Delegada X is a P.R.E. (Pure Race Espagnole) mare from 2002 (Airoso XXVI, out of Lusitana). She won the gold medal for 7+ year old mares and was Championne de Concours des Chevaux Pure Race Espagnole in 2011. She was trained in Spanish School and traditional dressage. She has produced three filles.
“DeeDee”, as she is known to her friends and stable mates, has been with Bea since January 2014. Bea and DeeDee had been training together for two years when Bea was injured in 2016.
Delegada has played an exceptionally role in Bea’s recovery. With the help of many friends and staff, Bea was able to get back on DeeDee five months after the accident. They competed for the first time together at France’s Haras de Jardy near Paris in April 2017.
Delegada has since moved to Arroyo Del Mar near San Diego where Bea has been in physical rehab, and the two will continue to train with Shayna Simon while Bea is attending the University of San Diego starting in the Fall, 2018.
