The 13-year-old Selle Français stallion Pommeau de Heup (Helios de la Cour II - Jarnie du Heup x Thurin) will now compete under the Chinese flag in the company of Daniel Zhiwen-zao Chiu with the goal of participating in the 2016 World Cup final in Gothenburg. The Franco-Chinese rider has already qualified, but it remains to be seen whether he will compete with Pommeau. They will make their partnership debut this evening in a small class at Opglabeek (BEL). Bred by Hubert Groualle, Pommeau de Heup was spotted by Joris van Dijck during the qualifying events of the three-year-old French championship, which he subsequently won. His dam, Jarnie de Heup, is a full sister to Hugo du Heup.
