KWPN Ster mare Abisag Chiquita Ster mare Swiss Warmblood Mare Quinine Zandarinn Ster mare by Scandic

Zabdarinn Zandarinn bred by A Veenstra was imported from Holland in November 2006. She is an elegant modern framed KWPN mare by the Scandinavian bred dressage stallion "Watermill Scandic".

In 2008 Zandarinn was awarded Ster status with the Scottish Sports Horse surprisingly not based purely on the quality of her paces as one would expect being a daughter of the international Dressage Stallion "Scandic" but on the basis of her exceptional jumping talent. Her top score of 87.5% was awarded for technique and suitability as a show jumper.

Zandarinn has produced two palomino fillies by McJonnas, the frst premium filly "Dzandarinna" and her full sister "Solaris Ezanndra" retained as a future broodmare to carry on the strength of her mare line in our breeding program. Her 2010 coloured colt foal by "Solaris Buenno" was sold to the Czech Republic along with his dam.

Watermill Scandic was approved by the KWPN and Zandarinn is very much the image of her sire. Her damline is from a line of proven breeding stock that have consistently produced successful sport horses and have been highly rewarded with stud book predicates.

Zandarinns dam, Lactharinn by No Ski (Nininsky x Nijinsky xx), holds the Keur predicate. Cietherin by Ulft holds the Keur Preferent predicate, Victharin by the TB stallion Apple King xx and Itharin are both prestatie mares.

A good number of upper level sport horses descend from the merrielijn 171 including the approved stallion Sauvage Diamant, "Vedet" by OOseven ridden by Cynthia Pronk, the International Grand Prix Dressage horse Bon Aparte by Sultan, the Grand Prix Showjumper Ultimo by Goodtimes, Pytharr, Ethar, Hatharin and Zithar are all advanced dressage horses.

Watermill Scandic

Zandarinns sire, the KWPN-approved stallion Scandic currently holds 3rd position in the individual WBFSH dressage horse rankings 2011. He boasts novel lineage for a dressage horse with ancestors such Castro Calypso I, Landgraf I and Michelangelo grand sire of Laura Bechtolsheimer's Mistral Hojris. Both Scandic's sire, Solos Carex, and his dams sire, Amiral, represented their countries in dressage at the Olympics. Scandic's great-granddam, Eljenohve, is also the dam of Billy Twomey’s top show jumper, Luidam.

After Scandic won the KWPN stallion competition two years in a row then achieved numerous victories at ZZ-light level and excelled at ZZ-advanced level, his new Swedish rider Patrik Kittel began competing him in the Small Tour in 2008. The combination's first show was in Münster, in January 2008, where they immediately placed second in the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I. At the KWPN Stallion Show in Den Bosch, Scandic and Kittel were a sensation. Their success continued in Zwolle where Scandic was awarded the title International Stallion Show Promising Stallion.

In May of that year, Scandic made his Grand Prix debut in Mannheim. In 2009, his impressive performance continued with, among others, wins in Falsterbo and Lingen. Scandic has performed consistently, finishing fifth in the World Cup final in Den Bosch and placing second twice in the World Cup qualifier in Göteborg. In the Grand Prix Freestyle at the FEI European Dressage Championships 2011 in Rotterdam, Scandic claimed the Bronze medal with a score of 83.429. In 2012 Scandic represented Sweden at the London 2012 Olympic Games placing 14th under Patrick Kittel. The winner of the Sheerwater & Hickstead Six Year Old Dressage Championship, ridden by Rebecca Hughes, "Classic Annette Ballerina" is a daughter of Scandic out of a Jazz x Vincent mare. APPEL D'AMOUR is fast approaching Prix St Georges at the age of seven and he also has one International Eventing son An Angel Instead.
