Lovely combination of dressage and jumping genes and eventing achievements
Mardando has shown himself to be exceptionally strong during free jumping and moving, with very good gaits and a hugely convincing jump, a lot of insight and good technique. All this plus a pedigree that oozes versatility.
The sire, Zardando, was bred interestingly, with a lineage in which the right attitude, workability and quality are anchored. Dam's sire Highline comes from a fantastic sports line and was sired by thoroughbred Sit This One Out.
Zardando is a son of Grand Prix dressage stallion Tango, out of sport elite mare, Roxcella, that was introduced in the Lichte Tour. The daughter of Grand Prix stallion Garibaldi produced Z dressage horse Withacella by Rubiquil. Her dam, Marcella (sport dressage, star, PROK, performance by Contango), was also introduced in the Lichte Tour. She produced Z2 horse Cidando (S. Vivaldi) and ZZ light horse Ferdando (S. Bordeaux). The direct dam's lineage also produced international dressage horses such as Eduard (S. Zonneglans) with Coby van Baal, Olright (S. Rubiquil) ridden by Laurens van Lieren and Kwartial (S. Cyrian) ridden by Thamar Zweistra.
During the performance inspection, Zardando was praised for his litheness, carriage, excellent jumper's gallop and good attitude. Zardando was third in the KWPN stallion competition, ridden by Theo Hanzon. He was then entered in the Z1 class, ridden by his breeder, Arno Pullens. Zardando's offspring are characterised by a very easy-going, well-behaved nature and willingness to work. With much of the type, light-footedness, strength and carriage in their movement that Zardando himself has.
Stallion Highline gave many lovely recreational horses, often suitable for all disciplines, including international show-jumping and dressage horses such as Patrick van der Meer's Norman and also multiple national and international eventing horses such as CCI5* Woody ridden by Georgie Spence. The Sit This One Out stallion comes from a very well-known dam's pedigree. Dam, with Keur predicate, Diancara (S. Ramiro Z) is a descendant of Keur Preferente Zancara (S. Nimmerdor), a full sister of international show-jumping stallion Aldato and dam of stallions Great Pleasure and Montreal. Before that, the legendary Holstein import mare Shoraya (S. Ladykiller XX).
