Comments on pedigree:
Diamant carries much of the most important jumping blood in French breeding. His father Le Tot, has been a legend in France, consistently in the top ten sires in all age classes at Fontainbleau. Via Elf III, we find the blood of Ibrahim, who has a hand in the genetics of nearly all the great French sires.
Suitable for: Jumping, eventing
A tall rangey stallion, Diamant exhibits great strength and scope. His photos show what a powerful horse he is, and videos give testament to his stunning jumping ability.
Performances and Results:
2002 Team World Champion and 9th in individual, Champion of France 2002, team silver medal at the 2003 European Championships.
His great potential was revealed in 1999 when he was France's 1st Category Champion at the jumping criterium. Regularly ranked in international classes since (1st 1999 Saint-Lô CSIB, winner of the Stallion World Championship in 1999 Caen CSIA, preselected for the Sydney Olympic Games 2000, 4th in Lummen and Modena Nations Cups 2001, 8th Munchen and Saint-Lô CSIA, etc.), he arrived at the top level in 2002 : World Champion with the French team (9th in the individual ranking) and France Champion after a great showjumping season (11 clear rounds over 12 in Nations Cups within Rome, Aachen, Donaueschingen). He confirmed his abilities in 2003 by winning team silver medal at the European Championships in Donaueschigen.
In 2004, after a good start (winner of Auvers GP CSI), he had been short listed for Athens Olympic Games, but because of a tendonitis he had to stop competing for a while. He ended successfully the 2005 showjumpig season winning the two GP CSI*** of Saint-Lô de Caen.
In 2006 he won the Belgian Grand Prix in Liège.
Scope, balance, intelligence.
Diamant de Semilly has covered 1413 mares over 10 years.
Comment on offspring:
Despite young offspring, Diamant de Semilly is already recognized to be the BEST SELLE FRANCAIS STALION, ranked Elite. His offspring tend to be good looking, with powerful movement and clearly jump.
He began breeding in 1996. His outstanding offspring includes :

Make no mistake, the next four years will see Diamant rise to the very top of the world rankings. So many of his young stock are performing at the top of their age classes, that we're only a short time away from seeing one of his kids really hitting the headlines.
Mares to use with this stallion:
Diamant de Semilly is easy to breed. He brings lots of quality over fences, a strong back, a great balance, a lot of scope, a wonderful mind, and more "fire" than his sire. You cannot go wrong with Diamant ! Mares close to blood do well, but his offspring show that he suits most types of mare.
