2012 UPDATE: Romantica is in foal to the top producing stallion Sir Donnerhall, due at the end of April 2013.
2013 UPDATE: Scarlett LS was born in May, a gorgeous chestnut filly by Sir Donnerhall. She is just a lovely girl, with a sweet nature, excellent conformation and elastic uphill movement. She was named Premium and Foal of Distinction by the GOV in October. As we love this filly so much, we have decided to breed Tika again for a 2015 foal.
2015 UPDATE: This time Romantica had a chestnut colt, Sebastian LS. He is very friendly and similar to his sister in looks and conformation. We will be keeping him until he is ready to start under saddle.
2017 UPDATE: Romantica is in foal to the gorgeous young stallion FINEST. She is due early June 2018.
Romantica is by the gorgeous Grand Prix stallion RUBIN ROYAL, 2001 Supreme Oldenburg Champion. One of the very best of Rohdiamant's sons out of a Grundstein II/ Akzent II mare, and a full brother to Blue Hors Romanov, Rubin Royal was licensed in 1999 and had a very successful stallion test in 2000. In 2001 he was awarded the 1a Premium Stallion for the outstanding quality of his first foal crop in Oldenburg. He has sired 25 licensed stallions, and his offspring are known for their high rideability, elegance and elastic movement. Rubin Royal's sire, the legendary ROHDIAMANT has proven to be an outstanding producer as well as being a very successful Grand Prix dressage horse. Rohdiamant is undoubtably the most outstanding RUBINSTEIN I son.
