This stunning mare is the first foal out of Bonita LVP. She has top class, proven jumping bloodlines on both sides of pedigree, superb conformation and is very athletic!

Bonita LVP Z, who is by the exceptional ” Eurocommerce Berlin” out of a Lord mare, was purchased from LVP Stables in Belgium. Her dam is bred out of line 890, which is one of the best Holsteiner jumping lines.

Bonita was placed 11th out of 107 contestants at the 2006 “Championship for Fillies” at Studbook Zangersheide. Her dam’s sire is Lord and via Farnese, Landgraf I and Consul she goes back on to Mirte who is the foundation dam of this very strong performance line.

Her sire Eurocommerce Berlin consists of the best Holstein showjumping lineages combined with a powerful damline. Sire Cassini I (by Capitol I) caused sensation in the international show-jumping sport under Franke Sloothaak. And in breeding Cassini I has been at least as successful with a series of offspring active in the international sport such as; Ingmar, Coco, Cumano, Carino and Olympic. Remarkable is also the fact that Berlin’s dam Estia (by Caretino) has been successful at the highest level of showjumping under her sporting name Cathleen W, ridden by Marc Wirths. This mare definitely did not get her jumping genes by accident. Her grand-dam Ostia (by Freeman xx) became world-famous under the name of Frimella. Ridden by respectively Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst and Willi Melliger this noble mare cantered many laps of honor. After her sports-career Frimella produced, among others, the international show-jumping horse Lorina II (by Lombard).

The family of Berlin, Holstein lineage 890, is one of the most successful sport lineages in Holsteiner breeding. Other reputable members of this family are for instance the famous Grand Prix show-jumpers; Feodora, Crocodile Dandy, Corinessa, Quebec, Tinkas Lad and Caitano.

Corofino II was approved in 1998 he went on to do his 30 day stallion test in Schlieckau he received a 10 for character 9 for Temperament 10 for jumping. As a five year old Corofino II qualified for the Bundeschampionat (German young horse championships) where he won one of the qualifications for the final with a final note of 9.

After this Corofino II continued in sport with Thomas Konle in the breeding region of Baden Wittenburg and over the years he accumulated more than 125 wins and placing’s up to 1.60cm.

In 2009 Corofino II returned to Holstein and was ridden by Janne Meyer with fantastic results including a 3rd in the Tasdorf Grand Prix, a 2nd in Balve, the German Championships and winning the Breitenburg Grand Prix in Holstein in which the field included the Beijing silver medalist Rolf-G’ran Bengtsson on his Olympic mount Ninja.


Lafayette MVNZ is doing very well with her new rider coming 1st/2nd/3rd in the small tour at the 2017 Yalambi Spring Jumping Classic in Western Australia (11/2017) and finishing 12th in the Young Rider Championship at the Australian Championships 2018.
