Arko III is by the world famous Argentinus, out of Unika and was the #1 showjumper in Europe in 2004, 2005 and 2006 with earnings in excess of £1.2m.
Some of his most notably progeny include Argento, ridden by John Whitaker, who has won over 16 Grand Prix’s himself so far and was the #1 showjumper in the world in 2015, and Aristio, who is jumping internationally with Anthony Condon and Team Ireland.

His sire, Argentinus, produced more than 30 approved stallions with Arko III being considered as the best.
Arko’s dam line goes back to the Dutch mare line 002. This is one of the best sport horse producing families in the world, illustrated by a whole series of international showjumping horses and successful sires such as: Darco (Ludo Philippaerts), Now or Never (Piet Raymakers), Friso (Guido Dominici), Sweet dream (Yann Candele), Chamberlain Z (David McPherson).

MAIN ACHIEVEMENTS:

TYPE OF MARE AND OFFSPRING

Arko brings his beautiful type to his offspring which are usually very chic. He transmits a long neck, an expressive head and strong hindquarters.
Arko also passes on his strength, his huge scope, an excellent technique and an outstanding temperament.
He fits mares who are not too heavy and with enough blood. Lighter built warmblood mares with energy would be the best match for him.
