Béligneux Le Haras announces that the breeding stallion Tinka's Boy has passed away. The South Pole x Zeus son lived to be no less than 33 years old.
Tinka's Boy is one of the best (Swiss) show jumpers ever. He won, in chronological order, individual and team silver at the EC in Hickstead (1999), bronze with the team at the EC in Donaueschingen (2003), silver with the team at the Olympics in Sydney (2000) and gold in the World Cup finals of Gothenburg (2001)!
In 2006, Tinka's Boy was put into sports retirement. He was used in breeding from then on, resulting in a large number of successful offspring.
