Danone I


This 2003 Swedish Licensing Champion is a king of movement. He is gorgeous, with an optimally uphill framed neck, an ideal top line, long legs and correct stature. He is on his sire's road to success!

It is hard to surpass the relevance of his pedigree. The combination of De Niro with the noble blood of Weltmeyer-Absatz and Bolero guarantees prime dressage quality. His movement has to be called phenomenal. In all three basic gaits, Danone I always shows plenty of expression and action in the foreleg and fantastic activity in the hind leg. His great ability for collection is visible in every step.

His son, Damaschino, was the winnner of the 2019 Bundeschampionship for 3-year-old stallions. At the USEF Para-dressage Championships the same year, Dolton, by Danone I, won the Adeguan National Championships in Mill Spring, NC with a 75.24%.

In 2014, Danone provided three aspirants to the final of the Nürnberger Burgpokal: Aside from Desperados and rider Kathleen Keller, Danönchen and rider Matthias A. Rath qualified, as well as Dante Weltino and rider Therese Nilshagen.

In 2013, Danone's son Desperados and his rider Kathleen Keller celebrated numerous victories on advanced level dressage competitions. They qualified for the finals of the Nürnberger Burgpokal for the second time.

In 2012, Danone and Theresa Wahler were victorious at Grand Prix and in 2011, Danone was in the limelight with several top auction horses. His son Delioh von Buchmatt won the Swiss stallions performance test with 9.5 points for trot, gallop, rideability and aptitude for dressage.

In 2010, Denina by Danone-Konsequent-Caprimond was the top horse of the Klosterhof auction who sold for 270,000 Euros. Danone's son Dankeschön won the performance test in Warendorf.

In 2009, Danone produced a premium stallion in Verden who sold for 320,000 Euros to Austria, the vice champion of Vechta who sold for 130,000 Euros, and in Westphalia a licensed stallion auctioned for 60,000 Euros to the state stud Warendorf.

In 2008, he celebrated his first successes in advanced dressage competitions.

In 2006, Danone qualified for the German Young Horses Championships and was a finalist in the World Championships of Young Dressage Horses in Verden.
