Rapide is a daughter of two horses that have performed at the highest level : For Pleasure and Miss d'Helby. She has distinguished herself in competition, being very regular in 145cm-150cm classes.
Her breeding career has been equally successful. Her first offspring are already making a name for themselves !
Miss d'Helby, an illustrious progenitor
A daughter of Papillon Rouge, Miss d'Helby has enjoyed a rich sporting career. Competitive, energetic and remarkably intelligent at the helm, she won the bronze medal at the 2009 French Pro Élite Championship with Guillaume Batillat.
Miss d'Helby has also proved to be an excellent mother :
• 12/17 offspring are indexed.
• 7 have evolved on the international circuit.
• 2 160cm horses, 2 155cm horses, 1 150cm horse and 2 140cm horses.
Miss d'Helby passes on her competitive qualities. Her offspring are marked by Papillon Rouge, with character. They are strong-willed, determined horses with a natural aptitude for jumping.
Rapide d'Helby, a rare pearl
Rapide, too, is an energetic mare with great ability. A very gifted jumper, she showed great respect for the bar. Her career was rich in national and international rankings.
Rapide is now devoted to breeding. Her first son, Cycnos d'Helby (ISO 145), has already made a name for himself in 150cm classes with Mathieu Billot.
She has everything it takes to be an exceptional broodmare.
