    Default Emilion? What does he bring to the table ...

    Bloodline wise? Ability wise? Marketability wise? Temperament wise?

    What offspring of his are out there and what are they excelling at?

    Are they regarded as Amateur friendly horses or more of a pros ride?

    What strengeths and weaknesses does he bring to the equation?

    What types of mares does he cross the best with?

    Many thanks!

    I have ridden several Emilion jumpers and I have found them to be Spicy. Safe, but definitely Spicy.

    I was also told that they do not have the strongest loin connections and should be bred to something with a short coupled strong back.

    In the one video clip I found of him, he looks very forward, very brave, bouncy and light in behind and yes - *spicy* would be an appropriate term as well!

    VA Tech had a nice Emilion mare that went thru the last PAS sale, I was hoping to have her come live in WI, but it wasn't meant to be.

    He is a Keur stallion that has produced some very impressive showjumpers, I guess based on his production, I would not be surprised if there was some 'brilliance' in there. I would bet if you contact Kathy Hickerson or Janko from VDL they would have more detail for you.

    the ones I know have been a bit slower to mature than other horses. Spicy is a good word. A bit long.

    We have a 5 yo stallion by Emilion, he has been jumped up to 1.10m over courses. Very brave, scopey and intelligent, spicy is good description but he is not hot, very rideable and loves his work, he will be in Zone 2 young jumper this year, I will post a video of Amillionaire on youtube in the spring. If you are looking for a jumper bloodline, Emilion is good, Neither he nor Amilionaire are wonderful movers.

    I had an Emillion mare - spicy is a good description and she had a very definite opinion.

    she did not stay sound so she has gone on to be a brood mare.

    I knew an Emilion a few years ago. He was a lovely looking horse, successful showjumper up to about 1m40 level but went lame before he was a teenager. Shame as he was talented.
