Owned by Brenda Thompson, and ridden to Regional-level wins by Brenda and daughter Rebecca, Kruise+// (Desperado V x Kherida by Khemosabi++++//) is one special horse. Stallion manager, trainer and owner of several Kruise foals, Robin Ginn was able to share Kruise's story with us.

Paired with his trusted trainer Monti Hight (also the person who trained all of his amateur riders), Kruise and Monti sailed past 71 other horses to take the title of 2009 Sport Horse Under Saddle Open National Champion. The pair also went Top Ten Sport Horse in-Hand Stallions the same year. This is in addition to his National Top Sport Horse Under Saddle, ATR in 2005.

With a staggering 26 Regional titles, Kruise exemplifies multi-talented by taking titles in Halter, Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Sidesaddle, Sport Horse In-Hand, and Sport Horse Under Saddle. Robin explains further, "These titles have been won in Open, ATR, and JTR classes proving that Kruise+// is not only extremely versatile but also has a wonderful temperament, making him brilliant enough to win in Open classes but also even tempered enough to deal with issues that sometimes accompany amateur and junior riders.   These qualities of versatility, beauty, and wonderful temperament are qualities that we have seen in Khemosabi++++// offspring over and over again."

You might think Kruise has been too busy winning to be siring winners, but that couldn't be further from the truth. His get have found success in Hunter Pleasure, Sport Horse, and Dressage. Half-Arabian Carribean Kruise+ has racked up six Regional titles already in SHUS, Dressage, and was Top Five Supreme Sport Horse at the Region 15 Championships in 2009.

Robin continues, "Aladda Kruise, was 3rd on the judges' cards at the 2005 Sport Horse Nationals in the Arabian 2 year old Sport Horse In-Hand, Geldings Jackpot Class.  New to the show ring in 2011 is Royal Kruise GF, another purebred gelding, who scored in the mid-60s at Training Level at his first show.  Kruise+// marks his babies with his beauty and excellent mind as well as his athleticism… We feel like Kruise+// is a very special horse and attribute much of his success, both as a competitor and as a sire, to his Khemosabi++++// connection."

Kruise's owner, Brenda Thompson agrees. "A horse cannot compete in as many different disciplines with as much success as Kruise+// has had without having an excellent mind and athletic ability.  We believe those qualities are seen with regularity in Khemosabi++++//'s offspring and are proud to offer a stallion with very similar attributes."
