Greenacres Stud


Stallion: Olympic Ahorn ( Featuring Hyazinthe & High Valley Z )




Ahorn was bred by the legendary breeder Wiepke van der Lageweg by Nimmerdor  ( and should not be confused with the horse Ahorn Z ) . His dam was Hyazinthe who was an own daughter of Ladykiller who is featured elsewhere on this web site.

Hyazinthe was the sort of mare that most breeders dream about - the sort of mare that a wise breeder can use to establish a dynasty . Not only is Hyazinthe the dam of Ahorn but also the dam to 2 national show jumpers and 3 International competitors.

Ahorn was a reputable show jumping horse and his abilities earned him the title ' Olympic ' when he was short listed for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He frequently jumped in the World Cup and Grand Prix competitions. Not only was he a prolific show jumper on the International circuit , but he then went on to become a top sire  renowned for being a  producer of quality  sports horses.
