Winsome Adante is an English imported crossbred eventer (84.5% Thoroughbred, 9.5% Arabian, and 6% Irish) who has competed successfully to the highest levels of the sport of eventing. His rider, Kimberly Severson, has taken him to many well-known events, and he has won the Rolex CCI**** a record three times. He has also competed at the Burghley Horse Trials, as well as in the Olympics and the World Equestrian Games.

"Dan" was strong in all three phases. He usually won or placed among the top horses in the dressage, followed by a fast, clean cross-country run and a good show jumping round. He stood 16.1 hands (65 inches, 165 cm).

In November 2006, Dan rose to the top of the USEA Leader Board, ahead of retired Giltedge, with a total of 1,184 career points.

Dan was retired in November 2007 due to a hind limb lameness.
