About & Performance - The well put together Nibali van het Eikenhof impresses with his strength, and limitless ability combined with clean technique and quick reflexes. Nibali van het Eikenhof was victorious as a four and five year old several times in jumping tests with grades up to 8.6. As a six-year-old, he made the step into international sport in 2019 and was already able to complete 1.40m jumping flawlessly. He placed among others in Spangenberg and at the World Cup in Lanaken. The first foal year in 2019 impressively underlined Nibali's potential as a refiner in show jumping breeding.
Sire - Gemini CL xx which is highly valued in the Benelux countries is the clone of the top international horse Gem Twist xx, who won single and team silver at the Olympic Games in 1988 under Greg Best / USA and was single fourth at WEG in Stockholm in 1990. In his career, the exceptional stallion won $ 800,000 on the jumping course as a thoroughbred. As a gelding, he could not anchor his valuable genes in breeding himself.
Damline - Damsire Toulon was internationally successful for France in many Grand Prizes under Hubert Bourdy. The victory in the Global Champions Tour in Sao Paulo (BRA) is also unforgettable. He is considered one of the best jumping sires in the world, he currently ranks fourth in the WBFSH ranking (2019). Kannan in the third generation was with Francois Mathy jun. and Michel Hécart internationally successful, delivered over 200 international 1.60m show jumpers, including Olympic champion Nino des Buissonets / Steve Guerdat (SUI), and has been in the top group of the WBFSH world rankings for years. Fourth generation Lys de Darmen was one of the most sustainable mare makers in Belgium. The high-class Hanoverian Ferdigano (by Winnetou-Lugano I-Agram) completes the pedigree. Nibali's mother is successfully used in international youngster tours. With four internationally successful offspring, Nibali's third mother, Nolyska, makes a special recommendation for the inheritance strength of the strain.
