His dam, Toverfee is a daughter of the KWPN Approved TB stallion Erdball (xx). In addition to Powerfee she produced the 1.60 show-jumping horse Ricardo.

Just some of his outstanding achievements...

Exquis

This is the stallion who, with Harrie Smolders, beat Olympic Gold Medalist and World No.1 show-jumper Hello Sanctos and Scott Brash to win that Big Tour in Doha.

Exquis Powerfee, one of the show-jumping world's longest and most successful performers, epitomises resilience and durabilty. At 18 years old he retired sound.

He was then subjected to all the clinical and radiological tests and deemed suitable for 5* Approval - possibly one of the oldest sport stallions to achieve this accolade at his age.

PROGENY

Exquis Powerfee has only a handful of progeny as he covered few mares while he competed - the decision of his owners, Team Exquis and Euro-Horse's Axel Verlooy of Belgium.

But topping the bill is the 1.60 mare Lucca, based in New Zealand.

EXQUIS POWERFEE: IN PEDIGREE, SPORT AND SOUNDNESS - NO WEAK LINKS!
