Old Data and New Research On Gestation Length

Alchimist is the whole package!
Alchimist is the whole package! From being super athletic in the show ring, including elastic gaits and an easy jump with lots of scope; to being a laid back gentleman to handle. Alchimist is bold and brave, with big movement that turns heads! Alchimist has beautifully correct confirmation, a kind eye, and strong good feet. Alchimist is seen as a great refiner. His foals are prime examples of this, being well put together, strong and healthy, with easy trainable minds! His first offspring are just starting under saddle and are showing lots of potential.

Alchimist's sire, EUROCOMMERCE VANCOUVER ridden by Gerco Schroder, is internationally renowned; with numerous wins and placing's at the 1.60m level and described by Gerco as "a stallion with unlimited jumping ability". Alchimist is the grandson of "Le Tot De Semilly" who is considered one of the greatest breeding stallions of the Selle Francais stud book of today. As he passes on his strength, style, suppleness, carefulness, and exceptional mind to his descendants. Horses like Diamant de semilly/Itot du Chateau/Lamm de Fetan/Made in Semilly /Orient Expres and Emerald to name a few, are descendants from Le Tot de Semilly.

On Alchimist dam side we see the best Anglo Arabian horses Holland has produced over the years. With Gagson Wimborn being known as the best for producing wonderful jumpers and eventers. Famous stallions like Gag xx and Exillio xx are all at the root of this wonderful stallion.

At the 2014 CWHBA Stallion performance test, Alchimist scored 10's for Character and Temperament, 9 for trot, 8 for canter and 8 for scope and technique. "I couldn't wipe the smile of my face while on this horse! He is so fun and makes the jumping easy!" -Stallion inspection rider-
