Baltic is doing well jumping at the CSI at 1.40 in 2015!
Baltic’s sire was the Grand Prix jumper, Quaprice, who unfortunately died just as he was making his mark on breeding. Quaprice was the son of the famous Quidam de Revel. The ‘Keur’ stallion Jus de Pomme (double Gold winner at the Atlanta Olympics) is sire to many Grand Prix jumpers. The line then continues with the proven sires Wellington, Orthos, Joost and Rigoletto. Baltic’s dam is the ‘Ster and Prestatie’ mare Nellandra. She is the dam of the approved stallion Vegas VDL and is a full sister of the Grand Prix jumper Mellandra. Baltic carries 55.66% thoroughbred. As a three-year old Baltic placed fourth in the Champions Ring at the Stallion Inspection in Den Bosch. During the Stallion Test, Baltic gave the top performance to become the Champion. He received a 9 for his reflexes, scope and talent as a jumping horse. Baltic continues to do well in sport developing impressively with his scope, good technique and great reflexes as he accumulates points. He jumped twice at the World Championships for Jumpers in Lanaken. In 2013 he placed 6th in the VION Cup for 7-year olds, 2nd in the 1.35m finals at NIC Assen and 5th in the 1.30m final at CSI Zuidbroek. He currently is jumping clear rounds at 1.40m level with James Billington. Baltic’s offspring are scoring very well at shows.
