Dam Sire: Emilion VDL

The pedigree of Emilion exemplifies performance. His ‘Keur, Preferent’ IBOP-A’ dam, Ramirha, is a daughter of the full-sister of the Holstein legend Lord. Emilion is much like Lord – a true sire of jumping horses, not only as a sire, but also as a dam’s sire. Based on the fantastic performances of his direct offspring and his great achievements as dam’s sire Emilion was awarded with the predicate ‘Preferent’ at the age of 28.

Emilion’s own performances are impressive. Guided by rider, Ulrich Kirchhoff, he won the World Cup of Mill Street, and placed in the following Grand Prix: 2nd in Donaueschingen, 4th in Valkenswaard, 5th in London and 6th in the World Cup at Aarhus. With the German team, he was 4th in Dublin and Rotterdam, and 2nd in Bremen.

As a sire, Emilion belongs to the world’s best jumping horse producers. His offspring are performing worldwide in Grand Prix and World Cup classes. Seldana is currently most famous. This top performance mare, ridden by Abdullah Al Sharbatly, won the Silver Medal at the World Championships in Kentucky. She also was Silver Medallist at the European Championships in 2009, while a part of the Italian Team. Equally famous is Emilion’s son Glasgow, who competed for years at the highest International level, won several World Cups and Grand Prix – the CN Reliability Grand Prix of Canada three times, and was crowned the ‘USA Horse of the Year’.
