Valley is an exceptional rising 3 year old gelding, by the exciting young stallion, Quidam's Pleasure [For Pleasure x Quidam de Revel x Cassini I], out of our promising young mare, Royal Cornelia WM [Conquest van de Helle x Beaulieu's Quissini x Phantast].  We expect him to have a very bright future in the big hunters, of course he is also bred to have all the scope of a top jumper as well!

Valley is a pleasure to handle and have in the barn, he is very social and loves attention. He stands tied for grooming and hoof trimming, comes to be haltered, leads perfectly and loads in the trailer and hauls by himself like a dream. He was introduced to free jumping on April 19, 2023 over only a couple small jumps and showed great skill and scope. He is now being introduced to the saddle and bridle to prepare for being started soon.

Dam, Cornelia, is a fantastic young mare, with exceptional athleticism, trainability, movement and jumping style.  She is has moderate bone, and is a modern, long legged horse with great, strong conformation.  She jumps freely and under saddle with fantastic scope and form, as well as confidence.  Under saddle, she is very easy and safe feeling with great work ethic, despite being green still. In 2023, she started more formal training and attended her first schooling show. Trainer, Travis Root, has provided us with fantastic feedback on Cornelia after her first month of training and we are excited for the future with her under saddle. As a 4 year old, she earned her E-label at the Belgian Warmblood Keuring.

Cornelia's dam, Quartz Rouge, is excelling in sport as a junior hunter, also an incredibly easy and athletic mare, having jump schooled to 1.50 m with her junior rider, with hack-winning movement to top it off.  Cornelia's grand-dam, Phiesta, competed to 1.35 m and has produced numerous hunter prospects.  Cornelia's sire, Conquest van de Helle, was the champion of the 2005 Belgian stallion approval.  His sire, Corrado I, is world renowned as a top sire and grand prix sport stallion, having produced numerous approved and highly sought after sons and grandsons, such as Clinton, Corofino I, Coronado and Cornet Obolensky, with over 95 progeny competing at international level.

Sire, Quidam's Pleasure, has complimented Cornelia so fantastically in their first breeding, we made a full sibling for 2022, a filly named Wilhelmina WM.  Quidam's Pleasure is a modern type stallion, he exhibits lightness, balance, carefulness and quick reflexes.  He is a young, very promising stallion, with exceptional bloodlines for our sport. 

Quidam's Pleasure's sire is none other than the great For Pleasure, a stallion with an exceptional international career. He was on four gold-medal-winning teams for Germany; two Olympic Games (Atlanta 1996 & Sydney 2000, he also finished 4th individually), and two European Championships, at Hickstead in 1999, where he was 5th individually and Donauschingen in 2003. In Donauschingen he won individual bronze, the first ever individual medal for Marcus Ehning. He also won gold and silver medals at the German National Championships. His career earnings totaled over 1.8 million euros, ahead of Milton, and his offspring have won well over 2.5 million euros among them. For Pleasure’s offspring speak for themselves. He has produced more than 80 grand prix jumpers, with 18 of these being licensed stallions; a total of 70 sons of For Pleasure sons have been approved by various studbooks. Some of his most famous offspring include Fit for Fun, Barron, Flora de Mariposa, Firth of Lorne, Epleaser vt Heike, Ornellaia, For Joy vt Zorgliet, Hello Forever and Funky Fred. 

Quidam's Pleasure's dam, Greetings from Quidam – Stamm 7126 , is a direct daughter of the legendary, Quidam de Revel. Quidame was imported from Belgium in 2009.  Quidam de Revel is without a doubt one of the most influential stallions of all time, with offspring such as Tlaloc La Silla, Nabab de Reve, Guidam, Verdi, Cirka de Blondel, Quibelle, Quel Homme etc.  Grand-dam, Charisma de Sjiem, is a mare with incredible genetic potential through Cassini I and Caretino, two of the world’s best jumping horse progenitors.
