Nimphydora is a full sister to Mochadora EH and Leadora EH.

Nimphydora's dam line originates from KWPN breeding family 1633. Great granddam Vidora is in the top 200 of best KWPN mares in her class, with a dressage index of 165 (KWPN table 2013). Vidora gave the KWPN approved stallion Joyride EH (by Ampère). Vidora's granddam Rolanda gave the small tour dressage horse Flying Dutchman (by Zevenster), and also the Grand Prix dressage horse Privaldi (by Gribaldi), which holds the 236th position on the WBFSH-list of dressage horses (2012). A full sister of Rolanda's dam Joliza gave the international Grand Prix showjumping mare Ferina (by Ramiro). In the 6th generation Nimphy carries the valuable Doruto blood in her veins (grandsire of Nivaldora), from him she must have inherited the blaze.
Nimphydora's granddam Chivadora is a halfsister to KWPN approved stallion Joyride EH.

Nimphydora's sire Franklin is a licensing champion who has scored a 10 for his trot at a stallion competition. At his performance test in november 2013, which he won with 86.5 points, he was rewarded with 7 for his walk, 8.5 for trot, 9.5 for canter and self-carriage and balance, and a 9 for his rideability and for potential as a dressage horse. He continued to excel under the saddle and, in february 2015, he won the KWPN stallion championship final for 5 year-olds, where he was awarded 9.5 for trot, 8 for walk and 8.5 for canter, rideability and general impression. Franklin is incredibly uphill, with a hindleg showing abundant power, push and spring. He has a phenomenal, powerful canter, which he passes on to his offspring. Franklin is a breathtaking beautiful son of the much sought-after Ampère, who combines looks with trainability and performance. Ampère, who is by Rousseau out of a Flemmingh mare, comes from a keur damline and was the winner of his 70-day performance test, including 9 for talent and was praised by the testers as the best horse they had ridden in years. Ampère was also the top priced foal at the Borculo Elite Auction in 2005, selling for 41,000 euro's.
Franklin's dam-sire Ferro is a dressage legend who competed at the highest level, including the Olympics and European Championships under Coby van Balen, and then went on to become one of dressage's major foundation sires. He produced a dressage dynasty, with his most notable offspring being, among others, Negro (=sire of Valegro!), Kennedy, Rousseau and Rhodium.

Nimphydora has the D-OC predicate (DNA score 99), and is also tested wffs-free.
Nimphydora was selected for the Prinsjesdag foal auction (catalogue nr. 24).
