An Oldenburg Premium foal, now turning into an elegant mare with long legs and elastic movement. She is by Furstenball out of our Verband premium Oldenburg mare, Desert Song. She has the lovely Furstenball temperamet, and is proving super trainable - when anything new is asked of her it is as if she has done it all before. Waverley Furst Dance (aka Annie) shows super balance in canter and excellent swing in the trot. As a four year old she could do canter figure of eights and canter loops showing remarkable balance for her age. She has an outstanding walk. She was backed as a three year old, taking to the ridden work and understanding the aids immediately. She was ridden lightly last year as she was still growing. She is now rising five and ready to start regular work.
Furstenball is one of the most impressive of sires in terms of stallion champions, premium stallions and stallions licensed, successful auction horses and champion and state premium mares. Dam sire Blue Hors Hotline is now competing successfully in International Grand Prix competition and is in turn sired by International Grand Prix stallion Gribaldi (sire of Totilas and WBFSH top sire for 2014 with numerous progeny competing at Grand Prix).
After selling for the record price of 120,000 euro at the Vechta Foal auction in 2006, Furstenball was Oldenburg licensing champion in Vechta two years later and the winner of the 70-day Stallion Performance Test in 2009 with the highest overall score and an extraordinary dressage index of 154.98 points. He was awarded a score of 9.0 and higher at least 16 times and he also received the highest score for rideability. He was proclaimed Hauptpremium Sieger in Oldenburg as a 4-year old with the best first crop of foals and Performance Test results. He then continued his dressage career with success by winning the 2011 Oldenburg Regional Championships in Rastede, the 2011 German Young Horse Championships (Bundeschampionate) in Warendorf and was a highly placed finallist at World Young Horse Championships in Verden in both 2011 and 2012; but it is perhaps as a breeding stallion that he will achieve his greatest success.
Hotline, Desert Song's sire, is a stunning individual and has proven his worth both in competition and as a breeding stallion. He was the undisputed champion at his 70 day test in Verden in 2006, which he finished with 149,28 points, being awarded highest marks for his temperament and his excellent rideability (the test riders gave him the perfect score of 10.0). He then placed first in the Danish Bundeschampionat in 2008 and a year later, won the qualifier with 9.45, becoming reserve champion. As the winner of advanced dressage classes at the age of seven and the Prix St. Georges at the Danish licensing in Herning at eight years old, Hotline's career has continued just as auspiciously as it started out as licensing champion in Hanover and record-price auction horse. In 2010, Hotline's first crop appeared under saddle and included Horizon, who sold for 550,000 Euro at the PSI Auction, and Halifax, who placed among the best five at the Bundeschampionat. Nine sons, including reserve champion of the 2010' South German licensing High Spirit, licensed. And at the 2011' PSI Auction Hopkins fetched 305,000 Euro, Hot Dance 100,000 Euro and Hot Spot 200,000 Euro. His daughter Sirikit became champion mare in Denmark in 2010.
Based in the heart of England (near Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire - home of the British Dressage National Championships) we breed and train a small number of dressage horses each year. Using only Elite or State Premium Dressage mares of good character, together with the best international stallions (all of which are Performance Tested and proven) our stock is of exceptional quality and trainability.
Leni won the 4 year old class at Manor Grange yesterday with a score of 8.46. He was an absolute star. Thrilled with him. He has a real work ethic and three fabulous paces, so we're excited about his future.
