* BEF ELITE ‘1st Premium’ Graded Event Foal – 90%
* Highest Graded Eventer (All Ages) – Keysoe


Future Perfect Illusion’s breeding combines the speed & stamina of a proven classic distance race mare with a young sire whose family is packed with Olympic Event, Showjumping & Dressage horses & who is passing movement, fabulous temperaments & outstanding conformation to his foals. A real show and competition prospect.

Future Perfect Illusion was Elite graded by the British Equestrian Federation as a Foal and was extremely successful at County level Shows. Given his outstanding conformation, athletic movement and bold and scopey natural jump we have decided to retain him as a potential stallion prospect.
