Iron Man van de Padenborre is an international 1.60 m stallion from the legendary DARCO x CHIN CHIN. This outstanding horse is a true black beauty and world superstar.

His extraordinary international career is connected with the Belgium rider Gregory Wathelet. This couple took part in many CSI5* shows around the world including Nations Cup finals, Global Champions Tours, Championships etc.

Iron Man is a big and strong stallion with lots of power but he still has a lot of blood himself and is really very careful jumper.

He is a proven good breeding stallion, he gives his foals strength, and is big and beautiful. At the age of just 7 the Belgian Horse Breeding Association (BWP) awarded him the title “elite”.

His father, Darco, was Ludo Philippaert’s top horse and took part in several European and World Championships as well as the World Cup Final. At the Olympic Games in 1992 they achieved a remarkable 7th place in the individual ranking. Mother Dirka van de Padenborre (by Chin Chin) descends from one of the best BWP-lines.
