The year 2014 was very special for Team Nijhof. Not only two of our stallions competed at the worldcup finals in Lyon, but also two stallions achieved medals at the World Equestrian Games in Caen 2014: Johnson won the bronze team medal with Hans Peter Minderhoud and Verdi won the gold team medal with Maikel van der Vleuten!!!
At this moment Team Nijhof has a great number of stallions that have participated at Grand Prix level such as Clinton, Canabis Z, Eldorado van de Zeshoek, Johnson, Lord Z, Marius Claudius, Quality Time, Spartacus, Verdi, Tadmus and Zacharov. But there is also frozen semen available from the Grand Prix jumpers Calvados, Concorde and Voltaire, Larino, Manhattan and Warrant.
At the beginning of the year Florencio was awarded with the ‘keur predicate’ and Johnsons son Handsome was the overall champion of the kwpn stallion selection in Den Bosch.
In 2014 we had two performance test winners: Latour (v. Darco) was the overall champion of the BWP stallion show and Grandorado TN (v. Eldorado) won the performance test of kwpn in the autumn.
For 2015 we have invested in a couple of top class new stallions such as El Clarmio (v. Clarimo), and the youngsters Malibu Z (v. Mr. Blue) and Maestro vd Bisschop (v. Cornet Obolensky). All three stallions with top genes and genetic varity.
As you can see in the top ten of the world breeding ranking it takes grand prix stallions to breed grand prix horses. Therefore we find it enormously important that the stallions prove themselves in the sport. With our own stallions, they must also show their worth, whatever genes they possess themselves can also be passed on to their offspring. Everything is hereditary, especially their performance in the ring! In our 2015 brochure you can find information on the performances of our stallions on national and international level and their offspring.
In 2015 we will keep you updated on the performances of our stallions and their offspring via our website, facebook site and youtube channel. We wish you a succesfull breeding season in 2015 and you are always welcome to ask us breeding advice for your mares!
Team Nijhof and Family Nijhof.
