Description

Delta’s illustrious pedigree combines the best of Holstein blood with the Irish performance lines of Diamond Lad and Cornelscourt. Direct son of world-renowned Cavalier Royale, former World No1 Eventing sire whose progeny include Olympic, WEG and European medallists Call Again Cavalier, Ben Along Time and Imperial Cavalier alongside numerous 1.60m showjumpers.

Delta’s damsire Diamond Lad brings the blood of the great King of Diamonds - one of the most important stallions in the ISH studbook and his damline has produced both CIC2* and 1.40m horses.

Delta is incredibly athletic, powerful and bold with a superb scopey jump and excellent temperament - with which he stamps his progeny. Delta competed to 1.30m level with a young female rider and retired sound to stud. An excellent choice for amateur and professional riders. Selected by H.M The Queen for her own HOYS showing mare and Olympic medallist Sharon Hunt.

Breeding British on Delta: “A strong stamp of a stallion, with plenty of limb, good short cannon bones, strong hocks and a good sloping shoulder. A useful dual purpose sire.”

Across the board Delta’s foals have bold inquisitive personalities, presence, power and a lot of scope. He has had several repeat breedings.

Ranked top ten Futurity Eventing Sires 2018.

Delta Star C.E placed in the British Four Year Old Championship final at the Addington Young Horse Championships.

Olympic eventer Sharon Hunt: “We’re absolutely delighted with our foal by Shannondale Delta , who has been the perfect match for HSB Harriet. He is a wonderfully confident and friendly foal, lovely to handle with a bright, inquisitive demeanour . He has super conformation with great natural balance and athletic paces. We like him so much Harriet is now in foal again to Shannondale Delta!”
