KWPN Stallion Vivaldi and Dutch rider Hans Peter Minderhoud
Wiratoro (Viva Vivaldi x Vanitas) - Magic Viva Vivaldi is one of the latest stallions from the famous Vollkorn xx lineage in Oldenburg. On the damís side the line goes back, via the producers of movement Vanitas (Pretendent) and Amor, to the mare Gigranta (Cigrant) from NL dam line 081. Gigranta is also registered as grandam to the national dressage horse Cigrant (Pele). From this widely branched family too comes Patricia Callaghanís Grand Prix dressage horse Philip C (Doruto), as do the licensed stallions Obrecht (Lucky Boy xx), Boston (Ulft), Dublin (Ulft) and Mantovani (Quattro).
Vivaldi (Jetset D x Eusebio) - Sire Jet Set-D is by Zirkoon (Nuprimus) out of the `keur preferent prestatie` awarded mare Escansan (Le Mexico). Dam Isebia (Eusebio) is bred, like the KWPN stallion Astronaut (Le Mexico) , out of the `keur preferent prestatie` awarded mare Roodnootnel (Liguster) who is also grandam of the national dressage horse Evian (Zirkoon). Astronaut, in turn, performed very well at international level in the showjumping sport under Rudi Helsen. The Grand Prix jumper Hollywood (Calvados) is, like Vivaldi, a direct descendant of Wachtmeester daughter Garonetta.
