| Ultime Espoir: a combination of the best of German and French jumper breeding. |
The superior Champion of the 2007 KWPN Stallion Competition and Reserve Champion of the National 6 yr. old Championships, Ultime Espoir, is a son of Chellano Z. This son of Contender is bred out of the full sister to the stallions Corrado I and II, and was successful with Jos Lansink at the highest level of international showjumping. The combination placed in the Grand prixs of Rotterdam, London and Neumunster to name just a few.
His dam, Etoile du Catelet, is a daughter of Laeken, the successful international showjumping stallion under Patrice Delaveau. Laeken is the sire of a long series of international showjumping horses of which Champion du Lys (Ludger Beerbaum), Fakir de la Lande (Michael Whitaker) and Baeken Platièère (Michel Hecart) are good examples. Ultime Espoir's grand dam, Ostande, is a daughter of Fort de la Cour. This stallion produced, for instance, the international showjumping horse Falco de Gouville (Olivier Bourqui), and is bred out of the same mare as the famous showjumping horse, Major de la Cour (Thomas Fuchs, Alison Firestone). The pedigree is completed by the well known showjumping horse producer, Uriel. All offspring (4) out of his daughter, Havanne, have competed at national showjumping levels.
Ultime Espoir combines ideal conformation with a powerful take-off and beautiful technique. His movement is remarkably light-footed with a lot of ease and balance. The offspring report published last year praises Ultime Espoir’s foals for their excellent conformation, their great expressions and light footed movements.
