DAM: Esprentina NPF

Hank’s dam is Esprentina NPF, ”Tina” who is a 2009 KWPN dressage mare by the European stallion Sir Oldenburg (Sion/Contender) and out of an impressive Florestan/Phonix(Pilot) dam. This tall (16.3hh), extravagant mover is a lovely dressage mare through and through. She has a long swinging walk with an ample overtrack, an impressive trot with high knee action and a great reach through from behind. Best of all her canter is VERY uphill and is ground covering.

Tina is also out of a very strong damline and has been approved for Hanoverian breeding by the German Hanoverian Verband. Tina has produced five lovely foals which have gone on to sell at a young age to CA, NB, MD, NS, and PEI. Several were called into the Final Ring at their Hanoverian Inspection and two were named Top Champion Foal.

Dauphin has produced 514 German Hanoverian offspring as of the 2017 publishing of the Hanoveranner Hengst Book. Of the 112 mares that are in breeding, 27 of them were awarded the coveted States Premium Title. He has 6 licensed and recognized sons carrying on the line!

Dauphin has been known as a Celle favorite for a long time. He has a sweet disposition and has always been a gentleman to work with. He was the go-to stallion to open the door and let visitors in. Dauphin is on the Top list of the Hanoverian breed for type with an outstanding score of 132, and a 143 for limbs!

Dauphin’s legendary sire is Donnerhall, who is a Grand Prix Dressage horse that won 2 gold medals in the world equestrian games. There is a statue of Donnerhall in Oldenburg. His bloodline is known for strength of character and dressage ability.

Feiner Stern is Dauphin’s dam sire.

His first batch of foals brought 4 approved sons, among them Feinbrand, the first reserve champion and Fair Play, the 2nd reserve champion of the 1989 stallion approvals in Oldenburg.
