The 2024 breeding season kicked off with an inspiring and uplifting spring stallion gradings tour that took our AES team all the way from Hickstead to Scotland, and the grading panel included Robbert Ehrens (NED), Lucy Simpson, Dr Eva-Maria Broomer, and Sasha Whitaker.

We were delighted to welcome our AES Young Breeders who joined us on the tour in preparation for the International Young Breeders World Championships in Denmark this July.
Our inspection tour started on April 1 at Breen Equestrian at Hickstead where we enjoyed their excellently run and informative ‘open day’. The Breen team continues to invest in quality breeding lines and expert production of the young horses, which also resulted in great performances by Breen horses on last year’s medal winning Global Champions Trophy AES teams.
We were therefore delighted to catch up with the great Colmar (Colestus x Quidam’s Rubin) who was awarded elite status in recognition of his outstanding competition and breeding record. Among the next generation, Lucky Luck (Grandorado x Canabis Z) stood out for his flawless jumping technique and beautiful type, gaining him a highly deserved approved status. Opportunity (Grandorado x Kashmir van Schuttershof), who was licensed last year, has continued to mature and impressed with excellent jumping technique and scope, for which he was upgraded to approved status. Z7 Mevano (Grandorado x Indoctro) was presented for his first licensing, which he passed with great marks for his jumping and his very balanced, rideable canter.
Among the external stallions presented, Gerda Weston and Anna Jellis’s C Spirit WW (Tangelo x Lupicor) charmed us with his incredible keenness to jump, forward thinking attitude, and his very attractive type. He is the full brother to the super mare C Serendipity and the direct family has produced countless successful international 1m60 showjumpers.
Lianne Verity presented two stallions. Myspires High Profile (Myspires Fider Hit x Multicolor II) is a smoky black tobiano who showed a lovely jumping ability and expressive gaits, including a ground covering trot, all of which gained him high marks for eventing. Lianne told us that he is for sale, so we hope he finds a great home to develop his considerable ability... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
