Sire: Grandorado TN
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 finals of the kwpn stallion competitions in 2016 and 2017! He also became second in the Stallion Competition in both Kronenberg and Zuidbroek.

Grand Sire: Eldorado van de Zeshoek
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 last year. In breeding, Eldorado van de Zeshoek is undoubtedly a foundation sire in the making, with already three KWPN approved sons, namely Grandorado TN, Grodino and Highway M TN.
In addition, Eldorado van de Zeshoek’s dam Bijou Orai currently competes at 1.60m level with French rider Olivier Perreau. With the Olympic stallion Clinton as his sire and the highly successful Toulon as dam’s sire, Eldorado’s pedigree is more than outstanding.
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.
