KWPN stallionshow presentation newly approved stallions

Like every year, the presentation of the stallions that were approved by the KWPN last year is eagerly awaited. Van Olst Horses has approved the stallions Secret Lover v. Secret x Furstenball breeder B. Zumbruch from Wangerland DLD and O’Frederic v. For Romance I x Fidertanz breeder H. Schulte from Eggermuhlen DLD.

O’Frederic clearly showed why he could be approved last fall. This beautiful brown horse showed to have a very good uphill canter, in walk he showed the much sought-after suppleness and space and in trot he could impress with a very good technique of moving.

Secret Lover, who was approved in the spring of 2022 and whose first foals are expected this year, has become a lot stronger and more mature. The elegant black walked the course with a lot of go as if he had never done anything else.

Don Joe and Lars van de Hoenderheide report at top level

Lottie Fry had a busy autumn 2022, with full focus on her horses Glamourdale, Kjento, Everdale and Dark Legend in particular. This was a very successful period, but everything goes on, and there is also another good batch of new talents eager to break through.
Especially Don Joe (by Diego x Lord Leatherdale breeder: Van Olst Horses) and Lars van de Hoenderheide (by Negro x Layout breeder: J. Sips – Loenhout, Belgium) are knocking on the door at this highest level. Don Joe was very successful in at the beautiful CDI in Leeuwarden with fine scores of 71.5%
in the Grand Prix and 72.681% in the Special. Then in early January he had a super competition at the CDI in Exloo, scoring 71.913% and the Grand Prix and winning the Freestyle with 77.895%.
Lars van de Hoenderheide had a super international debut at the CDI Leeuwarden and a fine 70.61% in the Grand Prix and a stunning score in the Freestyle with 77.895%
Then on 21 January, Lars was winner at the Subtop Grand prix in Someren with a nice 72.772% score.
To top it all off, last weekend came the international World Cup debut for Lars van de Hoenderheide at “Jumping Amsterdam”.
Lars scored a fantastic 73.109% in the Grand Prix, and then he scored great in the Freestyle with a stunning 78.339% with a “borrowed” Freestyle from stablemate Dark Lagend.
The future for Don Joe and Lars looks bright, the start has been made, and we look forward to what the coming season will bring for them.
Besides Don Joe and Lars van de Hoenderheide, Inclusive (by Everdale x Uptown, breeder: H. Enting, Grollo) will also have to compete this coming season. This very talented son of Everdale, plays with the heaviest exercises and we are looking forward to what next season will bring for him.
Lottie is
also busy building up her 2 small tour horses. Especial (by Everdale x Vivaldi breeder: C. van Bavel, Oosterhout) and Jackson (by Everdale x Negro breeder: Van Olst Horses) are 2 very talented horses for whom Grand Prix work is not unthinkable in the near future.

Busy days for Lottie Fry at the KWPN Stallion Selection

The upcoming KWPN Stallion Selection in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (3 and 4 February), promise to be busy days for Charlotte Fry. The young stallions of Van Olst Horses, Secret Lover (by Secret x Fürstenball breeder: B.Zumbruch, Wangerland, Germany) and O’Frederic (by For Romance I x Fidertanz breeder: Heike Schulte, Eggermühlen, Germany) will make their appearance on Friday 3 February under the saddle of Lottie Fry.

In addition, Glamourdale as FEI No.1 and World Champion 2022 and 2018 will be put in the spotlight on Friday. Of course, Kjento cannot be missing here, he will be honoured as “KWPN Horse of the Year 2022”.

A great recognition for this two-time world champion, an honour already bestowed upon his stablemates Negro and Glamourdale.

The young talents

In addition, on Saturday evening, 4 February, top horses Nalegro (Painted Black x Negro breeder: J. Hanse, Burgh Haamstede/Van Olst Horses) and Nacho (by Negro x Krack breeder: S. Maakenschijn, Chaam) will be ridden by Lottie during the final Stallion Competition Class L.

Nalegro and Nacho do good business at stallion competition in Exloo

Nalegro, by Painted Black x full sister Valegro, continued his rise under Lottie Fry in Exloo. After the 86.6 points in Ermelo that were good for second place, there were now 88.8 points good for the win.

Nalegro has been considered an absolute top talent from the operations onwards who seems to have everything for the highest level.

Furthermore, Nalegro received an 8.8 for walk, a 9 for trot, an 8.9 for canter, an 8.8 for harmony and an 8.9 for overall impression.

Our second stallion Nacho, by Negro x Krack C, is also on his rise. The big Negro son also ran to a score of 82.4 under Lottie Fry in Kronenberg, received 84 points in Ermelo and now 86.6 points which was good for third place.

Kjento KWPN Dressage Horse of the Year 2022!

We are proud to announce that our Kjento, by Negro x Jazz, has been named KWPN Dressage Horse of the Year 2022.

He more than earned this title after becoming world champion for the second time this year at the Longines FEI/WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses, this time in the seven-year-old dressage horses. The Negro son, bred by A.J. van Os, stood head and shoulders above the rest of the podium of honour.

In the performance test, Kjento emerged as the best stallion of the test with 90 points. Kjento started 2021 with victory in the stallion competition class M, followed by gold in the six-year-old dressage horses at the World Championships Young Dressage Horses.

Everdale back in the ring at Mechelen

Everdale, by Lord Leatherdale x Negro, ran in the ring again in Mechelen for the first time after his last performance in Ermelo last September.

Under Lottie Fry, Everdale, bred by P. Kluytmans, ran to a fine 2nd place in the CDI Worldcup Grand Prix on the first day with a score of 75.783%.

On the second day, the duo ran to a nice score of 83.725% in the CDI Worldcup Freestyle freestyle kur to music, finishing in 3rd place.

With these results we were able to end the year nicely at this last show of 2022!

No. 1 FEI ranking for Lottie and Glamourdale icing on the cake 2022!

We can look back on a great 2022 in which we were able to achieve great achievements including the two times individual gold at the World Championships in Herning for Lottie and Glamourdale, the victory of Lottie and Kjento in the seven-year-old dressage horses at the Longines FEI/WBFSH Dressage World Breeding Championships for Young Horses and earlier this year Lottie was also named the Peden Bloodstock FEI Best Athlete of 2022.
After all the amazing achievements of Lottie and Glamourdale, both are now at the top of the global ranking for best dressage athlete and best dressage horse as of 31-12-2022.

Lottie Fry and Glamourdale ‘on fire’ for a frenzied home audience

The British public went wild on Saturday night when their own Charlotte Fry and the KWPN stallion Glamourdale (Lord Leatherdale out of Thuja stb pref prest by Negro, breeder J.W. Rodenburg of Ouderkerk aan den IJssel) started their last piaffe passage tour in the Freestyle on Music in London.

Herning’s world champions took it one step further and danced to victory in the World Cup competition with a personal best of 90.995%.

It was the first time that Lottie Fry was on British soil with her golden World Cup horse Glamourdale. The stallion was in great shape, 22 tens were on the protocol. Many of those tens fell in the artistic section, but also for the extended canter (five times), the two tempis, the halfpass to the left, the extended trot and the halt. Very well deserved, the score came to 90.995%, a personal best and a convincing victory.

Incredible crowd
“The crowd support tonight has been incredible, and to end this amazing year here is amazing! It’s almost impossible to sum up 2022 – it’s been incredible and coming to London and performing in front of my home crowd is the best feeling and the best way to end the year!” said Fry.

Of the Glamourdale performance, she said, “I had such an easy, fun ride. He’s better than in Herning and we keep improving, so I can’t wait for the next few years. Paris (Olympics 2024) is definitely the target, and we’ll see how it goes until then.”

Lottie and Glamourdale in a league of their own in London

After the two gold medals at the World Cup in Herning last August, Charlotte Fry returned to the ring today at the World Cup competition in London with Glamourdale (by Lord Leatherdale x Negro, breeder Mr. Rodenburg). It was a dream comeback: the top score of 84.026% appeared on the boards for the “short” Grand Prix, another new personal best for Lottie.

Lottie and Glamourdale’s test was rewarded with a whole series of eights and nines. The ultimate ten appeared for seven parts: the entry and halt, the extended trot, the two tempies and the one tempies, the extended canter, the first passage on the AC line and the last halt. She was placed as number 1 by the entire jury corps. With a score of 84.026%, the combination was more than five percent ahead of the nr 2 combination.
