Hocus Pocus is a young stallion, recently upgraded to AES approved status. He is a British bred Dutch Warmblood (KWPN) born in 2012. He is an Anglo European Studbook (AES) Approved stallion and has outstanding and proven bloodlines on both sides of his pedigree. His sire is the Dutch Warmblood Zambesi, son of the legendary Heartbreaker and a Calvaro Z mare. His Damsire is the Selle Francais Vancouver and his Granddam brings Silvio 1 and Concorde into the mix too.
He has superb conformation and paces, an athletic and powerful jump, together with a laid back nature in the stable and fantastic attitude to his work.
As a 3 year old Hocus Pocus achieved an Elite score at the British Breeding Evaluations making him the highest scoring youngster shown that year. This led to his acceptance onto the Equine Bridge Pathway in 2016. Hocus Pocus was bred and is ridden by, Joseph Hughes-Jones. He started his showjumping carer in the summer of 2016 and has since moved up through the age classes, now competing and being placed at national and international level up to 1.30m.
His first offspring were born in 2017 so none are under saddle yet, but we can definitely say that he passes his markings and superb temperament onto them.
Spellbound, a chestnut filly was put forward for the Youngstock grading as a foal with the AES and was awarded a grade 2.
Houdini, a chestnut colt was sold as a foal to Holland due to his outstanding bloodlines.
