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. 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.
More than half of La Belle van Sombeke's offspring are or were successful in sport, four of them even at the international 1.60m level. One of them Ta Belle van Sombeke, who won countless grand and national prizes under Jos Lansink. Ta Belles Glock's London (Gerco Schröder, NLD), Taran de la Pomme (m. Karline de Brabander, BEL), Golden Hawk (m. Shane Breen, IRL) and A Pikachu de Muze (m. Billy Twomey, IRL ) are four sons who were both licensed sires and world-class jumper on highest international level. Daughter Beauty-Belle van’t Roosakker (by Nabab de Reve) shows the same breeding qualities. Your children and grandchildren almost all end up on the big stage without exception. Mumbai (by Diamant de Semilly x Nabab de Reve x Chin Chin), who already took part in the Olympic Games in Tokyo with his rider Christian Kukuk at the age of nine and finished fourth in the individual ranking at the European Championships in Riesenbeck, deserves special mention.
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 succeeded at 1.60m level. Later paired with Diamant de Semilly there was Ratina Kervec, the mother of our Jingle Star von der Mittelerde. Schon während ihrer Sportkariere, die auch bis auf 1,60m Niveau ging, wurde Ratina Kervec zur Zucht eingesetzt. Die Traumanpaarung mit Quick Star zeigt bereits beachtliche Ergebnisse. Der 2012 geborene Vollbruder von Jingle Star, Cuick Star Kervec, behauptet sich bereits unter seinem Reiter Shane Breen und Jack Ryan (beide IRL) in internationalen 1,60m Parcours. Die 2011 geborene Tochter Babelle Kervec (v. Quabrice Bois Margot) ist ebenfalls auf 1,45m Level erfolgreich und hat ihrerseits Nachkommen, die auch schon mit dem Sport begonnen haben.
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).
