Ace has been a hardworking guy his whole life, jumping in over a hundred grand prixs. We are his retirement home, and we love having him. His babies are sweet, kind and easy to train. They also have his elegant, cadenced movement.
Ace’s dad is Ahorn Z. Ahorn Z became an international jumping legend with the Dutch team competing in many World Cups and Grand Prix. He is famous for producing international show jumpers and breeding stallions, including Acord I, Acord II, and Acord III. Ahorn Z transmits courage, determined character and sincere force and structure without removing class. Ahorn's dam, Heureka, competed internationally and had many wins in Hamburg, Aachen, Bruxelles, Noerten-Hardenberg, Vienna, and Berlin, and won the Grand Prix of Aachen. She was one of the most successful international jumpers in the period 1969-71, and is ranked as one of the best broodmares in the world.
Ace’s mom is by Calypso I. Calypso I produced both dressage stars as well as international jumpers. He is said to be one of the most significant sires and most uniform producer of elegant performance horses. He is considered an important pre-potent sire that consistently produced fabulous gaits and scopey movements in his get. He has 10 stallion sons and over 140 approved daughters.
Aquilan Calypso has both pedigree and achievement that make him an exceptional sire.
