At first we dealt with mediating different horses from Latvia and Russia. We succeeded in taking horses to train them and then selling mainly to Finnish customers. But this process (working only for money, not for results) didn’t give us satisfaction and we finished it.
In 2000 the company started a new age with showjumping horses from Belgium. We bought two stallion foals, one mare and three young stallions. All of these stallions have licence for breeding in Estonia, mainly for Estonian sport horse breeding. We have sold four of those stallions, but we have a right to breed with them.
By today we have had already foals from daughters of those stallions, the best of them are taking part in high level competitions. Terror competed in different Grand Prix in Europe with rider Gunnar Klettenberg. A Big Boy and Rein Pill have won several 140-150 cm events and achieved high places in Grand Prix competitions. In 2009, A Big Boy was sold to Belgium. 6 year-old World Champion A Pikachu de Muze was trained and competed by Peeter from 2000 to 2006. In 2006 A Pikachu de Muze was sold for a high price to Paul Schokemöhle. Couple of mounths later A Pikachu de Muze and British rider David McPherson won the six year old World Championships at Lanaken. Ownership of the horse changed and in 2007 CSI 5* in Monte Carlo rider Gregory Wathelet and A Pikachu de Muze won 1st, 3rd and 5th place.
In breeding we have used our local mares for having foals. By today we have already covered mares for the next generation.
