Leah is a tall young lady who should mature around 17H. She gets her lovely movement from both her sire, Lehnsritter, and her dam's sire, Riverman. She shows aptitude for either dressage or hunters, and we are looking forward to starting her this summer. Leah was high scoring mare at the 2011 RPSI Inspection. Photo by: Jessica Mendoza
Roxanne has the eye of an angel, and the personality to match. She should mature around 17H, and shows aptitude for either dressage or hunters. Could she be your next partner?
You will not find this combination of bloodlines in the US! You are familiar with Donnerhall and Fabriano, for those of you who are not familiar with Riccione (Regazzoni/Arogno/Bolero), let us introduce you:
Riccione was one of the most desirable candidates at the 1998 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing, making a strong impression with his gorgeous appearance and extravagant movements. He won riding horse tests and champions' finals with scores of 9.0 or higher. In his Stallion Performance Test he confirmed the expectations of the breeders by scoring the highest for rideability (guest judge score: twice 10.0) and became the Reserve Champion of the test. Riccione won several M-level classes and is trained at Grand Prix level.
He brings interesting and exciting blood through his dam, the State Premium Mare Arosa. She received the top score of 10.0 for rideability from the judges and guest judge riders in her Mare Performance Test. With the extraordinarily beautiful Trakehner, Arogno as sire and the Hanoverian foundation stallion Bolero as dam sire, Arosa carries classical dressage blood. Riccione's sire, our own Regazzoni, was the Champion of the Stallion Performance Test in Münster-Handorf and became Reserve Champion at the 1995 Bundeschampionate.
Riccione's offspring are impressive in type and movement. They are very popular at auctions in Hanover, Westphalia, Bavaria, and more. He has twelve licensed sons just from his first crop of foals; two of which were Reserve Licensing Champions and two reserve 30-day test champions. He also produced several Bundeschampionate finalists and State Premium Mares.
Furthermore, Riccione was highly placed in the NRW Heritability Index for stallions of his year of birth and in the German FN-Breeding Value Index. His statistics and competition results are very impressive for a 10-year old stallion.
