Everdale available through fresh semen

For the Grand Prix stallion Everdale and Charlotte Fry the focus for this year is on possible participation in the Olympic Games in Tokyo. That is why Van Olst Horses decided to make Everdale (by Lord Leatherdale x Negro, breeder P. Kluitmans) available to breeders this year only by means of frozen semen.

However, now that the Corona virus gives a lot of uncertainty about, among other things, the continuation of the coming competition season (and therefore also about the Olympic Games), Everdale is immediately available to the breeders through fresh semen (EU). We keep a close eye on the developments surrounding the Olympic Games.

Everdale and Lottie are in great shape and continue to train according to schedule, which means for now that all options are kept open for both sport and breeding.

Stallionpresentation april 10th now online

As everyone knows, the Corona virus is gripping the whole world. We also take our responsibility in this. After the show in Exloo that has been canceled, we have now decided to cancel the show in Den Hout. In order to be able to present our stallions, we have decided in consultation with ClipMyHorse to broadcast an online presentation of all stallions that would otherwise also be shown in the show. This presentation can be seen on Friday evening April 10 from 7.30 pm and will also be shown online for free in the media library of ClipMyHorse.


Inverness (s. Everdale) sold

The talented 7 year old stallion Inverness (v. Everdale x Johnson x Variant, breeder Y.M.M. van Maasacker) was sold by his owners Van Olst Horses and Lickley Horses UK. The new owner is the Korean company W. Horseland. Inverness will remain in the Netherlands and will be trained and shown by Brecht D’Hoore in the future.

Inverness was bought as a foal at the Limburg Foal Auction by the combination Van Olst / Lickley.

As a 3-year-old, Inverness has been KWPN approved and registered for breeding after a very good performance test. Last year (2019) Inverness showed a very good collection of foals. Over the years Inverness has been carefully trained at Van Olst Horses. The Everdale son already showed his special talents during his training.

Brecht D’Hoore: “I am very happy with the opportunity to ride this stallion! We have been a combination for 2 weeks now and we are starting to know each other. Inverness is a horse with a lot of talent and a real personality. We are going to take the time to get to know each other well and he seems to have a lot to offer for the Grand Prix. I am extremely grateful to the people of W. Horseland for giving me such an opportunity as a rider. ”

Inverness remains available for breeding via Van Olst Horses.

NAF Dressage Talent Berlicum

The 5 year old gelding Kenndale v. Everdale continues to perform well under the saddle of Nora van Houtem-Vos. Yesterday, the black eyecatcher, bred by Wim van Driel from Loosbroek, won the NAF Dressage Talent Berlicum in a convincing way.

After finishing at a great 3rd place last month in the final of the Subli Cup during Jumping Amsterdam, they managed to win this competition for the second time in a row. Mara De Vries and Alex van Silfhout gave no less than 91 points to Kenndale. Guest rider Dinja van Liere gave the highest points that can be given: the ultimate 100 points!

“After the third time under saddle I started riding him myself. His character and willingness to work make him unique. Every day he wants to be there for me and it is a very sympathetic horse. You only have to try something once, then he understands and does it, and he always enjoys the work, is very good and has three great gaits: what else do you want? There is a lot of potential in Kenndale and he picks up the work very easily, I don’t sell him! ” Nora said.

Third with 82 and 80 points was also a son of Everdale: Kings-Dream WH (mv.Gribaldi). This talent also has a half brother who competes at  Grand Prix. The black gelding also won a competition for young dressage horses last year. Kings-Dream WH appeared first this morning in the ring ridden by Brecht D’Hoore. He and Dominique D’Hoore ride several horses for the owners of Kings-Dream WH from South Korea.

The Everdale son Kazan A scored under Aniek de Laat a total of 81 points. The dam of this Kazan A is a full sister of the Grand Prix horse Kingsley Vinzar.

Today, Sunday, the program continues with the four-year-olds.
