August, 30th 2013 Our bred Bjirmen’s Wytse Twa (s. Vita Nova’s Hanassie, d. Kooihúster Wietske) and his rider Jisca Hut became Res. Champion at the National Show Jumping finals (1.00 meter).



August, 28th 2013 Our keur-prestatie mare Kooihúster Wietske (s. Downland Folklore) is graded as 'elite' mare. With this she preceeds her dam Kooihúster Ytsje (s. Burstye Orpheus) and grand-dam Atje (S. Conquistador). This reflects the excellent quality of this breeding-line. No other breeding-line in Dutch Welsh sportponies studbook has reached this level.

ELite



August, 17th 2013 At the National Mare Show our young mare Bjirmen’s Lidewij (s. Heitrak’s Marvin, d. Kooihúster Wietske) is graded as a ’ster’ mare! We are excited with this result. This supports our efforts in the continuation of the breeding of the mare-line Atje - Kooihúster Ytsje - Kooihúster Wietske. Bjirmen’s Lidewij is scanned in foal to Coelenhage’s Purioso.
