Odette N is a Keur KWPN mare imported from Holland to our farm in 2000. Odette was awarded Ster in Holland and attended the central merriekeuring in Groningen where she finished 3rd in her large class.

In 2003, she successfully completed the IBOP at the Iron Spring Farm Keuring in the USA to receive the Keur predicate. Odette’s high IBOP score earned her a respectable #8 placing in the KWPN-NA prestigious Top-Ten list.

Odette is a stunning mare with outstanding gaits, she is a powerhouse and her extremely supple uphill movements are complemented by the fantastic use of her hind legs. Odette passes her amazing movement on to her foals who all seem to have her talent for dressage.

During the 2008 KWPN keuring tour, Odette’s eldest daughter Zolette P [Prestige x Houston], successfully completed the IBOP with excellent marks for both exterior and gaits to be awarded with Keur predicate by the KWPN jury. At the same keuring, Odette’s 2008 foal Draganette P [Johnson x Houston] received First Premium and was Champion Dressage Foal of her Keuring.

2009 proved to be another successful year for Odette’s offspring when the full blood sibling to Draganette P, Elcho P, followed his sister success receiving First Premium and the special ribbon for Champion Young Dressage Horse at his Keuring.

For 2011, Odette is expecting one of the first Uphill foals to be born in Canada!

Lineage & Progeny:
Sire
Odette N’s sire is the Keur KWPN dressage stallion Houston. Houston is a famous son of Belisar, his dam, Ciola, is half of a living twin and is now 'Preferent'. Ciola’s sire, Pion, is one of the most important pillars of breeding of Dutch dressage horses. Houston was convincing as a dressage horse during his test, he received the following marks: 8 for walk, 8.5 for trot and 8 for canter. Seth Boschman and Annemieke Vincourt-Krom have since showed him successfully on the light tour.

Houston has a positive influence on model and movement. He passes on to his offspring his fantastic way of moving with a superb use of the hind quarters. Of the 166 Houston mares registered into the studbook, 103 of them were awarded the following qualifications; ‘Ster’ (61), ‘Keur’ (29) and ‘Elite’ (13).

Houston passes on to his offspring his fantastic way of moving with a superb use of the hind quarters. On the dressage index he scores 112 points for exterior and even 115 points for movements, with a reliability of 92%. Houston offspring perform well in competitions. In 2006, Houston’s eldest offspring are expected to make their début in the Grand Prix ring.

Houston’s dressage index is currently rated at 164 points with a reliability of 89%. Without doubt Houston belongs to the better progenitors of dressage horses in the KWPN stud book and as proof of this, in early 2006 Houston was awarded the predicate of Keur by the KWPN.

In 2002, Houston furnished two appointed stallions in the KWPN stallion selection in Den Bosch, of which one, Symfonie, was the champion. In 2005, Houston again had a topper! Vincent [Houston - Jazz] was a real eye catcher in Ermelo. Not only was he approved in November 2005 (under the name Valdez) but also he was champion of the selected stallions.

The mare offspring of Houston are also performing very well. Naomie [Houston - Zevenster] made her mark with Valeron (by Sandro Hit) who was the runner-up of the 2005 stallion selection. Valeron was the topper of the KWPN Select Sale and moved to the stables of Zegwaard for €150,000 and was approved by the KWPN in the 2005 Autumn tests.

Mare Line
Odette’s dam, Zilvernette, is a Keur KWPN mare by the prolific ‘Preferent’ stallion G. Ramiro Z who is without question one of the most influential jumper and dressage sires in the world.
G. Ramiro Z was Champion of his stallion test in 1969, was awarded the title of “Horse of the Year” in 1992 and has through the success of this offspring earned the tag of “Euro-Stallion”. He sired the approved sons: Almiro, Bernstein, Dageraad, Damiro, Elmero, and Zeoliet. One of his most famous offspring is the superstar show jumper Ratina Z who won both gold and silver medals at the Barcelona Olympics as well as the Volvo world cup and many grand prix's. Ramiro is also the sire of the 2004 Athens Olympic Medalist Royal Kaliber, and is grandsire to Athens Olympics super stars Montender and Butterfly Flip. Besides these names, there are hundreds more offspring competing and winning all over the world.

Odette’s grand-dam, Nicolette, is by the legendary ‘Preferent’ stallion Marco Polo. The German Trakhener stallion Marco Polo, was brought to Holland in 1964 as an upgrade sire. While not popular at first, it was soon apparent that Marco Polo’s progeny had hereditary jump. The first horse to really announce the arrival of a new jumping sire was the mare, Elzette, who teamed with a 15 year old Franke Sloothaak became Royal Dutch Federation Champion in 1973. The following year, Franke rode Marco Polo to become Champion of the Young Riders. Other successful offspring were: Jonker Arno (Henk Nooren), Polo Boy (Katie Monahan), Vivaldi (Melanie Smith), Pybalia (Phillippe Guerdat’s Olympic mount in 1984 as well as in Seoul), and Marius (Caroline Bradley’s Birmingham Grand Prix winner and 1977 British Show jumper of the Year). Marius went on to sire Milton, perhaps the most famous show jumper in history. Marco Polo was also successful as a broodmare sire; one of his daughters was bred to Voltaire to produce Concorde, and both Hap Hansen’s Dalfsen and Debbie Schaffner’s Den Ham were from Marco Polo daughters.
