"C. Quito has a very generous and intelligent character. He is the most correct and light horse I have ever ridden while maintaining a relaxed and tremendously athletic jumping style. His manner and attitude in the ring never change."

Without a doubt Parco has left a permanent mark both in sport and breeding producing amateur and professional jumpers. They have excellent temperament, composure and scope.
His sire Darco is an ambassador for the BWP studbook and has been #1 WBFSH showjumping sire worldwide for several years. Darco produced among his best McLean Wards, Saphire, 2004 & 2008 Olympic Team Gold Medal winner.
As a sire, Darco, was described by his rider, Ludo Philippaerts, as an extremely honest and intelligent horse who was never known to produce offspring that fell short of his excellence. “I will never forget the fine intelligence he so often proved in the showjumping arena, where he always showed lots of power and stamina coming from his high-bred ancestors. I think Darco is one of the best stallions in the world. If you look at what his offspring are doing, he is very special – a top jumper and a top breeder. He is a really careful horse himself, and his progeny are very honest horses, with a very good character and mentality.”
