Pavo Cup 2021
Las Vegas (by Ferdeaux) has won the Pavo Cup for five-year-old horses with a top score of 285.2. In the final Philipp Hess actually wanted to give the capital stallion an 11 for running over, but that was not allowed. Jury member Hess sr about our eye-catcher: “This is a fascinating horse, he is very good and demands all the attention. Las Vegas has a lot of natural aptitude for going uphill.” To his son: "I've never seen you ride such a horse, Philipp." There are compliments to Franka Loos for the training. Even before the results are announced, Hess Sr congratulates all of the Netherlands with this horse. Philipp dismounts and reports: “I got a great feeling on this horse. He can go forward and back well, is light on the aids and sits great.” So it's no surprise that there is a ten to complete the top score of this KWPN stallion.
Stallion Inspection 2021
Las Vegas was so impressive at the KWPN Stallion Inspection under Franka Loos. During the talent test for dressage stallions born in 2016 powered by Anemone Horse Trucks, one ultimate 10 was awarded. Ferdeaux's son Las Vegas convinced with a 10 for his trot. Due to the corona crisis, the Pavo Cup and the Anemone Horse Trucks Stallion Competition were canceled last year. Many stallions from the L-year therefore had not shown themselves to the public since the KWPN Stallion Show last year. That is why an ability test was organized at the KWPN Stallion Inspection. “It is a horse with a lot of ease, a lot of shoulder freedom and an uphill image”, judge Joyce van Rooijen - Heuitink is enthusiastic. “His walk is very easily and light-footed through the trot parts. He also has a good, clean and powerful walk. The canter has a lot of power and impulsion, while he continues to go uphill nicely and he shifts very easily.” Las Vegas came under Franka Loos on 89 points, for his canter and overall impression he received a score of 9.0.
