Exceptional young horse. Currently standing around 16,2hh. This stunning 3yo has got that presence everyone wants in a horse, without being sharp!
Dietz has 3 athletic paces, correct conformation, a kind easy temperament and a very impressive pedigree. Everything you would require in the modern day top class horse!!
He has been lunged and handled very well (but not spoilt), is good with the farrier, travel and lead. He is now ready for backing.
He's been vetted and is being sold with 35 x-rays all clear of chips and disease. Of course still open to any vetting
Videos available of him lunging and loose jumping. Can be seen at home in Glos, Post Code GL9 1HJ
FYI, Stallion information below
The 2011 High Premium Winner. The power of genes sets standards: Destano was the I-a High Premium winner at the 2011 Oldenburg Stallion Days in Vechta. After evaluation of his performance record in sport, assessment of his first crop and current physical state, the stallion committee declared him the absolute "Number One" of four and a half-year old stallions in a field of strong competitors that were also presenting their first crops. Destano is a good-sized stallion with a modern silhouette, correct conformation and the best character. Supple and dynamic, he knows how to put on a first class presentation by showing off his gaits. As expected with such a pedigree, he's highly rideable, very intelligent and eager to learn. He has won tests for young riding horses, was highly placed in classes for young dressage horses and took his 30-day test as well as his 70-day test in Schlieckau where he received outstanding scores for his gaits and rideability.
His sire, Desperados, made an impressive debut as a sire in 2009 at various German licensing venues and then again in 2010 and 2011. After winning the German Dressage Derby in 2010, Desperados stayed on victory road in 2011 winning several international Grand Prix tests with Kristina Sprehe in Rotterdam, Verden, Oldenburg, and Stuttgart. Special highlights in breeding are Desperado's daughters, Doris Day who became the 2010 Hanoverian Champion Mare and German Champion Mare, and Delany who took the 2011 Hanoverian Champion Mare title.
LAURIES CRUSADOR XX
The 2006 Hanoverian Dressage Stallion of the Year
Lauries Crusado xx was born in England in 1985 and began his career on the track. He achieved a handicap of 90.5 kilograms (200 lb) which opened the doors for him to warmblood breeding in Germany. The late renowned stallion owner, Maas J. Hell, discovered the bay, and thanks to his good relationship with the Hanoverian State Stud director at the time, Dr. Burchard Bade, Lauries Crusador xx was brought to the Niedersaechsische Landgestuet in 1991 where he became the first non-Hanoverian sire in the Hanoverian breeding program.
Almost no other Thoroughbred has influenced German warmblood breeding as this English sire has. For the Hanoverian Society, 2406 offspring have been registered, 248 daughters have been honored as States Premium Mares, and 55 sons have been licensed. In Celle, some of his best sons are at home; above all, Londonderry with his sons, Londontime, Lauscher, Liberty Gold and Lorenzio.
In sport, Lauries Crusador xx stands for pure performance.
