Sire: AQUILAN CALYPSO was an elegant, well-proportioned stallion with a calm temperament and generous attitude. He was a hard-working guy his whole life, jumping in over 100 Grands Prix. His jumping pedigree is flawless, combining AHORN Z with the performance mare W-CAMBRIA, a successful show jumper in her own right. Her sire, CALYPSO I, sired at least 20 approved stallions with the Holsteiner Verband and is said to be one of the most significant sires and most uniform producers of elegant performance horses. Ahorn Z became an international jumping legend with the Dutch team competing in many World Cups and Grand Prix. He is famous for producing international show jumpers and breeding stallions, including ACORD I, ACORD II, and ACORD III. Aquilan Calypso produces foals that move with the fluidity and cadence that would suit a career in dressage, but they have also been both eager and talented jumping through the chute. His babies are sweet, kind and easy to train.
Dam: VIVA was a talented and successful dressage horse until an injury made it impossible to stay in full time work. She is very big for a mare, with a ton of bone, uphill build, and thick muscling. She is spitting image of her sire VULCAAN and grandsire PATRICK. Vulcaan comes from the old foundation Dutch bloodlines that are found in some of the best competition horses today. At the Olympic games in Australia, there were an amazing nine horses sharing his bloodlines. Vulcaan passes on good movement, temperament, size and substance to his offspring. This stallion crossed extremely well with Thoroughbred mares to produce modern sport horses. Vulcaan’s offspring have been champions in many fields including hunter, jumper, dressage, and eventing. His youngsters have also been champions on the line. Vulcaan’s dam, ZABELLA has been awarded the CWHBA Production Premium Award. On her dam’s side is the very famous stallion SPORTMAN who is sired by SINAEDA, one of the foundation sires of the modern Dutch sport horse.
Notes: ACE OF HEARTS RPH is a big, handsome colt with powerful, elegant movement. There is no doubt about his potential as a dressage horse with his conformation and pedigree, but he could truly excel at anything with his kind, curious nature and willingness to work with people.
