We were thrilled to be able to purchase the spectacular mare SUPER NOVA at the Spring Elite Oldenburg auction in Vetcha, Germany. NOVA has a sweet temperament combined with superior rideability and wonderful type. She has amazing power and push behind combined with lots of reach and freedom in her shoulder. NOVA will be ridden through the winter of 2007 and bred the spring of 2008.
NOVA is in foal to the DE NIRO son DANCIER, due May 16th, 2009. A link to his video.
UPDATE: Nova had a beautiful flashy chestnut filly at the end of May 2009. DAVINIA is very sweet, has tons of presence and lovely uphill movement. She was rated Premium by the GOV in August.
UPDATE: Nova is now in foal to Oldenburg Licensing Champion FURSTENBALL, due May 20th 2011.
UPDATE: Nova's darling filly Faberge (Gracie) was born at the end of May. This refined filly just springs off the ground, and she could not be sweeter. We are keeping this filly for a while to see how she develops.
UPDATE: Nova had a lovely colt by Diamond Stud in May 2016. He was awarded Premium at the GOV inspection in August.
Sadly we lost Super Nova in the fall of 2016. She is greatly missed, but we have kept her lovely daughter by Furstenball, Faberge LS.
