Idocus was born in the Netherlands in 1990 and imported as a weanling. In 1991 he was shown in hand at the Dutch Keuring at Iron Spring Farm and received a first premium and placed 4th in the "Top Ten" yearlings.
He was raised at Royal Starr Farm in New York up until he was three years old. In 1993 Idocus went to the 100 day Stallion Performance Test. The testing site was in Keswick, Virginia, at November Hill Farm run by Gerd Zuther. He was the youngest and greenest stallion out of the 18 stallions that entered. He went on to become the Grand Champion and held the highest jumping score of all the stallions. At that time Idocus was accepted into the ISR/Oldenburg NA registry and was awarded a Lifetime Breeding License.
Idocus then went on to become the Grand Champion of show at the prestigious Dressage at Devon in September of 1994.
In October of 1994 Idocus was presented to the Dutch Jury at the NA/WPN inspections. He has the distinction of holding the highest score given in the North American Dutch Keurings - 99AA Scores: Walk 9, Trot 8.5, Canter 9.5, Jumping 9, Character 9
Idocus has been shown at every level of dressage and has won numerous championships at every level under the competent hands of 2X Olympian Lendon Gray. Idocus made his Grand Prix debut this year with Courtney King, Lendon`s assistant trainer. Courtney started working with Idocus under Lendons` watchful eye during the fall of 1999. Courtney took Idocus to the USDF Dressage Symposium in Maryland with Conrad Schumacher. Mr. Schumacher was duly impressed with the Courtney/Idocus combination. He was so impressed that he has invited Courtney and Idocus to Germany for the fall and winter show season.
