AES stallion approval Schijndel: Diego Maradonna champion!

Thirty stallions have been Registered, Licensed or Approved by the AES Studbook on the main stallion approval in Schijndel on Monday April, 13. The athletic chestnut Diego Maradonna 111 Z (Der Senaat 111 x Action Breaker) was chosen champion. He was presented by De Roshoeve, but owned by the breeders Harrie Theeuwes and Peter Van Santvoort. His full brother De Flor 111 Z was one of the champions during the winter stallion competition in Belgium. Elected as reserve champion was Mosito vh Hellehof (Elvis ter Putte x Nabab de Rêve) of Joris De Brabander. Also the nice modelled stallion Horado V (Eldorado vd Zeshoek x Chellano Z) of Team Nijhof was one of the three decorated three-year-olds. Three jumpers were fully approved after a nice presentation under the saddle. First of all Citizen Kan EBH (Canturo), owned by breeder Frank Kok, turned out to be the most impressive. Also the grey four-year-old Goedhart (Quasimodo vd Molendreef x Clinton) impressed and got Approved. The Untouchable son Diesel was approved, because he proved to be very competitive. Of six dressage stallions, two were Approved: Giano (Lord of Loxley x Sandro Hit) of Björn van Kessel and de Ijzeren Man, and Fribourg W (Lord of Loxley x Ferro) of Johan Lokhorst. The Licensed dressage stallions were Berreaux (Bordeaux x Ferro) of W-Stables from Wuustwezel and Sacandro (Sarkozy x Fürst Heinrich) of De Dinkel Hoeve. Also two pony stallions have been Licensed: Quidam’s Drum vh Juxschot (Eternity vd N. Ranch x Kantje’s Armando) and Merlijn vd Bisschop (Flipper d’Elle x Nabab de Rêve). This last pony was bred as a horse, out of the damline that has produced Cella (Ben Maher).
