"A great moment" is how Christoph Hess, the commentator, described the presentation of Callaho’s Benicio in 2011 at the Bundeschampionat in the class for six-year old dressage horses, for which the judges actually awarded the dream score of 10.0 for his trot and walk, a 9.5 for overall impression and a 9.0 for his canter. With these results, the title could not be taken from the dark chestnut stallion. 

Later on, at his 30-day test in Schlieckau, Callaho’s Benicio even topped those results: There he received a 10.0 for his walk trot and canter. All in all, he received the highest possible score ten times. His weighted final score of 9.14 meant a clear victory. His final score with emphasis on dressage added up to 9.88 (predicted breeding value for dressage: 167 points) and with these results, Callaho’s Benicio even exceeded the record result of his sire, Belissimo M, when he took his test in Zweibrücken in 2002 with a final score of 9.63. 

After Callaho’s Benicio was licensed in 2007 in Verden he was sold to South Africa. His new owners sent him back to Germany in 2010 to be ridden by Anna-Sophie Fiebelkorn.

His dam, St.Pr.St. Valencia, placed in tests for young riding horses and won high prizes at the German Broodmare Show as well as the Ratje-Niebuhr Show. The dam line is also the origin of the Grand Prix dressage horses Magnus and Maestro as well as an advanced (S) level show jumper named Exot.
