Bariton was a very important and popular sire of his time. He sired approved stallions and top level show jumpers including Leslie Lenehan-Burr's 1986 WORLD CUP SHOW JUMPING CHAMPION - McLAIN. Bariton progeny were extremely popular among top european show jumping riders during the 1970's and 1980’s, his progeny collectively winning over 1’000’000 DM in prize money.

The Warendorf state stallion BARRING (full brother of BETSEY, grand dam of Centavos!) was noted as the most accomplished son of Bariton in terms of heredity. Barring was the Stallion Licensing Champion in 1986, going on to establish himself and his progeny as leaders of show jumping in the 1999 FN breeding value rating.

Dam Sire - Voltaire II

Voltaire II is a beautiful son of Voltaire that stood at Astek Stud in NZ. Voltaire II has made a significant contribution to NZ breeding in previous years.  Versace C ridden by NZL Event and Show Jump Rider Clarke Johnstone is by Voltaire II. Also by Voltaire II -  were GV Anzac 3* Eventer in Australia, Rosthwaite Vigilante II 1.60m Show Jumper ridden by Jarmes Arkin, Visionaire 4* Eventor with Jackson Bovill, bred by Candace Bagnell (Who I purchased Jane Campion and Lola from). Super Sire Voltaire is the result of crossing two outstanding bloodlines: Furioso II and Gotthard. Furioso II produced 200 state premium mares and at least 70 approved stallions of which several are standing at stud in other continents. Furioso II has influenced the breeding industry worldwide. The full brother of Furioso II is the French stallion Mexico. His son Le Mexico is a familiar name in Dutch breeding and frequently appears in the pedigrees of successful showjumpers. Le Mexico appears in our mare Jace Miharo's pedigree also. Voltaire is second on the World Breeding Ranking of Showjumping Sires and has over 50 approved sons. Many of his offspring jump at Grand Prix level - Finesse, Altaire, Kahlua, Play it Again, Helios, Electro, Kannan, Especial, Foltaire. Voltaire's bloodlines will be highly prized and sought after for many years to come.

Dam Sires  Dam sire is none other than Preferent Stallion Nimmerdor. After an international career as a jumphorse, Nimmerdor had a huge influence on the national and international breeding.
He had 18 KWPN approved sons, Ahorn, Wellington, Goodtimes, Heartbreaker; and his 39 approved KWPN grandsons,  Emilion, Farrington, Glennridge, Kalusha, Londontimes, Matterhorn, Ohorn, Pacific, Radisson and Sydney. Across the whole world Nimmerdor has more than 40 approved stallions.
Thanks to his performance and the performances of his offspring Nimmerdor became the predicate “Preferent”. As a reward to his achievements he was awarded “stallion of the century” in the year 2000. He died in 2003 at an incredible 31 years of age.
