Sire: Eurocommerce Zürich (Berlin x Concorde) is approved in the KWPN, BWP, SI and Oldenburg studbooks. Zürich won the KWPN Stallion Show in 2007 and became the undisputed champion. Zürich qualified to the Dutch team in 2011 for the Lanaken FEI World Championship for Young Horses and later competed up to 1.40m level in the Netherlands with Wout-Jan van der Schans (video).
Guardian Blue’s mother is from Mr. Blue (Couperus x Oldenburg).
Mr. Blue was a very successful jumper with Bert Romp (video of them from 1997 in Aachen). His progenies are currently at the absolute top of jumping sport. Among others, direct Mr. Blue progenies are: BMC Van Grunsven Simon (winning in 2011 in Aachen with Jeroen Dubbeldam), Plot Blue (winning in 2013 in Aachen with Marcus Ehning), or Zirocco Blue (winning the Grand Prix of Copenhagen in 2013 with Jur Vrieling).
Interestingly, Eurocommerce Zürich comes from the same damline as Mr. Blue’s father Couperus, therefore Guardian Blue H7 is linebred to the NL mare family 95 / damline 47.
Guardian Blue’s maternal grandmother Shabanoe was competing internationally with Barat Tanguy. Shabanoe is from the great stallion Nabab de Réve (on the picture) which is also the father of Eurocommerce London (olympic silver medal in both individual and team show jumping at London), or the world champion of 2011, or Vigo d’Arsouilles (winner of the World Equestrian Games in 2010).
Guardian Blue H7 comes from theworld-famous Belgian “DE MUZE” damline. This mare family was established by the Belgian rider and veterinarian Joris de Brabander (who is also the breeder of Nabab de Réve, Eurocommerce London, Narcotique de Muze, Walnut de Muze – and plenty other top jumpers) in the 80-s, by starting to breed with his full arabian mare, Ifrane. Since then Ifrane, and her progenies, the de Muze mareline gave more than 20 jumpers competing internationally at 1.60 level, such as: Bamako de Muze, Ego van Orti (with Edwina Tops-Alexander at CSI5* Lyon 2012), Finbarr V (220cm puissance with Robert Whitaker), Lord if Chalusse (with Karina Rie Truelsen at the World Cup Lyon 2010), Mylord Carthago (with Penelope Leprevost winning the Nations Cup of Aachen in 2012) or Triomphe de Muze (approved for SF, NRPS, SBS, BWP). And I better don’t start to explain the heritage of the 23 approved stallions coming from Ifrane. The genealogic tree of her damline is at the bottom of this page.
And here you see the “de Muze” horses coming from Guardian Blue H7’s damline (bold letter means approved stallion, the numbers show the competition achievement and the placing of the horse in the WBFSH ranking list in the given year):
