Gestut Sprehe has sold its 7-year old Hanoverian stallion Cap Amour to Korean Olympian Dong Seon Kim.

Cap Amour is by Christ out of Delicia (by De Niro x Pik Bube II). He is bred by Egon Schröder and was owned by Gestut Sprehe.

Cap Amour was licensed with the Mecklenburger society but not listed on Sprehe's stallion roster.

The horse was first started in 2015 by Heike Klausing but then moved in training with Sabine Rüben's team.  In 2017 he was shown by Judit Sarda at four shows, one was the Bundeschampionate qualifier in Neu-Anspach, which he won, but he did not compete at the Bundeschampionate in Warendorf.

In the spring of 2019 Australian Simone Pearce took over the ride and competed the horse at the CDI Achleiten after which they were selected to represent Australia at the 2019 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo, The Netherlands. They finished 18th in the preliminary round and 9th in the consolation finals with 73.893%.

Cap Amour sold to Dong Seon Kim and the horse has arrived in Seoul, where Kim is based. He recently moved back home from his German base St. Ludwig in Wegberg, which is now for sale.

"My plan is to ride him in Korea and train for the 2022 Asian Games," Kim told Eurodressage.
