Hervé d’Ive is a son of the great sire and world champion Vigo d’Arsouilles, the impressive chestnut of Belgium’s Philippe Le Jeune. At the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010 Le Jeune and Vigo d’Arsouilles were unbeatable and nowadays the oldest offspring of the scopey son of Nabab de Rêve are among world’s best. Dixson, ridden by Ian Millar, won the Rolex Grand Prix of Spruce Meadows, Calgary 2014, Golden Hawk and Shane Breen have competed successfully in many Nations Cups and Pénélope Leprévost’s Vagabond de la Pomme ended up second in the World Cup Final in Las Vegas 2015. Hervé d’Ive’s grandsire Indoctro has been one of world’s most valuable breeding sires for years and the same goes for the legendary stallions Almé and Gotthard.\r\nMany top horses were bred from the same damline as Hervé d’Ive. For example, granddam Almfee who jumped herself at international level and produced numerous international showjumpers. Famous horses like the Olympic stallion Jaguar Mail, the valuable sire Fergar Mail and the successful Grand Prix mare Katchina Mail are all bred from this same Hanoverian damline 770.
Hervé d’Ive looks a lot like his enormously talented sire Vigo d’Arsouilles, but also got lots of reflexes and carefulness from his grandsire Indoctro. Hervé d’Ive stands out due to his enormous jumping ability and great jumping technique. For both he earned an 8 in the KWPN Performance Test. Also his talent as a showjumper was qualified with an 8.
