Walking in the footsteps of his sire
A young dressage stallion for the highest demands, Dante’s Jr. presents himself with an amazingly modern conformation, clearly predestined for the big dressage arenas. His movement is very regular and cadenced, always in balance, and he demonstrates exceptional class in walk and canter too. His sire Dante Weltino won many Grand-Prix classes and was, in 2016, bronze medalist with the Swedish team at the European Championships in Göteborg (SWE) ridden by Therese Nilshagen. He was also placed third in the Nations Cup in Aachen in 2017. So far, he has produced eight licensed stallions. Dam sire Sir Donnerhall I was second reserve champion of his licensing, stallion performance test winner, Ia main premium sire in 2005 and in 2006, German national champion as well as vice World Champion of five-year-old dressage horses. He quickly turned out to be a foundation stallion: 100 of his sons have already been licensed, including many licensing champions. In the third generation stands the chestnut stallion Wolkentanz I, who was trained up to Grand Prix level, was champion stallion of his licensing and champion at the German national championships. He sired 26 licensed sons and 45 successful descendants at advanced level/S level. The lifetime earnings of his progeny amount to over 556,000 euros. Wanderbursch II in the fourth generation was Reserve Champion of the Verden licensing and demonstrated an exemplary double talent in sport and breeding. The significant stallion Bolero rounds off this incredible pedigree. In the fourth generation, Dante’s Jr. is inbred to the legendary Donnerhall and the equally important stallion Weltmeyer appears three times in his pedigree.
He represents the Oldenburg mother line 269/Kronetta (by Patriot-Eldor-Exzellenz-Agar-Y. Wittekind), which was bred over generations in East Frisia and produced, as well as many top dressage and show-jumping horses, the licensed stallion Romeo (privately owned DK).
