Houdini at Little Uncle KNN 247

Purebred (7/8)

White born Few Spot


Foaled 2004

Height: 167cm


Houdini is by the German Knabstrupper Little Holiday whose sire was the advanced dressage stallion Hamlet Frydenlund.  His damsire is Baron aus der schutzenten Hand, the reknowned classic Knabstrupper sire.


Houdini has been presented in front of three grading societies by JJays and received a premium from them all, two being the highest scoring stallion on the day.


In 2009 he was presented in front of the ZfdP where he was one of only three stallions entered into ZfdP German Riding Horse stud book one. The three German judges complimented his type, muscle & canter.


He was champion stallion with the KNN at the 2008 Devon grading, and again at the 2014 Leamside grading where he passed his performance test to obtain Lifetime approval with the KNN. The Danish judges deemed him an attractive pure bred stallion (7/8) of good type, with a good walk and trot, and a very good canter.


These results are reflected in this stallions ability to sire true-to-type quality foals with good conformation and movement, who have been highly trainable and gone on to perform in a variety of disciplines, both at Riding Club and Affiliated levels.


Being a few spot stallion, homozygous for PATN1 he guarantees to throw foals with some form of spotted coat pattern.

Blacklaw Xcalibur Knabstrupper Stallion UK

Blacklaw Xcalibur KNN 192

Purebred (6/8) Bay Leopard spotted 

Foaled  2005  166cm

KNN Graded 

Xcalibur is a young purebred stallion.  Xcalibur is an impressive horse with light paces and an excellent scopey jump. He is a horse full of enthusiasm and energy combined with a lovely friendly temperament.  Xcalibur is a lighter boned Knabstrupper stallion with Arab & TB in his pedigree. It is hoped that he will follow an eventing career although at this early stage he is showing the paces and jump to be successful in any discipline.

He is by Xantast Middelsom a Premium graded leopard Knabstrupper stallion. Xantast sired the best foal at the KNN grading in 2004, has had several daughters graded, one with an outstanding 9 and also has a fully graded stallion son.  Xantast is by Xanthos, a superb stallion, who has produced international dressage horses and several graded stallion sons.

Xcalibur’s dam is the prolific graded Knabstrupper mare Vixen.   Vixen has bred a dynasty of successful Knabstruppers and has been awarded two silver medals for her offspring.  In 2007 alone her offspring’s success has been phenomenal. Vixen’s foal was Best in Show at the Scottish KNN Knabstrupper grading achieving a nine overall and she was the only Knabstrupper in the UK to gain such a high mark. Her grandson at the KNN Birmingham grading was awarded a premium 8.  Her granddaughter at the UK ZFDP grading was also awarded a foal Premium. In Denmark at the KNN grading in Zealand her gelding son, Saxer Aested, was Best in Show whilst her granddaughters were Best Foal and Best Youngstock.
Vixen has several Premium graded daughters one of whom received a nine overall in 2005 at the KNN grading in the UK. Xcalibur is her only son to have been put forward for stallion grading and we are delighted that he was licensed successfully.

Mares who qualify under the Knabstrupper outcross list (e.g. Graded Trakehner, Warmblood or Tbs) when bred to Xcalibur maybe eligible to receive full mainbook Knabstrupper papers for their offspring.

Holmegards Bastian Knabstrupper Stallion UK

Holmegards Bastian KNN 183

Purebred (6/8)  Chestnut leopard spotted

2003   159cm 

KNN Graded

Holmegards Bastian, or 'Asti' as he affectionately known at home, has the most amazing temperament. This kind mannerly horse is talented, trainable and strikingly beautiful. He always gives his best and never fails to capture the attention of spectators and judges alike.


Asti completed his performance life grading with the KNN in Oct 08. His elevated paces and natural athleticism, along with his fantastic off the floor jump, gained him the highest performance marks of any Knabstrupper stallion in 2008.


As you can see, Asti would be equally suitable for both dressage and showjumping breeders alike. He really is Mr versatile. A harmonious, balanced horse with athletic, off the floor paces, a huge jump and trainable temperament. All this with the added bonus of colour.....

Norgaards Jason Knabstrupper stallion UK

Norgaards Jason KNN 307

 (4/8)  Homozygous (EEAA)Bay LpLp Fewspot PATN1/patn1

Tested negative n/n for WFFS and PSSM1

2014  147cm 

KNN Graded 

Superb young stallion with excellent scope over a fence, with loose jumping marks of 8.5 for technique and 9 for capacity at his grading.  Superb paces and temperament (10s at his grading).  At home he lives here on a mixed yard and is always well behaved. 


Homozygous for Lp will always give some form of patterning, and his first two foal crops have given us a wide range from minimally patterned right up to full leopard foals.  Homozygous for Bay, he will never throw a chestnut based foal.

All his foals have inherited his superb movement, with excellent conformation and are quick to learn.  Three of his 2019 foals were presented at the 2019 UK KNN Knabstrupper gradings - two gained an overall mark of 9, and one an 8, testament to the quality he throws.

Jason will be available at Public Stud to Limited mares in 2020, in line with his training/competition schedule.

All mares must have clean swab certificates for the current season.
