That’s Life jumps internationally in Europe with Dutch rider Pia-Luise Aufrecht, while Victor E is winning at 1.45m and placing in Grand Prix in the United States. Victor E is owned by Windsor Show Stables and stands at Hyperion Stud.
Dakina (Amor/Nimmerdor/Uppercut xx) has produced three approved stallions – Lexicon, Hofnar, and Carthino Z – as well as the elite mare Calina Z who won team gold and individual silver at the European Championships, as well as producing the 1.60 jumper Zekina Z. Lexicon was a successful Grand Prix horse with Ray Texel and Helen McNaught, while Carthino Z is considered one of the most talented young stallions in Holland. In the 2007 WBFSH Young Horse Championships, Dakina’s son Carthino was Reserve Champion of the 7 Year Olds, while her granddaughter Zekina was Champion of the 5 Year Olds and now a regular in the 1.60 Global Champions tour.
Selina herself earned her sport predicate, successfully competing in the Young Horse classes and CSI 1.45 level in Europe before being exported to the USA.

Mermus R offspring are noted for fantastic take-off and abundant talent. They jump very carefully and with excellent hindquarter technique, which Selina has clearly inherited.
