Orlando is a stallion with a lot of scope and superior technique along with a gentle temperament. He is horse for all riders. These traits are passed along to his offspring who have proven themselves as successful sport horses throughout the world.
Orlando is a top choice stallion for breeders in North America and he is producing first-rate, competitive offspring such as Lauren Hough's mare, Ohlala. Many of his progeny have won foal championships and have brought record auction prices. In sport, Orlando had great success with riders Dirk Demeerman and Darrah Kerrins which began when he was a young horse competing. His accomplishments include; becoming 2002 six year old Belgian Champion, second in the seven/eight year olds in Aachen, winner of the 2004 CSIO4* 1.50m in Lummen along with many more wins and top five results throughout his career.
Orlando's Sire, Heartbreaker, is a stunning stallion who has produced many offspring jumping at the upper levels of the show jumping sport, as well as, several approved sons including the 2006 Belgian Stallion Selection Champion Dulf Van Den Bisschop. Heartbreaker is still predominant in today's breeding and is one of the leading stallions for Dutch and Belgian jumpers.
Orlando's damsire, Darco, was voted best sire in the world in 2010 for the fourth year in a row, and he has produced over 3000 foals in his breeding career. Darco's success as a breeding stallion continues today even after his death in 2006.
