Karamel van de Watering was top placed in the Swedish stallion test 2016 being judged as having a rhythmic and balanced jump with good back technique, fast reaction, and willingness to jump. His temperament was described as "cooperative, fearless, sensible and energetic". The test riders were very fond of him and considered him to be a horse with a real future.
Karmel van de Watering participated in the final of the Young Horse World Championships for 5-year-olds in 2015 ridden by Nick Vrins. As a six-year-old he led the third and final round of the prestigious Belgian Pavo Cup for showjumpers before being sold to Sweden in February 2016.
In 2016 Jens Fredricson took over the reins and the pair delivered first class rounds up to 140 level, and among other achievements were placed fourth in the Breeders Trophy for 6-year-old horses. In 2017 the partnership secured placements up to and including CSI2*. Throughout 2018 and 2019 Karmel continued his strong development as a show jumper competing up to the 150-jumping level.
In February 2020 they won the CSI2* Grand Prix during the Norwegian Horse Festival in Lilleström. A couple of weeks later it was time again for a win! This time the CSI3* Grand-Prix in Herning.
Karmel van de Watering is part of the Swedish Equestrian Federation's development program for talented young horses, "Swedish Jumping Sport 2025".
The offspring have been shown to have the same nimble and elastic jumping technique as Karmel van de Watering. They have a good riding ability and temperament.
Karmel van de Watering's sire Diamant de Semilly, ridden by Eric Levallois, won team gold during the 2002 World Cup and was also ninth placed individually. The following year, the team silver was won at the European Championships and the stallion has countless Grand Prix victories on his merit list. He was selected for the Olympics in 2004, but an injury stopped him from participating. Diamant de Semilly had an exceptional career thanks to his good technique and scope, qualities he largely inherited from his prestigious line. Diamant de Semilly is top ranked in the world ranking of the best breeding stallions in jumping (WBFSH). He has a large number of offspring performing at the elite level and has produced over 70 approved sons.
Karmels dam Samba des Etisse's has a strong presentation and lineage. Like her dam due to her impressive lineage she was used directly for breeding so did not compete in the sport. From the grand dam come many offspring with merits up to international Grand Prix and two approved sons. She is also the dam to the elite horse Quetam des Etisses who competed in the World Cup 2014. The dam line has left the approved stallion Prince d´Incoville, who competed with Hervé Godignon in the international Grand Prix.
The grand sire Quick Star (Meredith Michaels) competed at the highest level himself and produced brilliant competition horses, such as Big Star (Nick Skelton), Orient Express HDC (Patrice Delaveau) and Star Power (Ian Millar). The grand dam on the sire’s side Stella has left the World Cup horse Olisco. The grand dams’ sire Quidam de Revel ridden by Hervé Godignon has a team bronze and an individual fourth place in the 1992 Olympics. Quidam de Revel is a strong producer of elite performing horses having for example ten offspring competing at the World Cup 2002. He has several approved sons around Europe including Avon 1177 and Quite Easy 958.
Karmel van de Watering is an approved stallion by SWB, Oldenburg and Zangersheide.
