2nd Dam Sire
Carinosa Z, Born in 2000, 16.2hh, Bay KWPN Mare by Carthago out of Jarinosa KWPN (Nimmerdor/Jason/Irco Polo).
Grade A International Show Jumper competed successfully in Ireland before being sold to the Netherlands.
Sire: Carthago, (Capitol I - Calando I - Mambo)
Carthago Z has got a breeding index in jumping of 160, which ranks him sixth of the jumping sires. Carthago‘s career under Jos Lansink at the Zangersheide Stud was extraordinary. Beside several placings and victories in International top jumping classes he was taking part in the Olympics twice: Atlanta 1996 (11th in the individual competition) and Sidney 2000. He won the team bronze medal with the Dutch equipe at the European Jumping Championships 1999 in Hickstead, and 2000 he was runner-up in the Grand Prix of Aachen.
DamSire: Nimmerdor, Preferent (Farn - Koridon xx - Senator)
This legendary bay stallion was out of the Dutch WB ster mare Ramona, which featured thoroughbred on her sire’s side (Koridon) and Dutch warmblood (grandsire Senator) on the dam’s side. Nimmerdor’s sire was the Holstein stallion Farn, an old-fashioned type, and when he was graded it was hoped he would improve upon the Dutch breed by siring good brood mare daughters. This he clearly did, but only when he was given lighter mares did it became evident that he was also capable of producing excellent show jumpers amongst his offspring. Farn, and therefore Nimmerdor, traced his ancestry to Achil – founder of the Holstein breed.
When Nimmerdor was performance tested, he clearly excelled at jumping and so began his steady progression onto the world of International Showjumping. Ridden by Albert Vroom, he successfully competed in many World Cups and International Competitions, and he was accordingly invited to the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. Feeling however that the stallion needed to concentrate upon breeding duties, Wiepke declined the invitation. Wiepke certainly knew what he was doing, for Nimmerdor’s progeny have since proven themselves many times the world over.
Nimmerdor also produced over sixty International showjumpers including well-known names such as VDL Everest, Broere Goldenridge, Agrovorm’s Maywood, San Patrignano Avenir and Canadian Colours. Undoubtedly, Nimmerdor is one of the best show-jumper sires of the world.
