Suzanne riding Diaggio 2013

Suzanne riding Dimaggio 2003

This tall, elegant son of Dimaggio has a beautiful head and neck and is strikingly uphill with outstanding paces for international dressage. So like his sire to ride, he is a very exciting addition to our breeding stallions.

Winning at PSG and ready to compete at Grand Prix. He has good trainability, is very kind and willing and is a pleasure to handle and ride. Diaggio stamps his foals with his beautiful features and dynamic paces.

His dam sire, Florestan, was champion at the 1988 Rhinelander Stallion Licensing and won the Stallion Performance Test in Warendorf the following year with 129,02 points.

He sired 88 approved sons and more than 2000 offspring are registered as sport horses. Many of them are World Young Horse Champions, Bundeschampions as well as Grand Prix horses: e.g. French Kiss, Fazzino, Florencio, Fidermark, Furst Fabio, Ferrara, Torricelli, etc.

Akzent II was prized for carrying on the ‘type’ of the Trakehner Absatz: a noble head and appealing face, ideal neck and saddle position and a good shoulder, combined with soft-to-the-ground way of going. His dam was by the Thoroughbred, Waidmannsdank, who was one of the most influential Thoroughbreds of the post-war period in Hanover.

Akzent II was regarded as one of the best producers of rideability in his day and is the dam's sire De Niro.

Keystone Rhondeo and Suzanne

Supreme Champion at the BWBS Stallion Grading 2004.  He obtained the rare pace marks of 9, 9, 9, for his walk, trot, and canter and was described by the international judges as “something very special”.  He was the youngest horse to be chosen when the World Class program was setup and remained part of that elite group of British dressage horses selected as potentials for team GB throughout his training.

His fantastic dressage pedigree included Rubenstein I, Brantano II and Weltmeyer, all of whom have produced medal winners at the Olympics. Rhondeo’s family also included one of the most highly decorated mare families.  In 2000 they became mare family Champion + St.Pr. Bona Dea his mother was elected individual mare champion.
