Nabab de Reve not only delivered outstanding sportive results for Stal de Muze with his rider Philippe Lejeune but had also a big impact on breeding. In 2002 he was named horse of the year, in 2010 the title als BWP ambassador followed. The very same year his offspring Vigo d’Arsouilles jumped to gold at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky with Philippe Lejeune and also won team bronze. Nabab de Reve won the same medal in 2002 in Jerez de la Frontera.
The son of Quidam de Revel is definitely one of the best sires in show jumping. His successful offspring like Vido d’Arsouilles, GLOCK’s London N.O.P., Valentina van’t Heike, Walnut de Muze and many more continue his legacy.
Rest in peace, amazing horse …
