Eldorado van de Zeshoek TN
Powerhouse Eldorado van de Zeshoek meets all the expectations in both sport and breeding. Ridden by Willem Greve, the son of Clinton is currently among the best combinations in The Netherlands, making several Nations Cup appearances. In breeding, Eldorado van de Zeshoek is undoubtedly a foundation sire.
Eldorado van de Zeshoek’s dam Bijou Orai competed at 1.60m level with French rider Olivier Perreau. After Willem Greve took over the reins from Eldorado, they won the Grand Prix of Roosendaal. Thereafter, he finished eighth on the Dutch Championships in Mierlo, he won the 1.50M class at Outdoor Gelderland, was placed second in the GP of Saint Lô & the 1.50 m class of Ommen, and jumped multiple clear rounds in the Nations Cup of Lummen & Sankt Gallen.
Eldorado van de Zeshoek has established himself at the top of the Horstelex and WBFSH rankings. This he owes to his great offspring such as; Killerqueen DVM, Electric Blue, Geneve R, Grandorado TN, and Highway M TN.
At the beginning of 2015, Willem Greve took over the reins of Eldorado van de Zeshoek and immediately won the Grand Prix of Roosendaal. “Eldorado van de Zeshoek has unlimited scope and with his power he can jump all the classes in the world. Thereby he is competitive, so I’m very happy to have him in my stable!”, Willem Greve says about Eldorado van de Zeshoek.

All eyes are on Grandorado TN, being one of the greatest talents of the G-year of the KWPN. In the KWPN Performance Test the son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek earned 85.5 points and he was already described as a phenomenon. Top-level rider Willem Greve discovered many world-class horses in his career and bought a share of Grandorado too. “He is a true natural. He is a rough diamond with all the potential, in my opinion”, Willem Greve states about Grandorado.
His unlimited scope and power, Grandorado inherited from his sire Eldorado van de Zeshoek, a son of Clinton which jumps at the highest level with Willem Greve. Dam Charmieque also jumped at 1.40m level with Willem Greve, after she scored 83 points in a mare performance test of the KWPN. Grandsire Carolus II jumped at Grand Prix level with both Thomas Voss and Schuyler Riley and has produced many international jumpers. Great-grandsire Baloubet du Rouet is also of top-class level, being a top sire and winner of three World Cup Finals and Olympic gold with Rodrigo Pessoa.
Grandorado was not only the champion of the KWPN Performance Test, but also won the 4-year-olds competition at Jumping Schröder Tubbergen. Later on, Grandorado won all three KWPN Stallion Competitions in Ermelo, Roosendaal and Zuidbroek.
