Glenfiddich is the only approved son of jumping phenomenon Bacardi VDL (Corland x Kannan). With Janika Sprunger Bacardi VDL has made it to the highest international level placing highly in several Grand Prix and World Cup classes. In 2013, Bacardi VDL won the silver medal at the World Championships for 7-year old jumpers in Lanaken.
In the dam line of Glenfiddich we see sires, Corrado I, Nimmerdor and Jalisco B, who contribute to his exceptional pedigree. Those famous stallions jumped at the highest level and produced numerous show jumpers with excellent talent for the big shows. Among their offspring are Corradina, Heartbreaker and Quidam de Revel.
Glenfiddich finds secure origins in one of France’s best dam lines. From this comes, among others, the Olympic stallion Papillon Rouge, the full-brother to Glenfiddich’s great-grand dam Olivia Rouge. Dam Tolivia is awarded ‘Elite, Prestatie and Preferent’ and grand dam Nolivia is ‘Keur and Preferent’, producing the 1.45m show jumper Volivia VDL. Some famous horses from this dam line are Bleu Blanc Rouge, Saphin Rouge, and Quartz Rouge.
Glenfiddich is a well-developed stallion with amazing scope, great technique and a lot of jumping intelligence. He canters with a great deal of power and performed a good KWPN Stallion Test. In total he scored 79 points, to include an 8.5 for his scope. For canter, rideability and attitude, and talent as a jumper he scored 8’s.
