The bigger the fences, the easier Elton John seems to jump them. Ridden by Zoï Snels, the son of Clearway shows his functional way of jumping time and time again. Combined with lots of scope and carefulness. Thanks to those qualities, Elton John clears almost every course and qualified for the World Championships in Lanaken last year for the second year in a row.Elton John’s talent could be expected, given his outstanding pedigree: sire Clearway is one of the most influential sires of Holstein and Elton John’s damline is among world’s best. Granddam Ilotte produced Marcus Ehning’s longtime number one horse Plot Blue, the ‘Keur’ awarded stallion Oklund and she is the granddam to great horses like Babylotte (Bart Bless and Yuri Mansur Guerios), the KWPN approved Broere Extase (Patrick van der Schans) and the highly talented AES approved Dakar TN (Nabab de Rêve x Holland), which already jumps at 1.40m level with Henk van de Pol. In addition, Elton John’s dam Vilotte already produced the international showjumper Blackberry (Mischa Everse).The oldest offspring of Elton John are characterized by power and easy way of jumping and his first son has been invited for the second round of the KWPN Stallion Show.
