Dumbledore, Oldenburg gelding by Dormello x Campari M, born in 2002, standing approximately 17.1 hands.
Dumbledore, what a cute
name? It suits him, he is an attractive boy with very good gaits and he can be
quite the clown in the barn. He is by the famous Dormello, a liver chestnut
stallion whom will no longer be available for breeding, as he will be focused on
his dressage career. The Oldenburg stallion
Dormello is by Dream of Heidelberg I
x Freiherr x Louvre. He was the Champion of the 1999 Oldenburg Stallion
Licensing and has always been stationed at Stallion Station Ludwig Kathmann in
Holtrup, Germany. Dormello was never actively competed, but at the beginning of
2006 he put down a remarkable performance under Oliver Oelrich at the national
show in Sögel, Germany.
The liver chestnut caught
the interest of the Berlin based French businessman Jacques Albeck, who
purchased him soon after. Dormello will be trained to Grand Prix level under the
supervision of Dolf Dietram Keller. Albeck aspires a place in the French team
for the 2008 Olympic Games in Bejing, China.
himself proves to be a true Dormello son. He has an expressive front leg and
moves with a lot of schwung and rhythm. He is a willing partner and already
shows the talent for piaffe and passage and for the higher levels of dressage.
He is a prospect for the upper levels and will make an impression on the judges
and onlookers alike. He just hovers over the ground with lofty steps and a good
extended trot work. He collects nicely in the canter and tries to do his best
every time out. His work ethic is great and he was ridden inside an out. He
stayed calm and kept working in the out door arena next to bucking and cantering
horses in the paddock right in his eye sight and he never missed a beat. As the
videos were taken in the indoor arena for this site, other horses went wild,
took off and Dumbledore still kept his positive attitude up and kept
concentrating on his rider. We sold another Dormello son
(Dormello HW) to the US
in 2006 and he is actively competing and very successful doing so with his new
will make you the proud owner of a horse with class and a good mind. He is at
solid second level right now, training third level at this point with flying
changes, traver work and pirouettes.
