Last week we shared several notable achievements of former jumper foals sold at KWPN Online Foal Auctions. However, the results in the dressage arena do not go unnoticed either. Several horses are currently successful at the higher levels.

Two of these horses are Machiavelli (s.Eye Catcher) and Malta (s.George Clooney). Both compete at Z1-level and display great potential for more. The latter is active with rider and dressage instructor Rozemarijn Groenenboom. 

Returning buyer

Six years ago, Groenenboom purchased the colt Malta (George Clooney x Dimaggio). “Malto caught my eye thanks to his beautiful conformation and rhythm. He has grown into a beautiful dressage horse and he shows a lot of talent for the dressage movements.” However, Malta is not the only horse Groenenboom bought at the KWPN Online Foal Auctions. The story of six-year-old Mandela (s.Everdale) starts here as well. Both geldings were born in the stables of M. Streppel in Lemelerveld and the online auction offered Groenenboom the opportunity to acquire the two appealing foals. “The KWPN Online Foal Auction platform featured great videos and provided us with transparent information such as the vet report. It was also possible to contact the breeder and view the foals with our own eyes”, explains Rozemarijn.

Bright future

Both horses are currently active at Z1 level dressage and showcase potential for more. “We take our time and are now preparing them for their Z2 debut in the winter. We are confident that both horses will cruise through these levels. They are performing well in the dressage tests and demonstrate to possess a good temperament. So, we are looking forward to a bright future with these two talented sport horses.”
