The dam sire Donnerhall needs no introduction. In 1986 he was the DLG champion in Hanover. In 1994 after many wins in Grand Prix, Grand Prix special and freestyle classes at international level he became the German champion in Manheim, team World Champion and individual bronze medal winner in The Hauge, Karen Rehbein. In 1997 he won the team gold medal and individual bronze at the European Dressage Championships in Verden. In 1998 he was once again included in the German team who won team gold in Rome where Donnerhall placed fourth in the individual. Donnerhall won the World Cup European League as well as being named the Oldenburg dressage stallion of the year in 1997 and1998. At the end of 1998 he was retired to stud. World Cup II the a Celle State Stud sire was competed up to advance class in showjumping.

The dams Grandsire is none other than Weltmeyer. What more can be said about Weltmeyer? He is a legend. As the AHS put it, “Weltmeyer continues to almost single-handedly reshape the Hanoverian breed.” He was the 1986 winner of the stallion licensing in Verden, and the 1987 winner of the stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf. In the same year Weltmeyer also won the three-year-old stallions classification at the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses in Warendorf. In 1988 he was honored in Verden as best stallion of his age-group and awarded with the “Freiherr von Stenglin-Prize”. One year later he became DLG Champion 1989 in Frankfurt. And last but not least he became “Hanoverian Stallion of the Year” in 1998.

Whats not to like about this pedigree? This mare notoriously throws very beautiful foals with huge movement and a lovely calm temperament. This gorgeous filly is no exception..!
