Sapphire ISF is an exciting 2022 KWPN-NA filly sired by the popular stallion Secret and out of the accomplished Elite/Sport mare Ballerina Ceroon, by Oscar. This is a unique offering for the North American market as Secret is no longer available for further breeding. With scores of 85 on conformation and 83 on movement, Sapphire was awarded First Premium, Foal Champion, Young Horse Champion, and High Score Dressage Horse of the day at her 2022 KWPN-NA keuring. This is a tall filly with a very good type, top gaits, and a lot of expression. Raised in our professional program, she is handled regularly and is familiar with grooming, bathing, and clipping. Sapphire is sure to stand out in any show ring and is an undeniable choice for ambitious Amateurs or Professionals that are looking for their next top prospect for development in sport. With her impressive pedigree, she is also a top candidate for future use in breeding.
Sire Secret caused a sensation as a just started three-year old and has now confirmed himself as both a performance horse and breeding stallion. He was Reserve Bundeschampion of the 3-year- old Riding Stallions in 2017, Reserve World Champion for 5-year-olds in 2019, and Bundeschampion of the 6-year-olds in 2020 with highlight scores of 10 for canter, 9.5 for trot, and 9 for general impression. In his first foal crops, Secret cemented himself as a producer of modern types, elastic movement, and top rideability. Secret himself is by the triple World Young Horse Champion Sezuan, who has gone on to success at the PSG/I1 level.
Dam Ballerina Ceroon, a full sister to the approved KWPN stallion Uphill, is from the distinguished Family van Norel breeding program in Holland. She finished a very strong IBOP as a three-year-old in 2009 with an overall 85.5% and subsequently competed up to the Z2 Level (3rd/4th Level) in Europe. Ballerina reached the half finals of the PAVO Cup in 2010 and 2011 and placed 5th at the National Mare Show in Ermelo. Ballerina has produced numerous First Premium foals, breed show winners, and top riding horses for the ISF breeding program.
