Ahorn is descended from the famous Holstein family 242, and is related to Joost, Alcatraz and Locarno. His mother produced 4 approved stallions, and so far, 3 international showjumpers. Ahorn competed at the top international level, consistently placing in World Cups and Grand Prix competition. He represented the Netherlands in Nation's Cup competitions and was short-listed for the Barcelona Olympics, which earned him the prefix ¨Olympic¨.
Ahorn's offspring perpetuate their sire's success, with a large number competing at international level. Ian Millar's Grand Prix jumper, Promise Me's damsire is also Olympic Ahorn. Olympic Ahorn is also the sire of Feizal (Mario Deslauriers), Eurocommerce Geneve (10th at the 200d World Cup Final) and Iron, who represented Italy in the 2000 Olympic games.
Ahorn is a fantastic producer of broodmares. He is the sire of European Champion mare Helena, reserve European Champion Korenbloem, Dutch Champion mare Haciende, Firette who was a 5-time UTV qualifier, and Geminka keur who is the dam of Dutch dressage star Kelvin. At the 1996 World Championships for young horses at Lanaken, Ahorn was the only KWPN stallion to have two progeny placed. He is also the sire of Neckar, the top priced horse at the 1998 Equilibra Challenge auction.
As well as top competition horses, Ahorn has produced 8 graded sons. In recognition of his outstanding contribution to Dutch breeding, Ahorn has been awarded ‘Preferent’ status by the KWPN.
