“What an amazing performance,” the judges praised Escamillo's performance in the World Championship final for seven-year-old dressage horses in their commentary, “we love this horse and see a very big future in him.” Once again, Escamillo received dream scores at this prestigious meeting of the world's best young dressage horses. 9.5 for trot and perspective, 9.0 for walk and canter, 8.5 for submission - and a fantastic 91 percent and the bronze medal. The year before, Escamillo, ridden by the Spanish rider Manuel Dominguez Bernal, who rides for Helen Langehanenberg's yard, had already received scores of 9.0 and higher in the World Championship’s arena, earning him the silver medal in the six-year-olds class.
Breeding-wise Escamillo also puts one exclamation mark after the next behind his hereditary power. He has already produced over 30 licensed stallions, among them the Neustadt Champion Stallion Element of Crime, the Hanoverian Premium Stallion and 700,000-euro Stallion Market top price Energy, the Westphalian Reserve Champion Stallions Escaneno, Espléndido MT and Excalibur as well as our stallions Escanto PS, two-time stallion performance test record winner, Expectation PS and Escamour, the stallion performance test winner Eleven HW and the bronze medallist of the Hanoverian Championships, Estupendo. The German and Westphalian Champion Eivissa ridden by Jessica Lynn Thomas/SWE stands out amongst his first sport offspring. She received a 10 for both trot and canter and a 9.5 for rideability and conformation in Warendorf. Embolo, third in the “Westfalen-Wappen” class at the “Turnier der Sieger”, achieved the sensational knockdown price of 590,000 euros, the highest price ever achieved by a riding horse at a Westphalian auction. Eyecatcher W won the Austrian Warmblood Championships for three-year-olds in Stadl-Paura/AUT. Escamillo’s daughter, Exclusive, won the Herwart van der Decken Show in Verden.
Escamillo began his career as premium stallion at his licensing in 2017 in Verden, passed his 14-day test in 2018 with a dressage score of 9.08 and completed his sport test in 2020 with Helen Langehanenberg with a winning score of 9.36. Ridden by the Olympic team silver medallist, he also qualified for the German Championships for young dressage horses as a five-year-old with 9.5. In 2021, with Manuel Dominguez Bernal, he won the intermediate (M) level dressage test for young horses in Haftenkamp with a score of 8.8 (also qualifier for the German Championships for six-year-olds). The same year, Escamillo was awarded the Weltmeyer Prize by the Hanoverian Association.
His sire, the Westphalian and double German Champion Escolar, was placed in the final of the Burg Cup, the final of the Louisdor Prize and at the German Championships with the Olympic Champion and riding master Hubertus Schmidt/GER. They were part of the German Olympic squad.

His grand-dam Chantal is the full sister of Dumont/Juliane Brunkhorst/GER and Hartwig Burfeind/GER, licensed stallion and successful in Grand Prix, and her half brother Aquavit (by Argentinus) is successful in competitions for young show jumping horses.
