We are saddened to announce the passing of the mare Henrica. What an special mare.
We had to take the difficult decision to put our mare Henrica to sleep at the age of 29 years
Henrica (Haaram) is keur, preferent, prestatie, sport (spr) by Aram x Veritas x Irco Polo. She was bought as a yearling by Jan Haarman from Wesepe and is now the ancestor of the show jumping horses of Stal Beltmanshoeve in Wilp. During her IBOP she already scored a nine for the jumping. She jumped at 1.35m level under the name Haaram ridden by Stephan Haarman. Despite her size, she always jumped like a tiger, she had a heart like a lion. We admired her beauty, her fantastic character and her willingness to work and these characteristics she passed on to her descendants.
Henrica is the dam to the Olympic show jumper Rivaal (Monaco). She brought several offspring who perform at a higher level. She will live on through her offspring. We will continue our breeding program with Henrica’s daughters Zwinging Alpha (s. Fighting Alpha) and Naomie (s. Legaat) and her granddaughters Ginja (s.Verdi) and Keep for Ever (s. Ephebe for Ever). Zwinging Alpha and Naomie both jumped 1.35m level with Stephan Haarman and are a half-sister to the Olympic show jumping horse Rivaal.
We are pleased that we could give this special, valuable mare good latter days. We will never forget her and the successes she has brought us.
May she rest in peace.
