DP Dressage Team attended this weekend’s CDE with five horses competing on several levels with great outcomes for all our equine athletes and students.

The highlight of the weekend was the superb return of our beloved Santurion de Massa to where he belongs – on the dressage ring. After being away from competition, Santurion proves to be back on track and feeling in great shape. Our champion scored 72,246% on the Grand Prix test. We’re over the moon to have him back! This test had an even greater meaning as Santurion’s owner Chantal Chantal Lucas was here with us.

Garlie IGE who recently debuted in Grand Prix level confirmed that she is on an upward route, scoring 69.167% on the GP test and 68.156% on the GPS. We believe that this mare still has a huge progression margin ahead and we will continue working so that this super athlete can live up to her full potential.

Hotilas OC keeps on improving and getting more solid on the arena. Competing on Medium Tour, he scored 65,980% on Inter A and 66,847% on Inter B.

Yoann Pinto also competed with two of his partners. Rollex DP disputed the 5YO FEI level, scoring 77.200% on the Preliminary test. Douro AR conquered gold on both tests – PSG and Inter I.


We could not be prouder of our horses and students! Congratulations to the organization for a fantastic weekend. Finally, a word to all our sponsors and to the team who supports us every step of the way.

Now back home it’s time to prepare for the challenges ahead – the finale of the National Dressage Championship is just around the corner.
