Abdel Said’s ride Dakota (Cento Lano x Intermezzo) has been sold to the US. The eleven-year-old mare has been with the Egyptian rider since the beginning of 2014 when the horse was purchased from Stal Eurocommerce. Said has achieved some very good results with the small mare which he has competed up to 5* level.

Said says to World of Showjumping that “It is with a bit mixed feelings I have decided to sell Dakota. It is a little step back as she was a good horse for me, but in the long run I believe it will be a good thing as I can invest more in my younger horses. I currently have a couple of very talented 8-year-olds I believe very much in and I will now focus on bringing them up to top level. Dakota is such a fighter, and I believe that she will get a very good life in America with a nice rider. I must also compliment Ilan Ferder and Tal Milstein who contributed to making this deal possible in a very correct way.“
