Nirvana, aka "Kobe", is a special young colt, with a promising future in sport and potentially as a breeding stallion. In Sept 2016 he was licensed by CWHBA. He is an elegant guy, with big movement and a very correct and beautiful jump. We are very excited to breed select mare to him in 2017.
Kobe's sire, Novalis, is a proven jumper stallion, who is exceptionally well bred. Novalis one of the few sons available from the legendary Jus De Pomme. Jus de Pomme was the double Gold Medal winner in Show Jumping at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. He was the only horse to compete with no jumping faults. At the time of his death he had winnings of over $100,000.00.
Novalis’s dam line is also equally as impressive His dam, is the Ster Preferent mare Jacintha whose sire is G Ramiro Z. G Ramiro Z has been labeled the “ Stallion OF THE CENTURY” and is once again listed as the # 1 leading Sire of Jumpers, as well as the #20 leading sire for Dressage Horses as listed in the WBFSH International Breeding Guide 1999. Novalis’s granddam the Preferent mare Fantasia is a full sister to the Dutch Stallions "Wellington" and "Elberton". The great grand sire is Nimmerdor, was the KWPN stallion of the Century 2000”. Also in Novalis’ pedigree are Primo de Bruyeres #87, Night and Day #142, Alme #31, Farn #77, and Lucky Boy #69. Novalis himself is a strong competitor in the jumper ring, having shown in North America and Europe to Grand Prix- 1.5 meter under riders Markus Beerbaum, Marc Houtzager, and Laura Kraut. Novalis competed at top shows against tough competition with excellent results. NOVALIS produces offspring with correct conformation, excellent temperaments, jumping ability and his trademark gallop! NOVALIS foals have super temperaments, and a strong desire to please. They are also proving themselves to be super competition horses, and are performing very well in sport.
Kobe's mom, is a premium CWB mare by Pik Kasso, out of a mare by Lucky Boy II. While her sport career was short, she is an exceptional broodmare, who consistently produces nothing less than exceptional foals.
