Billy Congo is by the AES & Irish Horse Board Approved stallion Vechta, who is by the famous world class sire Voltaire. Vechta’s extended pedigree carries 3 crosses to influential TB stallions Lucky Boy, Cottage Son and Furioso and top level performance sports horses. These performers and progeny include the great For Pleasure, Heisman, Faust Z and Maximillian Voltucky, Champion young stallion at the SHB (GB) stallion grading.


Horse Scout Team are thrilled to see organic connections building on his profile, showing how well he stamps his stock as a fabulous jumping sire. Fellow jump riders endorse Billy Congo, including Steven Franks, with multiple successes with Billy Ginger, one of many Billy Congo offspring !


Horse Scout are currently advertising three horses for sale by the illustrious Billy Congo- a BE 100 eventer (Billy Opaque) and a BE Novice eventer (Billy Chicago),  both ready to progress to the next level, and a 6 year old showjumper in Ireland.



Opposition Bombshell

Eventing Bloodlines Stallion: Opposition Bombshell


Opposition Bombshell – what a stunner! Catherston Stud Hampshire Sports Performance Stallion bred to Event.

Handsome and strong black 16hh Trakehner Stallion Opposition Bombshell is a very eye-catching horse with tremendous presence, a beautiful head and  a good length of rein.

His paces are bold, expressive, and off the ground. Opposition Bomshell is standing at The Catherston Stud in Hampshire. His profile on Horse Scout shows he is SHB – GB Graded Fully Licenced with the AESB.

Unfortunately as a 4 year old opposition, Bombshell injured himself in the field so has not competed himself. He had four foals in his first crop in 2012, 3 of whom were presented at the BEF Futurity Evaluations, all 3 were awarded Higher Firsts, which gained opposition Bombshell 2nd in the Eventing Stallion Rankings.

He is standing 3rd in the All Time Sire Component Rankings on the BEF Futurity List.

He would make an excellent choice for breeders looking to add some quality: All-rounder, Dressage, Eventer, Jumpers / Show Jumper, Showing, Sports General.
