VDL Groep Zidane, Emerald and Glock’s Cognac Champblanc all add N.O.P. to their names as they have been taken into the Dutch Olympic Horse Foundation - Stichting N.O.P.

With Leopold van Asten in the saddle, VDL Groep Zidane became Dutch Champion last year while Emerald had a great 2015 season under Harrie Smolders to win the World Cup in Washington as one of their highlights. Glock’s Cognac Champblanc was together with Gerco Schröder part of the gold medal winning Dutch team at last year’s Europeans in Aachen.

Zenith SFN N.O.P. (Jeroen Dubbeldam), Glock’s London N.O.P. (Gerco Schröder), VDL Zirocco Blue N.O.P. (Jur Vrieling), VDL Groep Verdi TN N.O.P. (Maikel van der Vleuten) and Carambole N.O.P. (Willem Greve) are already horses supported by the foundation, which goal is to keep top horses with medal potential in the Netherlands – with the financial support from the Dutch Equestrian Federation’s main sponsor Rabobank.
