Frou Frou D`anchin

Rivage Du Poncel x Grand Veneur

Frou Frou D`anchin is a selle francais stallion that proved himself as a showjumper, dressage horse and breeding stallion. When High Offley Stud imported this handsome French stallion into the UK we were bringing a talented performance horse with some of the finest selle francais breeding available.

Frou Frou D`anchin was sired by the Uriel stallion Rivage du Poncel who held the record for 29 consecutive clear rounds as a young horse, before embarking on an excellent international career, jumping at St Gall, Aachen, Madrid, Barcelona, Geneva, WCSI of Bercy and Cannes among many others. The mother line of Frou Frou D`anchin is Grand Veneur who is the foundation stallion at the head of a huge dynasty of French jumping horse, with progeny that includes the great Le Tot De Semilly who is a sire of many show jumping legends.

With a pedigree as steeped in French greats as Frou Frou D`anchin is was a sign that he would be a successful sport horse sire himself, as a young horse he toured Europe jumping in many major young horse classes and championships while progressing up to grand prix event. High Offley Stud purchased him in 2002 and after an exciting beginning he suffered an injury that put him on the side lines for over a year, on his recovery he came back jumping and winning but unfortunately suffered a recurrence of the injury, after another period of recovery we decided to stop his jumping career and instead started training him for Dressage which he was contently placed against horses with much more experience in the dressage arena. While juggling these to sport careers Frou Frou D`anchin was also a popular breeding stallion attracting many brood mares, the horses the Frou Frou has produced have proven themselves in the competition ring and true to type to the French selle francais breed. Unfortunately we lost Frou Frou Danchin in the summer of 2014 but we still have a strong influence of his bloodline both at High Offley Stud and the surrounding area.
