At the conclusion of the third phase of the BWP stallion approval, 41 showjumping stallions and four dressage stallions are approved. Chacco-Blue, Conthargos, and Pegase van’t Ruytershof were the most represented sires of showjumping stallions, each with two approved sons.

Chacco-Blue, currently second in the WBFSH sire ranking, will be expanded with United vd Heffinck (bred by Van De Heffinck out of Maquinn vd Heffinck, with whom Leonie Peeters performs at 1m50 GP level), and Chacco’s Touch SRK Z, bred by Stable Rombouts-Korompis out of Gwenny van’t Roosakker, the dam of a series of successful international showjumpers, including the five-ster performer Attoucha Hero Z, Tinkoucha Hero (1m55, up to and including 1m60 level), Alana Hero Z (1m50 level) and the GP showjumper Maestro van’t Roosakker (1m45 level).
Two sons of the late Conthargos, ranked 16th in the WBFSH sire ranking, were approved: Veini de Regor and Clark De Will Z. Veini is a great-grandson of the famous Centa de Muze. He was presented by François De Dijcker and the Veldeman family (also Veini’s breeder) and has now been sold to Woodlands.
Clark De Will Z also showed a lot of quality over the fences and belongs to the Holstein lineage 104a, in which a lot of sport is anchored. Caroline Willot bred this stallion out of Calya De Will, a granddaughter of Bravo, who in turn is the dam of the GP stallion Caretano (Jos Lansink) and Contendro I and II. Clark De Will Z was presented by Studfarm Van De Helle.
Following the event, we interviewed Jan Wuytack, Joris De Brabander, Erik De Winter, and Isabel De Rijcker, as well as Wim Schoukens who atypically presented a Thoroughbred stallion.

Erik De Winter

Erik De Winter successfully presented two home-bred Pegase van’t Ruytershof sons, namely United Pélé van het Netehof and Vinnie van het Netehof. Talking about United Pélé’s dam, Erik said: “Questa Dwerse Hagen is by Leandro VG and has produced two descendants by Pegase, namely United Pélé and Victoire van het Netehof. Since I can continue the lineage with Victoire, I sold Questa to a good, regular customer from the Czech Republic, Jaroslav Sima. He is also Questa’s rider and the pair last month participated in four-ster classes in Vejer de la Frontera. Questa is a beautiful dam with a lot of quality and energy. She has a very good mentality and a lot of blood. United Pélé is her first product. Jaroslav Sima is not only a rider, but also a breeder. He expects a full sister or brother to United Pélé this year... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
