Belgian rider Rik Hemeryck looses his ride on the twelve year old gelding Quarco de Kerambars (Darco x Skippy II). Rik has been riding the Darco-son since he was four, and the two have been very successful together. In 2011 they won the Grand Prix at the Sauté Hermes in Paris and they were third in the World Cup qualifier in Mechelen. Rik and Quarco have also been picked for several Nations Cup teams. In the future the gelding will be seen under French rider Carine Gagliani, the daughter of Quarco de Kerambars' owner, Suzanne Gagliani.
