Lars Irco G x Future Illusion x Ben Faerie xx


Future Cornish ??? is a stunning filly by the proven producer Lars Irco G (Irco Mena x Imperious xx), out of the Elite mare Future Cornish Illusion (by Future Illusion), who in turn was out of the CCI**** mare Cornish Faer (by Ben Faerie xx).

This youngster is a very exciting breeding and competition prospect as she combines exception genes -

Future Cornish ???’s dam is Future Cornish Illusion who is Elite graded and whose sire is Future Illusion (who was the No.1 Ranked Sire of Eventing Youngstock at the BEF Evaluations in 2009 and who in turn is by the Elite stallion Fleetwater Opposition). Future Cornish Illusion’s dam is the 4* Event mare Cornish Faer (short-listed for the Atlanta Olympics), by Ben Faerie xx.

Future Cornish ???’s sire is Lars Irco G who sadly died at a young age after being kicked by another horse and breaking his leg, however before his untimely death he was showjumped by Nelson and Rodrigo Pessoa in Belgium, and had lots of wins nationally and internationally. He won the international 7 year Championship in Arnheim with Rodrigo Pessoa, after just four days before winning a national 7 year old Championship in Belgium, then ridden by groom/stable jockey Guilherme Mattar.

Lars Irco G

1991 – 2001, dark grey, 1.69m
by Irco Mena out of Lars Imp by Imperiusxx
King of Diamonds - Highland Flightxx
Breeder: Ann & Lars Gustavii
Approved stallion AES and Zangersheide

Father Irco Mena, grandfather Irco Marco and great grandfather Irco Polo all jumped Internationally and in WEG, European Championships and Nations Cup. In only his second season Lars Irco G won the 7 year old Championship in Belgium and Holland, was 2nd in the German championships and won a national Grand Prix. In 1999 he won the international Grand Prix in Monza, and was placed in the international Grand Prix in Cinzano, Italy. He later was selected to jump for Canada, but unfortunately broke his leg in an accident and could not be saved. His best son must be the international LarChin Gii who also is approved as a stallion, the impressive daughter Liira Gii jumps international, as does Rosgan Irco Dora, voted Best British Bred mare 2007. Other international progeny to mention are Larinne G, Larmell G and Larco G, while Kells Pride is successful in eventing and Loganlea Irco (competing name Bravado) is advancing successfully in PSG dressage, with Inter 1 and 2 in sight. This is a remarkable achievement as half of foals born are competing at international level.


The sire Irco Mena, international jumper, ridden first by his owner/breeder Ann Gustavii, and later by Royne Zetterman, represented on several occasions his country in Nations Cup, including WEG in Hague, where they were individual 22nd. Irco Mena were also on the Nations Cup team in Luzern 1994, together with his full sister Marcoville, when Sweden for the first time won the Nations Cup for 45 years. The second time the two horses were together, they repeated the victory. Marcoville, ridden by Maria Gretzer, a well known international jumper, was also 6th individual in the Olympic Games in Barcelona. Irco Menas other full sister Mirca, combined brood-mare duties with jumping internationally under the Belgian rider Evelyn Blaton in WC and International Grand Prix. Irco Mena is leading Young Horse sire 1995 and 1996 in Sweden.

In 1998 he is the first stallion ever to have 4 offspring in World Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken representing Swedish breeding (of 16 in total). Irco Mena also is the highest rated stallion in Sweden, 32% winning progeny per covered mare!

Irco Mena already have several horses on the BCM list of international jumpers, such as So What 908, Nick of Diamonds, Dream On, Snowman, Kataleis Fahrenheit and Zixten.

Irco Menas sire Irco Marco, himself a well known international jumper, has been leading sire in Sweden for many years, and is also the sire of several other international jumpers, including Chouman, 5th in WEG in Hague with Nelson Pessoa and Feliciano, ridden by Maria Gretzer. Irco Marcos sire Irco Polo also jumped internationally under Paul Weier.

Irco Marco have quite a few jumpers on the BCM list of international horses, such as Feliciano 823, Chouman, Marcoville, Irco Mena 763, Niklas 916, Oliver III, Greve Molke 937, Optiebeurs Mirca, Burning Love, Milka, Moira, Primula, Simple Simon, Otto Marco, Mirco and Irco Scott.
Irco Menas dam Ballymena Park was sister to Felton, well known international jumper under Buddy Brown, USA. Her sire Menelekxx and maternal sire Battle Burnxx (sire of Boomerang – Eddie Macken) were two world famous Irish thoroughbred sires of international jumpers.

The dam Lars Imp, herself an impressive jumper, has two full brothers jumping internationally, one for Ireland and one for Switzerland. This is the same pedigree as Master Maddox M (Hansueli Sprunger).
Her sire Imperiusxx is one of the most well known sires of international jumpers in later years in Ireland, Vivaldi (Nelson Pessoa) and Master Maddox M are examples. Hook (formerly Hatton) now also jumps for Canada in World Cup classes

Grandfather King of Diamonds, himself a successful jumper and one of the best sires of international jumpers in Ireland, as was Highland Flightxx. Special Envoy (Nelson & Rodrigo Pessoa) is another famous horse with the pedigree of King of Diamonds – Highland Flightxx. The grandmother Cinders and great grandmother Julie Anne has also given several international (including Olympic) jumpers.



Shows exceptional scope, carefulness and boldness with very athletic movements. He jumped his first affiliated classes in February -97, ten double clear rounds in a row (being placed or winning in virtually every class), to the delight of breeder/ owner/rider Ann Gustavii who has now competed the third generation of this stallion line (starting with Irco Marco). 

Lars Irco G is now jumping with the same ease with Nelson and Rodrigo Pessoa in Belgium, and has with them a lot of winnings nationally and internationally during 1998, for instance:

He won the international 7 year Championship in Arnheim with Rodrigo Pessoa, after just four days before winning a national 7 year old Championship in Belgium, then ridden by groom/stable jockey Guilherme Mattar. In Nivelle in August he was well placed in all starts and finished by winning the National Grand Prix. The following week he was again double clear and well placed in the big stallion class in Gesves. Thereafter in Donaushingen (int.) he was 2nd in the 7 and 8 year old class, ridden by Nelson Pessoa.

He qualified for the World Championship for Young Horses in Lanaken end of September (1998). At the same time he jumped for the judges of the stallion grading, and impressed enough to be approved in the Zangersheide Studbook!

Later in the year, (his second year competing), he has jumped several double clears in 1.45 Grand Prix and being placed, including the International show in Mechelen in December, where he was placed every day of the 5 days he competed.

He started 1999 with the Sunshine tour in Spain, having several respectable placings, including in two Grand Prix. In May he went to Italy and won the International Grand Prix of Monza, gained some more placings, and was also 5th in the International Grand Prix of Cinzano. We would have more to tell, but we still have difficulties getting results through, not to mention pictures!

Sadly, he had a short competition career with Monica Campbell, as unfortunately he was kicked by another horse so badly, that his front leg was broken, and he had to be put down.



Eldest progeny born 1995, lovely quality, big, elegant in type and, as their sire, very athletic. Shows exceptional scope and ability when loose jumped, very impressive indeed. His son Lar Chin G (out of the full sister to Chouman) and Larinne G, ended up jumping international, for Sweden, Norway, USA and Italy. We still have the very talented  Liira G  and there are many more.
Lar Chin G was approved as a stallion with the SHB (GB) in november 2000.
