You simply don’t see many direct concorde mares these days , such a good line to find for breeding..
Concorde was the youngest stallion ever to be awarded preferent, due to his endless list of national and international children. Concorde was elected Horse of the Year in 2004 and is the highest ranked KWPN stallion in the top ten of the WBFSH.
this mare combines the super lines of concorde with that of another legend, ramiro through Ronald , a stallion whose legacy in showjumping is too large to discuss here!
this mare competed lightly with an amateur rider before starting breeding. She’s a great type and has some lovely young horses on the ground .
she is due this year to the lovely young sire poker de mariposa.(nabab de reve x Berlin)
Convincingly, Poker de Mariposa became the vice champion of the 3-year-old showjumping stallions at the BWP Stallion Show 2018. The son of top sire Nabab de Rêve showed off a lot of scope and quality on the fence and seems to have a good ride ability for such a young horse. Poker de Mariposas pedigree is to dream of. Sire Nabab de Rêve has been one of the best producers of showjumpers in the world for years and his sons Vigo d’Arsouilles and Kashmir van Schuttershof continue this successful line of sires. Grandsire Berlin won team gold at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen in 2006 with Gerco Schröder and has become a foundation sire with offspring like Athena (Aniek Poels), Caspar (Emanuele Gaudiano) and Zilverstar T (Nicola Philippaerts). Great-grandsire For Pleasure is without a doubt one of the most influential showjumping stallions of the past decades.
The damline of Poker de Mariposa is exceptional: for years granddam Flora de Mariposa has been known as one of the best showjumpers in the world. Ridden by Pénélope Leprévost, the mare won a gold medal with the French team at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and won the five-star Grand Prix of Antwerp and the World Cup Qualifiers of Oslo and Lyon. Her daughter Ilena de Mariposa also performed at 1.45m level with Leprévost and recently the French rider Nicolas Delmotte took over the reins. Ilena de Mariposa is the dam of Poker de Mariposa, who is also closely related to former BWP champion Hermes de Mariposa. Ridden by both Henrik von Eckermann and Mohammed Al Hajri, Hermes de Mariposa competes at the highest level. Previously, Poker de Mariposas half-brother Nestor de Mariposa got already approved by the BWP and also the promising Matisse de Mariposa is closely related to this Nabab de Rêve-son.
With his excellent pedigree and very convincing showjumping qualities under the saddle, Poker de Mariposa seems to be a great asset for the breeding of showjumpers.
