Hermès x Ferdeaux x Landlord
Skyfall AS is a well built colt with three correct gaits. His sire is none other than the successful stallion Hermès (s. Easy Game) who rises to great heights under Dutch rider Dinja van Lieren. He has top jumping genes on his grandmother's side. This combined with his cooperative character makes him an excellent future sports partner!
Mother is the young 4 year old Oldenburg mare Hennessy AS (s. Ferdeaux). Hennessy AS has a nice cooperative character. She is saddle-broken and has a nice rhythmic trot and takes over weight on her hindlegs easily. She canters with great ease and can collect very well. Skyfall AS is her first foal.
Grandmother is the mare Himla van het Nederassenthof (s. Landlord). She descends from the Hanoverian mare line Halde (stam 1191607). A mare line that guarantees horses at top jumping level. Himla has produced 5 foals in the dressage and jumping direction, of which Hennessy AS is her oldest offspring.
In the mare line we find:
Coquet van de Potaarde Z (s. Cumano) international 1.60m and GP winner with Christian Ahlmann
Castor van het Molenhof Z (s. Catoki) - 1.60m. Dominque Hendrickx (Bel)
Simply the Best van het Molenhof (s. Chatman) - 1.60m. - Jody Bosteels (Bel)

Undercover van het Molenhof (s. Skippy II) 1.40m
Campari Blue van het molenhof (s. Mr. Blue) 1.40m
Jericho (s. Clarence I) - 1.45m.
Hargane vd Potaarde (s. Diamant de Semilly) 1.50m - Niels Bruynseels (Bel)
Sire is the KWPN approved stallion Hermès (by Easy Game). He won bronze at the World Championships in Ermelo in the 6-year-old dressage horses, he recorded several victories in the Stallion Competition and in 2020, at the age of just 8 years old the stallion made his Grand Prix debut with his rider, Dinja van Liere.
His performances and scores were well above 70% and were noticed by the Olympic Committee for the selection of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Unfortunately, an administrative error threw a spanner in the works for his chance at the Olympic games.
Meanwhile, the victories are piling up and Hermès is joining the absolute world top!
