Description

Details

About - Diacontinus is a tall, powerful stallion with boundless scope and ability, who displays everything you would expect from his fantastic pedigree. His phenomenal talent is combined with an outstanding willingness to work, topped with excellent conformation.

Performance - Diacontinus achieved a top breeding value of 150 in jumping, and a dressage breeding value of 126, at his stallion performance test. With this incredible result, he was in the lead for the entire Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test. Diacontinus was the best stallion tested in Germany during 2013. He qualified for the Bundeschampionate two years in a row, and was a premium stallion at his licensing.

Sire - Diarado is one of the most popular stallions amongst both jumping and eventign breeders, famed for his outstanding conformation, temperament, and soundness.  Diarado has won several show-jumping classes; in 2010 he won the qualifier at the Bundeschampionship with a mark of 9.3, and in the final, he won the Bronze medal (with two marks of 9.0). To date, he has regularly been highly placed at advanced level, and came third in the CSI3* Grand Prix at Dobrock. He has been retired from sport for no other reason than to focus on his breeding career - he is sound and fit and still regularly appears at stallion shows. His 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), 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 - Diacontinus' dam line is well known for producing talented jumpers. Licensed stallions and successful sporthorses like the Celle stallion, Perpignon, stem from this line. Diacontinus' full sister, Diarada KJ, attracted attention early as a high priced auction foal, and as a four year old, she won the Herwart von der Decken show as the best jumper mare earning her States Premium title. Damsire Contendro is the current WBFSH sire rankings leader for Eventing, while third sire Argentinus is a fantastic showjumping sire who has produced more than 70 grand prix horses including Arko, Argento, and Adlantus AS. 

Progeny - From his first two foal crops, Diacontinus has six licensed sons, and the oldest are five-year-olds who are proving rideable, talented, and easy; they are already jumping successfully in young horses classes.
