Pax Asgard af Pegasus x Dior CCF 2022
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.
