Tyson boasts one of the best showjumping records of any stallion worldwide. A fantastic jumper, Tyson has always been a remarkable horse.  His success began at a young age with him winning the prestigious VION Cup competition in Holland as a six year old and again as a seven year old.  International stardom soon followed under his regular partner Leon Thijssen; together they met all expectations set out for them and achieved top results in Grand Prix and Nations Cup competitions.

Tyson is noted for his strong character, extremely athletic canter and his lightning-quick reflexes over jumps.  Tyson was a regular member of the Dutch A-team and was selected as the first reserve for the London Olympics.

Looking at his pedigree, it soon becomes apparent as to where Tyson’s outstanding qualities were inherited.

His sire is the world renowned Numero Uno – a top source of quality performance horses.  After a successful competition career with European Champion Marco Kutscher, Numero Uno rapidly became one of the world’s leading sires, having produced champions in ability tests, stallion approvals and International showjumping competitions right from his first crop.

Tyson’s damline is equally impressive; his dam Kicky Queen, an Elite Sport mare is sired by the legendary Voltaire. She is a sister to the international performers, Nirvana 1.60 Annet Willems (NED), This Lux 1.45 Victoria Tachet (FRA), Zandor 1.40 Ferry Wahyu (INA) and Calgary 1.40 Emiel Richter (NED)

Tyson’s grand-dam, First Lady, who is sired by Wisconsin (a son of the highly influential Nimmerdor) forms the base of this highly successful performance family.  In addition to her top performing offspring, her daughters further highlight the strength and depth in the family; Lady Queen is the dam of the KWPN approved stallion Tadmus who competed up to1.60 level with John Whitaker; Olympic Queen has produced the KWPN approved stallion Edinburgh who is competing at 1.40 level and Pearl Queen is the dam of Athane, a 1.40 competitor and the approved Wesfphailian stallion Thagoras.

And now, with his older children reaching 1.60mt level success and many special youngsters making their mark in Europe, we don’t have any doubt that Tyson is a top class reliable stallion.

His first foals in Ireland turned 4 in 2021, and the age classes were dominated by Tyson children in all the major classes, Dublin, Cavan, Barnadown and more.  We are excited for that lies ahead!

Hermes de Reve, a French Stallion by Quito de Baussy comes from a family full of 1.60 Showjumpers, including himself. 2008  proved to be an amazing year for Hermes – with numerous Grand Prix wins including Blessington, Balmoral and Omagh (the biggest ones Ireland), and also the coveted Irish National Championship title. With superb victories in both CSIO 5* Dublin and the Cavan Indoor Championships, he led his rider Clem McMahon to winning leading rider titles at both shows. Hermes De Reve comes from a strong jumping line on both sides. His Sire Quito De Baussy was World champion (both Team & Individual) and Olympic Champion with Eric Navet of France. His Sire Jalisco B still holds the record for having the most progeny jumping in the Olympic Games.

Hermes Dam, Dira Courcelle, was 5-Year-Old Champion in Belgium and 10th as a 6 Year Old in the World Breeding Championships in Zangerseide and winner of numerous international classes.
