Just as haute couture fashion is concerned with the cream of the crop, so is this horse named Jean Couture of exceptional class. This very modern five-year-old stallion stands out with his excellent carriage, light-footed canter and fantastic way of jumping. With a 9 for jumping and a 9 for rideability, he won a contest in the Stal Hendrix competition in which he showed unprecedented talent time and again. Jean Couture comes from a strong dam-line, which features a succession of top sires. His dam Douglas is a half-sister to the KWPN champion stallion In Between (s.Toulon), who was approved by the Zangersheide studbook; and Jean Couture’s granddam Zuduela is a half-sister to the international 1.45m show jumper Fancy (s.Vigaro), ridden by Weronika Wilska. This family has produced numerous international sporthorses, including Viceroy (s.Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve), Non Stop R (s.Lux) and Dimodo (s.Quasimodo Z).
