Words by Evi Verstrepen
Nijem Ibn Eternity (Eternity Ibn Navaronné-D x Narvana) was bred in Belgium by M Smits.
Nijem was known for his outstanding movement and in 2004, he won the Triple Crown title as a colt with Johanna Ullström. Soon after, he was sold to Al Khalediah Stud in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a stallion, Nijem became gold champion several times in the Middle East and Europe, with Philippe Hosay at the end of the lead.
|Nijem and Evi|
Nijem spent most of his life with Philippe on his farm in Belgium, where I know he had a very respectful life. He has offspring in both showing and performance on an international level, which underlines how correct and versatile he was. Nijem himself was also a very nice riding horse, and I enjoyed many days hacking out with him.
|Nijem Ibn Eternity (Eternity Ibn Navarrone-D x Naravna)|
Nijem retired at an early age, and when he was 14 year, he moved to me, as his new owner, to enjoy his last years in a field. I loved him unconditionally and he was the horse of my dreams, a dream that came true. He sadly passed away at the age of 16. It was a heart-breaking decision, but he deserved a peaceful and painless end to his life.
Rest in peace, Nijemn. You will always be with me.
