La Belle van Sombeke
The story of the Dam line of La Belle van Sombeke reads like a fairy tale. A fairy tale that is based in particular on the genetic roots of her father's side. Her father Goliath Z by Graf Gotthard, a breeding product from the century mare Heureka, who is also the grandmother of the no less famous Ratina Z (m. Ludger Beerbaum), gave this line everything that made the descendants of La Belle van Sombeke so extraordinary Has. Almost all offspring have proven themselves in sport and are equally impressive due to their constant hereditary power well beyond the fourth generation.
From movement, strength and good reflexes to scope and rideability, this dam line has everything that makes a top sport horse. Offspring from this line are known for their gentleness in handling, but with enormous jumping potential and the will to win when it counts - an ideal mixture for the ambitious sport or leisure rider.
Über die Hälfte der Nachkommen von La Belle van Sombeke selbst sind oder waren im Sport erfolgreich, davon vier sogar auf internationalem 1,60m Niveau. Eine von ihnen Ta Belle van Sombeke, die unter Jos Lansink unzählige Große- und Nationenpreise gewann. Züchterisch hat Ta Belle mit Glock’s London (Gerco Schröder, NLD), Taran de la Pomme (m. Karline de Brabander, BEL), Golden Hawk (m. Shane Breen, IRL) sowie A Pikachu de Muze (m. Billy Twomey, IRL), sogar vier gekörte Söhne gebracht, die auf Weltniveau unterwegs waren. Die gleichen züchterischen Qualitäten zeigt Tochter Beauty-Belle van’t Roosakker (Nabab de Reve). Ihre Kinder und Kindeskinder landen fast alle ausnahmslos auf der ganz großen Bühne, so z.B. Urenkel Mumbai (v. Diamant de Semilly) und Opium JW van de Moerhoeve (v. Kannan) aus der Ischgl de Muze von Nabab de Reve, einer Enkelin von Beauty-Belle.
The consistency of pairing with the best stallions in the world shows how successful Belgian show jumping breeding works, which focuses on proven performance. This makes the La Belle van Sombeke dam line a guarantor for a successful sports career.
The mating with Kannan brought the daughter Ba Belle (also Ba Belle vant’t Roosakker), who also started successfully at 1.60m level. Later paired with Diamant de Semilly came Ratina Kervec, the mother of our Jingle Star von der Mittelerde. Ratina Kervec, who also went up to 1.60m level, has already been used for breeding during her sports career. The dream pairing with Quick Star shows remarkable results. By example full brother of Jingle Star, Cuick Star Kervec, who was born in 2012, is already asserting himself in age-appropriate 1.40m courses under his rider Shane Breen (IRL). Daughter Babelle Kervec (by Quabrice Bois Margot), born in 2011, is successful in 1.40m level and has offspring who have already started in sport.
Other well-known offspring from this dam line include Wabelle de Muze (w. Damien Haeltermann, BEL), Oak Grove's Heartfelt (m. Harm Lahde, DEU), Quabelle (w. Blythe Karolyi, USA), Casimir de la Pomme (w. Alexandros Fourlis, GRC), Arac du Seigneur Z (with Angelique Rüsen and Christian Ahlmann, both DEU), Taran de la Pomme (with Karline de Brabander, BEL), Walkure van Sombeke (with Wilm Vermeir, BEL), and VDL Groep Eureka (with Maikel van der Vleuten, NLD).
