10 years old, sticks 16 hands but has a lot of presence (current rider is 5' 10). Registered, imported German Oldenburg. Solid Small Tour and playing with the Grand Prix movements. Would be a super competitive Junior or Young Rider mount!
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. Donnie is adorable, with three above average gaits and plenty of talent for the national or international dressage ring. 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.
This handsome 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. Always has been sound, no joint injections or required maintenance.
