Bloodlines: Freestyle - Uniform - Pacific Sunset
Year of Birth: 2008
Dunavar is a carbon copy of his outstanding sire in both looks and temperament - he is sure to follow in
Freestyle’s footsteps as a competitive horse. A tall leggy gelding with a great trot and an athletic canter
His dam Kosette is a KWPN mare who has a history of producing outstanding offspring. Kosette is a daughter
of the great dressage producer ‘Keur, Preferent’ stallion Uniform. Kosette herself had a successful career in
the dressage ring competing all the way through 4th level and in her later years was campaigned by a
young rider until retiring sound in 2004. She was noted for her lovely movement, extension of stride and
freedom through her shoulder.
Dunavar’s sire, Freestyle, is a son of the famous Rhinelander stallion Florestan. Florestan I has produced
famous stallions as Fidermark, Florencio, Faveur, Fleurop, Furst Heinrich; Florestan I has taken the top
position in the FN breeding values for a number of years. Florestan I is famous for producing performance
horses with very high ridebility. In 2004 two Florestan I sons won both the 5 and 6-year-old World Young
Horse Dressage Championships in Verden.
Freestyle himself needs no introduction. Not only is Freestyle renowned for producing phenomenal athletes
but also for producing offspring that are highly trainable, kind and personable. He is a very modern type
stallion that really turns heads, and his successful dressage career has made him a sensation. In 1998 at the
Westfalenstallion Licensing, Freestyle was named a PREMIUM stallion. At the 100 day Performance test at
Prussendorf he was awarded a perfect 10 for character and a 9 for temperament. In dressage he proved to
rank amongst the best of his year and received a 9.33 for ridebility. His total score was 132.55 points. A
truly versatile stallion Freestyle obtained a 7th place finish in jumping with an 8 for jumping ability. Freestyle
was the overall winner of his performance test. Freestyle is a class 1 stallion based on his results in his
stallion performance test.
This cross has proven to be one with all the best of both sire and dam put into a handsome black package.
Dunavar was reserve champion at his KWPN-NA keuring in 2008. Since being started under saddle
Dunavar has proven to be everything the Freestyle babies are raved about for. His work ethic, kindness and
easy going temperament have made him a complete joy to have; there is no doubt that this sensible gelding
will easily make an amateur horse after more training. Despite his obvious dressage breeding, Dunavar has
the athleticism and movement to also excel as a hunter. Going very well w/t/c – does not require lunging
before riding, has no vices or silliness. Can leave him for a week and ride without fuss or worry that he’s
going to be a handful.

the purchase of Dunavar. We wish
them all the best in their competitive
