Stallions we use

Balou Du Rouet

A top breeding stallion with exceptional presence

Balou du Rouet’s offspring doubled their lifetime competition winnings to EUR 128,000 in the 2010 season as a result of his first crop of foals moving up at the age of 7 to compete successfully in advanced show jumping classes. Some notable examples of Balou du Rouet’s progeny are two-times 1.50 m winner Boom Boom Bang/Sören Pedersen, Horse Gym’s Balzaci, which is already competing internationally with Felix Hassmann, and Balounito, a horse that is doing very well in two-star 1.50 m classes with Lars Nieberg. Bal Pare and Anton Martin Bauer compete on the international circuit and they won a class at the Vienna Neustadt show. Bamboucha won the Oldenburg Championship for Four Year Old Show Jumping Horses in Rastede in 2010 and Bob, an approved stallion, received an overall jumping-oriented score of 9.04 in his 30-day test. Balou du Rouet has now produced more than 32 approved offspring, including Balous Bellinie, the stallion that achieved by far the highest jumping score of 9.54 and was leading stallion overall at his 30-day test in Munich in 2009. Back in 2008, Balou du Rouet and Cornet Obolensky were the two stallions with the most offspring competing at the Bundeschampionat. In 2009, three of the finalists were sired by Balou du Rouet and in the same year Bacara qualified for the World Championship of Young Show Jumping Horses in Lanaken, later selling at auction for EUR 140,000. Balou du Rouet’s progeny are coveted auction lots. Be Bravo sold for the highest price of EUR 350,000 at the A.O.S.-Auction and Baranus went under the hammer for EUR 120,000. They were also popular among international bidders at the P.S.I.-Auction in Ankum, where three of his offspring were sold abroad for record prices.

Sire, Baloubet du Rouet, was three-times World Cup winner and individual gold medal winner at the 2004 Olympics with Rodrigo Pessoa. Baloubet du Rouet is one of the most successful stallions in the world and he has already produced a whole armada of international competition horses. The mare who won the 2010 Bundeschampionat for Six-Year-Old Show Jumping Horses, Balsandra, is also by Baloubet du Rouet and his dam, Georgia, also produced the approved stallion Cornet’s Balou.

Danaos Du Thelliet

Selle Français 16.3 hh

Selle Français horses dominated world showjumping, and Danaos is the very best of that breeding. He was a strong competitor in his own right with many World Cup, Derby and Speed class wins and placings across Europe he was only retired and brought to Australia due to an injury that curtailed his elite career.

His pedigree is rich in the blood of the superstar sires of the Selle Francais breed: Quito du Baussy, I Love You, Jalisco B, Alme Z , Furioso and Ibrahim all great performance and breeding stallions.  He is he only progeny of Quito du Baussy standing in Australia.
With limited breeding opportunities, Danaos has already produced exceptional progeny, and since he has re-located from Queensland to NSW some of Australia’s leading studs have taken advantage of the opportunity to breed to a stallion of elite European quality using live cover or chilled semen.

Cadiz (imp)

By Holstein superstar showjumper and two-time Olympian, Chin Chin, Cadiz also carries the best dam lines in Europe. Holland Rose is by Quidam de Revel, another two-time Olympian and arguably France’s most successful showjumping breeding stallion.
Chin Chin represented America with rider Jaime Azcarraga, at Seoul where he placed 6th individual, and again at Barcelona.
Quidam de Revel placed 4th individual at Barcelona, and was a member of the Bronze medal winning team with rider, Herve Godignon. He also won the Grand Prix at Hannover, Helsinki and Arhus with Danish rider, Thomas Velin.
Gold Rose, granddam of Cadiz’z dam Holland Rose, is also the dam of the great licensed stallion Calvados.
Cadiz is an impressive sight, 16.3 and a powerhouse in the making. Huge talent over jumps and his outstanding canter translates into a textbook bascule and his attitude is invariably positive and focused on the job.
