KWPN Royal Dutch Sport Horse
We started breeding with two mares by the stallion Pretendent (Le Faquin x Duc de Normandie) who has played a key role in the Dutch breeding of dressage horses. These mares were the ster and preferent mare Votti (reserve champion of the KWPN 3 year old mares) and the keur and preferent mare Vuzelma. Both came from outstanding bloodlines. Because the KWPN had decided to specialise in breeding sporthorses for either dressage or showjumping we used the outstanding dressage stallion Cabochon (by Vincent) and the world-famous stallion G.Ramiro Z (by B.Raimond). Out of the combination of our ster mare Huzelma (Apollonios XX x Vuzelma) and Cabochon came the mare Luzelma Slottie. The keur and sport mare Luzelma Slottie proved to be a top class dressage horse and became Grand Prix dressage with Christa Larmoyeur and was then sold to the American young rider Lara Schleining-Powers.

The ster mare Belzelma (G.Ramiro Z x Vuzelma) was covered by Goodtimes (Nimmerdor x Caletto 1) and this produced the ster and sport mare Kelzelma. This superb mare was sold and became Grand Prix showjumping in Britain. Kelzelma was then sold to Brasil where she remained active in the showjumping arena but now in her twenties she is a breeding mare. Much is expected from her offspring especially from a stallion by Quick Star.
For us as breeders the challenge remains to produce sport horses which have the natural ability and temperament to become Grand Prix dressage or showjumping horses. And yet we have added a new challenge. With the mare Zara Slottie (Roven XX x Gran Corrado) we have entered the eventing arena. In 2011 she became 7th in the CIC** of Breda and had a good performance in the tough world championships for young event horses at Le Lion d’Angers. Her convincing performance with her rider Annemiek Wieken is a promise for future competitions. And it gives us even more reason to make use of the good thoroughbred stallions if they are available.

A pillar of our dressage breeding is the keur preferent mare On Time Slottie (Jazz x Ahorn). This beautiful mare with her fabulous movements appears to be on her way to become a top class breeding mare. As a 3 year old she was selected for the National mare inspection and as a 4 year old she was selected for the finals of the prestigious PAVO cup. Her first foal was by Rousseau and this gelding called Anthony Slottie excels in the dressage arena. With Marjolijn van Daalen he competes at ZZ -level and is one to watch. Daughter Classic Slottie (by Lingh) became voorlopig keur in 2011 and performs at Z-level.

Daunter Slottie at the Stallion Show in 2011
Her half-brother Daunter Slottie (by Uphill) was a real eye catcher at the 2011 KWPN Stallion Show in ‘s Hertogenbosch with his spectacular trot (watch the video). He competes at Z-level. His brother England Slottie also excels in his movements and had a great performance in the finals of the PAVO cup in 2013.
Another pillar of our breeding was the full sister of Luzelma Slottie, Wuzelma Slottie (Cabochon x Apollonios XX). One of her promising offspring is the mare Duzelma Slottie by Westpoint (Jazz x Michelangelo). This horse was sold and was trained by Christa Larmoyeur. The 5 year old mare Fuzelma Slottie by Scandic out of Wuzelma is a lookalike of her father and shows an exceptional quality in her movements. She was sold to Sweden. We expect a lot of her 3 year old son by Charmeur (Florencio x Jazz) and the 2 year old stallion by Apache (UB40 x Krack C). This stallion als shows exceptional movements.
In our breeding of showjumpers the sport mare Ottoline Slottie (Peter Pan x Goodtimes) has a special place. With rider Gert van den Hof she was very successful in the international 1.45 showjumping until we decided to breed again with her.
Her first foal was a mare by Gran Corrado (Grannus x Corrado 1) who brought us Zara Slottie (by Roven XX) and Bluemaid Slottie (by Ovidius) before we sold her.
Her 8 year old daughter, the ster mare Chariot Slottie (by Lucky Boy), has shown a lot of potential in the showjumping arena with rider Herman Koorman. Last year she has brought a filly by El Primero (Numero Uno x Indorado) and this year had a filly again by Etoulon VDL (Toulon x Calvados). Chariot's half sister, the ster mare Diligent Slottie (by Tampa), has a magnificent pedigree and in 2013 she brought us a beautiful filly by the thoroughbred Hopalong Cassidy XX (Strong Statement XX x Glacial XX).
KFPS Royal Dutch Friesian Horse
We started breeding Friesian horses with two top class ster mares called Zelina (Feitse x Naen) and Widuna (Reitse x Tjimme). Both mares performed in the dressage arena at Z-level and now they are used as schooling horses at our equestrian centre and as breeding mares. Zelina brought two ster mares, Celina by Remmelt 323 and Velina by Rindert 406. Her son Kije by Dries 421 became ster at the Stallion Show in January 2014. Out of Celina we had Melina by Gerryt 360 and she also got the ster predicate. Currently we have one mare out of Zelina in training. Elina (by Fabe) is 6 years old and has a fabulous trot. She is an eye catcher in the dressage arena. Her 5 year old halfsister Helina (by Maeije ) performed really well under the saddle and was sold.
Widuna brought three ster mares, Viduna (by Jillis 301), Giduna (by Maiko 373) and Kiduna (by Fabe 348). Her first filly, Riduna, owned by the Van der Meer family, has got the sport predicate.
