Nearco VDL van’t Merelsnest, an impressive son of the stallion of the century Diamant de Semilly from one of the best mare lines in Belgium.

Sire Diamant de Semilly is one of the most sought-after sires of show jumpers of the last decades. He already produced exceptional stallions like Emerald van’t Ruytershof, Don VHP Z, Elvis ter Putte, Andiamo de Semilly or Quickly de Kreisker. His dam Naila van’t Merelsnest is a daughter of Kannan, who currently has more than 150 offspring that are internationally successful at 1.60m level. Naila is currently internationally successful under Jur Vreiling/ NED and genetically goes back to the Cardinal xx daughter Chiquita. Chiquita is the line founder of the popular Van Bunder family. Her most famous daughter is undoubtedly Idjaz-C by Hedjaz, who produced seven Grand Prix horses including Sapphire, double Olympic winner under MacLain Ward/ USA. She is also the granddam of Glasgow van’t Merelsnest.

Nearco VDL van’t Merelsnest already inspires with his almost unlimited ability.
He has three very good basic gaits and has high rideability values. He finished his KWPN Performance Test with a final score of 76.5 points. Especially his ability, rideability and character & attitude were judged with eighth marks.

Nearco VDL van’t Merelsnest is a highly interesting young stallion, who is an absolute asset for modern sport horse breeding due to his genetic diversity and disposition.
