Ultime Espoir was recently imported from Europe to show in the Hunter Divisions and to become a top breeding stallion in the United States. Ultime Espoir has already won numerous Championships in the Regular Hunter Divisions as well as the Conformation Divisions. He has blue ribbons in the Model, Over Fences, and Under Saddle classes.
Ultime Espoir has several foals in Europe and expecting a foal this year in California. Ultime Espoir will become one of the top Hunter Stallion in America.
In 2014, Ultime Espoir will be competing in the green conformation classes. He may be in some selected 1st year green hunter classes as well as some selected Hunter Derbies. Look for him in many Winner Circles throughout America.
Ultime Espoir's name is translated to Ultimate Hope and that is what we have for all his foals.
The superior champion of the 2007 KWPN Stallion Competition and vice champion of the national 6 year old championships, Ultime Espoir is a son of Chellano Z. This son of Contender is bred out of the full sister to the stallions Corrado I and II and was successful with Jos Lansink at the highest level of international showjumping. The combination placed in the Grand prix of Rotterdam, London and Neumunster to name just a few.
Dam Etoile du Catelet is a daughter of Laeken, the successful international showjumping stallion with Patrice Delaveau. Laeken is the sire of a long series of international showjumping horses of which Champion du Lys (Ludger Beerbaum), Fakir de la Lande (Michael Whitaker) and Baeken Platire (Michel Hecart) are good examples. Grand dam Ostande is a daughter of Fort de la Cour. This stallion produced, for instance, the international showjumping horse Falco de Gouville (Olivier Bourqui) and is bred out of the same mare as the famous showjumping horse Major de la Cour (Thomas Fuchs, Alison Firestone). The pedigree is completed by the well known showjumping horse producer Uriel. All offspring (4) out of his daughter Havanne have competed at national showjumping levels.
Ultime Espoir combines ideal conformation with a powerful take-off and beautiful technique. His movement is remarkably light-footed with a lot of ease and balance. The offspring report published last year praises Ultime Espoir’s foals for their excellent conformation, their great expressions and light footed movements.
ULTIME ESPOIR: THE BEST HOLSTEIN AND FRENCH BREEDING HAS TO OFFER COMBINED!
There is no doubt that Ultime Espoir will become one of the top hunter stallions in the U.S. today. I have
not seen a stallion I like better for this job. He has the temperament, conformation, light way of moving, and jumping style we all look for in a hunter.

I would say that your horse caught my eye at his first show. Since then I've made it a point to watch him as it's been a while that I have seen a horse of his quality. Along with his jump, which is always high, slow with beautiful style, he always tries to win. He is an absolute pleasure to watch and I would certainly love to breed to him.
