Pyxis av Drommarna 

KNN registered, and lifetime approved stallion. 

One of only 2 KNN approved Knabstrupper stallions by Pegasus vom Niehous-Hof (2nd is Talent av Drommarna) available in North America!

 

1st Premium main-book Knabstrupper stallion with “Knabstrupperforeningen for Danmark", the foundation and parent registry which governs over the adjacent studbooks through Denmark. This status is a combined result of performance testing, temperament, conformation, vetting, and endurance.  He scored a very respectable 846.07 for his ridden test. Full results posted on this page.

Pyxis is a royally bred Knabstrupper that is one of the very few KNN approved stallions in North America. He has unbelievable jumping bloodlines, kind temperament, supreme rideability and outstanding movement!

 

Pyx is a powerful stallion wrapped up in a big, sweet, spotted candy wrapper. He truly doesn't want to put a hoof wrong and aims to please.  Pyx won the 2022 year-end championships at 1st level dressage and has been winning his 2nd level classes. Currently his trainer has decided to have her adult amateur manager ride Pyxis and he is proving to be a great partner for her. So, stay tuned ... he is already schooling more advanced movements (half-pass, passage, shoulder-in, piaffe…etc.) so keep checking for updates. ❤

 

At this time, all of his foals are given his easy-going temperament, height, bone and great hindend consistently. He now has 3 of his kids undersaddle and they have been very easy to start almost born broke. Two of the 3 have jumped and show his great technique. As they get older, I will update.

Knabstrupper

Pyx's sire, Pegasus Vom Niehaus-Hof (Peg), is a Verbandspremium stallion that was also awarded best ZfDP (German Warmblood) stallion. Peg has competed in and won Para-Equestrian FEI Dressage which is a testament to his temperament and superb movement.

 

In 2011, Peg was the last-minute mount for Para equestrian Laurietta Oakleaf. Tornados in the central states prevented her from taking her mounts to Del Mar. After successfully showing with her, Peg's owners were approached by the president of USPEA, Hope Hand, who asked if they would allow a young para rider to use Bubba for the clinic with Olympic rider, Debbie McDonald. The rider was only 13 and was paralyzed on one side due to a brain injury. No one was willing to take on the liability and risk, but they knew Peg would be a solid mount and the parties agreed to use him.

 

During the clinic ride Debbie commented, “what an amazing gelding” because of how patient and gentle he was. Even with this unknown rider, he worked through the ride understanding everything that was being asked of him. Eventually it was pointed out to Debbie that he was a stallion, and she was even more impressed with his temperament and intelligence. The following year, that rider (Sydney Collier) returned to California to compete and use him as her preferred mount.

 

Peg was also used as the mount for Laura Goldman, who was partially paralyzed on the opposite side as Sydney. He also worked as the mount for the clinic given by Mette Rosencrantz after the competition for not only Syd and Laura, but for 5 additional para riders. As you can see, the Knabstupper brain is amazing!

Pyx's dam, Colibria Z (Bria), is a 16.3 h Zangershiede mare bred by the Olympic sporthorse breeder Koos Derks in the Netherlands. As a young horse, Koos Derks jumped her before she was purchased and imported to the USA for a young rider (1.0m). Bria has a great jump, kind temperament and is still sound at 26!

 

She is by the Grand Prix jumper (1.5m) Holsteiner stallion Cevin. His Holsteiner dam, U-Capitola (stamm 173), is the full sibling to the famous Capitol I and she has made her mark as an exceptional broodmare producing, well known approved stallions Quite Capitol, Lord Capitol and Cevin just to name a few. The quality shows in her bloodlines, even her grand-get are GP show jumping (1.6m) champions (Quite Easy I and II). Cevin's Holsteiner sire, Calando I (stamm 7673), was an international winning show jumper (1.7m). He has many offspring that have excelled in eventing, dressage and international show jumping (1.7m) but his his best-known offspring are: Canaris, Castor, Careful, who took part in the Barcelona Olympics.

Bria is out of a fantastic damline that both competes and produces.  International CCI5 eventer, 2023 Pan American Games and Canadian Olympic hopeful, El Mundo (Video) and the late FEI Dressage/GP Jumper stallion, Tempranillo were produced through Bria's dam!

 

Bria's dam is by the KWPN jumper producing stallion, Transvaal. This influential showjumping sire for the KWPN sired many offspring that competed in the upper levels of jumping and the Olympics.

 

You don't have to look generations back for genetic gold. It is up front and center!

The next few pictures are of him through the years of growing up. He has trained my daughter well when it comes to proper scratching techniques!

Pyxis really has a beautiful soul and aims to please.  His athleticism, brains and best personality make him a joy to own and for his trainer to compete!
