Sir James- imp. Hanov. stallion by Sir Donnerhall

Sir James is an imported fully licensed and approved Hanoverian stallion sired by Sir Donnerhall. Sir James is approved for breeding by the German Oldenburg Verband, The German Hanoverian Verband and the American Hanoverian Society and he would be eligible for full approval by many other warmblood breed societies upon presentation and application. Sir James' sire Sir Donnerhall needs no introduction and is famous in Europe for his amazing successes and produce record.

Sir James is out of a State Premium/Elite mare by Feiner Stern/Pik Bube. Sir James' damline has produced FEI dressage horses and many approved stallions, including the Champion of the 2017 Westphalian Stallion Licensing. Sir James did his 70 day stallion test in 2011 in Oklahoma.
He was the only three year old. He finished the test in 4th place overall with a score of 112.24, 3rd in the dressage and 7th in the jumping.
Highlights included 9.5 character and temperament, 9.0 trainability, 10 constitution, 8.6 trot, canter, rideability, walk and 8.25 cross
country. Sir James was shown in dressage in 2012, placing 1st in his first dressage test- First level test 2- 69.865%. He was also shown in hand where he was twice Stallion Champion, Mature Horse Champion and Show Reserve Grand Champion. He was the 2012 Year End American Hanoverian Society Champion Stallion. To date, 14 out of 18 foals presented to the GOV have been named PREMIUM with 3 Foals of Distinction and a stallion prospect named. A four year old gelding by Sir James was invited to the 2018 Young Horse National Championships with scores as high as 8.04. All of Sir James' offspring that we started under saddle have found wonderful homes with amateurs and professionals alike. They were very much volunteers under saddle with three good to very good gaits. One of them I consider to be world class (see video of Shpectrum). Sir James is for sale only because we are downsizing in anticipation of eventual retirement. We haven’t been riding him- we only have one rider at present and 17 horses going under saddle, most of them sales horses, so they take priority. He is 100% sound and able to be ridden- we just don’t have the time.
He is easy to collect (just needs time to talk to a girlfriend first), the semen is excellent quality and ships well with good longevity and motility. More videos are available upon request, and videos of his offspring can be found on my website.

Rolling Stone Farm

Warmblood breeder for 40 years. Owner of large Oldenburg (GOV) and Hanoverian breeding farm in eastern PA. Young, well started dressage horses and occasional hunter prospects always available. We have produced 37 Elite Mares and Elite Mare Candidates, and a State Premium Mare for the Hanoverian Society, 22 Special Premium mares and 8 Verbands Premium mares for the German Oldenburg Verband, and 9 licensed stallions, including the fully licensed and approved stallion named Shakespeare RSF (winner of the 2009 70 day stallion test), a licensed stallion named Somer Hit, 3 licensed stallions in 2012 (one from the first foal crop of Shakespeare RSF- Shotgun, also Dheputy and a stallion in Germany), Fhitzgerald and Sir James (both imported from Germany and successfully completed the 70 day stallion test here in the US), another licensed stallion in 2014 named Shavane- the second licensed Shakespeare RSF son who is out of homebred EM Rheporter (Royal Prince/Weltmeyer). In 2015 another Shakespeare son was licensed- Shortstop, who was Grand Champion at a USDF breed show in 2015. We have bred two top 5 FEI Young Horse National Champions and multiple HOY winners in hand and in dressage, and four winners of the Young Hunters Under Saddle at Hunter Devon. We stand 5 stallions: Shakespeare RSF (Sandro Hit/Arrian), Fhitzgerald (Florencio/Weltmeyer), Sir James (Sir Donnerhall/Feiner Stern), Dheputy (Dauphin/Rotspon) and Shavane (Shakespeare RSF/Royal Prince). Mo estimates she has bred about 400 foals to date and she also sells young stock and about 20-25 riding horses a year. Some of her horses are fourth and fifth generation from her own breeding program. Mo started out in hunters and jumpers and then rode dressage up to the PSG level, not competing much due to family and farm commitments. She finally received her USDF Bronze and Silver medals in 2018. Her homebred Hanoverians and Oldenburgs have been top ten in national dressage rankings and have won many under saddle and in hand classes at many shows such as Dressage at Devon, NEDA and the hunter show at Devon. She has produced numerous champions and reserve champions at many in hand shows and has been in the top 8 ranking for USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year since 2013. She was the 2016 and 2018 USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Breeder of the Year and has been in the top 7 since 2013. She has been the USEF Dressage Breeder of the Year every year since 2014 and was 2nd in that category from 2011-2013. She has been in the top 4 for the USEF Dressage Sport Horse Breeder of the Year since 2013. Over her years in warmblood breeding she has produced 37 Elite Mares and Elite Mare Candidates and two State Premium Mares for the Hanoverian Society, along with 26 Special Premium mares, 13 Verbands Premium mares, 179 Premium Foals and 48 Foals of Distinction for the German Oldenburg Verband, plus 9 licensed stallions. Her greatest pleasure has been breeding suitable horses for the amateur market in the disciplines of dressage with an emphasis on rideability and movement.
