About Carrera VDL

Carrera is a striking and interestingly bred horse from a combination of two Olympic stallions. Sire Cardento won three Silver medals under Peter Eriksson at the Olympics, the World Championship and the European Championship. In breeding Cardento is a producer of international jumping offspring with no less than six children competing at the World Equestrian Games. Grand sire Baloubet du Rouet was Olympic Champion with Rodrigo Pessoa, a three-time winner of World Cup Finals and also claimed the winner’s sash in several GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers. He is famous also as the sire of VDL Bubalu, Palloubet d’Halong and Chaman among others.

Continuing in the line is Nurzeus, a stallion that sired many good jumpers such as Midnight Madness, Zippo, Ennio etc. Carrera’s dam is an international 1.45m jumper, and is a half-sister to the famous international jumper stallion Tinka’s Boy, winner of many GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers plus the final with Markus Fuchs. Tinka’s Boy has sired many top jumpers like Tinka’s Serenade who jumped at the Olympics in London and was winner of the final of the Rolex Top 10 in Paris.

About Libero H

The Holsteiner stallion Libero H (Landgraf I) is one of the most influential stallions of the last decennia both in sport and in breeding. With Jos Lansink, Libero H won a very impressive series of World Cup competitions and Grand Prix, highlight being the victory in the 1994 World Cup finals at 's-Hertogenbosch. His fighter's mentality combined with his technique and incomparable reflexes made this stallion almost impossible to beat that season. In 1989, Libero H was also approved by the KWPN. With less than 600 offspring the number of international showjumping horses by him is truly remarkable.
