The world class Locarno 62 was purchased as a 5 year old from the PSI auction in Germany. He was bought for a staggering 1,000,000 Euros and still holds the record today as the highest priced 5 year old show jumper ever to be sold or imported to the British Isles.
He is now a world-renowned Grand Prix horse, performing with both Ellen and Steven Whitaker and winning over £200,000 in prize money.
Locarno 62 has been selected to represent Great Britain twice at the senior European Championships at San Patrignano 2005 and Mannheim 2007 at which he won the bronze medal. He was the best British horse resulting in Great Britain qualifying for the Olympic games. Unfortunately injury kept him out of the Olympics, although he had the best performance in the European Championships and has won and been placed in major Nation Cups, Grand Prix’s and World cups across the globe.
He has won and been placed at numerous major 5 Star Grand Prix competitions and world cup events. He jumped clear twice in the Hickstead Derby and has jumped double clears in Super League Nations Cups.
Locarno 62 is a consistently successful jumper and this phenomenal dark bay stallion is bred in the purple and has the looks, temperament and movement to die for. Watch him in action in our video link.
Locarno’s young stock is also proving to be very consistent, inheriting his scopey careful jump, correct conformation, elastic movement and fantastic temperament. His offspring; Lola V, JB Hotstuff, Abazu, Lovarno, La Mona, Viola, to name just a few from a very limited number of mares are now following in his footsteps and being selected for Nation cups, winning and placing in world classes and Grand Prix’s around the world.
Locarno must have the highest percentage rate for jumpers in the world, all with his wonderful temperament, movement, looks and confirmation.
