Bensons Dynamite is a half-brother to Bensons Quicksilver on the dam side, to one of our foundation mares, Noblewood Park Charlie.
His Sire; Diamant De Semilly is one of the best stallions to ever come out of France.
In 2016, he topped the WBFSH Sire Rankings for the second successive year, cementing his position as the best jumping sire in the world.
Bensons Dynamite is from our 2019 crop and was only collected once before being gelded. His pedigree on both sides was too interesting to not save his genetics for the future.
For that reason, there is a finite number of doses available.
He has a big frame with excellent movement and great temperament.
Dynamite will appeal to the discerning breeder looking to tap into both his exceptional sire and dam lines. He is a modern warmblood suited to breeding for both show jumping and eventing disciplines.
This son of Diamant De Semilly will be very interesting to watch how his future show jumping career begins next year in 2024.

Dam: Noblewood Park Charlie has produced an exceptional foal every time for Bensons Sport Horses including Bensons Femme Fatale, Bensons Verismo and Bensons Quantum Leap. Charlie’s dam Cadence is from the number one dam line - Holsteiner Stamm 776. Stamm 776 has produced many famous International show jumping horses, including Calvados I and II, Acorado, Lordanos and the world class Ramiro. Cadence, a German state premium imported Holstein mare was purchased by Noblewood Stud in 1999. She is by Coriander, a sire that was known for producing very rideable horses with exceptional movement with quiet minds including 7 approved stallion sons.
Dynamite's maternal great grand sire, Caretino, is one of Germany’s top stallions, producing horses that excelled in both the dressage and jumping rings. He died at the age of 28 and had produced 650 offspring that were registered for competition with the German FN. At the time of his death, Caretino offspring had earned more than 3 million Euros.
Dynamite’s paternal grand dam, the Selle Francais mare, Opaline Des Pins produced five approved stallions all jumping to 1.60m including three Olympians, Jus de Pomme, a double gold winner at the Atlanta games, Quintus and Tresor d’Opaline, both competed in Beijing. Two of her mares competed at the 1.40m to 1.50m level. She also produced renown showjumpers, Richebourg, Shogoun II and Magister. Opaline Des Pins is from the SF 71 dam line, out of Jasmina who was by the famous Alme Z stallion whose influence is still incredibly strong today.
