Acclaim won the NY AHHA approvals in 2006 with 50 bonits and 9's for his jumping. Legendary German author and Holsteiner Verband judge Joachim Teitz said of Acclaim "very modern stallion, very good type, very good canter, freejumping shows great technique and scope". Acclaim's sire Acorado, scored perfect 10's in jumping at his initial approvals, won his 100 day test in Germany with an astonishing 149 in jumping and 127 in dressage, ranking him among the worlds best. Acorado went on to win the Bundeschampionade at 5 and was destined to become a jumping legend when he died unexpectedly at only seven. But Acorado remains today one of the best jumper producers in the history of the sport. Acclaim's Dam Siddhartha won the Elmshorn Mare Site Championship and competed internationally . She was sired by European and World Cup champion Silbersee from a motherline Stamm 4232 that produced Olympic jumpers including Coup de Couer and Marimba La Silla.

Acclaim stamps his foals with elegant heads and necks, strong feet, and a beautiful gallop as well as an explosive jump with excellent technique. He complements mares that need elegance or intelligence and a catlike athleticism to jump at the higher levels. Foals seem to share his friendly, outgoing personality.

Acclaim is licensed for breeding in the following registries: AHHA, GOV, RPSI, and sBs.
