Rising 12-year old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Grand Prix confirmed with an exceptional blood line (Gribaldi x Prima Donna O x Donnerhall). Gribaldi, leading dressage sire on the 2014 WBSFH, captured the top spot as sire of the highest scoring international Grand Prix horses. Donnerhall, one of the most influential breeding stallions in dressage, was the winner of many European Grand Prix competitions and a member of 3 Gold Medal World Cup teams. He is said to be one of the great dressage sires of the century.
Zonnerhall O has acquired many of the great traits of his prestigious bloodline and has all of the elements of a very successful dressage horse.
Zonnerhall O has been in training with Susanne Benne, Pferdewirtshaftmeister FN, since he was 5 years old; he has been brought up through the levels with great success. He was the 2014 US Nationals Intermediare 1, open class Reserve Champion.
He is now showing Grand Prix and has proven himself with scores in the mid 60’s and is continually advancing. He has three wonderful gaits with a very beautiful classical Piaffe and Passage.
His ability to focus and work ethic is very impressive to me, as his trainer. He is consistently improving his Grand Prix and I’m super pleased with his performance.
Zonnerhall O will make a great partner for an amateur working toward their gold medal or professional with higher goals. He is also very suitable for a young rider who wants to make the transition into U25. He has been shown by my daughter at 14 in the Junior Team and Individual test and he took excellent care of her.
Whether you are an aspiring professional, talented adult amateur or enthusiastic young rider, you won't want to miss this opportunity to own a very special horse. This lovely gelding has an absolutely consistent show record throughout the levels.
Zonnerhall O is smart, willing and very focused in his work. His strong sides are his elegant looks with great ridability that make him a great performer.
Zonnerhall O enjoys time in the pasture daily. He loads and travels well and is easy to clip. He has always received the highest quality care to maintain him and keep him happy in his work. Zonnerhall O is ready to take his new rider into the ring with confidence that comes from experience and excellent training.
He has clean x-rays from November 2015.
