Zilena, 2004, is a KWPN-NA registered mare by Iroko out of Tilena. Zilena is light bay with 2 white hind socks and a beautiful white blaze. Zilena’s father, Iroko is an international jumper, who stood in Holland at Team Nijhof. He is a keur stallion who produces superb conformation and athleticism. Iroko has produced quality jumpers as well as some excellent upper level dressage horses.
Zilena’s mother, Tilena is one of our foundation mares and can be seen on our mare reference page.
Zilena's 2008 foal, Dazzler, by Rousseau, was exceptional in that he was 1st premium at the Iron Spring Farm inspection, and ended up 2nd in the top five for the KWPN-NA keurings! Dazzler was sold to an FEI rider as a weanling. He was growing into an amazing horse but had a severe colick after a surgery for an undescended testicle and had to be euthanized.
Emilena, Zilena's 2009 filly by UB-40 was 1st premium at her keuring. We missed her ranking because we had trouble getting her mother and in turn her, in the trailer. The judges commented on what beautiful conformation she has. She is now a 7 year old who doubles as a broodmare and one of my riding horses. She is a forward thinking horse who needs a sensitive, talented rider who really wants to partner with her horse.
