Each single one of these stallions belong to the greatest around and still play a huge influence on today’s showjumping breeding industry.
The KWPN performance test report states the following: “Kensington is an honest and reliable stallion with an excellent character and a great willingness to work. His canter is light-footed, has a good space and is very well balanced. Kensington jumps with very good reflexes, good technique and uses his body in the best possible way a showjumper could do. Kensington looks to be very careful and shows a tremendous amount of scope. As a jumper Kensington has lots of ability and possibilities and gives his rider a very good feeling.”
