Waverley Giselle (2011)// A Black KWPN Filly.
Full Name: Waverley Giselle (2011)
Breeding Summary: Wynton / Special D / Equador
Dam: Zouelle (Special D/Equador)
Height: To Make 16.2hh
Approved By: KWPN Passport, microchipped and registered
In the early hours of Sunday April 10th, 2011, Zouelle delivered a gorgeous black filly foal, by the KWPN Stallion Wynton. Zouelle is by Special D (a licensed son of Metall, the sire of Uthopia) and from a long line of Keur and Ster mares. Giselle has great conformation with lovely long straight limbs, a compact uphill outline and an expressive intelligent face, with a big white star in the centre of her forehead. Her movement is supple and expressive. Giselle is easy to work with and a very trainable filly, accepting new experiences calmly and confidently. She is easy to load, great with vet and farrier and loves to made a fuss of.
Giselle's sire, Wynton (foaled 2003), was named Champion of the KPWN Stallion licensing at the 70 day testing for three year olds in 2006. He earned nines for his trot and canter, an 8.5 for his walk and a 9 for overall capability as a dressage horse. He then came second in the Pavo Cup as a 4 year old in 2007, before winning it in 2008 as a 5 year old. Wynton has inherited the active hind leg of his Jazz sire, and the riding horse qualities and temperament of both Matador II and Rubinstein (leaving the arena on a long rein amid rapturous applause when he competes). He is tall (17 hands) and an elegantly leggy, uphill, totally modern type.
His dam is by the famous former dressage champion MATADOR II, ridden so successfully by Kyra Kirklund. Grand-dam sire is the legendary Rubinstein, top producer of sports horses so well known for their tremendous “willingness to work” and well balanced gaits. Wynton’s sire is JAZZ (keur). Not only is he a currently consistent top placed Gran Prix dressage competition stallion, but he is also a breeding champion with 8 licensed sons, 187 ster-mares, 77keur-mares, 50 elite-mares and 1 preferent-mare.
Giselle's dam, Zouelle is an exceptionally beautiful black mare with excellent, refined conformation and correct movement. She is by Special D out of a Preferent mare from illustrious show-jumping lines (Equador/ Furioso) – please see Zouelle’s page for more information.
