Royale Diamond is a loyal and life long partner to Michelle Regan since 2001. This stallion demonstrates his genuinely kind character through his eighteen years of production and progress by a novice, now amateur. Although he made few appearances in the show ring, his willingness, athleticism, movement, and pride were ever present at home and amongst the professional horseman who observed him.
Royale Diamond’s sire Cavalier Royale remains one of the top Irish Sport Horse sires in history. Described by the indefatigable chronicler of the Irish Horse, Nicholas O’Hare, as ‘the most successful Continental stallion to stand in Ireland’. Cavalier Royale has sired numerous international show jumpers and eventers, including progeny that have competed in the World Equestrian Games and the Olympics. Moreover, Cavalier Royale jumped internationally and was a Puissance winner at 7’3”.
Royale Diamond’s dam, Diamond Problem ID, was sired by yet another top Irish stallion, Diamond Lad, son of King of Diamonds. Diamond Lad, a purebred Irish Draught, was a prolific sire to many international show jumpers and eventers.
Royale Diamond’s pertinent and strong performance attributes are his powerful jump, scope and impeccable calm and confident mind. He enters any ring and performs with absolute predictability and consistency. His work attitude is solid and his athleticism has never been challenged. He effortlessly schools a meter 1.25 and has not had any professional training. Royale Diamond’s flawless performance and school master attitude highlighted and enhanced the confidence of a novice 18 year old rider as they pinned at numerous rated shows in show jumping.
Royale Diamond remains in active training with his owner and they both hope to show jump again, eyeing the Don Little Masters and Low Amateurs. This past fall 2018, Royale Diamond was approved for the Irish Draught Sport Horse Studbook and received a score of 80 for both confirmation and movement at the age of 19.
Royale Diamond’s first progeny came last spring. A filly that is superbly stamped by her dad’s dominant attributes. She has the exact calm attitude and confidence, and notable scope and balance with movement. In addition, her conformation replicates his with impeccably strong hips, neck and topline. Royale Diamond’s second offspring is due this spring.
Literature says Cavalier Royale has yet to produce a top stallion son. It could be that he has yet to be discovered.
