26.09.13  Indigo Zangersheide approved

During the World Championships for Young Horses and the Belgian Championship the annual stallion approval was also held on the grounds of Stoeterij Zangersheide in Lanaken. Together with Stal Bosteels we presented our five year old Indigo van de Lindehoeve (Cicero Z x Heartbreaker). On Saturday morning he was the first to enter the ring for the saddle test. The very beautiful sorrel showed that besides his looks he also has a lot of power, elasticity and a reactive frontleg. He was rewarded with the approval for Studbook Zangersheide. Like that he became the third Z approved son of our Cicero next to Jaguar van Paemel and Cameron Z. Indigo is, like Jaguar, available at Stal Bosteels.

16.01.13  Elita wins VSN Trofee!

Two weeks ago the final of the VSN Trophy was held in the Netherlands, more specific in Lunteren. This trophy for three year old horses is known to be an opportunity to see some young, promising horses. This year the first place went to Elita, a daughter of Cicero Z van Paemel by the Holsteiner mare Calita (v.Cardino). 'Elita is a striking mare who immediately draws attention to her with her blood appearance and outstanding color.  She is now in property of breeder Tony van Santen and Faan Pompen. "She is only three months under the saddle and when you see how quickly she takes it in, that's great. A bloody horse that's super willing to cooperate." said Christel van der Schans, who presented the mare. "She is extremely careful and gives a very good feeling. You never know of course, but I think she can become a very good showjumping horse." Elita received a 9 for print and scope and a 8,7 for her good gallop. She jumps quickly from the ground and seems very careful and has much 'go'.' (J. van Tartwijk, De Paardenkrant, 9/01/2013). Pieter Kersten and Wout Jan van der Schans judged the showjumpers, who were ridden by Wout Jan van der Schans in the final. Pieter Kersten: "Elita is a blood horse to see with a very good gallop, light-footed with a lot of space in the movements but not always easy in the bridle. She has very good reflexes and opens very well on the jump. Has a lot of scope, accelerates good to the front and is a very modern sport horse. With Wout Jan the bridle became better and Wout Jan got a very good feeling on the mare." She began the final with a total score of 42.3 and Kersten and Van der Schans added a 9.5 which made a score of 51,8 at the end. (NRR voor KWPN,
