Cum Laude

CDI-winning PSG KWPN stallion, sire of exceptional offspring
Cum Laude is everything you could want in a stallion: exceptional movement, great character and striking beauty. He was successful in the show ring as a young horse, up through the levels to CDI Prix St. Georges and Intermediate I. He’s also a popular sire.

“Cum Laude came in training with us when he was five years old,” recalls his former rider and owner Vai Bruntink. “I immediately fell in love with him. He was so pretty and sweet.” Bruntink continued to develop the stallion and took him to the young horse classes as a six-year-old. He scored an 82 in the first round of the Pavo Cup and finished in 5th place. He was also a high scoring crowd favorite at national shows during this time.

Cum Laude continued up the levels, winning several national competitions at the ZZ-Zwaar and PSG levels, including freestyles with scores to 78%. He made his CDI small tour debut in 2018 at the World Championships for Young Horses, where he won the CDI1* Prix St. Georges class with a 71.618%. In 2019, Cum Laude advanced to the CDI3* level. Bruntink said, “He loved to do prize givings. I never had to worry if the arena or loud music would distract him because he just felt so confident everywhere.”

Due to his show career, Cum Laude was bred on a limited basis, but his first offspring were so outstanding he quickly became a popular choice:

Cum Laude is by the Grand Prix sensation Apache, Preferent, who competed at Aachen, Rotterdam and the World Equestrian Games with Emmelie Scholtens. The pair was 8th at the World Cup Finals with an 80.782% in the Freestyle. Apache is the sire of six Approved stallions. His daughters are equally spectacular, with 71% receiving a Star predicate or higher. Apache has numerous Grand Prix offspring, including Gio ridden by Charlotte Dujardin.

Cum Laude’s dam is the Preferent/Prestatie mare Pacharel T. She’s by legendary Weltmeyer out of the Rubinstein I Keur/Prestatie mare Kacharel T.

In 2019, Cum Laude was Approved by the KWPN based on his record in sport, offspring inspection and a five-day character test at Ermelo. In 2021, he was approved by the GOV, AHS and the Hanoverian Verband.
