Knegt's Icelos Eickenrode in FINAL World Championships Lanaken
The six-year-old Knegt's Icelos Eickenrode has qualified for the final of the World Breeding Championships in Lanaken. After a clear round on the first day, Rob Heijligers steered him to the 12th place on Friday. Securing a ticket to the final on Sunday!
Icelos Eickenrode is sired by Dakar VDL and the first offspring of our mare Eline H (Indoctro x Corrado I). We sold him as a foal to the Van Eerd family of Knegt Stables.

Everybody that calls him- or herself a jumping enthusiast must know the Holsteiner dam line 474a. It must be the fact that this dam line brought many international jumpers such as Verdi NOP, Vingino and Bubalu VDL. Maybe we also need to add Octavus Eickenrode. Genetic value is not an issue with this one. His dam Boracific VDL was declared vice-champion of Friesland as a 3yo with 80 for conformation and 85 for jumping. She showcased the 90 points for reflexes at 1.30m level. Her first offspring is breaking through at international 1.40m, 1.35m and 1.30m levels. She is also half-sister to the 1.50m classified Ferrari VDL, and aunt to the 1.50m showjumper Fremont VDL. Her famous granddam Shoraya produced Grand Prix-stallion N-Aldato and 1m50 mare Dhalia and forms the basis of countless other international showjumpers.
Ridden by Rob Heijligers, Knegt's Icelos Eickenrode qualified for the Longines FEI/WBFSH World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken. The Dakar VDL-son left quite an impression during these National Championships. Two clear days brought the combination to the final, in which they reached the jump-off once more. A fault withheld the two from a higher placement, but a 7th position and a ticket to the world championships in Lanaken is a tremendous end result.
We have bred Icelos out of Eline H (Indoctro x Corrado I) and sold him as a foal via the Dutch Top Foals auction to family Van Eerd of Stal Knegt. Wednesday September 4th, another foal will be auctioned: Octavus Eickenrode (Harley VDL out of Boracific VDL elite sport pref prest by Indorado). His half brother Icarius Eickenrode (Zirocco Blue VDL) was also in the final today and came very close to obtaining a ticket to Lanaken as well.

The 26th of May, a beautiful colt by Kannan was born out of our Heartbreaker-mare Heartbeat Z. It is a big chestnut sporting a lot of white. He was named Orientis Eickenrode, Orientis is Latin for sunrise, referring to the time of birth.
On the 3rd of May, our mare Boracific VDL elite prok sport-spr prest (v.Indorado x Indoctro x Ladykiller) gave birth to a foal by Harley VDL.
The high-legged bay colt received the name Octavus Eickenrode. Octavus is Latin for eight, this is the eighth foal for Boracific, and was also a popular boys name in the Roman Empire. A short video can be found on our instagram @eickenrode.
April 25th our 4yo mare Kalorata Eickenrode (Cardento x Heartbreaker) brought a foal by Erco van t Roosakker into this world. It is a quick, bay colt that received the name Ocellus Eickenrode. Ocellus is Latin and means 'darling, something beautiful', a suitable name for this gorgeous foal! A short video can be found on our Instagram @eickenrode.
Our broodmare Boracific VDL (s.Indorado) was granted the predicate 'prestatie' by the KWPN based on the achievements of her offspring. As a 3-year-old, Boracific VDL obtained 8o points for conformation and 85 points for freejumping, including 90 points for reflexes. As a result she was made vice-champion of the region of Friesland and declared preliminary keur. In the sport she earned her sport-predicate and therefore also the predicate 'elite'. Thanks to the sport accomplishments of Gladius Eickenrode, Hesperus Eickenrode and 6-year-old Icarius Eickenrode, who made his clear debut in 1.30m level last week, she now also carries the predicate 'prestatie'.

Wij proberen met behulp van kwaliteitsvolle merries uit sterke moederlijnen, qua sportprestaties en exterieur en door gebruik te maken van de juiste hengsten, een bovengemiddeld springpaard te fokken. Hierbij vinden wij naast de potentie voor de hogere springsport ook het behoud van een goed exterieur, een goed karakter en de rijdbaarheid zeer belangrijk. Het fokken en opfokken van veulens is een hobby waar wij als familie veel plezier aan beleven .
Ieder jaar verkopen wij veulens met interessante bloedlijnen en fokken daarnaast soms enkele veulens op om later als toekomstig sportpaard te verkopen.
Wij wonen in de Gelderse Vallei in Kootwijkerbroek gelegen tussen Amersfoort en Apeldoorn nabij Voorthuizen en Barneveld op een kwartier rijden van het KWPN en KNHS centrum te Ermelo.
