Negro son Diego leaves a good impression at Dutch Championships

Franka Loos and Giovanni (Chippendale x Scandic) finished 5th in the classification of the Small Tour during the Dutch Championship in Ermelo. In the U25 class, Franka made her debut with the black KWPN approved stallion Diego (Negro x Don Gregory). This still early combination left a very good impression. Unfortunately, they had just a few too many matching errors to achieve a high score, but the quality and potential are certainly there. With more routine in the U25 tests, this combination will definitely score higher.

Watch the Kur on music here during the Dutch Championships on May 24-26.

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.

Winning debut Ferrer-Salat with Negro son Elegance

The CDI3 * in Granada (ESP) was the international debut in the Grand Prix of the Spanish top rider Beatriz Ferrer-Salat with the KWPN bred Elegance. Ferrer-Salat won the Grand Prix with 69,413% and was second in the Special (70,872%) with the son of Negro. Two weeks ago the pair won the Grand Prix and Special nationally with percentages above 70%.

As a three-year-old Elegance was sold to Beatriz Ferrer-Salat. Beatriz also bought Elegance’s full brother, the NRPS approved stallion Nick. Both Nick and Elegance are bred by Van Olst Horses and come from the elite, preferent sport (dres) mare Reina. This daughter of Monaco x Sultan ran herself under the name “The Rose” at international Small Tour level.
The ten-year-old gelding won several young horse classes in Spain and was calmly trained until the Grand Prix. In Granada was the international debut in the Big Tour. In the Grand Prix the combination was first with 69.413%. “I am very happy with Elegance, it was his first international performance and they were not optimal weather conditions,” Ferrer-Salat continued, “so there were moments of excitement, but it is a great horse that is becoming increasingly comfortable in the tests.”

Interesting to note that in the Van Olst Sales collection 2019, two mares from Elegance’s mother will be auctioned. These are number 32 Liza (Nespresso x Monaco x Sultan) and number 36 Lady Rose (Glamourdale x Monaco x Sultan).

Negro-daughter highest score at IBOP

During the IBOP in Luttenberg in Overijssel, 15 mares succeeded. In terms of points, Lady (by Negro) scored 83.5 points with the dressage horses.

The dressage mares had a high success rate and also an outlier came forward. Veterinarian and team veterinary Edwin Enzerink came out as a breeder / registered for the only three-year-old Lady (Negro from Welcome keur IBOP dres of Krack C), who could subsequently also be declared “ster”. She collected 83.5 points in the IBOP with 9s for both the balance and the ridetability. A striking result for the mare that has to be three years old. “This well-developed mare excelled in her attitude, balance, support and workability. That was strikingly good for such a young mare. The trot and canter are with a lot of leg technique and the image is always beautiful uphill. Lady can already ride and work fantastically well, and is a generous and upward-built mare, “says inspector Henk Dirksen.

Kjento Impresses

The beginning of the dressage evening during the Stallion Inspection in Den Bosch is always marked by a presentation of the stallions who have been approved during the past year. The absolute performance champion of the Autumn Inspection is Kjento. This modern son of Negro x Jazz x Juventus, bred by the van Os family, achieved 90 points in his test. The highest score ever given to a three-year-old stallion! As new superstar he showed the large audience his tremendous potential. Always uphill, always with ‘takt’ and regularity, always with elasticity, always in balance and always willing to work. A star in a nutshell, that made an overwhelming impression.
