Sire - I'm Special de Muze

In every way, I’m Special de Muze is unique. First of all his pedigree: sire Emerald has had countless victories with Harrie Smolders, including the World Cup of Washington in 2015, the Nations Cup of Falsterbo in 2015 and the Nations Cup of Aachen and Gijon in 2013. As a sire, the son of Diamant de Semilly x Carthago also does a great job; his oldest offspring compete already at 1.45m level. I’m Special Muze’s dam Walnut de Muze has also won a lot all over the world, ridden by Harrie Smolders. Just think of Grand Prix and Nations Cup wins in Madrid, Dublin, Doha, Wellington, Mechelen and Calgary. Ridden by Christophe Barbeau, Granddam Qerly Chin jumped the World Cup final in Milan and was reserve for the Olympic Games in Athens 2004. Afterwards, Qerly Chin turned out one of the best broodmares ever to be in Belgium.

Rider Zoï Snels confirms the great qualities of I’m Special de Muze. “I think he has a 100% score on every aspect: he is top careful, has scope, has a great rideability and has a super attitude. If he continues to develop like this, he is a horse for the future!” In 2013, I’m Special Muze jumped clear in all six rounds of the Belgian Pavo Stallion Competition, in 2015 he won the GMB Competition for six- and seven-year-olds in Drachten and in the same year he won the Showjumping Stallions Class at Indoor Brabant.

Sire: I'm Special de Muze TN

Dam Sire -Cassini II

Cassini II, the younger full brother of Cassini I, was approved in Holstein in 1996 with a high jumping index. Unfortunately he was injured when young and did not compete in sport although is now sought after as a sire due to his quality and talented offspring. At his Licensing he achieved high scores for his jumping as well as for his character and temperament. Cassini I & II are sons of the great Capitol I. Capitol I was on the top of the WBFSH (World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses) rankings lists 2000-2001. There are over 25 approved stallions by Capitol in Holstein. Worldwide there are many more approved sons and in Germany alone there are 564 registered sport horses which have won in excess of €5.3 million in prizemoney. Capitol I was a valuable foundation sire in the Holstein stud book.

Cassini II's dam Wisma is by Caletto II who was awarded Champion of his year when he was licensed in Holstein. Caletto II, one of the best sons of Cor de la Bryere has been a significant influence in jumping breeding even though he only stood for 4 years. He is the sire of Classic Touch who took Luger Beerbaum to win gold at the Barcelona Olympics. Wisma also produced the young Holsteiner Verband stallion Clarimo (by Clearway) along with a full sister to Cassini I & II who has produced the licensed stallion Lovari (by Lasino). Another daughter of Wisma, Mira (by Lansing) is the dam of the licensed stallion Cassaro.
