Her sire "Amoureux" has consistently won young horse qualifiers with scores of 78-80% having qualified for Badmington Young Dressage Horse Of The Future, Sheerwater Potential International Dressage Horse, the Sheetwater British National Young Dressage Horse both as a five and six year old under International Grand Prix Dressage Rider Michel Assouline, with a Double win at Sheepgate Premiere League in the Hickstead Young Horse Qualifier and Medium SOQ75 and a finalist in the Sheerwater 6YO Championship. The duo also qualified for the Regional Championships placing ninth in the most difficult of the medium tests M75 with just a years training under saddle and with very little competition experience.

Saros Van T'Gestelhof

Sired by the Belgian approved dual purpose stallion Saros Van 'T Gestelhof, a son of G Ramiro Z out of a Pik Koenig x Wendekries mare, Saros sired the Belgium champion foal 2003 and currently has an exterior index of 188 earning him elite status at the young age of seven. He had obtained over 50 victories from the age of 4 – 7 with 17 wins at Prix st Georges, placing 4th at the World Championships in Verden in the six year old class. Other wins include the Belgian 4, 5 and six year old Dressage Champion title. Saros' progeny are equally as talented in jumping as they are in dressage. Saros's sire is the famous G Ramiro Z who competed in classes of 2.20m and perhaps most renown as sire of the famous Olympic gold medallist Ratina Z out of the famous Holstein mare Heureka Z. This combination of German bloodlines has consistently proven to be a winning combination.

Erle (Pik Koenig x Wendkreis)

Saros's dam, "Erle", carries "elite" status, claiming the National Champion mare titles in 1983 1984 & 1985 and mother to a number of dressage horses, "Le Primo" who won several victories ZII LRV with Louis Van Gestel and the Bronze medal Belgian Championship with Leen Cools. "Pancho" - Belgian vice champion 4 year old ridden by Els Michiels, Bronze medal Swiss championship, Rianta, with several victories Z2 LRV with Wilfried Mondelaers & "Ultra", an elite mare. Erle also proved herself in competition with successful results up to S level.

Pik Koenig /Pik As / Wendekreis

Erle's sire Pik Koenig a top hereditary transmitter of show-jumpers, some of whose progeny managed to jump into the higher spheres of dressage, sired 19 Approved sons including Pik Bube I II & III, 242 main studbook mares, 22 State Premium mares with a sports index overall of 129, dressage 126, jumping 131. Pik Konigs' Thoroughbred sire "Pik As" (1949) was most renown for his ability as a sire passing on his beautiful movement and great jumping ability. He Stood at Celle 1953-1969 a genetic transmitter with a lot of potential he sired world class showjumpers & 4 approved sons, in 1981 ranked #13 as German sire of competition horses. Erle's dam sire "Wendekreis" adds once again the combination of both jumping and dressage genes to an already illustrious pedigree.

Krack C x Flemmingh

Krack C has no less than nine licensed sons with the KWPN studbook, two in Germany and one with the NRPS. Krack C is thought by many to be maybe the best dressage horse progenitor in Europe. He is the Ambassador of both The Netherlands Dressage Sport and The Netherlands Dressage Horse Breeding. Alongside his results in breeding he has a great amount of sporting success himself ridden by Anky van Grunsven. Known for his flamboyant moving mechanism and his ridability, Krack C impressed many KWPN breeders and became their main choice, placing him in the top ten of most used breeding stallions.


Born in 1987 in Germany. Bred by H.C. Albertsen from Behrendorf, Germany, the bay stallion was by the Holsteiner Lacapo out of Texas (Carneval x Lorenz). As a 3-year old he went to Holland for the licensing and became one of the best performers at the 1990 KWPN Stallion Performance Test, especially excelling in show jumping. Flemmingh became a top producer of successful international sport horses. Alongside Anky van Grunsven's Grand Prix horse Krack C, Edward Gal's former medal winning horse Lingh and the current Pan American gold medallist Regent (under American Christopher Hickey) were sired by Flemmingh.

San Remo

Her sire, the Hanoverian stallion San Remo was licensed in Verden, Germany, in 2001 by the Hanoverian studbook and gained premium status. He was auctioned for DM145.000 and approved by the KWPN in 2002. He commenced his dressage career with Edward Gal. In 2003, as a 4-yr-old in the finals of the PAVO Cup, he finished in fifth place. San Remo was much admired for the suppleness and harmony of his paces and his expressive presence in the arena which also earned him his second place at the PAVO Cup Championships in 2004 earning his place at Verden.

Wolkentanz I

In 1993 San remo's sire, Wolkentanz I, was Siegerhengst (Champion Stallion) of the Hanoverian Verband completing a very good Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf with a score of 140.53 points for the dressage elements. Wolkentanz I is one of the top progenitors in Hanover and amongst many others he sired the World Champion of the Young Horses, "Wakajama" of Holga Finke.


San Remo's paternal grand sire, Weltmeyer, was champion of his licensing in Verden. The judging committee gave him the top score of 10 for his trot, his canter stride was great, earning a score of 9.5, the walk was ground-covering and earned an 8.0. In addition, he received a 9.5 for conformation and overall impression. Weltmeyer went on to win his performance test at Adelheidsdorf with a dressage score of 143.94, but just as impressively he gained a jumping score of 141.44. Weltmeyer comes from the most successful dressage families in the world, the ‘W’ line that begins with Woermann who was the sire of "World Cup" (I to IIII) and Wenzel I and II. In turn, World Cup is the sire of not only Weltmeyer but also Walt Disney and Warkant. His dam, the Head Stud Book Premium mare "Anka" was a daughter of the part bred Trakehner Absatz which we also find in the dam line of Laurie I and II.


San Remo's grand sire, Volturno, is a son of the legendary thoroughbred Vollkorn xx. His Oldenburg son, Volturno, (out of a mare by the Thoroughbred, Manolette) was Champion of his licensing and went on to be a member of the German Silver Medal winning Eventing Team at the 1976 and 1980 Olympic Games. Volturno won over 20 international events before retiring to Stud where he produced a number of licensed sons, including Voltur, Voltaire, Volturnus and Valeur.

Her dam "Nanda", is a Ster mare by "Jacardo" (Zeolite x G Ramiro Z), Jacardo was placed in the top ten of the PAVO Cup (Netherlands' prestigious Dutch Young Horse Championships) as a four and five year old out of 350 horses in the division. He went on to win the Stallion Competition Class M two years in a row in 1996 and 1997 and competed successfully at Grand Prix in 2004 with average scores of 65%, consistently scoring 8's on his piaffe, passage and tempi changes. His sire, Elcaro, approved by the KWPN in 1989, obtained good scores as a potential dressage horse but also showing aptitude as a potential jumper, with 8.5 for his trot and a 9 for his temperament and stable manners.

Maternal Damline

Abisag's breeder Gerardus Schievink has kindly provided us with a little more insight into her family line. Her Grand Dam Gracia (Aktueel x Makelaar) was awarded Prestatie status having produced a good number of successful dressage horses competing at Z level and above in dressage, including the International Dressage horses Sadrach (Stefano) by Gribaldi who competes at Grand Prix and the Prix St Georges Dressage gelding "Titus" by Welt Hit II ridden by Rhonda Dretel in the USA. Sadrach's younger full brother Zabad is currently competing at Z Level dressage. Others include the Ster mare Marje by Havidoff and Obed full sister to Abisag's Dam, Nanda.


Jacardo Placed in Top Ten of the Pavo Cup as a 4 and 5 year old, 1st place in the NHS/KWPN Stallion Competition Class M in 1996 and 1997. He competed successfully at Z2 +13 in dressage prior to export to North America in 2001. Short listed for the Canadian Dressage Team.. Reserve champion in the FEI division and went on to compete at Intermediaire 1. He has sired a good number of advanced dressage horses with trainable temperaments.
