Gelder stallion Odin (s.Edmundo) added to KWPN stallion base
The palomino-coloured Odin (s.Edmundo) was the only Gelder stallion to partake in the performance test and he convinced the committee with his performance in dressage, jumping and on terrain.
The stallion selection committee is comprised of chairman Marloes van der Velden, Arie Hamoen and Jan Pen. This morning they approved the three-year-old Odin (Edmundo out of Buonaternel elite IBOP sport-dres pref PROK by Vitens, bred by M.H. Zwaneveld and P.E.M. Herweijer of Assen) of M.J. Bruggen of Varik and T. van Steenis of Geldermalsen. “This is a well-developed stallion with a spacious and active manner of movement. He has shown a very consistent performance and always carries out his work with natural go, displaying a great attitude and eagerness to work. At the outdoor terrain Odin still keeps his focus on the rider”, says Marloes van der Velden. Odin earned a 9,5 for his character and seems a valuable addition to Gelder breeding on multiple levels.
The full report is to be published online later today.
