Dionysus ESH is a coming 3 year old Hanoverian gelding by Devon Heir out of a Wolkentanz II mare. He is currently 16.2 and will mature 16.3+. He's doing all the things a young horse should. Dino, as we call him, cross ties, bathes, clips, loads and trailers well - even when his buddies leave he will stand quietly on the trailer by himself, and ground drives. Dino is charming, inquisitive, and brave without being dull.
Dionysus ESH is by the impressive stallion, Devon Heir. He is by De Niro, unarguably the best son of Donnerhall, and out of a direct Rubinstein daughter. Devon Heir is everything you would expect from his breeding: beauty, super temperament, top movement, and unbeatable character. He was the highest scoring Hanoverian of his 100 day performance test and the winner of the American Hanoverian Society licensing. He won numerous USDF Breeders Championships and climbed the levels up to Prix St. George with excellent scores with a young rider. His successes with a young rider demonstrates his phenomenal character and rideability! His foals are not just for the dressage ring, as he has multiple successful hunters to his credit as well.
He's out of the Oldenburg mare, Wolkentina. She is by Wolkentanz II, one of the best sons of "Stallion of the Century" Weltmeyer. Wolkentina was presented for Hanoverian breeding approval in Fall 2021 and received an "8" for her neck and "9" for her head, with excellent compliments from the inspectors.
Dino will make an exceptional mount for an AA or JR with his easy going nature but is talented enough to be enjoyable for a pro.
