The NRPS committee accepted three dressage stallions at a home inspection at Perlee Stables. Established by Peter and Marijke Perlee since 1991, Perlee Stables is located on the edge of Maartensdijk village and specializes in the training and selling of dressage horses.
The three horses include three-year-olds V-Pellegrino (Vivaldi - U. Jinola elite x Lord Sinclair I, breeder A.P.E. Goldschmeding), G-Princeton (Glamourdale - Chere Murona ster x Blue Hors Don Schufro, breeder Stal Willig), and Princeton’s four-year-old half-brother, S-Oakin (Secret - Chere Murona x by Blue Hors Don Schufro, breeder Stal Willig).
The still youthful V-Pellegrino is an elegant, appealing stallion which further upgrades himself under saddle. He moves with a lot of looseness in a nice posture, with a nice front leg use. His walk is very appealing. The pedigree is interesting as elite mare U.Jinola herself competed at Inter I with a Russian youth rider and competed for Russia at the Young Rider Championships. Since 2015, she has produced nine offspring, including KWPN-designated son and now NRPS-accepted three-year-old V-Pellegrino. Great-granddam of the stallion Cynodor (Nimmerdor x Amor) is elite, preferent and prestatie and has sired, among others, three Grand Prix dressage horses and a Grand Prix showjumper. The line also produced the KWPN stallions Winchester and Lloyd, and NRPS stallions Nureyev and Hero Blue.
Glamourdale-son G-Princeton is a very appealing stallion with lots of youth and charisma. He has a very beautiful and powerful way of moving with appealing leg techniques. Under saddle he shows sympathy and willingness to work. Striking is his very good uphill canter with lots of switchability... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
