Messenger VF

Monte Bellini x Darco x Nicias III

Messenger VF, a 2013 Chestnut, Canadian Sport Horse Stallion, is currently based Parkland County, AB.

The 2022 season was a remarkable one, with many successful trips and a Nations Cup placement with Team Ireland. Messenger VF was also granted Full Stallion Approval with the KWPN. He will be the second North American Horse in History, next to the great Judgment, to receive this approval. He is now the only Canadian Stallion, in history, to be Fully Approved.

Messenger VF is incredibly stylish, boasting strong/energetic gates, and effortless scope while jumping. It is clear to see that he is the genetic combination of two winning competitors on the international show jumping scene.

Monte Bellini, won the second round of the 2012 FEI World Cup in s’Hertogenbosch under Philipp Weishaupt. The pair was later named to the German Olympic team, but could not attend the Games in London due to a minor ailment. Monte Bellini’s ground covering, uphill canter, powerful back, outstanding technique, and bascule brought him the title of Double Champion at two consecutive German Bundeschampionates where he earned record scores.

Darco, one of the most accomplished show jumping sires of all time, is a global leader in producing the most offspring competing at Grand Prix level, including the great mare, Sapphire. He has won countless top level victories in international showjumping, including Olympic Games, World Equestrian Games and World Cups.
