Future Illusion is an athletic bay stallion with an exquisite head and no white markings at all. He has demonstrated his versatility by winning in the show ring as a foal, yearling, 2 year old & 4 year old across a wide variety of classes. He scored the highest mark for ‘athleticism’ at the 2005 British Equestrian Federation Futurity Show (all ages and disciplines) with an amazing 91%.
“Future Illusion has excellent conformation, strong well set on limbs & good feet all leading to quality of movement. It has been proved that he passes all of this on to his progeny who will certainly make their mark in the show ring.”
- HOYS Judge, Philip Hilton
His bloodlines are exceptional – he is by the ELITE stallion & Double European Junior Eventing Gold Medallist Fleetwater Opposition, out of the HEAD Stud Book, Champion Sporthorse and Champion Hunter broodmare Future Illicit Affair. Fleetwater Opposition’s legacy lives on through his offspring – he sired the 1st AND 2nd place horses in the 2007 4 Year Old PAVO BE Breeding Championships which was an encore to siring the 5 & 6 Year Old Winners in 2003 and 2004! At the top levels Fleetwater Opposition has Summersong (Olympic, World and European eventer), Opposition Buzz (European Team Gold Medalist) and many, many Advanced eventers.
Future Illusion’s dam carries in her pedigree the great Skippy (sire of Jumbo), Criminal Law (Sire of multiple 4* eventers) and Demonstrator (Grand Prix dressage horse and sire of countless County Show and HOYS winners). With the addition of top class National Hunt breeding on her bottom line which descends from the legendary Spiritus, this mix of TB and trakehner blood is proving to be the pedigree of choice for modern eventers.
***** With her fathers pedigree being a big contester in Arlequins Illicit Illusion's genetics, her mothers pedigree and lines do not disappoint!!
