Sire is the promising young stallion Mr. Emerald E.B. (Emerald van 't Ruytershof x Action-Breaker).
This blood-bred son of Emerald van 't Ruytershof made a big impression at the KWPN Stallion Show thanks to his good effort, quick reflexes, good jumping technique and free jumping ability. The stallion selection committee also recognizes his talent and he is therefore designated for the performance test.
Mr. Emerald E.B. has a very interesting blood line and has a lot of jumping talent, including his extra jumping performance, inherited from his father Emerald van 't Ruytershof. Ridden by Harrie Smolders, this chestnut stallion developed into a high-profile Grand Prix horse and together they took part in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, where they reached the final. Many times they came into action successfully for the Dutch team and they won the 5* Grand Prix of Bordeaux, Chantilly and the World Cup of Washington.. Emerald also seems to distinguish himself in breeding, as witnessed by very successful offspring at the highest level such as Igor, Iluna, Imerald van 't Voorhof and Jeunesse van 't Paradijs.
Mr. Emerald E.B. is bred out of the 1.30m jumping mare Juweel E.B., who combines the valuable sires Action-Breaker and Holland in her pedigree. She is a half sister of several successful sport horses, such as Pietje Come On TH (s. Come On), who performed up to 1.45m level, and the international 1.35m jumping Golden Holland E.B. (s. Cooper van de Heffinck). Several international showjumpers come from this direct family, including the Grand Prix horse Rooseveld (s. Iroko) ridden by Max Kühner.
