Ushina is a sweet and beautiful daughter of the VDL's champion stallion, Orame, and out of a daughter of Nimmerdor, stallion of the century!
Ushina was imported as a foal, and earned her Star predicate at her Keuring in Kansas.
She has had foals by Freestyle and Flemmingh, and we are pleased and excited to add Ushina to our group of quality mares.
Thank You to Cynthia Johnson for allowing us to acquire her.
Orame was the winner of his stallion performance test, as well being champion of his stallion liscensing. Orame sires beautiful horses with correct conformation, good and powerful movements and a lot of suppleness. His offspring are easy to ride and jump with good technique and lots of scope. Orame's pedigree is from the best performance blood! He is sired by the legendary Indoctro, and out of a Keur, Elite & Preferent Ramiro Z/ Alme mare. Orame himself competed up to 1.6M, and was a winner at the Nations Cup, along with many Grand Prix's, with riders Chris Kapper and Jur Vrieling.
Ushina's dam, Dorina is a Star daughter of Nimmerdor, and out of the Preferent mare, Relanse. Relanse has had several highly predicated offspring by Nimmerdor and Ahorn, and many of those daughters have themselves produced top sporthorses, in both Show Jumping and Dressage. Ushina's 3/4 sibling, Plutas (aka Draco) (by Indoctro) jumped at the 1.6M level with Nick Dello Joio.
Ushina's 2015 filly by Van Gogh (Numero Uno / Bernstein/ is a beautiful, modern type with powerful jumper type movement. She was awarded a 1st Premium at her KWPN keuring.
Ushina gave us an absolutely stunning filly by the stallion Arezzo VDL. This modern, long legged beauty is Ushina's final gift to us, as she sadly passed away from foaling complications on July 4, 2016.
