St.Pr.H.Destemona * De Niro x St.Pr.H.Grand Madam / Gernegross xx

Registered with the German Hanoverian Verband
16.1 hands | Black homozygous | Born in 1997 | Imported from Germany
Approved for breeding with the German Hanoverian Verband and the RPSI

St.Pr.Destemona has joined our broodmare band in 2011. She is daughter to the legend sire De Niro, Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2008. She brings to our breeding program her excellent mareline and four generations of State's Premium Mares.

St.Pr.Destemona is the true expression of kindness and good mind. Always behaving good (well... almost always!), she travels well and is generally at ease in all situations. She is a real gem to have around. On the exterior, Mona displays a good topline and a lovely well put together neck. Her gaits are truly ones of a De Niro daughter. At her four weeks Mare Performance Test in Verden, Germany, Mona was given all 8's for her interior (character, temperament, dispositions) as well as for scope over fence and rideability.

St.Pr.Destemona comes from the Marzibilla damline, wich among others, is responsible for the showjumper star Stakkato (by Spartan), the upcoming showjumping star Messenger, the licencing Champion and dressage stallion Feuerspiel (by Fidertanz) and the Young Rider European Champion and Vice-Champion Highway (by Hohenstein). We talk about Destemona's first daughter, the Elite Mare Hochkarat, in the Nov/Dec 2010 Warmbloods Today's edition!

De Niro, SPS Destemona's sire, is an Elite Hanoverian stallion by Donnerhall x Akzent II x Wiesenbaum xx. De Niro was ranked first on the WBFSH Dressage Sire list for 2012 and 2013. His offspring has been most successful at Grand Prix level the past year... and for a while! Read the article from Eurodressage...

De Niro. Number one on the WBFSH dressage stallion ranking. Sire of our broodmare SPS Destemona.

SPS Destemona'a mare line is very attractive. Destemona's dam, the State Premium mare Grand Madam, gave birth to few other foals in her broodmare career, like Warantus (1992 by Weltmeyer) who according to the information we got, competed successfully up to Prix St.George, and Wanderfürst 2 (1993 also by Weltmeyer), who in 2012, was still in Germany's FN rankings, for results at Elementary level (he was 19 yo in 2012). But the most interesting sibling of Destemona is the State Premium daughter of Grand Madam, SPS Wachau (by Weltmeyer) born in 1991. SPS Wachau was bred several times to Hohenstein, and gave birth to many foals. To name a few:

- Highway, 1996 gelding, who even after going blind, went on to be European Vice-Champion with her young rider Thea Felicitas Muller at the European Young Riders Championships in 2008, scoring up to 76.3%! They were also part of the Vice-Champion Team in 2009.

- State Premium Helena, 1998 mare, who qualified for the Bundeschampionates in 2003 and went on to achieve a respectable 7.8. SPS Helena also qualified her rider Sigi Behr as a reserve for Germany for the World Dressage Championships for Young Horses. The quality of horses seen at this event is very high, as can reveal the names of the horses who took the three first places: French Kiss, Baroncelli and Fürst Heinrich!

- St.Pr.A.Helline, 2002 mare, ridden in 2011 and 2012 by Anne-Sophie Fiebelkorn (who used to ride Callaho's Benicio), in Prix St-Georges and Intermediaire I (2012) and finished 3rd at a Nürnberger Burgpokal qualification in 2011. Helline was previously ridden by the spanish rider Juan Perez.

Satisfaction HGB by Samarant - 2006 - DE 431310013306

16.1 1/2hh dark bay Hanoverian gelding, bred by the late Hans-Guenter Berner in Germany. Imported to United States and successfully showing in Hunters since 2012. Satisfaction was the 2015 US Junior Hunter Championship Reserve Champion 16-17 & Large Junior Hunter Grand Champion Children's Horse/pony with 14 yr old rider, as well as 4th in USHJA National Derby with rider Molly Sewell-Schott at Brandywine Lexington, KY. In July 2014, Victoria Press and Satisfaction rode away with the Large Junior 15 & Under Hunter division championship during the Kentucky Summer Horse Show. The next week, Victoria Press and Satisfaction, owned at that time by Peakwood Pharm, started the opening day of Junior Hunters at the Kentucky Horse Park with a win over fences and followed it up with a win in the under saddle class.

Satisfaction has been extremely successful in the Conformation Hunters with rider Molly Sewell, and since teaming up with Victoria Press during the Winter Equestrian Festival, Satisfaction has been racking up the successes in the Large Junior Hunters as well. "He's really, really sweet," said Victoria Press. "You have to be really soft with him. If you let him just canter down the lines and let him do it on his own that's when he's the best."
