Blacklaw Xcalibur
Purebred Leopard spotted bay Knabstrupper
KNN Life Approved and Performance Tested

2010 NOT AT STUD as preparing for his Stallion Test which he passed with flying colours.

Xcalibur is our young homebred stallion who was granted an unlimited breeding licence by the Knabstrupperforeignen for Danmark (KNN) in October 2007. Xcalibur is an impressive horse with light paces and an excellent scopey jump. He is a horse full of enthusiasm and energy combined with a lovely friendly temperament. Xcalibur is a lighter boned Knabstrupper stallion with Arab & TB in his pedigree. It is hoped that he will follow an eventing career although at this early stage he is showing the paces and jump to be successful in any discipline. Xcalibur was professionally backed in 2009 and passed his stallion test late summer 2010 giving him KNN Life Approval.


He is by Xantast Middelsom a Premium graded leopard Knabstrupper stallion. Xantast sired the best foal at the KNN grading in 2004, has had several daughters graded, one with an outstanding 9 and also has a fully graded stallion son. Xantast is by Xanthos, a superb stallion, who has produced international dressage horses and several graded stallion sons.

Xcalibur’s dam is the prolific graded Knabstrupper mare Vixen. Vixen has bred a dynasty of successful Knabstruppers and has been awarded two silver medals for her offspring. In 2007 alone her offspring’s success has been phenomenal. Vixen’s foal was Best in Show at the Scottish KNN Knabstrupper grading achieving a nine overall and she was the only Knabstrupper in the UK to gain such a high mark. Her grandson at the KNN Birmingham grading was awarded a premium 8. Her granddaughter at the UK ZFDP grading was also awarded a foal Premium.
In Denmark at the KNN grading in Zealand her gelding son, Saxer Aested, was Best in Show whilst her granddaughters were Best Foal and Best Youngstock.

Vixen has several Premium graded daughters one of whom received a nine overall in 2005 at the KNN grading in the UK.

Mares who qualify under the Knabstrupper outcross list (e.g. Graded Trakehner, Warmblood or TBs) when bred to Xcalibur may be eligible to receive full mainbook Knabstrupper papers for their offspring.
