“Callie” is a 2009, black, Hanoverian mare. She is a stunning small package with suspension and ground-covering strides. Callie has a star, snip, and two matching white hind socks.  Never ‘mareish,’ this is a mare who loves attention and people. Currently performing training and first level movements, she has a strong desire to work and lots of energy and engagement. Her older brother is currently being ridden at PSG, and we have no doubt that Callie possesses the same talent for FEI work.  She is currently in foal for 2018 to Hilltop's Qredit (Quaterback X Rubinstein).

10 for rideability before winning numerous young horse classes and finishing 6th at the FEI World Championships for Young Horses and 5th at the Bundeschampionat as a 5-year old.   Paired with Carola Koppelmann, Comic swept his classes at the Hickstead CDI and won the prestigious Nürnberger Burgpokal Finals with a 74.10% before a successful Grand Prix debut and subsequent qualification for the HKM Cup Finals. Comic’s sire Come On was a successful

international show jumper with wins and top placings at Nations Cup events

Rosalita is a Premium ISR/Oldenburg mare, also approved AHHA (MM). She is lovely and expressive, with elastic gaits. Born 7/10/05, she's a proven broodmare, and has produced several foals including a provisionally approved stallion, Merry Me, who was high score of his ISR/Oldenburg stallion inspection. Rosalita is one of the prettiest horses you may ever see and has generations of St. Premium and Elite mares throughout her pedigree. Although she had a late start under saddle because of her foals, she is a very good riding horse: extremely smart, supple, naturally round in the bridle, and up in the forehand.  She displays good, forward thinking and shows more ELASTICITY in just her working gaits than most grand prix dressage horses ever show! Her very round body at 16 hands makes her suitable for those wanting a 16.2 mount as well.   

Sire: Rosario is by Rubenstein I and was 2002 Oldenburg Regional Champion. At his Performance Test he achieved the highest dressage index. He stands out against the many popular Rubinstein sons because of his spectacular trot as well as his outstanding walk and canter.

"Bella" is a very beautiful, 2004, 16.1+ hand, true black (she is sun-bleached in the photos), sweet natured KWPN mare, with incredible elastic gaits (especially in her trot and canter work).  It would be hard to find a more comfortable, uphill canter anywhere.  Very clean, expressive, uphill flying changes with good lateral work.  She is not only suitable for the upper levels of dressage, she also displays a rare honesty to fences, with good hunter form and rhythm.  She is a joy to jump and seems to have taken to it like a fish to water.  She was a top-ten yearling in the 2005 KWPN/NA Keuring and a 2006 American Royal Sporthorse in-hand Champion.  She has scores in the 70%s at both Open Training and 1st Levels, is showing 1st and 2nd Levels, and is ready to qualify for 3rd level.  Bella is a full sibling to Undercover, who made the 2006 short list for USEF/Markel Young Horse Dressage FEI World Breeding Championships in Verden.  He was also the 2006 Reserve Champion All-Breed award winner for First Level-open, the #1 ranked NA/WPN yearling in North American in 2002, and top ten for the NA/WPN Conformation and Free Jumping in 2003.  Bella has two sets of good x-rays, one from this season and one from three years ago. 

 

She is approved and entered into the ISR/Oldenburg Premium mare book with a score of 105. She is a proven broodmare: dam of a 2013 colt, Tiamo's Raferro, by Reuters Tiamo Trocadero.

 

Sire: Olympic Ferro 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. He achieved the title of "Keur" in 2000. His sire Ulft, is bythe great Le Mexico, who carries Furioso xx blood, which brings value to any pedigree. Ferro's dam, Brenda, is a daughter of the Holsteiner, Farn, who is listed sixth on the jumping index with 146 points. Olympic Ferro sired the champion of the three-year-old stallions at s'Hertogenbosch in 2000, and had nine young stallions in the second round there in 2001. The champion three year old mare at Ermelo in 2000 was an Olympic Ferro daughter. Ferro produces beautiful, typey, talented offspring of the highest quality, with fantastic toplines and an elegant look. In addition to their excellent dressage ability, Olympic Ferro's offspring also make good jumpers. Olympic Ferro is #1 on the BN World Stallion Rankings for dressage. In 2002 Olympic Ferro once again had the highest scores on the Dutch Olympic team. 

 

Dam: Nirvana is by Fleming, and her dam sire is Calypso I by Cor de la Bryere.  She is a well balanced, modern type Dutch mare, standing 16.2 h.  At her 2004 kuering, Nirvana received a First Premium and her "Ster Predicate" ranking.  The jury awarded her a 73 for conformation and a 70 for movement.  She was Top Ten with the NAWPN as a two year old, and has proven to be a top-notch producer, stamping foals with her lovely long neck, sculptured face, and a temperament second to none.  In the September 2008 USDF Connection Magazine, Nirvana was ranked in the Top 10 of Dams Producing Three or More 'Great American Insurance Group/ USDFBC Series' Grand Champions and Reserve Grand Champions for the years 1998-2007!  Her sire, Fleming has competed successfully in Europe and the United States at Grand Prix. This well respected stallion is approved not only with the KWPN, but also with the Holsteiner, Oldenburg Verband, and ISR registries. Nirvana's dam is an imported mare from the strong jumping lines of Calypso I.
