Argentinus

VIDEO

Argentinus--a living legend! It has been over a quarter of a century since Argentinus took up residence in Klein Roscharden as a sire. And today, this trademark stallion still bursting with energy. His son, Arko ESI, brought 130,000 Euro, making him the most expensive warmblood foal ever sold at an auction in Germany. A full brother of this price record breaker, Arko III, was the most successful show jumper in the world twice under Nick Skelton. But Argentinus' many other internationally successful off-spring document why he remains such a popular sire: Anka, under Marcus Ehning, won the competition in Spangenberg and took home a ribbon from Geneva the end of this year. Nations Cup winner Asti Spumanti under Thomal Mühlbauer had another great season. As the sire, so the off-spring: honest, willing to perform and born with a genius talent for jumping. The list of Argentinus' achievements during the course of his long career is long – Champion Stallion in Oldenburg, Stallion of the Year in Hanover – but the statistics on his internationally successful off-spring show the true dimensions of his greatness. Special Ed, for example, participated in the World Equestrian Games in Aachen under Jill Henslewood. In spite of their enormous talent for jumping, Argentinus' children are always good movers as well and thanks to their 1a characters, they are the perfect partners for all equestrian sports.
