ABOUT Zürich

Eurocommerce Zürich, champion of the showjumping stallions of the KPWN stallion selection in ’s Hertogenbosch, is one with the X-factor. The jury of the stallion selection committee assessed him as follows: “A complete horse. A great horse. He has a fantastic well-balanced canter, with a very regular stride. He is a steady, natural jumper, with fast reflexes, good technique, power and insight.”

In the pedigree of Zürich the successful international showjumping sire Eurocommerce Berlin is combined with a rock-hard Dutch sport family, NL-mares line 048. Berlin’s dam Estia (Caretino) was herself also successful at the highest level of the showjumping sport, acting under the name of Cathleen W and ridden by Marc Wirths. The mare also inherited her sport talents from her grandam Ostia (Freeman xx) who earned world-fame by the name of Frimella. The family of Berlin, Holsteiner lineage 890, belongs to the most successful sport families in Holsteiner breeding.

The dam of Zürich, Tsarina is no-one less than the full sister of the KWPN stallion Larino on which Peter Geerink caused sensation in the international showjumping sport. Both descend from showjumping horse producer Concorde and the ‘prestatie’-awarded mare Erina (Armstrong), a full sister of the international showjumping horse Romulus ridden by Peter Geerink. Great-grandam Warina descends from Ridder and the sport mare Rosalinda (Le Mexico) with which Janny Horsey has been successful in the showjumping ring. Warina also produced, in combination with Naturel, the KWPN stallion Couperus, who did well in national showjumping competitions. That stallions from this family pass on their valuable genes is demonstrated by the offspring of Couperus and Larino. The famous sport- and breeding stallion Mr. Blue is a product from Couperus’ only crop in the Netherlands. The successful international showjumping horse Redefin, ridden by Ian Millar, is a product of Larino.
