Dutch Under 25 Grand Prix rider Zoe Kuintjes has received the ride on a new young stallion, the 5-year old KWPN registered stallion Olaf Official.

Olaf Official is by Henkie out of Diamant (by Sirius x Elegant) and is bred by G. Roerdinkholder and was originally named Olaf.

Premium Gelderlander Stallion

The bay stallion was approved as a premium Gelderlander stallion at the 2022 KWPN Stallion Licensing. 

Originally owned by Aris van Manen, Olaf was bought by Daniel Mosterdijk after the first phase of the licensing. He had him NRPS approved (hence his third name, Happy Olaf) and the stallion became a top scorer in the Gelderlander stallion performance test, in which he is also driven in hand. 

Zoe Kuintjes

Horses.nl reported that the stallion has now been sold to Dave and Jennifer van Duijvenbode of Cayenne Stables for Zoe Kuintjes to ride as a dressage prospect. 

Van Duijvenbode primarily focuses on Friesians, but has recently expanded to warmbloods.
