Pedigree: 1st Dam, Dona Marzia was crowned state premium mare in 1999 due to her excellent movements and scope. At the age of 5 she went into sports and has made a name for herself up to the S *** class. Dona has over 70 placements in the 1,50m class, including 6 wins. Her earning amounts to over EUR 20.000,-. Because of her own achievements in sport as well as in breeding through her very successful son Cantalupi L, a Rhineland gelding by Cordino, Dona Marzia was awarded the title "Elite Mare" by the Hanoverian Association in 2015.

The pedigree of Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve shows the gathering of the best European show jumping stallions. All stallions from the dam line have proven themselves at an international level, which Tangelo continued in an impressive manner under Roelof Bril at the age of 8. Both Tangelo's sire Narcos II, who is one of the best French sires, and dam's sire Laudanum xx, have earned themselves as hallmark stallions for the best jumping blood genes, which has been secured in the dam line for four generations by the stallion legends Ramiro, Almé and Gotthard. His excellent bascule, his perfect leg technique and caution on the jump made Tangelo an exceptional athlete in his generation. Tangelo has more than 25 licensed sons and a large number of offspring who are successful on an international level. The best-known offspring are Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z, who has already earned more than 1 million euros in life winnings under Daniel Deusser, and Dary Lou, who is attracting attention worldwide under the American Beezie Madden.
