Nayade STV was bred and raised by the well known dressage farm STV (Stoeterij 't Vierspan) at Handel in the Netherlands.
She was born in 1995 and purchased by VDWhorses mid 2000. Since then she is trained by dressage rider
Joyce van der Wiel and currently they are competing at Z-level dressage. Nayade STV is an eye catching grey mare of 1.71m
and likes working under saddle. She is intelligent and has a wonderful character, probably thanks to her 69%

Nayade STV is full sister to Romulus DHS, alias Remus under young rider Marin Kuhn
from StarWest New Berlin Illinois USA. The combination was competing at level 4 dressage. DHS is short for 'Dancing Horse Stables'
belonging to Mrs. Diane Hermus in the Netherlands.
Nayade STV' sire is Argus and her dam's sire is Uniform.
Argus, son of Pion, performed very well at his
KWPN performance test (3rd of 24) and was exported to the USA immediately thereafter. He was the only horse in the world
that was simultanuously competing in Dressage on international level and in Show Jumping at Grand Prix level.
Pion brought two other well known KWPN approved stallions, Aktion
and Democraat. Both are in the top-10 of the KWPN dressage index. After his great sport career in the USA
Argus was purchased by STV and came back to the Netherlands.
After a number of years standing at STV stud he returned to North America where
he spent his last years at Sabir Springs Farm Inc.,
Rock Creek B.C. Canada owned by Lori Skrip. Argus
died on a heart attack at the age of 23 years old on Friday September 29, 2005
The well known Uniform dam sire of Romulus DHS received the 'preferent'-predicate
that is awarded by the KWPN very rare to their stallions having proved to produce performance offspring repeatedly.
Many children of Uniform perform at the highest level of dressage, nationally as well as
Jade STV/keur is dam of Romulus DHS. In 2001 Jade STV
scored 118th on the KWPN TOP-250 of their best promissing
dressage breeding mares. She also received 8th's for step, trot and canter during her performance test
at Deurne. Dam of Jade STV is the well known mare Lilium
/keur, pref, prest. Lilium, one of the 3 foundation mares of STV, is dam of
Variant and through Variant granddam of
Junior STV (by Uniform) and
Negro (by Ferro).
Two other performing daughters of Lilium are Diamant STV /keur, pref, prest, sport (dr)
(by Uniform), full sister to Jade STV, and Tamonia STV /ster, prest (by Afrikaner xx),
full sister to Variant. Furthermore Lilium
delivered two other sons, Goodluck STV and Briljant (both by Uniform)
that reached 2nd round of the KWPN stallion selection. Diamant STV delivered Mozaiek STV (by Iglesias)
who was selected for the World Championship of young dressage horses at Arnhem in 1999 and the stallion
Saffier van D (s.Donnehall) who was appointed for the final KWPN stallion performance test at Ermelo in 2002.
Tamonia STV delivered Hattrick (by Uniform) and Jerssey (by Uniform)
both performing on national dressage level.
Dam line of Nayade STV:
The dam line of Ariyade VDW goes back on Hestia 12.280hbSgldt, the foundation mare of the KWPN performance
breeding family 236. This bloodline has already produced several KWPN approved stallions. I.e. Variant,
Guelderson (UK), Monarch and Organist. In the summer of 2002 a son (by Donnerhall) out of Diamant STV was appointed
for and went to the KWPN stallion performance test at Ermelo. Diamant STV is a full sister to
Jade STV, granddam of Ariyade VDW. Detailed information on this performance dam line
is provided on link KWPN mareline 102 / breeding family 236
Taken all above family facts into account the potential of Nayade STV is quite promising from both the keurings point of view as well as from the perfromance point of view.
So far, July 2003, she has shown breeding and sport results in line with the expectations.
Achievements of Nayade STV:
--- Nayade STV was only part time available for dressage training and competition due to:
----- a lameness returning regularly as a consequence of a hoof-injury occured during raising,
----- she is a valuable breed mare delivering quality offspring. I.e. see elite mare Vayade VDW,
--- Despite her part time availability Nayade STV and her rider Joyce van de Wiel managed to compete at dressage Z1 level (3rd),
Remark: Due to the returning lameness Nayade STV stopped dressage competition mid 2007 and became a full time brood mare with which
we are very happy!
