At the age of 16, the Hanoverian stallion Adorado/Breemeersen Adorado (Acorado I - Glücksfee x Glücksgriff) will be enjoying a healthy retirement at his competitive stable in Breemeersen, where he's lived for the past three years since being purchased by the Brondeel brothers. Approved by Hanover, BWP, SF and sBs, Adorado was bred by Frank Johannsen in Huxtehude, Germany. At the age of six, he celebrated a bronze medal win at the showjumping World Breeding Championship for Sport Horses in Lanaken.

His success continued with wins and top placings in Grand Prix classes as well as Nations' Cups as a member of the Belgian team under the saddle of Donaat Brondeel. In an online tribute to the stallion, his rider said: "Thank you Adorado for the many wonderful moments. Enjoy your rest in the Breemeersen fields where you can see your foals. I was blessed to ride you for so many years, you are a once-in-a-lifetime stallion for me and our studfarm. All the great memories over the years made you part of our family. We hope day you produce a copy of yourself, but you will always stay our number one stallion."
