Bubalu WK Caen 2014, J. Vrieling

Sire Baloubet du Rouet was not only Olympic Champion and won the World Cup Finals three times but his offspring also perform easily at the Grand Prix level.

On Bubalu’s dam line we find a superlative mare family. His dam is the Nimmerdor-daughter Zancara who carries the highest designations ‘Keur, Preferent and Prestatie’. In addition to Bubalu she foaled the approved stallion Great Pleasure and the Grand Prix jumping approved stallions Pessoa and Montreal. Grand dam, Shoraya, is also ‘Keur, Preferent and Prestatie’ being mother of Aldato (approved stallion and Grand Prix jumper), Dehlia ‘Keur’ (1.50m jumper and National Champion herself and dam of the Grand Prix jumper Quality Boy), Collete ‘Keur’ (dam of the Grand Prix of Leeuwarden winner Edminton) and Wildroos (‘Keur, Preferent and Prestatie’, National Champion and mother of the Grand Prix horses Deka and Ishan). This mareline is number 474A.


Bubalu jumped for years at the highest level with Jur Vrieling. 2014 was his final international sport season with those results crowning his many achievements. With the Dutch squad Bubalu was World Champion in Normandy and Jur’s and Bubalu’s performance was decisive for the gold medal. Bubalu also won the Furusiyya Nations Cup Final in Barcelona with the Dutch team, jumping two exhilarating clear rounds. Bubalu has many highlights in his career, such as team silver at the Olympic Games in London 2012 and becoming Dutch Champion in 2012. With the Dutch show jumping team he won the Nations Cup in Aachen, Dublin and Sankt Gallen. Bubalu jumped 24 Nations Cups in his life with a total of 25 clear rounds. Individually he won the Grand Prix of Drammen and Treffen.
