Future Illusion x Cavalier Royale


Future Cavalier Illusion’s breeding combines a proven showjumping mare by the No.1 RANKED SIRE OF EVENTERS (WBFSH RANKINGS 2008), Cavalier Royale, with a young stallion who is already the No.1 RANKED SIRE OF EVENTING YOUNGSTOCK (BEF FUTURITY 2009) and is also making an impact in the show ring, with multiple County Show Winners. He is descended from a family that is packed with Olympic Event, Showjumping & Dressage horses & who is passing movement, fabulous temperaments & who has already sired the BEF Champion Eventer in 2008 and a number of Elite graded youngstock. His Sire Fleetwater Opposition produced the Olympic horse Summersong and the CCI**** horse & European Team Gold Medallist Opposition Buzz.

We chose this cross to produce a horse with substance and jump, but with the additional quality required for speed in the xc phase, and the early indications are very positive.
