Darwin, the sire of Inspekteur, was described as a straightforward, friendly and obedient stallion and a particularly eager worker, finishing 3rd in his performance test in 1988, scoring 9’s for training, temperament, rideability and trot. He became Champion of 1989/1990 National Stallion Dressage Competition category A under Leida Strijk to claim the same Championship again the following year in the heaviest category. No less than three of his sons were sent to Ermelo in 1993. His son Inspekteur received approval.
This stallion is a riding type which means that the wither is higher than the highest point at the back. Inspekteur is an honest, trustworthy and happy stallion. He loves to work and is trying to learn all the time. His trot is active. In the trot there is very good movement of the hindquarters. In the canter he is very balanced. This stallion has an inclination towards dressage and makes the rider feel very good. Inspekteur is not so much a natural jumping stallion as a dressage stallion. His behaviour in the saddle is very good.
Performance scores: 8.5 walk, 9 trot, 8 canter, 8.5 rideability, 5 jumping, 4.5 free jumping, 9 handling, 8 trainability.
The 1994 foals were more than satisfactory with a good trot and an even use of front and hind quarters. He produces horses with strong hind legs and they are all very nice types. They have great walks and a very good character. If you want to breed power and front or if you have a mare that is a bit long in the back it would be good to use this stallion.
