Bellisimo Eldorado graded with a first premium at the NWPCS Stallion Show

We are very proud to announce that the 10-year-old Bellisimo Eldorado has been approved as a studbook stallion during the follow-up inspection of the dutch NWPCS. Eldorado was sold as a foal to Piet Geelen from the Heide Stud where he stayed until the age of 9. Here he bred several beautiful foals which unfortunately were never has been shown.

Fortunately at the end of 2019 he came in the capable hands of John Lambers via Harold Zoet , who prepared him to perfection for this show!

We bred Eldorado out of the beautiful Idyllic Elena (Pendock Legend x Idyllic Princess Leah), She has been with us for three years and gave us some fantactic foals include Bronze Medal winner Bellisimo Enjoy!

We are really happy that Eldorado will staying with John for the 2020 season so we can use him over some mares
