2023 bay colt with a star and matching hind socks, speckled with ermine spots! I will attach some photos and video of full siblings - feel free to request more. Descanso should mature +/- 16.2hh with legs for days, big bright eyes, and a willing attitude: he is ready to work his way to the top for you!
Here is how Celle describes sire Dubarry: “With his jet black coat and splendid type, this son of Don Frederico knows how to show himself in a good light. Due to his enormous freedom of shoulder movement, and the power in his hindquarters, this young talent doesn’t know any movement limits. He demonstrated thee abilities during his 1st public presentations, and showed himself to be a very rideable and motivated athlete. Dubarry’s dam, Ribana (Rubinstein I) perfectly ensures the rideability as well as the willingness to perform, and makes Dubarry the modern young sire of the future.” Standing 17.1 and jet black, Dubarry turns heads even before viewers see his phenomenal gaits. Dubarry is quiet and calm under saddle, with an unbeatable work ethic.
Descanso WSS's dam, Fantasia, is by Fürstenreich, whose first crop of foals amazed. He is the sire of several Champion Foals at regional and provincial breed shows and championships. They all dazzled with their outstanding type and excellent movements. On several occasions, his offspring where sold at foal auctions in North Germany, achieving top knock down prices. A Fürstenreich filly became British National Champion in the 3-year old mare division. Fantasia was a foal of distinction at her inspection.
Fantasia is superbly athletic (peep the hind leg in that trot photo), sensitive, and bright. She is a favorite under saddle due to her extremely gentle nature and comfortable gaits – she is, quite simply, fun! Sensitive and light, with no spook or sass, Fantasia has the disposition for any ammy but the gaits for the ambitious dressage competitor. At 16.1 with a light, modern build and feminine head, Fantasia has exceeded expectations as a broodmare so far, passing her superb disposition and elastic movement to all of her foals.
