2019 CDS First Level Open Reserve Champion (72%)
Walentino is a compact chestnut gelding, born and raised at CNDC. We have seen this special youngster grow up and develop into one of the most rideable horses we have had on our property. His current rider, Christian, is convinced that by the time Walentino turns 7, a Developing Horse PSG is likely to be well within the limits for the pair.
This Wolkenstein II son has won over the judges both at show at home and away with his elasticity and push from behind. Walentino is currently showing Second Level Dressage, even flying changes have worked already. He has been off the property, showing in Rancho Murieta and also schooling some cross country jumps and playing in the water! Make sure to check out the third video for all the fun we had!
Walentino is by our proven mare Ferera, who has produced many high performing Dressage Horses. Her most prominent offspring is Wintessa N, who was placed top 5 at the CDI in Del Mar. Also Quintano and Donna Dia, who have been shown at Second and Third level, are out of Ferera.
This gelding is sired by Wolkenstein II, one of the best sons of Weltmeyer. Wolkenstein II had faultless character, extraordinary willingness to perform, tremendous presence and outstanding dressage and jumping ability. Almost 50 licensed sons and more than 150 state premium mares rand state premium candidates are tracing back to Wolkenstein II.
