Damon Hill was a premium stallion and performance test winner in 2002. Early in his career, he received high marks at the Bundeschampionate in 2003, was the bronze medalist at the 2004 Bundeschampionate, and in 2005 Damon Hill won the World Championship for the 5 year old Dressage Horses under Helen Langehanenberg who took over riding him from an injured Ingrid Klimke. His scores were: walk 9.2, trot 9.80, and canter 9.2. Damon Hill prolonged his reign in 2006 when he lived up to all expectations back under Ingrid herself. The stunning stallion with power and balance captured the 2006 World Breeding Championship for young dressage horses in Verden Germany again with scores in the 9.0’s. With his excellent character and great impression he wins the hearts of everyone he meets. Along with his "day job" as a Grand Prix dressage horse, he is also a breeding stallion in high demand. He captivates through his extraordinary ability, and convinces with his work ethic and desire to please.
Dami enjoys the days when he can do his dressage training outdoors on the hills and has a lot of fun with the gymnastic jumping. Ingrind Klimke commented that it has given her great pleasure to train such a talented horse. At the age of seven, he often won S-Dressage competitions and at eight years old, he finished second in the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal. At nine, he won many Grand Prix tests and was second at the Medien Cup Final in Munster at the Turnier der Sieger.
Damon Hill has lived up to all expectations, showing a lot of amplitude, power and balance, not to mention his ability to produce exceptional offspring such as the approved stallion and silver medalists of the 2011 World Championships for the 6 year old Dressage Horses, Damon Jerome H who also recently won the 2012 Nürnberger Burg-Pokal qualifier in Mannheim under Uta Gräf.
In addition to Damon Jerome H, Damon Hill was also the sire of the 2008 Westphalian Elite Mare show, Deprice (mv Frühlingsball), and he has sired many foals who have qualified for the Westphalian and German Foal Championships. One of the outstanding ones was the 2005 Reserve Westphalian Champion filly out of a Riokio mare. Damon Hill also sired the Champion RPSI colt, Cavalier.
