About - Liamant is a modern, blood-type stallion with everything a stallion needs for the sport. With quick reflexes and obvious athletic talent, Liamant was one of the highlights of the KWPN licensing in January 2019, and was third in the champions ring.
Sire - Diamant de Semilly topped the WBFSH Sire Rankings for the second time in 2016, having been inside the top ten since 2012. During his career, he was French national champion and WEG team gold medallist in 2002, and European team silver medallist in 2003. His offspring include Quickly Du Kreisker (FEI World Number One 2015), Don VHP Z (winner of the Rome GCT), Utamaro D’Ecaussines (member of British Nations Cup squad), Hello Guv'nor (winner Aachen 2016), grand prix winner Emerald, and Helidor Hybris, who jumped national grand prix as a 7-year-old. Diamant de Semilly is known for his outstanding power, suppleness and balance.
Damline - Liamant's dam Zarina III is a daughter of the prestatie KWPN mare Uarina, a Baloubet du Rouet daughter who under the sport name of Untouchable, jumped up to international 1.60m level under Leon Thijssen. Uarina is also the dam of the fantastic Explosion W, who is jumping international 1.60m classes with Ben Maher and is one of the most exciting jumping horses of his generation.
The damsire Heartbreaker needs no introduction, having produced an incredible dynasty of jumping horses throughout his long and successful career. Heartbreaker was declared ‘Preferent’ in 2009 in recognition of his hugely successful offspring in the international scene. Heartbreaker himself was successful at grand prix level with Peter Geerink, and appeared on the WBFSH Sire Rankings for seven consecutive seasons (2009 - 2015). His influence in worldwide breeding is enormous. In the KWPN-studbook he has 10 approved sons and 14 approved grandsons. On the international scene, many of his offspring are competing at the highest level, including Bertram Allen’s Romanov II, who won four grands prix (Bordeaux, Dortmund, La Baule and Paris) in 2016. Also among his offspring are Zidane, ridden by Leopold van Asten, the approved stallions Cidane, Toulon, Zambesi and Actionbreaker, and Halifax van het Kluizebos, who has exploded onto the international scene in recent seasons and led the world rankings for several months. Heartbreaker is also the grandfather of World Young Horse Champion Earley, but by far his best-known grandson is undoubtedly the prolific winner Hello Sanctos, by Quasimodo van de Molendreef. Team gold medallist (and individual fifth) at London 2012, Sanctos and Scott Brash made history in 2015 as the first (and only) winner of the Rolex Grand Slam of Showjumping; consecutive victories in the world's three most prestigious grands prix of Aachen, Geneva and Spruce Meadows, for a bonus of €1,000,000. Sanctos has also won six GCT Grands Prix, and Scott was twice winner of the GCT Global Champions Tour, largely thanks to the phenomenal success of this top horse. The pair have also won World Cup qualifiers in Wellington and Oslo, the Rolex IRJC Top Ten Final, and an individual bronze medal at the 2013 Europeans.
The wider damline has produced several good jumping horses including Al Capone (by Oklund, jumping 1.50m), the 1.55m jumper Evenzo (by Diarado), and the licensed stallion Landeur (by Grandeur). Several successful dressage horses also descend from this damline, including grand prix Jazz daughters Erina and Tarina, and the very popular young dressage stallion Imposantos.
