Olympic Imothep

From trips to the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy under Darragh Kenny to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro with Taizo Sugitani, Imothep (Indoctro x Calvados x Dominard) has proven himself at the international level time and again. In addition to his impeccable jumping style and athleticism, Imothep was also honored as the KWPN - NA 2015 Horse of the Year and has sired numerous Premium and Championship foals both in the US and Europe.

Cool Jazz

The newly imported Cool Jazz (Colman/ Cascavelle/ Sacramento Song xx) was approved by the Holsteiner Verband in 2014 and successfully completed his Stallion Performance Test in Germany the following year. He has been competing up to 1,35m in Europe. Due to an unfortunate injury sustained early in his career, Cool Jazz will primarily be used for breeding purposes, and becomes the only son of Colman standing in the U.S.
Cicera’s Icewater

Cicera’s Icewater (Corofino x Cor de la Bryere x Liguster) is appealing not only to show jumping breeders, but also to those looking for their next eventing superstar. During his competitive career, Icewater competed through the Prix St. Georges level in dressage as well as with The O’Connor Eventing Team through CCI*. He was approved by Holsteiner Verband in 2002, receiving the highest score in the history of the American Holsteiner Horse Association.
Asterix E Z

Asterix E Z(Air Jordan Z/ Nimmerdor/ Widukin de Lauzelle) is a powerful jumping horse with superb technique and endless scope. Piloted by Robert Whitaker as a young horse, the pair successfully competed up to 1,55m. With even a limited number of offspring out in the world, we see that Asterix successfully passes on his incredible temperament and jumping ability.
Dakota VDL

When it comes to performance pedigrees, Dakota VDL’s is full of show jumping legends (Casall x Contender x Landgraf I) —and it shows. Dakota’s sire Casall ASK finished 6th in the 2012 World Cup Finals as well as competing in the 2012 London Olympic Games. Grand Sire Contender produced Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum’s Checkmate 4, Nick Skelton’s former ride Carlo 273 and Ludger Beerbaum’s top mare Chiara 222 amongst others. Dakota’s Grandsire Landgraf I is one of the most successful sires of show jumpers the world has seen.
Chin Quidam VDL

Purchased as a 6 year old from VDL Stud, Chin Quidam VDL (Chin Chin x Quidam de Revel x Landgraf I) has proven to be a top athlete and valuable asset to the Hyperion Stud program. With Darragh Kenny in the irons, Chin Quidam VDL’s record boasts wins in the Sparkassen Youngster Cup Qualifier and Finale at Aachen as well as wins in the 8 year old division in Dublin along with numerous other wins and top placings up to 1.50m.
