Description

This beautiful young stallion carries some of the finest jumping bloodlines on both sides of his impressive pedigree.

   Out of a Head Stud Book, Graded Holsteiner mare and sired by our own young stallion Paddy of Liosin. His sire is Crown`s Ace of Pearl a stallion who has been campaigned extensively as show jumper, dressage and eventer, he is by the ZfdP International GP show jumping stallion, Crown`s Blue Pearl. A horse bred from the rare and multi talented Kinsky breeding program and infused with high performance thoroughbred bloodlines.  The German stallion A-Dur compliments this already impressive jumping providence.

Paddy is out of an Olympic Lux (Lux Z/Lord Calando/Ahorn Z x ​Ahorn/Nimmerdor/Vicomte Grandieux) mare, a KWPN stallion and prolific sire of of over 15 show jumpers and 15 eventers, all competing at top level. His sire, Lux Z has made an enormous impact on Holsteiner sports breeding. As well as being an Olympic show jumper he has sired over 60 show jumpers and significant numbers of both eventers and dressage horses.

Mojo`s dam, N-She`s All, a Head Stud Book and premium graded Holsteiner is 100% jump bred. Her sire, Corrado is yet another Olympian with over 120 show jumping progeny to date. He is considered as the founder of a Holsteiner sire line of his own! In his stallion performance test he scored an unprecedented 10 for both his loose jump and that under saddle.

Corrado is by Cor de la Bryere, a stallion that revolutionised the jumping horses` breeding. He too had an incredible impact in Holsteiner and he occurs in more than 80% of the top performance pedigrees as well as being credited with improving the breed`s jumping technique. His sire Rantzau was from 1971-1973 the leading sire of dressage horses, show jumpers and event horses in France. He is regarded as the best thoroughbred stallion who ever entered the French sport horse breeding industry.

Corrado`s dam, Soleil was a Nations Cup eventer and was herself by the extraordinary jumper, Capitol I, a stallion known to have `put wings` on a legion of offspring. It is thanks to his influence that the Cottage Son xx line became one of the most influential thoroughbred infusions in Holstein breeding.

Holsatia IX, `Mojo`s` dams dam, was by the show jumping Olympian/World Championship stallion Landgraf I. Labeled by many as the `stallion of the Century`. Immortalised in bronze at Elmshorn where he stands as the symbol of the modern Holsteiner Sport Horse. Her dam, Wicke III was by Caletto II (a son of Cor de a Bryere).

Performance Record

Presented as a two year old, late in his second year GFS Eskimo Jo both stunned and impressed with his tremendous stature and character. He was awarded out of 10. An 8 for trot, 7 Posture and Balance, 9 Canter, 7 for both Reflexes and Technique. His scope over a fence was awarded and 8 and his attitude a 9. A horse for the future was the general consensus!

Mojo has since grown into his Herculean frame and last year we concentrated on developing his flatwork . His incredible concentration and willingness had him performing to Medium level very rapidly, finding lateral work so very easy and quickly establishing the basics of piaffe and passage. Aggravating an old injury saw a hold put on work early last summer but now well recovered we are hoping to start working on his jumping.

He is a larrikin on the ground with a huge sense of humour but absolutely no malice which is fortunate given his size! He has a generous nature, sensible attitude and is a delight under saddle with an intelligence and work ethic that makes him a delight to ride.

Progeny Information

This year is his first real year at Stud. He produced two super foals in 2017 from test coverings to ascertain whether keeping him entire was a route we wanted to travel.
In 2020 we have seen two absolutely exceptional foals with one more to arrive. As a result we have covered a larger book of mares this year with very high hopes for the future of this really exciting young stallion!
Despite his height, he has easily covered mares as small as 16hh and his foals to date have not been enormous. They have however, been of quite exceptional conformation, elegance and beauty with superb proportions, beautiful heads and charming characters full of confidence and kind natures.
