the ride behind the ribbon begins with the bloodlines behind the dream

Pilandro Blue

Sire - Plot Blue

Plot Blue needs no introduction - winner of the World Cup final 2010 and numerous Nations Cups and Grand Prix - he was the only horse to jump double clear in the Nations Cup at Hickstead 2011.  He has won the Rolex Masters in Paris, the Lyon Equita Masters, and the Munich Championship.  Fully proven as a competition horse, his first foals were born in 2010 to a very limited number of mares, and in 2011 he was made available to just 12 mares in the UK - the same in 2012.

His sire Mr. Blue is known not only for the power and scope of his offspring, but the ease and sense with which they ride.  His international competitors include Sapphire B, Santana B, and World Number 1, Simon.  Mr Blue's mother Acarla is full sister to the stallion Zucarlos.

 His dam Illotte has produced the very well known stallion Oklund (by Holland), a Grand Prix jumper and sire already of GP horses, and the 2004 Dutch free-jumping champion.

 Grand dam Santa Fee was mother of two international jumpers - Peramo K and Pershing.

 2012 - winner of the 5* GP in Gothenberg; winner of the Longines Grand Prix in St Gallen.

 

Bert van de Oetelaar purchased Plot Blue as a three-year-old, after which, via Harrie Theeuwis, he went to Switzerland’s Katrin Somogyi, in whose name Plot Blue is still registered. Werner Muff has been Plot Blue’s trainer since he was a five-year-old. Under Muff, the excellent jumper achieved impressive results at the Grand Prix level and proved himself an important asset to the Swiss team. After his team win at Rotterdam in 2006, he competed in the World Championships in Aachen; and in 2007, he was on the team which showed in the European Championships in Mannheim, which finished just outside the medals, in fourth place. Plot Blue’s greatest achievements  have been under the saddle of his rider Marcus Ehning, who showed the stallion starting in 2008. In addition to the World Cup Final, the duo’s wins included the Rolex Masters in Paris, the Lyon Equite Masters, and the Championat of München. Plot Blue, who was used for breeding on a limited basis, was awarded KWPN-recognized status in 2012.
