Impeccable manners, a top pedigree and super jumping form all rolled into one!
Fantasmic is not only fantastic by name but also by nature, he really is just the sweetest young horse. He has huge potential but is also amateur friendly.
Recently broken, he has already learnt so much! He moves very well and jumps in a lovely style and with plenty of scope.
His half brother jumps 1.50m at 8yrs old!! And he is from the mother line of some super horses – Londontimes (1.60m SJ) and Elba Montanja (1.50m SJ).
His sire Opium abundantly combines superb traits, making him the victorious sport and breeding stallion he is. Opium has had a long and fruitful career with Marc Houtzager, with the Indoor Brabant, Munich and Donaueschingen Grand Prix’s wins, top three rankings in the Rotterdam and St. Gallen Grand Prix’s, the Calgary Nations Cup victory and the Aachen Nations Cup runner-up position, to name but a few successes. Opium finished seventh individually at the 2008 Hong Kong Olympic Games and competed at CHIO Aachen for an amazing six years in a row.
Sterrehof’s Opium performed at the highest level up to the age of nineteen, further emphasising the hardness and soundness he still boasts. Opium passes on these characteristics to his offspring like no other, adding excellent rideability and an athletic exterior. Opium is himself a son of the legendary Westphalian stallion Polydor, who led the international rankings back in the days.
