29 years old


We bought Vanja (pedigree name 'Utopia') when she was 3 years old and, so called, 'green' (not ridden). We tought her everything ourselves and she became M-dressage and M-jumping.  

Especially cross country she liked most! She won a lot of prices, most of these with my daughter Edith, who was the one doing competitions. Now, 27 years old, she has retired and she lives on a farm for old horses, Stompwijk. She now lives the life which is natural for horses: in a herd together with other old horses and from May until October she is at grass.

During winter she has a large outside-box overviewing the fields.


Vanja is a daughter of the stallion Luitenant General, which is the son of the English thoroughbred Cartoonist.
