Sire Cohinoor VDL jumps successfully with James Billington and unites top sires Cornet Obolensky and Stakkato. In breeding, Cohinoor VDL seems to be very promising and already produced several stallions who have been selected for the KWPN Performance Test; two of Cohinoor’s sons have been approved by the KWPN: Loretto VDL and Nickelson VDL.
Grandsire Harley VDL stands out in breeding for numerous offspring at Grand Prix-level and therefore he earned the predicate ‘Preferent’. With Calvados and Libero H a strong foundation is laid for the pedigree of Nickelson VDL.
Dam Hakilly D Z was awarded ‘Keur’ and scored 79 points in her IBOP test, including 8’s for reflexes, canter, technique and mindset. In breeding she already produced the DSP-approved champion stallion Martini VDL. The damline of Nickelson VDL produced several international showjumpers, such as Chippendale’s Boy DZ (Sloane Coles), Zidane D (Marcel Ewen), Tornado R (Ludo Philippaerts), Turbo R (Jos Lansink), Caspar (Koen Vereecke) and Zargo Z (Emile Hendrix).
KWPN Breeding Designation
Nickelson VDL convinced the KWPN Stallion Selection Committee with his light-footed, balanced canter, extra reflexes and remarkably good technique. For these features he scored respectively an 8 and twice an 8.5; also his rideability, mindset and talent were rewarded with an 8. With the rising sire Cohinoor VDL and the proven Harley VDL in his pedigree the talented Nickelson VDL is an interesting young stallion for breeding.
