  • International Eventer & British Eventing Winner
  • Three-time National Champion Sire of Futurity Eventers (with all his first 3 crops)

In his first full season eventing in 2023 he went from BE100 (1m) to Intermediate and CCI2* in the space of 3 months, winning a BE100 on his dressage score of 18, taking 2nd in a Novice, 3rd in and Intermediate and 11th in his very first CCI2*.


Comments from the AES Stallion Licensing Panel:

…”Every now and then we encounter a young horse who has future greatness stamped all over him. And this simply breathtaking son of Levisonn is such an example. Bred to jump and event, with gaits of such quality that they will also be of interest to many dressage breeders, this young horse certainly breaks the mould. We are excited about what future will bring and delighted to have such a great opportunity for our AES breeders to be the first to be able to use him…”

Guilty Pleasure is not just a beautiful animal, he has been purpose bred to be a genetically pre-potent progenitor of stock, providing breeders with greater predictability of type and performance potential in his offspring. He is the planned result of a deliberate crossing of 2 very influential bloodlines which enabled the genetics of 2 outstanding full sisters to be brought together - Hirtin and G-Casablanca.

Hirtin is the dam of "Sire of the World" Levisto Z, and G-Casablanca is the dam of Cantoblanco - Champion of the Holsteiner licensing for jumping.  Not only are these 2 mares the dam's of these 2 quite exceptional stallions, they are also full sisters to the internationally successful stallions Clinton I and II, Clinton H and Clintus - what an incredible group of full siblings!

Hirtin is the dam of the "Sire of the World" Levisto Z, who in turn sired the Double Champion of the Holsteiner Performance Test, Levisonn - sire of Future Guilty Pleasure.

G-Casablanca is the dam of the Champion of the Holsteiner Licensing, Cantoblanco - dam-sire of Guilty Pleasure.

By line breeding in generation 3 of his pedigree we aimed to create genetic prepotency without compromising heterozygosity and hybrid vigour.  Although it's very early days for this young stallion, he appears to be demonstrating all that we could have hoped for from this breeding and much more.  His conformation is near flawless, all 3 paces are quite exceptional, his jump is powerful and careful, and his temperament intelligent and trainable.

His dam Guilty Secret (by Cantoblanco) is a Grade 1 AES mare and was the first foal from the BEF Elite mare Future Gold Digger - the all time Highest Scoring BEF Futurity Event Foal (2005-2012), and maternal sister to the Olympic Individual Silver Medallist and 3-time Winner of the CCI**** Kentucky Horse Trials, Winsome Adante, as well as the Life Approved (AES) and Life Graded SHB(GB) stallion Future Gravitas, and the CCI** mare Future Genie.

Guilty Pleasure's first foal born 'Future Classic Pleasure' became the National Futurity Foal Champion and the Elite Foals Registration Tour Eventing Champion - something never achieved by a foal before. She also won at two of the most prestigious shows in the UK - The National Hunter Show and the Show Horse Association Championship Show.   From his second crop the exceptional foal 'Future Iconic Pleasure' emerged - he went on to be the only Eventer awarded Elite status at the 2020 British Breeding Futurity (from 129 entries) but was then the highest priced Eventer sold at the British Breeding Elite Auction, bought for a professional rider.

This young stallion is quite simply the full package -

  • World Class 5 generation pedigree packed with performers
  • Outstandingly correct conformation
  • 3 exceptional paces
  • Natural and careful jumper
  • Intelligent and trainable

Very rarely does a stallion truly show the potential to sire international performers in all of the 3 olympic disciplines, however the AES Licensing panel felt this young stallion was one of these rare examples.

WFFS - Negative

Showjumping breeders - Guilty Pleasure's sire Levisonn was Double Champion of the Holsteiner Performance Test for both Jumping and Dressage at both his 30 and 70 day test. Not just that but his dam-sire, Cantoblanco, was Champion of the Holsteiner Licensing for Jumping. Guilty Pleasure's own licensing score for jumping was above average at 8.5, and his dam was awarded Grade 1 status by the AES inspection panel which included a jumping assessment.

Dressage Breeders - Guilty Pleasure's sire, Levisonn was Double Champion of the Holsteiner Performance Test for both Jumping and Dressage at both his 30 and 70 day test.  Guilty Pleasure's scores for ALL 3 of his paces were 9 or above. Scores this high across all 3 paces are generally only seen in pure dressage stallions. His jumping pedigree provides dressage breeders with the opportunity to improve the canter, whilst his 9.5 score for trot and 9 for walk should provide mare owners with confidence that the quality of other paces will not be compromised. His damline also contains significant thoroughbred blood, bringing additional refinement to the mix.

Eventing Breeders - His direct damline descends from the Elite mare Juswith Genoa, who produced the Olympic Individual Silver medallist in Eventing at the Athens Olympics, and 3 times winner of the Kentucky CCI****, Winsome Adante, as well as the CCI** Eventer Future Genie, and Life Graded SHB(GB) and Life Approved (AES) International Event stallion Future Gravitas (who was himself No.1 ranked Sire of Eventing Youngstock at the BEF Futurity). Guilty Pleasure's dam-sire Cantoblanco is also related to the current shooting star of French Eventing breeding, Upsilon through his grand-sire Canturo, who is the direct sire of Upsilon.  Future Guilty Pleasure has more than 50% thoroughbred and AA blood meaning you do not have to sacrifice speed and stamina in order to introduce jump or movement, and all this is backed up by a motherline that is proven to produce International Event horses.
