Homebred chestnut tobiano Dutch warmblood mare by our coloured

of international show jumpers, Contender, Nimmerdor and Grand
Veneur. In addition the combination of the bloodlines Pericles
xx and Nimmerdor are found in the damline of the legendary

career. She is nonetheless the most valuable addition to our
