Grand Prix mare Endy BH & PSG mare Dendy

The 11-year-old De Niro daughter Endy BH immediately catches the eye in the sporthorse collection. Recently, this top mare out of KWPN National Champion Andy made her debut at Grand Prix level. “It is a pleasure to work with Endy BH; everyday she is enthusiastic and diligent. She is really talented for piaffe, passage and the tempi changes. She excels in these movements for the higher level”, says Endy BH’s rider Marianne van der Vorm.

Another superstar in the collection is Dendy – a Jazz daughter out of the legendary Ulft mare Endy. Dendy is currently performing at Prix St. Georges level ridden by Marianne van der Vorm. “Dendy has a lot of talent, also for the highest level. Dendy has a very pleasant, good character and is a superb sporthorse. She is certainly suitable for a very ambitious competition rider. ”

Future talents

In addition to experienced competition horses, the collection of the Black Horses Auction also includes talents for the future. For example, check out the 7-year-old Impact BH, a gelding by Apache x Jazz. “Really a horse for the future with a lot of talent for the higher level movements,” says Black Horses Stud manager Carlo van Kaathoven.

Another talent out of this first part of the collection is the 4-year-old Le Zorro BH. This stallion is sired by Johnson son Hero and was bred out of the mare Brendy – the full sister of Grand Prix stallion Charmeur.

The best dressage lines

At Black Horses Stud, the best dressage lines are used for breeding.
