New to Bonmahon Sport Horses for 2017 is the international Showjumping stallion Ulysses m2s and sire of Shane Breens international show jumper Millfield Ultymate currently competing at 1.60 level.

Ulysses m2s is a very blood, modern, handsome type sport horse standing at 1.70 cms tall,  he possesses fantastic movements and is highly athletic, he is quick in front and uses his back well over a jump. Ulysses m2s temperament is outstanding. He has three excellent gaits with good conformation and comes from a very strong dam-line.

As a show jumper he was competed as a 4-year-old in the Netherlands, when he was crowned Champion at the Euregio Denekamp Stallion Show with Eddie Brinkman.  Returning to Ireland in 2006 he placed 4th at the RDS Dublin Horse Show in the 5 year olds and won the 5-Year-Old Cavan Classic in Ireland when ridden by Clem Mc Mahon and then sold to Belgian Junior rider Rossella de Simone, where he competed up to 1.40m – 1.50m level  with some great results before an injury in the stables sustained at the CSI Valkenswaardt curtailed his career

He descends from a top class dam ( Gudrun)  who has already bred the Cruising sired 1.60m performer Orashi and also the approved stallion ‘President’  one of the up and coming stallions already having produced a string of 1.60m performers . This damline has produced at least nineteen international show jumpers and seven approved stallions.

Ulysses’s sire Ekstein`s most famous son is the Olympic competitor Joel and his most famous grand-son is Eric Lamaze`s Olympic Gold Medal Winner Hickstead. His dam sire Voltaire is also the sire of prolific showjumping stallions Kannan and Concorde. Voltaire progeny are renowned for their good temperaments and being very sound ‘healthy’ horses.

Ulysses’ x-rays have been approved by AES, WSI, KWPN, and Danish Warmblood veterinary committees.
