Donnatelli is sired by the legendary stallion Blue Hors Don Schufro who certainly put his stamp on this handsome horse.
The ideal temperament for a competitive schoolmaster combined with the international 'look'. Donnatelli offers you the compete package. He has been exceptionally well trained and maintained by his owner who is regrettably forced to sell. Donnie has no vices. He is very easy to handle and is always a gentleman. He does not need to be in a professional program and can be enjoyed by riders of any level.
This is a confirmed small tour horse with easy one-tempi changes. We have 'played' around with piaffe/passage and he has had one start at Intermediate 11 for a 64% in Wellington FL. Donnie's daily work consists of suppling exercises, transitions and physical conditioning on the track. He loves to be hacked out and will give confidence to even the most timid riders. He has a very laidback attitude but is easy to motivate for the more advanced movements. Donnie comes to the arena with a great attitude everyday. He is always 100% honest and willing to do his job. He tries his hardest from the first step, takes pressure well and is not easily offended.
Built 'on the bit' with naturally good self-carriage. Donnie has a beautiful soft contact that makes riding him a pleasure. You can easily make power without getting stronger in the hand. The canter is big and ground covering with excellent flying changes. Shown under the name "GB Donatelli". Watch the video and then ride the horse. You will not be disappointed! Price reduced.
