Eurocommerce stables have decided to retire their Holsteiner stallion Eurocommerce Berlin (Caspar) by Cassini I / Caretino. According to stable manager Wim Schröder it has been very challenging for the powerful grey jumper to meet the demands of international top sport while maintaining a breeding career at the same time.
Eurocommerce Berlin was ridden by Gerco Schröder and the pair was part of the winning Dutch team at 2006 WEG in Aachen andthe 2007 Europeans in Mannheim. As from 2009 Berlin will be available through fresh semen.

16 year old Belgian Warmblood stallion Parco by Darco / Attack Z follows in his sire's hoof prints to serve the breeders after having led a very succesful jumping career under Ludo Philippaerts.
Parco has won the Global Champions Tour in Cannes, placed fourth at the Europeans in Donauschingen and has been part of the winning Belgian team in Nations Cup in Aachen, La Baule and Dublin.
Ludo Philippaerts has competed Parco as well as his sire Darco in the Olympic Games. Parco is now facing a full time breeding career at Dorperheide Stud in Belgium just like his sire .
