The Wellington Equestrian Festival had a Nations Cup week on the schedule in Week 8. The American team emerged victorious after a jump-off. Beezie Madden and Chic Hin d’Hyrencourt (s. Taran de la Pomme) contributed to the victory with a clear second round. The silver medal went to the Irish team with among them Shane Sweetnam and Kirschwasser SCF. The mother of Kirschwasser is Werly Chin de Muze (s. Nabab de Rêve), bred by Stal de Muze.
Igor and Heroine
Marco Viviani and Igor de Muze (s. Tinka’s Boy) stole the show at the CSI4* in Vejer de la Frontera. The half-brother to Fantomas de Muze and Lector van den Bisschop became fifth in a 1.50m-class. Dabelle (s. Nabab de Rêve) also showed her class. With Irish rider Greg Patrick Broderick, she ended second over 1.45m. Jérôme Guéry and Kigali vd Bisschop (s. Nabab de Rêve) added a second place at 1.40m to that. In Vilamoura, Taizo Sugitani and Heroine de Muze (s. Tinka’s Boy) proved to be in great shape with a seventh place in the GP.
Nabab de Rêve
As usual, a variety of Nabab-offspring did performed excellently all over Europe. The GP at the two star competition in Royan went great for Patrice Delaveau and Uraeus Blanc HDC (s. Nabab de Rêve), as the combination emerged victorious. Il Rubacuori (s. Nabab de Rêve) and Juan Carlos Garcia became fifth in a 1.40m-class in Spanish Carmona. Bellissimo Z (s. Bamako de Muze) did even better and won a 1.45m-competition ridden by Thibeau Spits. Finally, in Nice, Felipe Coutinho Mendonca Nagata and Monseigneur (s. Nabab de Rêve) achieved some fine results in the classes for six- and seven-year-olds.
