Fifteen years ago, he was one of the first clones to hit the headlines. Since then, many others have followed in his footsteps and his offspring have made their own way onto the competition grounds. The original, E.T. FRH (Esprit x Garibaldi II), made his mark under the saddle of legendary Austrian rider Hugo Simon by winning two consecutive World Cup finals in 1996 (Geneva) and 1997 (Gothenburg). He was a silver medalist at the European Championships, and the pair also secured 4th place at the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996.

Today, his clone’s offspring, although there are only quite a limited few, are indeed present on the competition grounds. Eliot Brimbelles has made a name for himself under the saddle of Titouan Schumacher by performing at the 4* and 5* levels, while Ethanol Vert Z also performs in international Grands Prix under the saddle of Gabriele Bresciani. You can also find his other progeny on the international scene such as Ethic Z who is ridden by Lara Postillon, Etourdi Z ridden by Clémentine Bost and Etcetera Z who is ridden by Hélène Palmer.

For 2021, E.T. Cryozootech has returned to his stable at the European Horse Center in Mont-le-Soie for the breeding season, where he has been entrusted to the care of the center's team, joined by the young and passionate veterinarian, Elise Evrard.
