The best breeders are now almost all from Breed Managers. Here, the breed leader is For Pleasure.
He who is ahead of Cornet Obolensky, Chacco-Blue, Kashmir, Baloubet du Rouet. The chief of the chefs so to speak.
In 2018, For Pleasure's brightest products were the fantastic Fit For Fun (Luciana Diniz), Funky Fred (Marcus Ehning), For Joy vt Z (Kevin Staut) and Firth of Lorne (Marcus Ening) our new talent.
Here we are in Hanover. Fith's dam is a daughter of the very elegant Stakkato who was an excellent breeder.
It is to Stakkato that Firth owes his charisma and expressive spirit. In this the crossing with For Pleasure was judicious. This family regularly has many winners.
From 2012, Firth played at the highest level under the saddle of the young German Katrin Eckermann. Together they won in 2015 the GP 5 * GCT Hamburg becoming the rising star of the Mannschaft. A terrible fall on the river of the prestigious Aix La Chapelle GP broke this momentum. Firth joined the United States and made the happiness of the amateur rider Leah de Martini in 145-155cm. It is to Marcus Fuchs that his owners decided to entrust him to successfully end his sports career at the age of 16.
There are currently only 8 young offspring from Firth of Lorne: Four females and four males, two of which are already approved stallions, both with the title "Pramienhengst".
So the very feline Firth of Lorne joins the BLH stud farm. We have wanted it for a long time because it is the archetype of the modern sport horse. Lighter, more elegant than For Pleasure and Furioso II, these sire and grandfather, this stallion is in step with the evolution of modern sport. A sport which requires lighter horses, a lot of commitment and always more respect, of keenness.
Yes, we foresee a GOOD future for its future French products.
