(HERALDIK x FOR PLEASURE) 2001 black 165cm
Imported & licensed Hanoverian Stallion.

Higgins is by the penultimate Eventing sire and the best Thoroughbred stallion in sport horse breeding during the last three decades: HERALDIK xx. One of those rare stallions who has had his progeny compete at Olympic level in all three disciplines.

Higgins dam line is FOR PLEASURE, currently the most sought after sire of international showjumpers, together with GRUNDSTEIN and Arsenik, both producers of international competition horses.

Higgins has been popular in both eventing and showjumping breeding programs. He has been used over thoroughbred mares and on mares with a high percentage of thoroughbred blood to increase jumping scope, movement and power and to improve the canter. Also over warmblood mares, that would benefit from an infusion of “blood and refinement” that will not weaken the jump and canter.

Higgins competed successfully to Grand Prix level showjumping and his progeny exhibit the quality, athleticism and his outstanding temperament. Injury has taken him away from the competition arena, but his progeny are now being ridden by the growing list of elite riders breeding to Higgins.
