Royal Bravour

ROYAL BRAVOUR, the sire of Wang Chung m2s, is Ramiro's second best showjumping progeny after the great Olympic Gold Medalist Ratina Z. Under Peter Geerink, Royal Bravour won the World Cup qualifiers in Amsterdam and Oslo, the Mechelen Nations Cup, and the Aarhus Grand Prix. He placed 2nd in the Münster Grand Prix, 3rd in the Berlin Grand Prix and Oslo Grand Prix, 4th in the Amsterdam World Cup Qualifier, and 6th in the World Cup Final at Göteborg. In 1997 he won three Volvos and in 1998 he was ranked the 3rd best showjumper in the world. Royal Bravour was approved by the KWPN after being retired from competition. His eldest progeny have begun competing and much is expected of them. His first approved son is the NRPS-approved sire Royal Highness (dam-sire Lauriston).

RAMIRO, the sire of Royal Bravour, is one of the world's greatest sires of showjumpers. His most famous progeny besides Royal Bravour and Ratina Z include Royal Kaliber, winner of the Individual Silver and Team Gold medals at the 2005 Olympics.

URSULA, the dam of Royal Bravour, a Ster Preferent Prestatie mare, produced five international showjumpers: Royal Bravour, Damiro L, Elmiro, Olympic Bandit, and Ester V. She also produced the mare Jolly Lady, dam of the 3rd ring stallion Surprise.

ORTHOS, the sire of Ursula, sired the Nations Cup and international Grand Prix showjumpers Derrek, Arthus, Exito, Igor XVI, Manhattan, Orthos, Uptons Mill, and Sure Thing. Orthos is also the damsire of the important KWPN-approved sire Cavalier, who enjoyed a very successful career in international sport under Franke Sloothaak.

LADY WOOD, the dam of Ursula, was a Ster mare. Her progeny include the international Grand Prix winner and Nations Cup horse Inspiration.

COURVILLE xx, the sire of Lady Wood, is also the sire of the international showjumping stallion Jasper (aka The Little One), winner of the Paris Grand Prix and the Hamburg Derby. Courville xx also sired the KWPN-approved stallion Notaris and the international Grand Prix showjumper and KWPN-approved sire Renville.
