ORLANDO (Bwp) x Tempranillo (Wpn) x Manhattan (Wpn)
Consigned by: Klondike Victory Farm
MEERKAT is a modern type with correct conformation who was bred for the upper levels of show jumping and with her fantastic athletic ability and great temperament, she looks like she will be a top-level jumper. She has been well worked with and will be nicely under saddle by sale date. She has plenty of blood for the top of the sport, she is quick and careful through the chute, has a fantastic canter, and shows unlimited scope with great technique. This mare is going to be a winner just like her half-sister. Meer Kat has been raised in a herd environment being allowed to grow up naturally with her peers.
Sire: ORLANDO competed up to 1.60m with Dirk Demeersman and has been named a BWP ambassador because of his and his offspring’s success in the ring. As a testament to his great ride-ability and temperament, he was sold to a young rider later in his career and carried on at the FEI level for many years with her. He has remained high on the showjumping index with both the Dutch and Belgium studbooks and has sired many FEI level horses. Calypso is ridden by Nick Dello Joio, Ohlala ridden by Lauren Hough, Boomerang ridden by Ben Maher.
Dam: BEYA CAT was inspected premium by the CSH and competed up to the young horse jumpers before becoming a broodmare. She has been an absolutely incredible producer for KVF, her oldest Hooz Da Kat has stepped into the 1.40m at just 7 years old and looks to have everything it takes to be a top GP contender. Beya’s offspring are modern types with plenty of blood, they are very brave yet extremely careful and have exceptional technique and scope. Every one of her offspring looks to have upper-level potential and Meer Kat is no exception.
