At the studbook inspection today in Den Hout, 26 dressage horses were presented. Of these, 23 became ster, including six with at least 80/80. Top scorer was the by Gerard de Bruyn bred Peru Dos (Kjento x Krack C) of Gertjan and Anne van Olst.
With an upper beam of 85/85, Peru Dos (Kjento out of Cadanz A elite IBOP-dres by Krack C, breeder Gerard de Bruyn of Schelluinen) of Van Olst Horses was the best scoring mare of the day. For her trot she received 90 points.
“This is an athletically built, well in the rectangular model mare with lots of front, a strong topline and well-developed foundation. She strides with good body use, tact and space. In trot she has lots of power and power, a good leg technique, lots of balance and she can switch easily. In canter she shows a very nice silhouette, in which she goes uphill and can easily change,” says Bart Bax enthusiastically who judged the horses together with Floor Dröge.
Three mares became star with 80/85. First, Passiana (Taminiau out of Gabriana V.O.D. ster PROK by Uphill) by breeder Joanneke van Os from Sprang-Capelle. “This mare has lots of charisma, a beautiful front with expressive head, a well-muscled neck in which she could still have a fraction more length, a good withers/shoulders and well-developed feet. She steps actively with good stride, she trots light-footed with a good use of the hind leg and in this she needs little speed to balance well.
With the same upper beam, the Jayson daughter Pearl B (out of Gwendolyn ster PROK by Lord Leatherdale, breeder A.J. Bakker of Alkmaar) of Van Olst Horses won ster. “This is a sufficiently developed, well-set in the rectangular model mare with an expressive head, good neck shape and strong topline. In her feet this 1.63m mare could have a little more development. She steps actively, spacious, with power and body use. She trots light-footed, with good impulsion and switchability. In canter she has a lot of jump and power, where for even higher marks she could show a little more flexion in the hind leg.”
Gertjan van Olst also did good business with the 80/85-scoring, homebred Passiebloem (Lantanas out of Fresia ster PROK by Negro). “An ample, long-lined mare who is upwardly built and has a lot of charisma. She has a well-muscled neck and strong topline. Her walk is tactful and active, where she could show a little more body use. In her light-footed trot she has good suppleness, posture and leg technique. In canter her looseness stands out, she brings her hind leg well under the mass and stays well closed.”
Van Olst’s Pegasus (Glamourdale by Kalua elite IBOP-dres PROK by Negro, breeder Piet van de Brandt of Volkel) also walked to the ster predicate with 85 points, she additionally received 75 points for conformation. “This sufficiently developed mare stands well in the rectangular model and has a slightly heavy head/neck connection. Her neck is of good shape and muscling, in her topline she could be a bit stronger, her foundation is more than sufficiently correct. She appreciates herself positively in trot and canter: she trots with a lot of leg technique, space, balance and a good undergoing hind leg. For her canter they could give her 90 points, in that she has a lot of power and balance, she can switch and change easily, and continues to canter very well on the hind leg and in posture. Her walk is active but in that she could show more looseness and space.”
Ster with 80/80 were Perica (Kjento by Dulcia ster by Krack C, breeder M. Streppel from Lemelerveld) of Van Olst Horses and the gelding Power (Kjento by Uzella elite PROK by Gribaldi, breeder P.G.H. van Loon from Galder) of Van Olst Horses, with whom their sire showed his calling card.
“Perica is an amply developed and ditto long-lined mare with a nice front, strong topline and good croup. Her foundation is hard and correct. In walk she is diligent, has good reach and body use. In trot she is light-footed and moves with suppleness, good reach and leg technique. In canter she has good scope and jump, in that she could hold her balance a little better in the turns.”
“The three-year-old gelding Power is generously developed, stands well in the rectangular model, has a nice topline and well-developed foundation. He strides with power, tact and body use. In trot he has good posture and moves uphill nicely from the hind leg, where he could have a little more shoulder freedom. Also in canter we see his good posture and balance, he needs little speed in it.”

Veeke from Standdaarbuiten (75/80), Passadena (Negro out of Evalira elite EPTM-dres D-OC by Jazz, breeder A. van den Broek from Boekel) by Van Olst Horses (75/80), Petra (Jayson out of Cairo prest PROK by Samarant, breeder R.
