HARMONIE TF - 2017 Hanoverian Filly - EH Herzensdieb/Wolkentanz/Borneo
This elegant and kind 2017 Hanoverian Filly has recently entered our herd as a broodmare and riding horse prospect. She is by Trakehner E.H. Herzensdieb (Tambour) out of Elite Eligible Hanoverian mare Weidentanz (Wolkentanz/Borneo/Grunewald). Bred by Christy Schulthess.
We are excited for the opportunity to acquire this young filly with an exceptional pedigree. She will be presented at the AHS Futurity in 2018 and shown at USDF in-hand shows during her youth. This filly has an exemplary temperament - calm, gentle, and with movement as her name suggests... with harmony!

HOPE OF TANTRIS - 2015 Trakehner Mare - Tantris/Abdullah Pg*E*/Amiego Ps*E* - etm 17.1h
A homebred "keeper filly" and broodmare prospect for us! 'Talhia' is out of our Trakehner mare Hallalujah Anyway, a seasoned and successful Dressage competitor, loaded with athletic jumper heritage. Talhia is sired by the German imported Oldenburg Tantris (GOV) who is by Traumdeuter (TRK) and with the mare line of Rubina-Aktuell, which consistently appears in stallions within the top 10 WBFSH rankings for dressage including several from Blue Hors Stud. Tantris competed in FEI dressage well into his 20's and is known around the US for his rideability and passing on feet with tough soles and good angles. Talhia is no exception.
Talhia received all 8's (premium level scoring) at her weanling ATA inspection with comments about her lovely eye and expressive, athletic gaits.
As a yearling in 2016, Talhia scored a 72.6% at a Chicago area USDF in hand show and was the highest in-hand score of the show. She will be bred as a 3 year old and then taking some time off to compete with Sarah in young horse and material classes for a few years. We also hope to complete her Mare Performance test and mare inspection with ATA when she is 4 or 5.
RED ROBIN - 2008 Hanoverian mare - Rienzi/Donnerhall/Feiner Stern - 15.2h
"Robin" is a product of the Marefield Meadows breeding program. Her full sister was the 2014 National AHS Futurity Champion! She is by ES Rienzi and out of Elite Mare Dauphine, who is a full sister to the German stallion Dauphin (by Donnerhall). We are very lucky to have a mare with the immortal Donnerhall as her dam sire! Robin is extremely sweet and kind. If she could fit through our front door, you would find her on the couch with her head on your lap. She is extremely sensible and takes all training and new situations extremely well. A true amateur's dream horse! All the same, her gaits are professional quality with extreme power from behind and great schwung. Her strong traditional Hanoverian blood gives her a clean, clear, rhythmic walk and a balanced canter. Videos below include footage of her 2016 and 2017 foals.
Robin is in foal to Fuerst Rousseau (Rousseau/Weltmeyer) for a 2018 foal! Colt in-utero sale option available.
LUCYNDA *P* - 2001 Trakehner Mare - Onassis *E*/Condus*E*/Siegbert - 16.1h
By Onassis *E* (sire of Tatendrang *Pb*). Out of Leto, a full sister to Grand Prix champion Leonidas *Pg *E*. This mare was bred by Hilda Gurney and had a successful jumper career on the West Coast, including the honor of the ATA low jumper horse of the year in 2011. She completed her Mare Performance test in 2016 and is now known as Lucynda *P*.
Lucy is an extremely athletic and courageous mare. In addition to being a careful jumper, she showed great promise for cross country at an Andreas Dibowski clinic, navigating various cross country fences for the first time ever with relative ease. She has naturally uphill and expressive gaits for dressage, completing the ideal for the versatile Trakehner horse.
Lucynda *P* is in foal to Hancock *Pb* (Imperio/Muenchhausen/Sixtus) for a 2018 dressage prospect foal. Colt option available for in-utero sale.

HALLALUJAH ANYWAY - 2000 Trakehner mare - Abdullah*Pg*E*/Amiego*Ps*E*/Graditz*E* - 17.0h
"Danika" scored a high '54' at her American Trakehner Association inspection with 8's on her type, gaits, and walk. Danika is line-bred to the immortal Abiza, called the most influential Trakehner mare in the 20th century. Danika competed in dressage successfully through 2nd level, and was ranked USDF National reserve champion at first level until an injury changed her focus to broodmare-extraordinaire. Her sire, Abdullah *Pg*E* was a show jumping phenom in the 80's winning international competitions and was an Olympic Gold Medalist. Her dam sire, Amiego *Ps*E*, was a bronze medalist at the Pan Am games in eventing, and was exported from the US to Germany (yes, out of the US to Germany!)as a breeding stallion. Abiza, the dam of both Abdullah and Amiego was considered by many to be the most influential Trakehner mare of the 20th century. She also was exported back to Europe after a short time in the states. We are so lucky to have a line-bred Abiza mare as a broodmare.
Danika herself is a kind, gentle, trusting, and confident mare. She passes on her versatile Trakehner athleticism and laid back personality to her offspring. Both her 2014 colt and 2015 filly received 'premium' marks by the German Oldenburg Verband and American Trakehner Association, respectively. Her 2008 filly by Devon Heir was recently the CDA 2016 1st level freestyle champion!
Congratulations to lessee Vanessa Scheiner for her expected 2018 foal out of Danika and by her stallion Iconicus (Idocus/Rambo)!
