Future Illusion is an athletic bay stallion with an exquisite head and no white markings at all.

He scored the highest mark for ‘athleticism’ at the 2005 British Equestrian Federation Futurity Show (all ages and disciplines) with an amazing 91%.
“Future Illusion has excellent conformation, strong well set on limbs & good feet all leading to quality of movement. It has been proved that he passes all of this on to his progeny who will certainly make their mark in the show ring.”
– HOYS Judge, Philip Hilton
His bloodlines are exceptional – he is by the Elite stallion & Double European Junior Eventing Gold Medallist Fleetwater Opposition, out of the Head Stud Book SHB(GB), Champion Sporthorse and Champion Hunter broodmare Future Illicit Affair.
Fleetwater Opposition’s legacy lives on through his offspring – Summersong (Olympic, World and European eventer), Opposition Buzz (European Team Gold Medalist) and many other Advanced eventers, as well as BE Young Horse Champion Opposition Heracles.
Future Illicit Affair carries in her pedigree the great Skippy (sire of Jumbo), Criminal Law (Sire of multiple 5* eventers) and Demonstrator (Grand Prix dressage horse and sire of countless County Show and HOYS winners). With the addition of top class National Hunt breeding on her bottom line which descends from the legendary Spiritus, and the Gold Cup winner Fortina, this mix of TB and trakehner blood is proving to be the pedigree of choice for modern eventers.
