Hop Mouche has moved to Belgium

14 May 2020

Patrick Donnay of the Pont Rihen stables, in collaboration with BD Horses, has just acquired the young stallion Hop Mouche, out of the first generation by the GFE stallion, Candy de Nantuel (Luidam x Diamant de Sémilly). His dam is by Mr Blue, and is a maternal half-sister to the performer, Joy's Mouche (Eclair des Bois), who has won many international competitions under the saddle of Pius Schwizer.


Hop Mouche was spotted by Gilles Botton when he placed third in the qualifier for the Selle Français Championship at Lamballe at the end of last year. He will start his sporting career under François Bossu’s saddle.
