Babette [ photo gallery ]


Babette was our first foal by the world class show jumper Coconut Grove xx - and we liked her so much, we had a second one in 2008. Babette is a very friendly, yet energetic horse and strikes everybody with her powerful hind end movement. She clearly has the engine at the right spot. To us, she carries the perfect blend of jumper blood in her pedigree and we are looking forward to starting her under saddle in 2009.
