Stallion Breeding and Bloodlines

Sire: Olympic Ferro (Frozen Semen)
Dam: Argentille Ivanka (Ilkay imp/Valuta imp)
Height: 16.1hh

Bellingara Ferrero - Warmblood Stallion at Stud"Bellingara Ferrero" is a beautiful son of Dutch Grand Prix dressage sire Olympic Ferro (deceased). Ferrero is the only son of Ferro standing at stud in Australia and presents a unique opportunity for Australians to utilise this valuable bloodline.

Ferro was a highly successful Grand Prix horse in his own right, winning at top level competitions, including silver at the Sydney Olympics. Ferro is also a proven sire which was very evident at the London Olympics, where he was the sire/grandsire of four outstanding London Olympic Grand Prix horses - Valegro (Charlotte Dujardin), Uthopia (Carl Hester), Undercover (Edward Gal) and Painted Black (Anky Van Grunsven).

Ferrero's dam Argentille Ivanka is a three time Sydney Royal winner, AWHA* National Mare Competition winner and also a successful dressage competitor. She was awarded top marks at her mare classification, and given Head Stud Book status by the AWHA.

Dressage Horse Breeders Take Note

Interestingly, Ferrero's pedigree is closely related to the sires of British dressage superstars Uthopia and Valegro. Uthopia is sired by the Ferro son Metall who carries Ramiro on the damline. Valegro is also sired by a Ferro son, Negro with a damline by Variant. Bellingara Ferrero carries both Variant and Ramiro on his damline.

Stallion Conformation, Temperament and Movement

Ferrero has stunning looks and conformation, together with a quiet, trainable temperament. He also has very good movement, demonstrating cadence and balance at all paces with a very active hind leg.

Reference Stallions

We have progeny by the following stallions at our stud. We do not stand these stallions at our stud.

Olympic Ferro

At the national stallion inspection in 1990, Ferro scored a brilliant set of marks for his performance test; three 9s and five times 8.5, he was Champion of his year. At four years of age he was Reserve Champion of his first National Stallion Jumping Competition.Ferro

Ferro has had a very impressive career in dressage. In 2000 Ferro gained 80% in Zwolle giving him first place. In Neummunster (Germany) he was winner of the World Cup Championships. At Den Bosch he placed 2nd in the World Cup finals with 80%, and first in the pre-rounds of the World Cup games. Ferro won the Grand Prix of Iserlohn (Germany) with the top score of 75.36%.

At the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 Ferro gained an individual score of 74.92%. His dressage performance was without fault. He won a third place and that was enough for the Dutch team to get the silver medal.


Olympic Ferro has also proven himself as a pre-potent sire of outstanding progeny. Out of 6 stallions that were approved in the stallion selection in Ermelo in 2000, two were sons of Ferro. In addition the KWPN previously approved 6 sons, Kennedy, Metall, Negro, Paddox, Pyriet and Osmium. One son was approved by the NRPS, Ferrolan. The British AES approved 2 sons, Jazz Dancer and Lorenzo. In the year 2001 two stallions from Ferro were approved by the KWPN, Rousseau and Rhodium.

At Den Bosch in 2002 he had 9 sons competing for approval. He also had an American bred son gaining Oldenberg approval in Germany. At Ermelo at the Dutch Championship of selection of 3 yr old mares, three daughters of Ferro, two mares from a daughter and a son all ended in the top 10. At the new stallion examination in Ermelo, 11 sons were allowed to the second inspection in s'Hertogenbosch in 2002.

The offspring of Olympic Ferro do extremely well in both dressage and jumping. He has became No 1 on the BN World stallion rankings in dressage.
