The acclaimed VDL Stud has bought the promising breeding stallion Falaise de Muze (Wandor van de Mispelaere x Nabab de Rêve), the son of Harrie Smolders’ Walnut de Muze. Ridden by Belgium’s Annelies Vorsselmans, Falaise de Muze impressed in the international ring up to 1.50m level and in the Netherlands, his oldest offspring look very promising in young horse competitions and stallion shows.

In the spring of 2015, an injury caused a break for Falaise de Muze’s sports career, but currently the chestnut is working on his comeback. At Stal de Sjiem, Jeroen Dubbeldam and Annelies Vorsselmans are bringing the spectacular stallion by top sire Wandor van de Mispelaere back to work. “We hope he will compete again in sport, but we bought with a breeding purpose. We think he truly is a great sire already,” Wiebe-Yde van de Lageweg of VDL Stud states about the purchase of Falaise de Muze.

Falaise de Muze is a son of Harrie Smolders’ long term number one horse Walnut de Muze, the mare who competed at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010. With the legendary Qerly Chin as his granddam, it is no surprise Falaise de Muze passes on his own talents.

From his first breeding years, the talented horses Gravin ES and Garfield ES are selected for the WEF Sport Horse Auction next month in Wellington and several other offspring stood out in young horse competitions and at the KWPN Stallion Show.
