    Breeder of World Class   
 *****     Royal Dutch Sport Horse    *****


FLOWER   By Nabab de Reve out of the important 1.50m jumper mare Harmonie KEUR ELITE SPORT PREFERENT EPTM and PRESTATIE by Calvados Keur.    Flower is the last filly of Harmonie and we had the great opportunity to her when she became available. 

Her bloodline  is strong.  In her last 3 generations there are one National  and  8 International jumpers.   Acclaimed dam line in Holland, they are full of predicates, Approved Stallions, Champion  in the EPTM performance test,  successful  in the show ring and leading the breeding value of jumpers  which entitled them to the coveted title of  Dam line of the year in 2012.  

Born in 2010 Flower  iis a KWPN registered  mare standing    16.3 hands . She was imported as a weanling to solidify our  breeding program. 


Nabab de  rêve  is a monument in the breeding sport and equestrian sport. 

 Nabab  was second in the Belgian 4 year old championships, and two years later, a finalist in the 6 year old class. In 2001 he was a Nations Cup winner at Aachen, 2nd in La Baule and 4th in Rome. Under Philippe Lejeune, Nabab competed at the European Championships in Arnhem and in the bronze medal winning Belgian team at the WEG at Jerez.

His son Bacardi vant Lambroeck was licensed by the BWP in 2004. Winsome v d Plataan won the 6 year old World title with David Jobertie in 2005. His heir has already been nominated  Vigo d'Arsouille out of a mare by Fleuri du Manoir. This stallion has been licensed by both the BWP and the sBs, and ridden like his sire  by Philippe Lejeune has represented his nation. The pair competed for Belgium at the 2007 European Championships, after placing second in the CSIO 5* at Gijon. Vigo d'Arsouille was declared Belgian Horse of the Year 2008, following a win in the Belgian Championships and a 5th at Aachen. He was recently approved KWPN . Two other progeny of Nabab de Reve were nominated for the title: Valentina van't Heike and Walnut de Muze. 

Nabab de Reve not only delivered outstanding sportive results  with his rider Philippe Lejeune but had also a big impact on breeding. In 2002 he was named horse of the year, in 2010 the title  BWP ambassador followed. The very same year his offspring Vigo d’Arsouilles jumped to gold at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky with Philippe Lejeune and also won team bronze. Nabab de Reve won the same medal in 2002 in Jerez de la Frontera.


Harmonie (Calvados/ Voltaire) lead  the jumpers breeding value in Holland for broodmares with offspring in sport for at least 13 years in a row until she died with a fabulous index of 185 in 2010.  This mare line is superior and is making the top list in the breeding value all categories.

Their dam Electra was on the 13th position (BV162).  For the breeding value of younger mares with no offspring in sport, four of them in the top 20 are closely related to Harmonie and Prelude's dam, Electra. Harmonie has received all the KWPN predicates a mare can have; Elite, Sport, Preferent and Prestatie. This is possibly the best performance jumper mare line currently available here in America being second in the world for having 4 generations  in a row with mares jumping succesfully at 1.35 m or more. Harmonie has three and Prelude one offspring in this listing.

Harmonie was successful as an  International jumper and is considered as one of the best offspring of the Keur stallion  Calvados.  She has produced performance offspring on a non-stop basis; among siblings of Flower there is the recently KWPN approved stallion  Dutch Design, a Star mare, an Approved SBS ZZ level (4'5'') sport stallion, an Elite Sport Preferent International jumper, an Elite Sport ZZ level mare, and a 7 years old Z mare (4'3'') with a EPTM score of 87 and  who's 2007 offspring stallion Comme Il faut has been  approved in  the Zangersheide studbook. 

In 2011 Dutch Design by Dollard de la Pierre, was Reserve Champion with one points behind the Champion of the performance test with a score of 82.5 points. He had a nine for his scope, 8.5 for canter, 7.5 reflexes, 8 technique, 8 attitude and rideability and 8.5 for his overall jumping talent. Dutch Design is considered an asset by the jury with his very good canter and superior power and gave him a projected breeding index of 160. And to continue her legacy one of her daughter Apropos n'Liefhebber has her first son Extra Power just being accepted to the second round for the 2012 stallion show. This daughter had a EPTM of 82.5 with a 9 for reflexes and 8.5 for scope.

Harmonie is obviously an exceptional mare out of an outstanding mare line. Her close relatives are loaded with talents, predicates, approved stallions and performance results so the best genetics is simply spread in this family which give the best chances to produce high quality horses on a most reliable basis.

Harmonie's dam, Electra  is a Preferent Sport Prestatie mare from the Keur preferent stallion Voltaire. She competed at National level and retired to produce outstanding sport horses and broodmares. Her dam the Ster Sport  Uranda by Le Mexico was an international jumper. Electra is  ranked 13th in the breeding value for mares with offspring in sport (BV 162). Beside  Harrmonie, Electra produced two Approved AES stallions, one that competed successfully at Z level , one Keur Sport National jumper mare, one Elite Preferent prestatie Sport International jumper mare  and two Elite mares. 


Electra' sire, Voltaire needs no introduction. He is the result of crossing two outstanding bloodlines: Furioso II and Gotthard. Furioso II produced 200 state premium mares and at least 70 approved stallions of which several are standing at stud in other continents. Furioso II had a tremendous influence on the breeding industry worldwide.  His full brother is the French stallion Mexico. His son Le Mexico is very familiar in Dutch breeding and frequently appears in the pedigrees of successful show jumpers such in Electra's dam line.  Furioso II also sired the Olympic gold medal winners Lutteur B and Pomone B.

 Voltaire's dam, Gogo Moeve, was the dam to such horses as Fandango R, PS Falkan and Petite Fleur. She was sired by the great Gotthard, a stallion who has made his mark in the Hanoverian breed. Gotthard is seen in the pedigree of such horses as Goldika, Goya, Queensway, Genius, Grundstein and Grannus. Gogo Moeve's dam-sire was the Thoroughbred stallion More Magic, who also sired the 1980 Moscow Olympics dressage gold medalist, Mon Cherie, ridden by Elisabeth Theurer.

The dam's sire Gotthard is almost a legend in German sports horse breeding. Gotthard's strength is continued in his sons and grandsons. Vital in Voltaire's pedigree is the connection in the third generation to the thoroughbreds More Magic xx on one side and on the other side Furioso xx.

As an 8 year old Voltaire jumped 1.50 m. courses with a great deal of success. He showed his strength in international jumping in 1988 in Calgary, Stockholm, Lanaken, Helsinki, Wiesbaden and Wembley and in 1989 he brought his show jumping career to a successful ending by winning the Grand Prix of Berlin with Jos Lansink and 2nd in the Grand Prix of Leeuwarden. Voltaire was the sire with the most offspring at the Olympic Games of Atlanta in 1996. Voltaire has over 50 approved sons. Many of his offspring jump at Grand Prix level, i.e. Kannan, Finesse, Altaire, Kahlua, Play it Again, Helios, Electro, Especial etc. etc. Foltaire, ridden by Günther Seidel is a famous offspring of Voltaire in the international dressage ring. Voltaire has been awarded ?Huntersire of the Year 2001, 2002 and 2003? in the USA.

It is exceptionnaly  rare to find a mare with such record, not only from her own sport career but also from her foal's production.  The mare is one important part of the equation and we felt fortunate  to own one of her daughter.   Now retired we have kept two of her daughters.


 2014 CAPONE I,  16.3 hands KWPN STER 

Jefferson Bloom  was a First Premium colt and earned the Ster Predicate at his studbook inspection.   In the free jumping competition , the  GES Cup he finished in top five in North America. 

Jefferson has always been a more active individual with some spunk.   He needs to be kept busy but is respectful to his human.  He was sold and is in now in Connecticut where he is being trained but hasn't start showing yet.   We can't wait for him to start his competitive career. 

2015 CAPONE I, 17 hands  KWKPN-NA

 Koraiada Bloom wanted to jump at a very young age and got herself into trouble more than once because of that.   

Kora had the best brain ever and the kindest temperament on earth.   In the spring of her 4 years old she started her training and in the summer she was ready to start to compete.  She was wonderful  and showed  lots of po

 However it's with great sorrow that we  lost her on a stupid pasture accident. We tried to save her but it was not possible without leaving her with constant pain for the rest of her life.  

Rest in peace my beloved sweet dear Kora, under your low profile personality was hiding a wonderful soul We miss you and will always  love you.  



Le Diamant Bloom was First Premium at his inspection.  He is developing into an elegant but powerful colt. This cross seems to produce powerhouse as the two we had with Flower are full of muscle and  strong yet gentle.   He has the same temperament as Kora with a nice low key personality  that seems to get along with everyone.  He is still a stallion because he can, he is no trouble and keep his place. Hasn't been started yet because the  owners want to give him plenty of time to develop since he is so big.    


My Pleasure   is a also a soft low key individual.  But he was sure not born like this. In fact he was one of the worse kicking and biting new born  we ever had in this farm.  It took almost 3 weeks to get him  to how we want our foals to become,  gentle and people oriented.  Now it's hard to imagine he has ever been a monster.  Funny as a dear friend of mine wanted to call him Monster Bloom but there was no way he could bear that name because I do believe  names have an influential power over their characters.  And this one proved me right again.  This Monster became a real pleasure to handle.  In fact he is the easier by far of the 3 colts we had that year and kept stallions up to 2 years and a half. And he was the only one that could have kept his balls because of his easy going nature even as a stallion.


2018 CASALL ASK , KWPN-NA reg filly.
Norma Jean is a star in the making, First Premium,  TOP TEN in North America.   We named her  after Marilyn Monroe for her  beauty, charisma and power of attraction.  There is no way you can get your eyes off her even at the usual awkward yearling stage as shown in this picture.   

A sport horse in her soul  she will be a tremendous  addition to our breeding program and if not sold our plan is the send her  in sport after she gave us a filly.

I am personally in love with this filly. 


2019 DIAMANT DE SEMILLY, Oliver Bloom is a total powerhouse.  He is strong and confident and moves places.   This cross has produced an amazing numbers of Grand Prix horses.  According to horsetelex there is 12 crosses Diamant /Nabab born before 2010;  one stayed as a broodmare, one 1.10m, two 1.45m, four 1.50m and two 1.60m.  This means that he has 50% of this cross succeed to the 1.50-1.60m.  Which is spectacular considering and way above what any super stallions produce.
