Heroic Measures was approved at 4 years of age and this black beauty possesses three quality gaits that show much rhythm and cadence. He is very uphill horse with powerful hind quarters and good saddle position. At his approval Heroic Measures showed very good jumping ability combined with scope and good technique as well as a willingness to work while staying in perfect balance. Heroic Measures is an all-around good moving stallion with an outstanding disposition.
His sire, Platinum vom Rappenhoff is an accomplished horse in the hunter rings of Quebec. His imported dam is a daughter of the magnificent Russian stallion E.H. Biotop, an international Grand Prix dressage stallion ridden by Gold Medal Olympian, Dr. Reiner Klimke.

This dynamic pair of "Helen and Hero" have a great bond and are showing us a window into their future success.
