3. STAY WITH ME
And this gelding is one of them!
At the video shoot, this thoroughbred-type gelding seemed to know exactly what he was doing. The spectators were impressed by his calm demonstration of physical ability, excellent technique and seemingly limitless scope. Even when the jumps were high, Stay With Me continued to demonstrate his exceptional qualities, clearing them with ease and obvious intelligence.
Stay With Me has surpassed all expectations of him, with wins in four year old young horse classes in Belgium, followed by wins in five and six year old young horse classes and qualification for the French Young Horse Championships. The success story continues with clear rounds at international youngster tours in classes up to 1.35m this year, which means this gelding is ready for the big time next season.
His sire Bustique was one of the best stallions in the KWPN 2009 stallion test and he competes and wins at international level with Michel Hendrix. His pedigree combines the genes of world-class stallions Indoctro and Grannus, both guarantees of quality offspring. Bustique’s dam, Jutha (Grannus x Argentinus x Zeus), is an outstanding broodmare. She has the very best Oldenburg performance bloodlines. Young stallion Bustique’s first offspring are already competing successfully in young horse classes and youngster tours.
The dam’s sire Jumpy des Fontaines is by Olympic gold medal winning stallion Jus de Pomme out of a Ramiro x Alme dam. He was initially the Grand Prix horse of Patrice Deleveau and Harrie Smolders, before going on to compete at the Olympic Games in Beijing with Chinese rider Zi Zhen Quang. Today his offspring such as Joni (Leon Thijssen) and Starlette de la Qoque (Edward Levy) are successful international show jumpers. Andiamo’s reputation as a breeding stallion is no less impressive than his reputation as a competition horse, and he has taken part in Nations Cups, World Cups and Grand Prixs, as well as siring many world-class offspring.
“Oh, won’t you stay with me?’Cause you’re all I need.”
