Lyra is a 3 premie studbook mare with a full pedigree. She is out of a Star mare by Ulke (Ylse Nienke). Ylse Nienke comes out of the multi champion  Model mare Maaike Nienke H. Maaike Nienke H. became 2 times Champion of the Netherlands in Tandem driving together with her brother Gebrand who received in his Sport career, 8 Championships in total in front of the Sjees!!!!! Maaike Nienke was also very successful at the keurings. She received 10 first premies in total in her life!!!!

Maaike Nienke (Lyra's grandmother) is also the mother of the Champion showdriving friesian from this year, Andries H ( a Goffert son).

The Mother of the approved stallion, Bendert 381, Odina star+pref is also a half sister to Maaike Nienke!!!

The approved Stallion Rik ( Oltman x Reitse)is also very close related to Meike Nienke.

This mare line is well known as top producer of Sport horses  and show driving world champions.

 Sadly, Lyra's  previous owner died two years ago in an accident. His son took over Lyra and used her extensively for driving. He never bred her, so her Mewe's foal will be her first!
Lyra is , very light in the mouth and moves easily off the leg of the rider (not lazy) .

And even a child can  navigate Lyra through traffic, pulling a carriage:)

She is really FUN to drive! She is also very good in a pair.

Lyra is 100% safe in traffic, and on the trail.


Mewes 438 (Teeuwis x Oege) will be the father of her foal that will be born around the last week May/first week June 2010. Mewes 438 was top 4 Stallions in the Stallion Show in Leeuwarden this year.

Lyra. X Mewes 438 = 4.49% (Inbreeding for Lyra's foal due in 2010)


Lyra has been to the Keuring  and just missed Star in 2008.

Her scores where excellent:

Breeding type: 6.5

Build: 7

Walk: 7

Trot: 6.5


Lyra is a beautiful mare  from the  Holtrop family breeding program. Many many top quality sport horses have come from their breeding line. Not only is Lyra  a beautiful mare with an excellent walk, she has a nice extended trot!  Her pedigree makes her very attractive for and  breeding program, and her movement makes her a desirable horse to enjoy both  riding and driving:)

We think  Lyra will make STER this year when tried, which will then make her a FULL PEDIGREE STER MARE!!  ( and her price will increase accordingly).

Not only is this 5 yr old mare excellent to ride and drive, the bonus is her foal  by Mewes, due in the spring of 2010....making Lyra an excellent 2 for 1 value!!!
