Great Blue (Archived)


The first KWPN approved son of Plot Blue

The stallion stands out with his handsome type, good jumping technique and great power, and in 2014, he successfully completed his performance test.

Great Blue's sire, Plot Blue is legendary. After three days of world-class show jumping competition, top German rider Marcus Ehning captured the 32nd annual Rolex/FEI 2010 World Cup Final with this phenomenal jumper. The fantastic pair then went on to great success in 2011 and 2012 winning CSI5* shows such as the 2012 Gothenburg CSI5*-W resulting in their being named to the 2012 German Olympic show jumping team. In London, Plot Blue put in two clear rounds in the individual jumping qualifier and round A, and ended up 12th overall.

Plot Blue boasts strong jumping genes. He is out of the valuable Pilot mare, Ilotte, who was renown as the dam of the KWPN-approved stallion and Grand Prix level show jumper Oklund. Ilotte also produced the national 1.40 meter show jumper, Nilotte.

Plot Blue's sire, Mr. Blue, competed in international show jumping under Bert Romp, Elise Haas, and Katie Monahan Prudent. Other Mr. Blue offspring include the itnernational show jumpers, Savanna B, Okometa, Parmala Douche, Santana B, Sunday B, and True Blue B just to name a few.

Great Blue's dam line is no less impressive. The Holsteiner stallion Libero H (Landgraf I) is one of the most influential stallions both in sport and in breeding. With Jos Lansink, Libero H won a very impressive series of World Cup competitions and Grand Prixs, the highlight being the victory in the 1994 World Cup finals at 's-Hertogenbosch. His fighter's mentality combined with his technique and incomparable reflexes made this stallion almost impossible to beat that season. From all his offspring competing in the sport over 25% are jumping at international levels. For this, Libero H was awarded the 'PREFERENT' predicate, the highest award a stallion can receive from the KWPN.
