Chestnut Sabino Dutch Warmblood (KWPN)

STER PROK SPORT (Keur/Elite eligible)

Baloubet du Rouet x Nimmerdor x Le Mexico

16.2hh (167cm), Born April 21, 2000, Imported

    

Travola is a gorgeous sabino Dutch Warmblood mare with an outstanding pedigree and an impressive competition record.  She is very sensitive and enthusiastic, and is such a motivated jumper that she will go out of her way to jump anything.  She has a wonderful disposition and adores having her handlers and even children dote on her. She is an extremely careful jumper. 

       

Travola was imported as a yearling and competed extensively as a 6-year old at 1.20m in the United States (2006).  Travola had several wins and placed 13 times in the top ten, and was double clear in 9 out of 11 of her classes.  In 2007, Travola began competing at 1.30m but sustained a career-ending injury early in the show season and the decision was made to retire her as a broodmare.  

    

Travola proved to be a difficult broodmare and only had a single foal. After several radiographs and veterinarian consultations, her amateur rider and owner, Christina Woodley, discovered that Travola was likely riding sound. Over the next 5 years, Christina slowly and carefully reconditioned Travola focusing on dressage, collection, and progressive jumping. In 2014, professional rider Michelle Vandal observed Christina jumping with Travola and approached Christina to discuss a competition plan for Travola.  Michelle and Travola quickly delivered unbelievable results!  Travola began her 2014 season competing regularly at 1.35m with Michelle, and they quickly moved up to 1.40m and 1.45m.  Travola won seven Stakes and Modified Grand Prix classes as well as two 1.45m Jump Canada Talent Squad class. She was the Circuit Champion of 1.35m, and Champion of the Eastern Division Talent Squad at 1.45m with 35 points in total (second place was 29 points). Travola rarely had any rails down and was almost always untouchable with her time. 

   

In 2015, Travola again started a bit later in the season but quickly resumed her outstanding jumping record with both Champion and Reserve Champion designations in her 1.35m "warm up" classes.  She won the The Headwaters Cup CSI** Modified Grand Prix, placed 2nd in her first FEI Grand Prix with a double clear round (she came second only to Samuel Parot's mount, Atlantis, who had just finished competing at the PanAm games for Chile at 1.60m), and then claimed another 2nd place victory in the PDI Sunday Classic FEI Grand Prix at Angelstone The National CSI*** (again, placing second only to another visiting PanAm horse). She also pinned in two other FEI classes that were as high at 1.50m with spreads up to 1.60m, and placed 9th and 11th in each. Travola displayed great versatility and continued jumping enthusiasm by taking her amateur rider, Christina, to a clear round in both the 1.20m and 1.30m jumpers as well.

        

Travola's sire, Baloubet du Rouet, was declared the 2004 Best Horse in the World and with his rider Rodrigo Pessoa, won the Individual Gold Medal in show jumping at the 2004 Olympic games in Athens and were recipients of the Team Bronze Medal at the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney.  Baloubet's sire, Galoubet A, ranked third on the WBFSH standings for 2000/2001 and was a successful international show jumper himself.  Great grandsire Almé also competed internationally in jumping and is the dually recognized "Father of World Breeding" and the Selle Français "Stallion of the Century".  

        

Maternal grandsire Nimmerdor was declared the Dutch Preferent Sire of the Century and competed in numerous World Cups and International competitions and was also selected for the Los Angeles Olympics.  Le Mexico was also a well-known jumper producer and obtained a high jumping breeding value of 146 and reliability of 96% due to the success of his progeny.  

   

Travola's dam, Maravola, was awarded the Keur Preferent predicate that is indicative of her high quality progeny as well as her conformation, movement and performance capabilities. At the National Foal Auction Prinsjesdag in September 2005, Maravola's colt, Ap-Art by Quidam de Revel, sold for an astounding €49,000! Maravola is a full sister of Garavola, an international Grand Prix show jumper, and with rider Leon Thijssen were recipients of the Aga Khan Trophy of the Nations Cup at the Kerrygold Horse Show in Dublin in 1999.
     

Several of Travola's grand dams have been awarded the Preferent and/or Prestatie predicates indicating that they have produced at least 3 offspring that have achieved at least M2 (4' jumping or Third Level dressage).  Shantah produced two national show jumpers and she herself is a full sister to the international show jumper Suleiman.

     

We are extremely fortunate to have such a stunning, well breed mare with proven jumping talent in our breeding program.
