WoSJ Exclusive; " Diarado is the perfect stallion " the quote reads as follows....

"How does the perfect show jumper look in your opinion?"

"It really doesn't matter how it looks if it jumps the way I want. It needs to have an excellent technique, be careful and quick. We prefer horses with long legs that have some blood in them. Diarado (Diamant de Semilly - Corrado) is a gorgeous horse, moves excellent, is rideable and jumps like a god. We want horses like him!"

Breeding has changed so much over the last few years, showjumping is so very different today with the fences becoming much more difficult and the courses far more technical!

You need a different horse today that is lighter and quicker than they used to be. It isn't enough that they can jump high, they also need to be very rideable.

Eros is the image of his father Diarado hopefully he will have some of his talent.
