An exceptional athlete – from the crown of his head to his sole. Rarely has a young stallion convinced the experts as much as Emeron. “This stallion shone with a lot of ability, overview, reflexes and above all power. He mastered the last measurements with confidence and aplomb. Equipped with quite a lot of courage and quite a lot of caution,” was the enthusiastic comment of the licensing commission on Emeron’s performance on the occasion of the Westphalian licensing 2021 in Münster-Handorf. And Ludger Beerbaum and Philipp Weishaupt are also sure: “This stallion can jump anything.”
The sire Emerald van het Ruytershof, himself a son of the legendary Diamant de Semilly, started his show-jumping career under Harrie Smolders/NED in 2010 as Vice World Champion of six-year-old show-jumpers. He subsequently took second place in the World Cup Final in Gothenburg/SWE in 2016. He also won the Grand Prix of Chantilly/FRA, Lanaken/BEL, Bordeaux/FRA, Vilamoura/POR and Gent/BEL, the World Cup show jumping competition in Washington/USA, the Allianz Prize in Aachen and the Nations’ Cups in Gijon/FRA, Falsterbo/SWE and Rotterdam/NED. Emerald van het Ruytershof and Harrie Smolders were also part of the Dutch Olympic team in Rio/BRA in 2016 and placed at the Nations Cup Finals in Barcelona/ESP in 2016 and 2018. According to the WBFSH ranking, Emerald van het Ruytershof is one of the top 25 best jumping sires in the world. He owes this outstanding position to his offspring, currently led by Kasper van het Hellehof/McLain Ward/USA, Goldwin/Laura Kraut/USA, Mandato van de Neerheide/Christian Ahlmann and PB Maserati/Steve Guerdat/SUI. The dam Benicique already produced the half-brother Global Champion (by Global Express), who was also licensed in Münster-Handorf in 2017 and is successful in tests for young show jumpers according to his age. The pedigree includes the Nimmerdor son Ahorn, Rodrigo Pessoa’s Olympic winner Baloubet du Rouet and the preferent stallion Burggraaf. The granddam Termieque produced the international show jumpers Fabrice DN (by Emilion)/Nicolas Pizarro/MEX, Kaspar R (by Eldorado van de Zeshoek), Exellentie DN (by Chin Chin) and Charmieque (by Carolus II), who in turn produced the licensed and internationally successful Grandorado TN (by Eldorado van de Zeshoek) with Willem Greve/NED. Emeron goes back to the Dutch mare line 227, breeding family 522, which also produced the stallions Pomme de Jus (by Jus de Pomme), J Bøgegårdens Zidane (by Zirocco Blue), Juventus (by. Harley VDL), Detroit DN (by Quaprice Bois Margot) and Obarry (by Komeet) as well as the sport horses Ziedento (by Cardento/int. 1.60 metre jumping), Grandson Chin Chin (by. Bacardi II/int. 1.40 metre show jumping), Dancing Queen VK (by Corland/int. 1.45 metre show jumping), Viva la Vie (by Hors la Loi II/int. 1.45 metre show jumping), Wervel (by Corland/int. 1.50 metre show jumping), W Incorporated (by Corland/int. 1.40 metre show jumping), Flying-Sam (by Baltic VDL/int. 1.45 metre show jumping) and Harvester (by Dakar VDL/int. 1.45 metre show jumping).
