Dondolo - Stacked Pedigree with Grand Prix Potential!
Monday, August 30, 2021
Gorgeous, competitive Small Tour horse, schooling the Grand Prix movements! 10 years old, sticks 16 hands, but has a lot of presence (current rider is 5' 10"). Registered, imported German Oldenburg with a performance pedigree stacked with International Grand Prix competitors (Don Diamond [Diamond Hit]/Rohdiamant). Solid Small Tour, plus schooling all his one tempis and starting piaffe/passage. Grand Prix potential.
Would be a super competitive Junior or Young Rider mount now and could move on to U25s. Very competitive in the show ring! Donnie has multiple Prix St. Georges scores over 75%, including a 76.471% in January at WEC! He also has succeeded in the Intermediare I, scoring up to 72.353%. Donnie was a star at 2020 GAIG/USDF Region 3 Championships - finishing in the ribbons in both of his highly competitive 50 horse classes.
He just recently made his CDI debut at the inaugural WEC CDI in Ocala. He held his own among stiff competition in the Small Tour, doing better and better each day, culminating in a 72.2% in his first ever freestyle and a 4th place finish. Very easy in the barn. Has always been sound, with no joint injections or required maintenance.
