Idocus moves to California Dec 04, 2008
After a very successful International Dressage career, the 18 year old KWPN approved stallion Idocus will now focus more on his breeding career. Idocus will make his new home at DG Bar Ranch in California and will now be more available for breeding with fresh semen. Idocus will still be showing with his new partner Ashlyn DeGroot. Ashlyn is an up and coming young rider who will make great strides with Idocus. They make a beautiful pair.
Idocus flew to California on Tuesday and arrived healthy and safe. He is getting used to his new surroundings and is living in the same stall where Wanroij spent so many of his years.
Idocus was the KWPN-NA 2007 Horse of the Year and has had an extensive and successful International Dressage career, representing Holland in the 2004 Olympic Games and representing the USA at the World in Cup Las Vegas and the World Equestrian Games in Aachen. He is also the only horse to win the Dressage at Devon Breed Show as a youngster and go on to win the Devon Grand Prix as an adult.
