Video of Vidora 4 years old, free moving & just under saddle: video.

Dutch article about great grandsire Doruto: "Stempelhengst Doruto" (In de Strengen 4-2013).

The mare Vidora shows the same great movements as both her parents:

  • dam Nivaldora a "sport" mare, was succesfully showing at dressage level Z2.

  • sire Jazz (pref): Dutch dressage champion 2002, and international succesfully showing GP stallion! KWPN horse of the year in 2006, he's at the first place by far on the WBFSH list of dressage stallions. 

We have presented Vidora at the regional KWPN foal competition of 2002, with quite some succes.

Vidora is a very eager dressage horse with impressive movements, we broke her in when she was 3, and trained her up to dressage level Z1 before she got her first foal.  

On June 20 2009 she was awarded with the KWNP "STER" predicate , followed by a vl-keur predicate on July 11 2009 at the KWPN CK Sevenum.

Vidora is also very successful in the dressage arena: we took her back in training again more intensively in the summer of 2009, and in November 2009 she gained her score > 60% at Z2 level, needed for the KEUR and SPORT predicate!  

In dec 2009 she was x-rayed for her PROK certificate: she met the requirements, which gives her the status of ELITE mare!

With a dressage index of 163, Vidora is in the top 200 of best KWPN dressage mares in her category (KWPN table 2014).

Vidora's dam line originates from KWPN breeding family 1633. She carries the valuable blood of Doruto in her veins. Vidora's granddam Rolanda (foundation mare of dam line 1633) gave the small tour dressage horse Flying Dutchman (by Zevenster) and also the Grand Prix dressage horse Privaldi (by Gribaldi), which holds the 236th position on the WBFSH-list of dressage horses (2012). A full sister of Vidora's great granddam Joliza gave the international GP showjumping mare Ferina (by Ramiro).

Vidora's daughter Elphidora E.H. ended up in the top 5 ranking of 1050 youngsters in the 3 year old test in Sweden, with a 10 for her trot!

Vidora's son Joyride E.H. (by Ampère) passed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd round of the KWPN stallion selection and was accepted for the 70 days KWPN stallion performance test in Ermelo (also see info below).

Unfortunately our beloved Vidora passed away in the morning of june 8th 2017 due to internal bleeding in the uterus, the day after Manhattan was invisible and delayed birth complication with a shocking outcome. She was only 15 years old.
