Dutch Gold is the only British stallion to WIN the British Novice Eventing Championships
as a 7 year old (Intermediate-level course), as well as represent the country in the
Olympics as a Grand Prix Dressage horse. His temperament was so extraordinary that
the day after he won the Novice Championships, he was put on a boat to Holland to
compete in one of his first International dressage competitions.
By the famous stallion Dutch Courage, Dutch Gold represented Great Britain on its
international dressage teams EVERY year from 1987 to 1992.
Being 3/4 Thoroughbred, he had all of the speed and stamina required for today’s
eventers, along with the temperament and movement for the dressage phase. He has
produced many exciting eventers, including successful CCI** and CCI*** horses. He is
proving to be an interesting broodmare sire, as the dam sire for fantastic mare

Championships every year since 1985. Although more famous for his dressage, Dutch
Gold has produced many very exciting eventers. Being ¾ Thoroughbred, he has all the
speed and stamina required of today's modern equine athlete.
