Pikko del Cerro HU is a fantastic athlete with elastic movement, natural balance and exceptional intelligence. From in-hand at Devon, through the FEI Young Horse Program, and into the CDI arena, Cerro has been a standout. As a two-year old, Pikko del Cerro earned the record setting score of 90% at the prestigious Dressage at Devon Breed Show and he was named Champion Stallion in 2009. That same year, he won his first National Championship at the USEF/Markel Six-Year Old National Championships. In 2011 Cerro captured the USEF Developing Horse National Championships and competed at the USEF Intermediaire I Championships. The following year he won the USEF Developing Grand Prix National Championships. In 2013, Pikko del Cerro HU graduated to the International CDI Grand Prix ring with Lisa Wilcox and had multiple CDI wins with scores over 70% through 2016.
The talent for the FEI work is strongly rooted in Pikko del Cerro’s genetics. His sire Pik L is a Class I stallion that finished 4th with 128 points overall at his 100-day test in Germany. His extensive show career has included two Pan-American Games, USDF Horse of the Year titles, and three USEF Junior National Championships with three different riders. Pik L has sired two approved stallions and is the damsire of the approved stallion Bodyguard, as well as siring many Elite/EMC daughters. Pikko del Cerro’s damsire, Rohdiamant, was a very successful Grand Prix horse including being long-listed for the US Olympic Team with rider Lisa Wilcox. As a breeding stallion his influence will be felt for generations to come with over 50 approved sons to continue his legacy. Cerro’s grandsire is Grundstein II, a versatile producer of both dressage and show jumping horses. Grundstein II offspring have competed at the WEG and Olympic Games. The combination of Rohdiamant-Grundstein II also resulted in the stallion Glock’s Romanov.
With his retirement from international sport, we are finally able to make this exceptional stallion available to breeders and we’re looking forward with great excitement to his future foal crops.
