Saretta was unable to compete herself due to a severe pasture injury in which she broke her coffin bone. However, her wonderful scores at breed approvals showed her potential. Saretta is by the Dutch sensation Olympic Ferro. Olympic Ferro competed in the 2000 Olympics earning a silver medal with his team. He again received the highest scores on the 2002 Dutch Olympic team. Olympic Ferro, champion of his performance test, in Germany, scored an 8.5 at the trot, 8.0 for ridability, and 8.5 for jumping. In addition to producing dressage excellence, Olympic Ferro offspring also make spectacular jumpers. Saretta is out of the Star mare Edorette who has produced many dressage winning offspring. Edorette is by Maxamillian Saluut, a Holsteiner stallion who was an International Grand Prix jumper. Saluut also received excellent marks in his Dutch Performance test and was graded at the highest level. It is widely acknowledged that Saluut would also have been equally successful as a dressage horse.
Saretta has foaled many spectacular foals for LJS, many competing in Dressage and Jumper rings! The majority of her KWPN foals have gone First Premium and her AHS foals consistently receive the highest compliments on conformation and movement. Her excellent disposition and high work ethic is constantly evident in her foals, making them some of the easiest to train. All of her foals possess her wonderful attitude resulting in the perfect equine partner.
