During his sports career, Daniel Bluman’s Apardi was one of most impressive showjumpers on the international circuit. As a breeding stallion, Apardi now proves that he passes on his qualities; a perfect example is his son Napardi. The now 4-year-old stallion is approved by the KWPN and scored no less than 84.5 points in the KWPN Performance Test. With his showjumping talent, excellent conformation and incredible pedigree, Napardi follows in the footsteps of his father. 

9.0 for scope

Napardi has already made a name for himself after his excellent performances during the various KWPN selections. The KWPN-approved son of Apardi stood out in the first and second round viewing of the KWPN Stallion Show 2020/2021 and received an invite for the KWPN Performance Test. During the test, Napardi again impressed with his wonderful rideability and mindset, his excellent reflexes and jumping technique and especially with his enormous scope. Napardi passed the KWPN exam with 84.5 points, including a 9.0 for his scope and 8.5s for reflexes, technique, rideability, mentality and overall talent.

In addition to his rideability and jumping talent, Napardi has got an outstanding conformation. Standing at a height of 1.72m, Napardi has a good size and has the length in his body you look for in a modern sporthorse. Furthermore, Napardi has an athletic body with a correct foundation and strong feet – just like his father. 

“I have a few offspring from Apardi that we are very excited about and have gotten videos from breeders about others that look very promising!" Bluman says. "I'm looking forward to see Apardi’s progeny in the international ring as the years go by. You can see his athleticism and quality as main characteristics passed to his offspring."
