The superior champion of the 2007 KWPN Stallion Competition and vice champion of the national 6 years old championships, Ultime Espoir is a son of Chellano Z. This son of Contender is bred out of the full sister to the stallions Corrado I and II and was successful with Jos Lansink at the highest level of international showjumping. The combination placed in the Grand prix of Rotterdam, London and Neumunster to name just a few.
Dam Etoile du Catelet is a daughter of Laeken, the successful international showjumping stallion with Patrice Delaveau. Laeken is the sire of a long series of international showjumping horses of which Champion du Lys (Ludger Beerbaum), Fakir de la Lande (Michael Whitaker) and Baeken Platièère (Michel Hecart) are good examples. Grand dam Ostande is a daughter of Fort de la Cour. This stallion produced, for instance, the international showjumping horse Falco de Gouville (Olivier Bourqui) and is bred out of the same mare as the famous showjumping horse Major de la Cour (Thomas Fuchs, Alison Firestone). The pedigree is completed by the well known showjumping horse producer Uriel. All offspring (4) out of his daughter Havanne have competed at national showjumping levels.
Ultime Espoir combines ideal conformation with a powerful take-off and beautiful technique. His movement is remarkably light-footed with a lot of ease and balance. The offspring report published last year praises Ultime Espoir’s foals for their excellent conformation, their great expressions and light footed movements.
