Tacorde was a fixture at the FEI level of show jumping for 6 seasons before being retired. Tacorde will always be remember as the big scope-y stallion with all the chrome and he was a crowd favorite all over Alberta. Some of his career highlights include winning the Spruce Meadows indoor GP’s 2x, being top placed at Brandon in almost every GP ever entered, a 3rd and 5th at Omaha International, jumping 4 clear rounds at RMSJ in two weeks and being one of the top earning horses at RMSJ in 2013, as well as being on the top 10 in Canada for money earned in 2013. Clearing 2x 1.98m during puissance competitions as well has having double clear rounds at Spruce Meadows in the International ring. He earned over $100,000 in his career while being campaigned very lightly in comparison to other GP horses. Taking his rider from the local GP level all the way up to the World Cup Qualifier level, he always forgave mistakes and came out ready to try hard no matter what and he loved a crowd!
Tacorde’s sire Olympic Concorde was named Horse of the Year in Holland in 2004 and was the number one producer of show jumpers by money won in the USA in 2002. He also spent many years at or near the top of the WBFSH. His international offspring are numerous including Audi’s Jikke, Kathja, Conquest II, Larino, Viktor and Isabella. Concorde was the youngest stallion ever to be awarded preferent, due to his endless list of national and international children. Concorde was elected Horse of the Year in 2004 and is the highest ranked KWPN stallion in the top ten of the WBFSH.
Tacorde’s dam Narcis W was by Goodtimes who has produced many successful horses in both the jumper and dressage rings and several approved stallions. Goodtimes is known for producing offspring with excellent conformation, good looks and athleticism for any discipline. Narcis W’s grand sire on the bottom is Damiro who is known for adding tractable minds and more great athletic ability.
Tacorde has been bred on a very limited scale before his retirement and his offspring are just starting to make their mark in the show jumping ring, so far up to 1.30m level with his best bred foals still moving up the ranks. He has produced the top scoring mare in Canada with the CWB as well as several premium mares. His foals out of good show jumping mares are highly sought after with a weanling colt selling for $15,000 in auction in 2016 (pictured below). Top professionals are seeking Tacorde foals out to develop them as upper level horses, he also has 2 licenced sons, one standing in New Zealand and one is Canada. Tacorde adds a great canter, excellent hind-end with very well balanced bone and a strong top-line to his foals as well as the scope, heart and desire to jump. His foals are moderately sized and come with a good splash of chrome!
