A superstar bred for show jumping, For Pleasure, ridden by Lars Nieberg and then Marcus Ehning, won 4 team gold medals for Germany, two at the Olympics and two at European Championships, and if that wasn't enough wins, For Pleasure went on to win individually 4th at the 2000 Olympics of Sydney. At the European Championships he finished individually 4th in 1997, 5th in 1999 and a 3rd in 2003. He was 2nd in the World Cup final of Gottenburg in 1995. He won the CSIO GPs at Lucerne and St. Gallen, the CSI-W GPs of Geneva, Brussles and Leipzig and was 2nd in the CSIO GPs of Aachen and La Baule and the CSI-W GP of Olympia. For Pleasure proved himself in the jumping pen and now his foals are being noticed on an international level.
Four of For Pleasure's offspring took home medals in show jumping at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Barron took home silver for the Americans, French-owned Flora de Mariposa won gold. Fibonacci took home a bronze-metal for the Germans, and Erik Lamaze and For Pleasure's granddaughter, Fine Lady, took home bronze in the individual competition.
