Emerald van het Ruytershof, the son of Diamant de Semilly and Carthina Z, hardly needs any introduction, but we still like to put some of his sporting achievements in the spotlight: 1st CSI5*-W Bordeaux, 2° CSI5* LGCT Cannes, 2nd CSI-W World cup Final Paris, 2nd CSI5* GCT Doha, 3rd Nations Cup, 3rd CSI5* S'Hertogenbosch, 4th CSI5* GCT/GCL Rome, 5° CSIO5*-NC Final, Barcelona, 1st CSI5* GCT/GCL Chantilly, 2nd CSI5* Versailles, 4th CSI5* GCT/GCL Miami FL, 4th CSI5* GCT/GCL London, 6th CSI5 * GCT/GCL Valkenswaard, 6th CSI5* GCT/GCL Miami FL,2nd place World Cup Final Gothenburg, Olympic Games Rio: Individual + Team final, 1st Nations Cup Rotterdam, 3rd CSIO5* Rotterdam, and so on.

Besides a glorious sports career, Emerald is also very successful in breeding. He is father of Igor, Jaguar VD Berghoeve, Jeunesse van het Paradijs, Ilias Van 't Vlasmeer, I'm Special De Muze, Orphea HQ, Newberry Balia, Nikka VD Bisschop, etc.
Stakkato, "Besser geht es nicht". The Spartan son already caught the attention as a young horse. At the Bundeschampionat for 5-year-old horses he was praised for his bascule, finishing and reflexes, and he also stood out for his workability and enormous fighting spirit in the ring. He closed the championship winning with the perfect 10, after which he climbed to the very highest level under Eva Bitter. They won the Deutsche Meisterschaften twice and jumped into the top 10 of a World Cup (final) several times. In 2007 he was proclaimed Stallion of the Year.
The result of this Stakkato combined with the Hauptstutbuch mare and Hanoverian Mare of the Year 2010 Cecile (by Calypso II) out of Holsteiner Stamm 6225, is the mare Sunny Girl la Magnifica. That combination has already proven to be successful several times. After all, Sunny Girl is the full sister of Sundari, Satisfaction FRH, Satisfaction I, Satisfaction II, Argelith Sambuca and Spimex. Sundari jumped successfully under Henrik von Eckkerman and Philipp Weishaupt, with places of honor in the World Cup of Bordeaux, Donaueschingen and Dortmund. Her son Charlie 1701 (by Chaman) recently won the Bundeschampionat for 5-year-old horses.
Also other descendants of Carthina Z, such as Emeralds full sister Diamanthina, Fragile Van 't Meulenhof, Ilusionata Van 't Meulenhof, L'innocence Van 't Meulenhof and the only 8-year-old Nixon Van 't Meulenhof climbed their way up to the 1m60 level. Together they are the figureheads of one of the world's most coveted mother lines.
Silver Dream's half sister, Raphael's Girl, is dam of the show jumper Belony. Under Michael Cristofoletti, this Belony already gained several places of honor at the World Cup level.
Smilla is mother of Bright Dream 3, active at 1m35 level with Eliott Gordon, the 4-year-old Levis Z and the 7-year-old Isotta v. Inliner, active at 1m35 level.
