Prospects and Foals

When it comes to the young hunter prospect or young jumper prospect, our goals are your goals; we are seeking to produce and raise sound, sane, successful warmbloods in sport. Our broodmares are selected not just for success in sport, but for long, sound hunter/jumper careers. It is rare that we offer a horse younger than riding age for sale – so if a youngster catches your eye, inquire sooner rather than later!

To find more about who among these lovelies are for sale, visit our Sales page. Sometimes even if the prospect that caught your eye isn’t for sale, we might have a 2.0 version of him on the way – so check out our Prospects. Contact Us for more information or just follow the farm on Facebook! Trying to figure out what the next steps would be? The details of Young Horse Board are on the Programs page.

Class of 2019

2019 Contendro I x Another Royal Pain

Contendro I has the rare title of gracing all three WBFSH sire rankings – eventing, show jumping, and dressage. He, in fact, tops the eventing list at #1 and sits at #9 on the show jumping list. This is no random occurrence – Contendro I has the talents to produce upper level jumpers, hunters, or dressage horses. Among a long list of excellent qualities, he contributes excellent jumping technique, beautiful movement, and gorgeous conformation.

Dam Another Royal Pain is a thoroughbred of old-fashioned type that has consistently added power to her foals. Her son Come Hither MFF has proven this in the jump chute, having made a habit of following a casual canter stride with jumping at the top of the standards. He has already made clear he has sufficient scope for the upper level jumpers. 2018 filly Namaste MFF shows her power in her movement, with a great deal of lofty elevation.

Power + Technique means this foal is likely to range between upper level hunter and upper level jumper.

2019 Rotspon x Kona KF

This 2019 foal will be by Rotspon (Rubenstein I/Argentan I/Pik Bube I) out of Kona KF (Cartier R x Ronansact xx)

Rotspon (Rubenstein I/Argentan I/Pik Bube I) has found a great deal of success as both a hunter and dressage sire. He received especially good comments on his temperament and rideability – a quality he is known to pass on to his offspring. His Hunter progeny have gone on to do great things – an example that comes to mind is Grateful (Rotspon x Alina), who found great success in the Second Year Greens and USHJA Hunter Derbies with Scott Stewart as an aside to his career as a Small Junior Hunter.
Dam Kona KF is an extremely typey Dutch Warmblood by Cartier R, himself successful in both the hunter and jumper rings. Her gorgeous topline is not even the best among her assets; she also has jaw-dropping movement that is both flat-kneed and elastic as well as very correct conformation. In terms of temperament, she is sweet and careful. Kona’s dam, Ronansact, has already produced two other talented hunters. Just for Fun KF (Great Pleasure) is a four-year-old that has recently been out at the big A’s in the Green Hunters, and sweeping up the ribbons at that! Intuition KF (Banderas) showed a great deal of talent through the jump chute, with a career to follow.

Disposition + Refinement mean this pairing should result in a high quality hunter prospect.

2019 Combina x Camelita

This 2019 foal will be by Combina (aka Utopie, Jacomar/Calvados) out of Camelita (Cambridge/Lacapo)

Sire Combina showed and won extensively at 1.60 m. His ability to get under the jumps and fold over them in ideal form was a serious asset in the show ring. He has already proven his ability to duplicate those qualities, with multiple offspring winning at 1.50 m and 1.60 m
Dam Camelita also showed to 1.60 m in her heyday, and is built of a modern type with more than sufficient height. She has a half-brother that has also found success in the show ring at 1.40 m, and recently produced a filly that very much takes after her mother.

Dream big, right? This foal will be a show jumping prospect – and hopefully a Grand Prix prospect at that!

2019 Findus x Ralma

This 2019 foal will be by Findus (For Pleasure/Caletto I/Landadel) out of Ralma (Indoctro/Nimmerdor/Uppercut).

Findus (For Pleasure/Caletto I/Landadel) found success up to 1.45 m Grand Prixs. Sire For Pleasure sits at #3 (3!) in the WBFSH Show Jumping Sires ranking, indicating that despite his senior age of 23, he is still producing successful Grand Prix jumpers at a phenomenal rate. In fact, he has 92 offspring listed on HorseTelex that have jumped to 1.60 m or greater! For Pleasure jumped to 1.60 m himself, including winning four team golds at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics and the Hickstead and Donaueschingen European Championships, and earning over $2.1 million! Add Caletto I through Findus’ dam, and the wonderful dual-purpose stallion Landadel, and I think you will find a stallion that is not just upper level jumper material, but also upper level hunter material.
Her dam Ralma jumped to 1.40 m in her heyday before importation into the United States. She is bred Indoctro/Nimmerdor, which is not only a known nick, but a nick between two highly successful show jumping sires. Indoctro (Capitol I/Caletto II/Calypso I) has three of the greatest Holsteiner sires of the 20th century stacked in his pedigree, and he currently sits at #20 on the WBFSH ranking. Nimmerdor was voted Stallion of the 20th Century by the Dutch due to his outstanding contributions to the breed, and is a legend in his own right.
This foal is a top level show jumping prospect that will have a filly factor to Caletto I and Caletto II – making her both an intriguing riding prospect and broodmare prospect!

Class of 2018

Nyssa MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: Filly

Color: Chestnut

Height (est.): 16.2 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative, D-OC Pending

 

Nyssa MFF is by Dakota VDL out of Ralma (Indoctro/Nimmerdor/Uppercut). She is among the boldest, most independent, and most social foals we have ever had. She is extremely correct and is built in a well-balanced, uphill manner that contributes to her free front end in movement. Expect this young filly to be both talented and gorgeous!

Dakota VDL is by Casall ASK/Contender/Landgraf I and has so far been successful to 1.45 m Grand Prixs. Sire Casall ASK is quite the hot ticket in Europe right now, sitting at #5 in the WBFSH Show Jumping Sires ranking and producing successful Grand Prix jumpers at a phenomenal rate. 320 of his 693 offspring listed on Hippomundo have jumped to 1.30 m or greater – with 60 at 1.55 m +! In addition, Casall himself continues to compete in the 1.60 m Grand Prixs and has earned over 2.3 million Euros over his illustrious career! Add through mares Contender and Landgraf I, each legends in their own time, and I think you will find Dakota’s pedigree to be more than prepotent for show jumping success.
Her dam Ralma jumped to 1.40 m in her heyday before importation into the United States. She is bred Indoctro/Nimmerdor, which is not only a known nick, but a nick between two highly successful show jumping sires. Indoctro (Capitol I/Caletto II/Calypso I) has three of the greatest Holsteiner sires of the 20th century stacked in his pedigree, and he currently sits at #20 on the WBFSH ranking. Nimmerdor was voted Stallion of the 20th Century by the Dutch due to his outstanding contributions to the breed, and is a legend in his own right.
This foal is a top level show jumping prospect.

Nefertiti MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: Filly

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 16.2 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: D-OC Pending

 

Nefertiti MFF (Bliss MF x Sabantha Fortuna (Voltaire)) represents a cross between a sire that has seen a great deal of success in producing hunters, and a dam that was herself a phenomenal hunter. Nefertiti herself is an incredible mover, with beautiful elasticity, flat knees, and a long reach through her shoulder. She is also sweet and curious, traits that translate well for later in life.

Bliss MF (Balou du Rouet/Argentinus/Pik Trumpf) has become quite the hot commodity in the last few years, proving to produce athletic, gorgeous horses with striking, elastic movement. Balou du Rouet is #9 on the WBFSH ranking for Show Jumping Sires, and brings talent over fences in addition to wonderful movement. Argentinus himself jumped to 1.50 m and was well known for production of both top quality show jumpers and dressage horses. This combination in a stallion indicates prepotency for producing both great jumpers and great movers – e.g. a show hunter’s dream!

Sabantha Fortuna (Voltaire/Abantos/Ronald/Nimmerdor) made a name for herself showing across the country in the Green Working Hunters under the names “Bijou” and “Priviledge” for more than a decade after jumping to 1.20 m in the Netherlands. She is of the successful fokfamilie 527 (a Dutch mareline) and has four half siblings out of the same dam, all by different stallions, which have jumped to 1.20 m, 1.35 m, 1.40 m, and 1.60 m! The KWPN has given her a jumper breeding value of 122 and crowned her with the title of “Ster”.

This foal is an upper level hunter prospect, and one of our nicest prospects at that – hunters, hunter derbies; the sky is the limit with this remarkable pairing.

Nightengale MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: ?

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 17.1 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative, D-OC Pending

This foal will be Toronto (Now or Never M/Belisar/Saros) x Camelita (Cambridge/Lacapo/Calypso II)

Sire Toronto represents the extremely successful combination of Now or Never M and Belisar/Saros that can also be seen in Valentino, who jumped to 1.40 m, and Vallado (aka Praise) who jumped to 1.30 m had a long and successful career in the derby hunters, including ranking third nationwide for all 4′ Working Hunters in 2011. Toronto himself jumped to 1.30 m and also has a half brother out of the same dam that has jumped to 1.35 m. In addition, 9 of his 47 foals listed on Horsetelex are jumping at 1.30 m or more!

Dam Camelita (Cambridge/Lacapo/Calypso II) jumped to 1.60 m herself, and has a half-brother out of the same dam that jumped to 1.40 m. Her sire Cambridge jumped to 1.40 m and almost 2/3 of his offspring on Horsetelex are in sport with the vast majority showing at 1.50 m or greater. Cambridge also produced the illustrious Catoki, who is still showing in the 1.60 m jumpers and has gained popularity through the success of not only his offspring in the show jumpers (Catch Me If You Can, Contanga III), but also those in the upper level hunters (Small Gesture, Mayfair). Catoki also has more than 2/3 of his offspring in sport with the vast majority showing at 1.50 m or greater – an astounding statistic, to be honest. Lacapo (Landgraf I/Capitano) in an interesting addition, especially for a mare that jumped to 1.60 m – despite his jumping bloodlines, Lacapo founded a dressage dynasty through his son, Flemmingh and his grandson, Krack C. Camelita herself has big, elastic movement with good range through the shoulder in addition to her jumping talents.
This combination will bring the blood and shorter coupling of Toronto to the raw power and scope of Camelita, and the foal should be well suited as a jumper prospect or upper level hunter prospect.

Notoriety MFF

YOB: 2018

Height (est.): 17 hh

Color: Bay

Breed: Dutch Warmblood – KWPN

Breed Approvals: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

Genetic Testing: D-OC Pending

Notoriety MFF (Balou du Rouet x Undeniable MFF (Credence/Cathalido/Calido I, Stamm 776)) is an extremely well built filly. She already shows a powerful shoulder and hindquarter with good proportions and excellent size.

Her sire, Balou du Rouet, graces the 2017 WBFSH Jumping Sires Rankings at #9, as does his sire Baloubet du Rouet at #8! Balou du Rouet is additionally known for producing lovely hunters, and he is in fact #7 on USEF’s 2017 Hunter Sires List. Many stallions of European descent are actually underrepresented in the USEF Sire Rankings, making this accomplishment particularly respectable!
Notoriety’s dam, Undeniable MFF, is a gorgeous, correct young mare. She has two half-siblings that have already shown success in the Green Hunters to 3’3”, and she looks primed to follow in their footsteps. Videos of these two girls can be found on Ulrike’s page under “Progeny”. Both mares are Stamm 776 mares, the Holstein mareline that is, well, notorious for producing capable and willing performers. More on this Stamm line is listed below, but suffice it to say its list of accolades is long indeed!

Notoriety is built powerfully enough it is likely she could do well in the jumpers; equally so, she moves well enough to be a top-level hunter. This makes her an intriguing cross for either discipline, not to mention for the possibilities of her future career!

warmblood broodmare

Nickolaus MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: Filly

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 16.2 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative

 

Nickolaus MFF is a well put together cross between Toronto (Now or Never M/Belisar/Saros) and Taboo (Amour), who jumped to 1.35 m. What is particularly nice about this cross is that it doubles up on both the warmblood contributors to Toronto and Taboo’s successes (Gotthard, Alme), and the Thoroughbred blood that added the spice to make it work. Essentially, we were looking to duplicate the successes of sire and dam in this foal. So far, he is extremely well built – a powerful topline and very correct build.

Sire Toronto needs no introduction, representing the extremely successful combination of Now or Never M and Belisar that can also be seen in Valentino, who jumped to 1.40 m, and Vallado (aka Praise) who had a long and successful career in the derby hunters. Toronto also has a half brother out of the same dam that has jumped to 1.35 m, and 9 of his 47 foals listed on Horsetelex are jumping at 1.30 m or more! Dam Taboo, was successful to the 1.35 m jumpers with her junior owner, who brought her along throughout her career! The team surrounding Taboo’s sport success stated it was likely she was capable of even bigger heights! Sire Amour was Reserve Champion at his 100-Day Stallion Testing at only 3 years old with 128 points, second only to a stallion three years his senior. He is reputed to pass on fantastic, amateur friendly dispositions and scope.

This foal will find success as a jumper prospect, with the modern blood necessary to not just perform but win!

Nordic MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: Colt

Color: Grey

Height (est.): 16.2 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative

 

Nordic MFF (Clinton II) Is an intriguing jumper prospect. He is correct in his build, and we look forward to watching him develop!

Clinton II (Carolus/Calypso II) was reserve Holstein Champion 2005, before going on to be a finalist at the Bundeschampionate as a five and six-year-old. In 2005 he became Holsteiner Vice Champion with Thomas Voss, then moved to Sang-Wuk Song, winning the team silver medal at the Asian Games. He has placed in Hamburg, Dusseldorf and Neumunster, also winning as Nations Cup level for Germany. He went to theWorld Cup finals in Gothenburg (13th) with Thomas Voss. Clinton II’s full brother, Clinton I, still ranks #32 on the WBFSH top jumping sires list. Clinton I’s achievements in sports with rider Thomas Voß are outstanding: Two times winner of the Swedish Derby, successful in Qualifications to the World Cup and in its Finals, fourth in German Championships and fourth at the Grand Prix of Aachen, Winner of the Nations Cup. The total amount of his earnings is more than 200,000 Euros. His damline is remarkable, with unnumbered horses jumping to 1.30 m or more, and an astonishing eight siblings out of dam Waage I which jumped to 1.30 m or more — including three which jumped to 1.60 m! “Clinton II—is an impressive Holstein stallion with seemingly unlimited scope, incredible willingness to achieve and a performance-orientated pedigree.” – Paul Schockemöhle. He frequently passes on this scope, and is said to cross quite well with compact, Thoroughbred-type mares. Dam No More Vows is a thoroughbred of just this type, showing great carefulness, intelligence, and desire for the jumps through the jump chute and great willingness to work and rideability undersaddle. She is the sort of mare that can be found analyzing the course with one eye squinted before you even enter the ring.

This combination should combine a scopey powerhouse with carefulness, intelligence, and a strong desire to work. This foal will be a jumper prospect with blood up close. 

Namaste MFF

YOB: 2018

Gender: Filly

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 17 hh

Registry: KWPN (Dutch Warmblood)

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative

 

Namaste MFF is one of the more easy-going foals on the farm. She is well built, already showing substantial size and a powerful build.

Landkoenig (Landadel/Landsknecht/Gotthard) progeny have earned over 1 million dollars in winnings, including the Grand Prix jumpers Lucullus, Landfall, Lipton, and Latinus. One Landkoenig gelding sold at the prestigious PSI Auction for $437,000 and later again for 1.5 million! Landkoenig scored a 9.5 for stadium jumping at his 100 day test with a test index almost equally high in jumping as ridability. Landkoenig who is easy to ride also scored 8’s for character, temperament and willingness to work. In 2009, Landkoenig made the ‘topliste Hanoveraner Hengst’ with a jumping breedvalue of 135, highest of any Hanoverian standing in North America.

Another Royal Pain, is a big bodied, big boned, extremely correct thoroughbred mare. She combines power with rhythm, a gift that translates both into her movements and jump. She also embodies the very definition of boldness, fearless in her nature. Both of these traits have been passed down to her offspring. Her 2016 colt Come Hither MFF has her powerful, rhythmic, and extremely well balanced canter as well as a flat-kneed trot. He has shown both boldness and carefulness through the jump chute. Most of all, he shows great willingness to work and an extremely easy going temperament.

Landkoenig has often matched well with blooded mares, combining an easy temperament and elastic movements with boldness and blood. This foal is predicted to be an amateur friendly hunter prospect.

Class of 2017

Rha'ella MFF

YOB: 2017

Gender: Filly

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 16.1 hh

Registry: Westfalen

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative

Rha’ella is bred Balt’Amour(Balta’Czar/Ariadus/Cheenook)/Cavallo Star(Calimero/Ulft). Rha’ella is extremely correct and typey, with flat-kneed movement and a lovely, feminine presence. Hunters are in the future for this girl! She is registered and branded Westfalen, and passed her yearling OCD check with flying colors!

Balt’Amour traces his lineage to three prepotent producers of hunters – Alla Czar, Balta’Czar, and Ariadus. The offspring of Ariadus (Acord II/Latus II) tend to have big, elastic movement without sacrificing scope, as he has 13 offspring jumping at 1.30 m or more. Alla Czar was a hunter legend, stamping his offspring with his particular grace and style over a hunter course and with gorgeous, sweeping movement. Balta’Czar combines Alla Czar with the Holsteiner C-line through a mare that has produced four approved stallions to date. He is known improver sire, particularly improving toplines and rideability on a variety of mares.
Dam Chimera’s riding career was cut short by a kick to the hock at 2 years old, but she exhibits correct conformation, good movement, and an excellent work ethic. Her sire Cavallo Star prepotently passes on his powerful topline and movement.

Class of 2016

Come Hither MFF

YOB: 2016

Gender: Colt

Color: Bay

Height (est.): 17.3 hh

Registry: ISR/Oldenburg

DNA Testing: WFFS Negative

“Loki” has this incredibly willing, easy going nature that I have never seen in a horse of his age. He also inherited his dam’s boldness and curiosity, making him a fun youngster to have around the barn. He is correctly built with substantial bone and should top out around 17.2 or 17.3 hh. He has a powerful topline, well balanced canter with beautiful rhythm, and a lovely flat-kneed trot.
He is bred by Holsteiner stallion Cedar (Capitol Hill(Caletto I/Capitano)/Merano/Welt As) out of Another Royal Pain, a big bodied, powerful Thoroughbred mare. Cedar has jumped successfully to 1.40 m and has lovely, big movement. He also enjoyed a brief stint with a junior rider in the equitation!

Given Loki’s type and disposition, he is an amateur friendly hunter prospect that moves well enough to get a piece of the hack.
