Dark Rousseau

Dark Rousseau is from the first crop of the Grand Prix stallion Dettori, who was paired with the PROK provisional keur mare Westside by Rousseau. Out of this dam line come the Grand Prix horses Vitana V and Cennin and the KWPN stallion Lantanas.

This elegant and well-moving stallion is registered with the KWPN with a nice total of 84.5 point.

Dark Rousseau's performance report was full of praise. Bert Rutten: “He is an appealing stallion with a very beautiful front. The trot is light-footed with a nice moment of suspension. He is always forward thinking. He has a well-carried hind leg and a nice use of the front legs. He always maintains his balance and rhythm throughout the turns. The canter has a lot of expression, always uphill with a very nice front leg and a very active hindleg. He has a good extended canter with a lot of power, combined with a very nice posture. Transitions are easily done by Dark Rousseau. His walk is very correct, with beautiful strides and with the right amount of space.” Dark Rousseau received an 8.5 for his walk, trot, canter and aptitude as a dressage horse. He also received this grade for his posture and balance and rideability and attitude.

Dark Rousseau won the KWPN Stallion Competition in 2023, with many nines on his protocol. He also managed to qualify for the final of the Pavo Cup that year. His rider Kim Alting is very enthusiastic about this reliable stallion. Dark Rousseau is a very honest stallion with a great rideability.

Dark Rousseau comes from the provisional keur mare Westside (Rousseau x Flemmingh x Hemmingway). Dark Rousseau is a half-brother of the Grand Prix horse Hyatt. Third mother lantana (s. Hemmingway) produced the Grand Prix horse Vitana V (s. Donnerhall). Vitana V was successful under Stephanie Peters, Madeleine Witte-Vrees and Morgan Barbançon. Out of Vitana V comes the Grand Prix horse and KWPN stallion Cennin (s. Vivaldi), who was successful under Madeleine Witte-Vrees and is now active in Australia.

The first offspring of Dark Rousseau stand out because of their beautiful appearance. They have a very nice front and are all moving uphill. Where necessary, Dark Rousseau improves the use of the hind leg. His offspring often have an active and strong hind leg. The influence of Rousseau-Ferro is clearly visible.
