Capriana is the full sister to two FEI dressage horses; Carnegie and Calimar owned/trained by Darnell Dressage. Contucci won the dressage portion of his 100-Day test with an impressive 147.11, earning six ‘9’s’ and overall Class I Status. He then successfully showed in Germany, including winning a Bundeschampionat qualifier with 9.2 out of 10 possible points. After his importation to the US, Contucci was only lightly shown, but was trained through the FEI levels and always offered a wonderful rideability that we see consistently passed to his offspring. Contucci, the 2005 USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year & the 2009 USEF Dressage Sire of the Year, consistently earns top rankings on the USDF and USEF lists of Leading Sires and has sired more USDFBC Grand Champions or Reserve Grand Champions than any other stallion. His offspring are successfully competing from Training through FEI Levels with Amateur, Junior, and Professional riders.
