Mirage descends from the stamm line 1298 which is the motherline of the famous stallion Lord. Lord is one of the foundation stallions of Holstein along, with his half brother  Landgraf. Both were sired by the legendary stallion Ladykiller.

Her dam Contessa LVP imported from Belgium, is a very strong, well proportioned mare with exceptional conformation. She is a very classy type, combined with athleticism and exceptional movement. She won the free jumping for three year olds at Zangerscheide. Mirage is a ‘clone’ of her mother!

Contessa LVP is by Contender, who has proved himself to be one of the most influential sons of Calypso II. Calypso II was an advanced level showjumper with Michael R’ping, before retiring to stud where he sired a number of good jumping horses, and also several top line dressage competitors. Contender is out of the Ramiro daughter, Gofine who was in turn by the great Thoroughbred sire, Ladykiller (Her line goes: Ramiro x Ladykiller xx x Heidkrug x Loretto-First-Mirza-Rudolf-Defregger-Justinus-Achill-Fritz).

Contender himself won the 1987 Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test with a jumping index of 146.62. He also was the 1-b main premium vice-champion in Oldenburg on the basis of his exceptional first crop of foals. Before his death he was one of the most popular breeding stallions in Germany and has produced 80 approved sons and 59 state premium mares.

The dam in the fourth generation of Mirage’s motherline, Viola, was the mother of Lord himself.  Mirage is from a top family of 1.50/1.60m jumpers and she is a ‘blueblood’ Holsteiner mare.

Her sire Indoctro (VDL Stud) was Champion of his stallion test in 1993 and went on to a successful jumping career with Ulrich Kirchhoff. He is the sire of more than ten licensed sons and has produced winners at Grand Prix and World Cup level all over the world. Indoctro has been such a success as a sire for the KWPN studbook, that at the age of 16 he received the title: ‘Preferent’.

This young mare is showing exceptional ability over a fence when free jumped and gives a very good feel to her rider! She is going nicely under saddle.

She has the power and scope to be a contender in the top classes.

Sold to AU.
