Dondolo -Second Level to FEI in One Year!
Saturday, May 16, 2020
Dondolo, “Donnie”, is a 9 year old, 16 hand, imported Oldenburg gelding. Donnie is a talented, quick-study–coming all the way from schooling Second level to being solid Intermediare-I and schooling some of the Grand Prix (including all of the one tempis) in about a year. He is very trainable! Donnie is adorable, with three above average gaits and plenty of talent for the national or international dressage ring. In his first ever show above Second level and in the USA, he put in an excellent Prix St. Georges test, scoring over 75%! He has fabulous ring presence. He would be a dynamite Junior/Young Rider mount with the potential to move on to the U25 classes.
This young FEI horse has a wonderful performance pedigree with numerous international and Olympic dressage competitors. His sire, Don Diamond, is a successful grand prix horse whose sire (Diamond Hit), grand sire (Don Schufro), and great grand sire (Donnerhall) were all prolific international dressage sires and outstanding international grand prix competitors. His dam’s sire and grand sire, Rohdiamant and Rubinstein I, were both also internationally successful grand prix competitors and renowned temperament sires. Donnie is truly bred to succeed in the FEI dressage ring!
Donnie is very easy to deal with in the barn. He gets turned out everyday, enjoys hack day in the snaffle, does great over cavalettis, and hops right on the trailer.
