Wellington, Florida, USA – January 19, 2021 – Daniel Bluman (ISR) has confirmed that Alamo is going back to the stables of Gerardo Pasquel Mendez (MEX). The horse, owned by Patricio Pasquel Quintana (MEX), was originally ridden by Francisco Pasquel (MEX) and later on by Gerardo Pasquel Mendez (MEX). However, it was under the saddle of Steve Guerdat (SUI) that the handsome gelding became famous. The 13-year-old Royal Dutch Sport Horse (Ducth Warmblood) gelding (Ukato x Equador) was very successful with the Swiss superstar. Besides participation in FEI Jumping World Cup classes, the dynamic duo were victorious at the highest level of the sport, highlighted by a crowning moment in the $500,000 Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final at CHI Geneva 5*, where they claimed first place.
After more than two successful years with the Swiss, the black gelding had gone back to Gerardo Pasquel Mendez (MEX), staying with him for less before joining Daniel Bluman (ISR) at Over the Top Stables in September of 2020 until the present.
