Pedigree profile of Sissi von Nymphenburg (Imp Hann)

D.O.B 31/05/2014 - Sezuan x Don Gregory x Bolero 

Sissi, whom Rivendell Stud acquired at the hannoverian Auction in August 2014, is by the Danish stallion Sezuan.   

Sezuan is a World Champion! With a score of 10.0 for his canter – the highest score that can be given, 9.6 for his elastic trot as well as his ground-covering walk, 9.9 for his outstanding dressage ability and 9.7 for his suppleness and athleticism.  There was no doubt that Sezuan deserved the crown in the class for five-year old dressage horses at the 2014 World Championships under Dorothee Schneider.

Ever since being licensed in Denmark in 2012, Sezuan has been the most talked about stallion in the world.  The pedigree of his sire, Blue Hors Zack, combines extremely valuable bloodlines through Rousseau, Jazz and Belisar.  He was a champion stallion not only in the Netherlands, but also in Denmark.  In 2010 he qualified for the National Danish Championships with a score of 9.22.  His offspring make him omnipresent: at the Danish licensing in 2013 he was again the sire of the Champion stallion after his son triumphed the year before, too.  His daughters dominate Elite Broodmare shows.

Sezuan’s dam is a gold medal mare, who was awarded Mare of the year in Denmark.  The damsire, Blue hors Don Schuffro, a son of Donnerhall, is a stallion with a lot of influence in dressage breeding.  He won team bronze under Andreas Helgstrand with the Danish team at the Olympic games in HongKong.

Sezuan’s granddam is a bronze medal mare.

Sezuan passed his stallion performance test in 2012 in Denmark with scores never awarded before.  He was given the score of 10.0 ten times!

In 2013 Sezuan continued his success by becoming the Danish Champion stallion with 10.0 for his walk and canter and a 9.5 for his trot.

Following this, he went on to become the best four year old dressage horse in Denmark at the competition Odense.  Here he was again awarded the dream score of 10.0 for his trot, canter and rideability as well as a 8.9 for his walk.  With a total score of 9.68, the title was rightfully his.

Sezuan’s offspring are eye-catching with their long legs and exceptional paces.  His foals are dominating at shows and auctions in Germany as well as abroad.

Sissi’s dam, a state premium mare, was herself successful up to prix st Georg dressage before retiring to stud.  She is by the stallion Don Gregory who is by Donnerhall.

Don Gregory unites the inherited values of DLG champion, Donnerhall, with Graphit bloodlines in an exemplary manner. The dam, Granate, also produced two other approved stallions, Playboy and Don Graphit. The great granddam, Heimat, was a successful Grand Prix horse. Don Gregory was highly successful under Martina Hannover, winning or placing up to Grand Prix free style. Don Gregory is also a model of quality of movement, rideability values, and offspring that satisfied even the most demanding, Don Gregory regularly supplies top horses to the auctions in Vechta, among others the approved stallion Day Dream (DM 360,000), the 1996 winner of the stallion performance test in Medingen, Don Rubino.  (DM 235,000), approved Don Dario Fo (DM 151,000) or Dark Dream (DM 130,000). The latter became the 1998 Reserve Champion Mare in Rastede. In 2000, Don Gregory's striking black son, Davidoff E, out of a Rubinstein dam, became the brilliant German Champion of three year old stallions and won the approval in Oldenburg. His son Don Davidoff became world champion at the 2002 World Championship for Young Horses, with a score of 10 for rideability. Daughter Donna Gina, was Devon/USA - champion mare of the Oldenburg Horse Breeders' Society.
