Dakar is a well-developed grey stallion with a large and powerful canter that contributes to his notable scope. As a 3-year old, Dakar passed his performance test beautifully. He received an 8.5 for his great scope and an 8 for self-carriage, canter, ride ability, attitude and potential as jumping horse.

As a 5-yr old stallion, he jumped clear in Enschede, Roosendaal, Zuidbroek and in the final round at ’s Hertogenbosch. As a 6-yr old he was third at the stallion competition in Zuidbroek, he jumped clear in Roosendaal and won the final and the competition in Den Bosch. He seems to have all the qualities for the higher and more complex courses. He shows a lot of scope, is fast, and has a great technique.

At CSI Roosendaal Dakar made his international debut, where he jumped consistently clear rounds and was second in the final of the Youngster Tour. At CSI Asten and CSI De Wolden he jumped clear rounds and finished ninth in the finale of CSI De Wolden.

His sire, Cardento, jumped at the highest level and won Silver at the European Championship, the World Championship and at the Olympics in 2004. The legendary Grand sire Nimmerdor was honored as "Stallion of the Century". Continuing in his mare-line we come to the Grand Prix jumping stallion Silbersee, sire of Spender S and Calypso II, sire of the world renowned Contender.

In Dakar's dam line we see a lot of quality. The dam, Nisolde 'keur', was the 3-year old Champion of the Central Keuring of Groningen. She is also dam of the approved stallion Boss (Champion of the KWPN stallion inspections), Sunsolde (international jumper and Swedish Junior Champion) and Anisolde (Reserve Champion of the 5-year old jumping horses and jumped at 1.40m). The Grand dam Isolde (also Champion of the CK Groningen) was designated "Keur, Preferent and Prestatie" with the international offspring: Magnum, Candide and Alfalfa.

Dakar's first offspring appear to be modern, long-legged and long-lined horses with a ground covering and engaged canter. They jump with scope, good technique and have the right mentality. Expected breeding value: 156.

Dakar: Continuing Cardentos success.
