The highly acclaimed Westphalian Champion Stallion Danciero has now also confirmed his dream horse characteristics in dressage arenas. Shortly before his fantastic stallion performance test in Denmark with a total score of 911.0 points (10.0 for rideability), he became the superior Hanoverian Riding Horse Champion in Verden: 10.0 for trot and canter, 9.5 for rideability and 9.0 for walk. With a total score of 9.4, the beautiful stallion with huge paces was in a class of his own, ridden by his trainer Eva Möller. At the German Championships for three-year-old stallions, he also received high scores for canter and rideability (9.0s) as well as for trot, walk and conformation (8.5s).
His sire Dancier, Hanoverian champion stallion in 2004 and winner of the overall and dressage index of his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 2005, was awarded the Freiherr von Stenglin Prize and Burchard Müller Prize as best stallion of his age class in 2006. Dancier then came second at the Hanoverian Riding Horse Championships and third at the German Championships (4-year-old class) after winning the qualifier for the final. In 2008, he was also placed in the 6-year-old championships in Warendorf. Since then, he has been victorious up to Prix St. Georges in dressage. In 2014, Dancier was awarded the prestigious “Grande-Preis”. The crowd of over 40 licensed sons is led by the Burg Cup and Louisdor Prize finalist Harmony's Don Noblesse/Susan Pape/GBR, who was sold for a high price at the P.S.I. Auction.
His dam Floris was highly-placed at competitions for young horses. His dam sire Floriscount was champion of the dressage index of his stallion performance test with scores up to 10.0, qualified several times for the German Championships and, in 2014, was placed second in the Burg Cup final in Frankfurt with Oliver Oelrich. Since then, the VTV dressage stallion has been placed in Grand Prix classes, ridden by his breeder’s daughter, Patricia von Merveldt. In third place in the pedigree is the Celle State Stud stallion Rascalino. The Rotspon son was placed three times at the German Championships. At the World Championships for six-year-old dressage horses, he finished fourth and in 2012, he came sixth at the German Championships in Hünxe.
