Pony Lane Farm's Dulf van den Bisschop

Pony Lane Farm’s Dulf van den Bisschop has an extensive show record in both Europe and the United States, most recently with Kelsey Thatcher and Giavanna Rinaldi in the Grand Prix ring. The 16.2 hand, 14-year-old stallion recently retired but remains available for breeding at Our Day Farm.

His progeny is already making waves in national and global arenas. During 2016, Dulf’s 9-year-old offspring “Harley vd Bisschop” (Dulf x Coronado) won the $380K CSI5* Rolex Grand Prix in Tryon with Nicola Philippaerts. The pair competed for Belgium at the 2017 FEI World Cup Finals and won the International Omaha Jumping Grand Prix at FEI World Cup™ Finals.

In April of 2017, 10-year-old Hannah (Dulf van den Bisschop x Kashmir van Schuttershof) was victorious in the €200,000 Grand Prix CSIO5* in Lummen with Olympian Steve Guerdat of Switzerland.
