Nakoma is a special colt as he is by the stallion Rivendell Numerology, who was exported to Ireland in 2020 to continue competing there at open level with his owner and rider Peter Morrison.
Flintheart is the full brother to Rivendell Copycat, who was sold as a foal and so pretty and perfect that I had to repeat the mating. Flintheart was born and proved me right once again.
Whenever an offspring is born of one of stallions who has passed away thanks to frozen semen, it is a very surreal moment. In the case of Chicha, this was the same as she is by Rivendell Sirandipity who was one of my best friends.
Berlioz is the first foal of the imported mare Godiva van Essene and part of the second crop of foals by Rivendell Braveheart, who is by the stallion Balou du Rouet, who is among the top ten sires for both show-jumping and eventing in the world.
Dageraad Britta does it again and produces an outstanding foal. Stromboli is exceptional in every way possible. He is tall, uphill, elastic, friendly, correct and beautiful. Being by the international stallion Sir Donnerhall is also in his favor!
Rivendell Quasimodo is by imported frozen semen of the stallion Quintender, who has proven himself as an international showjumping superstar as well as having produced numerous successful youngsters as well. Two other Rivendell horses by Quintender are Rivendell Quicksilver, who is licensed by the SAWHS, as well as Rivendell Quintessential, who is owned by Nicola Sime-Riley and is pre-licensed with the SAWHS.
Maui is the last foal out of imported State premium mare Maigirl, owned by Stafford Robinson. She will be retained for breeding purposes. Maigirl produced several great foals including Berghof Eragon and Rivendell Bordeaux. Maigirl is by the stallion Metternich, probably the best son of Matcho AA.
Hermès is a striking black colt by Highflyer. Highflyer is an imported Hanoverian stallion who has produced several successful offspring in South Africa already. He is by the stallion Blu Hors Hotline, who has proven his worth in international dressage and as a breeding stallion. In 2016, he had places at the CDIs in Drachten, Herning, Hagen, Odense and Ålborg, as well as a 3rd place with the Danish dressage team at the CDIO in Aachen.
Gypsy is a strikingly beautiful dark bay filly. She is the first foal of Gaia and we would like to retain her for the stud. She is by the imported Hanoverian stallion Highflyer, who is by Blue Hors Hotline, who has proven his worth in international dressage and as a breeding stallion.
Figaro has been my dream for many years, as his dam, StPrSt Delovely was the first horse I produced from prenovice to advanced dressage. She was my best friend for many years before having to be retired due to injury. She is also not able to maintain her own pregnancies and several attempts at Embryo transfer have been unsuccessful. Till this one!!!! Figaro is the result of a successful embryo transfer.
