Colorado Skrødstrup is a Knabstrupper stallion imported from Denmark in 2006. He is a bay leopard spotted stallion and stands 15.3 hh. Colorado was only the 2nd registered and approved stallion in this country, and one of the only approved and registered Knabstrupper stallions to actively compete at any discipline in the U.S. After coming to the United States, he began training for the jumpers, and placed consistently. At his first "A" rated jumper show (the "Oaks", San Juan Capistrano, California) against very qualified competition, he received a second and a third place in the 1.10m against 89 other horses! Colorado then switched careers and trained through 4th Level and competed successfully while with his new owner through 2nd at USDF recognized shows.
In 2010, Colorado made history by becoming the first Knabstrupper stallion in the history of the breed to have successfully completed a 70 Day or 100 Day Stallion Testing in North America. He attended the 70 Day Stallion Testing hosted in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and impressed both judges, riders and attendees with his athletic ability and finished 3rd in Dressage and 5th overall against a very impressive group of warmblood stallions.
