Don VHP Z is a big framed horse with a big sense of humour. He is super careful and scopey with correct, uphill paces. Competing BS, as a young horse he jumped numerous double clears in Newcomers and Foxhunter. He was a Finalist at Addington Young Horse Championship in 2009 and selected to represent GB at the World Championships for young horses at Lanaken in Belgium. In 2010 he started the season by winning the Walwyn Championship at Royal Windsor, he went on to qualify Newcomers & Foxhunter 2nd rounds. Then he won the 6 year old Championship final at HOYS.
After his fantastic third place at Leipzig under Harrie Smolders he has qualified for the 2016 World Cup final and is on the Dutch squad for Rio 2016. His half brother Carlos VHP is on flying form in 1.60m classes at Wellington with Maclaine Ward. We also have a younger half brother (Elvis ter Putte x Sara) that we are very excited about that may stand at stud to a few select mares in 2016.
By Diamant de Semilly, in turn by Le Tot de Semilly, they are proven French bloodlines.

Also in breeding Diamant de Sémilly has distinguished himself as a producer of international showjumping horses. A product from his second season, Kalaska de Semilly, jumped in the Hong Kong Olympics.
