L’Arc De Triomphe gives power, scope and an excellent jumping technique. He is an excellent producer of blood types and adds balance and good movement. His offspring display a nice shoulder, good mouths and nice neckline. He suits medium to large mares and is best crossed with a mare with good temperament. L’Arc will work well for showjumpers and eventers and will never produce a chestnut.
