His progeny are known for high rideability.
Ex Libris has an impressive international pedigree. His sire Elan xx, who is
placed in advanced dressage competitions, is a son of the German TB Wiesenklee
xx, who finished third in the German Derby . Wiesenklee xx is also the sire of
approved stallion Troublemaker xx, who stood in the Netherlands and in Oldenburg
. Ex Libris's dam Aphrodite is one of the best Dutch mares and a multiple
champion mare. In 1994 Aphrodite presented a further approved and
performance-tested son in the Netherlands . She is by Principaal, who presented
good dressage horses in the Netherlands . He is a son of the successful sporting
horse Formatuer (by the Holstein Polaris and out of an Oldenburg bred dam) who
is standing at stud in England today.
Extremely valuable to the Dutch breeding of dressage horses is the Trakehner
stallion Doruto (sire of the great-grandam of Karolien), who became famous
thanks to several Olympic horses e.g. Banjo (Jo Rutten), Robby (Bert Rutten) and
above all Ideaal (Jo Hinnemann). Today he is found in the maternal line of many
good sporting horses and stallions.
In 1991 Ex Libris convincingly won the stallion performance test in Medingen,
scoring 9.0 twice for rideability and for basic paces (his very good walk and
outstanding trot have to be mentioned). He also achieved the highest index for
rideability at the test however his jumping was also above average (8.33 for
course jumping). Ex Libris successfully competed in the dressage arena up to
advanced level (Klasse S).
The approved son Exxon was Reserve Champion at his 100 day testing in Marback
and also in 1997 approved son Exupery won the 4yr old Bundeschampionate. In
1996, one of his daughters was named Reserve Champion Mare at Rastede. In
addition, many auction horses candidates where sold (270,000DM at the PSI
auction, and 170,000 at Vechta). In 1994 a 4 year old Ex Libris daughter
competed in the Federal Championships of the German Riding Horse in Warendorf.
