FÜRSTIN FLIGHT - "Raven"
2018 Hanoverian Filly - Fürst Rousseau/Rienzi/Donnerhall - etm 16.1h
Bred by Telos Farm, LLC
Red Robin gave us a beautifully elegant black filly in 2018. "Raven" is being retained as a future riding horse and broodmare with plans to breed at 3, foal at 4, and complete AHS mare performance testing at 5. She is by the Celle stallion Fuerst Rousseau (Rousseau/Weltmeyer) and out of our reliable Red Robin (Rienzi/Donnerhall/FeinerStern). We have high hopes that she will someday be an AHS Premium mare for our program.
Furst Rousseau has a dressage breeding value of 133, a rideability score of 9 and was shown successfully in FEI young rider classes after standing at stud at Celle. "At the end of the 70 day test Reserve Champion Furst Rousseau was obtained by the State Stud Celle. This is a very elegant and noble black stallion. He is half brother to Dramatic by Don Frederico who was 5 yo Champion of Young Dressage Horses in 2008. Furst Rousseau completed not only a fantastic stallion performance test, his close relative Barclay (Belissimo M – Prestige Pilot – Grenadier), was also awarded with highest scores and he finished this test as winner. Both horses have a mare line that has produced many licensed stallions, the damline of St Pr St Geranie by Grenadier – Arsenik, which originates with the family Wolgarune, father Wohler. This represents one of the best mare lines in Germany." (from International Horse Breeders). See SIRES page for more information, photos and videos.
HOPE OF TANTRIS - "Talhia"
2015 Trakehner Mare - Tantris/Abdullah Pg*E*/Amiego Ps*E* - etm 17.3h
Bred by Telos Farm, LLC
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 and in fact we purchased her dam specifically for this cross with Tantris.
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 5.
Talhia is in foal to Rascalino for 2019! Colt or Filly option available in-utero. This foal is expected to have amazing gaits and strong conformation for dressage. Talhia will take a year or two off to start undersaddle training before returning to the breeding shed.

LUCYNDA *P* - "Lucy"
2001 Trakehner Mare - Onassis *E*/Condus*E*/Siegbert - 16.1h
Retired from breeding, but back under saddle for endurance, dressage, and jumping.
May try an Embryo Transfer foal in 2019 for a dressage prospect foal!
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.

EMC GALALEA - "Gala"
2000 Hanoverian mare - Grand Cru/Sonnenstrahl/Albatsohn -16.3h
Gala is in foal to the Leatherdale's EH Herzensdieb for a 2020 foal! This Hanoverian/Trakehner cross foal is expected to have the elasticity and hind-end power needed for upper level dressage. Inquire for colt-option in-utero deposit.
Gala is by the well renowned G-line stallion Grand Cru, and out of a substantial German Trakehner dam. She was born in Germany and has had several foals here in America, including the BWP-licensed/approved stallion Citadel VS. She is an elite-scoring mare with the American Hanoverian Society. Unfortunately, due to an injury during her import from Europe she never began a riding career, but has certainly been a wonderful broodmare! Photos of prior offspring included in her gallery below.
About Grand Cru: (From "International Horse Breeders")
The sire of Grand Cru, Grand Garcon was a Grand Prix show jumper under Gerd Wiltfang before retiring to stud. As a sire, his progeny are to be found in the fore front of both show jumping and dressage, a fact which has placed their sire in a front position in the FN breeding value ratings. Grand Cru is bred out of a celebrated dam line. Athene also produced Walk on Top, German Riding Horse Champion and Swedish Olympic Dressage Team member. He is a stallion hard to be surpassed as regards character, presence and demeanour. He is clearly bequeathed with the eminent Trakehner charisma, and closely related to the stallions Admiral 1 & 11. He has wonderful rideability, his movements being enhanced with rhythm and cadence. Grand Cru is described as ‘good to excellent’ in the jumping category. He is a beautiful, large-framed stallion from the famous Grande line, and of very good type. Here is a lovely horse with great ability: an ingenious combination of Thoroughbred and old established Hanoverian lines.
Grand Cru produces horses of substance, with the mind, movement, athletic ability and charm to go to the top. He passes on strong dressage tendencies, and his daughter Gina won the broodmare performance class at the Louis Wiegels Show in 1999. He has 8 licensed sons, 54 state premium mares, 241 main stud book mares, and 96 auction horses. He improves in his offspring for riding type, dressage ability and jumping.
