More on her dam: Bonita LVP Z

Bonita LVP Z, who is by the exceptional ” Eurocommerce Berlin” out of a Lord mare, was purchased from LVP Stables in Belgium. Her dam is bred out of line 890, which is one of the best Holsteiner jumping lines.

Bonita was placed 11th out of 107 contestants at the 2006 “Championship for Fillies” at Studbook Zangersheide. Her dam’s sire is Lord and via Farnese, Landgraf I and Consul she goes back on to Mirte who is the foundation dam of this very strong performance line.

Her sire Eurocommerce Berlin consists of the best Holstein showjumping lineages combined with a powerful damline. Sire Cassini I (by Capitol I) caused sensation in the international show-jumping sport under Franke Sloothaak. And in breeding Cassini I has been at least as successful with a series of offspring active in the international sport such as; Ingmar, Coco, Cumano, Carino and Olympic. Remarkable is also the fact that Berlin’s dam Estia (by Caretino) has been successful at the highest level of showjumping under her sporting name Cathleen W, ridden by Marc Wirths. This mare definitely did not get her jumping genes by accident. Her grand-dam Ostia (by Freeman xx) became world-famous under the name of Frimella. Ridden by respectively Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst and Willi Melliger this noble mare cantered many laps of honor. After her sports-career Frimella produced, among others, the international show-jumping horse Lorina II (by Lombard).

The family of Berlin, Holstein lineage 890, is one of the most successful sport lineages in Holsteiner breeding. Other reputable members of this family are for instance the famous Grand Prix show-jumpers; Feodora, Crocodile Dandy, Corinessa, Quebec, Tinkas Lad and Caitano.
