Diamant de Semilly

Bred for performance, one the most sought-after sires in France
Bred for performance and ranked “Elite” by the Selle Francais Studbook, Diamant de Semilly is one the most sought after sires in France and internationally. He is without a doubt one of the best French stallions.

Diamant de Semilly is ranked:
- #1 WBFSH Show Jumping Sire (2015)
- #3 WBFSH Show Jumping Sire (2014)
- Best Sire of jumping winners (France)
- Best Sire of mares (France)
- Top 1% of the jumper sires in Germany

His Sire Le Tot de Semilly was also internationally successful and is considered to be one of the best show jumping producers in France. He began his breeding career in 1985 and has produced more than 1000 jumping winners and 65 stallions.
His dam, Venise des Cresles only had one foal, Diamant.

Diamant de Semilly qualified at 4, 5 and 6 years old for the French National Young Horse Championship in Fontainebleau and went on to compete at the highest level in show jumping.
It would be too long to list all his achievements but the most memorable ones are as follow: 2002 Team World Champion title at the world championship in Jerez (Spain). He finished 9th in the individual ranking. He also won the team silver at the European championship in 2003.

Being an exceptional showjumper, he is nevertheless an outstanding sire. He transmits to his offspring his wonderful canter, his balance, his strength, his great mind and an uncommon suppleness.
Diamant also brings to his progeny, his fabulous jumping technique, a strong back and lots of scope.
His offsprings are fast learners and very versatile. Their great mind makes them suitable to a vast array of riders (amateurs and professionals). Diamant progeny is very sought after.

Diamant frozen semen quality is fantastic with an exceptional fertility rate of 70%(France). He is easy to breed and fits a wide range of mares.
