By For Romance out of a 17hh Ster Keur eligible mare by Desperado
The dressage mare Kalamata Dream (Desperado) is a well-developed , long-legged dressage type with a good topline. Her walk is supple and has good reach. Her trot shows good technique and is supple with sufficient power. Her canter is also light-footed and balanced. She earned her ster and keur eligible predicate and was awarded with the high score mature dressage horse.
For Romance – the epitome of a model sire – and from a Voltaire dam line that has been accorded great success. Blessed with three excellent gaits, his canter and trot can only be described with superlatives and his character is also noteworthy. He stood out brilliantly in the strong lot of stallions at the 2011 Oldenburg Verband licensing and the enthusiastic spectators in Vechta gave him standing ovations.
As expected, For Romance passed his 30-day test in Schlieckau with super scores. He received a 9.25 for his trot and rideability, a 9.0 for his canter and an 8.88 for character.
In the third generation of his pedigree you find Don Schufro who took the Danish Champion title and won team bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong under Andreas Helgstrand/DEN. He is also the sire of many champions.
For Romance's dam line goes back to Voltaire, a Furioso II son who was well-known in breeding and sport the world over. This line is also the origin of the licensed stallions Dusty, Furinos and Platino as well as many international sport horses that were highly successful in show jumping as well as dressage.
His sire, Fürst Romancier, was licensed in 2007 and made headlines just two years later when he took fourth place in the World Championships for young dressage horses in the class for five year olds and also fourth place at the Bundeschampionate in Warendorf. Matthias Alexander Rath has taken over Fürst Romancier's training.
In 2012, For Romance’s full sister Fasine took the Oldenburg Champion Mare title – a feat that is so far unique in the history of the Oldenburg Verband.
The dam's sire, Sir Donnerhall I, gained trademark status early on in his career. He was the 2nd Reserve Champion at his licensing, State Champion, the record-breaking winner of his stallion performance test, Vice World Champion of young dressage horses and Bundeschampion as well as the main premium winner of stallions with emphasis on dressage. More than 50 of his sons have been licensed. In 2010, three of his progeny took Vice Bundeschampion titles in Warendorf: Silbermond – the NRW Champion Stallion, Appassionata and the licensed Snap Shot. He has also siree numerous top auction horses.
Desperado is an honest and reliable stallion with a very good attitude. He has a real willingness to work and was the highest scoring stallion in his performance test with 89.5 His trot is uphill with good use of the foreleg and the canter is powerful, uphill and has good scope. Desperado has a lot of flexibility, a very good attitude and a good balance. Desperado adds movement technique and flexibility to the dressage horse.
Performance - At his performance test, Desperado scored 89.5, including a 9.5 for the canter. At the World Championships in Verden, Desperado was 7th in the 5-year-old final with a score of 16.6, and 8th in the 6-year-old final on a score of 8.3. He is now competing successfully at national level at PSG and Inter I.
Progeny - Desperado is the sire of four licensed sons, among them the hugely exciting Ibiza (from a Jazz x Contango mare) who blew the audience away at his Oldenburg licensing. His oldest offspring are turning five in 2017, among them several Oldenburg premium foals, and we will watch them with interest.
