Ballan Soso is a magnificent stallion who was born in 2004. He stands 17hh and possesses an extremely original pedigree for a coloured horse. His sire, Baloubet Junior Z, who competes at the highest level internationally (in CSIO ridden by Christine McCrea of the USA) has passed on to him the blood of two of the most important jumping stallions - Baloubet du Rouet and Darco. And from his maternal line has come the necessary injection of Thoroughbred blood (which many horses lack) since his mother (TB) is the daughter of the Thoroughbred Boden's Ride.

His papers, very new in the world of coloured horses, would give you the chance to breed a foal of outstanding quality. The AES, who approved the stallion in 2010, were very happy with this really novel pedigree.

Ballan Soso is a superb horse, possessed of a faultless technique, great respect and resources as well as being exceptionally gentle. He has an adorable character and is also both easy to handle and very intelligent. As his owners say, "a real eyecatcher" - a horse one cannot help but notice.

Ballan is in the process of becoming an international competition horse in Eventing. He has been competing since 2011 with the rider Sarah Van Hasselt, a member of the Belgian team. In less than two years she has taken him to this level in an extremely rapid rise. As good in the jumping section as in the dressage or the cross country, he is proving himself to be at the same high level as the other horses in the team.

He has already competed successfully at International level at :

CCI* RAVENNA ITALY

CCI* RENSWOUDE NETHERLANDS

CIC* MAARSBERGEN NETHERLANDS

CIC* ARVILLE BELGIUM

CIC* CASTENRAY NETHERLANDS

CIC* HELVOIRT NETHERLANDS

He is now ready at the age of nine, to compete in CCI and is without doubt destined to go far.

If you are looking for a coloured stallion who is different from the others, they here is one. The Elevage Morinda is proud to be able to exclusively present this exceptional horse in France.

All his foals are beautiful, intelligent and of high quality. Ballan Soso, available fresh only, has a semen of excellent quality. All the mares he covered in his first two seasons (2011 and 2012) were in found to be in foal.
