The VDL Stud has announced that Cardento, one of their flagship stallions, has passed away at the age of 27. 

Born in 1992, by Capitol I x Lord, VDL Cardento was very successful in the sport – competing internationally under Sweden's Peter Eriksson. Together, the two won three team silver medals – at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, at the 2002 World Championships in Jerez and at the 2001 European Championships in Arnhem. 

VDL Cardento has sired countless of horses jumping at top-level, such as Cafino, Carisma, Cyklon, Carrera VDL, Flip’s Little Sparrow, Glory Days, Matrix, Nice Stephanie, Thriller P and Zacramento. 

Our thoughts go out to the team at VDL Stud, and all those connected to Cardento.
