Carrying the acronym ESHKS, the Eesti Sporthoubuste Kasvatatjate Selte, or Estonian Sport Horse Breeders Society (which also encompasses Estonian Riding Ponies), was founded in 2000 with just 25 breeders, and today numbers around 200 who register some 250 foals each year. To date, their members have won the Estonian showjumping championships for four years in a row, and from 2012 to 2017 in dressage. Thanks to the importation of some good sport horses that turned into excellent sires, i.e. A Pikachu de Muze (Kanan x Chin Chin), and temporarily standing stallions such as Spartacus (Stakkato x Grannus), the quality of Estonian sport horses has rapidly improved. Today, with the increasing use of AI, stallions from throughout Europe are bringing important blood to the Society. Last year, imported semen from the Holsteiner Quality Time and I'm Special de Muze was the most popular, followed by neighbouring Finnish Warmbloods Waltzmann and Mozart II, ahead of Blue Hors Don Schufro. During the same period, the most popular stallions in Estonia were Verso de Paulstra, the young Kontador van de Doorndonkhoeve (2010: Nabab de Reve) and Spartacus, closely followed by Palladium.
