Harley, J. Kuerten

Harley’s pedigree is among the best for sport and breeding. His sire line contains three international jumping stallions in a row: Heartbreaker, Carthago and Caletto I.

Dam Larthago won several 1.40m and 1.50m classes. Larthago is also mother of three other approved stallions Cevin Z (AES Approved and 1.50m jumper), Casago (KWPN approved) and Dimitri Z (Zangersheide approved and 1.40m jumper). And she also brought the 1.50m jumpers Hopes Are High Z, Soren Z and the 1.45m jumper, Uncle Sam.


Harley VDL has been highly successful at international level with Jessica Kürten. In the Grand Prix of Sainte Cecile he finished 2nd, then took 3rd in the Grand Prix of Neurenberg. He also won international classes in La Coruña, Aalst and Outdoor Gelderland. In Den Bosch, Harley was victorious in the prestigious VHO Trophy. In addition, he was crowned Champion in the 1.30m/1.35m Stallion Competition and was placed 3rd in the 1.45m of La Coruña, 4th in another 1.45m of La Coruña, 6th in a 1.45m class in La Coruña, 6th in the 1.45m of Paris, 7th in the 1.50m of Paris, 10th in the 1.50m of Stockholm etc. As a 7-year old Harley won the stallion competition class Z / ZZ.


Harley's offspring have achieved many successes at the international level. Descendants such as Charly Chaplin S (Darragh Kenny and Kerry McCahill), Constable II (Laura Kraut), Doloris (Santiago Lambre), Camelot (Kevin Beerse), Davidson (Callan Solem) and Arlando (Roelof Bril) jump at international 1.60m level. In 2018 there was a third place for Davidson in the WEF Challenge Cup in Wellington and this former Dutch champion in the 7-yr-olds also finished fourth in the Grand Prix of Saugerties.

Harley has been awarded ‘Preferent’ by the KWPN and the NRPS thanks to the outstanding performances of his offspring in the international sport.

Harley has several approved sons, approved for the KWPN were Jenssen VDL and Justice HL became ex-aequo champion of the performance test in the spring and Jubel ES was the performance champion of the autumn test.
