With his excellent conformation and spectacular movement, Donkey Boy immediately catches the eye. His career is just as exemplary. In 2015, he was premium stallion at the Danish stallion licensing and won his stallion performance test with 9.5 for walk and canter and 8.5 for trot. Overall, he received the final score of 889.5 points. The following year, he was Champion Stallion in the four-year-old class in Herning/DEN and won the Danish Young Horse Championships with a final score of 9.6.
Remarkably he defended this title the following year with exceptional scores: 10 for walk, canter and rideability and 9.0 for trot. Final score: 9.96. He also secured the bronze medal at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo/NED. In 2018, as a six-year-old, he was placed again at the World Championships, and then in 2019, as a seven-year-old, he won the silver medal. He also defended his title at the Danish Championships for six and seven-year-olds.
In 2020, he won competitions up to Inter I with scores of over 75 percent.
Hesselhøj Donkey Boy is a very modern and expressive stallion. These qualities also characterise his offspring, who are already successful in competitions, like Hesselhøj Downtown, who was the best four-year-old dressage horse in Denmark in 2020with a final score of 9.80. From his first crops of foals, he produced two licensed stallions.
Hesselhøj Donkey Boy comes from one of the best bloodlines in Denmark. His sire ERA Dancing Hit (out of Sumatra Hit, by Andro Hit, Champion Mare and mare performance test winner) was Champion Stallion and stallion performance test winner in Denmark in 2011 and won the gold breeding medal. After an accident in 2012, the stallion had to be put down.
The dam Søbakkehus Kamilja is the fifth elite mare in his pedigree and is herself successful up to advanced (S) level. Donkey Boy's half-sister Hesselhøj Donkeygirl (by Uno Don Diego) produced the licensed stallion Hesselhøj Skyfall (by Sir Donnerhall I).
The dam's sire Milan also won the gold medal as best three and four-year-old and went on to be highly successful at Grand Prix level.
