Obourg

Elite BWP Stallion by Richebourg
Obourg descends from one of the best French dam lines to
date. As a young horse, Obourg was considered one of the
BEST jumpers of the Belgian Young Horse circuit. After his
importation to the United States, he continued a very
successful career at the Grand Prix level with Olympian Lisa
Jaquin. Together they would earn top placings in the Grand
Prix divisions throughout N. America.

Obourg’s sire, Richebourg, is highly ranked in the Belgian
index of show jumping sires, and is considered one of the
best stallions of his time. Richebourg is half brother to
Olympic Quintus who finished 10th in the 2008 Olympic
Games. As a 4 & 5 year old, Richebourg was crowned the
Belgian Champion, and went on to be crowned the 6 & 7 year
old Champion in France. At 8, Richebourg was crowned the
Belgian Champion with rider Jean-Claude Van Geenberghe,
and at 9 “Horse of the Year." Richebourg is an astounding
example of his superb pedigree and passes along his greatest
assets to his son Obourg.

Richebourg's Dam, Opaline des Pains, is one of the best
breeding mares in history, who produced seven Olympic
Champions! They include Jus de Pomme, Shogun, Quintus
and Tresor d’Opaline.

On the Dam side we find the famous stallion Oberon Du
Moulin, who had career winnings of over $180,000 and was a
finalist at the Fontainebleau 4,5 & 6 year old Championships.
He placed in more than 20 National and International Grand
Prix classes before he was retired to stud in 1996.

Obourg is a superb sport horse and a fantastic progenitor. His
offspring are hugely successful on the International sport
scene. His daughter Espyrante, ridden by Aiken Sato and now ridden successfully by Daniel Deusser, was
winner of the Horseware GP at WEF in 2013 and continues
their success all over the world. Another daughter, Hertogin
Odeveld, was overall champion of the 3 to 6y old mares at
the National BWP mare show in Belgium. In November of 2016 Obourg daughter, Happiness van T Paradijs (Obourg X Quick Lauro Z), won the 1,50m Speed and 1,55 Competitions at the Stuttgart German Masters CSI5*.
