Fam. Barenkamp, Ter Apel
NRPS, aangewezen KWPN
At the age of three, Karaldo VDL already obtained the title as champion of the NRPS and vice-champion of the KWPN. An impressive record for this highly talented son of Harley VDL. Through his ‘Preferent’ awarded sire Harley VDL Karaldo combines the valuable genes of Heartbreaker and Carthago. Ridden by Jessica Kürten, Harley VDL jumped at international Grand Prix-level and in breeding he stands out even more. Harley VDL produced Grand Prix showjumpers like Arlando (Roelof Bril), Constable II (Laura Kraut), Camelot (Kevin Beerse), Charly Chaplin S (Darragh Kenny) and Doloris (Santiago Lambre); in addition Harley VDL sires the two-time world champioin HH Earley, nowadays ridden by Charlotte Bettendorf, and Dutch champion for 7-year-old showjumpers Davidson, who jumps at Grand Prix level with Callan Solem nowadays.
Grandsire Chin Chin is undoubtedly one of the most influential sires of the past decades, and especially on the dam’s side the influence of the two-time Olympic stallion is enormous. Daughters such as Qerly Chin, Usha van ‘t Roosakker and Ta Belle van Sombeke stood at the basis of a countless number of international showjumpers. Great-grandsire Polydox brings in the valuable genes of Polydor and has also been very influential, especially on the dam’s side.
Karaldo VDL was bred out of the ‘Preferent’ awarded mare Waldine, who already produced the 1.40m showjumper Di Vadine. In addition, Waldine is the half-sister of the Grand Prix showjumper Seraldo (Clara Lindner) and out of this direct damline successful show jumpers like Woody (Katharina Offel), the KWPN stallion Faldo and the KWPN stallion Graziano were bred as well.
Karaldo VDL himself stands out for his strong model with a wonderful stallion expression and a powerful canter. He shows plenty of ability and a great way of jumping.
