Sire, the Grand Prix, Ster, Sport stallion Eeltsje F (aka "Bob") is quite simply one of the most accomplished Friesian stallions of all time. By Fabe 348 and out of Ster, Preferant Friesian mare, Iduna (by Tjimme x Ewoud -- also dam to approved Sport, Preferant stallion, Anton 343), Eeltsje's list of accomplishments is jaw-dropping. Under German rider/trainer and USDF gold medalist Nicole Glusenkamp, he earned top national rankings in year-end awards for his entire career - against all breeds - and in 2013, became the #1 Grand Prix Friesian in the U.S.. He continued to rank nationally among the best and among all breeds up to his retirement from competition in the late 20-teens.
Spartacus SCS is one of only a tiny handful of offspring put on the ground by the incredibly talented Eeltsje, which makes him a rare gem indeed. He also seems to have inherited the best of what his sire has to offer -- an incredible mind, work ethic, and natural talent for dressage. This sweet boy is truly a dream horse and is going to make a lucky someone very, very happy! Seller is motivated, and price can be flexible!
