11 year old Dutch horse, working PSG, showing 4th. Sire- Larduc (trak) dam sire Faram. 15.3, best horse I have ever sat on. Has piaffe, passage and one tempis for me to learn in the future. (I have done several lines of 11-one tempis, it is better than sex, whaat a feeling)
Having answered a couple of these threads, I'm starting to realize the full extent of our horse collecting habit
We have a 7yo Black mare by Voltaire II out of an FEI mare.
Unfortunately good for nothing but a damned good broodmare after a paddock accident, currently in foal to a Londonderry son. Crossing all fingers and toes for a black with chrome colt, at 16.3-17hh....
I have an 18 hand KWPN. He is by Vosmaer out of a Taxateur mare. His full brother (Ijsselmeer Ikepono) was 2007 horse of the year at GP for the California Dressage Society. We're schooling 3rd. Jabberwocky has never been shown primarily because of his string halt and my schedule. I hope to show him in 2009 at 1st. We may get kicked out but we're going to try.

I have a rising four y.o. Dutch filly that I bred. She is by Consul, out of my mare, Fan Dancer (deceased); dark bay with chrome, 16.1 and growing. She is very smart, sweet, bold and curious and has been easy to back.
She started under saddle this spring so we have been working on the basics and riding out on trails. She is extremely balanced at the walk, trot and canter. She was approved to the studbook at her keuring, and she is out with the other youngsters for the winter.
Ballroom Dancer 10 yr. old black mare (Dutch bred, but MMB GOV).
Dam: V Corryl
She is a fabulous mare who I was going to be sending to Kate Poulin but she's struggled with recurring bouts of Lyme disease. When she's in remission she's awesome, when she relapses, not rideable. Such a damned shame. Hate that disease!
Tycho - coming 9 year old gleding, Krack C x Partout - full brother to the approved dutch stallion "United" ridden by Edward Gal. We are working at 3rd - 4th level
Ariella - 3 year old mare, Trento B x Zortin x Jashin - she is my superstar, she won her mare performance test in Holland with 8s on all gaits. She is bred to the fabulous Jonhson (Jazz x Flemmigh) - should be a spectacular foal! She is absolutely incredible to ride - she is sensible but sensitive, always good in the contact and always ready to work - the coolest horse I have ever ridden!
Ashley - 3 year old mare, Trento B x Bustron x Jashin - another one of my broodmares, he is big, beautiful and an incredible mover. She is bred to this year's PAVO Cup winner Zuidenwind (by OOseven)
Confidence - yearling by Prestige and out of a Flemmingh mare. She is an older type and has the best temperament on earth. She is a real sweetheart and will be a broodmare and my fiance's riding horse.
My mom and I have a 1987 Dutch stallion, Facet. He's Vanitas x Tolbert. Such an awesome stallion. He was trained to Grand Prix by Ellen Bontje, and she competed him fairly heavily before he was a YR horse, and then was passed on to us at the age of 16. He took me from 2nd level to PSG in a year, and we finished third individually at juniors in 2004 (when I was 14). He's 21 now and still gets ridden 6 days a week very happily, and he's a great schoolmaster for my mom!
I also recently sold a Dutch WB - Elberton x Zevenaar. I don't know much about Dutch breeding, but I've been told those are actually jumping lines. He was a great dressage horse, though. Very quirky, but a lot of fun!
I have a 6YO that as a 4/5 YO we legged up in anticipation of a dressage career .. due to his size, we decided to go really (really) slow. He is by Alla'Czar and I am not certain of his dam.
When we were ready to go to work (after he was good and fit - which took almost 9 months of undersaddle work to accomplish) he severed an artery in his hind leg and we lost a year .. so, we are starting back, he is totally let down, but hopefully will come back fitness wise faster than before ... he is 18.1 (possibly 18.2 now)....
This is him when he started to get legged up (in Ocala) Sept 2007:
