Must be Gentle (s. Gaillard de la Pomme)



Are you looking for an interesting pregnant broodmare? Have a look at Zanella.

This rock-hard Elite, IBOP spr. ,Sports-spr. and PROK approved mare has produced 9 offspring to date and is in foal to Must be Gentle (s. Gaillard de la Pomme) for 2024. Zanella can be bought together with her filly Tina de Veste V (s. Must be Gentle).

Zanella was successful at 1.30m. level in show jumping and passed her KWPN IBOP performance test with a beautiful total of 81 points. She scored 3 times the figure 8 for her reflexes, technique and talent as a jumping horse, 2 times the figure 8.5 for her ability and attitude and a 9 for her rideability and workability. To date she has produced two 1.10m and one 1.20m. jumping horse and is the she produced the international 1.40m. show jumping horse Dapper V (by Canturano) - Alaa Waziry (EGY).

Mother is the Keur, Performance mare Marieska (by Hamlet). She is a real maker of  show jumping horses. She brought no fewer than 6 horses that jumped 1.40 m or higher. Her son Rancorrado (by Gran Corrado) jumped very successfully at 1.60m level and was a participant in the European Championship in Windsor with his Irish rider Cian O'Connor.

Sheraton is a very interestingly bred son of Indoctro. Calypso II, Grannus and Gotthard belong to the best sires of Germany and have sired many approved sons and international sporthorses. We find these stallions repeated in many international sport horses and proven stallions like Chasseur, Contender, Top Gun and Graf Grannus. In addition to that bloodline, we also find the thoroughbreds Shogun xx and Steinpilz xx, who provide the necessary blood and hardness.

The Dam of Sheraton, Ginella, is ‘Staatspremie’ and has an excellent dam report with only positive remarks. They call her ‘the convincing one with the striking exterior.’ She excelled in the Test for Mares and received a 10 for jumping and several 9’s for other components.


Sheraton jumped at international level with rider Suzanne Tepper. They were 3rd in the VHO trophee and placed 3rd in the 1.35m final in Zuidbroek and booked good results in foreign countries: 2nd, 5th and 8th in Melsomvik, 5th in Vestfold, 7th in Salzburg, 8th in Melsomvik. Earlier Sheraton jumped at 1.50m level and competed in Sweden successfully with Niklas Arvidsson, placing 2nd in the Grand Prix Boras, 1st 1.40m Boras, 2nd 1.40m Kungsbacka and 1st 1.40m Halmstad.


His first offspring where performinging well and appeared to be very promising. They have begun competing at international shows now: Woklahoma won the Zuidbroek Grand Prix, a 1.50m class in Bremen and a 1.40m class in Strazeele. Winde R.A.G. placed 3rd in the Wolden Grand Prix, 5th in the Grand Prix Roosendaal and was in 2010 7th in the finals for the World Championship of 7 year old jumpers and 6th at the National Championship.

Whistler won in Roggel and became Reserve Champion in 2009 at the National Championships for 6 year old jumpers. Zorro placed 4th in the ‘Eastern League Finals’ of the 6 year old jumpers in America. Weraton competes at international 1.40m level, Zevenaar and Zantilla did well in Young Jumper classes.

Lovely Boy was the reserve-Champion in Sweden at the Free jumping Championship of the 3 year olds.

Daughter Windependence VDL was Champion at the Central Show in Groningen and 5th at the National Mareshow in Ermelo. She was also selected for the National Free Jumping Championship. Zorlande earned 83 points and Zanella 81 points for her IBOP. Adinia clinched a high score for free jumping at the mare show, 85 points for reflexes and 90 points for her scope.
