In July 2003 at the KWPN Central Keuring at Den Ham a three-year-old Ster daughter of Harnita, named Tarnita (by Numero Uno), won the competition with the highest score for loose-jumping and is now showjumping internationally. In 2005 a full-brother to Tarnita, named Uno, was sold at the Performance Plus Elite Auction in the Netherlands. In 2003 Harnita had a colt foal by Royal Bravour, named Wang Chung m2s, an approved stallion and international showjumper. He was the Zwolle "Future Stallion" Champion with Eddie Brinkman, showjumped internationally for Germany with Felix Hassmann, and now jumps for Canada with his half-owner Eric Lamaze. In 2004 Harnita had another colt foal, this one by Condios and named Zion m2s, that had to be put down due to an injury. In 2005 she produced a filly foal by Ulysses m2s that was sold in utero to the USA, named Ahsianita m2s. In 2006 Harnita produced another filly by Ulysses m2s, named Benita m2s, retained by Morningside Stud. In 2007 Harnita produced a chestnut colt by Apache d'Adriers, named Comanche m2s, that was sold to Irish international rider Greg Broderick. In 2008 Harnita produced Désir du Monde m2s, a filly by Désir du Chateau. In 2009 Harnita's filly by Cornet Obolensky was born with a head deformity and was euthanized shortly after birth. In 2011 Harnita produced a filly by the Holsteiner stallion Cassito, named Cassita m2s.
Sire: Ahorn was awarded the prefix "Olympic" by the Dutch Federation in recognition of his own showjumping prowess and the predicate "Preferent" by the KWPN in recognition of his excellence in producing top international showjumpers. Among his many international offspring are High Valley Z, the multi-times winner of the Sires of the World competitions, Eurocommerce Geneve, Ivor, Dublin, and Iron. Ahorn's sire is Nimmerdor, the KWPN's Preferent "Sire of the Century" and his dam, M.Hyazinthe, was a Keur Preferent Prestatie mare by the great Ladykiller xx.

Tornita's competition progeny include Ferdy (by Vindicator), who competed in both showjumping and dressage; Garant (by Nimmerdor), who showjumped; Jasper (by Nimmerdor), who competed in both showjumping and dressage, and Norbert-Nita (by Indoctro), a showjumper. Tornita's daughter Arnita (by Nimmerdor) is dam of the approved stallion Bernstein B. Erdball xx was awarded the predicate "Preferent" by the KWPN in recognition of his excellence as a sire. Erdball produced Nick Skelton's great international showjumper Apollo, two-time winner of the Grand Prix of Aachen, winner of the Dublin Grand Prix, Individual Bronze Medal winner at the World Championship, Individual Bronze Medal winner at the European Championship, and twice Team Gold Medal winner at the European Championship. (Apollo shares the same dam, Niki B, with Ekstein's dam, Aniki.) Erdball is also the sire of Helena Weinberg's Just Malone, winner of the Grand Prix of Rome and Vice Champion of the 1984 European Championship for Young Riders. Erdball is also the sire of important stallions such as Tolbert and Triton. Ornita is a full-sister of the important Keur stallion Legaat, the sire of six approved sons and himself a son of the great Preferent progenitor Marco Polo. Ornita's dam, Lanita B, is a Model Preferent Prestatie mare by the great Preferent sire Sinaeda. This combination of Marco Polo x Sineada produced, among others, the important sire Irco Polo (the sire of the progenitor Irco Marco.) Lanita is half-sister of the stallions Camillo and Camillus (both sired by Cambinus), and she is dam of the famous stallion Legaat (by Marco Polo). Legaat brought at least 5 approved stallions: Accent (1982, by Ulex), Adios (1982, by Uppercut xx), Calimero (1984, by Amor), Cosmos (1984, by Lucky Boy xx) and Wandango (1980, by Equator).
