Ampère is a noble and elegant stallion with a beautiful head.
Exterior: handsome stallion with a great dressage type and a striking appearance. Ampère has a well formed neck, correctly placed shoulders, his withers are well developed and have good length, and his legs are strong and perfectly proportioned to his body.
Gaits (8; 9; 9,5): His walk is very clean and consistent and he covers ground easily. The trot is big, well balanced and powerful. The canter is dynamic, uphill, big and well balanced.
Test riders: (9; 8,5; 9; 9): Ampère moves with a lot of natural balance and suppleness, with very strong hindlegs. He also has a very good and natural self-carriage.
As a dressage horse, Ampère has a lot of talent and he gives the rider a very good feeling. He is an honest, reliable and sensible stallion, with a very good work ethic.
Ampère won the Dutch performance test – the 70 days performance test in Ermelo – in 2008, with very high scores (walk 8; trot 9; canter 9,5; ridability 9; talent as dressage horse 9).
At the test, riders praised him as the best horse they had ridden in years. He passes his exceptional gaits on to his offspring.
His sire, Rousseau, was vice world champion of the young dressage horses in Verden in 2003.
Rosseau brought with Wamberto, Blue Hors Zack and Ampère three times in a row (!) the Dutch licensing winner.
Ampère’s dam sire, Flemmingh, counts as a supplier of international top horses like Krack C (Anky van Grunsven) or Lingh (Edward Gal). Flemmingh produced the young stallion champion of the Oldenburg licensing in Vechta in 2009.
Ampère’s dam line has produced both breeding stallions and a great number of competition horses for both jumping and dressage, like the licensed stallions Mythos (Mytens xx - Farn) and Gringo (Ramiro - Amor).
