Euro Sport Heartbreaker has competed with wins to 1.50m and has definite World Cup potential.
Easy to ride, and very well educated on the flat. He is licensed with the Hanoverian studbook, and also the NZ Warmblood Studbook, ranked ‘Principal’. At his Hanoverian Licensing in February 2015, the following report was given:
Euro Sport Heartbreaker had achieved the right to be inspected for licensing through his performance in Showjumping at the prescribed level. Hartmut Wilking was impressed with his jumping technique and looseness through his whole body. He has a balanced and correct foundation. He has a really calm temperament and is quite a handsome fellow. His sire Heartbreaker is one the THE top stallions in Europe. Hartmut also commented that Euro Sport Heartbreaker would be a desirable breeding stallion even in Europe. His oldest progeny are 6 yr olds and showing big potential. They are of an uphill build, with excellent canters, great ride ability and impressive jumping ability.
