STALLION OF THE MONTH JANUARY: BALOUBET DU ROUET (GALOUBET A X STARTER)
Jan 31, 2021
Year of birth: 1989
Studbook: Selle Français
As a young 5-year-old stallion he was not exactly a good jumper. "He was a bit lanky and uncoordinated," said Rodrigo Pessoa, who later won many big prizes with Baloubet. But a year later, in 1995, they were already at the start in the final of the French championship for 6-year-old show jumpers. This stallion was cooperative, eager to learn and really had an unusually high intelligence.
