Arturo 8 Retired To Stud

After a successful career, International showjumper Arturo 8 has been retired to stud. Arturo 8 damaged a tendon while competing in January 2003, although now fully recovered the owners High Offley Stud have decided the risk of further injury while competing at top level is too great. Arturo 8 (Arthur as he is affectionately known) is a favorite at the yard and will stand at the Stud in Staffordshire.

For the previous 12 months prior to his injury Arturo 8 was competed in the U.K. by Geoff Glazzard and Geoff Billington, winning and being placed in many International trials and Grand Prix’s. Arturo 8 began his career in Germany where he finished 4th in the Hamburg jumping Derby before being sold to America. In America he was competed by Candice King, winning and being placed in many large classes including the Tommy Bahama Challenge and The World Equestrian Federation Challenge.

Arturo 8 is a Holstein Stallion with excellent breeding lines. He inherited his jumping ability from both his father Athlet Z and mother Wodka who is by Lord, who have both bred other International horses.

His progeny are proving to be outstanding in all spheres. He has offsprings competing Internationally in showjumping and eventing and his first season foals in the U.K have won several showing classes on the county circuit.

Arturo 8 is one of the finest breeding stallions in the U.K and we look forward to his new career at stud.
