Mr. Blue in tragic accident

The 18-year old KWPN breeding stallion Mr. Blue (Couperus x Acarla) passed away on Tuesday, 11th July, while trying to jump his paddock.

Everyone who came into contact with this stallion loved him for his gentleness, power and easy nature. His lost show occurred in spring this year, during the Stallion Show of the well known Dutch breeder Nihjoff, where he was ridden by the eleven year old Audrey Paris.

After a bout of happiness Mr. Blue attempted to jump the paddock at Fabrice Paris's stables. He landed on his shoulder and head, and suffered a severe cerebral haemorrhage.

The stallion competed in top show jumping events until the age of 15 and claimed many international victories under the saddle of four different riders: Bert Romp, Elise Haas, Katie and Henry Prudent.
