Houston Belisar Saros XX
Ciola Pion
Jarlen Pinkus Pandur
Farlen Maat



His daughters highly-placed in shows give Houston high index scores for exterior and movements and also his offspring show an above average talent for dressage.
The dressage index of 158 places Houston among the better dressage progenitors.  In 2002 two of Houston's sons were appointed for testing in Ermelo:
1  Sergio (aka Sam Sam), Houston x Zandigo - a classic example of how a dressage horse should move - became one of the auction toppers of the Select Sale.
2  Symphonie, Houston x Columbus - the champion of the 2002 stallion selection who brought ecstasy to both public and judges with his looks, charisma and quality of movement.

In The Leading KWPN Sires of 1995, he was described as "one of those stallions expected to boost Dutch dressage breeding."
