June 10, 2011, 1st show at 1.20m, qualified for the 5 yo Young Jumper
Championship, Lexington, KY.
As a 5 year-old, Splendeur easily qualified for the
National Young Jumper Championships showing
in the top 2% of 5 year-olds in the US.  She is a
Premium Foundation Mare with the AHHA
(Holsteiner) and received Reserve Champion at
her Mare Performance Test.  She was retired from
competition to perform her primary job:  pass on
her exceptional pedigree to her offspring.

Her sire, Narcos II, was an international
showjumper with Eric Navet that competed in the
Seoul Olympics. Splendeur’s dam-line is one of
the best (if not THE best) for production of
international showjumpers: "
Olga."  

Sire, Narcos II, was an international Grand Prix jumper
with Eric Navet at all the major European venues and
also in the U.S. He was chosen to compete in the
Seoul Olympics and had been a competitor from
Calgary to Hickstead.  In 1991, he won the European
Young Riders Championship.  He won numerous
puissance classes, which included a record jump of
2.25m.  Under Florian Angot in 1994, he won the
European Junior Championship.  For several years,
Narcos II placed as Best Sire of Young Horses for
four, five and six year-old National Championships at
Fontainebleau.  Narcos II has great strength and a
remarkable stride, a royal canter, unquestionable
suppleness and balance and a very good back.  He
earned Elite French Stallion and was ranked as high
as #4 in the world (WBFSH) as the best sire due to his
offsprings' winnings in Grand Prix.  He is the sire of
71 approved sons.

Splendeur’s "Olga" dam-line is one of the most
coveted in the world.  
Myrtille Paulois, the #1
showjumper in the World, is from this same
damline.  
Lord de Theize, who is a 75% cousin to
Splendeur de Vie competed at the 2010 WEG,
advancing into the Final Rounds.  
Gracieux
Ardent
, who is 100% brother-in-blood to
Splendeur's dam, was the French National
Champion of 2006 and stands stud at the Haras
Nationaux (French National Stud).
