Pax Asgard af Pegasus (Pegasus Vom Niehaus-Hof - Ambrosius af Asgard) x Jakira (Johnson - Don Rosario)

Last year's colt, Juxtaposition MHF, by this pairing received praise from the judge for his long legs, neck, and quality foundation. Juxtaposition earned Silver in the 2021 Knabstrupper class at Dressage at Devon. The second colt of this pairing from 2021, Atonement MHF, placed 5th in the 2021 Knabstrupper class at Dressage at Devon and during his inspection, the judge noted his long legs, nice topline, and rhythmic walk and uphill trot.

Knabstrupper stallion, Pax Asgard af Pegasus, is quickly becoming one of the most prolific sires of high quality Knabstrupper offspring in North America. He is proving to be a versatile and powerful horse – Pax is ridden in dressage, driven in harness, and has recently started jumping and is showing serious natural jumping talent. In 2021, Pax competed in the Get of Sire class at the world-renowned Dressage at Devon earning a Bronze with a collective mark of 77.15 points to finish behind serial winner KWPN sire Sir Sinclair and the 7-year-old Oldenburg stallion Davos CF and beating out several traditional Warmblood stallions. Pax and his offspring are paving the way to a spotty and sporty showring.


Jakira, is an imported Brandenburg-Anhalt Premium mare who is actively in competition with Murder Hollow. Prior to our ownership, she showed in both dressage and eventing. At her eventing debut at Woodside International Horse Trials, she placed in the top 10. Jakira performed her riding horse test (Reitpferdeprüfung) in Germany under rider Christin Böhner placing 3rd. She has continued her dressage career and is also driven in our four-in-hand team. Jakira is incredibly forward and never goes against the leg. Jakira is uphill, powerful, and balanced with great freedom of movement in her shoulder.  She is a hard worker and we have already seen her produce similar qualities in her offspring. 


In 2021, Jakira competed in two classes at Dressage at Devon. She earned Silver in her Mare class – just .2 points away from Gold. She also earned Bronze in the Produce of Dam class where she was 1 point away from Gold. Jakira’s sire, Johnson, has risen to be one of the world’s best dressage stallions and holds 2nd place (as of 2022) on the FEI World Ranking. Her grandsire, Jazz, has led the top spot of WBFSH ranking and is now in 3rd place (as of 2022). Jazz was titled KWPN Horse of the Year 2006. Jakira’s paternal granddam has produced a plethora of incredibly talented and high-level horses including two Grand Prix offspring and two PSG/Inter I offspring. Jakira’s dam, Dorema, has produced multiple talented dressage offspring who are currently working their way up the levels. Jakira’s maternal granddam, Donnerfee, produced a licensed stallion, Sir Lausitz.
