|Be Helena||Chin Chin|
Freeman is very well bred with Emilion-son VDL Emmerton as his sire, who was Dutch Champion jumping in 2008 with Jur Vrieling. Maternal grand sire is the two time Olympic stallion Chin Chin and then we find the ‘Preferent’ sire Ahorn.
Freeman’s dam is the ‘Keur’ mare Be Helena VDL who, as a 3-year old, placed 4th at the National Mare Show scoring 80 points for her IBOP. Her full sister is the Dutch Free Jumping Champion Welena VDL - the mother of the Grand Prix show jumper Celena VDL. Freeman’s grand dam is the famous Ahorn-daughter Helena - European Champion in 1992. Helena carries the predicates ‘Keur, Preferent and Prestatie’ from her children Southwind VDL (Grand Prix show jumper) and of the international jumpers Pan Am VDL and Onatello VDL. Great grandmother is the ‘Preferent and Prestatie’ mare Azemieka, who is known as one of the best Dutch broodmares ever. Among her offspring are the international jumping and approved stallions Everest, Glennridge and Arkansas as well as the international jumpers Lely, North Gammon and Jezetro.
As a 3-year old Freeman was Champion of the KWPN Stallion Show in 2013. He impressed with his beautiful confirmation, great pedigree and his jumping skills. In the stalli-oncompetition Freeman met all expectations. He received special notes for a great can-ter, jumping with scope, a good take-off and use of his body. With Jur Vrieling he won the KWPN Stallion Competitions in Roosendaal and Zuidbroek and placed 5th in Ermelo Freeman’s average, there-fore, clearly put him as the overall Champion for this series for the stallions. As a 5-year old Freeman again wowed with clear rounds throughout the KWPN Stallion Competition. As a 6-year old he made his international debut under Jur Vrieling in Leszno with three clear rounds and three placings: two 5th‘s and one 6th. At the CSI Wierden Freeman put in three more clear rounds. In the KWPN Stallion Competitions he won in Ermelo and placed 3rd in Zuidbroek. Again, jumping clear in Kronenberg and in the final round at ’s Hertogenbosch Freeman secured the Reserve Champion necksash.
From his first crop of foals, Freeman immediately produced several Champions: Lord-Freeman placed 6th in the final of the Dutch Foal Championship and was Reserve Champion at the CK Groningen. Ponka A was Champion at the BWP mare Championship. In 2015, Kasander was Champion of Friesland, Kaprisha L was Champion of Groningen and finished 7th in the final of the Dutch Foal Championships. In the Championship of Friesland, Kennanminka finished 3rd.
The combination of the Sina and Azemieka line in his pedigree, together with his handsome exterior, his gaits and his convincing way of jumping gives Freeman great promise for the future.
Freeman: a dignified Champion
