Born Easter morning, 3/31/13, this little bunny hopped right up after only one time with helping her get her very long legs under her.  She is a Premium ISR/Oldenburg filly, Reserve Inspection Site Champion, and should undoubtedly be international quality in both dressage movement and jumping ability. She is now the largest yearling we have ever produced, with huge bone everywhere.

Sire: Rashka is an ISR/Oldenburg stallion who won his 30-day test with the highest score in all US testing history,164.86, receiving a perfect 10 on his canter from all judges. He is from four generations of USDF Horse of the Year winners, and is himself a winner of 6 USDF HOY Championships, 4 USDF HOY Reserve Chanpionships, and 12 USDF All Breeds HOY Awards. Rashka's sire Raymeister was the highest scoring stallion at the 2002 Stallion Performance Test, is a three-time winner at Dressage at Devon, and has won firsts at Regional USDF in-hand and dressage championships. Ray was the 2005 USDF Leading Dressage Holsteiner, 2006 USDF Dressage HOY (T-4) and is consistently scoring 9 gaits. His foals are winning USDF/Cosequin Championships, inspection sites, and HOY awards. Rashka's dam Tashka is a premium ISR/Oldenburg and AHHA approved mare by Opus. She is an 8-time Horse of the Year winner (4 USDF & 4 ISR/Oldenburg), a multiple regional championship winner, and a DAD Suitability winner.
 
Dam: Paloma is an International Grand Prix Jumper and imported Westfalen mare who has won over $118,000 in her career. She was Gold Medal Winner of the mareshow (mare approvals) in Germany at 3 yrs. old, and was shown as a Grand Prix Jumper all over Europe, where one of her most successful partnerships was with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. After coming to the USA in late 1999, her riders included Patty Stovel, Laura Kraut, and Vince Ansley. Paloma was one of the US wild card entries in the 2002 Nations Cup held in Donaueschinggen, Germany. After winning the mare show at 3, every event ever entered, every class ever ridden in, both in the USA and Europe, she never placed lower than 13th out of huge classes. She is still held in high regard and is used as a major selling point at the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch e.V.ir Breed auctions. Her pedigree includes the wonderful jumper lines of her sire, Pit I by the legendary Pilot. Pit I is a premier sire of show jumpers including Paloma, Perina (Meredith Michaels), and Picadilly (Debbie Winkler). Paloma's dam is by Ramiroff, a Ramiro son.

(Tiamo Trocadero x O' She's Gauguin)

Tiamo's Trouper February 2017
tiamos_trouper_2017.jpg

Born 6/27/13 a Class I SWANA colt, Trouper is now a 17 hand, super-friendly, gelding with very light and free-flowing gaits that are always uphill.  He inherited some of his sire's chrome and should be an international Grand Prix dressage prospect.
 
Sire: Tiamo Trocadero is a Hanoverian International Grand Prix dressage stallion who was an alternate for the 2000 Olympics. He earned over 70% at top CDIs in Europe, and with his amateur owner, won many USDF year-end awards at the FEI levels. His sire, Trapper is known for passing on big, floating trots and very good rideability. Tiamo's dam is by Darling, whose pedigree includes the famous D-line stallions Duellant and Devil's Own xx.
 
Dam: O' She's Gauguin by Opus, was 2008 & 2009 USDF DSHB Mature Mare Horse of the Year. She is a Premium ISR/Oldenburg mare, also approved Premium (AB) for SWANA and Premium (MMP) for AHHA. Opus is 2006 USDF #1 Dressage Breeding Sire (2nd in 2005 and 2004), #1 NA/WPN Dressage Breeding Sire in USEF rankings for 2005 and 2004, #1 Producer of Premium Mares and HOY Winners since 2005. O' She's Gauguin's dam, Gauliana de Gauguin, is one of the top scoring Gauguin De Lully mares ever She and her dam, Elite Goliad (by almost all State Premium mares), both won DAD, the largest breed show in the US (including winning under saddle classes!). Elite Goliad is the niece to the ’76 US Olympic Dressage Bronze medalist, Monacco.

(Masterpiece x Roux Bien Bleu)

myrubi_022314_crop.jpg

Born 7/1/2013, a Class I SWANA filly with two white hinds and a star.  Based on pedigree and this cross, she should be an international Grand Prix dressage mount. She could also be a hunter prospect with impeccable form over fences since there is much success in that arena on both top and bottom of the pedigree.
 
Sire:  Masterpiece (SWANA & ISR/Oldenburg approved) was Reserve Champion of the 2002 30-day stallion test. He is the 2009 USDF Champion Mature Stallion and holds the highest median score ever given in USDF Dressage Sporthorse Breeding: 87.250%. He has scored as high as 84% under saddle, 88% in hand, 9 gaits, and a perfect 10 walk! A winner at DAD, he qualified FEI and open 3rd level at 5 years old. All but one of his foals we have presented have been premium/class I.
 
Dam:  Roux Bien Bleu (Rubi) was imported in utero and is a 3/4 sibling to Rohdiamant! She easily passed Performance Testings with both AHS and ISR/Oldenburg. Her sire, Rubinstein, had 40 wins at Grand Prix and was a member of the 1996 Olympic team. He produced 89 state premium mares and 66 approved stallions including Olympic caliber sons Rhodiamont, Relevant, royal Diamond, and Revan. Rubinstein's full brother Amon also took part in the Olympic Games three times. Johann Hinnemann, the former federal trainer of the German dressage elite, once said, "When we consider a stallion of the century, we refer to Rubinstein. His hereditary transmission is unequalled in respect to rideability seating comfort, affability and preparedness to perform. Truly a legendary stallion." Rubi's dam, St Pr Indullah, is by Inschallah/Furoiso II/Gotthard.

Tiamo's Raferro
 
(Tiamo Trocadero x Zabella/Olympic Ferro)

Tiamo's Raferro
tiamosraferroapril2015.jpg
April 2015

Born 7/30/13, a Class I SWANA colt. This colt not only has a winning pedigree but shows incredible type and movement - better than his Olympic sire and Olympic grand sire.  He should have the best piaffe that money can buy!  Both his Olympic sire and grand sire were extremely well-known for theirs.  He is definitely a Grand Prix dressage prospect.

  

Sire:  Tiamo Trocadero  is a Hanoverian International Grand Prix dressage stallion who was an alternate for the 2000 Olympics.  He earned over 70% at top CDIs in Europe, and with his amateur owner, won many USDF year-end awards at the FEI levels.  His sire, Trapper is known for passing on his big, floating trots and very good rideability.  Tiamo's dam is by Darling, whose pedigree includes the famous D-line stallions Duellant and Devil's Own xx.

 

Dam:  "Bella" is a very beautiful,16.1+ hand, true black, sweet natured KWPN mare, with incredible elastic gaits (especially in her trot and canter work). She is also approved premium ISR/Oldenburg. 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. Her 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%. 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. Zabella's 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.
