Animo, the sire of Placido, jumped internationally with Morten Aasen and has produced many international jumping horses: AK’s Anima, Andiamo Z, Clear Round Than Party, Billy Orange, Rarete, Kobble Creek Alimo, etc.
Animo is by H. Almé Z and has famous half-brothers like Galoubet, I Love You and Jalisco B. All big winners in the international jumping scene and, even more important, producers of top jumpers like Baloubet du Rouet, Quidam de Revel, Quito de Baussy, etc.
Placido’s maternal bloodline is impressive too. The Zolga-bloodline is one of the most well-known and most valued in KWPN breeding. Linky and The Shinto – from founding mare Zolga – performed at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles and all next generations produced valuable jumping horses.

Placido produces beautiful long lined horses (breeding index conformation: 108), who show excellent movements (108). He maintains height (+0.99).
Placido’s breeding index is 132, which is above average and 81% is very reliable.


Several Placido offspring was sold to Poland last year. Placido himself jumps nationally and competed at the CSI in Leszno. Polish breeders showed much interest in him and that made it interesting to hire him to Poland. In 2008 he is again stationed at the HBC La Socice Stables.
15 Placido daughters were registered in the studbook in 2006 of which three were awarded the ster predicate and five received the interim keur predicate. A score of over 60 per cent. Meanwhile 31 offspring of Placido were judged in free jumping and 21 have competed. At the end of 2006 Placido was approved for four years based on his three-year-old offspring.
