1991 Bay Oldenburg and Dutch Warmblood, 16.2 HH
The Oldenburg jumping phenomenon PETER PAN is more than one of thirty offspring
of the legendary Westphalian progenitor Pilot (Pilatus) that are performing in
the International showjumping arena. Celebrities such as PS Priamos (Ludger
Beerbaum), Pirol V (Lesley McNaught), Showtime (Nick Skelton), and Pialotta
(Rolf-Goran Bengtsson) are all direct Pilot descendants. PETER PAN was bred in
East Germany at Paul Schockemohle’s stud farm “Lewitz”. His dam, Gesthemane, is
a product of the classic combination Domino (Domspatz) and Gepard (Gotthard).
The line continues back to the Hanoverian mare Soraja II Z (Furioso II x Senat),
who has also been used for breeding at the famous Belgian stud farm
“Zangersheide”. In 1994 PETER PAN was most impressive during the free jumping
at the KWPN stallion selection, where he received his breeding license. He then
pursued an impressive showjumping career under Neal Fearon, and then Alessia
Marioni (seen above), earning a series of victories in the International arena.
From PETER PAN’s first seasons in the Netherlands, several sons were licensed
for breeding, including, Opan, Obsession, and Olivier.
