"Ember" is a top prospect for either the hunter or dressage arena. She has lofty yet flat kneed movement and a superb canter. She is people oriented, brave and knows she is something special.
Ember is by the 2021 Oldenburg VTV Stallion of the Year, Morricone. Morricone was the Oldenburg Main Premium winner at his licensing and was praised for his impression and ability. He won the dressage index at the 30-day test in Adelheidsdorf with a final score of 9.33. The judges gave the stunning stallion a 9.0 for his trot and canter and the highest possible score of 10.0 for his walk. Morricone unites an optimum noble and type, striking quality of movements, as well as, brilliant rideability and a strong kind character. In his stallion performance test he won superiorly the dressage part with a score of 9.33 and received the maximum score 10.0 for rideability and walk four times. All basic gaits as well as constitution, character, temperament and willingness to perform were praised with scores of 9.5 and 9.0. On the one hand this noble dancer impresses with three fantastic basic gaits, rhythm and a striking engagement of the hindquarters, but on the other hand is the rideability and the imperturbable strength of character, which is absolutely unique for such a youthful stallion. Morricone's offspring have exceeded all expectations. They stand out with their beautiful and noble type like they were all of a piece. Many champion foals as well as numerous price-highlights feature prominently well-known elite foal auctions and foal championships worldwide. From his first crop six licensed sons, including two premium stallions in Oldenburg and Hannover, made up a brilliant breeding record for Morricone. Remarkable is the excellent character of his offspring, which present themselves as very drawn to people, with strong nerves and easy to handle.
Ember is out of Zahnya- by Glorioso Noir and also from a proven damline in her own right. Zahnya, her dam and all of her siblings have all proven themselves in-hand including several National and Zone Championships. Several of her foals have been awarded accolades including site champion, foal of distinction, and Horse of the year. Zahnya was Oldenburg horse of the year in 2007, 2008, and 2009. She was 2020 USDF National Champion broodmare, 2020 National Champion Oldenburg, 2020 USEF Reserve National Champion Mature Horse and 2020 USEF Zone Champion. She also had multiple USEF PHR National and Zone Championships. Zahnya's Sire Glorioso Noir placed equally as well in the dressage and jumping portions of his 100-Day Stallion Test. He competed successfully in young horse dressage classes and went on to be a well decorated hunter, earning the title of 2007 AHS Regular Working Hunter Champion. True to the versatility in his pedigree, his offspring have exceled in multiple rings.
Ember is a suitable name only due to her fiery color- in temperament, she is cool as a cucumber and would be suitable for an adult amateur to bring along. She will be registered Oldenburg (GOV), and lifetime recorded with both USEF and USHJA. She is a solid filly and expected to mature 16.2+
