BELCANTO DKS (Verdi x Concorde)

Born in 2018, Belcanto DKS is a feisty, friendly , and curious Verdi (Quidam de Revel x Landgraf I) gelding, out of Belle Clara DKS (Concorde x Budweiser).
He is very well balanced and exibits excellent style over a jump, but his greatest quality is his “head”. After just a few weeks of being ridden, he already behaves like an experienced horse. Wheter its working in the arena, jumping or hacking out in new surroundings, nothing phases him. He learns very quickly and likes to work, demonstrating that rare quality of being forward going while staying calm and focused on his rider.

He inherited these excellent qualities from his mother, an energetic, smart and very brave mare.
Belle Clara DKS saw great success in the USA with Holly Shepherd competing up to the Grand Prix level, before retiring in perfect health to make wonderful babies. She has racked up top placings at the World Equestrian Festival, Gulf Coast Winter Circuit, Tryon Equestrian Center, Venice Equestrian Tour, Colorado Horse Park, Omaha International Horse Show , Great Southwest Equestrian Center… and the list goes on and on. Bella Clara competed in her first 1.50 m Grand Prix at age 9 (finishing 2nd!), and she was subsequently named the Open Jumper Circuit Champion at the Gulf Coast Winter Circuit in 2015 and 2016. She is also a two-time winner of the demanding Jumper Derby at the Gulf Coast Winter Circuit. She went on to win the Welcome Stake at the Venice Equestrian Tour and placed in two Grand Prix classes at the 2017 Gulf Coast Winter Circuit.

The sire, Verdi,
with rider Maikel van der Vleuten participated in many a major championship over the past decade and besides recording many wins it took home to Holland an Olympic team silver, team gold at the WEG and European team gold.

Apart from impressing in his ridden work, Belcanto DKS is also excellent from the ground- easy to catch, shoe, load etc. In addition he has a clean set of X-rays from 2021.Already having all the qualities to become a dream partner for someone, he will continue to develop.
We expect him to become an easy, reliable, fast and clear jumper, one that will bring lots of joy to his new team!
