Gorgeous filly by Kroongraaf. Dam Highland Contessa.
Name: HVL Kroona
This filly is Tessa’s first foal and she has the best temperament ever!
Kroongraaf is a son of the ‘preferent’-awarded Holstein stallion Burggraaf (Landgraf I x Cor de la Bryère) who jumped at international level himself under Roelof Bril. In showjumper horse breeding worldwide Burggraaf is considered one of the most successful sires. Notably, his products S’Blieft under Leslie Howard and Burggravin under Roelof Bril won a series of Grand Prix and World Cup qualifiers. Kroongraaf also inherited his jumping genes from his dam Rianne. This famous Amor daughter is a full sister of the international showjumping horse Optiebeurs Surprise with which Rob Ehrens was very successful. Rianne can be considered as one of the best Dutch dams ever. In combination with four different stallions she produced no less than three international showjumping horses and two licensed stallions. Her most successful product in the sport is the showjumping horse Belladonna (Kibrahim), which under Katie Prudent Monahan has been doing excellently for many years. But also Topsy (Le Mexico) under Ulrich Kirchhoff and Febroko (Le Mexico) under Liewe Koopmans have done very well at international level. Besides Kroongraaf, Rianne produced the licensed stallion Candy Surprise (Candyboy), which jumped at national level under Jenny Zoer. From his first breeding years Kroongraaf produced several remarkable jumpers as well as a referred stallion.
