Diamond Power 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.
Diamond Power’s sire Rockrimmon Silver Diamond, bred by Patrick Gleeson Limerick, Ireland, is a well-known ID stallion and successful performer in dressage, jumping and eventing. In 1997 Rockrimmon was a finalist in the Royal Dublin Show loose jumping championship. In 1998 he went on to be the only stallion to be fully approved in the 12 week Central Performance Testing with the highest marks of any stallion. He earned a Bronze Merit in both showjumping and eventing and drew much attention with his high scores in dressage.
Diamond Power’s dam, Suma’s Poll Tax, bred by Suma Stud, Kilkenny, Ireland was sired by the famous Grade A showjumper Glenagyle Rebel. Suma’s Poll Tax and her dam, The Thatcherite, were recognized with numerous champion and supreme champion titles.
Diamond Power’s pertinent and strong performance attributes are his lightness and buoyance in movement, flexibility, and contractibility. He would awe observers with his signature performance of casual trot to four foot fences with rider.
Diamond Power remains in active training with his owner and they both hope to show jump again, eyeing the Don Little Masters. In the fall of 2018, Diamond Power was approved as a Class 1 stallion at the age of 19 and earned his Bronze Merit in Show Jumping at age 20. On another note, his required twenty xrays prior to inspection were amazingly stellar. His health history of twenty years replicates that without a single episode of lameness.
Diamond Power’s first progeny came spring of 2018. A colt that is superbly stamped by his dad’s dominant attributes. He has a stunning Irish head, ears and eyes and impeccably strong hips, neck and topline. He also has the same lightness and buoyance in movement.
