His sire Manno (by Fabricius x Zakerno) needs no further introduction. He is declared keur and pref and currently he is the number 1 harness sire. His dam Himone is a daughter of Renovo. Her pedigree goes back to the famous foundation mare Janie. The show harness horses Geraldine, Jimono, Pablo, Tammy, Desiree, Hannes, Uroniem, Cansjo and Kariem all decsend from this bloodline as well as the top conformation mares Pimone and Rommy, both champions in the two-year-old category at the National Harness Day.
Vaandrager HBC is the only approved black son of Manno.

He has very much willingness to work, he has a very active and covering walk and has much to very much willingness to move. Vaandrager wants to go! His driver Henk Hammers knows how to guide his temperament better and better.
Vaandrager HBC has much to very much action in his front-leg and covers much ground. The use of his hind-legs is very good. The hindlegs of the stallion carry well and have much bending and impulsion.
The stallion has much to very much suspension.
His carriage and the bringing under of his hindquarters and making himself big and beautiful, is no problem to Vaandrager HBC. He shows endurance and has much "electricity” in his action.
In stance his front-leg is strikingly well placed to the front. A conformation characteristic which is often lacking in breeding. Vaandrager is growing in his skills and he has got plenty!



Eight first premium foals at various Central Selections.


Offspring inspection: In trot the foals carry their neck well, they have a good carriage and they come well back in their front. In trot they show balance and acceleration.
