Baloubet du Rouet's birthday was celebrated in Lyon on Sunday evening !

20 April 2014 - After a great moment of sport showed during the CSI3*, the Grand Prix Airbus Group in Lyon on Sunday evening at Eurexpo, there was a surprise in store for the public: the birthday of an extraordinary horse and competitor, Baloubet du Rouet.

Baloubet du Rouet was the best show-jumper of his generation by far and he is the greatest sire, today. Ridden by Rodrigo Pessoa the Galoubet A-son won the world Cup Final three times and he also won gold at the Olympic games in Athens.
For the occasion, the stallion made the trip from Portugal, where he now lives. At 25 years old, he created a sensation arriving in the arena, still showing the incredible energy that turned him into a legend around the world.
As luck would have, Chaman, who won the Grand Prix on Sunday evening, is actually the son of... Baloubet du Rouet. Bravo champion!
