The sire of Kinnaras is the Dutch stallion Olympic Orpheus, who with rider Jessica Ransehousen was the 1987 Intermediare II Horse of the Year and the USET Reserve Champion Horse of the Year. In 1988, in addition to winning all Olympic qualifying events, he represented the United States at the Seoul Olympics and was the USDF Grand Prix horse of the year.

Damsire Ansbach is a descendent of Abglanz, perhaps the most influential stallion of modern times in the Hannoverian breeding district  His infusion of Trakehner lightness and ‘blood’ can be clearly seen in today’s modern Hannoverian horse. Although the lightly framed Trakehner was not initially welcomed in an era when agricultural horses were in great demand. Abglanz was royally bred, his dam, Abendluft was a full-sister to the influential stallions, Absinth, Absalon and Abendstern. At the stallion station at Jork, he produced three famous brothers – Abhang I, II and III, as well as their full sister, Zukunft who competed with success internationally with Alwin Schockemöhle. Just 160 cm, Abhang I produced elegant horses but without great performance success. Abhang II, at 157 cm, was the smallest of the three brothers, but produced great dressage horses, with charm and movement. Abhang III, the tallest of the three, sired mainly showjumpers. All told Abglanz sired 19 Approved sons, with progeny earnings of over DM324,000  Abhang III is the sire of Ansbach, thus there is significant jumping blood present in the pedigree
of Kinnaras.

Dam Dam’s sire Gong further introduces jumping blood in the pedigree of Kinnaras. Gong comes from the old foundation lines of Goldfisch II, who sired the exceptional Grand Prix jumper Gladstone ridden by Hugo Simon, with whom he won the first Volvo World Cup in 1979. Gladstone and Hugo Simon were over a decade nearly invincible in the international Grand Prixs. The Goldfisch II line has a tremendous influence in the international shows in dressage and jumping.

Kinnaras is an extremely attractive 17.h stallion with an impressive performance record with 2010 WEG competitor Todd Flettrich and Missy Ransehousen.  Todd trained Kinnaras all the way to Grand Prix.  They had many top three finishes at the FEI levels.
