After Cape Coral RBF Z and Vaderland were delivered to the KWPN centre last Monday, they were able to leave Ermelo today as KWPN-approved stallions.

At the KWPN Stallion Show, both stallions were selected for the five-day character assessment after their offspring were reviewed and both stallions performed at the level required in sports.

International offspring
Fifteen-year-old Cape Coral RBF Z (Cornet Obolensky out of Gerona PP by Argentinus, breeders Marcel and Maryelle Coenen from Roggel) has proven himself under Pieter Keunen at the international 1.50m level and has been successful in breeding for several years. His oldest offspring are eight years old, and so far, 16 mares have been presented to the KWPN inspections, all of which have been declared at least 'ster.' Four sons have already been selected for the performance test, resulting in KWPN approval for No Mercy (dam: Now or Never M) and Opus One JDV (dam: Cardento). A high percentage of his offspring are already competing in international sports, with the eldest performing at 1.40/1.45m level. His offspring also stand out positively in young horse competitions. Cape Coral RBF Z produces well-developed, long-lined offspring. They move with great balance, have light-footed canters, and stand out in jumping with their push-off, body use, and athletic ability. Cape Coral RBF Z himself is an honest, reliable stallion who is easy to handle and displays calm stable behaviour. He is available for breeding at Stal Hendrix in Kessel.

The Small Tour stallion Vaderland (Vitalis out of Vechta star prest by Krack C), bred by Reesink Horses from Eibergen, also completed the five-day assessment. During the KWPN Stallion Show, he was presented by Dinja van Liere, with whom he achieved two victories in his international debut last October. This eight-year-old stallion is a half-brother to the international Grand Prix horse Impressive VDC (sired by Charmeur) owned by Sarah Millis. From his first crop, Vaderland had two sons selected this year, including premium stallion Rome USB. Additionally, some offspring were assessed. They form a uniform collection with well-developed fronts, strong loin muscles, and correctly structured foundations. They walk very well through their bodies, trot lightly, and display a lot of suppleness. Vaderland himself is an honest, reliable stallion who is easy to handle and calm in the stable.
