A son of the famous show jumper, 'World Cup IV,' Wellesley is a 17.0 hand Elite Chestnut Stallion by SPS Esplanade, who combines his fathers beautiful temperament and powerful appearance with his dam’s elegance and lightness. Not only did Wellesley demonstrate powerful movement, but also a jumping style with great scope that he passes on to his offspring. His dam, SPS Esplanade, has produced many successful show horses in the hunter, jumper and dressage disciplines.
Wellesley’s offspring have proven to be exceptional performance horses. Many of his foals have been champion at their foal inspections and have followed through on the early promise with successful show careers. One of his first son’s, Wolfe WF, has achieved many Hunter Championships on the Southern California “A” Show Circuit, as well as USEF Zone Champion Awards. Additionally Wolfe WF has received AHS year-end awards in each of his show years. He has achieved extraordinary feats in both the Professional and Amateur divisions (see video below).
Wellesley’s daughter Waltzing Mathilda WF, has also earned Championships at many prestigious “A” Circuit Southern California horse shows, including Half-Circuit Champion at the Thermal Desert show. His daughter, EM Wildflower, was the highest scoring mare in her MPT (7/8/8, and 9/8 for jumping).
Wellesley PF, a very accomplished producer of successful competition sons, such as Wolfe WF, Waterloo WF, Wolsey WF, Wycliffe PF and daughter Waltzing Mathilda PF, who all demonstrated pure quality, class, and a abundance of talent as top show hunters competing at national levels.As a competition horse himself, competing up the Prix St. George level with German rider Elke Mulholland (shown left) Wellesley won many titles and was top of his class at his Stallion Performance Test.
Wellesley PF is also a foundation stallion of Pedigo Hanoverians, a very accomplished sire, grandsire and great grandsire of many of our top producing broodmares. His offspring a mirror of his great type, quality, rideability, stylish jump, and modern Hanoveriann type. Sadly, Wellesley PF passed away in the summer of 2017, but his legacy lives on though his outstanding offspring.
