Armitage is a stallion with careful technique, impressive ability, an exemplary bascule, and a great desire to jump. Under Markus Ehning, Armitage climbed the ladder of success at breathtaking speed: participation in the Bundeschampionate twice, international ribbons at the age of seven, VTV Oldenburg Jumper Stallion of the Year in 2005, and in 2006, he wrapped up the season by taking second place in the finals of the young horse tour in Munich.

Guido Klatte Jr. has since taken over the reins, and the stallion has been performing equally as well with him. After winning the German Junior National Championship Finals, the pair came very close to a repeat last year. In 2012, Armitage and Klatte won the gold in Freudenberg, the bronze in Aachen, and were 6th in the finals in Hünxe. This was in addition to a silver medal in the Junior "Preis der Besten" at Warendorf, and two CSIO-J Nations Cup victories in Bonheiden, Belgium and Moorsele, Belgium.

His bloodlines mak
e Armitage the "successor to the throne" of Argentinus. With Grannus, Inschallah AA, Furioso II, and Condor, all of the great stallions in Oldenburg breeding are lined up like a string of pearls. Armitage's dam, El.St. Farina stems from the successful Oldenburg mare line of Ballkrone which has produced Oldenburg auction horses, as well as stallions like Royal Star (private stallion in Austria) and Wenz (private stallion in Bavaria).

Right from the beginning, Armitage drew attention as a sire because of his strong moving foals. In 2006, his first son was licensed, and since then his offspring have created quite a stir. His daughter, Grace, has achieved international placings under Janne Friederike Meyer, and Armitage Boy, ridden by Aymeric du Ponnat, and Appearance have also been internationally successful. Armitage provided two contestants at the World Jumping Championships for Young Horses. One of them was the 6 yr. old Altesse Gold who was sold at the 2012 P.S.I. Auction for an astounding price of 800,000 Euro.
