I have not followed the jumping much for a while, changed to dressage, it's SUPPOSED to be safer! Is this COUPE DE COEUR the same horse that was a 4* eventer several years ago? Just curious, I saw him up close at Rolex in Ky in 05 with Leslie Law and he was beautiful.

No they are two different horses. Leslie Law's Coupe de Coeur was bay/brown, Ludger's is a grey.

I nearly swooned when this horse entered the arena. As if that weren't enough, my favorite rider is on him! :eek::eek::eek::D:D:D Most stunning horse I've seen in a long time, and definitely the superstar in looks. Marco Kutcher's horse runs a close second, but Coeur has my heart. :winkgrin:

i loved Coup! How graceful he and Ludger were! Those new German jackets go well with the dapple grey! :yes:

Yup. He's a horse and a half!

Maybe a horse and three quarters, even. :D God, what I wouldn't give to ride that!

Me too! Tell me that horse didn't have a career as a dressage horse before it was discovered that he loved to jump!

I'd give a lot for the elevation of those changes in a PSG horse, wouldn't you? :yes:

Loved Coupe de Coeur too! I have a few good action shots of him here:

Unfortunately my camera is not fast enough I guess because all my shots are a bit out of focus. I'm disappointed because for once I actually got decent action shots! So sorry in advance that they seem out of focus.

Also loved Ludo Philappaerts' Winningmood. Thought that was a gorgeous grey horse too. :cool:

I've been a fan of Ludo's since WC 2000. He rode Darco (the sire of Winningmood, BTW) in the 2007 WC and won the speed round. Hell of a horse, and it seems he's passing his talent on to his get. Too cool. :yes:

I hope that link works...check the photo of Couer...

ESG...totally agree. This time last week, we were leaving the thomas and Mack.

The wind really got my allergies riled up when we got home. How about you?

Actually, he did ride Darco earlier (from 1988-93), but in 2007 he rode Parco, another gorgeous (grey) son of Darco. At least Winningmood's name doesn't end with _arco to add to the confusion!!!

What does Coupe de Coure mean? Does anyone know? I love how that sounds when said out loud

I found this on the web.....

English Translation:

Loving something impulsively
To buy something just because you love it at first sight
To fall for somebody or something

Can anyone find links to pics or more information about Coup?
I was telling my trainer about him and wanted to send him some pics.
I did a google search and didn't find much, but I'm not the best internet detective.
I wonder if anyone is still reading this thread??
thanks!

it is spelled "coup de coeur" and having a "coup de coeur" for something means finding the said thing totally awesome. You can then say you had a "coup de coeur" for a puppy or an expensive bridle to justify an impulsive purchase.
French women often come home telling their husband "It's not my fault honey, I had a "coup de coeur" looking down at the super expensive new pair of shoes...:D
I don't think there is any equivalent in English to a "coup de coeur"... but I could be wrong.

Thanks for the addition to my vocabulary! I need this term 'cause it happens to me all the time.

I think it sort of translates to "Full of Heart". So, that would go along with what Amandine said, like someone could be "full of heart" about a puppy, and just have to have it.

Not 100% sure, though, but I do know some French!

Couldn't open the Facebook link, since I'm :eek::eek: not a member.

As for the allergies,..............I haven't stopped sneezing since I got home. Seriously bad allergy season down here. And now, after all the rain we had, we have lovely mold to add to the mix. Peachy. :dead:
