Extremely kind horse looking for that special person who has the time and patience to let him reach his full potential.
Don Diamond was bought as a three year old and owned by the same person for 4 years. Unfortunately due to their work commitments running two businesses and having 4 horses to share their time between he hasn’t seen much of the world.
He takes conifdence from his rider and other horses. He hacks well in company and can hack on his own with a confident rider. He travels well with other horses but has limited experience travelling on his own so needs time to develop this.
He has been with us 8 weeks and has never bucked, reared or bolted, we truly believe he is a lovely horse and just want to find him the right person to do him justice.
During the 8 weeks with us he has strengthened up considerably and you can see what horse he could be given time.
Don Diamond combines three lovely paces with a sweet temperament and willingness to learn making him ideal for people wanting to progress through the Levels. This horse should not be discounted for the higher levels, he has been slowly produced by an amateur rider and is now ready to start climbing the career ladder. His sire Don Juan de Hus sired 14 licensed stallions and at the 2017 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, the 5-year old Don Martillo (by Don Juan x Benetton Dream) became World Champion and the Hanoverian licensed stallion D’Avie (by Don Juan x Londonderry) finished sixth, D’avie has won Gold at the WYHC in 2018 and 2019. His dam’s sire Escudo II brings versatility to the breeding being placed at the top of the 2009 Hanoverian studbook sharing his placing with Sandro Hit.
X-Rayed when he was sold as a 3 year old at the Brightwells Elite Auction.
