Lauwersmeer Laka

Lauwersmeer was my 16hh Gelders stallion by Farmer out of the full sister of IJsselmeer, Gisela. I never offered Lauwersmeer for licensing, because I thought he wouldn't get licensed anyway. He was quite compact and small, but a great mover.

Lauwersmeer competed successfully with Chelsey Sibley on FEI Grand Prix level also. He left behind some promising sport horses and a couple of really well moving broodmares, of which I still own two: Ikakola and Zalsa.

His accomplishments:


  • USDF Intermediare Freestyle Champion – KWPN-NA All Breeds
  • USDF Intermediare Freestyle Open Reserve Champion (Nationally)


  • Int-I Freestyle Reserve Champion CDS & USDF Region 7 
  • Int-II USDF Region 7 Champion


  • Int-I Freestyle Champion USEF/USDF Region 7


  • Int-I Freestyle Reserve Champion USEF/USDF Region 7 


Bravo, registered name Bruiser, was my Dutch Harness horse stallion. Bravo is a very expressive mover, which brings traits to the table that suit many of my mares well. Like height, length in the body and a more vertical neck direction. 

Bravo is not licensed, so his offspring got register B papers with the KWPN -NA. By taking them to the keuring, they can be moved up the full book if the judges approve. 

I sold Bravo to Top Shelf Frisians in Iowa in July. He will remain a breeding stallion there.


Lopaka I bred by crossing UB40 with my Gelders mare Bizou (IJsselmeer x Formateur). Lopaka is a very good mover and a big show off, but he has a very easygoing temperament. 

Lopaka is in training with Josh Albrecht of Coalcyn Equestrian, LLC in Oroville, CA. He will be sold soon.
