We were very fortunate to be able to purchase this lovely mare at the Vetcha elite fall auction in 2009. SAVANNAH is the direct full sister to Kempke Hof's top sire SANSISCO. SAVANNAH is extremely beautiful with a sensible willing temperament. She floats across the ground with elastic and rhythmic strides. She was Broodmare performance tested with a total index of 7.21.
UPDATE: Savannah had a very successful 2011 showing training level dressage. She was:
- Victoria-Saanich Cadora year end Training level Open champion.
- LIEC year end Training level Open champion.
- LIEC year end Open Reserve Highpoint.
- Training Open champion at both Gold shows entered with scores to 75%.
- UPDATE: Savannah had another excellent year showing in 2012, this time at 1st level. She was:
- Victoria-Saanich Cadora 1st level Open Champion (70.5% average)
- Victoria-Saanich Cadora Overall Open Champion
- LIEC 1st level Open Champion (75% average)
- LIEC Overall Open Champion
2014 UPDATE: Savannah is in foal to one of our favorite stallions, Furstenball, due July 2015.
2015 UPDATE: Savannah foaled in late July, a stunning colt. Ferrazzi LS (Ferris) looks so much like his dam, but you can certainly see his sire there too. He was named Premium and Foal of Distinction at his GOV inspection. We will be keeping him until he is ready to start under saddle.
SAVANNAH is by the hugely popular Oldenburg stallion SANDRO HIT. Himself a National Young Horse Champion and Young Dressage World Champion, his offspring are breaking price-records, winning championships and are Stallion Approval Champions. To date he has sired over 65 approved stallions. This beautiful black stallion has brilliant type and top quality movement. He has started a new era in the dressage ring and is already writing sporting and breeding history. SANDRO HIT's sire SANDRO SONG was Oldenburg Champion Young Stallion and Main Premium Champion. His dam, Elite mare LORETTA, also produced the Reserve World Champion and the ReserveYoung Horse Champion DIAMOND HIT and the Premium stallion ROYAL HIT. LORETTA's sire RAMINO was Stallion Performance Test Champion and 5 times Italian Champion. LORETTA's grandsire WELT AS has been a very influential stallion, siring 14 Approved sons and many top performers, among those the Olympic Champion BONFIRE.
SAVANNAH's dam ROSENFEE is by ROHDIAMANT, the 1990 brown German Oldenburg stallion, who has a radiant presence and extravagant movement. ROHDIAMANT's dam ELEKTIA's pedigree contains a successful Oldenburg line that has more than 70 years of success. ROHDIAMANT's sire, RUBINSTEIN I, has been described as the "Sire of the Century." ROHDIAMANT has had a distinguished career, winning the Oldenburg stallion approval in 1992 and then in 1993, earning the Reserve Champion title of his 100 Day Test with a phenomenal dressage index of 150 points.
In 1994, ROHDIAMANT was the winner of the Main Premium in Oldenburg, and in 1995, was the Bundeschampion of 5 year old dressage horses. From 1996-2002, ROHDIAMANT competed to the highest levels of international dressage.
On the basis of his numerous licensed sons (42), Champion and Reserve Champion stallions, States Premium and Brilliantring mares, top auction horses and Bundeschampions, ROHDIAMANT can be designated a trademark stallion. To his offspring he passes on his type, rideability and above all his enormous movement dynamics.
