Bijou (Imp Hann)
Bijou competed up to the open classes under Mirja Horsthemke, before having to retire due to a ligament injury in her hoof, which was not repairable. This mare probably has one of the most amazing showjumping records because every class she ever entered, she placed. Starting at 70cm all the way up to the open classes, she never said no. Not an easy horse to ride at all, but all the scope, ability and technique in the world. Mirja did an exceptional job in producing a horse of this caliber with this mindset to the level she did.
Bijou has now retired back at stud as a broodmare and is watching her daughter Rivendell Blu from a distance.
Wangu competed successfully under Mirja Horsthemke up to the open classes in Johannesburg. He was always willing, honest and had tremendous scope. Unfortunately he did not enjoy the water jumps enough to allow him to realize his full potential as a showjumper in the highest classes. He retired from jumping and came home, where he was gelded and sold as a dressage schoolmaster to someone who will treasure and cherish him for the rest of his life.

Numerology was sold to Peter Morrisson as an eighteen month old colt. Being such a large horse, Peter took his time producing this gentle giant and gradually progressed up the grades and is now competing in the open classes in Johannesburg. This horse has the scope, ability and temperament to rival many international horses.
