2014-08-05 18:59:26 - Each year, Dressage at Devon chooses to follow a foal on their path to Dressage at Devon. This year, Damascas has been chosen.
Each year, the Dressage at Devon Breed Show hosts hundreds of well-bred colts and fillies. Each is the product of careful breeding and watchful tending as they, hopefully, grow into champions. And each year, Dressage at Devon chooses one to follow on their path to Dressage at Devon. This year, we will follow Damascus, a striking colt, with a big blaze and lots of chrome.
Damacus was bred and is owned by one of the world’s top riders, Catherine Haddad Staller. Catherine was actually first known in Germany for her success in breeding horses – long before she was recognized as a competitive rider. But, while her fame and success grew as a rider, Catherine remained focused on breeding the
best. A few years ago, Haddad Staller brought a filly, Raureif (Elfentanz x Ramiros Bube) that Haddad-Staller also bred, to the United States as a yearling. Now four years old, she is the new mother of a lovely Don Principe colt name Damascus.
“Standing next to his mother, he looks like the type of horse that should be stamped on a coin,” said Haddad Staller proudly.
Damascus is friendly and curious, already doing well with his introduction to things like being handled and groomed and walking with a halter.
