The 2019 World Cup Champion Alamo returns to Mexico to continue to be ridden by his owner Gerardo Pasquel Mendez. Alamo has since September 2020 been competed internationally by Daniel Bluman, who has picked up top-three finishes at 1.50m level with the now 13-year-old gelding.

Alamo is best known as Steve Guerdat’s partner. Together, the two won the 2018 Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final in Geneva and in 2019 they went to the top in the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Final in Gothenburg. The pair also won five-star Grand Prix classes in Helsinki and Waregem during their time together. At the beginning of 2020, Guerdat and Alamo parted ways when the gelding returned to Pasquel Mendez who competed him in Mexico and the US. In September 2020, Bluman took over the reins. 

“Working with Alamo has been an amazing experience,” Bluman comments to World of Showjumping. “I am used to produce the horses I’ve competed internationally so taking Alamo into my program was a new learning experience for myself and our team. Alamo was a total pleasure to work with. He has a wonderful disposition to work and learn and in the ring he wants always to perform. Riding a champion like him that was produced by another great champion, has been a real honour. I enjoyed every moment I spent with Alamo and surely will miss him very much.”
