Shelene did the German Oldenburg inspection and Mare Performance Test on August 17, 2023 at our farm. She did super, receiving a score of 7.7875 on her mare test. She received 8.5 in rideability, 8's on free walk, walk under saddle, trot under saddle, and 7.5's on free trot, free canter, and canter under saddle. We put her through the free jump chute, since we had it set up for the Hanoverian inspection and she jumped confidently with a good form the very first times through. She is a really fun horse to ride, in a perfect size for a lady rider, and the rideability for an amateur to have fun on.
Shelene's sire, Shavane, is a 2011 Fully Licensed and Approved German Oldenburg (GOV) 16.2 h stallion by Shakespeare RSF (Sandro Hit/Arrian) out of Elite Mare Rheporter (Royal Prince/Weltmeyer). Shavane was licensed by the GOV in 2014 with very high scores (8 breed and sex type, impulsion and elasticity in the trot, general impression and development, canter and saddle position). He then went to the 2015 70 day stallion test in Oklahoma. He would have placed third overall (117.64), 2nd in dressage (127.05) and 5th in jumping (104.19), had he not been severely injured (read- hairline fracture of the LF cannon bone) just a few days before the stadium jumping final days. His scores up to that time included 9.5 temperament, trainability, and rideability, 9.0 character, trot, and gallop cross country, 8.5 canter, walk, and free jumping. He recovered completely and went on to a very successful show career. Shavane's sire, Shakespeare RSF was the 2016 USDF Reserve Champion Horse of the Year for Intermediare II with a median of 74.145% He was also the USEF Dressage Sire of the Year for Sport Horse Breeding. Shavane's dam, EM Rheporter was 2007 Reserve Champion Filly at Dressage at Devon, and GRAND Champion at Dressage at Devon in 2011. She produced a GP horse and many other successful offspring, including Fherrari, who received the highest score ever given in the USA by the German Oldenburg Verband, and was Reserve Grand Champion at Dressage at Devon 2021, 4 year old Prospect Champion and East Coast Breeders Championship Mare Champion in 2022.
Shelene's dam, Special Premium Rhaisonette is a multiple time breed show winner, also trained and shown through third level before broodmare duties. She is sired by Rosentanz (by Rohdiamant) out of Elite Fhlora (by Fuerst Heinrich), who is the maternal half sister to Callaho's Benicio. In 2013, she was Mare Champion at Dressage at Lexington; Mare Champion, Reserve Champion Mature Horse, and Reserve Grand Champion at
Maplewood Warmbloods #1. At 2013 Dressage at Devon she was 2nd in the 4 y.o. and older Maiden Mares, 3rd GAIG/USDF Mare Championship, Reserve Champion GAIG/USDF East Coast Breeders Final. Year-end results placed her 1st in USDF All Breeds Award for GOV.
Shelene is a very attractive filly with three good gaits for dressage or hunter. She is easy to ride, very adjustable, good in the contact and cooperative on the ground and under saddle.
UPDATE- Shelene was taken off property for an off the farm experience and she was perfectly behaved. She loaded and unloaded from the trailer quietly, stood quietly while the other horse was ridden, and behaved perfectly when ridden in the strange arena. What a good girl!
She was entered in a dressage schooling show Jan 27, where she won both her Intro test C and training test 1 classes with scores of 82.5% snd 82.1%!!!! She did not put a foot wrong!!!
