Details : Stood his first season at Ard Cherrymount Stud in 2000 and covering a full book of mares. Cruise On is very similar in looks to his father, and with both his parents being International showjumpers he offers the best of Irish breeding and performance.

Cruise On began showjumping as a 5 y'old where he  went on to qualify for the Dublin Horse Show that year. He showjumped successfully the following year up to grade 'C' level and as a 6 y'old he joined the Irish Army Equestrian Team where he soon became grade 'B'

"Probably the best young horse I ever sat on" said Commandant John Ledingham when asked in February 2000 (rider of Kilbaha)

Unfortunately Cruise On had to retire from the Army Equitation Center due to an injury in the stable having already won on tour with Capt. John Ledingham shortly beforehand.

   The very first 'Cruise On' progeny we saw jump, a 3 y'old filly out of a Flagmount Diamond mare.

Sire;  Cruising ISH

Winner of the Aachen Grand Prix, Cana Cup in Spruce Meadows, won the World Cup qualifier at Millstreet for two consecutive years, and was second in the World Cup Finals in 1999. He is already the sire of the International performers - Cruiseline, Point Blank, Rinc Cula Abu, Cruiseway.

Sea Crest  (Cruising's sire) was a registered Irish Draught stallion and a Grade 'A' showjumper with Edward Doyle. Sea Crest was also responsible to numerous successful progeny and many at International level competing showjumping and Eventing.

Dam:  In Clover ISH

Also an International showjumper, she was first produced by Paul Darragh (after she had already produced Cruise On) and was exported to the USA where she continues a successful career showjumping. In Clover is by the well known and famous sire Clover Hill who bred such International horses as Cagney, Flo Jo, Clover Leaf, Skyview, Lahorna Queen etc..
