The 12 year old Selle Français gelding by Watch Me Hoy x Don Pierre, owned by the Écurie du Herrin, with an impressive track record at the 5* level with Aldrick Cheronnet and consistently placing in Grand Prix classes this summer with Marie Demonte, was sold through Paillot Equestrian.
Tanael des Bonnes had recently crossed the Atlantic Ocean to relocate to Paillot Equestrian’s farm in Wellington Florida; he will now be seen under the saddle of American Grand Prix rider Brianne Goutal.
Known as a very generous Grand Prix horse, Tanael is also extremely competitive and consistent . His performances to date include placings in the following 5* International Grand Prix classes: Bordeaux, Valencia, La Coruña, Royan, Oliva, Cannes, St Galles, Helsinki, Lyon as well as wins in La Baule and Gothenburg. More recently, Tanael was 3rd in the 160 Grand Prix of St. Tropez.
“As Tanael has always been a very special horse to me, I am very happy to see him going to a great horsewoman and rider like Brianne” mentions Guy Belooussoff, owner of the Écurie du Herrin.
The Écurie du Herrin has decided to develop their presence in America as indicated by successful results in the past weeks in Wellington, including wins for Stella Levista And Zip under the saddle of Marie Demonte. “The sale of Tanael is a great showcase of the quality of horses we want to offer to our client” informs Valentine Belooussoff, daughter of Guy Belooussoff and manager of the Écurie du Herrin.
“The partnership between Paillot Equestrian and the Écurie du Herrin has been very successful; we have sold their top three 160 GP horses: Uris de la Roque (now under the saddle of Mario Deslauriers), Calou (visible with Swiss rising star Alexandra Amar) and now Tanael des Bonnes” adds Nicolas Paillot.
Those three competitive Grand Prix horses add to the list of other champions such as USA Normande, Valou du Lys, Very Good de la Bonne, Eilan del Maset , Uderzo de Rance, etc. confirming the leadership of Paillot Equestrian in selling top sport horses in the US.
