The KWPN approved stallion Vittorio caused a furore in show jumping ridden by Pieter Keunen and Tim van den Oetelaar. The stallion won many international prizes. At international level he was runner-up in the Grand Prix of Zelhem and Asten. Rider Tim van den Oetelaar and Vittorio took part in the Junior Nations Cup in Reims, France. They were part of the Dutch team that won the finals. In the Grand Prix the combination won individual second place.

He has 3 approved sons: George, who was KWPN approved in 2015, the reserve champion in 2013 Fandango HX and Don Diablo HX. In ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Don Diablo HX and Michel Hendrix secured the VHO Trophy during the KWPN Stallion Show at the beginning of 2016. The Dutch Sport Horse Sale alone sold 13 of Vittorio’s offspring which together realised the incredible amount of € 969.000,-.

Just like Vittorio himself, his offspring are uncomplicated, cooperative, careful and have excellent riding qualities. Vittorio can improve the conformation and movements of well-developed jumping mares. Vittorio can be used as a true refiner thanks to his excellent pedigree.
