On Thursday, the son of our self-bred St.Pr.St.Shakyrah (by Branduardi M; owner: Sofie Botermann) "Hilkens D'Arco Baleno" (Dating AT x Branduardi M) (breeder and owner: Sabine Meiners) was crowned Champion Stallion at the Showcase of the Best in Neustadt-Dosse!
St.Pr.St. Shakyrah is also the dam of our Federal Reserve Champion Mare St.Pr.St.Sommermärchen WE (Dance Star AT x Branduardi M x Black Boy), who, just like Shakyrah, has also become the Champion Mare of the Elite Mare Show!
Furthermore our self-bred stallion "Destination" was also licensed on Saturday at the Weser-Ems licensing in Vechta.
Destination was the second foal of our St.Pr.St. Grazia WE, who, after finishing her successful career in sport and returning to our home stable as a broodmare, won the SLP as a three-year-old! She was 5th at the Bundeschampionat and then won bronze at the six-year-old dressage ponies. She won FEI tests with well over 70%. But not only on the mothers side of Destination there is dressage blood of the finest, because his father is Danny Gold T.
We congratulate Sabine Meiners to these two great stallions and wish her good luck for the future!
