She is the dam of the Selle Français approved stallion Versailles and grand dam to the Grand Prix jumper Olala de Buissy and several international show jumpers, such as Marquise du Reverdy, Lydric du Reverdy, Lynx du Reverdy, Othello de Petra, Lucie de Reverdy etc.

The stallion was honored as Dutch Champion of the 5-year-old jumpers and as a 6 year old he placed 7th in the finals of the Dutch Championship. Following that he became provincial Champion of the 1.30m class. Global Express continued to collect winner’s ribbons becoming reserve champion of the KWPN stallion competition in 2016, 2017 and 2018. In several competitions he led the honor rounds, for example, as a 5 year old he won the classes at Peelbergen and Zuidbroek.
