Already during the summer of 2020, the Chaman son performed impressively in young horse classes with various riders of the Luther family’s team.
Licensed for breeding on a stud trial basis in January 2020, he has been approved by the Holsteiner stallion grading comwithtee on 6 January.
Despite standing 1.76cm tall, the big-framed stallion proves to be tremendously rideable. The canter is impressively ground-covering, elastic, and balanced. His jumping shows exceptional quality, carefulness, and technique. Especially noticeable, however, are his strength and scope, raising expectations to see Khatou-S perform at major venues, jumping particularly challenging courses in the future.
As Jesse Luther will continue to show the stallion owned by the Helasuo stallion stud in Finland in competition, his availability at stud will be restricted to the period from 15 April to 30 June 2020.
Khatou is currently among the tallest stallions stood by the Holsteiner Verband stallion keeping GmbH and he also takes a seat in the front row as to strength and scope. These are cornerstones for selecting a mate. Smaller mares and those in need of improvement in terms of canter and scope should be well-suited for breeding to Khatou. The head lies within the breeders’ judgement.
