Hy Hopes HH
Hy Hopes HH, MMP (Contefino/Captitol I/Sacramento Song xx)
Hy Hopes HH is a 2016 Holsteiner mare that was a Premium foal at her Holsteiner inspection, receiving a 9 for movement. As a two year old, she was Site Champion mare at her Holsteiner inspection, as well as scoring high enough to be placed into the Main Mare Premium book (and becoming the site champion). As a two year old she also showed at a Spy Coast Farm Young Horse show, placing second in a very competitive two year old In-Hand/At Liberty Class, with all scores over 8.0 (including 8.5 for quality of gaits and 8.5 for overall athleticism). In the two year old free jumping class she was also second, behind her stable mate, with scores of 8.0 for technique, front legs, hind legs, bascule and scope, with the comment "Potential FEI Show Jumper" written on her score sheet.
Her sire Contefino (Contender/Corofino), competed in the 1.60 m in Europe. He has proven to be a very successful sire with a relatively small amount of offspring, having produced several Grand Prix jumpers as well as approved stallions.
Hy Hopes' dam, Hy Fly, jumped at the Grand Prix level and comes from a strong family of jumping talent. Her dam Miranda, under the name Chicoa, was shown in both international level eventing AND showjumping. Hy Fly is also the maternal half sister to Chico S-R, a showjumper and licensed stallion, as well as maternal half-sister to international showjumper Van Schijndel's Iranda, under the saddle of Piet Raymaker
In 2019 Hope produced her first foal, by Chin Quidam VDL (sold in utero), and is currently in under saddle work.
