Beautiful Danish mare, movement beyond compare, bloodlines to back that up, best attitude. Suitable for an amateur, talent for a professional.

Currently on lease with option to purchase.

Kiss is under saddle with almost unbelievable ease. She retains everything she learns and builds on that each time we work with her. Most horses start with two steps forward and one step back. She skips the one step back part of training. She has a great work ethic, super attitude and a level of trust that defies description. All of that would be terrific on its own but then you add in the most incredible walk, trot, canter and you have a package and a half! This lovely mare won't last long for sale. Come see her soon, once she starts showing she is going to attract a lot of attention! We have a full veterinary record disclosure policy on our horses. We're happy to share everything since birth.

Kiss is starting to do the prelinary work towards jumping 12/31/21:

Kiss went to her into her first show under saddle on 12/5/21, a wonderful first experience at a terrific facility, Vintage Valley Sporthorses in Catlett, VA. She was such a solid citizen. She traveled by herself, and handled all the activities and energy in stride! She placed 2nd of 5 in Introductory level test A with a score of 66.875% and 5th of 8 in Introductory level test B with a score of 65.937%

Kiss, is a wonderful addition to the Wildest Expectations Farm band. She has very versatile bloodlines both top and bottom. This young prospect shows great promise as a as a performance horse or a broodmare. Kiss continues the foundation bloodlines on the mare side for Wildest Expectations Farm from Nelly Des Ongrais (Demon Noir). We are very proud of the horses we have been producing since 1995 and Kiss continues to improve our program! This is a young horse to keep an eye on for a bright future!

Her sire, Solos Landtinus was imported to Denmark from Germany as a three year old in 1998. Already licensed in Germany as an Oldenburg, he was presented at the Danish Warmblood Stallion license at Herning and was selected as the first place stallion. At the 100 day test, despite falling ill as the test began, he was the overall winner. He scored highest in dressage and third in showjumping. He was awarded Elite Stallion in 2003 and was selected Danish Stallion of the Year in 2005.

Her dam, I'dbedelighted, was the High Scoring Elite Selle Francais in the 1996 Foal Evaluations for the United States, Mexico and Canada. Del also placed first at Dressage at Devon in the Selle Francais Classes in 1996, 1997 and 1998 as well as third place in her open class at Dressage at Devon in 1999 as a three year old. Del passes along exceptional conformation and natural balance.
