odrigo and Rebozo in London for the 2012 Olympic Games
Double H Farm has confirmed that their lovely stallion Rebozo, well-known on the international circuit from his success’ over the last four years, not to mention Olympic debut in 2012, will stand at stud in France. The Groupe France Elevage will represent the 13 year old stallion at their exclusive location in Falaise, France. The Mexican-bred stallion, registered as a Criadores de Caballos Deportivos Mexiacanos, arrived in France last week and will begin preparing for the 2014 breeding season.
The stallion’s semen will be available both fresh and frozen for the 2014 breeding season and both Double H Farm and Groupe France Elevage are looking forward to a popular season for the stallion.
“We have had a great relationship with GFE and Arnaud Evain, who have represented our stallion, Orlando, for the past four seasons. We feel that GFE is the best place for Rebozo as he is a son of the famous Selle Francis stallion, Dollar de la Pierre and the GFE are one of the premier breeding operations in France” remarked Double H rider Quentin Judge.
Rebozo represented Team Brazil in the 2012 London Olympic Games with famed Brazilian rider Rodrigo Pessoa. The pair debuted in Wellington as a competitive combination in 2010. That same year they finished third with Team Brazil in the Nations Cup of Rome as well as third in the Spruce Meadows Spectra Energy Cup.
HH Rebozo became truly world-renowned when he finished in the final four of the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky with Rodrigo Pessoa. After winning the second qualification competition, Rodrigo and Rebozo would ride off with the Final Four. An exciting ride off between Rodrigo Pessoa & Rebozo, Eric Lamaze & Hickstead, Abdullah Al Sharbatly & Seldana di Campalto and Philippe le Jeune & Vigo D Arsouilles took place and Rodrigo and Rebozo finished fourth overall.
In 2012, Rodrigo and Rebozo represented Brazil in the 2012 Olympic Games in London where they finished 22nd overall, just ahead of Sweden’s Hendrik von Eckermann, Germany’s Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and Belgium’s Jos Lansink. They were a vital part of the Brazilian team.
We wish Rebozo the very best for his new placement in France and look forward to seeing many of his offspring enjoy tremendous success in the future.
