Five Star is born in Erp, The Netherlands, in the stables of the Bijveld’s family, Five Star’s breeder. The small village of Erp must be an area for potential success because that’s also the place where multiple Olympic gold medal winner, dressage rider Anky van Grunsven, has her operation.
“A lot of talent”
As a 3-year-old, Five Star was approved by the KWPN Stallion selection committee. The report was extremely positive about Five Star’s performance, his natural talent for the dressage sport, his temperament, and character, and his genetic profile.
The committee stated that Five Star is an honest reliable stallion with a very good attitude, that he has a large ability and a great character, and that he is very easy and willing to work with. His walk was described as pure, active, and with a lot of scope. “The trot is light-footed, carries more than sufficiently, and has good extension with an appealing foreleg technique. The canter has a lot of carriage,
support and space,” the report said.
In general, they stated that Five Star moves with great flexibility and balance and that he shows a lot of self-carriage. They concluded the report by saying that Five Star has a lot of talent for dressage and gives his rider a good feeling.
For a few years, Five Star was trained by Dutch rider Kirsten Brouwer. She qualified for the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses two years in a row. The combination finished fifth in the year that Five Star was 5 years old. A year later, when Five Star was 6 years old, they won the silver medal!
In the U.S.
Since he was imported to the U.S., in the fall of 2019, Five Star has competed at a few dressage competitions. He has received high scores in Prix St.Georges and Intermediate tests. Several judges have
rewarded him with 9s and 10s!
In October 2020 he won two championship titles at the Great American/USDF Region 3 Dressage Championships in Ocala, FL!
Five Star is currently being prepared for his Grand Prix debut.
Five Star has two AES-approved sons in King Star Fôret (2014, Five Star x Jet Set D) and Jakarta (2015, Five Star x San Remo).
