SOLD to Patricia Laurin, See
you in the GP ring Patti!
Southlanes Sierra, born at 4:00 Am June 9th and standing
inside 15 minutes. A very strong and correct beautiful looking filly.
We are not sure we have ever produced such a powerful foal before,
maybe only Ginger, Riviera's foal from last year. Sierra has perfect
conformation and good gaits.
Her dam Riviera
was the 2006 Canadian Champion Mare in both the open Hanoverian
and the Canadian bred Hanoverian Mare shows in Canada in 2005 and
was also Hanoverian Mare Performance test winner. Riviera is a lovely
athletic mare, with a hugh canter. Riviera will stay in our breeding
program due to her genetic backround from her mother and will be
a supplier of foals for many years to come.
Riviera's sire, Raphael,
needs no introduction of course, he has advanced to a stallion of
world repute, top international riders value the quality of Raphael
offspring. These include Ramina, Ricci, Rockefeller, Raphaelo, Robinson
and many more. Raphael has proved himself numerous approved sons,
such as: performance test winners Ravallo and Ragazzo; Radiator,
ridden by rene Tebbel is currently one of the most successful stallions
in international showjumping; and Canada's own Rio Grande, who himself
won his performance test, and shows very successfully in international
showjumping, qualifying for the 1996 Olympics.
amazed everyone with his quick leg, technique and scope at the 2001
Stallion Licensing, where he won the Winergy Best Jumper, and the
title "Premium Stallion". A 1999 16H 1" dark bay
stallion, Stolzenberg proved his performance under saddle and was
Reserve Champion of the 2002 Stallion Performance Test with a score
of 132.26, 114.6 in dressage (10) and, of course, winning the jumping
section 141.88. His sire, Stakkato, is the top-listed jumping horse
sire for competition horses in Germany.
On Stolzenberg's dam side, the stallion Sandro has
also been a considerable success, with three of his progeny competing
at the 1994 WEG in The Hague – Sandro Song (Ante Smlesa),
Safari (Michael Abo) and Paradiso (Rolf-Göran Bengtsson). Sandro
is the sire of more than 40 licensed sons, the most successful being
Silvio 1 and II, Sandro Song, Sao Paulo, Sandro Boy and Salido Z.

Stephens), Sagrat (Guy Goosen), Sakrus (Debbie Winkler), Sympathico
