Newark, 2011 SWB Gelding 17.1H 

Newark is by Nekton, out of Hargita/Heartbeat. Price Range C

Newark, 8yr old SWB gelding. A beautiful, multi talented and athletic horse that is as good of a dressage prospect as a top jumper. Beautiful canter and changes, showed 3rd level dressage 2018, schooling PSG movements. Jumped and showed up to 1.30m. Easy to train and a sweetheart on the ground. Makes great impressions on everybody that has met him and leaves smiles on people's faces after every ride, a true gem! 

With a jumping index at 143 points, Nekton topped the ranking at the Adelheidsdorf stallion performance testing. He took 4th place at the Elmshorn 5-year-old Jumping State Championship and qualified for the Warendorf National Championships. In 2006, Nekton qualified for the Bundeschapionat again under Lars Bak Andersen who had gotten the ride on him by then. At 7- and 8-year-old, he won jumper classes at S* level, in 2009 he won at S** and was highly placed at S*** level. When Nekton was retired from competition in 2012, he looked back on a highly successful competition career at national and international level under Lars Bak Andersen. Nekton’s sire Nimmerdor is rated one of the best European warmblood sires.

In 2018, Heartbeat was awarded Elite status by the SWB associations, and will be standing the 2018 season at Zangersheide in Belgium. Heartbeat was named Breeder's Trophy Colt in Denmark in 2013 and 2014.  The Elite in Denmark awarded him well as he is known internationally as a high-quality performance sire for modern breeders. Heartbeat has been shown to produce well with Swedish mares.  He is now in his fifth year, has exceptional rideability, and continues to impress and produce strong offspring with Swedish mothers.
