Ruby-Ella VDJ

A unique opportunity to purchase a filly from the 2018 KWPN Champion mare of South Holland - The Netherlands!

Ruby-Ella VDJ is a beautifully modeled jumping foal that gallops with power. An opportunity for sport and breeding.

Mother is the Elite, IBOP-jump, D-OC mare Karamella VDJ. She was crowned Champion of South Holland at the KWPN mare inspection. During her IBOP test, she scored an 8 for her talent as a jumping horse and an 8.5 for her attitude. Ruby-Ella VDJ is her 3rd offspring.

Grandmother is the Elite, EPTM-jump, D-OC mare Donatella (s. Quasimodo Z). She scored 79 points in her IBOP test and received an 8 for her talent as a jumping horse and twice an 8.5 for her reflexes and technique. In addition to Karamella VDJ, her son Nickelback VDJ (s. Comthago) became reserve champion of South Holland for jumping foals in 2018 and her son Ippon VDJ (s. Dakar VDL) was champion of South Holland for jumping foals in 2013.

Great-granddam is the Elite, Sport-jump mare Perettie-B (s. Concorde). She competed at 1.30m level. She also produced the 1.30m. show jumper Gotcha (s. Bernini) and the 1.45m. show jumper Urijn P (s. Lux Z).

In the mare line we also find the HSH approved stallion Irco B (s. Mytens xx) who was released at CCI3* level by Gabor Schaller (HUN), the international 1.40m. horse Count on Me (s. Ukato) - Denis Bressanelli (ITA) and the international 1.60m horse Dierette (s. Ultimo) - Karim Elzoghby (EGY).

Sire Landino made an excellent impression at both the KWPN and NRPS Stallion Show jumping with a lot of ease, light-footedness and athletic ability.
Known as one of the best breeding sons of the legendary Stakkato, sire Stakkato Gold has over thirty offspring competing at the international Grand Prix level. His offspring stand out due to their reflexes, technique and ability. Landino ’s grandsire is Cilton, a son of the legendary Calando I, was lightly used in breeding but has produced a number of striking jumping talents. Additionally, the pedigree of Landino consists of the legends Nimmerdor and Ladykiller xx.

Landino also hails for one of the most successful breeding lines of the VDL Stud. Dam Sancara VDL has also produced the international Grand Prix showjumper Aksai Chin VDL ridden by Suzanne Tepper and Jami Jensen. Granddam Zancara is one of the best broodmares in the Netherlands, she has produced no less than five 1.60m showjumpers, including the approved stallions Pessoa VDL, Montreal VDl and most notably the Olympic Silver medallist and World Champion Bubalu VDL ridden by Jur Vrieling. Zancara is also the dam to the approved stallion Great Pleasure and stands as the base of Grandprix jumpers Exxon Hedonist (Jérôme Guery), Cika (Jens van Grunsven), Garrincha Hedoniste (Wilm Vermeir), Brooke van de Zuuthoeve (Richie Moloney), Tristan Horta Z (Virginie Thonon), Dakar VDL (Tina Di Landri & Shawn Casady) and Sherlock CCDK (José Thiry). Numerous Grand Prix showjumpers and approved stallions are also out of the famous Holsteiner line 474a, including Verdi TN (Maikel van der Vleuten), Claire Z (Pieter Devos), Vingino (Abdel Saïd) and N-Aldato (Emile Hendrix).


Invited to for the KWPN performance test, Landino earned his breeding license at the NRPS. Like most Stakkato Gold offspring, Landino is a modern showjumper with the reflexes to be competitive and the ability to succeed at the highest level.
