Lovely young bay and white pinto mare who is by the exciting Polish pinto warmblood show jumping stallion Balaton (now gelded) out of a B grade showjumping thoroughbred mare. Baci is an exceptionally intelligent mare who has outstanding movement. We are excited to have her with our breeding program as she has no Samber or Ico in her bloodlines, and together with the refinement of her thoroughbred blood we are very much looking forward to some beautiful pinto performance foals from her.

2000, Palomino, Australian Warmblood, 15.3hh, AWHA Registered

Wicca is a Weltmeyer granddaughter on her sire side. Weltmeyer is quite simply a legend and continues to almost single-handedly reshape the Hanoverian breed. As of today, Weltmeyer has produced 70 licensed sons, all of them are excellent stallions. When it comes to capacity for dressage and the temperament necessary for a top competitor, this stallion simply cannot be beaten. In 2005, Weltmeyer received a Breeding Value Index of 152 points, with an assurance of 99% heritability, from the German Equestrian Federation. Wicca also has Koenigsburg and Copernicus (also known as Coktail) in her dam line on her sire side. COKTAIL is the sire of MARTINI, the leading Trakehner sire in USDF qualifiers in 1991, and standing first or second on the USDF Leading Sire List from 1994 to 2001. Coktail is the grandsire of Peron, 1996 Olympic Bronze Medallist in dressage. Coktail is also the sire of Domhardt, an Advanced National Dressage Champion in Australia with owner Libby Lang Coktail is by Habicht and is described by the German Trakehner Hengstbuch as being one of the most important sires of his time. After an extremely successful international eventing career under Martin Plewa, Habicht went on to sire 13 approved stallions and numerous top competition horses. His son, Sixtus is one of the youngest elite stallions in Germany, and another son, Windfall, is rising to fame in eventing with his rider Ingrid Klimke. Habicht was known for reliably passing on his extraordinary jumping talent and impressive movement to his offspring. On Wicca’s dam side is the impressive Swedish warmblood Du. Du was imported to Australia by Lesley-Anne Taylor. Du is also the sire of the Grand Prix stallion, Dusseldorf. Wicca is a performed mare, having been ridden and competed successfully in dressage and eventing by a junior. She has represented Queensland on several occasions in the Interschool games before being retired due to injury. Wicca has an outstanding temperament and together with her excellent bloodlines and her beautiful golden coat, we are hoping to breed some outstanding foals to her in the near future.

Lily Jumping

2007, Bay, Hanoverian, 15.2hh, Registered Hanoverian

Lily has a look at me presence that captures your imagination! She is a pretty and talented mare that has personality and movement to burn! Lily has been successfully performed in both hacking and show jumping. Some of her performances include: Top 8 finalist Newcomer Adelaide Royal 2013 Top 10 finalist Grand National Qualifying Show 2013 Champion Small Hack Waikerie Show 2013 Lily has also successfully show jumped to 1.05m and also finished 4th in the Mallala Winter Series 2013. Fishermans Friend is a noble and big-framed stallion with a very well formed neckline. Type and expression, combined with 3 sensational paces, are the main characteristics of this well-shaped, elegant stallion. In the stallion performance test he excelled with a total of 124.08 points and attracted everybody's attention by his floating movements and his high rideability. His dam completed her mare performance test with high results in rideability and jumping ability, and the sire of Fisherman's Friend, Fabriano, is regarded as one of the best stallions in the current Hanoverian breed. The offspring of Fabriano convince by very high rideability, above average jumping talent and very good basic gaits. Pik Solo is a personality of a horse with a well reknowned and established pedigree. He has an excellent dressage breeding value of 145.0. His sire is the top dressage stallion Pik Bube I, who was competed at Grand Prix dressage by Herbert Rehbein, after completing his performance test as Vice Champion in 1976. He possessed flowing movements, lots of presence, and a tremendous capacity to learn. His breeding values are 158 for dressage and 127 for showumping. Fishermans Friend certainly had the genetics to be a supersire! Fishermans Friend was imported to Australia from Germany in 2005 where he had been the Leader of the Celle State Stud Stallion Dressage Quadrille in 2004 and 2005. He had never competed prior to his arrival in Australia, which shows the amazing trainability of this beautiful stallion. Since commencing his dressage career in Australia he has been nothing but sensational. He was Australian Medium Dressage Champion in 2006, Australian Advanced Dressage Champion in 2007, and Australian Prix St George Dressage Champion in 2008. What an amazing feat!!! Prince Noir is a beautiful black stallion has it all – breeding, performance, elegance, temperament. His sire, the recently deceased Prince Thatch, has produced many successful dressage horses in Europe including German Dressage Champion and team member, Piccolino. His dam features the blood of the legendary Absatz – the sire who gave the modern Hanoverian its refinement and quality. Prince Noir has had a successful competition career in Europe and Australia up to FEI level with various riders. ‘The Prince’ is a superbly elegant horse with ‘picture book’ good looks. He is jet black with four white stockings and a perfect blaze to set off perfect conformation and stunning presence. He would be just as ‘at home’ in the show ring, as he is in the Dressage Arena. Prince Noir carries the blood of the very successful thoroughbred stallion Prince Thatch who is found in the pedigrees of some of the most successful Dressage horses competing in Europe today … and like so many of these highly prized individuals … he is of the finer more elegant type rather than the ‘old fashioned’ heavier Warmblood, that first made it’s mark 30 years ago. We are very excited to have Lily join our broodmare herd and look forward to some outstanding foals in the future.

GV Sucha Blonde



2008, Palomino, Australian Warmblood, 15.2hh, ACE registered.

A mare with the sweetest of temperaments. This mare is bred to jump as she is by the beautiful palomino JC Solomon who has the well known and well performed Chico D'Oro in his bloodlines, as well as the jumping sensation Espri. JC Solomon is a stallion with the pedigree combination of the exceptional performance stallions, Chico D'Oro and Espri. Chico D'Oro is an Australian Palomino stallion who was world renowned for his showjumping achievements. He sired many showjumpers - amongst the best were Grand Prix horses, Prince D'Oro and Aschico, who represented Australia in the 1988 World Cup Final in Sweden with Andrew Inglis. Espri (click here for PDF with Information), a chestnut German Hanovarian, was a successful Word Cup showjumper and dressage horse. He has sired many famous showjumping horses - the most famous being ET, winner of the 1995 jumping Derby and Volvo World Cup finals in 1996. JC Solomon has an aura of elegance - a beautiful, finely chiselled head, big expressive eyes and a temperament of ease and gentleness. He has an exceptional front, movement is large and rhythmic, elastic paces and swings nicely through the body with great flexion of the joints. JC Solomon started his breeding career in 2005. He was served to three chestnut mares resulting in three stunning palomino foals! Each foal has inherited Solomon's powerful front, gentle temperament and flowing movement. JC Solomon has proven his ability to improve on any type of mare. On a lighter mare he gives bone, great front and clarity. On the heavier mare, he passes on his elegance and cadence. Blondie’s grandsire Espri was the "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 1995" and is one of Germany's best sires for both dressage and jumping horses. His offspring excel as outstanding jumping horses of enormous ability and energetic movements. At present his progeny have earned nearly two million Deutschmarks in competition. The most famous son of Espri is "E.T. FRH" (rider: Hugo Simon, Austria) who is still one of the most successful international show jumping horses. Another son, Edgar, was the 1996 World Champion seven-year-old jumper, and son Esprit de Valdemar competed at the 2000 Olympics. Espri is a correct, medium-framed stallion with a good topline and an excellent disposition. Chico D'Oro (foaled in 1969) - one of Australia’s premium stallions who truly was Mr Versatile! He won in all disciplines himself and produced top class performers who did the same. Chico was 6 times Royal Show Champion - 2 Sydney, 2 Brisbane, 2 Melbourne - as well as National Supreme Champion Palomino. He competed and won to Medium level Dressage, had 2 ODE starts (under Dennis Piggott) and won both. He then went to Showjumping – his major talent - where he won many Grand Prix events, was long listed for the Montreal Olympics in 1976 and was 3rd in the pre-Olympic trial in 1976. It was as a sire that Chico really made his mark, siring Champion Showjumpers, Palominos, Eventers, Dressage horses, Hacks, Western Horses and Campdrafters. Blondie is out of a mare that is another Australian jumping sensation, High Rail Roll the Dice who was by the colourful Australian Thoroughbred Colourful Gambler. GrandView are very excited to have Blondie join our breeding program and as anticipated Blondie is producing very beautiful foals with that signature JC Solomon stunning head and front end.

2012, Black, Australian Warmblood, 16.2hh, ACE Registered

GrandView are super excited to have this outstanding filly in our broodmare herd. She is by the great Furstenball (Furst Heinrich and a double cross of Donnerhall). Furstenball is a unique heredity genius in current dressage horse breeding. Outstanding winner of the 2009 performance test as well as champion stallion at the Oldenburger licensing in 2008 who sold for the record price of EUR 110,000 as a foal at auction. Every single one Fürstenball’s performances at the Oldenburg licensing showed off his absolutely incredible willingness, strong nerves and relaxed temperament. Every single stride was uphill and his movements swung through his entire body. This wonderful champion stallion demonstrates three elegant and elastic basic paces and natural impulsion. He’s a young stallion who scored best in his performance test, despite competition from many other excellent stallions in his group. Sire, Fürst Heinrich, was the impressive 2003 winner of the World Championship of Five Year Old Dressage Horses, and he has produced many first-rate horses. He is high up on the FN breeding index with a score of 151. Maternal grandsire, Donnerhall, is without doubt an excellent stallion, and the dam’s Tierce bloodline consistently produces successful horses, such as the champion stallion in Oldenburg in 2007, Sieger Hit, top-class broodmares and successful advanced level dressage horses. Fürstenball’s dam, Maradonna, also produced an approved stallion by Dimaggio. This famous dam line, which was founded by breeder Georg Sieverding, with dam, granddam and great-granddam being state premium mares with elite status, leads to our assumption that this stallion will pass on his outstanding genes to his offspring. 70 day performance test winner with an incredible 154.99 score, with 9 and above for all but his jumping, this stallion looks like the one to be on in 2010!! First Lady's dam sire, Vancouver (imp) Imported from Sweden he was extremely successful at Grand Prix level. Tragically Vancouver was lost to colic in 1998 however his influence remains through his daughter Vangelica. To date she has produced two foals to Grand Kavalier, a stallion prospect colt in 2003 and an exquisite filly in 2004. GrandView very much looks forward to producing some exquisite foals from this classy and elegant filly.

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…!

Bay warmblood filly Born 21 November 2013.

Mature approx. 16.2-16.3hh. ACE registered. Bella is a stunning red bay filly….with the looks of a princess! She has a beautiful petite head, glorious front end and is already showing that outstanding uphill movement that she is deserved of, given her impeccable bloodlines. She has a sweet and curious nature. This filly will be an absolute head turner in the dressage arena in years to come! Bella’s bloodlines are impeccable. Her sire is the breathtaking Belissimo M who is a record breaking stallion performance test winner. As sire of rideability Belissimo Meclipses all 8 stallion performance test winners and 3 vice performance test winners from his first three crops are possibly a world record! In addition, 3 Bundeschampions and Blickpunkt a celebrated bronze medal winner at the World Championship for young dressage horses in Verden 2009 – 5 offspring from his first crop (2004) were nominated for the World Championship! Further winners of championships (South Germany, Switzerland, USA) and many high priced auction horses world-wide – Belissimo M resoundingly stamps his foals with equestrian qualities for the highest demands. According to FN’s estimated breeding value statistics 2009 he is ranked fifth nationwide as a dressage sire with 169 points. This resounding inheritance is the result of systematic performance breeding: Belissimo M’s sire Beltain was himself successful in the dressage arena up to advanced (S) class and originates from one of the most successful mare lines of Hanover: His dam is full sister of the Celle State Stud sires Garibaldi I and II and granddam of Wolkenstein I and II as well as of the Grand Prix dressage horse Little Big Man; also the Celle State Stud sires Brentano I and II as well as Beauvalais (e.g.Vice World Champion 2002 in Jerez, Olympic bronze medal in Athens 2004) belong to them. His dam Roxa produced, when bred to Boss, three successful full siblings up to advanced (S) level in dressage : Bonnie Bianco, Baccarole and Boutique. On Bella’s dam side she has a double cross of the outstanding Grannus II, who is by the famous Grannus. Grannus II was imported from West Germany in 1984 and he has Germany’s successful sire line. His progeny has sold throughout Australia as Showjumping, dressage and show horses. Grannus II was very influential over all mares and threw strong characteristics. Some of his well performed and well know progeny include Belcam Glasgow, Belcam Gambler and Genghis Khan. Daktylus is also in Bella’s dam line. Daktylus was a jumping phenomenon and is considered twenty years ahead of his time. He was a “typey” attractive horse, the result of careful infusion of outside genes, such as the thoroughbred and Selle Francais, without compromising the principles of German breeding. Unfortunately Daktylus’ life was cut short by a mystery illness but he has left a legacy of successful competition horses such as the Grand Prix and World Cup showjumpers Kinnordy D’Artagnan and Daley K. Aachen (an Argentinus son) is also present in Bella’s dam line. Aachen achieved high jumping marks in his Stallion Performanct 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. 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. After his career in international jumping, Aachen participated in dressage with Holger Wulschner's wife, Iris Wulschner. Bella has the looks, movement and bloodlines to take her rider to the top of their chosen discipline! She will have an enviable competition career!

Bay tobiano warmblood filly Born 20 November 2013.

Mature approx. 16.3hh. ACE registered. We have been blessed with a stunning bay tobiano filly..!!! Scribble is a tall strong filly who is exceptionally well proportioned, with big, expressive movement. She has the lovely cruisey & curious nature of her dam, together with an impressive lineage that will be sure to hold her in good stead as a striking sport horse of the future. She is expected to mature approx 16.3hh. Scribble has an impressive lineage and is by the gorgeous Sanyo is described as a pinto stallion with a special personality. An harmonious silhouette, good size, an elastic sequence of movements in all gaits, a jumper willing to perform, even when the odds are up and, of course, his especially interesting color. Sanyo was the centre of attention twice on the Vechta auction stage: First at the Elite Foal Auction in 2003 where he caused furious bidding and again, two years later, as a freshly licensed young stallion who brought the second highest price at the Stallen Market during the 2005 Oldenburg licensing, selling for 110,000 Euros. In 2006 he passed his 30-day test in Prussendorf and in 2008 the 70-day test in Neustadt/Dosse. He has won and placed in novice (A) level tests for young show jumpers. Strong moving and strong type foals from Sanyo's first crop, many of them pintos, were awarded premiums by several Verbands. Sanyo’s sire, Semper, was the 1997 Champion Stallion of the Pinto Verband. A son of Sandro, who competed in sport up to advanced (S) level, and grandson of the well-known pinto, Samber (who competed in dressage and show jumping up to advanced (S) level), he proved to be a good sire, presenting many champion foals at various shows. He is also the sire of Special Design, Semper Idem GH and Sempatico M (USA) who are also licensed. His dam, Morena, competed in dressage. Her half-brother, Sommersby (by Strohmann xx) placed in medium (M) level show jumping classes. Sanyo’s strong moving dam's sire, Pablo (today in USA) was a colorful stallion personality in young years, winning tests for young jumpers in series and successfully participating in the Bundeschampionat. In 1992 he was awarded the I-b main premium on the basis of the good results at his stallion performance test and his good first crop. The performance records of his offspring put him near the top of the list in the FN's predicted breeding value statistics. Through the Furioso II son, Feingau (Reserve Champion of the performance test), and the Oldenburg Champion Stallion, Admirand (also the sire of the unforgotten Fiorella Queen who sold for the record breaking price of 200,000 D-Mark in 1982 in Vechta), the pedigree has been shored up from all sides for performance and rideability since these sires were known for passing on riding horse qualities in particular. The rather limited Oldenburg line of Burgherrin (by Fürstenstein-Oberon-Mandus-Remmer-Sachs) produced a good number of sport horses that competed in show jumping as well as dressage up to advanced (S) level. Scribble’s dam is by the great Moselfischer out of a thoroughbred mare. Moselfischer was imported to Australia in 1983 and is a 17.1hh Registered Imported Hanoverian stallion who’s progeny have been well sort after by enthusiasts in both Australia and the international market. This impressive stallion produced outstanding progeny with all the attributes of a modern performance horse: expressive movement, superb jumping ability, good rideability and incredible temperaments. Moselfischer himself competed successfully in Prix St George and Show Jumping, and shares the breeding lines with internationally recognised Champion sire Stakkato, famous dressage horse Slibovitz and impressive Celle State Stud stallion Sherlock Holmes. Moselfischer's sire, Mozart stood at stud in Celle, West Germany. Mozart has sired 110 stud mares in the 10 years from 1972 to 1982. These 110 mares are registered with the Hanoverian Warmblood Breeder's Association in Germany. Thirteen of the Stud mares have been issued with the special state Premium Certificate (STATE PREMIUM MARES). Moselfischer's Dam, has born 7 live foals in eight breeding year's. Senny has won many 1a (first) and 1 (first) places at Mare Shows and several of her daughters are known as highly distinguished Stud Mares. With these performance greats in her bloodlines GrandView Splashback certainly has the headstart to a great and enviable career, with the added bonus of a glorious red bay tobiano coat that will attract attention where ever she is competing!

Dicavalli Divinity

Dicavalli Divinity1


2005, Bay, Australian Warmblood, 16hh, AWHA Registered

Divinity is by Donnatraum (imp) (Donnerhall/ Lortzing/ Wenzel I) out of an Aachimedes/ Diamond B Challenger mare. Divinity is trained to Advanced/ Prix St George level but only competed sporadically due to riders commitment to work and university. Donnatraum was shown in hand at 4 shows in 2007 for Supreme champion at each show. His dressage performances are also impressive, including Queensland State Novice Champion in 2006 and winner of the Dressage Trophy at the 2006 Queensland State Championships for the best performed AWHA horse at all levels. Donnerhall needs no introduction as one of the greatest stallions of all time. Donnerhall began his career in 1984, placing second out of 70 horses at his Stallion Performance Test, with a score of 131.92. According to his rider, he was very easy to train, reaching the Grand Prix level in two years. He was especially well known for his expressive passage, piaffe and extended trot. Donnerhall had an impressive dressage career, winning some of the most prestigious competitions, including over 65 FEI Grand Prix Dressage classes and a life earning of DM 640,000. On Divinity’s dam side is Aachimedes, who is by Aachen (imp), who is by Argentinus, another legendary and influential stallion, who still dominates both the dressage and jumping world today through his many sons. The list of Argentinus’ achievements during the course of his long career is long. Divinity was bred by Dicavalli stud with show horse and dressage quality movement. She was retired as a 9yo due to a paddock injury and has been a broodmare since. GrandView are very excited to welcome this mare with her impressive pedigree to our broodmare herd and very much look forward to producing some dilute versions of herself going forward.

We cannot help but be excited by the addition of WE Sierra to our broodmare herd. Sierra has an impressive pedigree. Sierra is by the beautiful black stallion Swarovski (IFS) from which unbelievable elegance radiates from this high gloss black stallion with optimal elasticity. At the Oldenburg licensing in Vechta, his appearances were always characterized by a superior harmony. When it comes to canter and walk, he's in a class of his own. Generous riding horse lines and very much a stallion, his pedigree seems like out of a fairy tale – and with his dark coat, he's one of Oldenburg's most striking young stallions! His sire, Sandro Hit, is presently the most popular heir of the Sacramento Song xx bloodline which is established in Holstein but spread widely through Sandro in the Warmblood breeding areas of Oldenburg and Hanover. Sandro Hit was the 1999 Bundeschampion of six-year old dressage horses and World Champion of young horses in Arnheim. There's also no denying his great grandsire, Rubinstein! The first off-spring by his sire, Sandro Hit, meanwhile collect ribbons in S-level dressage tests all the way up to Grand Prix, proving their sire's potential for performance. The dam, St.Pr.St. Herzdame, has the same combination of bloodlines (Don Gregory x Rubinstein) as the spectacular Champion Stallion and dressage World Champion, Don Davidoff. The mare line of the Hessenstein/Trakehner daughter, Heide, often produced exceptional horses, e.g. two top auction horses, Floral Dance by Furioso II (a full brother of the great granddam) and Stradivari, but also high class premium mares, dressage horses and jumpers as well. Sierra is out of a Sirocco (Imp) mare. Sirocco arrived as a two year old in Australia in October 2004, after a mammoth amount of research of hundreds of pedigrees and stallions. 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’s sire Sir Oldenburg was the declared darling of the Oldenburg Stallion Days of 2000 where he was decorated with the I-e premium. Donnerhall, one of the great dressage sires of this century. An Oldenburg liver chestnut standing 16.3 hands, he had flowing, supple gaits. Donnerhall’s dam, Ninette, also produced the mare Noblesse (by Pik Bube I). Ninette was from the Nagate line of mares. Her sire, Markus, was half-Thoroughbred and his sire Manolete xx is also found in the great eventing horse Volturno, winner of two Olympic silver medals and a silver medal at the 1978 World Championships in Lexington. Dressage career Donnerhall began his career in 1984, placing second out of 70 horses at his Stallion Performance Test held in Adelheidsdorf, with a score of 131.92. According to his rider, he was very easy to train, reaching the Grand Prix level of training in two years. He was especially known for his expressive passage, piaffe, and extended trot. Donnerhall had a stellar career as a dressage horse, winning some of the most prestigious competitions, including over 65 FEI Grand Prix Dressage classes and a life earning of D.M. 640,000. He was 1986 German DLG Champion in Hanover, beating out the very athletic Hanoverian stallion World Cup I. Sierra has an impressive pedigree on both sides of her lineage. We are super excited to have this mare with us and very much look forward to some outstanding foals in the coming seasons.

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.
