Dakota, the 14 year old Grand Prix horse of Johan Rockx, has been sold to the USA. Johan Rockx himself bred this KWPN chestnut gelding by Wagenaar x Pandoer and trained him up to Grand Prix level.

Kimberly Carter from California, USA, is the new owner and will be showing the talent. Ms Carter already purchased Daydream in Holland with whom she's making a name at Prix St. Georges level. At the Pantano CDI the combination distinguised itself in a vast field of PSG riders by placing in the top five. 

Johan Rockx is the husband of the Canadian Penny Zavitz and the couple lives in Essen, Belgium, where they run a successful barn called La Fazenda. Penny recently retired her Grand Prix mount Winsome (Hannoverian by Windesi xx) and is now training the nine year old Heyu for the big tour. Johan and Dakota were a member of the Dutch B-frame in the dressage division.
