Picture perfect 16.2hh 7 yr old chestnut mare by Don Frederico (Donnerhall/Donnerwetter) out of Walking Queen (Wolkentanz/Weltmeyer). Purchased from the breeder of Furst Heinrich, Heinrich Ramsbrock, in Germany February 2015. I am super excited about Bella’s future as both a competition horse and for breeding purposes. She has a top walk, really moving through her whole body with excellent relaxation and ground cover, a very good trot and an excellent uphill, expressive canter. She has a super, loving temperament and will be taken very slowly in her training with the future in mind. She is a State Premium Candidate.

The elegant and impressive Don Frederico became Champion of the 1999 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing. This “eye-catcher” completed his stallion performance test as runner-up with the amazing score of 151.67 points in the dressage section. He also constantly improved his qualities during the test, proving his excellent mental qualities.

Don Frederico convinces by his excellent rideability and his very good basic gaits which will impress all dressage riders. He is a member of the Celle black horse dressage quadrille. His offspring are also demonstrating dressage excellence. In 2005, Dantonisius and Dark Carlotta were Champion and Reserve Champion Four Year Old Riding horses (mares and geldings) at the Bundeschampionate. Don Frederico was rated by the German Equestrian Federation as the second most valuable sport horse breeding stallion of 2005, based on his Breeding Value Index of 174 points, with an assurance of 89% heritability.

In 2009 he was awarded the Grande Prize of the Hanoverian Verband in part because of the resounding success of offspring such as the internationally successful Grand Prix gelding, Don Johnson (mv Warkant) ridden by Isabell Werth, and the Olympic team silver medalist, Diva Royal (mv Warkant), ridden by Dorothee Schneider. Don Johnson and Isabell Werth have won many top CDNs and CDIs including the Grand Prix Special at the 2012 CHIO Aachen and the 2012 Vienna Masters CDI4* Grand Prix. The 10 yr. old mare, Diva Royal, and Dorothee Schneider made their debut at the Olympic Games and impressed everyone with a final Kur score of 81.661 placing 7th in the world.
