BB Flemminghton was an elegant horse who possessed superb conformation, looks and impeccable bloodlines. His athletic and correct paces together with a kind and trainable temperament assured him of success in his dressage or showjumping career.
BB Flemminghton was bred in Australia using imported frozen semen. He inherited his fathers mind, movement and conformation. He was an athlete with incredible lightness and agility. His movement was expressive with perfect rhythm.
He showed great style and scope whilst Free Jumping as a 2 year old.
'Mac' had his stallion assessment with I.S.S.A. in August, 2002, finishing with the highest mark out of all the stallions assessed. Not only was his movement superb, he scored an 8.6 for freejumping, and was shortly after sort by one of the assessors to stand at one of Australia's leading Warmblood studs.
He was started under saddle by Hayley Beresford in October, 2002, and after only six rides was finished!! Hayley then campaigned him before he was moved to NSW where he was campaigned by Graham Chapple. His movement under saddle is breathtaking and his trainability is ten out of ten.
He is out of Amsterdam (dec.), a Head Studbook mare with the Australian Warmblood Horse Association. Amsterdam had powerful yet light, rhythmic and expressive movement. She was an excellent jumper with great style as well as being super careful.

Flemmingh sires beautiful big, long lined horses with three perfect gaits. This can be seen on numerous Ster and Keur mares and champion foals. His foals are very much in demand by dressage riders, trainers and dealers because they are very eager learners, like to work and move very easily. Flemmingh is an internationally appreciated dressage stallion.
The first international performances of his offspring have shown them to be truly world class. His son Lingh has won in Intermediare 1 and Prix St. George, and his son Krack C won a Kur at Prix St George. Krack C was selected by Olympic Gold medalist Anky Van Grunsven for training.

Amsterdam is the result of purpose breeding over many years to produce a mare that was suitable to breed international quality. She was started as a 4yo and showed great promise both in dressage and showjumping. She was ridden to Official novice level and was showing lovely clear rounds over 3' fences before being retired to stud as a 6 year old. She was an extremely sensitive and enthusiastic mare with strong, but light rhythmic paces and an eagerness to please. A well boned mare with excellent conformation. In 2003 Amsterdam tragically died shortly after having her last foal, BB Concerto (see For Sale). She was 11 years old and is greatly missed. Thank you my dear girl for the foals and the memories.
The combination of two excellent types, in Flemmingh and Amsterdam resulted in the outstanding colt,BB Flemminghton.

Inspection report of Flemmingh. He is a very honest obedient stallion with a good nature, he is friendly and joyful. In the beginning of the inspection during the introduction to the saddle Flemmingh looks very youthful in his work: sometimes the stallion lets his tongue hang out of his mouth. Flemmingh gives the rider a reasonably good feeling. The walk is roomy and active the trot has sufficient movement. The trot gives a little bit the impression, by the use of the front legs, of being untidy. The canter is very good and by jumping, Flemmingh shows a change in technique, he is very careful and shows a lot of ability. In the country Flemmingh has a very good canter. He could lay a bit more in the tempo of the canter. Flemmingh is very willing to work and he takes his work as easy. As a dressage horse Flemmingh has sufficient talent; as a showjumper he has a lot of talent. At the arrival at the inspection centre his condition was good and during the inspection and work the condition remained the same. In the stable the stallion shows to be very quiet. The veterinary report shows no peculiarities.
He looks quite strongly built, a riding type stallion with a fatherly expression and a very impressive front. The mid section could be a little bit stronger while he also gives the impression of being a bit high on his legs. The angle of the pasterns is a touch weak.
The report of the mother, called Texas by the Holsteiner, Carneval. Inspection in 1990.
Also a solid developed riding type mare, almost a touch too big. She has a very impressive face and a very nice shaped neck. The withers and the shoulders are fantastic the back is good. The loins could be a little more muscled. Very well shaped croup that could be a touch longer. The front legs from the side are very well positioned however the left front leg is a little pigeon toed. The hind legs a touch long. Through an accident, the front fetlocks are a bit thick but the rest of the bone work is very well developed. The walk is very good the trot could be a touch roomier and more powerful. Her size was 174cm

from J. Saunders re BB Fanfare
I don’t know how many times people who new Steve and who did not know Steve stopped and asked about Flirt and her breeding. At one point, a judge actually came up and said “who is this absolutely gorgeous creature”.
