Bentley van de Heffinck

An athletic, modern horse, with great looks and type. He offers an abundance of scope and athleticism.


As a 5 year old, Bentley was the Bronze medal winner at at the World Championships for young horses in Lanaken, Belgium, as well as third-round runner-up at the Belgium Young Horse Championships.

He went on to have a very successful international career up to 1.50m, but this was unfortunately interrupted by an injury.


Bentley combines all the important blood of modern jumping breeding; Clinton, Darco, Heartbreaker, all three of whom currently inhabit the world top ten sire ranking. The combination of Clinton x Heartbreaker has become the modern classic, resulting in the legendary Cornet Obelensky.

Bentley has numerous offspring competing successfully at international level. From his first crop are Fame van de Plataan, Heartbreaker van de Achterhoe (five year old French champion) and Sea Coast Ideo d’ (finalist in the international youngster tour, Neumünster).

Bentley is an improver. He suits mares who lack blood, both physically and mentally, and perhaps could do with some “chic” and scope.
