This January 2017, ISR/Oldenburg filly was premature, but she is one of the best dressage foals we have had. 

Sire: Ovation is a 2009, ISR/Oldenburg stallion, standing 16.3 hands.  A huge, elastic mover with a sweet personality, he had the highest dressage score at his stallion inspection.  He scores in the 70s and 80s, with 9 on gaits and lateral movements.  Among his annual HOY awards for USDF and ISR/Oldenburg, is USDF HOY 3rd Level Freestyle with a score of 76.000%. His sire, Opus, is Dutch registered and ISR/Oldenburg approved. He was 2006 USDF #1 Dressage Breeding Sire (2nd in 2005 and 2004), # 1 NA/WPN Dressage Breeding Sire for both USDF and USEF since 2004, and # 1 Producer of ISR/Oldenburg Premium Mares and Horse of the Year winners since 2005. Opus received a dressage score of 140.59 at his stallion testing, one of the highest ever. He received the only 9 given in the gaits category (by all 4 judges), and one of only two 10's given in ridability! Opus has won 2nd place four times at Dressage at Devon and qualified to 3rd level by 5 years old. Ovation’s dam, EM Windspiel (Weltmeyer x St Pr Argronomia/Argentan/Pik Koenig) is an elite Hanoverian mare with a world-class pedigree. She is by the legendary Weltmeyer and out of a state premium mare by Argentan. Windspiel was USDF HOY with her amateur owner at levels 1 and 2.

Dam: Brilotta is by Briar.  At 16.2+ hands, she is a beautiful type with correct legs and huge bones - a freer mover than her sire, by far.  She was a Class I filly, and the year of her inspection she was the only foal given a 9 on her trot by SWANA. Briar is a 17 hand stallion who, for 7 years, was the highest ranked dressage stallion in the world. In 2008, he was Champion of Aachen, the world's most prestigious competition.  He has been to the Olympics twice. (In 2000 at Sydney, he was the youngest horse to compete.)  He has won silver and bronze medals in 4 European Championships, competed in 7 World Cup finals, 2 World Equestrian Games, and is winner of 6 Swedish Championships and has 16 International wins at Grand Prix in several different countries.  Briar has produced 8 approved sons (2 being winners of Sweden's stallion test) receiving 10s for rideability and gaits.  Brilotta’s dam, Carlotta II, is an incredible moving Trakehner mare, imported from Germany with a top performance pedigree that can't be found anywhere.  She is an OSB mare, to whom the Trakehner Verband gave a score of 54 (77%).  She is the only daughter in North America of the outstanding jumper Elite Kasparow, who won his 100 day test in Neustadt Dosse with all licensing scores at least 9, and a 10 on his walk.  Carlotta's dam Coquette is by the Premium and Elite stallion, Tivano.

USDF DSHB 2017 Colt/Gelding Horse of the Year

oboy_bravacorray_2017.jpg
photo by Nicole Nicholson

Personality Plus Pedigree!  Born 3/18/2017, O’Boy is a premium ISR/Oldenburg colt, reserve champion colt of his inspection site.  He is elegant yet substantial like his dam, with incredible movement and freedom in the front end like his sire, Opus.  O’ Boy is very friendly and confident, a beautiful type, bred for both dressage and jumping.  Undefeated in the show ring and winning championships at every show, O' Boy was high score of the USDF breed show at Circle E Equestrian in Green Bay, WI., with an 80+%. At Fields & Fences on August 6, he was in the 80s again and high score of the entire show.  He has very substantial body muscling for such a young colt, yet still is a very pretty type, suitable for a dressage or jumper prospect, and his huge, elastic movement makes him a definite stallion prospect.  He is going to be the one to watch for in the young horse under saddle and over fences.

Sire: Opus is Dutch registered and ISR/Oldenburg approved. He was 2006 USDF #1 Dressage Breeding Sire (2nd in 2005 and 2004), # 1 NA/WPN Dressage Breeding Sire for both USDF and USEF since 2004, and # 1 Producer of ISR/Oldenburg Premium Mares and Horse of the Year winners since 2005. Opus* received a dressage score of 140.59 at his stallion testing, one of the highest ever. He received the only 9 given in the gaits category (by all 4 judges), and one of only two 10's given in ridability! Opus has won 2nd place four times at Dressage at Devon and qualified to 3rd level by 5 years old.

Dam: Brava Cor Ray is 16.3 hands and has breathtaking movement. As a 2 year old, with limited showing, she placed both at Dressage at Devon and in USDF HOY standings. Her sire, R Cor Ray, has wonderful bloodlines, type, and movement. Although he was injured as a yearling and has a slight irregularity, you can still see his jumping and movement ability. His sire Raymeister is the most winning horse in USDF history, the highest scoring stallion at the 2002 Stallion Performance Test, a three time winner at DAD, consistently scoring 9 gaits, 2005 USDF Leading Dressage Holsteiner with an average score of 78+%, 2006 USDF Horse of the Year, and sire of approved ISR/Oldenburg stallion Rashka, who has the highest score in the history of all US stallion testing, 164.86. R Cor Ray's dam Condina is by the legendary Cor de la Bryere and is a full sibling to the approved Holsteiner stallion, Condino. Brava Cor Ray’s dam is Paloma, 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 mare show (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.  She was never out of the ribbons, even with 19 different riders (including several children), and was a wild card for the United States World Cup. 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.
