Babella-S (Elite, EPTM (spr)) - Verdi x Candillo x Corrado x Freeman XX - Babella is a 16h 2009 KWPN mare from Holsteiner stamm 890. Babella is exquisite; she's absolutely beautiful, has superb conformation and the most sensible temperament.  Babella has a high percentage of blood and a modern pedigree that caters towards making top showjumpers.  

Babella with her Mylord Carthago filly in the Netherlands:

Babella earned her Keur predicate in the Netherlands for the quality of her conformation; she then passed the EPTM (a performance test for show jumping) and earned her PROK predicate for the quality of her radiographs. Once this was achieved, she was awarded the Elite predicate; this is the highest predicate a mare can obtain in the area of conformation and health. Per the KWPN, a mare with this predicate is part of an exclusive group of very full-quality mares.  


Babella had two foals in the Netherlands before being imported in 2015 in foal to Quasimodo V/D Molendreef.  

Babella is a very interesting mare to have in the US.  While it is easy to recognize her top quality, her super modern type, Verdi as her sire and proven motherline make her an asset to American breeding.  

Damline and pedigree:

Babella's dam, Romantika-S, started her broodmare career in Holstein, Germany. She went into sport at the age of nine and the results have been outstanding; 4 short years later, she's jumping and winning around 1.45m courses.  Romantika-S has thus far produced another Elite mare, a 1.30m show jumper sold to England, and a son that made it to the Zangersheide stallion selection.  

Romantika-S is shown below:

The dam of Romantika-S, Fabella, is still producing foals in Holstein.  Thus far, she has produced:
Cando (Candillo) - 1.60m showjumper and full sibling to Romantika-S
Calgary (Concerto II) - 1.60m showjumper
Caliku (Candillo) - 1.40m showjumper
Loxi 3 (Latus) - Grand Prix showjumper
Kabella - mother of Ares, 1.60m showjumper 

Babella is from the top Holsteiner stamm 890.  This is the stamm of approved stallions Casall, Berlin, Cobolensky, Confio C, Lancerto, Carentan and multiple others.  It is a highly successful motherline for the production of performance horses, with many 1.50/1.60m showjumpers to it's credit.   

Babella is by Verdi (aka Verdi TN NOP).  Verdi (Quidam de Revel x Landgraf) is one of the top showjumpers in the world; he won team silver at the 2012 Olympics and will no doubt accelerate to the top of the WBFSH rankings as a sire in the next few years. His first foal crop was in 2006 and those offspring are starting to hit the 1.50/1.60m ranks. 


Babella's grandsire is Candillo (Cassini I x Grundyman XX x Carneval).  Candillo was a 1.60m competitor and sired around 80 offspring that jumped 1.40m or better.  Candillo was the champion of his 100 day test.  Candillo was also known as an excellent "dam maker".


Further below in the pedigree, we find Corrado.  An introduction of this international superstar and king of Holstein is hardly necessary, and his influence is strong through his daughters.
