A beautiful filly with exceptional bloodlines, bred for dressage not just on the sire line but with an exceptional mare line.

Sire: Feidertanz Dam: Dancing Queen


Fidertanz (1) Fidermark (2) Florestan I (3) Fidelio
Watonga Werther
St Pr Elfe
St Pr. Reine Freude Ravallo (4) Raphael (5) (6)
St Pr. Fruhlingsonne Frulingstraum II
St Pr. Romana


(1) Fidertanz  was Champion stallion of the 14th Westphalian stallion licensing in 2004.

Vice Bunddeschampion in 2005 with a score of 9.5 from the outside rider.

In 2008 five of his first crop of foals were licensed.


(2) Fidermark was a performance test winner and Bundeschampion, Optimum and Grand Prix winner.

Right from the start, Fidermark was a star. He was the reserve champion of the 1994 Westfalien Stallion licensing, and then the following year, was the winner of the Performance Test with 141.74 points at Warendorf. And the year after that he won the four year old stallion class at the Bundeschampionate! He achieved all this with the state stud rider, Michael Farwick.
When some of the Westfalien stallions went to train with German dressage trainer, Johan Hinnemann, the ride on Fidermark was given to the 23-year old Dutch rider, Marlies Van Baalen, daughter of Coby van Baalen, a long time rider with Hinnemann. It was about this time that the joke went round, what do the letters, NRW (the correct abbreviation for the breeding area North Rhine-Westaphalia) stand for? Netherlands Riding Westfaliens, came the answer…
Fidermark was by that stalwart of Westfalien breeding, Florestan. His dam, Watonga is by the Hanoverian ‘trot maker’ Werther. Mated with Power she produced Palegro, a licensed stallion who represented Westphalia at the German Showjumping championships.
With Marlies van Baalen in the saddle, Fidermark qualified for the 2000 Nurnberg Burgpokal Finals, and went on to compete at Grand Prix level. In his way-too-short period of time at stud, Fidermark produced an astonishing number of excellent progeny – stamping himself as the best son of Florestan
“Fidermark - that for me is the perfect horse. He is pretty, you saw him ridden by a twenty year old girl, doing all the Grand Prix movements, and he produces really good offspring," said Jo Hinnemann
At the time of his death, Fidermark had produced 21 licensed sons, including Fürst Piccolo (Westfalien licensing winner in 1999, and performance test winner the following year), Feinsinn, Fiderwind, and Fiano.
His gelding son Furst Fabio won 3-year old at the Bundeschampionate before moving to the United States with his owner, Cesar Parra... but not before Hubertus Schmidt who trained the horse said he was the best he had ridden. Fidermark also sired the auction highlight Farwick, who was sold to Rudolf Zeilinger for 160,000 €.
More recently, the stallion, Farewell III won the 2007 Six Year old dressage championship at the Bundeschampionate, after being 2nd in the 3 year old stallion class, 4th in the Four year olds, and a finalist in the 5 Year Old Dressage class. Fidertanz won the 2004 Westfalien stallion licensing, and then the performance test, and was reserve champion at the Bundeschampionate. Another Fidermark son, Falsterbo is about to compete in Grand Prix dressage after successful appearances on the small tour.


(3)Florestan I was champion of the 1988 Rhineland approval and won his performance test in Warendorf the following year. As a sire, Florestan I has been an instant success, and has already sired over 20 approved sons, included Fidermark, a four-year-old champion at the Bundeschampionate and a Grand Prix performer, now sadly deceased. The mare, Ferrara won the five year old class at the Bundeschampionate and went on to compete at Prix St Georges level with Isabell Werth. At the 2002 Bundeschampionate, Florestan had 5 representatives including the 4-year-old stallion winner, French Kiss. French Kiss went on to win the World Young Dressage Horse championship for 6 year olds in 2004, while another Florestan son, Florencio won the 5 year old title at the same show!

Florestan's grandsire was the famous Furioso II


 Furioso II was out of the great mare, Dame de Renville, who produced a series of wonderful horses when mated with Furioso. The first of these was Mexico, who standing at the French National Stud of Le Pin, sired 20 approved sons, 20 dams of stallions, and famous international showjumping horses, including Laeken, Jexico de Parc and Heur de Bratand. His son, Le Mexico, has been a hugely influential sire of jumping horses in Holland.

Furioso II was approved for the Oldenburg studbook in 1967, and then went on to easily win his 100 day test. Later he was approved for Hannover, Rhineland, Hessen and Westfalia. For many years, Furioso II was ranked in the top three sires of leading money winners in Germany. Furioso II had winners in all disciplines. His showjumping stars included: FBI (with Thomas Frühmann), Heissman (ridden by Eric Van Der Vleuten, then Michael Matz) and For Pleasure.
Heissman under his original name, Friesengeist was sold to the stables of Henk Nooren, who later sold him to the United States, when ridden by Michael Matz he was Horse of the Year, and 4th at the Barcelona Olympics.
For Pleasure was originally ridden by Lars Nieberg, and under his guidance won team gold at Atlanta, before the ride was transferred to Marcus Ehnning. For Pleasure is already the sire of eight licensed Hanoverian stallions, and was a member of the gold medal winning German team at the Sydney Olympic Games.
Perhaps Furioso II’s most influential son is
Voltaire - out of a mare by another classic sire of jumping horses, Gotthard. Voltaire is the sire of 33 approved sons and top jumpers like Finesse and Altaire.
In dressage, his son, Purioso is the sire of numerous stars including Anky van Grunsven’s Grand Prix horse Cocktail (who is the sire of Jazz); Le Mexico is the sire of
Ulft, who in turn is the sire of Ferro. The Oldenburg stallion Welt As is out of a Furioso II daughter, and is the sire of Anky’s gold medallist Bonfire and Christine Stückelberger’s Grand Prix horse, STC Diamond.


(4) Ravallo also won his performance test with a dressage index of 157.52 and overall index of 155.

His dam, grand dam and great grand dam are all state premium and the dam line has produced numerous licensed sons and advanced competition horses.



(5)Raphael 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. The gelding Millcreek's Raphael is an extreamly successful showjumper under Eric lamaze.

Raphael is by the famous show jumping stallion Ramiro Z

Ramiro Z

(6) Ramiro Z In a lifespan of thirty years, the "preferent" G Ramiro Z's performance as a sporthorse and breeding sire earned him the titles 'Stallion of the Century' and "King of Sires."

Ramiro was one of the first stallions to appear in the sport. During his own sporting career, he had numerous wins at all levels of show jumping - Nations Cups, Puissance (jumping over 2.2 metre!) and in international Grand Prix competition.

Ramiro was the most popular distributor of the Ramzes blood and the most frequented sire in Germany. He stood at stud in Westfalia, Holstein, Zangersheide and Holland. Numerous sons and daughters conserve and pass on the valuable genes that stand for rideability and jumping talent. Therefore, it is not a surprise to find Ramiro's children and grandchildren at the top levels of showjumping and dressage.

Grande produced 33 approved sons, 34 states premium mares and sent three of his showjumping progeny to the Olympic Games – Grande Giso (Holland), Grande (USA) and Gute Sitte (Belgium).
His grand children seem to have been the real stars – Galapagos with Gabriella Grillo represented Germany at the 1982 World Championships, and was one of the first stars of the ‘new’ class, Freestyle Dressage to Music. Grandeur (Gralsritter) won over a million Deutschmarks in a spectacular showjumping career, and since then has proven himself as a superior sire. Grande’s son Graphit sired winners of over almost two million DM and sired one of the most important jumping stallions of them all, Grannus. The Graphit son, Grundstein was one of Germany’s leading stallions before his export to the United States. Another son, Graditz sired Isabell Werth’s Olympic and World Championship star, Garibaldi II sired the American dressage star Gifted who carried Carol Lavell to a team bronze at the 1992 Games and placed 4th individually. Garibaldi II died at the age of only 14 which was a great loss.
Grunnox (by Grunewald) was another top dressage horse, this time with Monica Theodorescu, and together they were members of the 1992 Gold Medal team in Barcelona.

Sire Line:




(6) Donnerhall is the most successful dressage horse in the world and looks back on an exemplary career. He managed like no other sire of his generation to combine success in breeding and in sport alike. In 1986 Donnerhall was the German DLG Champion in Hanover. After many wins in Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and freestyle classes at International level he became German champion in Mannheim with his constant rider Karin Rehbein in 1994, team world champion and individual bronze medal winner in The Hague. This was followed by another climax in 1997: Team gold and individual bronze at the European Dressage Championships in Verden. In 1998 he was once more included in the German world championship team and with Karin Rehbein was a member of the gold medal team in Rome, where he attained fourth place in the individual results. Donnerhall won the World Cup European League, as well as being the Oldenburg dressage stallion of the year in 1997 and 1998 respectively.

He is a prolific sire of dressage horses and has at least 60 who have competed internationally. Donnerhall's father Donnerweter was himself an International dressage horse. He has produced over 50 graded sons and 35 state premium mares.
