VDL Windsor H (Indoctro x Ahorn)

VDL Windsor H is an elegant, modern warmblood stallion sired by the Holsteiner stallion Indoctro, out of the keur preferent KWPN mare Fanieta, whose sire is Olympic Ahorn. 

VDL Windsor H is the maternal brother of VDL Ulando H and grand prix jumper VDL Viper H.

Windsor's sire, Indoctro, is a son of the Holsteiner legend, Capitol, who produced many of the world's top jumpers. Indoctro himself has earned a world-wide reputation, producing many grand prix jumpers including Jill Henselwood's Black Ice, who competed in both the Nations Cup and the million dollar CN International at Spruce Meadows.
