Marlon has a beautiful exterior and 3 good gaits. At the age of 3, he was reserve-champion of the Stallion Selection in 's Hertogenbosch. In the Stallion Competition, Marlon was placed high many times: 1st, 2nd and 3rd. He has a lot of power and a good technique, and in his tests, he received an 8 for jumping and was placed 3rd. He is currently jumping at the Z level. Marlon's first production of 3 year olds is very promising. They impress by their beautiful type, good movements and ability to jump high. Two of them were immediately selected for the second and third inspection and both of these have been approved for the Ermelo Stallion Test. Marlon is very attractive for the breeding market due to his unique bloodlines.

Paternal line

Marlon's Sire Sire Nurzeus (who is sometimes called ‘Zeus’ but actually started life as Gordios) is a balanced mix of Selle Français and Anglo Arab blood. His sire, the Anglo Arab, Arlequin is a distinguished sire of international showjumpers and eventers, Zeus’ full brother, Figaro (ridden for Zangersheide by Harry Wouters Van Den Oudenweyer) and sister, Diablesse (ridden by J. P. Bonneau), won at international level, as did Enc’ Or, Elysée II, Fidelité, Filou Charriére, Fourni Rouge and Izmir - all by Arlequin.

Maternal line
Marlon's maternal line also guarantees performance; his mother and grandmother competed at 1.30 m. His grandmother sired six foals who jumped at Z level or higher, such as Dino who jumped at the Olympic Games in Barcelona. Mother's sire G. Ramiro Z has become famous world wide and is duly called the "Euro-stallion" of his day. Preferent Ramiro decends from the famous male linage combination Raimond - Ramzes x - Rittersporn xx. In 1969 Ramiro was the absolute top stallion of his performance year and was not only used for breeding but was successfully show jumped. He was ridden by Fritz Ligges and excelled in his puissance performances, up to 2.2 meters as well as in competition where speed was essential.

Marlon has already proven himself by passing on the jumping gene to his offspring. Many of his progeny are winners in the jumping ring all over the world. Horses like Ramon who won the 5-6yr old division at the Whittaker Championship in Ireland, Sylvano who became Champion of the 5-6yr old in Helsinki and Terrific who won the class for 6yr old show jumpers at the West Canadian Championships and also won the 1.30m class at Spruce Meadows.
