The pedigree of Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve is an accumulation of the best European show jumping horse sires. All stallions in the first four removes of Tangelo’s dam’s line have performed at international level in show jumping. Inevitably Tangelo made his breakthrough at international level in 2004 and had remarkable achievements under Roelof Bril.
His sire Narcos II (Fair Play III) is amongst the best sires in French breeding. Also dam’s sire Laudanum xx is one of the foremost show jumping horse progenitors in the world. Tangelo’s grandam Racyona Z was bred at the famous Belgian stud farm Zangersheide. In combination with Cor de la Bryère Racyona Z also produced the licensed stallion Colorado Z.
The dam’s line continues via Almé Z to the Hanoverian foundation dam Grata Z, a daughter of the progenitor Gotthard. His lift-off, wellrounded jumps and excellent leg technique, a surplus in power and carefulness make Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve one of the most remarkable horses in his age group. He is also doing brilliantly in breeding with two sons already licensed: Triple was champion at the NRPS and Vigaro (Zangersheide) came second in the quality inspection for four-year-olds in Geesteren 2006. That the offspring score highly for type and free jumping was confirmed at the mare.
