Filly by Helios B (Eldorado Van De Zeshoek x Verdi) x Vaillant (For Pleasure) x Riverman

By a son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek currently jumping 140s.

Incredibly well bred with a lot of quality and blood. 

By Helios B, 8yo Stallion by Eldorado van de Zeshoek x Verdi jumping 140s:

  • 7th in the All England 7 year old Championship at Hickstead

  • 2nd Bluechip 4th HOYS Grade C Championship Qualifier 135

  • Placed in Foxhunter Second Rounds, jumping clear in 140s last season. 

Powerhouse Eldorado van de Zeshoek meets all the expectations in both sport and breeding.

Ridden by Willem Greve, the son of Clinton is currently among the best combinations in The Netherlands, making several Nations Cup appearances last year.

In breeding, Eldorado van de Zeshoek is undoubtedly a foundation sire in the making, with already three KWPN approved sons, namely Grandorado TN, Grodino and Highway M TN.

In addition, Eldorado van de Zeshoek’s dam Bijou Orai currently competes at 1.60m level with French rider Olivier Perreau.

With the Olympic stallion Clinton as his sire and the highly successful Toulon as dam’s sire, Eldorado’s pedigree is more than outstanding.

At the beginning of 2015, Willem Greve took over the reins of Eldorado van de Zeshoek and immediately won the Grand Prix of Roosendaal.

“Eldorado van de Zeshoek has unlimited scope and with his power he can jump all the classes in the world. Thereby he is competitive, so I’m very happy to have him in my stable!”,

Out of a mare by Vaillant (For Pleasure), a very good careful jumping mare whose other youngstock are looking extremely promising.

For Pleasure was a Hanoverian horse who competed in international show jumping under riders Lars Nieburg and Marcus Ehning.

He won numerous Grand Prix events during his unusually long career, from which he was retired in 2006 at the age of 20. 

For Pleasure has been described as the 'horse of the century'. With his suppleness, scope and attitude being reliably passed on to his foals, for pleasure is in as much demand today as he was during the height of his career.

He retired at the age of 20, having won his last ever class, the leipzig world cup qualifer, and having been sound for his whole career before a tendon injury aged 19. For pleasure semen is of excellent quality with very high conception rates.

Performance: For Pleasure's international career was exceptional.

  • He was on four gold-medal-winning teams for Germany; two Olympic Games (Atlanta 1996 & Sydney 2000, where they finsihed 4th individually)

  • Two European Championships, at Hickstead in 1999 where he was 5th individually, and Donaueschingen in 2003.

  • At donauschingen, he also won individual Bronze, the first ever individual medal for Marcus Ehning.

  • He also won Gold and Silver medals at he German National Championships.

  • His career earnings totalled over €1.8million, ahead of Milton, and his offspring have won over €2.5million between them.

  • He gives a great attitude, plenty of blood, scope and reflex.

A flashy filly with a kind temperament. Very athletic with correct conformation.

She is a serious prospect for the future.
