Obourg is a 1998 Elite BWP stallion who descends from one of the best French dam lines to date. As a young horse, Obourg was considered one of the BEST jumpers of the Belgian Young Horse circuit. After his importation to the United States, he continued a very successful career at the Grand Prix level with Olympian Lisa Jaquin.

Together, they would have several top placings in the Grand Prix divisions throughout North America. Most notably they placed 3rd in the $25,000 WEF Challenge Cup and 2nd at the Tournament of Champions in Canada in 2007. Throughout 2008-2010 Obourg and Lisa placed 8th in the $50,000 Beacon Hill Grand Prix, 3rd & 5th in two $25,000 Princeton Grand Prix's, 7th in the Traverse City $30,000 Grand Prix and 7th in the D-Braider $30,000 Grand Prix. During their partnership, Obourg and Lisa garnered countless top 10 placings in the 1.30m to Grand Prix divisions.

Obourg’s Sire Richebourg, is highly ranked in the Belgian index of show jumping sires, and is considered one of the best stallions of his time. Richebourg is half brother to Olympic Quintus who finished 10th in the 2008 Olympic Games. As a 4 & 5 year old, Richebourg was crowned the Belgian Champion, and incredibly went on to be crowned the 6 and 7 year old Champion in France. At the age of 8, Richebourg was once again crowned the Belgian Champion with rider Jean-Claude Van Geenberghe, and at age 9 the “Horse of the Year”. Richebourg is an astounding example of his superb pedigree and passes along his greatest assets to his son Obourg.

Richebourg's Dam, Opaline des Pains, is one of the best breeding mares in history who produced seven Olympic Champions! She produced approved stallions, Jus de Pomme, Richebourg, Shogun, Quintus and Tresor D’Opaline.

On the Dam side, Jusquiame du Champenotte's sire, Oberon Du Moulin, had career winnings of over $180,000 and was a finalist at the Fontainebleau 4,5 and 6 year old Championships. Throughout his career he placed in more than 20 National and International Grand Prix classes before he was retired to stud in 1996. Oberon Du Moulin has produced many top notch offspring who have competed Internationally throughout recent years.

Most recently, his daugher Espyrante was winner of the $82,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix with Japanese rider Aiken Sato at WEF 2013.

With such an incredible line up in his pedigree, there is no wonder why Obourg has been awarded the Elite status for BWP. He’s a superb sport horse as well as a fantastic progenitor. His offspring are successfully competing all over the world today and he is now available with Fresh semen in North America for the first time since he was imported to the USA. It is with great honor to announce his retirement from sport to enjoy his days as a breeding stallion.
