Affectionately known as Cowboy, he has a huge canter stride and great technique. He is careful, brave & scopey. Bellhaven Secret is by Cruising and out of one of Belhaven’s top thoroughbred mares, whose pedigree includes Blue Peter, Sovereign Path.
Bellhaven Secret is a perfect sire for eventers looking to add a good motor, stamina, agility, jump & type. His full sister is the mother of Bellhaven Carouse (licenced Stallion, 8yo Aust Champion) and Bellhaven Jazz (Classified Elite mare & World Cup Showjumper herself). He has jumped Grand Prix himself, even with limited opportunity.
Sir: By the super sire “Cruising” – Cruising is the only stallion in Ireland to have a 5* rating for his own showjumping performance and the performance of his offspring in both eventing and show jumping. His high profile progeny include Flexible (USEF horse of the Year 2012), Mr Medicott (USEA Horse of the Year 2012), Mr Cruise Control (who topped the British Eventing rankings for 2013) and Mic Mac du Tillard (Winner WC Goteborg 2011).
Cruising is the highest Irish rated stallion in the world of breeding today – for SJ (Top 30) and Eventing (Top 3). Over the course of his career, Cruising won numerous Grand Prix’s and World Cup qualifiers, including Grand Prix win placings and appearances in nation cup teams which include Grand Prix – Aachen, the greatest Grand Prix’ in the world (1999), Dortmund (1999), Lucerne (1998), San Marino (1996) and Wolfsburg (1996) and was second in the WC finals in 1999.
Dam: “Join Hands” – not only one of the most important and favourite of the Bellhaven broodmares, but a successful jumping mare in her own right. Join Hands goes back to Copenhagen and Blue Peter. We just exported two of Bellhaven Secret’s progeny overseas, and we currently have a young mare in the sport by him.
He has jumped Grand Prix himself and is still sound at age 20 after many years of competition. He is perfect if you want to add engine, toughness and wish to refine a mare.
