Zip Phin/Balou Du Rouet/Baloubet Du Rouet
XOXO (Balou Phin) is an AES approved mare imported to the USA in 2013 to begin her career as a top A circuit hunter. She is an extremely versatile mare with beauty, scope, and technique. She proved herself a top jumper prospect by winning as a 4 yr old a national title in the UK for free jumping, yet also proved to have the jump and movement to earn many wins on the west coast in the Pre Green and high Pre-Green divisions. XOXO took time off of her career in 2015 to have a baby and will be bred for embryo transfer again in 2016 before going back to the competition ring to prepare for the First Year Greens and the Amateur Owner hunters. We also expect her to easily step into the derby ring which will enable her to show off her scope and athleticism.
