The Verahof family is possibly the best eventing breeding line at this time. All descendants of the thoroughbred mare Southern Queen in combination with Vigo d'Arsouilles are suitable for high-level sport. It starts with Exterbaria van het Verahof which competed with Karin Donckers at 4* eventing and has had a wonderful international career. Full brother Fletcha van het Verahof is the best known of them all, currently competing at 5* and regularly either achieving top positions or simply winning. Leipheimer is the eight-year-old approved full brother which gained an excellent 4th place in the World Championship for young horses last year in Le Lion d'Angers. He can now hold his own against the world's best. Being included in the Belgian team at only eight years old, in the 4* competition of Waregem for the Nations Cup is actually also exceptional. Malori, the full sister, was originally used for breeding but is now following her brothers into the sport at top speed. She successfully ran her first international 2* competition in Varsseveld.  Both Leipheimer and Malori are headed for great careers in sport. For everyone who wants to start with a good foundation in sport and breeding, this is an opportunity to get this unique pedigree in the stables.
Mare Lovely Lady Dutch ES (Gemini XX from mare Malori van het Verahof from Vigo d'Arsouilles) is 90% thoroughbred and is combined with Eames de Hus. There is an extremely good chance that this will produce a lovely thoroughbred foal. In addition to a talent for jumping, Eames de Hus also passes on good movements and very extensive athletic capacity.
In 2016, our Eames de Hus was the eye-catcher of the Zangersheide autumn inspections. Eames won them over not only with his impressive appearance and likewise jumping technique, but also with his good lineage. Eames de Hus is the result of the pairing of vice European Champion Conrad de Hus with the mare, Miss Coriano (v. Coriano Z). The same dam has already produced 3 approved stallions which all perform well and sportingly: Callaho Con Coriano (v. Contender), Conzil 2 (v. Cristo) en Cassirano Del Rilate (v. Cassini I). The second dam of Eames, Erioca II is also the dam of the international champion GP horse, Something Special. This is the Holsteiner pedigree 703, which also produced Carinjo HDC, the winner of the Grand Prix in Saint Tropez and Los Angeles with Patrice Delaveau.
Eames' first descendants were born in 2018 and already look promising. His foals are modern, well-built and blessed with an excellent gaits.
Gemini XX, the dam's sire, is a clone of Gem Twist. Gem Twist was a legend in his lifetime. He had an unsurpassed capacity for jumping. He jumped at the very highest level, with various riders, and was praised for his wonderful character and commitment. Up until now, Gem Twist is the only horse to have won ‘American GP Association Horse of the Year’ three times. In 1987, Gem Twist won silver at the Pan Am Games, and a year later, this thoroughbred won two silver medals at the Olympic Games in Seoul. At the first World Equestrian Games in 1990, Gem Twist was crowned best horse in the World Championship.
Multiple descendants of Gemini XX have already been approved by the BWP.
