With all the auction action going on in Sweden there is a lot of breeders news today. There was some very good news for the Dutch VDL Stud. With a titel in their pockets for the ‘Stallion of the Year’ for the 25 year old Cardento (by Capitol x Lord), they also received several approvals for their stallions.
It’s Cardento’s sixth titel as Stallion of the Year. Back in his days he was competing succesful under Swedish rider Peter Eriksson. The combination jumped to a silver medal during the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, as well during de World Equestrian Games in 2002 in Jerez de la Frontera.
In stud he continues this succesful career, bringing forward several succesful offspring in the jumping competitions. Approved sons of the stallion that are in their prime today are Dakar VDL, Cyklon VDL and Carrera VDL (Photo).
