As a 3-year old, Dakar passed his performance test beautifully. He received an 8.5 for his great scope and an 8 for self-carriage, canter, rideability, attitude and potential as jumping horse.

In Den Bosch they were champion of the KWPN Stallion Competition at 1.30m/1.35m level, at CSI Roosendaal Dakar ended 5th in the Youngster Tour and 7th in the final. In the 7-year old class in De Wolden last year, Dakar earned a 7th spot. In addition, Dakar jumped clear rounds in the 1.40m of CSI Lichtenvoorde, the 1.35m of CSI Wierden and the 1.35m of CSI Salland. When a 6-year old, Dakar was 2nd in the final of the Youngster Tour in Roosendaal and jumped clear rounds at CSI Asten and CSI De Wolden, finishing 9th in the final. As a 5-year old, Dakar jumped clear rounds at every locale of the KWPN Stallion Competition.
