What a performance of the first crop of Mosito van het Hellehof at the Belgian Championship for Young Showjumpers. In the final for 5-year-olds, no less than 9 of the 67 qualified horses were direct descendants of Mosito. Good for a share of almost 14% (1 in 7). The best result was eventually for Katrijn Van Hoecke and Morice F Z (ms. Bamako de Muze). The duo finished in eleventh place. The other Mosito's that reached the final were Quartz de Muze (Koen Verdegem), Quinta van 't Klavertje Vier (Frederik Wuytack), Qarvaljo D' Or (Ruben De Grave), Quebec van de Rozenberg (Raf Kooremans), Qosito van de Koekoek (Kurt De Clercq), Qnokke de Muze (Dieter Laheyne), Qualithina van 't Ruytershof (Ben De Craene) and Quolonko van het Weidse Hof (Kurt De Clercq).
Still in the final for 5-year-olds, we saw three descendants of Elvis Ter Putte (Quiero with Janne Devriendt, Elégance Bleue VDM with Katrijn Van Hoecke and Queen B van 't Paradijs with Astrid Rooms), Two descendants of By Cera d'Ick (Que Sera JW van de Moerhoeve with Frederik Wuytack and Queen Cera STB-DDB with Dries De Bock), Taran de la Pomme (Qwantreau with Frederik Wuytack and Thor Ter Wilgen with Emma Rooms), Le Blue Diamond van 't Ruytershof (Liberté La Cita Z with Bart Hermans and Quirine van 't Vennehof with Anton Willemsen) and Nabab de Rêve (Quickly de Rêve with Chaouki Rijnders and Nobel van de Vrombautshoeve Z with Peter Boelens) and a descendant of El Torreo de Muze (Quinta Dwerse Hagen with Lauranne Spits), Denzel van 't Meulenhof (Quintero van de Kruishoeve with Wouter Lamsens) and Bamako de Muze (Quaresma van 't Paradijs with Astrid Rooms).
The offspring of our stallions also did well in the championship for 4-year-olds. Katrijn Van Hoecke and Baron - RR Z (s. Bamako de Muze) can even call themselves Belgian champions. Bamako had another descendant in the final with Babilu F Z (Katrijn Van Hoecke). There was also a place in the final for our breeding product Reborn de Muze (s. Malito de Rêve, Katrijn Van Hoecke) and for Ridge Blue G (s. Le Blue Diamond van 't Ruytershof, Jelle Geysen).
Piaf Horta (s. Gemini xx) jumped to the silver medal at the BC for six-year-olds under Arnaud Gaublomme. Also a double clear round in the final and an eventual sixth place was realised by Raf Kooremans and Karmijn ES (s. Vigo d'Arsouilles). Equally qualified for the final were I’m So Fancy VDM Z (s. I'm Special de Muze, Katrijn Van Hoecke), Primavera v/d Dennehoeve (s. Fantomas de Muze, Annelies Bastenie), Perle-Fin 55 (s. Denzel van 't Meulenhof, Pieter Van den Bergh) and Pecorino de la Linière (s. Bamako de Muze, Clement Fortin).
Congratulations to all!
