Dutch show jumping rider, Harrie Smolders has welcomed a new talent in his stables. In the future Smolders will be competing with the 10-year-old Herald van ‘t Ruytershof (by Lord Z).
Herald was bought by Morocco’s Youssef Salmeron at the age of 2 years old. Salmeron produced the horse up to an international 1.55m level. The pair won the Morocco championships for 4 year old horses and more recently placed second in the CSI3* Grand Prix of Massongy.
The BWP-bred Herald is a son of Constant Van Paesschen’s former 1.60m horse, Diamanthina van ‘t Ruytershof (by Diamant de Semilly). Herald was bred by Bert den Branden from Belgium.
