NIKITA VF is the next big thing! Her pedigree is flooded with high-performance horses. Her father jumped to 1.60m and her mother to 1.45m. She is a stunning typey mare with a winner’s heart. Correct in her conformation, elastic movement, quick reflexes, shape, and scope through the jump chute. This mare has an exciting sport career ahead of her and her bloodlines would make a great addition to any breeding program.

He started his show career winning the Five-Year-Old Western Canadian Young Horse Championship. As a young head-turner. In 2014 he quickly entered the 1.50m level with Olympic.

Dam: BINI- BALOU is an Imported Oldenberg mare who before starting her breeding career had a very successful sports career. Jumping to 1.45m and winning circuit champion in the high amateurs at HITS thermal.
