Grand Prix Champion Comes to Maryland

Amicelli, the 17.2h Holsteiner Chestnut gelding from Canada arrived in Clarksburg MD in mid December 2011 to join TeamStrawson. Amicelli’s breeding is from Amigo xx out of Thea by Calypso 3, and was imported from the Holsteiner Elite Auction as a young horse. He has had a stellar career as a Grand Prix competitor throughout Canada and the United States since his debut in 2005, from his Ontario Grand Prix Reserve Championship in 2006, to his second place standing in the 2010 Grand Prix at Dressage at Devon (4th in the Grand Prix Special).

During the 2007-2008 season, Amicelli successfully competed at the Grand Prix level internationally throughout North American CDIs. In 2008, he placed first in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle at the Blainville CDI, plus was the double top four finisher in the Wellington FL CDI, and top five finisher at the Dressage at Devon Grand Prix CDI. In 2009, Amicelli was invited to compete at the World Masters CDI 5* in Wellington FL. That year, he was also short-listed for the Canadian Team (2008 & 2009), and received the Dressage Canada Red Scarf Athlete of the month for April 2009.

Amicelli is currently owned by Barbara Strawson and Jennifer Foulon. Barbara and everyone at TeamStrawson is excited to have such a well-rounded champion in their midst, and are looking forward to a bright future as the Strawson-Amicelli duo hit the competitive trail for 2012.
