Ben Benicio was premium stallion of the Westphalian Stallion Licensing in 2015. The beautifully presented, long-legged, chestnut delighted the audience at his licensing with three basic gaits of the highest score rating. During his test he had an equally feather-light and powerful trot and canter with an exquisite step. In 2016 Ben Benicio was named winnner of his 14 day stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf by scoring a total of 8.43 points and he received 8.85 points for dressage and 7.60 for showjumping.
This enthusiasm continued when Ben Benicio convincingly won his dressage test in Adelheidsdorf with a final dressage score of 8.85. He was equally successful at his tournament debut under Stephanie Fiedler. He won three riding horse classes in four races, including the Westphalian Championship in Muenster-Handorf.
His father Callaho’s Benicio was Bundeschampion of 6 year old dressage horses and HLP winner with a dressage final score of 9.88. Ben Benicio is currently the series winner in dressage tests at St. George and Intermediare level under Jessica-Lynn Andersson.
The maternal line, which has been excellently rounded off in terms of performance thanks to Hochadel-Fidermark-Brentano II, has been highly esteemed for generations and has boasted many successful sport horses. Thus the grand dam brought the premium stallion Sir Fidergold and the S-dressage horse Sunshine into the pedigree.
