Already placed 2nd in a riding horse class!

Don Stefano, wow, what a Black Beauty! His sire Don Crusador is a Don Bosco x Lauries Crusador which is a Champion combination. At the 2000 Stallion Licensing in the Niedersachsen Halle in Verden , Germany , a pitch black Don Bosco x Lauries Crusador xx stallion, was celebrated as Champion of his licensing year. As a crowd pleaser and absolute favorite of the judges, the young stallion impressed each day throughout the approval procedures. Descending out of Larissa, a Lauries Crusador xx x Pik Bube I, was purchased by the Landesgestut in Celle .

  Don Stefano’s dam site goes back to the world class stallion Weltmeyer. Weltmeyer exploded on the scene as the Champion of the 1986 Stallion Licensing in Verden. After sweeping all the major German Championships, he began his breeding career in 1988 and since then has been bred to more than 200 of the best German mares each year. He is now fulfilling his promise with extraordinary offspring. In short, Weltmeyer must be considered one of the All-Time-Great Hanoverian sires. You can read more about these stallions on their websites.

Don Stefano is a superstar in the most favorite color and is a superior example for the rideability and movement which will come with good dressage bloodlines and foundations. He is elastic and has a great rhythm, swinging through his whole body. He was accepted to the keuring, which is proof of his high quality but got gelded instead as his owner decided to sell him as a dressage horse. He was ridden inside the covered arena as well as outside already and is doing very well. He is easy to handle, loves to cuddle and whinnies if you enter the barn. He is in training with the young lady from the video and she rides him with other horses in the arena at the same time and all is well. He is well behaved and also shows his huge gaits off at the lunge line and stays lofty and with a lot of schwung all the time.

He has a very active and quick hindleg and piaffe and passage will come naturally to him. His extensions are already mind blowing and with even more balance, muscles and experience, they will improve even more. This is an outstanding opportunity to buy a future FEI horse – he is the complete package. He never showed a spooky side nor did he look at new things and he concentrates on his work and tries to please his rider every time out. Unbelievable for such a young boy, the mental qualities of Don Crusador’s offspring are really amazing.

This is a horse for everybody alike and for sure a great addition to a show barn as he will collect ribbons for you with his great attitudes and judges will remember his fancy expression. He is definitely the quality for a professional but easy enough for an amateur as well. He is ready to go to his new owner and impress with his looks and potential for the upper levels. This boy will go his way up the levels with ease and fun, hopefully you’ll be the one guiding him there and getting all the nice compliments you are looking for.
