Hardly ever, the Holsteiner stallion licensing in Neumünster has seen an equally clear-cut and celebrated champion as in 2007.
Diarado’s description by breed director Dr.Nissen reads as follows: “The champion stallion oozes incredible charisma and epitomizes modern sport horse type. His magnificent type goes along with a good topline, a strong back and four perfectly correct legs. His basic paces improved from fairly good walk to good trot, crowned by a perfect canter. But his presentation reached fever pitch in the free jumping phase where he demonstrated perfect judgement from the very first approach, jumping with a flexible body, excellent leg technique and unbelievable scope, all of which earned him a 10.0.”
The stallion is owned by an international syndicate comprising the Paul Schockemöhle Pferdehaltung GmbH, the Dutch stallion keeper Joop van Uytert and the Holsteiner Verband.
On the strength of past experience, Diarado is likely to bring about most improvement when bred to tall, leggy mares with big movement.
