Dam: Renaissance by Royal Diamond
2016 Brown Oldenburg GOV Filly
Born March 24, 2016 via embryo transfer
This gorgeous filly is the cream of the crop. She has a terrific personality: extremely sweet and trusting. Handled daily, she already leads on a halter, stands for the farrier, and has been in both a stall and a field with no stress. She is maturing extremely well and is getting stronger every day. She has marvelous uphill trot with big rounded knees, excellent overall balance and she has a considerable, ground covering canter. Her walk is good: ground covering with an excellent overstep. She will be an asset to any program, perfect for an amateur or professional looking for a FEI young horse prospect. We estimate she will develop 16.1 - 16.2 at maturity. She was born March 24, 2016 via embryo transfer and is shown here with her surrogate dam.
The premium stallion Franziskus impressed the spectators at the Westphalian licensing in 2010. He has a brilliant type and a great frame, as well as harmonious and correct conformation.
His basic gaits are nearly perfect: he walks with diligence and rhythm, he trots with impulsion and he canters uphill.
It was clear from the beginning that Franziskus was a talented horse. As a foal, he impressed people with his outstanding movement and character and won the qualification for the German foal championships. In 2011, Franziskus successfully completed the 30-days-test in Münster-Handorf: he received a score of 9.0 for trot, canter and rideabilty in the training, and a 9.5 for his character. The test rider gave him 9.5 points for rideability.
Continuing his life of success, Franziskus soon became Bundeschampion of the 4-year-old riding stallions with top marks when he was presented by both his own and by foreign riders in 2012. The Olympic rider Ingrid Klimke began riding Franziskus in the end of 2013 and was victorious with him in his first dressage class for youngsters at "M-level" (the highest class 6-year-olds can compete in Germany). In the beginning of 2015, Franziskus started in his first "S-dressage" and was placed.
Franziskus' sire Fidertanz began his career by winning the Westphalian licensing and the 30 day test in Neustadt/Dosse. He was runner up at the Bundeschampionat and was the main premium award winner in 2006. Since then, Fidertanz has placed in many advanced dressage classes.
Renaissance (Royal Diamond / Fürst Heinrich) is a premium Oldenburg GOV mare. In 2015, her first two foals were named Stallion Prospects and Foals of Distinction. She is a lovely mare with a lovely head, well set neck and clean throatlatch. Her lovely suspension and drive from behind personifies the "R" line movement. She has an excellent walk.
Royal Diamond, a son of Rubinstein and full brother of Rohdiamant, is an ideal type who is simply riveting, known for his model movement, quality and rideability. Nearly 40 of Royal Diamond’s offspring have competed at the highest level of dressage. He has sired seven licensed sons and fifteen State Premium mares. Royal Diamond was the clear winner of his performance test in Neustadt/Dosse with a score of 140.65 (150.93 dressage). In 1998 he was the Reserve Champion Stallion at the Main Premium in Oldenburg. He was 1999’s Vice Champion of five-year-old dressage horses.
Renaissance’s dam, Frederica (Fürst Heinrich/Relevant), has produced four Premium Foals, including two Foals of Distinction. Fürst Heinrich won his 30 day stallion test at Münster/Handorf and was World Young Horse Champion in 2003. This extraordinary sire produced over 30 licensed stallions and more than 50 state premium mares. He may be best known as the sire of Oldenburg Champion Stallions Fürstenball and Van the Man.
