Galant de la Cour (dam sire)

While Galant de la Cour is a Selle Francais, his mother-line is full of thoroughbred. The dam’s sire produced many showjumpers in France. He was a private stallion in France, and as the French prefer to use the state stud, he didn’t cover too many mares. You ¿nd many international sport horses like “Mariachi” (Luziana Diniz, Athens 2004) with Galant de la Cour as the dam’s sire. He combines thor-oughbred with the most important showjumping producer in France, Ibrahim, son of The last orange who is a legend in France. The rest of his motherline is also thoroughbred with bloodlines guaranteeing jumping ability and sportive horses. Kebah xx is well known in France as well as in the Netherlands and Belgium.
