The Hanoverian stallion San Remo has been selected to compete at the 2004 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden. Ridden by Edward Gal, the black stallion San Remo
did not need to run any selection trials to compete in Verden.
Any rider ranked in the top ten of FEI/BCM World Riders' Ranking is allowed to compete a young horse in Verden. Due to his second place at the 2004 World Cup Finals and other various top placings at World Cup competitions, Edward Gal is a top ten member.
Bred by Walter Willhaus in Krummhoern, Germany, San Remo is owned by the Dutch duo Joop Van Uytert - F. Willemsen. San Remo is licensed for the Hanoverian Verband and the KWPN association. He's by Wolkentanz I out of Valente (Volturno x Azur). San Remo did his HLP test for the Hanoverian Verband in Adelheidsdorf and his HLP test for the KWPN in Ermelo. The KWPN judges gave San Remo 7 for walk, and 8 for trot and canter.
The now 5-year old San Remo made a good impression in the 2003 Pavo Cup Finals in which he finished fifth under Edward Gal. At the 2002/2003 KNHS/KWPN Stallion Competition he finished second overall at the finals in 's Hertogenbosch.
