Maternal half-brother to Olympic Individual Silver Medallist Winsome Adante!

Future Gravitas has quite exceptional genetics. His sire is 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.

Future Gravitas’s dam is the Elite mare Juswith Genoa, making Future Gravitas a half-brother to the Olympic Silver medallist, WEG Gold medallist and multiple 4* Winner Winsome Adante, as well as, CCI** Eventer & Young Event Horse World Championships Qualifier Future Genie, 2006 BEF UK CHAMPION Event Foal Future Glamour, ELITE BEF Event Foal Future Gold Digger, and ELITE BEF Event Foal & Premium ZfDP Foal Future Gravitie.

Here’s the link to the USEA Hall of Fame induction for Winsome Adante –


As a 5 yr old Future Gravitas won his first British Eventing 5 yr old Qualifier by more than 5 marks and has since gone on to win at both BE100 and Novice level and has successfully competed at International CCI-S2* jumping double clear. He has also been exceptionally successful at dressage winning the majority of his tests at both Elementary and Medium level with scores up to 74%, qualifying for firstly the Regionals and then the Nationals at both levels. He has also showjumped at BS Newcomers level.

His first main crop of foals were 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 – who is now WBFSH No.1 Ranked Sire of Eventers – 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 who is now successfully competing at BE Novice level as a 5yr old.
