Stallion : Handel II



Handel II is a very striking stallion with strong confirmation and powerful quarters , which allow him to show his extravagant , well - balanced movement and natural ability over a fence. he has enjoyed tremendous success over the past few years with Michael Whitaker - together they have accumulated over £300 , 000 in prize money with grand Prix wins around the world , including taking 3rd place at the 2001 World Cup Final in Gothenburg.

He was the leading BSJA horse for two years in succession and in 2002 achieved unthinkable results at Stuttgard by winning both the Grand prix and the Masters and in doing so picked up two top of the range Mercedes cars !




Handel is by Wolfgang who has sired many approved sons and International Grand Prix and World Cup show jumpers, including Extreme , Frederic , Freedom , Whinney Jackson and World Champions at Lanaken , namely Illusion and Kigali.

He is by the legendary Farn who has produced many top competition horses including the great sire Nimmerdor who was selected for the Olympics. Handel's dam Clementine is by Ulft who is known around the world as a top sire of both dressage and jumping horses.

Handel II was used lightly at stud early on in his career and now has offspring successfully competing in 3 disciplines. His youngstock inherit  both his extravagant movement and his formidable technique over a fence and it is in the show jumping ring where they are proving to be most successful. Handel II now has several offspring competing at International Grade Prix level and Nations Cup.
