: 11 veulens uit 39 dekkingen

Dekstation 1985 S. Bindels, Siebengewald

Fokregistratie:
1985: 39 dekkingen

- Argus: his most interesting pedigree
Extensive research has resulted in the utmost interesting pedigree shown below. Notice the remarkable great influence of the Oldenburg principal sire line Rubico-Norman that is also the sire line of enormous influential Dutch sire Gambo.

-- Argus /KWPN Stb. Int. GP Show Jumping + Int. Dressage simultanuously! Argus spent most of his life in North America and the fact that he was for almost 18 years in KWPN breeding service proves and emphasizes his recognized valuable quality for the Dutch warmblood breeding for the long lasting period of nearly 2 decades (1985..2003).
-- sire: Pion /KWPN Stb, also sire of the high ranking KWPN stallions Aktion/keur (GP) and Democraat. Pion (Abgar XX x Epigoon-Amor). Epigoon's grand dam Iris van Wittenstein out of Lady Reveil is by Cesar-Gambo who's sire line traces back to to the principal Oldenburg stallion Rubico-Norman
-- dam: Rozetta 19.264 /KWPN Stb, pref, prest
-- sire: Jasper /KWPN Stb, keur (In the Show Jumping arena also known as Little One). The dam(Garma)-sire and grand-dam(Zarma)-sire line there are at least 50 traces back to the principal Oldenburg stallion Rubico-Norman. Further in Jasper's dam line we find many infuential Arabians, including several times the well known and most influential Amurath OX according the following phrase of text: "In 1881 one of the greatest sires in the world was born. This was Amurath 1881 by Tajar 1873 out of Koheil III, given the "surname" Weil as an honour. He resembled his fabulous forefather to a great degree, which was no surprise since he carried 14 lines to Bairactar OA." See also articles 1 and article 2"
-- dam: Laurine 34.494 /NWP Stb, ster
-- sire: Sinaeda /NWP Stb, pref. The sire line of the great influential Sinaeda traces back to Gambo who's sire line traces back to the principal Oldenburg stallion Rubico-Norman. The well known and most influential Amurath OX appears twice in the dam line of Sinaeda. For Amurath OX See also dame line of Jasper.
-- dam: IJzeline 30.408 /NWP Stb, model
-- sire: Commandeur 12.77 /NWP Stb, pref. The sire line of the influential Commandeur traces back to the principal Oldenburg stallion Rubico-Norman. Also the dam line of Commandeur traces severals time back to the principal Oldenburg stallion Rubico-Norman. All together Rubico-Norman appears at least over 25 times in the pedigree of Commandeur.
