LADYHAWKE (Elite, IBOP, PROK, D-OC)

Glenfiddich VDL x Cantos x Indorado x Fedor

Born: March 20, 2016 
Gender: Mare
Colour: Bey (gg E? A?) 
Height: 16.1 1/2 hh (1.66m)
Breed: KWPN

Sire: Glenfiddich VDL (Baltic VDL x Corrado I x Nimmerdor)

Dam: Gwenhwyvar (Cantos x Indorado x Fedor) - keur, ibop

Breeding Date: April 11, 2015

Expected Due Date: March 16, 2016 (@ 340 days)

Saddened by the loss of her Kannan filly, we have decided to switch stallions for Gwen this year and have chosen the young and talented Glenfiddich VDL. The only approved son of Bacardi VDL (Ridden by Jos Lansink, he won a Silver medal at the World Championships for 7-year old jumpers in Lanaken in 2013), Glenfiddich descends from one of the best French parent lines. Glenfiddich is a well developed stallion with unlimited power, a very good jumping technique and a lot of overview. He canters with lots of power. He had a good performance test where he scored a total of 79 points (8.5 for his ability and 8's for his canter, rideability and attitude and his talent as a jumper). We think he will be a great match for our Gwenhwyvar, adding size, scope and power to her wonderfully feminine appearance and great gaits!

Introducing "LADYHAWKE"

This beautiful filly was born at 11:45pm on Sunday March 20th - a wonderful gift on this first day of spring!!

VDL Stallion Show - April 02 2016

I am proud to say that Ladyhawke has been selected by the VDL family to represent the quality of offspring produced by Glenfiddich VDL. This is the first foal crop that will be presented at the annual stallion show.

2017

Ladyhawke is everything that we could have hoped for the cross of Glenfiddich VDL with Gwenhwyvar!! I am so excited to see her as she develops over the next couple of years as she is being retained for a future sport and breeding career.

2018

Ladyhawke had been sick prior to my arrival and had lost alot of weight, but thankfully she is starting to get better. Since she was up in the stables, we decided to take a little video of her in the jumping oval.

2019

Ladyhawke is looking well out in the winter fields - maybe at a bit of an awkward stage as she is coming three years old. 


It will be interesting to see how she grows and develops this year as we get ready to present her at her studbook inspection and hopefully for her IBOP.


I am hoping that we can also get her pregnant this year.

April 2019

Ladyhawke has received her PROK certificate

June 25: Studbook Inspection 

July 03: Just starting under saddle

October 24: IBOP

Ladyhawke passed her IBOP today with a score 79 points. I'm thrilled to say that means that she has now earned her elite predicate just like her dam Gwenhwyvar and granddam Apolaris.

Ladyhawke is now an Elite mare!!
