Under his permanent rider, Isabell Heckmann, Heops won the advanced (S) level show jumping competition for licensed stallions held at the Equitana, took seventh place in the German Championships for lady riders, won the Grand Prix of Rhineland-Pfalz and took the Vice Champion title in the Weser-Ems Championships. In 2008 he also placed among the best several times in advanced (S) level show jumping, e.g. the Grand Prix of Rastede (3rd place).
In 2009, Heops' son, Come close (stationed at Klosterhof Medingen) was the best jumper stallion of his year at the Trakehner licensing where he received a score of 10.0.
Three sons from his first crop were licensed.
