Terms  - €800+VAT, allowing unlimited attempts with chilled or frozen semen, for one named mare in one breeding season. If the mare is certified not pregnant before the end of September then a 50% credit applies to spend on a Schockemoehle / Helgstrand covering the following year. If the first AI of the year is July 1st or later, the credit the following year is 100%.

Please note: Schockemöhle prioritise mares on site in Germany for chilled semen from their stallions, so popular stallions may be unavailable in the peak of the season with no notice. We strongly advise that you have a second-choice stallion in mind also standing at Schockemöhle, in case your first-choice stallion cannot be supplied.

About - This son of the great For Pleasure is a performance stallion of unique quality. This is also reflected in its exemplary attitude and approach to jumping. In 2019, For Cassius was appointed to the premium ring at the Mecklenburg licensing. At his HLP 2021 in Adelheidsdorf, he once again knew how to inspire with his athletic manner and his seemingly limitless possibilities.

Sire - The father For Pleasure is already a legend during his lifetime. He won under Lars Nieberg and later Marcus Ehning twice Olympic team gold in Atlanta/USA and in Sydney/AUS as well as three European Championship team golds in Mannheim, Hickstead/GBR and Donaueschingen. And then there are the individual successes, above all bronze at the European Championships, two gold medals at the DM, second place in the World Cup final and in the Riders Tour, if you limit yourself to the major results in the list here. When For Pleasure said his farewells in Aachen in 2006, he'd stacked up more than 1.8 million euros to his name. In 2003 he was already at the top of the WBFSH ranking of the world's best jumping sires. The For Pleasure progeny were always among the best, such as the Aachen and Calgary runner-up Fit For Fun under Luciana Diniz/POR, the Barcelona winner Funky Fred with Marcus Ehning, the Aachen-Munich 1.55-metre winner Epleaser van't Heike under Christian Ahlmann, the London winner Hello Forever with Scott Brash/GBR and the La Baule winner Flora de Mariposa with Pénélope Leprévost/FRA etc. In Germany alone, more than 60 licensed sons of For Pleasure are registered, including the successful Forsyth FRH under Toni Haßmann, who is, among other things, the father of the Olympic bronze winner Fine Lady under Eric Lamaze/CAN.

Damline -The mother Cathleen is half-sister to Markus Brinkmann's CSI5* show jumping horse Pikeur Dylon (v. Diamant de Semilly).

The mother father Cassini I was successful in the course with Franke Sloothaak. He won the Grand Prix of Arnhem/NED and the Nations Cup in Aachen. In Germany, more than 70 of his sons were licensed for breeding. The lifetime profit sum of his descendants amounts to over five million euros.

In third and fourth place in the pedigree are the Holstein performance guarantors Carry and Landgraf.

The third mother Zuerich IV brought the licensed stallion Cordano (v. Capitol I) and Nisse Lüneburg's two-time Derby winner Calle Cool (v. Concerto II).

From the Holsteiner tribe 18 A 1 come numerous licensed stallions, such as Quvee Prestige (v. Quidam de Revel), For Ever G (v. For Pleasure), Littlefield (v. Loutano), Acolino (v. Acorado I), Centauer Z (v. Capitol I), and top jumping horses.
