DJ - WonderStrike
Rising 10 year old TB x Hanoverian. Sire WonderKind (Wohler II), Dam Salema (Strike Diamonds).

DJ has mostly evented, stepping up to 3* last season. He has won and placed consistently throughout his career especially prior to lockdown disruptions. He is generally fault free XC with a brilliant gallop. An impressive horse in every phase and very consistent at 2*.

Competed level 3 dressage (elementary) and training level 5 with wins at 3* and level 3, scores always expected around 70%. Very correct on the flat with amazing presence. Lateral work including counter change half pass, rein back, walk pirouettes, mediums, canter walk canter, canter halt, you name it! Changes are there but not yet 100%.

He’s also show jumped 1.20m and placed in many classes up the grades. Up to 1.15m is the easy height for him where he should consistently jump well, there’s no reason he can’t go higher. He never ever stops and doesn’t spook at decorations or flags.

Temperament wise he cannot be faulted. He is an absolute clown, the life of the yard with so much personality. Easy to have around and take away from home. He loves the beach, forest, any adventure and does all of it on the buckle. He has been in a TV series and on a TVC, even carrying actors and not requiring a doubling horse which is a true testament to his nature. Film equipment, cameras, sound booms, screens, crew, none of it worries him.

He’s the ideal horse for someone to have the best time on. Junior rider/ young rider eventing, junior rider/ amateur show jumping, FEI YR dressage – or all of them! I see him being a perfect schoolmaster for someone wanting to be successful while staying safe and having fun. Really the whole package.

A gorgeous horse I have had the pleasure of learning from the past almost 6 years. I purchased him as a rising 4 year old, and as he comes up 10 it’s time to see someone benefit from all the work we’ve done. A horse that puts a smile on your face every single day and he will be incredibly missed.
