CALLAHO’S BENICIO, the Six-Year-Old Champion at the 2011 Bundeschampionate is now available through Oakford Equine Hospital (OEH), in a recently signed deal that sealed the exclusive agency for OEH with Gestut Famos and Lodbergen.
Callaho’s Benicio the licensed son of Belissimo M, scored a 10 for his walk and trot, 9.5 for overall impression and a 9.0 for his canter in the final for Six-Year-Old dressage horses at the 2011 Bundeschampionate. At his 30-day test he scored 10 for walk, trot and canter and with a final score of 9.88 surpassing the record breaking 30-day test score of his sire Belissimo M.
