Lady Bird Ducaet is a full sister of Kahlúa Ducaet (V. Arko III - M. Génépi Ducaet - VM. Parco), the very promising showjumping horse under Sanna Olsson (Sweden).
Lady Bird Ducaet was not granted a career as a showjumping horse. Due to a very unfortunate fall, she broke her kneejoint so that her ambitions as a jumping horse came to an abrupt end.
Her father Arko III comes from the same dam line as the number one in the world, Darco. The father of Arko III was the world-famous Argentinus. Arko III was the showjumping horse with the most wins in the world for three consecutive years. From his impressive records, we'd like to underscore the following highlights: he defended the colors of Great Britain at the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, he won the Dubai Classic and achieved a second place in the Grand Prix of Dubai in 2006. He triumphed in both the CSIO Grand Prix of Rome and the CSIO Grand Prix of Lucerne and won the prestigious Grand Prix of Calgary, Canada. Thanks to his achievements, his owners were proclaimed "Winning Owners" for two consecutive years. His descendants all stand out because of their exceptional technique on the jump.
On the dam 's side, Lady Bird Ducaet descends from the top showjumping horse Parco, winner of an endless row of absolute international jumping competetions. Parco's father was Darco, the legendary number one in the world.
Parco's mother, in turn, descends directly from the phenomenal world stallion Almé Z, who has delivered countless top products in both breeding and show jumping.
Lys de Darmen, the maternal grandfather of Lady Bird Ducaet, has one of the best bloodlines in the history of the Belgian Warmblood horse (BWP).
Lys de Darmen was therefore highly appreciated by "Ambassador BWP" and thus entered the gallery of the greatest in the BWP studbook.
Because of her valuable pedigree and her exceptional and promising qualities as a potential jumping horse, we have used Lady Bird Ducaet as a breeding mare.
Mid-in May 2019 she gave birth to Tignanello Ducaet (V. Diamant de Sémilie).

Lady Bird Ducaet is named after the wife of the American president Lyndon B. Johnson, the successor to the late president John F. Kennedy, who was murdered in 1963 in Dallas, Texas.
Since her childhood she has been known as Lady Bird ("ladybug"). During her childhood her nanny said about her: " She's as pretty as a ladybird ". This gave her the nickname Lady Bird, which replaced her real name for the rest of her life.
