Lineage Sire:

Muse’s sire Diamant de Semilly needs no introduction he is one of the best stallions to ever come out of France. For years Diamant has topped the WBFSH Sire Rankings cementing his position as the best jumping sire in the world. Diamant is a powerful stallion with a strong back, scope, great balance, wonderful canter, suppleness, uncommon ease and super willingness, coupled with a rideability that he passes on to his offspring.

Diamant was successful immediately as a young horse, qualifying for the French Championships at Fontainebleau as a four, five, and six-year-old. His international career was exceptional: team gold at the 2002 World Equestrian Games (and individual ninth), team silver at the 2003 European Championships, and 2002 French Champion. He was selected for the 2004 Olympic Games, but missed out due to injury.

His international results include many wins and placings at grand prix, including: winner of the Pioltello Grand Prix, the St. Lô Grand Prix, and the 1999 Caen Stallion World Championship, third in the Cervia, Normandy, and Auvers grands prix, fourth in the Lummen and Modena Nations Cups, and eighth in the grands prix of Munchen and St. Lô. On his final competition appearance, he won the CSI4* Liege Grand Prix.

Sire Le Tot de Semilly won 22 international and 63 national Grands Prix between 1988 and 1991. At the age of seven, he was a member of the gold medal winning European Young Rider team, finishing fourth individually. As an eight-year-old, he was second at the Nations Cup in Hickstead, and the following year was second in the Wiesbaden Grand Prix, won the Bois le Roi Grand Prix and finished third in the Gijon Grand Prix and Nations Cup. When he retired in 1991, he had won almost €200,000 in prize money. At the 2003 Young Horse Finals in Fontainebleau, Le Tot de Sémilly was the sire of 29 competitors, while Diamant de Semilly was the sire of 28 – only Narcos, with 33, had more offspring competing. Many of his offspring have reached grand prix; one of the best known is the international superstar Itot du Chateau, who was fifth individually at the London Olympic Games, and has won the Doha, Cannes and Chantilly GCT Grands Prix, the London Olympic World Cup qualifier, and the Bordeaux Grand Prix, among many other international wins and placings.

Diamant was his dam’s first and only foal as he was orphaned at birth, but the damline has produced Korto Maltese, also by Le Tot de Semilly, a licensed stallion who competed up to 1.50m level. Also jumping at the same level from the damline were Milliard des Cresles, Jolita des Cresles (by Diamant de Semilly), Kama de Cresles, and Noble Sire. Damsire Elf III has produced grand prix offspring including the stallion Edelf Bauchetiere, and more than 30 licensed sons.

Diamant de Semilly’s offspring have been sensational. In 2015, Quickly de Kreisker and his rider Abdelkebir Ouddar were ranked the top jumping combination in the world; as a pair, they have picked up many international victories including classes in St. Tropez, Chantilly, Doha, Stuttgart, La Baule, and Fontainebleu. They have won the Paris Hermes Grand Prix, and World Cup qualifiers in Al Ain, Sharjah and Rabat, plus 11th in the 2014 World Cup Final, and appearances at the 2014 WEG and the 2016 Rio Olympics.

His other well-known grand prix winners include: Don VHP Z, Emerald, Heliodor Hybris, Sunshine, Hello Guv’nor, Rock’n’Roll Semilly, Flipper D’Elle, and Utamaro D’Ecaussines. He is also the sire of a CCI4* event horse in Toledo de Kerser, winner of the Bramham U25CCI3* in 2016 and shortlisted for the Rio 2016 Olympics under Tom McEwen.


One of the top marelines in Holland, show jumping qualities and beauty are deeply anchored in this pedigree.
Muse’s much sought after mareline has produced many approved stallions and International sport horses.

Muse’s dam is our imported Keur Eligible, PROK, D-OC KWPN mare Echinidee DN. To date she has produced four extraordinary foals: Kisme Blue P v. Zirocco Blue received excellent comments from the KWPN jury at his keuring receiving First Premium with a fantastic score, Las Vigos P v. Vigo d’Arsouilles, Muse du Chidee P v. Diamant de Semilly First Premium jumper foal and Navigator P v. Glasgow van ’t Merelsnest First Premium jumper foal.

Echinidee’s sire the prolific Chin Chin had a very impressive jumping career. In 1988 he won five competitions in the North American Champion League Circuit and finished 6th individually at the Olympic Games in Seoul. Four years later he attended the Olympic Games in Barcelona. In 1990 Chin Chin started in the inaugural World Equestrian Games in Stockholm. In 1989 and in 1990 he was placed in the finals of the World Cup in Dortmund and Tampa.

The offspring of Chin Chin include: Ta Belle van Sombeke, Triomphe de Muze, Querly Chin, Phin Phin, Riot Gun van de Padenborre and Tedechine Sept, who are all consistent in their good results. Daughter Sancha la Silla was an individual finalist at the Olympic Games in London and won the Grand Prix of Wellington.

Chin Chin also has a number of approved sons: Classe, Zapatero, Arezzo, Chin Top, and Chin Quidam.

Chin Chin’s sire Constant descends from the famous Cor de la Bryere, known as the “Reserve Stallion of the Century”, second only to Landgraf I.

This mareline produced the 2015 Dutch Champion at the KWPN foal selection Korinchidee DN [Etoulon x Chinchidee DN Elite, D-OC (Chin Chin x Contender x Landgraf I)]. The full blood sibling to Echinidee and dam to the 2015 foal champion Chinchidee DN Elite, D-OC was twice Champion of Holland as a foal then as a 3-year old she was crowned National Champion at the KWPN Horse days. Chinchidee passed the mare testing with an excellent top mark of 81.5.

Muse’s grand-dam the famous mare in Holland, Orchidee Ster, PROK, Preferent (Contender) already produced two licensed stallions, of which Original VDL (Oberon du Moulon) is jumping at 1.30m level in the USA and Quite Magic (Quidam de Revel) at 1.50/1.55m level under Cesar Almeida (BRA). Orchidee is also dam of the KWPN referred stallion Hudson DN (Arezzo VDL) and a 1.35m level jumper Twister (Emilion). Orchidee’s daughter Klarenchide DN (Zapatero) was the 6th place foal at the Dutch Championships in 2015. At the 2016 KWPN stallion show, Incognito DN PROK [Dakar x Upchidee (Emilion x Contender x Landgraf I)] was referred to the stallion testing, he is owned by VDL Stud.

Orchidee is sired by the legendary Contender who is without doubt, one of the most influential jumper sires today. Contender won his 100 day Stallion Performance test at Adelheidsdorf, Germany with the impressive jumping score of 146.62. He was later named Reserve Champion Main Premium Stallion of Oldenburg based on the extremely high quality of his first crop of foals. Contender stood at stud in Oldenburg for 3 years, and thereafter stood in Holstein.

From Contender’s first crop of foals alone came the international jumping horses Maria Callas (Ben Schreder), Niko (Geoff Billington), and Copa D’oro (Yves Houtackers), as well as the eventer Chicoletto (Herbert Blecker). Marco Kutscher is currently riding no less than three licensed Contender sons in international showjumping, these being Contreo, Conterno Grande and Montender, who was a Bronze Medalist at the Athens Olympic Games, German Champion in 2003, and European Champion in 2005. Checkmate competed at the European Championships under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, and the pair also won on the Rider’s Tour. Collin L, won the German Showjumping Derby ridden by Toni Hassmann. Controe [Contender x Aloube Z] has on two occasions taken 2nd place in Major classes at CSI’s at Amsterdam and Stockholm.

The 2004 World Champion Sire, Con Spirito R [Contender x Caletto I] has competed successfully under Theo Muff, and is now standing at the Ruetimann Stud in Switzerland. Other successful Contender sons include, as well as Contendro I, Camiros (1994 Licensing Champion), Contango (Performance Test Champion at Oldenburg, later exported to the US), Cantos [Contender x Goodtimes], Chellano Z [Contender x Cor De La Bryere], Koriander [Contender x Moltke I], Canabis Z [Contender x Silvester], Clinton [Contender x Maikoenig], Continue, Concetto, Caius, Coleo, Calvador, Concerto I and II, and CORDOBES I and II, who were purchased by Warendorf, the State Stud of Westphalia. Interestingly, Cordobes I was winner of the 1998 Stallion Performance Test with an overall score of 146.29, a mere 0.33 different from that of his sire!

The life-time earnings of Contender`s offspring such as the double European Champion, Montender, the two-time Riders Tour winner, Checkmate, and the three-time Derby winner, Collin have run over 3.9 million by 2006. In 2004, Contender was ranked 3rd in the World Showjumping Sire Ratings and 1st on the list of the World’s Best Showjumping Sires in 2005.

Contender is one of the many graded sons of Calypso ll whose progeny include the International showjumping stallions Montemorelos La Silla and Canas J. Calypso II is by the great sire of champions Cor de la Bryere who is a proven sire of sires through his son Cavalier Royal, the top producer of sport horses in Ireland. Cor de la Bryere’s progeny have won over Euro 1.5 million in prize money in Germany alone. His International showjumping progeny include San Patrigiano Corrode, Cordalme Z, VDL Corland, Cera 001, Bollvorm’s Chablis and Global Concorde. He is also the sire of the international dressage horses Cabaret, Caprice, Castello and the world famous Corlandus.

Muse’s great grand-dam, Jasmina Keur, Preferent, Prestatie received 8.5 for jumping in her mare test. Jasmina produced four showjumping horses at 1.30-1.50m level including the Zangersheide licensed stallion and Dutch Champion Ultimate VDL (Indoctro).

Jasmina’s sire the legendary Landgraf I by Ladykiller xx is a top source of all-round competition talent in the Holstein breed and one of the worlds leading sires of all time. He has over 30 offspring currently jumping at top International level including: Libero H (1994 World Cup Champion with Jos Lansink), Leandra and Lucky Luke ridden by Otto Becker, Landadel, Landlord, Taggi, Major Wager and is the sire of the international dressage horse Lugano 140. His total progeny winnings to date are well over EURO 2.5 million.

Landgraf I, has been labelled by many as “the” Stallion of the Century. His genes are securely anchored in the breed of the modern sporthorse.

Nearly 60 colts by Landgraf I have been licenced for the Holsteiner stud book, like the champion of 1991, Linaro, and the dressage talent, Loutano. Some of his sons have already achieved top positions as performance sires, for example, Letus II, a jumping sire, and the versatile Landadel, who produced three champion stallions for the Oldenburger breed alone, and also the outstanding international showjumper, Le Cou Cou, a licenced stallion.

So far, 340 broodmares by Landgraf I are registered in the Holsteiner stud book, 260 of these are in the Head Stud Book, 70 have been awarded the State Premium, and a considerable number have been champion mares at shows.

Landgraf I was born in1966 and past away in 1996. He had a very good temperament which he passed on dominantly, together with excellent movement.

In his Stallion Book of the Holsteiner Warmblood Breed, Dr Dietrich Rossow comments: “Imposing appearance with enormous crest and neck carriage. Smooth total topline and much presence. Beautiful face with marvellous eye. Long, rather broad neck, long sloping shoulder. Well shaped, muscular croup, strong bone and good in front. Good mover. Marvellous temperament. Phenomenal jumper; tight in front, lots of bascule, careful and talented. Great performance capabilities.”

Landgraf I is far and away the most important sire in the world!
