Don Matcho is a beautiful, talented 9-year-old Westphalian gelding imported in January of 2014. He is coming 10 this year and is schooling all the movements through the Intermediare-I. He has particular talent for the flying changes and is also schooling his one tempis. He is currently for sale in Millbrook, NY. Don Matcho would make a lovely Young Rider horse with potential to move up to the Grand Prix. He has a wonderful sweet temperament but can be timid at times and needs a confident rider. With the right rider he will make a great partner to move up the levels.
Don Matcho has in the bloodline a combination of the best dressage sires of Germany combined with a strong motherline. Don Christobal was vice champion at the NRW approval of 2003, he is a son of the Grand Prix stallion Davignon out of a Donnerhall mother. Don Matcho's mother is bred by the Anglo Arab Matcho in combination with Goldstein, son of Gotthard.
Don Matcho comes from the Holsteiner line 453, his mother Mona is premium and her full sister gave the Grand Prix horse Winslow 15 (by Weltmeyer) who is competing internationally with Peter John Weston. Grandmother Gordon is resonsible for the breeding stallions Royal Dream (Royal Diamond), First Forez (First Heinrich), Coriall (Couleur Rubin), Da Matcho (Davignon) and Rubinels (Rubinstein). Royal Dream was finalist at the Bundeschampionat and is now competing at level S in dressage. Also the sport horses Delikol and Miss Matcho are descendants of Gordon who are competing at dressage level S. Contact Jennifer Marchand at 914-602-3255 for details.
