With 153 index points, Don Diamond counts among the Top One Percent of dressage stallions, which confirms his high ranking debut into the German breed value estimation last year.
The basis of this amazing result is his exceptional career as competition horse and sire. The stallion career of Don Diamond started with a bang. He became the celebrated Champion of the Southern German Stallion Days in January 2007.
Another highlight followed in November 2007: Don Diamond won his 30-day performance test in Neustadt/Dosse with sensational marks: overall score 8.92 / partial dressage score 9.36.
Don Diamond was the convincing Baden-Württemberg Champion in 2008 (9.63), Southern German Champion in 2008 and 2009 and – as another highlight – Vice Federal Champion in 2008. He competed one more time in the Final of the 2010 Federal Championships, and in 2011, at the age of seven, he won a qualifier for the Nuremberg Cup, finishing on an excellent 9th place in the Final.
But Don Diamond did not only shine as competition horse. He produced a number of extraordinary foal crops with many foals being honoured with the gold medal and many of them winning championships.
He presented winning mares, state premium mares, champion mares at mare performance tests, national and vice national champions and eight licensed sons from his first crop of foals on the ground.
Don Diamond descends from Grand Prix-stallion Diamond Hit who counts among the top-class stallions in Germany.
His dam carries best Holstein and Hanoverian bloodlines. Various successful advanced level dressage horses descend from the foundation stock of his granddam. With Ramino and Roman, two representatives of the important Ramzes AA-bloodline are represented further down in his pedigree.
Because of these extraordinary hereditary qualities, Don Diamond was nominated 2012 Southern German Master Stallion.
Approved for Hanover, Oldenburg, Westphalia, France, Italy and all Southern German breed societies.
