    Studbook Stallion Arjen 417 Sport continues to develop his training in dressage where he made his debut at Prix St George with his rider Bennie van Es where he was placed third with a score of 62.24%.

    Arjen is the sire of our Crown mare Rixt's filly foal who is due to come to australia later this year. Arjen is also on standby for the Friesian Train display at WEG.

    Incredible to start at Prix St George - one can only dream of having a horse with that much talend AND the looks to match.

    How exciting to be importing a foal by this legend!!

    KPF just out of curiosity...

    are you able to 'start' competing at higher levels in europe?!

    if so, i think it is a good idea!

    if you're refering to Arjen 417, he didn't 'start' his competition career at PSG, this is his first 'start' at PSG level.

    I believe you can start at a level higher than L1 in europe, but up to what I am not sure, I'd guess around M4 or Z. Spring will probably have more an idea.

    Nannygoat...don't you need points to start at a certain level?

    And the feathers. Don't see many feathers in the dressage ring :p
    So, just having a running plait, that's legal for Dressage then? I wish I could running plait as well as that -.-

    yes, I think he is a nice boy too. Great to see him out there competing and doing very well. There is a clip of him on youtube for the Pavo stallion comp held a while ago if you google his name.
