Belgium Warmblood Stallion - Darco

 
   

 

 

Darco , a Belgium Warmblood ,was one of the most successful show jumping horses ever and was also one of the top breeding sires worldwide for jumping horses.

Darco's list of achievements as a jumping stallion is testimony to his dream-like career and that of his rider Ludo Philippaerts , who credits the stallion with getting him into the international show-jumping circuit:

As a sire, Darco, who was described by his rider as an extremely honest and intelligent horse was never not known to produce offspring that fell short of excellence and was always on top of the list for breeders from all over the world. Mares produced by him are highly coveted as brood mares and often sell for astronomical prices, while many of his male offspring have gone on to become highly successful themselves: Parco (by Darco x Attack Z) was 9th on the World Ranking List in 2001, while King Darco competed at the Atlanta Olympics with Philippaerts.

After his retirement from show jumping, Darco became one of the World's best breeding stallions for show jumpers and has remained so until his death in mid-June 2006.
