Our Broodmare Herd!

HOPSCOTCH TF

2021 Bay Mare - EH Herzensdieb/Grand Cru/Sonnenstrahl) -17.1h Registered Hanoverian.

Bred by Telos Farm

"Hopscotch" is by the Leatherdale's Elite stallion E.H. Herzensdieb and out of the stallion-producing dam, EMC Galalea. 

Hopscotch will be a fantastic partner for a dressage or eventing career. Her sire EH Herzensdieb is an incredible dressage horse producer with a 142 FN value. Her dam's Grand Cru line can also jump like a cat, and her 2014 colt is an approved stallion jumper (Citadel).  We estimate Hopscotch will mature to 16.3/17 hands. She is a medium/dark bay with one sock and a very large diamond star. Registered AHS.

About her dam, Premium- Eligible Galalea:

Gala is a German Hanoverian, imported to the States as a young mare. She has produced many incredible foals - both from dressage sires and jumpers. Her foal by Clinton is now a BWP-approved breeding stallion, Citadel. Gala is a large mare, 16.3h, with excellent elasticity in the back and shoulders, which seems to be on the decline in much of today's popular warmblood breeding stock, in lieu of the snappy high knee. She has a kind and gentle nature.  Gala's sire, Grand Cru, comes from the Grande sire line which are know for their versatility in both jumping and dressage, and their excellent character. Grand Cru sired 8 approved stallions. His dam line includes the Trakehner Abglanz and is closely related to Admiral 1 & 2. At Grand Cru's stallion testing, he was said to have excellent rideability, rhythm, and cadence. Gala's dam line is classic, substantial, and charismatic German Trakehners. The tough stock that survived the incredible toll placed on the horses that made the trek across Poland in WW2. If you haven't read about the history of the mid-20th century Trakehner, I encourage you to do so!

About Hopscotch's sire, E.H. Herzensdieb:

Herzensdieb, by Tambour is one of the only Elite Hengst Trakehner stallions standing in the US. He was the licensing champion at Neumunster, Germany in 2005. He has a dressage FN breeding value of 142 and is in the top 10% of all German dressage sires!

Imported to the US by the Leatherdales, they report that, "In all his offspring, an elegant type, rideability and refinement can be seen. Herzensdieb not only adds spectacular movement and conformation, but he also passes along strength, rideability and a kind temperament."

FÜRSTIN FLIGHT TF- "Raven"

2018 Black Mare - Fürst Rousseau/Rienzi/Donnerhall - 16.1h. Registered Hanoverian

Bred by Telos Farm

Foal by Guildenstern SOL (Ivanhoe/Imperio) in 2022!

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.

Raven's mother, Red Robin, is a product of the Marefield Meadows breeding program. Her full sister was the 2014 National AHS Futurity Champion and this cross was repeated by Marefield THREE times! 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. Her feet are incredible - no flaring, very symmetrical, strong walls and good concavity with tough soles.  Other foals out of Robin include Skylark (2016, by Supremat), Wings (2017, by Werbellin) and Santino (2019, by Supremat).

WMA KENTUCKY TIKI - "Tiki"

2012 Chestnut Mare - The Kentuckian/Sambors Destiny/Tiki Sahiber Ku - 15h Registered Arabian (AHA)

Bred by Welcome Arabians, TX

Foal by RB Wild Card in 2023!

I've looked for a long time for a blood-horse mare that offered substantial bone, heart-girth, and a reaching hind leg. Welcome to Tiki! She carries the pedigrees of quality sport and race Arabians, with no halter influence. Sambor, Burning Sand, Kon Tiki.

She came in foal to a French-bred Arabian sport horse, and will be paired in future with Trakehners for sizable endurance prospects.

 

DYNASTY DSF - "Lady Dy"

2009 Black Mare - Donatelli/Rohdiamant/Freedom Z - 16.1h Registered OHBS (GOV) Oldenburg

Bred by Dreamscape Farm (Canada)

Dynasty DSF is new to our herd in 2023, however I've had my eye on this well-bred lady for a number of years! Registered GOV, she is black with a single lucky coronet. She has produced several KWPN foals and here will be brought to the AHS for Hanoverian foals.

Lady Dy has 3 solid gaits, her favorite is the canter. She has a ground-covering sexy walk :-). Substantial "old-style" substance in bone, chest, and heart girth. Her pedigree is well known for reliability and trainability.

This mare is PERSONABLE! She is always at the gate looking for a rub or a snack. Easy going in our small herd, very well mannered for all things. Not at all spooky but plenty forward to ride. She spent the winter in light work before entering back into the coddled broodmare life here.

Dynasty DSF is expecting an April 2024 foal by EH Herzensdieb. Check our our past foals by this sire, and out of PMF Galalea (Heart Song TF & Hopscotch TF) and PMC Widentanz (Harmonie TF)
