Everyone knows that the horse business can be tough, but sometimes it is really unfair. A stallion like Estoril, who has a great character, is sweet, and has a mega talent for the big sport, gained more and more fans at his side. He made a great impression at the Pavo Cup last year, where he and Emmelie finished in 3rd place. This year at the World Cup for 6-year-old dressage horses she made a very strong impression and finished in a very nice 5th place in the Final. We hoped to be able to start next year in Ermelo with Emmelie and Estoril at the World Championships for 7-year-old dressage horses, but this should no longer be the case. Last Friday night he passed away due to a bacterial infection of the appendix. Estoril spent 3 weeks at the Faculty in Utrecht where they examined him, but the problem was not clearly visible. After consultation, we decided to have him operated on by, in my opinion, the best surgeon in Europe, Tom Mariën of Equitom. The first operation seemed successful, but his fever continued to rise too much in the days after the operation due to inflammation. As a result, Estoril had to be operated on again and what Tom already feared became true; the appendix was already so affected by this bacterial infection that Estoril unfortunately could not be saved.

Sire Zhivago makes his mark in the Small Tour with Theo Hanzon. Dam Unette II is a well tested, keur preferent daughter of Gribaldi. She previously produced a designated stallion by Vivaldi. Grandmother is the preference mare Unette, a daughter of the English thoroughbred Cadmus xx. Unette is dam of the third level dressage approved KWPN stallion Mondriaan, a third level dressage horse by Cocktail, a fourth level dressage horse by Akteur, a Z-dressage horse by Balzflug, and two Z-jumping horses by Le Mexico. Great-grandmother is Nannet, a star preferent performance mare by Hurricane. The dam line then continues with Vottie, the crown preferent daughter of L'Invasion.

Official KWPN Research Report 2012:
Estoril is an honest and reliable stallion with a good attitude. The stallion is very willing to work and can be worked well. The walk is pure and has good scope. The trot has good scope with an expressive use of the foreleg. The canter has good leg technique and more than sufficient scope. In movement Estoril has an appealing front, a lot of suppleness, a good balance, but still needs to gain strength. Estoril has a lot of talent as a dressage horse and gives his rider a very good feeling.

Generously developed stallion that is well built in the dressage horse model with an appealing forehand. The head is speaking. The neck has good length with a slightly heavy head-neck attachment. The neck has good length, shape and muscling. The shoulder has more than sufficient length and good placement. The wither has good development and good length. The back has sufficient length, well-muscled and slightly sunken. The loins are more than sufficiently connected and have more than sufficient muscling. The croup is slightly sloping and has good length and muscling. The trouser muscle should be longer. The foreleg has more than sufficient length and correct position. The hind leg is correctly positioned. The foundation is well developed and of good quality. The feet are well developed.

Stable behaviour:
Honest, reliable stallion, easy to handle, and quiet in the stable.

Breeding advice:
In addition to the dressage horse model, Estoril can add foreleg use and attitude to breeding.
