Jaguar is full of presence and really has the “The X Factor”. An elegant and rectangular model of warmblood but with solid bone, good feet and strong muscle – he moves with much cadence and power. Everyone who meets him falls in love with his kind affectionate nature and stunning looks. With the combination of the several Preferent stallions in his blood, this makes for a strong dressage and jumping pedigree; recently started under saddle in 2019 he is already living up to his pedigree with a fantastically balanced canter and a big, clean, bold jump. He is proving to be very trainable and sensible to ride both on his own and amongst other horses which is very important for a stallion. His fertility is proven with 2 stunning yearlings on the ground and whilst he is a fantastic stallion/stud for the future. Jaguar descends from some of the best Dutch bloodlines and his silver colour comes from the original KWPN Aafke damline which is world famous and produced the top stallion “Special D” (who was exported to America). His damsire is Jet-Set D, the famous KWPN Stallion (Zirkoon x Le Mexico x Amor), Champion KWPN performance test in Ermelo 1994, Approved by KWPN, Oldenburg, FWB and sBs, sire of several Grand Prix performing offspring in dressage and showjumping.

In dressage he is a sire of High scoring Dressage regional champions & finalists, others are showing skill and talent for jumping. Amoureux`s sire Saros Van`t Gestelhof claimed over 50 Wins up to Prix St Georges in Dressage. Over a period of thirty years, the `Preferent` G Ramiro Z`s performance as a sporthorse and breeding sire earned him the well deserved titles `Stallion of the Century` and `King of Sires.` Bred in Holstein, born in Westfalia, licensed at Neumünster, Ramiro Z was an international performer under Fritz Ligges, a stallion that has had a far reaching influence on the greatest acheiving sports horses of today. During his own sporting career he had numerous wins at all levels of show jumping including Nations Cups, Puissance (jumping over 2.2 metre) and in international Grand Prix competition.

Her sire is the legendary Krack C who competed successfully at Grand Prix level with Anky Van Grunsven.
Jaguar’s dam is the wonderful Silver Dilute KWPN mare “Romy” who competed successfully in dressage before being retired sound to stud. Romy’s sire is the legendary Jetset D, sire of Carl Hester’s stallion Pro-Set and numerous high class performance horses such as the International Grand prix showjumper Jonkeer Z and the International Grand prix Dressage horse “On Top”. Jetset D competed successfully in show jumping before going to Natalie Smeets to be trained for dressage where he competed at international level. Jetset D’s sire, Zircoon, was an international Grand Prix horse ridden by Bert Rutten.
