Tulara Balinda

Black Warmblood mare

Born 2008..

Born to jump this lady with a pedigree that oozes quality

Gem has the ultimate jumping pedigree

Her sire is none other than the penultimate jumping machine in Balou Du Rouet.

For the fifth time in a row, Balou du Rouet is amongst the world’s best show jumping and eventing sires, ranking fifteenth and eighth respectively (according to the WBFSH ranking) – perfectly evidenced by the team silver medallist at the Olympic show jumping competition in Tokyo/JPN, Baloutinue/Laura Kraut/USA, the individual bronze medallist at the European Eventing Championships in Avenches/SUI, Corouet/Sarah Bullimore/GBR, and the team gold and individual bronze medallist at the European Young Riders Eventing Championships in Vilamoura/POR, Balento C. S./Emilie Conter/BEL.

Over 70 of his offspring are successful in 1.60m show jumping competitions. This means that Balou du Rouet has long been heir to the throne of his famous father, the Olympic and three-time World Cup winner Baloubet du Rouet.

Balou du Rouet started his own career with the final score of 9.2 at the 30-day test in Vechta. After serial victories in young horse classes, he won the qualification round at the German Championships with a score of 9.2, came eighth in the final of the six-year-olds and won show jumping competitions up to 1.50m.

His dam Georgia also produced the three licensed stallions Balissimo (by Baloubet du Rouet), the German Champion Cornet’s Balou (by Cornet Obolensky), who, under his sport name Balou du Reventon/Brian Moggre/USA, was part of the winning Nations Cup team in Aachen in 2021, and took second place in the Grand Prix, and won the Grand Prix in Sopot/POL and Wellington/USA, and Chatinue (by Chacco-Blue)/Darragh Kenny/IRL. Georgia’s daughter and granddaughters produced numerous international show jumping horses and the licensed stallions Chageorge (by Chacco-Blue) and Vivagran (by Vivant).

The Oldenburg dam’s sire Continue is also the dam’s sire of Antello Z/Cameron Hanley/IRL, who took part in the World Championships and European Championships, Baloufina/Cian O’Connor/IRL and Camilla/Denis Lynch/IRL.

His grand-dam Georgette II also produced Sandrissimo (by Sandro), licensed stallion and successful in 1.40m show jumping competitions.

The sires Domino, Gepard and Granit, who appear in the earlier generations of Balou du Rouet’s pedigree, have had a lasting influence on the mare base of Paul Schockemöhle’s stud.

On her dam side she is by the popular Camelot Ego Z

Camelot was a sire. And what a sire he became. Covering very few mares in his life, he managed to produce youngsters that have and continue to win against imported and professionals horses, with amateurs on board. They continually carry junior riders to squad positions against professionally trained juniors on expensive imported trained stock. They are on the EA talent squads and they are performing overseas at the highest level and his mares are sought after breeders. He has also produced breeding colts that have, in turn, produced more young horse class winners. Per brood mare, one would be hard placed to find a stallion in Australia that has produced so many correct, sound, functional, user friendly horses that seem to effortlessly hold their own (and win against) professionally trained imports.

Camelot has also had a quiet success producing a few eventers and dressage horses due to the well known Carthago Z movement. Camelot produced movement and instinctive flying changes. He has had regional highest point scoring dressage youngsters , successful eventers and also dressage champions.

As a sire, Camelot stamped his progeny irrespective of the mare. Out of a 14.2hh Connemara mare came the same super long legged, narrow, light bodied 16.3hh jumper almost exactly as out of the tall Clydesdale cross. This made Camelot an invaluable improver.

We have been very fortunate to have this lovely mare in our broodmare herd and we are now looking for a new home for her as we downsize our stud.


2023 Gem had a very loud bay silver colt to  lovely silver jumping stallion Oldlands Vivaldi IV
