Bio and Performance Record:
Marcus, the youngest member of the OBF stallion string has one of the most interesting and impressive show jumping pedigree of all. Within three generations of Marcus you find Indoctro, Clinton and Heartbreaker; over the last decade, these incredible stallions have all been ranked by the WBFSH to be among the top jumper sires worldwide.
Marcus has beautiful modern-type conformation and was awarded the excellent score of 80 for overall impression (type) by the Belgian Warmblood Judges in 2016. Of note was his “good conformation and proportional topline, correct legs, good supple walk and good expression”. For jumping, he also received a very high score of 84 with the following comments “Good supple balanced canter, very good attitude and ability, good technique and use of neck and back.” In 2016, Marcus was provisionally approved as a Stallion by the BWP / NAD. At four year’s old, Marcus started his career in the young jumpers where he has already exceeded our expectations displaying his athletic ability and mindset to handle all new challenges with ease and confidence. He is quick, light, responsive and careful, with a natural affinity for jumping. Riders say Marcus is smart, sensible and uncomplicated.
Judging by his first two crops of foals, Marcus has a strong propensity to throw size. All foals have been straight and correct with beautiful conformation. They have been simple to handle with very good minds.
