The strength of bloodlines - from grandfather to grandson



Indoctro (Capitol x Caletto II)

Indoctro, a son of the famous Holsteiner stallion Capitol, not only passes on his exceptional jumping talent and excellent form, but also confers upon his descendants his good conformation and uncomplicated willingness to perform

Dexter (VDL Windsor H x Voltaire)
Dexter, a son of VDL Windsor H, is no exception.  His quiet demeanor, desire to please and exceptional rideability are typical characteristics of VDL Windsor H offspring. Dexter is shown above at 5 years of age in his debut in the 1.0 m jumper ring at Caledon Equestrian Park.

Concorde's Tiantha in foal to VDL Windsor H



Tiantha with Vivian Millard at Caledon Equestrian Park
Great news!!! Tiantha (Concorde x Celano x Notaris) has been confirmed in foal to VDL Windsor H.  Pedigree experts will notice the linebreeding back to Capitol (through Indoctro in Windsor's sireline and Celano in Tiantha's damline).  Our 2012 foal Harley (see below) is actually the son of Concorde Tiantha's daughter, Angelina, and will be the "nephew" of this new foal.

Tiantha is a KWPN registered studbook mare who, at the KWPN-NA mare inspection, received the highest jumping score in all of North America for that inspection year. At the age of 3 she won the Freejumping Competition of Eastern Canada, and at the age of 6 placed in the top 10 at 1.35m in the Jumper Development national finals.  Over the past years Tiantha has been at the centre of our showjumpers, competing up to 1.50m with rider Vivian Millard.  She is currently retired at Gimcrack Equestrian Centre.

Tiantha shows fabulous technique over jumps, is exceedingly careful, and is very quick off the ground.
