Jewel 3E was bred by Kingridge Stables of King ON. We bought her in the spring of 2017 with the intentions of breeding and selling in foal. However once we spent some time with this mare it was obvious she had to stay. She is the perfect mare to produce hack winners and top hunters. She is tall at 16.2 hh, so elegant, and very correct. Her personality is sweet, kind and docile.
Her Sire Tradition, a registered Oldenburg, was imported from Germany (under the name Garcon) and competed under the name Samurai with Hugh Graham for KingRidge Stables with good results in the Hunter ring.
Tradition now competes under his new owner in the Amateur Owner Hunter 36 and Over classes, considered to be the most competitive hunter classes in North America, where he achieves top ribbons in both the Over Fences and Under Saddle classes.
Tradition’s pedigree includes such notables as Voltaire, Furioso II, and Gotthard on his sire’s side and Ramiro and Absatz on his dam’s side. Together these horses contribute the elements one generally sees in the pedigree of a top level hunter, lending both excellent movement and good athleticism.
Her dam's Sire Class Action (born Matcho G), is a son of the very successful Libero H who was himself a successful show jumper winning the 1994 World Cup Final. Libero H is also becoming a successful sire with such top offspring as Liberty, a member of the United States Olympic team in Sydney with Laura Kraut, Carnegie Iowa, winner of the 2000 Sires of the World Championship in Europe and Libra K ridden at the international level by Corinne Collins of Great Britain.
Libero H is by the influential Holstein stallion Landgraf 1(by Ladykiller xx). On his dam side, Classy's pedigree includes two of the most important foundation bloodlines in Holland in Amor and Joost.
Classy has the athleticism of his famous sire and stamps his offspring with his power, good looks and personality. After focusing on breeding for three years, Classy is performing with considerable success in the jumper ring, as well as crossing over as a hunter.
She has been a career broodmare, since she is new to us we have no previous offspring information.
