2008 gelding by Abke (Acorado I - Contender - Raphael) out of Coeur de Championne HF by Coriander - Le Champion.
Lovely bay gelding, with a small star, small front coronet and a hind sock! Sire Abke recently won an international Puissance with Felix Ewald in Forst /Lausitz, by jumping over a 2.10 metre wall! The damsire, Coriander, can also be found in many famous jumping pedigrees including that of top stallion Calido I (25+ approved sons, 21 State Premium Mares and 470 offspring in sport). Further in the pedigree is the stallion Landadel, who sired 66 + approved sons, 50 State Premium mares, as well as 92+ Advanced level jumpers. Accolade was named a Premium foal at his Oldenburg Verband inspection. He is a lovely sport prospect.
Has had limited free jumping, trots a 4' fence with ease. Accolade should mature around 16.3 - 17H. Nicely started under saddle, very quiet and uncomplicated. Hacks quietly on the trails. See video links below.
Lauren Kieffer and Team Rebecca’s 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Veronica performed very well in all three phases in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series CIC3* at CHC International in Fairburn, Georgia to claim their third consecutive FEI division win this year.
With cross-country still to come this afternoon, Phillip Dutton and William Penn lead the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series CIC3* division at the CHC International at Bouckaert Farm, Fairburn, Georgia. They were the last dressage test of the day yesterday and flew into first with a 42.4.
