Pedigree Profile of Dageraad Blossem
Blossem was also bought at the dispersal sale of the Dutch Warmblood Stud in South Africa. Bought as a broodmare, she has however started being produced under saddle. Although complicated, she is one of the most phenomenal horses I have ever ridden.
Sired by the talented KWPN Stallion Sandreo, who combines in his pedigree the best of European Dressage blood. Sire Sandro Hit (Sandro Song) gained world fame when, under Dr. Ulf Moller, he won the title for six-year-olds at the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden. The impressive Sandro Hit daughter Poetin, followed, four years later, in her famous father’s footsteps and won that much-desired World Title.
As well as this, with a short period of time, Sandro Hit established a stallion line with more than 20 licensed sons. On his dam’s side Sandreo carries the valuable dressage blood of FlemmingH (Lacapo). This Holstein stallion produced a series of successful dressage horses of which Lingh (Edward Gal) and Krack C (Anky van Grunsven) are the most well known.
Sandreo’s dam line goes back, via the stallions Ahorn, Zevenster and Oracle, to a renowned Gelders family (NL mares line 003). This famous ‘prestatie’ stock also produced the International and National Dressage hoses Benno (Pericles xx) and Kasjmir (Clavecimbel) as well as the stallions Havidoff (Clavecimbel), Caritas (Vanitas), Bredero (Notaris) and Fighting Alpha (Fruhling).
Sandreo more than confirmed the value of his pedigree. As a 4-year-old he won the PAVO-Cup in convincing manner. His guest rider Rien van der Schaft awarded the stallion even as many as 95 points. Then Sandreo continued his success by winning the Stallion Competition. Also Sandreo’s offspring are more than noteworthy at selections and foal auctions. The Stallion received a fine offspring report, which mentions ‘a uniform group of high-legged, riding-type foals with great charisma, who display a lot of self carriage and suppleness in action’.
Blossem’s dam Linda, is also the dam of stallion Siem. She was an imported mare by the stallion landwind.
