2022 | Dark bay | KWPN Royal Dutch Warmblood |Glock's Zonik x Danciano
Skydancer is a daughter of our mare Danciana (Danciano x Florestan I) and Glock's Zonik.
The late GLOCK’s Zonik joined Zack, Romanov and Don Schufro to count among the most influential stallions in Danish horse breeding. GLOCK’s Zonik thrilled the spectators at his debut in 2015 (Indoor Brabant) as a 7-year-old, winning the Small Tour with over 78%. He took the Small Tour in the 2016 Dutch Championships with a score of 81.70%. As a 4-year-old, he was impressive at the Danish Dressage Championships and won with a total of 9.3 points, where his trot was awarded a 10.0. GLOCK’s Zonik also won the Danish Stallion Licensing. He stood out for his power, elasticity and impulsion and his natural elevation.
GLOCK’s Zonik N.O.P. made his international tournament debut under Edward Gal in the summer of 2017 and became Dutch champion for three years in a row. The dark bay, strong-moving stallion achieved top results through great performances at the Dressage World Cup stages in London Olympia, Amsterdam, 's-Hertogenbosch and Paris. In 2018 he competed in his first World Cup final and was in the Dutch team both at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon (USA) and the European Championships in Rotterdam (NED). Through his great performance, GLOCK’s Zonik N.O.P. contributed significantly to the team silver medal gained at the European Championships in Rotterdam. In 2020, during Jumping Amsterdam 2020, he scored for the first time above 85%. Consequently GLOCK’s Zonik has earned the suffix N.O.P. (Nederlands Olympiade Paard). In 2021, Hans Peter Minderhoud took this strongly moving stallion on and achieved many victories, of which at the CDI4* in Le Mans (FRA).
Zonik's offspring exhibit great generosity and strength of movement and possess athletic proportions. His progeny Zucchero and Zum Glück RS2 were first and third at the 2018 National Championships in Warendorf. Zucchero was fourth in the World Breeding Dressage Championships for 5-year-old Dressage Horses in Ermelo. In 2019, Zucchero became the outstanding World Champion. Another son of Zonik, Zhaplin Langholt, took third place and Zum Glück RS2 won the National Championship in Warendorf 2019. Half-brother My Blue Hors Santiano (Sezuan x Romanov) was approved during the autumn stallion test with 87.5 points.
Skydancer is growing out very nicely. She is located in the Netherlands at Van Baalen Farms in Brakel, where she lives out in the pasture with other young mares. She has the most beautiful face and expression with a curious but also slightly shy personality- not the alpha but she will stand up for herself in the group. When she needs anything done with her like a trim, she cooperates and is not pushy or dominant at all. Just a real lady! She isn't tall and won't be tall, but a nice elegant ladies horse of about 16.1hh, we expect. Her gaits are far above average, showing a lot of suppleness but also balance and power, with an exquisite hind leg stepping far under herself and lots of bend in the joints, use of the back. A very elegant, light footed and promising dressage horse.
