Don Dessa is out of our beautiful Imported mare St. Pr. A. Dunja – Dark Pearl (Dimaggio/Feininger/Lungau) who is an extremely classy, black elegant mare with three excellent paces and a fascinating dressage pedigree. She was imported to North America and spent two years in the Hunter-Jumper ring with Junior riders prior to switching back to her dressage career. The keen mare has an excellent fluid walk, a swinging active trot and a round, jumping correct canter. She has first-rate dark hard feet, straight correct legs and a correct conformation. Her elegant face, uphill neck connection and strong back compete the attractive package. Her sire, the Dimaggio was the FEI 5 Year Old World Yong Dressage Horse Champion and went on to be victorious up through Advanced Level. He has become a renowned brood mare sire, making the 2012 Dimaggio daughter Dimma who was crowned the Westphalian champion mare in Münster-Handorf, and the Bronze Medal winner at the German Elite Broodmare Championships in Lienen. Daugher Sophie trotted to the win at the Elite Oldenburg Mare Show in Rastede Germany in 2010. The world record breaking young dressage horse Woodlander’s Farouche is just one of his descendants with successes at Advanced Level. Dimaggio’s sire Don Primero was 1990 Bundeschampion and under Karin Rehbein and highly successful to Grand Prix. Dimaggio sadly passed away in 2015 making this bloodline extremely coveted.
Dessa is really well handled and will be ready to start as a 3 year old this spring and her price will go up with training.
