Christopher Hector, of The Horse Magazine, Australia, devotes a new article to the breeding of Glamourdale, who won the recent FEI Dressage World Championship under Charlotte Fry. Their Individual Grand Prix Freestyle scored an incredible 90.654%.

“Glamourdale is very much the product of the stud run by Gert Jan and Anne Van Olst, the ‘power couple’ of Dutch dressage. Glamourdale combines the blood of their two top stallions.”

—Christopher Hector,

Glamourdale is by Lord Leatherdale, who is named after Doug Leatherdale of Leatherdale Farms, Minnesota; and out of a mare by Negro.
