This is a rare opportunity to own a once-in-a-lifetime horse. Desario's talent had been obvious since day one and he has proven his competitiveness every year as he moved up the levels, from Futurity classes, to winning the US National Championships for 5-year-olds, to his State Championship titles in California, all the way to FEI level and CDI competitions.
Desario made his debut at FEI level in 2019 with strong scores both at CDIs and national competitions. He scored multiple times in the 70s, and placed 3rd at the CDI in Burbank. To top off the season, Desario won the Prix St. Georges open class at the California Championship against a strong field of more than 20 professional contenders with over 73%. Christian and Desario earned another 73% in the I-1 Freestyle, bringing home that state title as well. On the last day of the show, Desario was also named I-1 Grand Champion. And keep in mind, this was only the first season at this level for the talented bay gelding.
Toward the end of a challenging 2020, due to the global pandemic, Desario made his debut at Grand Prix, scoring in the high 60s. Since then his Piaffe and Passage tour has solidified even more, and at only 10 years of age his trajectory is continuing to point upward, making him a strong contender at the highest level of Dressage. By mid-2021 Desario and Christian already broke the 70% hurdle at GP.
