Fidertanz// A Dark Bay Rhinelander Stallion.
Full Name: Fidertanz
Breeding Summary: Fidermark / Ravallo / Fruhlingstraum II
Dam: SPS Rheine Freude
Colour: Dark Bay
Fidertanz, was the Champion Stallion of the North Rhine-Westphalian stallion licensing; winner of his stallion performance test; vice Bundeschampion and Main Premium Stallion. He has won many Prix St.George dressage competitions and earned top placements at Inter I. His offspring have included the winning colt at the German Foal Championships in 2008; the winning foal in the UK Futurity in 2009; and the three year old Oldenburg Champion Mare in 2007.
More than 30 Fidertanz-sons have been licensed, among them the North Rhine-Westphalian Champion Stallion and competitor at the Bundeschampionat, Flanagan, as well as the Euro 330,000 top-priced auction horse Feuerspiel. Many offspring have been placed in finals of the Bundeschampionat, among them Fairytaile who qualified for the German team for the 2011 FEI Dressage Horse World Championships. More than 100 Fidertanz-offspring from his first crop of foals earned successes in riding and dressage horse ability competitions.
Fidertanz is by Fidermark I, winner of his stallion performance test in 1995, Bundeschampion of four year old stallions in 1996 and a Grand Prix winner. He has produced 15 approved sons though he retried early from breeding to focus on competition. Johann Hinnemann has said of him, "Fidermark ... is the perfect horse. A dream horse. He has won around 20 Prix St. Georges/Intermediaire tests with a 20 yearl old girl ... riding him, which shows what an absolutely perfect character he has, and how light and sensitive he is to ride."
Legendary Florestan, Fidertanz's grand sire, stood at the Warendorf state stud. He sired over 80 approved sons and over a thousand registered broodmares, of which 190 have been awarded State Premium honours.
Ravallo, Fidertanz's dam's sire, was the winner of his performance test in Medingen in 1988 with an outstanding total index of 155.43 and was then trained as a riding horse before he started to breed in 1993. He makes noble foals that are mostly dark in color with good type and elastic, uphill movement and has sired four licensed sons. Through Goldstein-Pik König-Abhang III-Weiler-Goldfisch II, Ravallo has classic Oberndorf bloodlines on his dam's side. Ravallo's dam line is known for the stallions Amoroso I, II and III, and John Whitaker's successful Calvaro Z.
