Iconic Sires and Breeding Services offers South African stallion and mare owners a wealth of international experience in the equine breeding.

Nixon van’t Meulenhof

One of the most promising and exciting young stallions of his age with an exceptional pedigree.


Nixon is being brought on gently jumping the young indoor stallion competitions in Belgium, but he is already proving to be a force to be reckoned with having already racked up a number of wins and been crowned the 5-year-old Champion of the Pavo Stallion Competition. Under his new rider, Harrie Smolders, he is definitely one to take seriously. His power, presence, technique, and intelligence make him an exciting prospect for the future.


Sire, Denzel van’t Meulenhof is a young stallion by the multiple international winner, Marius Claudius. Denzel’s dam is the famous mare Narcotique de Muze (Quidam de Revel) who also jumped at the highest level. In addition, she is the dam of 3 approved stallions. Besides Denzel van ‘t Meulenhof, these are also Jenson van’ t Meulenhof (Vagabond de la Pomme) and Iron Man van ‘t Meulenhof (Parco). Several sons of Denzel van’t Meulenhof have already been approved for breeding, including the vice BWP Inspection Champion in 2016 which has since joined the stables of Axel Verlooy and the KWPN approved Ipsthar, winner of the Stallion Competition for 5-year-olds in the Netherlands.

Nixon’s dam is Carthina Z (Carthago x Lys de Darmen). She is the dam of the famous stallion Emerald van’t Ruytershof (Diamant de Semilly), whose semen is also available through Iconic Sires, and Diamanthina van het Ruytershof (Diamant de Semilly). Both are active at the highest level. Carthina Z’s sire, Carthago, was a two time Olympian and won the Nations Cups in Aachen, Rotterdam and La Baule, as well as many Grand Prixs.
