Optimist ES is the name of the 2019-born chestnut that convinced at the pre-selection in Ermelo. The young stallion bred by Egbert Schep descends from Herakles out of a Caritano Z dam. He was able to prove his quality at the pre-selection, distinguished by a powerful canter and supple movements in the basic gaits as well as over the jump.
Another descendant of Herakles at this pre-selection is Old Shatterhand TCS out of a Voltaire x Burggraaf dam. He already shows great balance and talent over the jump. Breeder of this stallion is T.&L. Collins.
Both stallions were approved for the licensing. Congratulations!
