Over The Top Stables has acquired the 7-year-old talent Corbie V.V.Z for Israel’s Daniel Bluman. The mare by Cornet Obolensky x Chacco-Blue has been bred and produced by Belgium’s Evelyne Van Vreckom. 

“I found Corbie in September last year,” Bluman tells World of Showjumping. “I saw a video of her and liked her straight away. She also comes out of a strong damline; her mother Kerbie V.V. competed at 1.50m level and Corbie already has siblings successful in the sport. After we bought her, we brought her over to the US and since then we have been working on her basics at home. Last week, we brought her out to the show; she won both her classes and was champion of the division.”

“Now, Over The Top Stables, that has been a very good partner of mine through the years, decided to go in and join the journey of the mare as she looks very promising,” Bluman says. “The plan is to develop her for the top sport, as we have done with the other horses we have in partnership together – Corbie has the potential to become successful at the highest level.”

“I have a great long-time relationship with Over The Top Stables, we have five horses together right now,” Bluman tells. “For me as a rider, it is very important to be able to work with people who understand my vision, which is to create relationships with my horses and then extend those over the years in the ring. I like to put the work into the horses in order to continue to compete them myself at top level."

“I have more or less Corbie’s whole family in my stable; her mother, her grandmother, her full-brother, her aunties and several half-brothers and -sisters,” Evelyne Van Vreckom tells World of Showjumping. “We have had around twenty offspring from Kerbie, and some of them are already doing good things in the sport. Today, Corbie’s half-sister Chica V.V.Z, by Comme Il Faut, finished 5th in the 7-year-old final at the Sunshine Tour.”

“I ride the young horses we breed until they are around seven, but with Corbie she left a bit earlier as I thought she was going to be a really good match with Daniel – they are perfect for each other,” Van Vreckom says. “I am really glad, because I am almost sure we are going to see her in the top sport later – which makes me very happy and proud. For me, the rider and place I sell the horses to is really important.”
