Since 2010 the Whitehouse Station, NJ based Parra has been qualifying a string of young stars for these U.S. Developing Prix St Georges and Grand Prix Horse Championships. This year’s Championships take place at Lamplight Equestrian Center on 18 - 23 August 2020.
Don Cesar, from Young Horse Medalist to Developing Grand Prix
One of Cesar Parra's most reliable and successful horses in the past decade, is the 10-year old Westfalian gelding Don Cesar (by Desperados x Manhattan).
Don Cesar enjoyed an illustrious career coming up through the ranks of the young horse and developing horse program. He got the bronze medal as a 5-year-old and was Reserve Champion as a 6-year-old. He went on to represent the United States at the 2017 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, Netherlands as a 7-year-old. As an 8-year-old he was the reserve champion as a Developing Prix St. Georges Horse, successful in the small tour internationally in 2019 and this year he will appear in the Developing Grand Prix Horse division as the number 2 ranked horse in the U.S.A.
