Hardly ever in its history, the Holsteiner stallion licensing in Neumünster has seen an equally clearcut 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 the modern sport horse type to perfection. His magnifi cent type goes along with a good topline, a powerful back and four perfectly correct legs. His basic paces improved from a 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 control from the very first approach, and jumped with a flexible body, excellent leg technique and unbelievable scope, which earned him a 10.0.
He carries world champion blood on the top of his pedigree, with his sire, Diamant de Semilly a member of the gold winning French team under Eric Lavallois at the Jerez world championships in 2002. Diamant de Semilly boasts performance blood all over and is – just like his sire Le Tôt de Semilly, an own son of legendary Grand Veneur – one of the most successful French stallions.
Diarado’s dam is by Holsteiner jump horse sire Corrado I and a full sister to the licensed stallion Crawford. Through the famous stallions Lord and Ramiro, the dam line goes back to the highly successful line 318D2 bred by the Bernhard family. This mare family has produced the breeding stallions Corofino I + II, Coriano, Chello I + II as well as the champion stallion Camiros.
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. In order to qualify for Holsteiner foal registration papers and Holsteiner thigh branding, the use of Diarado is restricted to the Holsteiner breeding programme where he is exclusively available through the Holsteiner Verband station Groß Buchwald in 2014.
In 2009, Diarado was already shown in competition and won a young jumper class at A level under Bastian Freese scoring 9.0. In 2010, Diarado attracted attention with top scores in young jumper classes. At the Bundeschampionat he won the fi rst two qualifi ers, scoring 9.0 and 9.3, respectively, and placed 3rd in the final scoring 9.0. In 2011, he won young jumper classes at M* level in Vechta and in Cloppenburg and qualified for the Bundeschampionat. In 2013, he achieved several high placings in jumper classes at S level.
Diarado’s foals realize top prices, the top-selling lots of the Elmhorn foal auctions in 2011 and 2013 were Diarado offspring. As yet, 20 of his sons have been licensed in Germany, among them premium stallion Dinken, licensed for Holsteiner breeding at Neumünster in 2012, and De Quidam, champion stallion of the Vechta OS stallion grading in 2013.
