Bonne Fête

(Buckingham/Certus)

Little River Hanoverians, in Nova Scotia, Canada, is pleased to offer the following filly for sale.  Born July 1st (Canada's 150th Birthday!!), this very flashy, TALL, filly made her entrance.  She is as feminine as they come.

Sired by young Dutch stallion Buckingham (Bordeaux x Rousseau). Under saddle he thoroughly accomplished the expectations and it was no surprise that he became the best dressage horse of his stallion performance test with a breeding value of 154 for dressage. His three fantastic basic gaits and his constant willingness to perform were rated with outstanding grades and the test riders were absolutely delighted: he got a 9,5 for his rideability. See a video of Buckingham here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=34&v=Rf1PyIxmSPA

 

This sportiness is no coincidence. Buckingham´s father Bordeaux was placed 4th at the World Championships of Young Dressage Horses with Eva Möller. And the dam´s sire Rousseau came second in these Championships in 2003 as well.

 

The dam, MSB Cindy by Certus x Welfenschatz, is a proven broodmare with offspring in the hunter/jumper rings and also in the dressage arena. Her offspring are noted for their athletic ability and are very rideable. Cindy, is also a dual-purpose mare showing good movement, a very easy going temperament and passes these desirable traits on. She has a tendency to throw height, and also her powerful hind end. Her sire, Certus is an Oldenburg stallion by Caprilli (Calypso I), who showcases his talent in both the dressage and jumper rings. Certus descends from Ninette, who is the dam of the monumental Donnerhall. Certus completed his performance testing in 1995 where he received a 134.28 in dressage and a 118.42 in jumping for an overall 131.02 (2nd place). On the dam side, the sire Welfenschatz (owned by the late Fritz Floto) is well noted for competing in Grand Prix show jumping. Welfenschatz’s sire, Walhall, competed in the dressage ring.

 

This foal is very exciting as there have been a few noted crosses from Buckingham out of C-line mares (which earned top price at auctions in Europe!) 

SOLD - We are thrilled to announce that Bonnie will be making beautiful Virginia her new home!  Her new owner Kerri fell in love with her and saw her potential.  I look forward to seeing their journey up the levels! Congratulations!
