The owners of Qlassic Bois Margot (L'Arc De Triomphe x Galoubet A) have decided to retire the stallion from the sport, after a successful career that included team silver at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy in 2014 with Simon Delestre in the saddle.

The 14-year-old Selle Francais stallion will from now on focus on breeding, rather than sport. "In the past year-and-a-half he has maybe done six shows because he has eczema on his hind legs. We have tried everything we can to keep him competing," Delestre commented to World of Showjumping. "He will be breeding from now on," Delestre continued. "He is a super breeding stallion and already has some really nice foals. He did a lot for me, and there are many memorable moments. If I needed to pick one highlight, that would for sure be the team silver medal in the World Equestrian Games in Caen in 2014."
