Future Gravitas has quite exceptional genetics. His sire, Grafenstolz evented to 3* level with Olympic Champion Michael Jung, and was both the 6YO Bundeschampion in Eventing, and the 6YO Young Event Horse World Champion at Le Lion d’Angers. He is the only horse in history to qualify for all 3 of the German Federal Championships (Bundeschampionats) in Eventing, Dressage and Showjumping. Future Gravitas has the honour of being the first British bred son of Grafenstolz to be licensed as a stallion and has been further accepted to issue covering certificates for studbooks in the UK and USA.
As a 5 yr old Future Gravitas won his first British Eventing Qualifier by more than 5 marks and has since gone on to win at both BE100 and Novice level and is now successfully competing at International CCI-S2*. He has also been exceptionally successful at dressage winning the majority of his tests at both Elementary and Medium levels, qualifying for firstly the Regionals and then the Nationals at both levels. He is also showjumping at BS Newcomers level.
His first main crop of foals was presented to the BEF Futurity in 2015 with their excellent scores resulting in Future Gravitas being the No.1 Ranked Sire of Eventers in the Futurity Series in 2015, a quite remarkable achievement for a 1st season stallion. Interestingly his sire Grafenstolz took 2nd place on the rankings after Future Gravitas, showing what a prepotent line this is for passing the traits required for equine athletes.
Future Gravitas carries more than 50% thoroughbred and anglo-arab blood making him an exciting option for breeders seeking movement and jump but without compromising speed and stamina. His foals are tall, athletic models and have received consistently excellent reviews from breeders. Future Gravitas has already attracted the attention of serious breeders both in the UK and abroad with MARY KING nominating her 4* WINNER, Kings Temptress to him resulting in a fantastic colt being born in 2015.
Gravitas is a maternal brother to 3-times winner of the Kentucky CCI5*, Winsome Adante, and is a paternal brother to TeamGB eventer Lordships Graffalo selected for the 2022 World Games, Pratoni and won Badminton 2023.
