With her beautiful face and willing kind nature, people fall in love with this sweet girl wherever she goes!
This lovely girl is a bay/brown 16.1hh, 4 year old KWPN Dutch Warmblood with decent bone to rival most hunters. She is by the gentleman riding horse Dark Vision (MFS Vision (Flemmingh x Ferro) out of the beautiful Romy (JetSet x Zandigo). With the combination of the several preferent stallions on both the sire and dam side, this makes for a strong dressage and jumping pedigree but this girl has the bonus of having a very willing character with a sane and sensible brain.
Started under saddle in June 2016 she has progressed quickly with three correct and straight paces and a comfortable trot which is easy to ride to and does not bounce you out of the saddle. Ridden by tall and small people, she loves her work, especially hacking out and going for a canter up the field; her brakes are excellent. She pops a small jump and shows enthusiasm and the scope to go further. Left to mature and brought on slowly, she is low mileage and is now mature and ready to progress in her work. Would suit an amateur dressage/jump/event/riding club rider or showing home where she has the potential to go further but would equally suit someone looking for a happy hacker/general riding horse that they can love and enjoy. Kind natured and well mannered, she is lovely in and out of the stable; she loves nothing more than coming over for a brush and a cuddle. She was successfully shown in-hand as a foal and youngster in both hunter and sportshorse classes - always in the top ribbons. Good to box, shoe and catch, she winters out and is a good doer.
Her dam is the wonderful KWPN mare “Romy” who competed successfully in dressage before being retired sound to stud. Romy’s sire is the legendary Jetset D, sire of Carl Hester’s stallion Pro-Set and numerous high class performance horses such as the International Grand prix showjumper Jonkeer Z and the International Grand prix Dressage horse "On Top". Jetset D competed successfully in show jumping before going to Natalie Smeets to be trained for dressage where he competed at international level. Jetset D's sire, Zircoon, was an international Grand Prix horse ridden by Bert Rutten. Romy’s dam Fidelia (STER) is also very well bred by Zandigo (Amor) and her grand-dam Aafke is the grand-dam of the famous dressage stallion Special D. Romy’s damline has proven to be a consistent producer of upper level sport horses including the International Grand Prix showjumper Poncho by Contender, the International showjumper Superieur by Ferro, the approved KWPN Prix St Georges dressage stallion Special D, the approved SF Dressage stallion Jeoris by Ferro, and no less than ten advanced medium dressage horses and other National level show jumpers. Many of the mares from this damline have also been awarded with predicates at the KWPN Keurings.
Her sire is Dark Vision is a true gentleman riding horse and combines the best aspects as being exceptionally well moving with strong conformation along with the kindest and easiest of natures. Dark Vision is by the famous MFS Vision out of Osprey B. In 2004 as a 2 year old, at the Scottish Sportshorse (SSH) Gradings, MFS VISION was awarded a 1st Premium from the KWPN Inspectors Mr Toine Hoefs and Miss Ine van Deurzen. During the feedback Mr Hoefs said he thought Vision had International potential as a dressage horse. In September 2005 he went forward for Stallion Grading, this time judged by the KWPN Inspectors Miss Ine van Deurzen and Mr Bart Henstra. He was proclaimed the CHAMPION STALLION and awarded the highest status of "LICENSED", with top marks for movement, conformation and jump. He spent 2008 in Holland being trained at Stal Laarrakkers before returning to the UK.
In September 2007 he presented his first crop of foals through the SSH, MFS CALIANA, MFS CASSANDRA, COLOURED VISION and PERFECT VISION were all awarded 1st Premiums. His daughter MFS CASSANDRA was the highest awarded horse out of 145 forward for movement! At the 2008 BEF Futurity Evaluations his stock were again successful. COLOURED VISION was awarded a 1st Premium in the dressage section, and WILDWIND ILLUSION was awarded a 1st Premium in the eventing section. In 2009 his daughter MFS CALIANA was the overall highest scoring horse at the SSH Gradings held throughout Scotland!! In 2010 two of his daughters from his first foal crop were awarded the STER PREDICATE - MFS CALIANA with 78% AND HAZARD FLEUR with 76%!
In the dressage arena his offspring MFS CALIANA and WILDWIND HORIZON are both making their marks, with MFS CALIANA ridden by Jennifer Johnston now multiple Regional Champion at Prelim, Novice and Elementary, also Reserve National Champion at Prelim level. She is now competing at Medium and has qualified for the Winter Regional Championships 2015. WILDWIND HORIZON has also qualified at both the Prelim and Novice Regional Championships, and will also be heading for the Winter Regional Championships 2015. Another son MFS DE VISION is gaining marks of 74%+ in Prelim level in 2014.
The dam OSPREY B (Invincible B x Belisar x Naturel) was awarded the "Ster" predicated by the KWPN judges and produced several 1st Premium foals. Her dam GEESKE also produced the "Ster" mare POLO B by Jurius. The grandmother BABOOSHKA produced the ZZ level dressage horse FRESCO, the "Ster Prok" mare JABOOSHKA and the Z level dressage horse TRISTAN. Osprey has been a consistent producer of elegant, tall, big moving offspring, all blessed with her wonderful nature.
