Vigo d’Arsouilles

Following six years spent at the home of Belgian international showjumper, Philippe Lejeune – during which the pair won the 2010 individual world championship title in Lexington, Kentucky – Vigo d’Arsouilles has moved to new quarters at Elevage de Muze. According to Lejeune, “We always anticipated that Vigo would remain with me until the end of his days, but due to his success as a stallion, it has become difficult for us to manage with the new competition season about to begin. I have been looking for several months for someone to look after everything, but to my amazement could not find anyone. The best course was to simply return him to Joris de Brabander’s stable until the end of the summer. I am obviously very sad because he has been a major part of my life. His box was the first place I went when I woke up in the morning, and the last place I saw before I returned home every evening. He was ridden every day, but I rode him twice a week myself. Vigo is a horse that needs a lot of attention.

Lejeune concluded by saying, "Nonetheless, I don’t want his box to remain empty, so Filou de Muze has earned his place and will equally take Vigo’s place in sport. We will be making our season’s debut this weekend at Groeten, also with Cadeau de Muze and several new horses, such as Giogio de Muze – a son of Vigo (out of Valisca Major) and Twister Gesmeray (Quaprice Bos Margot) who, until now, have been trained by their owner.” - Stud for Life
