2012, Palomino, Australian Warmblood, 16.3hh, ACE Registered

We are very excited to have Diva at GrandView Sport Horses. Diva is by the outstanding cremello warmblood Daiquiri GF. Daiquiri has an impressive pedigree including Dream of Glory, Donnerhall, Lorenz, Ramzes, Persus in his bloodlines. He was awarded premium in Germany as a foal and has been approved premium as a stallion. Diva is a Sirocco granddaughter. Sirocco arrived as a two year old in Australia in October 2004, after a mammoth amount of research of hundreds of pedigrees and stallions. The pedigree and conformation of this exceptional young horse was like no other. On top of that he showed the most amazing movement and a temperament and character that was equally impressive. Twice in Diva's pedigree is the great Donnerhall. When a colt by Donnerwetter out of Ninette by Markus-Carnot was born at Otto Gärtner's stud farm in Wenstein, Holstein on the 30th of May 1981, no-one could have imagined that the dark chestnut who was later christened Donnerhall, would one day stage a triumphant march through the equestrian world like no stallion before him. What's more, no other stallion has ever come close to achieving what the chocolate coloured chestnut Donnerhall managed in such a convincing manner, namely, the symbiosis of the dual qualities of being a successful competition sports horse and on the other hand being a top grade breeding horse. It was undoubtedly an encounter determined by destiny, that Donnerhall grew up on the memorable Otto Schulte-Frohlinde's Grönwoldhof studfarm. On the occasion of the 1983 Oldenburg approval, the then still somewhat lean chestnut with the handsome blaze made a relatively unspectacular appearance. It did not take long however, until he had his first triumph. One year later, Donnerhall absolved his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf as vice-champion with a score of in excess of 130 points, exceeding all fellow contenders in the field of rideability, scoring 9.5. From that time onwards, Herbert and Karin Rehbein took over the training of Donnerhall, who proved to be a model student. Everything fitted together perfectly: Donnerhall's preparedness to perform, his rideability and first class basic gaits virtually predestined him for an international career in the dressage arena. In 1986 he was again in the limelight, becoming champion stallion of the DLG show in Hanover. His following appearance under Karin Rehbein, who danced through the arena with him remains unforgotten until this day. In next to no time, Donnerhall and Karin Rehbein established themselves in the upper echelons of the dressage sport, easily managing the jump into the difficult advanced class. This was followed by high placements and wins in Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and optional Grand Prix events. In 1994, Donnerhall had not only already gained an outstanding reputation for himself as an exceptional sire through his approved sons, highly decorated daughters and numerous competition sports horses, but also returned home from the World Championships in the Hague with team gold and individual bronze medals, which he secured for himself following a fascinating freestyle performance. Then at the 1997 European Championship in Verden, Karin Rehbein and Donnerhall once again belonged to the golden team and won an additional individual bronze medal. Donnerhall was awarded Oldenburger Stallion of the Year in 1997 and 1998. At the 1998 World Championships in Rome, Karin Rehbein and the meanwhile 17-year old stallion were once more part of the German gold medal team and gained an excellent fourth place in the individual rating. Sirocco had the type of the much favoured 'modern' looking stallion. The long legs, elegant head and neck, and sloping shoulder were all so consistent with his refined body, and to top it all off, he was black! Sirocco progeny is well known for their outstanding temperament and Diva is no exception to this! She has a pedigree of blue blood and at GrandView we intend to continue adding to that blue blooded pedigree.

Yalambi Fantazia

Yalambi Fantazia

2009, Bay mare, KWPN, 15.3hh, AWHA registered

GrandView is very excited to welcome this outstanding mare to our broodmare herd. Yalambi Fantazia has an absolute blue blooded jumping pedigree. Zia’s sire is Yalambi’s Val d’lsere VDL (imp) who is an approved KWPN stallion with an international showjumping level of 1.50m. He is imported and owned by Yalambi stud in Western Australia. See below the video of his GrandPrix Show jumping round with Rory Hovell riding in 2012. This lovely stallion now resides in Europe. Looking through Zia’s sire line pedigree her grand sire is VDL Atlantic. At the age of 6, VDL Atlantic won several important titles: Friesland Champion at Z level jumping, Dutch Champion Z level jumping and Champion of the Bundeschampionat for 6 year old jumping horses. At the age of 7, he became Reserve Champion at Z level jumping in the Levade. Atlantic also won and placed many times in international 1.40 classes. Now Atlantic jumps at the highest level and placed in the following Grand Prix: 6th in Drammen, 6th in Eindhoven, 2nd in Villach, 6th in Alençon, 2nd in Gera and 2nd in the Sires of the World in Lanaken, 5th in Bordeaux, 7th in World Cup in Vigo, 7th in Manheim, 7th in Cervia and 7th in Maastricht. Zia’s great grand sire, Acord II easily won his performance test in 1991, scoring 9.5 to 10 for showjumping, and 9 to 9.67 for rideability. His overall score was 146.04 scoring 138.26 in dressage and 148.47 in jumping. He went on to the 1992 Bundeschampionate in Verden ridden by Thomas Mohr, where he was reserve champion behind Franke Sloothaak and the Caletto I son, Calero. That year, five sons of the Zangersheide stallion, Ahorn Z (not to be confused with Weipke van der Lageweg’s Ahorn by Nimmerdor) qualified for the Bundeschampionate. Acord II followed in the distinguished footsteps of his older brother, Acord I, who was an international showjumper in The Netherlands before being sold to the USA. His younger brother, Acord III was the champion stallion in Brazil. Acord II continued to compete up to Advanced level for winnings of €4,026, however the 2014 Hanoverian Yearbook, records that his progeny have won over a two million euros, with 864 jumpers who have placed in competition, and 173 dressage horses. He has produced 27 jumpers with winnings in excess of €15,000, the most successful of which has been Artur, with the American rider, Aaron Vale, who won €90,459, followed by Annabell with €76,664 and Dobel’s Araconi, with €40,224 but he has five more with winnings in excess of €30,000: Acoretto, Adolfo FRH, Aladin, Armani, Azzuro Classico, Broere VDL Atlantic and Horse Gym’s Aribo. Acord II is a nice balance: the two stars of the Z book, Almé and Heureka, with the added bonus of Cor de la Bryère through Calypso I and the Thoroughbred Ladkykiller. Acord II is out of Ribecka, who was a champion mare in Holstein. Mandarin in the fourth line of her pedigree is out of Holle, who was also the grand-dam of Ramiro. Mandarin’s daughter Urbine is the grand-dam of the international jumper and supersire, Burggraaf. On the other side, the line travels to that hugely influential Thoroughbred, Ladykiller, through his son Lancaster, who also carried the blood of the Anglo Arab Ramzes, and was himself a showjumping competitor. Still on Zia’s sire line is the great Nimmendor, known as the KWPN Stallion of the Century 2000. This legendary bay stallion was out of the Dutch WB ster mare Ramona, which featured thoroughbred on her sire’s side (Koridon) and Dutch warmblood (grandsire Senator) on the dam’s side. Nimmerdor’s sire was the Holstein stallion Farn, an old-fashioned type, and when he was graded it was hoped he would improve upon the Dutch breed by siring good brood mare daughters. This he clearly did, but only when he was given lighter mares did it became evident that he was also capable of producing excellent show jumpers amongst his offspring. Farn, and therefore Nimmerdor, traced his ancestry to Achil – founder of the Holstein breed. Nowadays of course, it is indisputable the tremendous influence Farn himself had upon Dutch breeding and several years after his death he was finally declared ‘preferant’ – the highest possible award for stallion recognition. Farn is known for his descendants in International Showjumping such as Odin N., Black and White, Design and Olympus, and has thirteen approved sons – Nimmerdor however remains his most famous son of all. Nimmerdor was foaled in 1972 by Mr.Dijkstar of Woudend and was bought as a two and a half-year-old at a stallion show by Wiepke van de Lagewag. He was not approved at the time, nor was he vetted before purchase, but Wiepke felt confident enough in the stallion to part with the sum of 25,000 guilders. ‘He had something very special about him,’ said Mr.Wiepke van de lagewag. Wiepke originally started breeding only as a hobby in 1972, but perhaps realised upon seeing Nimmerdor that here was the stallion to take his venture on to a more serious level? Whatever the reason, with the purchase of Nimmerdor the VDL Stud was undoubtedly born. When Nimmerdor was performance tested, he clearly excelled at jumping and so began his steady progression onto the world of International Showjumping. Ridden by Albert Vroom, he successfully competed in many World Cups and International Competitions, and he was accordingly invited to the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. Feeling however that the stallion needed to concentrate upon breeding duties, Wiepke declined the invitation. Wiepke certainly knew what he was doing, for Nimmerdor’s progeny have since proven themselves many times the world over. On the dam side of Zia’s pedigree is some equally impressive with blue blooded excellence in her pedigree. Quite Easy is top Grand Prix competition stallion. He has been successful in sport up to 1.60 meters, and was 2nd in Sweden's outdoor championships and the winner of the Swedish seven and eight year old championships. His tremendous scope and careful technique have made him extremely successful in sport. His pedigree unites the brilliant talent of his sire Quidam de Revel, with the reliable athleticism of Germany's Landgraf and Capitano, lending the blood influence of Ladykiller xx, Ramzes, and Cottage Son xx. Quidam de Revel helped win the team bronze medal for France in the 1992 Olympics and placed fourth individually. That year he was ranked as the number one show jumping stallion in the world. He was sold to Denmark in 1993 and continues to win many international Grand Prix's in show jumping under Thomas Velin. Quidam de Revel is a stallion of legendary status, with many internationally successful offspring, including Tlaloc M, Diabolo du Parc, Gandini Bianca, El Campeons Cirka Z, Eve des Etisses, and Nabab de Reve. Quite Easy's dam Birte II is by the also-legendary Landgraf I, out of the full-sister to the stallions Capitol I, II, and III. Birte II is also the dam of Quite Easy II and Casir Ask, a successful Grand Prix jumper. Birte II's damsire Landgraf I is one of the world's most renowned sires for producing successful show jumpers. Quite Easy is by the legendary, Quidam de Revel who passed away in 2014, and will be remembered not only as a world class Nations Cup and Olympic jumper, but as a prolific elite sire as well. Under Herve Godignon, Quidam de Revel won the 1990 Nations Cup in New York as well as the Grand Prixs in New York and Dortmund. The eight year old stallion won over one million Francs that year. In 1991, Quidam and Herve not only were team fourth and individually sixth at the European Championships in La Baule, they also won the Nations Cup in Hickstead, were second in Rotterdam, seventh in Calgary, and were fifth in the World Cup finals in Gothenburg, Sweden. Representing France, Herve and Quidam de Revel helped secure the team bronze at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games and were fourth individually. That same year, they won the Nation Cups of Rome and Dinard as well as the Grand Prix of Rome. In 1993, Quidam was sold to the Velin family of Denmark. Under Charlotte Velin, he won the Scandanavian Young Riders championships, and after her brother Thomas took over the reins, Quidam was 4th in the 1993 Grand Prix of Oslo, seventh in the Millstreet World Cup qualification, and 3rd in the stallion class in Mechelen as well as the Danish derby. In 1995, Quidam and Thomas went on to 3rd in the Grand Prix of Neumuenster and placed in the Volvo World Cup, the Masters in Zurich, the Munich Grand Prix, the Swedish derby in Falsterbo, as well as the CSI-As in Spangenberg and Valkenswaard. After more placings at Grand Prix, Thomas and Quidam were fourth at the 1996 Young Rider European championships, and in 1997, they went on to win the Grand Prix of Hanover and were fifth in the Helskinki World Cup qualification. They also placed in the World Cup qualification in Paris and the Volvo World Cup finals in Gothenburg. In 2001, Quidam de Revel was retired from his illustrious competitive career at the amazing age of 19 and was able to focus on being a legendary sire. Zia’s Grand dam (on the dam side) is an imported the imported mare Uklahoma who, herself jumped World Cup and has arguably the best mother line in Germany. See video below of Uklahoma competing in the SA State Young Riders Champs – Round 2 in 2010. Uklahoma is by Hold Up Premier who is France’s most important stallion at the present time, Narcos II and Quidam de Revel, are the sire and the grand-sire of Hold up Premier. They jumped internationally and are guaranteed producers with many top offspring like: Twist du Valon, Vikking du Tillard, Valeska For Ever, Quinar and Cirka Z. In the third generation, we find the required thoroughbred, Monceaux xx, and in the fourth generation the Anglo, Sedukteur xx. His dam, Belle Little, received a very good maternal report. She also produced the full sister of Hold up Premier, Free of Tax. She won the pre-finals during the World Championship of Lanaken in 1998. His grand-m, Electre II, has a very high ISO of 177 and was a very famous jumping mare in her time who won several Grand Prixd and Nations Cup classes. After her sport career, she produced the approved stallions Flushing and Urbain du Mannai (ISO 167), who also jumped internationally. Hold up Premier placed at the ages of 4, 5, 6 and 7 in the finals of the Stallion Competitions and in the Dutch Championship. At the ages of 5 and 7, he jumped himself into the finals of the World Championship. In addition, nationally and internationally he placed highly, 8th in the Derby of La Baule and 5th in a 1.40 and 1.45 class, 8th in the Derby of Valkenswaard, 4th in a 1.50 class at Outdoor Gelderland, 2nd in a 1.45 in Redefin, 1st place twice at show in Meise, 3rd in Grand Prix Mierlo and he won two 1.40 classes at Maubeuge. Zia herself has been under saddle and had a couple of shows to her name with Rory Hovell in the saddle…jumping both 90cm and 105cm. She proved to be very careful over fences, however with a huge team of young horses and being that little bit smaller, it was decided to put Zia in foal as time wasn’t allowing her to continue competing. We are super, super excited to have Zia join our broodmare herd and have some absolutely outstanding matches in mind for her to produce some sensational foals for the future jumping market….and obviously with a touch of colour…!

Buckskin warmblood filly Born 8th October 2014.

Mature approx. 16.2. ACE registered. Ronnie is a gorgeous filly who has a look at me presence about her. She has the lovely cruisey and curious nature of his dam, together with an impressive lineage that will be sure to make her an outstanding eventer or show jumping prospect! Ronnie's dam line through Lachlan Lad on the sire side has the outstanding World Cup showjumper, campaigned by Gavin Chester, Stirling Liberty. Stirling liberty was an important stallion and was the sire of two grand prix dressage horses - Snowy River Blackwood and Redwood. Stirling Liberty’s sire is the great Ludendorf, who really needs no introduction. Ludendorf (Imp/Dec) (Luciano/Waidmannshiel/More Magic xx ) was imported to Australia in 1984 and stems from the German 'L' line through Lukas, Lugano I and Der Löwe (Wahnfried/Herold xx/Fervor xx). Before exportation from Germany, his first and only German foal crop had two licensed sons. On arrival to Australia, he was campaigned by Heath Ryan at advanced level One Day Events and up to grand prix level dressage. Ludendorf's sire, Luciano (Lukas/Eindruck II/Feldmarschall), was known for producing highly talented performance horses in both dressage and show jumping. Lachlan Lad’s great grand dam Faleten, produced at least five stallion sons; Stirling Liberty (Ludendorf/Falkland/Monopol) is out of Faleten and is a full brother to horses such as Stirling Luther (FEI dressage stallion with Dirk Dijkstra), Stirling Lukas (advanced eventer), Stirling Luftmann (FEI dressage stallion exported to Thailand) and Stirling Lilac. Faleten (Falkland/Monopol/X) is possibly the most decorated Australian Warmblood broodmare of her time. Ronnie is by the gorgeous perlino Akhal Teke, Kambarbay (IFS). Akhal Tekes are well known for their endurance, agility and intelligence. Kambarbay is no exception to this. He has been in training as an eventer in the UK and is proving to be brave and talented. Kambarbay is putting his stamp on all of his foals in that they are all refined and beautiful foals, with the added bonus of super bling and a gorgeous golden coat. The Akhal Teke is considered to be the oldest of modern domesticated equine breeds in existence today who's ancestors trace back to over 3000 years. The breed as it is known today, first appeared in Turkmenistan, Central Asia, in the desert of Kara Kum, a rocky, flat desert surrounded by mountains which played a significant role in preserving it's purity. Tribesmen of Turkmenistan first used the horses for raiding and were selectively bred for speed and agility. Pedigree records were maintained by Turkmen tribesmen via oral tradition. Historical records show that the Akhal-Teke has had influence on many breeds through trade and war, with stallions often gifted to Heads of State and other influential figures in foreign lands. It is thought that the Thoroughbred stallion Byerly Turk one of the three foundation thoroughbred stallions of the breed, may have been an Akhal-Teke or Turkoman Horse. With these performance greats in her bloodlines GrandView Koffee Klub certainly has the headstart to a great and enviable career.

Black Silver Warmblood filly

Born 6th November 2016

WOW is all that can be said about this young mare…just WOW…! She is the only black silver warmblood in Australia. If you have ever imagined yourself stopping a crowd in a dressage test then to ride down the centre line to A on this horse will certainly have the crowd breathless and the judges speechless…! Just look at the pedigree of this filly…it has all the hard hitting dressage greats in its bloodlines. In Horizon’s pedigree he has some outstanding lineage through his sire Amoureux including Krack C, Ferro, Ramiro Z and Dominard. Horizon’s sire, Amoureux himself is with a pedigree of legendary ancestry who has consistently achieved excellent results in dressage. Expressive, head turning, with that “look at me factor”, modern and long legged he possesses three equally good paces, a ground covering walk, elasticity and suppleness in his trot with expressive use of the front leg in all three paces. His canter is excellent with above average length of stride, uphill cadence and good self carriage. Amoureux is a consistent winner with high scores and has now made his debut at Advanced level dressage. Krack C, Anky Van Grunsven’s esteemed dresage partner, is one of the most respected sires of dressage excellence in Europe. Krack C’s sire, Flemmingh, is the sire of many other outstanding dressage stars, including Edward Gal’s top horse Lingh. Over a period of of thirty years, the “Preferent” G Ramiro Z’s performance as a sporthorse and breeding sire has clearly earned him the well deserved titles ‘Stallion of the Century’ and “King of Sires.” Bred in Holstein, born in Westfalia, licensed at Neumünster, Ramiro Z was an international performer under Fritz Ligges, a stallion that has had a far reaching influence on the greatest acheiving sports horses of today. Ramiro was one of the first Holstein stallions to actually appear in competition unlike many others of that era. During his own sporting career he had numerous wins at all levels of show jumping including Nations Cups, Puissance (jumping over 2.2 metre) and in international Grand Prix competition. Olympic Ferro, the Dutch sensation at Aachen, competed at the 2000 Olympics and assisted his team in achieving a team silver medal, with an individual score of 74.92%. As a three-year-old he was champion of his performance test at Ermelo, where he achieved the outstanding results of 6.5–step, 8.5–trot and 8.5 gallop. His sire Ulft, is a son of the great Le Mexico, who is listed 10th on the jumping index with 142 points. Dominard, bred by Paul Schockemoehle, was sired by is a son of the famous Domino, who brought forth a number of excellent jumping horses, such as 1989 German equestrian championship finalists Mannheim Dream Valley (second) and PS Dynastar (1e). Halo’s dam line is just as impressive. Her dam is by Furstenball (IFS) which includes some hard hitting dressage greats such as Furst Heinrich/Florestan and a double cross of Donnerhall. Furstenball is the current Bundeschampion of Five Year-Old Dressage Horses. Licensing and stallion performance test winner – a unique stallion. Fürstenball represents pure fascination. At a maximum of lightness and elasticity he embodies the modern dressage horse. Milestones already line his still young career: After selling for a record price of 110,000 Euro as auction foal, being celebrated licensing winnner in 2008 and stallion performance test winner with sensational dressage index scoring 154,98 points – 9.0 or higher a total of 16 times and a perfect 10.0 for rideability – he became Bundeschampion of five year-old dressage horses in 2011. He received a top 9.5 for trot and overall impression, 10.0 for walk, 9.0 each for canter and submissiveness and won finally the championship with a score of 9.4. Prior to this, he became Oldenburg Regional Champion with 9.1. Vancouver II was imported from Sweden and was extremely successful at Grand Prix dressage level. This filly has a blue blooded pedigree with the added bonus that she is a black silver. We truly have some exciting things planned for this filly….firstly a foal and then a saddle career….so watch this space..!

Palomino Warmblood filly

Born 23rd October 2016

To say this filly is exciting is the absolute understatement….! “A great moment” is how Christoph Hess, the commentator, described the presentation of Callaho’s Benicio in 2011 at the Bundeschampionat in the class for six-year old dressage horses, for which the judges actually awarded the dream score of 10.0 for his trot and walk, a 9.5 for overall impression and a 9.0 for his canter. With these results, the title could not be taken from the dark chestnut stallion. Later on, at his 30-day test in Schlieckau, Callaho’s Benicio even topped those results: There he received a 10.0 for his walk trot and canter. All in all, he received the highest possible score ten times. His weighted final score of 9.14 meant a clear victory. His final score with emphasis on dressage added up to 9.88 (predicted breeding value for dressage: 167 points) and with these results, Callaho’s Benicio even exceeded the record result of his sire, Belissimo M, when he took his test in Zweibrücken in 2002 with a final score of 9.63. Diva is no slouch herself with Donnerhall, Flaneur and Sirocco in her bloodlines. This mare is super quiet, with an exceptional unphased temperament about anything. This young mare has super presence and super bling…a sure showstopper in the dressage arena. We have huge plans for the future of this filly and are hoping to see her dancing at DWTS in the coming years…!

Palomino Warmblood filly

Born 11th November 2016

This filly is very special. She has a real look at me presence, together with simply outstanding movement. She will excel at any of the Olympic disciplines with her blue blooded pedigree…but should be seriously considered as a jumping or eventing prospect. Chia is going to be a big horse, estimating 16.2-16.3hh. Unfortunately due to a paddock accident as a weanling she will be unsuitable for riding but is a very valuable broodmare. Her sire, Crown’s Ace of Pearl has everything you could ask for in a stallion: handsome looks, excellent breeding lines, athletic scopey ability, fabulous temperament, great teach ability & outstanding conformation. Ace is by Crown’s Blue Pearl an approved Cremello warnblood stallion born 2001 currently jumping 1.40 in Denmark. Ace’s Dam line includes Denmark’s legendary A-Dur whose international jumping career included amongst other things winning a silver at CSIO Nations cup in Bratislava in 1998 aand a gold in Falsterbo, Sweden in 2000. A-Dur not only proved to be an excellent show jumper he also became an Elite Stallion for the long list of talented horses he sired including the very successful danish warmblood mare Andante who has won two World Cup Qualifiers with Tina Lund for Denmark. A-Dur is by the legendary Argentinus 2005 Hanoverian Stallion of the year, who led the FN statistics fpr his age group for the sum of prize money earned by his off spring for an astounding seven years! Chia’s dam, Makaroff Grigorieva is a lovely tempered mare who has the privilege of having impeccable jump breeding with an impressive list of super sires in her lineage, including Grannus II (double cross), Daktylus, Aachen and Argentinus. Ava is by Makaroff Gordost and has a double cross of Grannus II in her bloodlines. Imported to Australia in 1986, Grannus II left his mark on Australian breeding producing Grand Prix dressage and jumping horses. Grannus II’s sire Grannus produced seven Olympic horses and more than 60 approved stallions, have made him one of the greatest sires in the world. Ava’s great grandsire on Gordost’s dam line is the great Daktylus who was bred and raised by Holger & Melanie Schmorl. Even by today’s standards he would represent what breeders want to achieve – a ‘typey’ and attractive horse, the result of careful infusion of outside genes, such as the Thorougbred and Selle Francais without compromising the tradition and principles of German Warmblood breeding. With his lightness and near unlimited jumping-ability this stallion was twenty years ahead of his time. Daktylus’ life was cut short by a mysterious illness. However, he left a legacy of successful competition horses and three licensed stallions – Destiny, Domingo (Australian winner in dressage and eventing), the Grand Prix and World Cup showjumper, Kinnordy D’Artagnan and Daley K (most successful showjumper and sire of many winning competition horses in all disciplines and valuable broodmares who have winning progeny in all disciplines. On Ava’s damline is another blue ribbon of bloodlines. Her grandsire being Aachen, was born 02 April 1984 and was from Argentinus’ first foal crop. He was bred by Theodor Schöning of Lindern-Vahren, Germany. Aachen achieved high jumping marks in his Stallion Performance Test (HLP) (3/45) with 138.19 points at Adelheidsdorf, Germany in 1987. He finished eleventh overall with a total of 118.64 points (11/45). He was imported to Australia from West Germany in March, 1988 and exported back to Germany in 1992. Aachen stood at Belcam-Klatte Farm with Ulrich Klatte, Whilst in Australia, he won up to elementary dressage and was reserve champion novice horse at the New South Wales championships at the age of four. Upon return to Germany, Aachen was sold to the international show jumper Holger Wulschner from Mecklenburg, Germany. In 1995, Holger Wulschner and Aachen took eighth place at the German Championships, won many advanced level jumping tests and even placed up front in puissance. In 1996 they also placed at CHIO in Aachen, Germany. After his career in international jumping, Aachen participated in dressage with Holger Wulschner’s wife, Iris Wulschner. Azarro’s son, Astello (Azarro x Distello x Domschatz), won the 1997 approval in Mecklenburg and a year later he participated in the Bundeschampionat for riding horses. Ava’s great Grand Sire is none other than the legendary Argentinus, born 15 February 1980. He was bred by Jacob Büther, Hollern, Germany and was sold as a weanling to Jan Munderloh. Heinrich Klatte senior discovered Argentinus during the pre-selections for Oldenburg approval. At the Oldenburg approval, the Waldlöwe son, Waldstern, became Champions Stallion and Argentinus received 1b Premium. Argentinus moved to Zuchthof Klatte in Klein Roscharden, Lastrup, Germany as a two and a half year old post pre-selections and stood there till his death in 2007, aged twenty seven. In 1983 at his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf, Germany, Argentinus placed third (3/54) with a score of 126 points and was licensed in Verden the same year. In 1984 he was awarded 1a Main Premium on account of his excellent offspring. Ava has movement that takes your breath away….she appears to just “glide” across the paddock with no effort at all. This impressive movement she passes onto her foals, and Chia is no exception. This filly is outstanding..!

Bay Tobiano Warmblood filly

Born 3rd December 2016

Stella cant help but be noticed in the competition arena…! She is predominantly dressage bred, however she should also be considered as an eventing prospect as she has some good jump lineage through her dam’s sire. Sunny Boy, the first approved son by the former World and National Champion, Sandro Hit, is following his sire’s footsteps in the breeding world. A stunningly beautiful type, Sunny Boy is direct half-brother to Classico (Sport name Capuccino 16), ridden by Karin Rehbein and already winning at Grand Prix level and is a descendant of one of the most successful mare lineages in German breeding. His dam Fantastica is full-sister to champion producer Don Schufro (unbeatable since 2001) and has identical bloodlines with Don Primero. The graceful movement, the uphill jumping canter and the calmly performed walk combined with top jumping qualities make him extremely coveted and valuable. Sunny Boy won his 30 day test with a score of 8.9 in Vechta. He confidently qualified for the 2003 National Young Horse Championships and went on to win the small final for six year old dressage horses. He continues on the road to success; last year winning “M/A” dressage competitions and achieving high placings at “S” level. Sunny Boy already belongs to the top five stallions in the breeding ratings of young stallions on the national squad. GrandView Sass N Bide (Sassy) is by the stunning black & white pinto SOS (Imp Germany). SOS is by Semper who is the leading pinto in Europe today, and includes the great Samber and Sandro in his bloodlines. SOS also has Prinz Oldenburg in his dam line, who is one of Europer’s finest showjumping sires. Sassy’s dam has impressive dressage lineage including the acclaimed Winterkoenig and Kilof McOhl. Stella has just spent her first 2 weeks at the breakers…and the breaker is in love….Stella has proven to be super smart, willing and very trainable. This filly cannot help but impress in whatever discipline is chosen for her.
