A little bit about his pedigree

GFS Subzero's Sire: GFS Eskimo Jo

Bred here at GFS Sporthorses Eskimo Jo, otherwise known as 'Mojo's bloodlines are predominantly of show jumping providence. His sire is Crown's Ace of Pearl a stallion who has been campaigned extensively as show jumper, dressage and eventer, he is by the ZfdP International GP show jumping stallion, Crown's Blue Pearl. A horse bred from the rare and multi talented Kinsky breeding program and infused with high performance thoroughbred bloodlines. The German stallion A-Dur compliments this impressive jumping providence.

Paddy's dam is by Olympic Lux (Lux Z/Lord Calando/Ahorn Z x ​Ahorn/Nimmerdor/Vicomte Grandieux), the KWPN stallion and prolific sire of of over 15 show jumpers and 15 eventers, all competing at top level. His sire, Lux Z has made an enormous impact on Holsteiner sports breeding. As well as being an Olympic show jumper who competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he has sired over 60 show jumpers and significant numbers of both eventers and dressage horses.

Now this is where Mojo's breeding becomes really interesting!

Mojo's dam, N-She's All, a Head Stud Book and premium graded Holsteiner is 100% jump bred. Her sire, Corrado is yet another Olympian with over 120 show jumping progeny to date. He is considered as the founder of a Holsteiner sire line of his own! In his stallion performance test he scored an unprecedented 10 for both his loose jump and that under saddle.

Corrado is by Cor de la Bryere, a stallion that revolutionised the jumping horses' breeding. He too had an incredible impact in Holsteiner and he occurs in more than 80% of the top performance pedigrees as well as being credited with improving the breed's jumping technique. His sire Rantzau was from 1971-1973 the leading sire of dressage horses, show jumpers and event horses in France. He is regarded as the best thoroughbred stallion who ever entered the French sport horse breeding industry.



Corrado's dam, Soleil was a Nations Cup eventer and was herself by the extraordinary jumper, Capitol I, a stallion known to have 'put wings' on a legion of offspring. It is thanks to his influence that the Cottage Son xx line became one of the most influential thoroughbred infusions in Holstein breeding.

Holsatia IX, 'Mojo's' dams dam, was by the show jumping Olympian/World Championship stallion Landgraf I. Labelled by many as the 'stallion of the Century'. Immortalised in bronze at Elmshorn where he stands as the symbol of the modern Holsteiner Sport Horse. Her dam, Wicke III was by Caletto II (a son of Cor de a Bryere).

GFS Subzero's dam lines

I imported Filadelfia, Subzero's dam from Poland. She is a Polish Warmblood with Weikopelski ancestry, a Polish breed known for their great versatiity and exceptional temperaments. Her sire Arktos is a Grand Prix showjumper of proven International Grand Prix showjumping breeding going back through the great Coronado (sired by the inimitable Cor de la Bryere and the Nations Cup eventing mare Soleil. Dynastic showjumping bloodlines that trace back through Capitol I/Ramiro Z/Lagos through to the great Ladykiller)


On her dams side Filadelfia's super Polish ancestry includes the influential stallions Floren/ Marat x Bastian whose blodlines are to be found in many top Eastern European warmblood breeding and whose qualities bring not only great athletic versatility across the disciplines of equestrian Olympic sport but also the superb temperament that these Polish warmbloods are so highly valued for.
