Ramiro B’s pedigree is a cocktail of some of the best jumping lines including Belgium Warmblood and Holstein.
Born in Belgium and produced in Ireland, with consistency in technique, genuine rideability and scope, he successfully competed internationally with Irish show jumper Edward Doyle.
Important career results include; Indoor Champs Spring 1998 4 yr old finals – 1st, R.D.S. Dublin 4 yr old Championships Summer 1998 – 1st, Cavan 5 yr old class 1999 – 1st, Cavan 6 & 7 yr olds class 2001 – 1st, North Wexford Grand Prix 2002 – 1st, Dun Laoghaire Horse Show Grand Prix 2002 – 2nd place, Kerrygold Dublin Horse Show Grade A – 2nd, Blessington Show 2003 1.50m – 3rd. Top international placings include Longs de Saunier, France 2002 – 4th and Italian Grand Prix Pontedere 2002 – 1st.
With a wealth of horses competing at 3* and 4* level, Ramiro B is undoubtedly a proven sire of top level event horses. In the final 2015 rankings Ramiro B moved to 2nd in the WBFSH Event Sire World Rankings, based on the number of points his progeny have accumulated in international competition and he is in 4th place for the 2017 season.
To name but a few, Ballynoe Castle RM (3rd in the 4* at Kentucky in 2014), Cooley Masterclass (winner of the CICO*** at Ballindenisk in 2014), Westwinds Hercules (Winner of the CIC2* at Mallow in 2014), Tommy Be Good and Noble Bestman are all super examples of successful event horses by Ramiro B.
In 2014, Oliver Townend enjoyed the talents of his Ramiro B sired rides, Cooley SRS – won the CIC2*at Floors Castle, LCC Cooley – won the Intermediate at Aston le Walls, BGS Captain Morgan – won the Novice at Belton – and as above he won the CICO3* with Cooley Masterclass at Ballindenisk.
In 2018 Cooley Master Class won the Land Rover Kentucky Horse Trials on his CCI**** debut, finishing on his dressage score of 28.7 and Cooley SRS finished 2nd at the Mitsubishi Badminton Horse Trials on his CCI**** debut, jumping double clear to finish on a score of 33.1.
Ramiro B is the sire of some very talented show jumpers, who have had success up to Nations Cup level. Most recently Ramiro Cruise has been shining and now under Edwina Tops Alexander, the consistently impressive grey gelding will be seen on the Global Champions Tour.
In The 2014 Go for Gold sale a 3 year old Ramiro B gelding made €53500. In 2015, the best priced 3 year old event horse was a Ramiro B son too making €42000.
Ramiro B’s progeny have consistently topped the sales results throughout Ireland.
