Ben Nevis is an interesting bred son of Concreto. Concreto, a son of the legendary stallion Contender, was premium licenced at the Holstein stallion show in 2000 and was placed in international 1.50m jumping classes.His dam Hafolia is out of mare line 173 and goes directly back to the mare Defolia who is the full sister of the famous stallion Capitol I.

The damline from Ben Nevis is probably the best you can find in France. Kouglof II and Uriel both belong to the best of French breeding and have sired many approved sons and international sport horses. The dam from Duchesse, Gueule d'Amour, also produced Pavlova des Malais, the mother of Flipper d'Elle, one of the best Selle Français stallions at the moment, who very successfully jumped at international Grand Prix level. He was a permanent fixture in the French Nations cup team with his rider Laurent Goffinet. In 2006 he won ten different International titles, including the Grand Prix of St Lô, the CSIO ***** of Gijon, the four star Grand Prix of Deauville and the four star Grand Prix of Bremen (Germany), he was also selected for the WEG in Aachen.

Ben Nevis has a full sister, Zevida, who took the Sport Horse Championship at the Royal Highland Show in 2007 before she started competing successfully in Brittish Eventing. Another daughter from Duchesse is Wyona, who is jumping at 1.40m level in British Showjumping with Laura Hutt.

As a three year old Ben Nevis won the Scottish National loose jumping Championships. In January 2013 he started his international CSI** show jumping career and successfully competed in the 7 year old classes at 1.30/1.35m. Beginning of 2014 he was sold to China where he continues his jumping and breeding career.

Ben Nevis’ offspring are modern, well developed and long lined. They move with a lot of self carriage, scope and expression. In 2009 his daughter Ettrick Lilly was the highest graded filly foal at the KWPN mare and foal grading in Scotland. In 2010 his son FBI did the same in the colt section. Glen Nevis Scais scored an Elite Premium with 9.07 points at the BEF Futurity grading in 2011. In 2014 F.B.I. became his first Licenced son with the Breeders Elite Studbook.
