Cello v/d bischop (cicero)x Eldorado van de zes...

This is an incredibly exciting find…


his dam is full sister of World Cup jumper “geneve r” ridden by matt sampson and sold by us as a 4yo, he’s one of the best horses in the uk right now….


we recently sold this lads brother a year older by starpower who was the best jumper I saw last year and a fabulous prospect being produced now for this years 4yos by max Routeledge.


this guy will make 16.2hh, is a real athlete and looks a real jumper in his first efforts.


his sire Cello vd Bisschop Z was one of the highlights of the BWP Stallion Show this year. The attractive grey stallion stood out with his powerful way of jumping, combined with a fantastic jumping technique and his stunning appearance. Cello’s pedigree is one to dream of: sire Cicero Z is currently one of world’s best producers of showjumpers and grandsire Stakkato has become a Hanoverian legend. However, the damline of Cello vd Bisschop Z is what makes his pedigree really special; the Cello’s pedigree goes back to the famous Usha van ‘t Roosakker.

Cello’s dam Mandy vd Bisschop is a daughter of the promising mare Josephine vd Bisschop. This daughter of the Grand Prix jumping Tornedo (by Darco) jumped at 1.45m level at a young age ridden by Italy’s Alberto Zorzi and nowadays Josephine is competed at international level by France’s Jeanne Sadran. In breeding, Josephine vd Bisschop already produced the BWP approved stallion Obus vd Bisschop.

Great-granddam Evita van ‘t Roosakker also produced a number of international showjumpers, including Isaac vd Bisschop ridden by Hansueli Sprunger and Jackson vd Bisschop ridden by Michael Hughes. Then we go back to the mare who started it all; Usha van ‘t Roosakker – the Chin Chin-daughter who jumped at Grand Prix level with among others Marlon Zanotelli and Eiken Sato. In breeding, Usha became famous as dam of Cella (by Cento) of Ben Maher, who won individually silver and team gold at the European Championships in Herning. But also Equador and Emperio van ‘t Roosakker, who both jump at Grand Prix level with respectively Frédéric David and Alexandra Crown. This damline also produced famous showjumpers like Electra van ‘t Roosakker (Jos Lansink & Janika Sprunger), Falco van ‘t Roosakker (Jérôme Guéry), Erco van ‘t Roosakker (Lorenzo de Luca), Dulhan de la Roque (Reynald Angot) , Giorgio van ‘t Hagenhof (Quentin Judge), Happy Wandor van ‘t Roosakker (Carlos Ramirez) and many others.

Cello vd Bisschop Z seems to be an asset for Dutch breeding in every way; top pedigree, top damline and top talent.



this is the sort nearly impossible to find…
