Thanks to Marga Sanderse (Tsahal Arabians) and photographer Reindert Jansen, we show you some pictures from the 2007 Dutch National Show that we have been writing about few days ago. Besides some champions and the full brother to Enzo – Amalfi (that was considered to be leased to Poland) we show also his daughter – BB Jhadore (Amalfi – FA Jada). Bred by Double B Arabians BB Jhadore is the granddaughter of Padrons Psyche on both sides! In the gallery there is also dapple grey Papillon (Neman – Kajuscha by Kilimanjaro). Bred in Germany by Silvia Garde-Ehlert, Papillon is ¾ brother to famous Nadir I who was the successful sire of two 2007 Dutch champions. Papillon himself is also an experienced show horse (among others – class winner and reserve champion of regional show in Exloo 2007, winner of the shows in Cavalli Cinisi 2006 and placed 2. at international show in Citta di Castello 2006). Papillon was also very brave endurance horse that finished successfully all of his 50 starts! He was placed ex. 18. at CEI** in S. Panataleo (120 km) and 11. at CEI ** in Orvieto, 120 km.
The beautiful object of Reindert Jansen’s photos was also the great grandson of Balaton – MM Sultan (Kubay Khan – Alaska QQ by Vatican), bred by M. Huismann. MM Sultan is famous as triple Dutch National Champion in 2003 (when he became also Top 5 All Nations Cup), 2004 and 2005, and in 2006 he was Reserve Dutch Champion. This year he was second in his class. Both stallions mentioned – Papillon and MM Sultan are being owned by Arabian Fantasie, the Netherlands.
Another famous „sportsman” – grey stallion Lobeke (Fiolek – Eleskirt by Testigo) bred in Spain by Marquesa de Laula and owned by well known trainer Jan Calis is pictured by Reindert under the saddle. The stallion was not only a halter show star (Top 5 Elite Stallion World Championships 2005, Liberty Champion LowLand Cup 2006, Dutch National Champion Ermelo 2006, Life Aid Cup Ermelo 2006 winner), but also very well known dressage and showjumping competitor.
