At his stallion performance test in Neustadt/Dosse in 2012, Velvet Touch was awarded a final score of 8.34 with emphasis on dressage and the highest scores of all for his gaits (walk 9.0, canter 8.0), excellent rideability (8.38) and good interior values (8.13). He has meanwhile sovereignly won medium (M) level tests for young dressage horses under his rider Therese Nilshagen/SWE who trained him until advanced (S) levels. He will now be developed and competed in dressage tests by our rider Marion Oesch/SUI. His sire Broere Valdez, the winner in dressage at his stallion performance test in 2005 in the Netherlands, won advanced (S) level dressage classes. With the "Keur" stallion Houston and the "Preferent" stallion Jazz Broere Valdez' pedigree is composed of the very finest Dutch bloodlines. The dam's sire Haarlem is one of the most successful sons of the great Voltaire. Voltaire was highly successful in show jumping and has earned a reputation as a sire who passes on double talents. The granddam, the "Keur" and "Preferent" mare Camenta, produced four permium mares, including the "Keur" mare Imenta (by Concorde), who is successful in advanced level show jumping as well as two other successful sport horses. Ubis and the "Preferent" stallion Epigoon found in the third and fourth generations are further performance-makers.
