Don Kontes

Swedish Warmblood Gelding
Don Schufro / Bellini
Born 2000

“DK” is most definitely a keeper and has become part of the family. Originally purchased to be partnered with his owner Deborah Kinzinger, it was not long after being imported from Sweden in the spring of 2010 that Deb allowed me to keep the ride on this very special horse. DK and I were very successful together in the small tour that summer with scores up to 75%. This success continued on throughout the 2011 winter season in Florida, garnering many ribbons to take home for Deborah. Unfortunately, we had an unexpected setback that summer. DK ended up in colic surgery. This was a very scary time for us all but this horse is tough and has come back from that setback stronger and more eager than ever to be in the competition ring at the highest level. So much so that not even 6 months later DK made his Grand Prix debut in Florida with so much success that he is now declared for the 2012 London Olympic Games!!

Chrevi’s Lavallo / Weinberg
Born 2000

“Capi” is the underdog. Purchased by Deborah Kinzinger in the late fall of 2010 as an investment horse, Capi has exceeded all expectations. Our intention was to take this horse that knew pieces of the Grand Prix, polish him up, campaign him once or twice in the GP and resell him. Well…. our plan didn’t go quite as intended. We decided to start in the small tour and were very successful in what was a very competitive year at this level due to the 2011 PanAm Games in Guatemala, Mexico. However, the Grand Prix was still too far in the distance. So, we packed up early for Florida and began training in order to do our first Grand Prix together in January 2012 in Florida. Which we did, very successfully I might add, scoring a thrilling 70% in Loxahatchee. And thus our journey began toward the 2012 London Olympic Games. 7 CDI’s later we are getting so close to the games I can taste it… stay tuned!!

“Beyonce” is our hope for the future. Purchased by Deborah Kinzinger in the fall of 2011 to be our next star. This gorgeous, regal, bootylicious girl is living up to her name and then some. I am so thrilled to have her in my barn, I know she will do great things!!

Weltklasse

Westphalen Colt
Wolkensong/Lemon Park/Bolero
Born 2011

“Willis” is my baby. He’s my second homebred out of my late stallion Wolkensong (Wolkentanz II – Sandro Song). Wolkensong was an amazingly talented, beautiful, kind stallion that has passed on all of those wonderful characteristics and more to this gorgeous colt. Weltklasse, german for World Class, is out of SPS Lili (Lemon Park – Weltmeyer – Bolero). I truly believe this stunning colt will live up to his name. Keep your fingers crossed!
