In memory of Vigo d'Arsouilles (1998-2019)

Tuesday, 13 August 2019
Thank you

At the end of July, Vigo d’Arsouilles sadly passed away at the age of 21. 

With Belgium’s Philippe Le Jeune in the saddle, Vigo d’Arsouilles became World Champion in Kentucky in 2010. Vigo d’Arsouilles also won team bronze at the same championships, as well as representing Belgium at the Europeans in 2009 and 2011 and further at the Olympic Games in London in 2012 - his last international appearance. In 2009, the pair was 4th in the prestigious Grand Prix of Aachen and during their career they jumped several double clear Nations Cup rounds for Belgium at venues such as Dublin, La Baule and Rome. 

Vigo d’Arsouilles also proved himself as a breeding stallion and has sired many international Grand Prix horses such as Ian Millar’s Dixson, Penelope Leprevost’s Vagabond de la Pomme, Edwina Tops-Alexander’s Ego van Orti, Alberto Zorzi’s Fair Light van't Heike, Darragh Kenny’s Go Easy de Muze, Shane Breen’s Golden Hawk as well as Cian O’Connor’s Irenice Hortan to mention a few.

Here we look back at some of the many magic moments in Vigo d’Arsouilles' fantastic career, remembering him as the champion he was.
