Dassett Premier is competing at

Osberton (1) - Sunday 5th May 2024

This eye catching youngster is by Quantino and out of a Capitalist / Clover Brigade mother.

Primo made the journey over the Irish Sea to our UK base in the summer of his 4yo year, gaining some valuable training with the DE team. He started his competitive career off in fine style in 2022 as a 5yo, with multiple placings at BE100 level and won a 5yo BE100 qualifier. He effortlessly upgraded to Novice level in the autumn and rounded off a successful year at the National 5YO Championships, where his professional attitude shone through. In 2023, he continued to impress with many Novice double clears. He made the trip north to Blair Castle where he stormed round the CCI-1*, making nothing of the tough ground conditions. He went on to jump double clear round the National 6YO Champs CCIYH-S2*, at Cornbury. An unfortunate miscommunication cost him 2nd place in the CCI-L2* at Bicton to round the year off, but he proved his worth, jumping one of few clears on the final day.

Primo will upgrade to Intermediate level this spring and has both the ability and attitude to be a contender for the Young Horse World Champs at Le Lion D’Angers at the end of the season.

This is an eye catching type and a fabulous jumper, taking to cross country like a true natural. We think Primo will score very well in the dressage phase, with three solid paces and a natural rhythm which makes attacking a test come naturally. He is a very careful and powerful jumper, but always remains brave and quick thinking across the country. Although he can be sharp at times, Kate always looks forward to jumping this horse. With maturity, he may well be the ideal Young Rider team prospect with the ability to go on up the grades.
