|Dawn Til Dusk||Demonstrator||Dynamp|
Metall is an impressively built stallion who competed successfully up to Prix St. Georges himself but is perhaps better known for his remarkable progeny as he produced several Grand Prix horses and licensed sons. His son Uthopia ridden by Carl Hester won team gold at the European Championships in Rotterdam and team gold as well as silver in both the Grand Prix Freestyle and the Special at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Metall also produced the licensed stallions Special D, Maserati, Memphis, Modjo and Ufo.
Metalls sire Ferro achieved the team silver medal as member of the Dutch team at the Olympic Games in 2000, placed sixth at the World Championships in Rome and second in the World Cup final in 1999. Ferro is 4th in the dressage world ranking of the WBFSH. His licensed son Rousseau (sire of Faside Rousseaus Magic Trick) was himself Vice World Champion for young dressage horses and managed to sire the KWPN Champion Stallion 3 times in a row. Metall's dam's sire Ramiro belongs to the most famous sires in the world and produced numerous international championship horses like Olympic gold medalist Ratina Z.
Dawn Til Dusk is by the International Grand Prix Dressage Stallion, Demonstrator, out of our KWPN graded main studbook PROK mare, Reggae. These are superb dressage bloodlines. Demonstrator was short listed for the Olympic Dressage Team. Reggae was imported from Holland and is by the Dutch stallion Olympic Vincent, who is one of the top dressage sires on the KWPN Stallion Index. Vincent was named Dutch Champion at the 1989 Grand Prix at Haaksberg.
