Don Diablo HX is in the prime of his sports career. Under Michel Hendrix, the chestnut stallion really stands out in the circuit. Don Diablo HX won the VHO Trophy during the KWPN Stallion Show 2016. He also gave a fantastic performance during the CSI5* Dublin Horse Show last summer. The fact that he is very careful and has an exceptional jumping technique helps him enormously as a jumping horse. He also shows much ability and perfect reflexes.
Don Diablo HX is an offspring out of the world-famous Nikibloodline. This bloodline produced an innumerable number of talented sport horses including Nick Skelton’s Apollo that won the Aachen Grand Prix and also Hickstead, who via Ekstein, is out of Don Diablo HX’s direct dam-line. Promiss Me, Ian Millar’s Olympic horse, and the gelding Lajos that jumped 1.50m under Peter Geerink are also out of the Nikibloodline.
The chestnut stallion, Don Diablo HX, who was KWPN approved in 2011, looks a lot like his father Vittorio. A beautiful type with a lot of thoroughbred expression and a scopey, light-footed canter. Characteristic of Don Diablo HX is also his expressive head and charisma. The chestnut stallion can add technique and elasticity to the breeding of jumping horses. He seems to best suit nicely-built mares.
