Gaia Morinda is a splendid filly who was born on the 17th of June
2017. Yes, she is not a coloured foal as we had hoped, but…she is
so lovely that we have not been disappointed. She is SUMPTUOUS,
with a wonderful style and enormous presence. The cross between her
mum, Viki du Lurentin and our young stallion Ulyss Morinda has been
a great success. We have repeated the cross and Gaia should have a
full brother or sister in 2017.
Gaia Morinda, who bears the name of the mother goddess in Greek
Mythology (the mother amongst others of Uranus the sky, Aphrodite,
Cronos…) is a lively filly, intelligent and very close to people.
She sticks like glue. And…she is our first filly from Ulyss and she
is also the grand daughter of Stacy, our very first brood
We’re in a hurry to see her as a three year old over poles!!!
Viki du Lurentin
Her father, Ulyss Morinda whose base bloodline goes back to the
Grand Prix mare UTRICULE (ridden by Marc Roguet) was as a six year
old Hunter Champion of France, Elite, then came back to the Jumping
world. He was approved as a Selle Français stallion as a seven year
old then he brought home the Young Stallions Masters at St Lo and
was classed as “Very Promising” by the ANSF.
At eight, he confirmed this, winning in CSI 3* over 1.40m and
competing up to 4* in classes up to 1.45m. And at nine in 2017, he
is already placed over 1.50m.
In 2018, Ulyss is confirming his quality, being placed 2nd at the
start of the year in the 1.50m (3*) Grand Prix at Bonheiden (just
half a second off Daniel Deusser), placed 7th in the 1.50m Bourg en
Bresse Show Jumping (4*) and jumping in the 1.55m at Maubeuge with
and incredible effortlessness. He is now performing in Grand Prix
Gaïa Morinda's mother, Viki du Lurentin who showed a very big jump,
was injured as a four year old. Her father Napoleon d’Es by
INDOCTRO passed on the blood of the founding fathers CAPITOL I,
CALETTO II (Cor de la Bryere) and WELLINGTON (NIMMERDOR). This
isn’t counting ALME, a bit further back, via his son Joyau d’Or who
had great produce (amongst others the father of the mother of Ideal
de la Loge)!
Her grand mother Stacy (also presented on this site) has produced
well, both show jumpers and a dressage horse.
