Olympia RV Z
Ogano Sitte x Diamond Blue RV/Mr. Blue
2018 Chestnut Zangersheide Mare
Olympia RV Z aka Peanut was born June 6, 2018 in the Netherlands. She is chestnut and stands at 16.1 hands. She is registered Zangersheide. Peanut will be inspected with the American Hanoverian Society in the Fall of 2022.
We purchased Peanut as a four-year-old though an auction after being very impressed off a free jumping video of her. She ended up being the highest selling young horse within the auction. Along with the video, she is backed by an impressive pedigree and so we jumped at the opportunity to add these lines to our breeding program. We also have high hopes for her jumping career and look forward to her joining our performance team. Olympia's dam and granddam produced several competitive offspring between the two of them. The oldest offspring of Olympia's dam are currently competing at 1.20m+ and the oldest of her granddam have competed at 1.30m and 1.60m respectively.
We were able to get an embryo from Peanut by Jac'Potes for 2023. This cross should produce a competitive offspring with an amazing pedigree!
Ogano Sitte is a proven producer that passes on his superior balance and quality to his progeny. Many of his offspring have achieved top accomplishments in sport and he has been described as a jumper-building machine. Ogano Sitte suits mares with nice heads and with this he brings everything else to his offspring: his blood, good locomotion, and an innate instinct over the jumps with quick movement of the front legs with amazing scope and power. His offspring are easy to handle, ride and train. Ogano Sitte is of the Darco bloodline--a European bloodline that has produced numerous champions for generations. His dam Ialta Sitte is herself an international winner with 71 places and victories. His grand dam Insel Sitte is also the dam of stallions Ksar Sitte (the best sire of showjumpers in Italy in 2009) and Cordano Sitte who was sold by Jos Lansink to the King of Morroco. His great granddam Gute Sitte won the Bronze medal in the Olympic games of Montreal in 1976 under the saddle of Eric Wauters and was also awarded with the title of best showjumper in the world that year. Ogano Sitte was named the best sire of four and five-year-old showjumpers in Belgium in 2007 and 2008. In 2009, he was the best stallion of the SBS stud book for the six and seven-year-old showjumpers. Ogano Sitte has already produced over 14 approved sons and many outstanding young performance sport horses.
As a foal, Mr Blue caught the eye of Philip Wagelaar who each year acquires a couple of colts to prepare for stallion selection. When Mr. Blue was five, Bert Romp started riding him and bought a 50% share in the horse. When he was six, the breeder, Sjors Burg, bought a share in him from Romp, and soon the horse was making his mark as an international jumper. The pair were second at the 1997 European Championships in Mannheim, and second again the next year at the World Cup Final in Helsinki. In 1997, the KWPN approved Mr. Blue as a stallion, and in 1998, Burg and Romp sold him to the United States, where he again competed with distinction, first with young rider, Elisa Hass, then with Katie Monahan-Prudent, and later with her husband, Henri Prudent. With Bert Romp in 1996, Mr. Blue was 2nd in the Grand Prix of Zuidlaren, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Geesteren and Eindhoven, and the pair were second in the Nations Cup in Rotterdam. In 1997, they were first at the Grand Prix of Berlin, Hachenburg, first in the Nations Cup at Aachen and won the Masters at Stuttgart. In 1998, they won the GPW at Paris Bercy. With Elisa Haas, he won the Amsterdam Grand Prix in 1999, and in 2002, carried Katie Monahan-Prudent to victory in the Nations Cup of Rome. Mr Blue’s daughters have shone in the Dutch mare inspections. Thirty seven have been accepted into the Studbook, and more than half of them boast a conformation predicate: eight ster mares, six provisional keur mares, three keur mares and two elite mares. Twenty two of his daughters have earned the sport predicate and 13 the PROK predicate.
Calvados was bred from the topmost French performance bloodlines. His sire, Uriel, has been leading sire in France for many years (index 211/highest in France). Uriel has left 26 sons to the French stud, and brought forth more than 100 international caliber horses. Calvados’ dam, Goldrose (index 186) became at age three, Conformation Champion of France. She was part of the French team from ’72 till ’81 and won Grand Prix such as Paris and Madrid, was second in Grand Prix of Lisbon, Barcelona and Hamburg. Her prize money amounted to 621,000 French francs. In addition, Gold Rose produced two sons, that became approved stallion, Turban Rose in Sweden and Sable Rose in Holland. Gold Rose was sired by the great showjumper producer Ibrahim, who has 36 approved sons in France, including the legendary Alme. The granddam of Calvados, Jolie Rosie, had six offspring performing in international contests : All Rose, Dall Rose, Gold Rose, Calline V, Irmino & Joly Jumper. Calvados as a four year old won the National Stallion Competition. In 1992 Calvados as an eight year old claimed seventh place in the Dutch Championship. The next year he was Reserve Champion of the Netherlands and won the Grand Prix of Tjele in Damark, third in the Grand Prix Drammen, fifth Grand Prix Fal-sterbro, second Grand Prix Spangenberg, fourth Grand Prix Geesteren and winner of the stallion competition at ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
