Comments from 1994 Dutch Stud Book "Leading Sires of the Netherlands"

Dublin Progeny: "Dublin showed a uniform group of foals, that proved to be well-developed. The heads are very noble, according to the jury, often having a strikingly beautiful eye, while the foals also had strong muscled backs and croups. The trot of Dublin offspring is good with a lot of space, elasticity, free moving shoulders, and they often use the front legs in a very skillful manner. In the 1991, a colt by Dublin became Champion of Brabant. In '92, a 2 yr. old filly by Dublin became Dutch Champion at the UTV and a 3 yr. old son, one of the best all-rounders, was approved. All in all, Dublin, still young in years, already is considered a very successful breeding stallion."

Along with the KWPN , Dublin is also approved with NA/WPN, German Oldenburg Verband, and the CWHBA.
