How she has grown into a beautiful mare. We sold this 3 year old mare as a foal to Stud farm Turfhorst. A daughter of the stallion Ferguson out of the mare Toulouse.
Toulouse was the full sister of the Olympic medal horse Parzival, which was part of the Dutch dressage team for years with Adelinde Cornelissen. She was eighteen years old and had fourteen foals. Genua TC (Charmeur), ridden by Jeanine Nieuwenhuis, is one of the most famous descendants of Toulouse. Genua TC is now ridden by Sophie Reef (GER) in the PSG/Inter I.
Toulouse's offspring are very successful. At the 2018 KNHS Indoor Championship, her son Genua TC won silver ridden by Jeanine Nieuwenhuis, after they had already participated at the World Cup for young dressage horses.
Bretagne-STR ( OO Seven) is ridden by Michele Inman (USA) in the Grand Prix. and Zuidenwind son Esperana-STR. performed at Advanced medium/4th level by Annet van Straaten. The Zuidenwind daughter Damanche-STR. is classified in the Advanced medium /3rd under Lischa de Vos.
Two Bordeaux daughters are still used for breeding. With these broodmares we can still enjoy of Toulouse's great dressage genes.
