SIRE: COMME IL FAUT

Of the seven stallions in the first three generations of Comme Il Faut’s pedigree, six of them competed at grand prix themselves.
Comme Il Faut was second in the World Championship for five-year-olds at Lanaken in 2010. From the beginning, he stallion demonstrated his outstanding qualities on the international stage. At the start of his career he jumped in young horse classes, but after only one season he was jumping at grand prix. In 2013 and 2014, he achieved good results in 7 & 8-year-old classes, then two seconds in 2014 at Paderborn CSI3*, and in the grand prix at Dortmund CSI3*.
