He is now ready to start his Dressage career and take his next rider to the next level. Schooling 2nd level! Started on clean flying changes!

Vergano is by Versache who is by Olympic Ferro.

Versache is a great example of a modern sporthorse. Versache has the perfect balance of athleticism, pedigree, and temperament. He offers to his foals excellent overall movement resulting in even and balanced horses with three fantastic gaits. His offspring have terrific natural toplines and well placed necks and strong hind end movement.

Versache is a 17.2 hand, Dutch stallion, by the famous dressage stallion, Olympic Ferro and out of an Elite Dutch mare by Idocus Crown, another fantastic dressage producer. Versache has shown tremendous versatility, excelling in both the dressage and jumping arena. In 2013 Versache ranked in the top 20 for leading Dressage Breeding Sires with the USEF.

His career started in 2007 where at the ISR/ Oldenburg stallion test, he was Reserve Champion of the 30-day stallion test scoring a 123.23, with a dressage index of 127.73 and a jumping index of 127.53. Additionally, he went on to receive the US Reserve Champion in the jumping IBOP with a final score of 76. Versache has gained three stars (*/*/-/-/*) with Oldenburg NA, first for his conformation at inspection, second for his stallion testing and third for producing two approved stallions.

Vergano’s Grand Sire Ferro

Olympic Ferro, the Dutch sensation at Aachen, ┬ácompeted at the 2000 Olympics and assisted his team in achieving a team silver medal, with an individual score of 74.92%. As a three-year-old he was champion of his performance test at Ermelo, where he achieved the outstanding results of 6.5–step, 8.5–trot and 8.5 gallop. His sire Ulft, is a son of the great Le Mexico, who is listed 10th on the jumping index with 142 points. Le Mexico carries Furioso xx blood, which brings value to any pedigree. Ferro’s dam, Brenda, is a daughter of the Holsteiner, Farn, who is listed sixth on the jumping index with 146 points. Farn’s son Nimmerdor, is listed second on the jumping index with 155 points. Olympic Ferro sired the champion of the three-year-old stallions at s’Hertogenbosch in 2000, and has nine young stallions in the second round there in 2001. The champion three year old mare at Ermelo in 2000 was an Olympic Ferro daughter. Much is expected of this charming, talented black stallion who achieved the title of “Keur” in 2000. He can be relied upon to produce beautiful, typy, talented offspring of the highest quality. Fantastic toplines and an elegant look characterize his get. In addition to their dressage excellence, Olympic Ferro’s offspring also make good jumpers. Olympic Ferro is #1 on the BN World Stallion Rankings for dressage and is the top stallion and pride of the Netherlands, affectionately known as the “Black Pearl.” In 2002 Olympic Ferro once again had the highest scores on the Dutch Olympic team.
