Acord II

Acord II was another stallion discovered by master stallion master, Maas J. Hell and he has stood at the Stall Hell from 1992 to this day, standing jointly with the State Stud Celle from 1994 onwards.

Acord II easily won his performance test in 1991, scoring 9.5 to 10 for showjumping, and 9 to 9.67 for rideability. His overall score was 146.04 scoring 138.26 in dressage and 148.47 in jumping.

He went on to the 1992 Bundeschampionate in Verden where he was reserve champion behind Franke Sloothaak and the Caletto I son, Calero. That year, five sons of the Zangersheide stallion, Ahorn Z {not to be confused with Weipke van der Lageweg’s Ahorn by Nimmerdor} qualified for the Bundeschampionate.

Acord II followed in the distinguished footsteps of his older brother, Acord I, who was an international showjumper in The Netherlands before being sold to the USA. His younger brother, Acord III was the champion stallion in Brazil. Acord II continued to compete up to Advanced level fo

r winnings of Euro 4,029, however his progeny have won over a quarter of a million euros, with 327 jumpers who have placed in competition, and 47 dressage horses. As of 2003, Acord II has an FN jumping ranking of 143, as against his dressage ranking of 106. The Hanoverian Stallion book for 2003 records that on the basis of mare tests and auction evaluations, he has a dressage score of 99 but a jumping score of 149 – with a negative trot score of 86, but a positive canter score of 129.

Acord II is out of Ribecka, who was a champion mare in Holstein. Mandarin in the fourth line of her pedigree is out of Holle, who was also the grand-dam of Ramiro. Mandarin’s daughter Urbine is the grand-dam of the international jumper and supersire, Burggraaf. On the other side, the line travels to that hugely influential Thoroughbred, Ladykiller, through his son Lancaster, who also carried the blood of the anglo arab, Ramzes and was himself a showjumping competitor. Ribecka was by one of the most influential sons of Cor de la Bryère, Calypso I.

Ahorn Z is Zangersheide through-and-through being out of THE foundation mare of the stud, the legendary Heureka. Stud principal, Leon Melchior purchased the mare from German showjumping champion, Hermann Schridde (1964 Tokyo Olympic reserve-champion and 1965 European Champion} just after he and Heureka won the 1970 Aachen Grand Prix. She was bred to the stallion Melchior ‘pinched’ from France, the great Almé to produce Ahorn Z.

Acord II has produced more than 40 stallion sons, one of the more famous is Broere VDL Atlantic, who was the Six Year Old Jumping Champion at the 1999 Bundeschampionate with Ulrich Kirchhoff. Another stallion son to shine with Kirchhoff is Action Hero - like Atlantic, he is based in Holland. In Germany his stallion sons are Acorado, Antaeus, Alboretto, Ars Vivendi, All in One and As di Villagana.

As of 2003, Acord II has produced 60 dressage competitors and 404 jumpers (52 to advanced level} for winnings of Euro 736,475.

Acord II’s entry in the Hanoverian Studbook includes the comment: "His first foals are impressive with a strong, correct conformation and above average floating movements." In 2003, Acord II was ranked 9th on the Hanoverian jumping stallion standings.
