Dante Quando OLD is David’s stallion…purchased on impulse at the Borculo Elite Foal Auction in the Netherlands in August 2014 when the breeder wouldn’t sell him the mare.
This beautiful stallion is by the German superstar, Dante Weltino. Dante Weltino’s dam is full-sibling to Olympic dressage horse Riwera de Hus. At just 9 years of age, Dante Weltino was selected on the Swedish team to compete at the Rio olympics. Unfortunately injury while in RIo prevented him from competing, but he is now back to his best and competing in international grand prix, including competing at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon in 2018.
His dam is the three quarter sibling of the top-class mare Fifty-Fifty, the champion of Oldenburg at Rastede in 2010. Great grand dam Schickeria is dam of the Olympic dressage horse and approved stallion Quando-Quando (who also competed at the WEG 2006). His famous Schimbine damline produced the approved stallion Dylano. De Niro, number 1 in the world, appears two times in Dante Quando's pedigree.
Dante Quando OLD has recently arrived in Australia from Germany and has settled into life Down Under like he’s been here forever. His character is second to none, and everyone who meets him falls in love with him. He had his first ride in Australia with 18yo Charlie Welsh the day he was released from quarantine and did not skip a beat, testament to his character and the wonderful training he had in Germany.
In Germany, he was licensed as a rising 3yo (he is approved for both Mecklenburg and Oldenburg) and performance tested (he was the equal winner of the dressage at his performance test).
In Germany he was ridden by the incredible young horse rider Eva Moller. He won his very first competition at Melle, and went on to be 2nd and 3rd for 3yo stallions at the prestigious Rastede Oldenburg championships.
In 2018 as a 4yo, Dante Quando won his 4yo sport test, and was the second highest scoring 4yo stallion in the whole of Germany for the 4yo test (behind popular Helgstrand stallion Jovian).
Dante Quando went on to win the 4yo stallion class at the prestigious Rastede Oldenburg championships.
He then won the German Bundeschampionate for 4yo stallions!
In 2019 As a 5yo, he completed his 5yo sport test coming second again to Helgstrand’s Jovian. This completed his licensing requirements and so he has a lifetime breeding licence.
We are incredibly proud of our impulse purchase’s achievements so far and excited to see what the future will hold for him in sport and breeding in Australia :)
