    Horseland's Cracker is the first colt known to us to carry three lines of Dyrin Tina. He also is the first colt known to me to carry two lines of Sumrin Tristan. His mother Sumrin Twilight won her class as a foal and we only sold her under the condition that we would get a foal back out of here. As Twilight sadly died due to a freak accident, Cracker will be her only offspring. We were very happy to have him back, even though he stayed behind quite a bit due to being an orphan. 

    His sire is the multiple champion stallion Vanda's Cassanova, who is by Royal Welsh male champion Vechtzicht's Hywel out of Coelenhages Carmen, who was one of the best daughters of Sumrin Tristan. Carmen's dam is by National Champion stallion Roman Springlight, who was a Rhydyfelin bred stallion that left international and national champions. Glenfield Chocolate Cream almost made it to national champion in the Netherlands and she is by Royal Welsh champion Glenfield Chocolate Soldier and his strongly line bred to Clan Pip.

    Sumrin Twilight was by the stockgetter Kai Midas, who came out of Austrian champion Sadiqui Little Gift, who was out of many times champion Highland Little Gift. Midas's father Aelvengrey Merlynne comes from strong Rhydyfelin, Twyford and Llanerch lines. Twilight's dam was Waardhoeve's Tirion, who was a top riding pony in her prime, besides being uniquely bred. She bred us 4 winners, inclusive of Twilight. Cracker will need time to recover from his poor start in life, but we have good hopes that he will show his great parentage and will bring a new infuse of valued lines to our stud.

    At the moment, his best qualities that he has been able to show us, are his very kind disposition, his beautiful head, his long neck, his determination to survive and his free movements that he likes to show regularly. Cracker was shown at the WPCV Premium show in 2016 and stood third in his class behind Sumrin Topelius

    Born May 24, 2013

    On May 24, 2013, Tatum gave birth to a filly. We named her Sumrin Saint Mary, as her mother spent a lot of time in 2012 at Rhesfair stud in the town Saint Mary Church in Wales.
    Her sire is the stallion Rhesfair Joe Chwedl, who has won championships in Wales and was 5th at the Royal Welsh show 2011 in a very strong three year old colt class. Joe is by champion stallion Dukeshill Magnum out of twice national champion Caerheulog Lady Jane.

    Sumrin Saint Mary was first shown at the local show of Lierop fokpaardendag as a filly foal. She won her class and was declared filly foal champion of the show.

    As a two-year old, she was entered at the spring show of the WPCV in Houten. Under Mr. Gwyndaf Edwards of Fronbach stud. Saint Mary won her class and ended up reserve youngstock champion of the day.

    Taru gave us a beautiful filly foal, Sumrin Satu on April 28, 2017

    We hope that Saint Mary is in foal again to Sumrin Tysilio, due to foal around June 12, 2017

  • Sumrin Satu

    Sumrin Satu (photoby Kim Renders, July 15, 2017).Born April 28, 2017.

    Satu was born 2 weeks early, she holds a lot of firsts for us:

    - Satu is the first pony out of her line with 5 generations of Sumrin breeding, 6 generations having been present at Sumrin.

    - Satu is the first Sumrin filly by a Sumrin stallion out of a Sumrin mare. We were very happy to find Sumrin Tysilio again after having disappeared for a number of years.

    - Satu is the first pony with the Sumrin prefix to be born in Limburg.

     -Satu is the first foal line bred back to Sumrin Taru, one of the most succesful mares we have bred in our history. The name Satu means "fairytale"in Finnish and is a synonym to Taru. As Sumrin Taru passed away in January 2017, we hope she will get the quality of her illustrious ancestor. 

    One funny coincidence: The longest placename in Europe is a town by the name of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, which translates into English as "Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave". Hence, once more Tysilio and Saint Mary come together.

    Sumrin Tatum O'Neill
    Sumrin Tatum O'Neill

    born June 18, 2009

    Tatum is by the stockgetter Kai Midas. Midas was awarded first premium in 2008 and has already thrown good stock, amongst which a national best three year old. Kai Midas has three crosses of the famous Twyford Gurkha and his full brother Twyford Gendarme. Kai Midas' dam is a big winner in Austria and his grandmother was many times champion in Germany. The maternal line of Midas goes back to Revel Jewel, dam of Revel Jeeves.

    As we had to downsize the stud, due to health constraints, we came for the tough choice to see who is going. We did make the choice to keep her daughter Sumrin Saint Mary as well as her maternal aunt Sumrin Timea at the time, even if Tatum might be the most promising breeding mare of the three. We are very happy that she ended up with the young breeder Jelmer Couperus, to start up his new stud and be a partner with the buckskin stallion Twisthoeve (G) Rhydaman.

    Tatum produced the following for Jelmer Couperus:

    On May 29, 2017, Sumrin Tatum O'Neill was purchased back by the family van Gestel to ultimately accompany Sumrin Tulip Festival. Until September 2018, she is leased out to Ute Franke of Sharonahoeve Stud to breed a foal out of her.

    Tatum's name is misspelled intentionally. Her pedigree is at the bottom of the page, with links to pages of her ancestors on this site.

  • Sumrin Topelius

    Sumrin Topelius (photo by Wil Smeets April 2017)

    chestnut, born April 17, 2015. Sumrin Topelius is the first chestnut colt we have bred in many years, and in fact the first foal ever where we knew the color in advance, as he has two chestnut parents.

    Topelius was shown once as a foal and gained a reserve championship at the Lierop show.

    Topelius was shown again as a yearling, at the WPCV Premium show in April 2016 and was placed second behind Heuvelrug Hallmark, who went on to win the Royal Welsh show yearling colt class later in the year. (Photo below, by Vivian Hesen, April 2016)

    Topelius was also shown at the international show in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium in April 2017. He won a mixed class (two year old colts and filles section A).

    We see a future for Topelius as a stallion. Topelius is now runnign out in summer grazing. We intend to present him at the 2018 Stallion Inspection in Ermelo (February). He will be available for lease as we do not have enough mares to use him for.

    Topelius has an abundance of substance and is a very good mover. His attractive color is certainly a good bonus!

    Sumrin Tulip FestivalSumrin Tulip Festival
    Born: 2000
    Breeder/Owner: J. van Gestel


    Sumrin Tulip Festival is one of the best mares we have bred. As a three year old, she won her class at a regional show. As a four year old, she has already proven to be able to throw a quality foal. Tulip's biggest assets are a very classical type with very strong movements. At the 2009 National show, Sumrin Tulip Festival was 2nd in a large class of 25 mares, only to be beaten by Vrilkhoven's Leslie (out of Sumrin Toendra). Tulip Festival has given the following foals at Sumrin:


    2004: Sumrin Toscane by Mulligens Domeniek
    2008: Sumrin Troye by Gulden Hoefs Vivaldi
    2009: Sumrin Tatum O'Neill by Kai Midas

    Tulip is now used for driving in harness by the van Gerwen family in Wenum-Wiesel (my sister Luce). They have decided not to breed from her. Her granddaughter Sumrin Saint Mary is still with us.
