Three top progenitors at 1 station

In addition to our up-and-coming young talents, the three top progenitors of our station showed themselves with great enthusiasm on Easter Monday. All 3 impressed them in their own way. The preferent Negro (by Ferro) and the preferent Painted Black (by Gribaldi). And the stallion who has since set up his own stallion line; Lord Leatherdale (by Lord Loxley) under saddle.

The emperor of our station is the now 24-year-old preferent top progenitor Negro (Ferro x Variant). Negro continues to stand out with his offspring. Last summer there were again many daughters who scored high on the studbook recordings of the KWPN. Negro crossed with today’s bloodlines continues to give a modern sport horse without losing quality. His son Kjento (mv.Jazz) is a wonderful example of this. But also new offspring of Negro continue to report at the highest level; Nespresso (mv.Tenerife) Anne van Olst, Elegance (mv.Monaco) Beatrice Ferrer Salat and River Rise Nisa (mv.Amsterdam) with Charlotte Dujardin, the rider who was unprecedentedly successful with the legendary Valegro (Negro x Gershwin). Negro also passes on his qualities as “father of the mother”. A daughter of Negro almost guarantees breeding success. Striking from Negro daughters include World Champion Glamourdale (by Lord Leatherdale), Grand Prix talent Everdale (by Lord Leatherdale), Pavo Cup winner Jameson RS2 (by Blue Horse Zack), Grand Prix winner Eddieni (by Johnson) and approved stallion Jayson (by Johnson) who is in the race for a World Cup ticket to Ermelo.

The Olympic participant Painted Black is also preferent. This 22-year-old son of the top stallion Gribaldi out of a mother of Ferro showed 2 very modern foals. The proof that Painted Black also still participates well in today’s modern dressage breeding. Painted Black showed himself super fit on Sunday and showed his impressive trotting mechanism. He has had an impressive dressage career and has started a second youth in breeding. More and more of his children break through at the highest level. Recently they are; Charming Lady (x Krack C), Don Bravour (x Chronos), Black Pearl (x Negro) and Zenith (x Krack C).

The now 16-year-old Lord Leatherdale has proven himself at Grand Prix level. The stallion with his “innovative and free” blood lines has set up his own stallion line. A special achievement that is reserved for very few stallions. It fits fantastic at our station in combination with Negro mares. The combination of Lord Leatherdale x Negro is now called “classic”. Chippendale is the first son of this combination. In the meantime, his 3 sons have been approved; Giovanni (x Scandic), Crosby (x  Flemmingh) and Imagine (x Jazz). Everdale also has 3 approved sons at the KWPN; Inclusive (x Uptown), Inverness (x Johnson) and Inspire (x Don Romantic). Van Glamourdale has meanwhile his son Lance V.O.D. (x Davino) approved in Denmark and Lennon (x Jazz) appointed at the KWPN.

Charming Lady set the record price of 700,000 euros on the Excellent Dressage Sales last night. The twelve-year-old elite mare, who competed with Jeanine Nieuwenhuis in the Grand Prix, has found a new owner in Germany. The daughter of our preferent top producer Painted Black (Gribaldi x Ferro) was a true audience favorite.

Glamourdale shines

Friday evening 1st February Glamourdale, together with Charlotte Fry, showed why they are the 2018 FEI World Champion. After a tremendous show during the K+K Cup in Munster this was only the second time that Glamourdale, after his victory last Summer, had appeared in the ring. His impressive trot and canter resulted in an enthusiastic reaction from the public and a standing ovation.

Painted Black hengst

Painted Black offspring score at sub-top competitions

During the sub-top competitions in Rijen and Nieuw-en Sint Josstland last weekend (19th and 20th January), offspring of the preferent Grand Prix stallion Painted Black (Gribaldi x Ferro) were at the top of the leaderboard.

Zingaro-Apple RS2 (Painted Black x Renovo) and Marieke van der Putten won the Grand Prix in Rijen with 71.74%. In Nieuw-en Sint Joostland there was a second place in the Inter I, with 64.48%, for Geert-Jan Raateland with Painted (Painted Black x Sandro Hit).

Everdale Hengst Lottie

Someren: Everdale wins U25 Grand Prix with 75.38%

Today, 30th November, a Sub-top competition was held at Het Keelven in Someren. The 2 ladies, Lottie Fry and Franka Loos, from Team Van Olst were emphatically present and performed very nice tests under the watchful eye of trainer Anne van Olst and our competition groom Claire James.

The exceptionally talented stallion Everdale (Lord Leatherdale x Negro) won the combined Big Tour class with a superb score of 75.38% in the U25 Grand Prix. “Just an incredibly good test with really nice series and a lot of eights for the piaffe and passage sections”, according to a happy Charlotte Fry. Everdale’s sire, Lord Leatherdale (Lord Loxley x Ferragamo), also scored well in the Inter II and was 2nd in this class with 66.39%. “Lord had a couple of small mistakes that prevented a higher score, he didn’t jump through well in a pirouette, but for the two-time series he scored a 9!”

In the ZZ-Z class Lottie made her debut with a Lord Leatherdale-son. This For Your Eyes Only scored well in all sections and narrowly missed the 70%. This combination showed much perspective for the future.
