With highly convincing scores, the genetically interesting On The Spot was approved as a stallion by the KWPN last year. He received, among other things, nines for his canter, reflexes, ability, and rideability. Given his pedigree, this talent does not come as a surprise.


His mother, Kathelien W, showed an outstanding performance as a young horse in the IBOP test with 84 points. Subsequently, she competed internationally under Katharina Offel, just like her mother Elien, who was ridden at the 1.60-meter level by the same rider. The father of Kathelien is the influential stallion Cornet Obolensky, who was successful at the 1.60-meter level and is the sire of well-known horses such as Clooney, Cornet d’Amour, Coree, and Comme Il Faut. On The Spot’s grandmother, Elien, a daughter of Carambole, is the mother of the 1.40-meter horse Karelien W. The direct maternal line also produced the 1.40-meter horse Green Eggs And Hammer, the 1.45-meter horse Valentijn, and the 1.60-meter horses Ucelien and Paulien. The last two are offspring of the renowned Voltaire daughter Ecolien.


On The Spot’s father, the “all-time sire” Diamant de Semilly (son of Le Tot de Semilly x Elf III), has produced half-brothers like Emerald van ‘t Ruytershof, Don VHP, Dominator 2000 Z, and Diarado. Diamant had an impressive career, with a highlight being a gold team medal with Eric Levallois at the World Championships in Jerez de la Frontera. Since 2015, he has consistently ranked in the top three of the stallion rankings based on the total prize money won by his offspring. A remarkable 11% of his progeny jumps at the 1.60-meter level. The combination of this unprecedented sire with the stallions Cornet Obolensky, Carambole, and the highly athletic maternal line makes On The Spot genetically very interesting.


But it doesn’t stop at the genetic story alone. Externally, On The Spot is very well put together; he has a very expressive head, is long-lined, and has a very correct and well-developed foundation. He moves easily with a very light-footed canter, highlighting his ability to change easily. He shows a lot of overview, ability, athleticism, and jumps with very good technique. During the recent stallion competition, he consistently performed superbly with Willem Greve and was the overall reserve champion in the 1.10m category.

On The Spot is a stallion who, given his pedigree, natural talent, and attitude, could easily become a sire as influential as his father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
