Dark brown/bay Rhineland gelding by Diamond Stud (GOV and approved Rhineland) out of imported Hanoverian mare Francesca (Federweisser/Weltruhm).
With a pedigree full of Grand Prix stars, Diamond Stud offers North American breeders a rich heritage of top performers and proven rideability. Equally impressive was his gentlemanly demeanor in the barn and with people. Diamond Stud successfully completed the 70-day test at Silver Creek Farm in 2010. Some of his score highlights were: Test Director scores – Character “10”, Temperament “9.5”, Willingness to work “9”, Constitution “9”, Rideability “8.5” and Judges’ scores for movement – walk “8.5”, trot ” 8.50″, canter “8.75”. Diamond Stud has sired many premium foals; his oldest offspring have just been started under saddle and they are displaying not only very good gaits, but also high rideability. As Diamond Stud recently passed away, we feel fortunate to be able to offer this quality son of his. His Hanoverian dam, Francesca, consistently produces versatile, typey horses with 3 good gaits and an excellent work ethic.
“Dragon” is a personable, mellow colt who loves to interact with humans. He is tall and correct with an incredible neck, and will have height and substance (estimated final height: 16.2-16.3). He displays lovely correct gaits with loads of suspension. While Dragon is a serious dressage prospect, dam-sire Federweisser has proven to be a versatile sire, having produced FEI dressage horses, jumpers, and several of the top eventers in the world, so there’s no reason this handsome guy won’t also excel over fences.
Two of Francesca’s offspring have been retained by breeder which is why this special guy is for sale for $11,500 USD.
