Approved at 3 years old during his presentation at the Selle Français, ERMITAGE then joined Belgium. Debuting on the PAVO CUP circuit brilliantly, he completed his 5-year-old season with great success. He also finished in 6th place in the Stallion Championship.
In 2021, he goes under the saddle of Gilles THOMAS with the sole objective of preparing for the high level. He still obtains rankings in the CSI YH of Opglabbeek, Valkenswaard and Lier. He ended his season with a very good performance at the World Championship for 7-year-olds in Lanaken.
The production of ERMITAGE is still very young. Its first products were born in 2018. Among them, some have already stood out:
- SIROCCO T, sold for €42,000 at 3 years old at the Z Auction
- SUNDAY JM, 3rd of the BWP stallion approval
- SOLEIL OPTIMUS, stallion approved at the BWP
ERMITAGE is a horse with a particularly pleasant model, with a good neckline and a taut topline. He also displays a good flexible and ample locomotion. He jumps with excellent technique, a lot of respect and strength. It will undoubtedly suit your less stylistic mares or whose model you wish to improve.
