About - Well-known under the name of Horsegym’s Balzaci, this stallion has competed among the best show-jumpers of the world under his rider Felix Haßmann. Their career is characterized by outstanding successes such as the victory of the Global Champions Tour in Monte Carlo in 2018, winning the bronze medal of the Riders Tour and the Grand Prix of Munich in 2017, the victory of the Global Champions Tour in Berlin in 2017 and second place in the STAWAK Trophy at the CHIO Aachen. Balzaci is characterized by his competitive spirit, his extraordinary rideability as well as his outstanding vision and smartness in the jumping-course. His phenomenal scope is combined with a natural caution and the great willingness to win. Toughness, elasticity and his really good character make him a world star.
Performance - His performance record is really impressive: 23 international victories, countless victories and placings at CSI5*-level (1,60m), Nations Cup gold medal as well as 179 placings in advanced classes in total. More than half a million Euro in prize money was gained by the extremely fast Balzaci during his sports career. After nine extremely successful years in the international sport Balzaci crowned his last year with great achievements such as the win of the show-jumping ranking in Neumünster and second place in the qualifier for the Longines World Cup at the CSI5* in Leipzig. Now, in a really good shape, this beautiful stallion, gifted with smartness and charisma, has the chance to pass his top traits on to the next generations at Bonhomme stud.
Progeny - By now, Balazaci was clearly focused on the top sport and therefore has only produced 10 progeny, but they already have an international winning sum of more than 60,000 Euro. All along the line: Barolo/Felix Haßmann competes successfully in 1.55 classes, Blue Moon/David Jennings (USA) is successful in 1.50m classes, Bandolero/Angelique Rüsen celebrates achievements at 1.45m level, Bachus/Felix Haßmann wins in advanced (S*) classes and, just recently, Balzaci’s youngest son, out of a Lordanos dam, was licensed at the Westphalian licensing where he was auctioned for 47,000 Euro.
Sire - Balou du Rouet shines among the top ten of the WBFSH ranking for the world’s best jumper-sires. He is the most successful son of the famous Baloubet du Rouet, who made history as one of the most successful horses of all times, being Olympic winner and treble World Cup winner under Rodrigo Pessoa. Beside Balzaci, he sired WC individual and EC team medalist Bianca/Steve Guerdat (SUI) as well as more than 60 licensed sons.
Damline - Luisa was also dam of the international 1.60m show jumper Balance, a full sister of Balzaci, who, too, collected int. successes such as the victory of the prestigious Grand Prix of the Golden Whip in Nörten-Hardenberg under Felix Haßmann. His dam’s sire is the thoroughbred-typed KWPN stallion Ex Libris who produced top horses for both dressage and show-jumping. Pandur (by Praefectus xx), who celebrated international victories under the saddle of Heinrich-Wilhelm Johannsmann, can be found in third generation.
