Leprince des Bois a Selle Francais eventing stallion who really covers the ground. Proven performance underpinned with picture perfect conformation and breeding.
Leprince is a rare blood type, with an expressive head and elegant length of rein. By Yarlands Summersong (Fleetwater Opposition) out of Welton Gazelle, he has an event pedigree to shout about. On Leprince des Bois Dam’s’ side he has the elite be Bois line.
Outstanding in the Event Field, with Leprince regularly finishing first or second after the dressage at Burghley, Badminton and Pau, with Carl Hester stating that Leprince was “stunning” whilst in first place after the dressage at Badminton in 2013, high praise indeed. Leprince is built uphill, with a very active hind leg and strong quarters. He is an improver for any mare. His temperament is superb, and to prove this he took a sixteen year old girl to the German junior championships and won.
