2016 Chestnut Hanoverian Mare IN FOAL to STERNLICHT
Gorgeous filly by Furst Impression (Furst Heinrich / Regazzoni / Weltmeyer) and out of the mare, VT Kudos (Arrian/Weinstein)
Reserve filly at a very competitive Hanoverian inspection. Top 5 in the country in the 2017 Yearling Hanoverian Futurity. Reserve champion in the country for the 2018 Hanoverian Futurity!
Her sire, Furst Impression, is a fantastic stallion that is producing phenomenal sporthorse prospects. His bloodlines are like reading the "Who's Who" of Dressage stallions! Florestan l, Donnerhall, Rubinstein, Weltmeyer, Argentan - all wrapped up in one stallion! He finished his 100 day stallion testing at Paxton with a very impressive score of 122 points. His youngsters are eye-catching and wonderfully elastic, with talent for the dressage ring and over fences. More information, pictures, and video can be found at his farm's website, Dreamscape Farms.
Her dam, VT Kudos, is a very pretty registered Oldenburg mare, though she is 100% Hanoverian by breeding and approved into the Main Mare Book of the American Hanoverian Society. She is by Arrian (Al Capone/Orbis) and out of the mare, Champagne Flight (Weinstein/Furka). Al Capone was a highly regarded Celle stallion and member of the Celle Stallion Quadrille, while his sire, Argentan, was known for producing dressage and show jumping horses. Arrian scored 8's and 9's on character, temperament, and willingness to work in his performance test. He has competed successfully in breed shows, dressage, and hunters. After his first foal crop, the inspectors commented “it is hard for us to imagine a better first foal crop for any young stallion”. His foals have also included many top foals of inspections sites and breed show successes. Arrian's offspring have proven themselves under saddle, particularly his daughters who, by their Mare Performance Test results (together with inspections scores) have put Arrian among the AHS’S leading stallions for producing Elite Mares and Elite Mare Candidates. Arrian is produces outstanding movement and type in his foals and has offspring competing in dressage and hunters. More information, pictures, and video can be found on Kudo's page of our website.
She has huge, elastic gaits with lots of suspension. She uses her body well and will be very balanced athlete. Her head and neck are gorgeous and hard to fault. She is very correct and well developed for her age. She is very feminine in type and light on her feet. She loves to showoff in the pasture and we love to watch her!
This filly was imprinted from birth and is the sweetest girl. She is inquisitive and bold in the field. Everything we have presented her with she has picked up quickly. Sweet, mellow personality, enjoys scratches and interaction with people. Easy to handle and work with, very agreeable and learns new things quickly. This darling girl appears to be a great prospect for dressage or hunters. She is registered and branded with the American Hanoverian Society. She was the Reserve Top Filly at her very competitive Hanoverian inspection. The judges were very impressed with her!
Furst Fiona has also shown in the AHS Futurity in 2017 and 2018. As a yearling in 2017 she was 5th in the country and in 2018 as a two year old she was the Reserve Champion in the country!
Fiona had about 60 days training under saddle Summer 2019 and has been ridden intermittently between pregnancies. She has been a fabulous producer for us with foals by Rubignon, Sternlicht, and Fabriano.
She is in foal to Sternicht for an early 2024 foal.
