Lexington is a beautiful and well-bred Elite Book Friesian Sporthorse stallion, with a pedigree full of
proven sport bloodlines on both sides. He is an expressive mover, with three good gaits, a
wonderful friendly personality, and unbeatable trainability. He blends the beauty and temperament of the Friesian with the stamina and athleticism of the Thoroughbred.
Lexington has been DNA tested as a true black (E/E, a/a), meaning his foals will be black or bay (or possibly grey, only if bred to a grey mare), but he will not have chestnut foals.
Lexington has been very successful on the highly competitive Florida dressage circuit. He is currently competing and winning at FEI Prix St Georges, with scores in the 70's, and always in the ribbons.
UPDATE: Lexington is the 2011 FSA High Performance National Champion!
Lexington has had a very successful dressage career, quickly and successfully moving up the levels.
As a 4 year-old he scored consistently in the 70's at Training Level, finishing the year ranked 19th in the country for USDF Dressage Horse of the Year at Training Level (2008), and also being named the USDF All-Breeds Champion at Training Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association. As a 5-year-old Lexington competed successfully at First Level, still scoring in the 70's, and still winning. He finished 2009 ranked 35th for USDF Dressage Horse of the Year 2009 at First Level, and also being named the USDF All-Breeds Champion for First Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association. Lexington was virtually undefeated at Training and First Level, winning nearly every class he was in. He was also the IFSHA 2008 Horse of the Year for Training Level
(74.6% year-end average) and the IFSHA 2009 Horse of the Year for First Level (72.2% year-end average.)
In 2010 Lexington moved up to Third Level, with scores to 70+%, and still consistently in the ribbons.
Lexington wrapped up 2010 being named USDF All-Breeds Champion at Third Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association, the 2010 USEF/PHR Third Level Region 3 Reserve Champion, and the FSA High Performance Reserve Champion (with a Third Level average of 69.52%)
Lexington is also already proving himself as a sire, siring two consecutive National Champion foals, a USDF/DSHB Regional Champion, Inspection High Score Champions, and foals which are consistently earning Bronze Elite status when presented at inspection. Two of Lexington's offspring were 2010 FSA National Inspection & In-hand Award winners -- Lancaster ROF was the 2010 National Champion with an awesome inspection score of 80.4%, and Paducha Dancer was the 3rd place finisher for 2010. Lily ROF, by Lexington, was the 2011 FSA Inspection & In-hand National Champion with scores in the 80's, and is
undefeated in USDF/DSHB in-hand competition and was the winner of the 2011 USDF/DSHB Southeast Regional Championships "Foals of Current Year" with a very impressive score of 81.7%.

Lexington is a very well-bred Friesian Sporthorse. His sire is the imported Friesian stallion Baron von Kolderveen, who was the highest ranked Friesian stallion on the USEF's list of Leading Dressage Sires for 2008. Baron's sire Reyert is the sire of Tietse, a Friesian stallion competing at the FEI level, and the first Friesian stallion to be approved based on performance. His grandsire Reitse has sired numerous successful dressage Friesians, including Iron Spring Farm's Goffert, who competed at Grand Prix level dressage, and has a Breyer model made for him. His grandsire on his dam's side is Peke, another successful sport Friesian sire, and the sire of the Grand Prix dressage Friesian Fire Magic (who is also famous as "the red Friesian".) Also noteable is his great-grandsire Tamme, who is the sire of 5 approved Friesian stallions. Tamme is also the sire of the Approved Friesian Sporthorse stallion Nico, and is the damsire of Iron Spring Farm's FEI level Friesian stallion Ulbert. There are too many successful sport Friesians in Lexington's pedigree to list them all, but
his pedigree is available below.
Lexington is out of a Thoroughbred mare by Denver Kid, and the Thoroughbred side of his pedigree is full of famous Thoroughbreds and some of the most popular names in Thoroughbred sporthorse breeding: Turn-To, Hail to Reason, Northern Dancer, Native Dancer, My Babu, Sea-Bird, Buckpasser, Nasrullah,
Nearco, and Ribot, to name a few. These names show up in pedigrees from Theodore O'Connor (Pan Am Games event horse) to Olympic Bonfire (Anky van Grunsven's Olympic dressage horse) to Sea Accounts (one of the only Thoroughbred stallions to complete the 100 day test and earn his lifetime breeding license
from the RPSI) and Fappiano (USEF leading sire of event horses 2002-2006.)
All foals are eligible for registration with the FSA (Friesian Sporthorse Association), the AWS (American Warmblood Society), and the PHR (Performance Horse Registry), as well as a myriad of Friesian
