2011 Zweibrucker Bay Gelding - CF Don Valentino

Registered with RPSI.  Standing:  17"

Don Valentino was the 3rd highest scoring colt in the nation and Canada on the 2011 inspection tour! His sire Don De Marco is by GP Stallion Donnerwetter who is the sire of the legendary Donnerhall. He is out of mare Flemmingh.

Don has been brought along slowly and correctly! Lots of trail miles and some shows. Super calm in all settings.  His gaits are light, uphill and breath-taking for such a big guy. Outstanding bone and confirmation will lend to a lifetime of soundness. We use him to "babysit" the mature horses at shows! An amateur's dream and could be ridden by a youth or senior! He is truly a '2' in temperament and super smart. Scored an 8.5 at foal inspection over 7.5 under saddle at a Young Horse Show. Ready to move up the levels. This is a once in a lifetime horse!
