Breeding Profile
Stallion Characteristics
Goffert was an exceptional athlete and proved beyond a doubt that Friesians can compete and win at the highest levels of dressage. Elegant and flashy, he turned the heads of judges and spectators alike. His offspring are athletic, well developed and beautiful. They are not the classic Friesian type and build, but once you see their gaits, you can see why he has been such an enormously popular breeding stallion.

Goffert's offspring use their front legs well and have exceptional movement. They have lots of carrying power in their trot and canter, have good characters and are willing to work for you. His legacy will be his contribution to furthering the sport horse type in the Friesian breed.

Offspring Inspection notes
Goffert's descendants are nice horses with great willingness to work. They clearly improve during the evaluation. The use of the front leg is nice, but they could have more power in the hind legs. Goffert seems to produce mostly dressage horses.

Conclusion: Although the exterior of his descendants could be better, Goffert is passing on his movement more than sufficient. His offspring have the correct attitude to do well in the sport of dressage.
