PLAISIR D'AMOUR



Plaisir d' Amour was a rising international dressage star of magnificent quality, and had won or placed in many Grand Prix Specials during 2002, under regular rider Markus Gribbe. He was ranked 32nd in the world in the BCM standings for dressage horses as of 9/02. Three times he participated in the Bundeschampionate, where he advanced to the final. In competition in performance class one, he was three times a participant in the Dressursport competition. Under his regular rider he has achieved many international victories in Grand Prix, Grand Prix Specials and Grand Prix Keurs.

Plaisir d'Amour was a successful participant in the World Equestrian Games in Rome 1998 and won the bronze medal in the Swiss championship. He maintained his peak form in competition while fulfilling his stallion duties. His pedigree is of great interest for dressage, he being a son of the wonderful dressage influence, Pik Bube I. Miracolo xx is consistently a transmitter of high quality athleticism.

With a dam by Furioso II, his performance horse genetics are secure. Plaisir d'Amour's foals are also performing well, with 75% of his foals achieving premium status. Several of his foals and riding horses have achieved top prices at the Vechta auction. His daughter, Puppenfee, was 1b Brillantringstute of the Oldenburger elite mare show in 1997 in Rastede and breed ambassador at the Europachampionat in Brussels, 1998. The Plaisir d'Amour son Paramount was in 1998 a finalist at the Bundesreitpferde-Championat.

Sadly Plaisir D'Amour died unexpectedly of complications following surgery to treat a bad case of colic in 2009.  I still have a few doses of his frozen semen remaining in my tank.  He will live on through his foals born here on our farm.  Tettiana, out of Tirana, by French Kiss, is our first Plaisir D'Amour foal.  She looks very much like her sire.  Tettiana will remain here as a broodmare for us.
