Herve Godignon (FRA) riding Calypso d'Herbiers

It was with great sadness that Ann-Sophie Levallois announced the passing of Selle Français stallion Calypso d’Herbiers (Hurlevent - Niobe d’Orvault x Double Espoir) at Haras de Semilly at the age of 27. “He was a brilliant little horse who will remain always in our memories for his generosity, intelligence… he was an especially endearing stallion.” He had an especially successful international career, and died almost 13 years to the day after his great victory in the prestigious La Baule Derby. “He always gave the best of himself, and no other stallion has won as many medals.”
