Lövsta Stud Farm has bought the six year old showjumping stallion Karmel vd Watering (Diamant de Semilly x Quickstar) The stallion will be shown by his usual rider Nick Vrins at the stallion tests in Flyinge next week.
Karmel vd Watering is approved in the Stud Book Zangersheide and he has already made some impressive results showing. Together with Nick Vrins he qualified for the finals in the World Championships for young horses at Zangersheide in Lanaken, Belgium. This year Karmel and Nick Vrins was in the lead of the Pavo Cup for young stallions, after two rounds. Due to the sale to Sweden he will not be competing in the third and finishing round.
Jens Fredricson, responsible for the development of the breeding of show jumpers at Lövsta Stud Farm, will continue to educate and compete Karmel vd Watering, in which he sees a new horse for big championships.
– I’m very happy to get the chance to educate and compete a horse like Karmel. He is a super talent with remarkable technique, fast reflexes and super rideability, Jens Fredricson says.

Lövsta Stud Farm has, during recent years, built up an interesting collection of stallions for showjumping and dressage breeding.
– Our strategy is to have stallions of different ages, which are active in the sport as well as in breeding, Malin Cohlin, head of the Stud farm, says.
She points out the importance for breeders to get to know and watch our stallions when they compete nationally before making the difficult choice of which stallions suits the mare best. The combination of genes from Diamant de Semilly and Quick Star should mean interesting possibilities for further development of the Swedish show jumping breeding.
