Willy Balou has the looks and the brains!
This handsome colt is a Baloubet du Rouet x Arezzo VDL son.
Willy's mother Ricolette is the first offspring of the 1m30 jumping Kycolette. This young line goes back to Ginette (1m30), La Fayette (1m30), Clementine (1m40) and Ozark Dwerse hagen (1m35). The BWP Prestatiestam from which Willy Balou comes is also one with a golden edge. Also Etoile van de Neerheide, Leader van de Neerheide (1m50) and Originals 'S', are top jumping horses that originate from this line.
Rarely has there been a stallion that was so dominant, not only in sport, but also in breeding. Together with his rider Rodrigo Pessoa, Baloubet du Rouet belongs to the very best combinations in the history of show jumping. During his best years Baloubet was unbeatable, resulting in individual Olympic gold in 2004 and three FEI World Cup final wins in a row. The stallion excelled with his scope, reflexes and energy. He was ahead of his time and ranked no. 1 in the world for several years.
Ten years later we saw Baloubet du Rouet again dominate a world ranking, this time that of the best jumping sires. And also as a sire he joined the legends of breeding. Already more than a decade, Baloubet du Rouet has been producing horses that are successful up to 1.60m level. Famous offspring are Chaman (Ludger Beerbaum), Bubalu VDL (Jur Vrieling), Palloubet d’Halong (among others Jessica Sprunger) and Sydney Une Prince (Roger Yves Bost).
