Impressive already lives up to his name as quite a formidable son of the foundation sire Douglas as he unites size, power and unlimited scope. Through his sire, the valuable genes of Darco and Capitol I are secured in his pedigree which furtherly strengthens Impressives’ best features. In breeding, Douglas has developed into one of the most successful sons of Darco over the past years. Offsprings such as Dougie Douglas, Guru, Suma’s Zorro, Dassler and Carneyhaugh Manx perform at international Grand Prix level. Impressive’s grand sire Contender needs no further introduction as one of Holstein’s most influential sires over the past decades. Both Corofino and Lord have been indispensable for the current breeding of show jumpers as well. Impressive’s dam line is also is filled with successful show jumpers and approved stallions.
Dam Atendri, provisionally ‘Keur’ and ‘Preferent’ by the KWPN, is also the mother of Easton VDL, who competes with success at 1.45m level in Australia. Atendri is the half-sister of Corrido – an approved stallion by the Holsteiner Verband and an international show jumper with Nisse Lueneburg, of Dirk Ahlmann’s international Grand Prix show jumper Prestigious and of Salina IV – the dam of Jos Lansink’s For Cento, Philipp Schober’s Quinta and the approved stallion Quidman Denfer of Thomas Velin. The KWPN approved Fernando, who was 4th in the Grand Prix La Baule with Johnny Pals, the powerful Grand Prix show jumper Cocodrillo and the AES Stallion Show Champion Goodluck VDL are all closely related to Impressive as well.
