Sire Info: Sir Donnerhall
Dame Info: Ameline
Sir Donnerhall's pedigree shows of some of the world’s all-time favourite performance stallions. These include stallions like Sandro Hit, Sandro Song, Donnerhall, Donnerwetter and Royal Z II. Sir Donnerhall is a consistent producer of top-quality offspring with pretty impressive achievements. He produced the champion stallion Sonnenreiter that was sold for €120 000, as well as Sir Rubinstein that was sold for €105 000. Silbermond, the North Rhine-Westphalian champion, was also sired by Sir Donnerhall, with one of his sons selling for €195 000 at the Hanoverian Auction. He also produced two premium Oldenburg stallions in 2006. The popularity of Sir Donnerhall’s offspring became evident when Schickeria was sold for €335 000 at the North Rhine-Westphalian Elite Auction, and Sankt Hulfer received the highest bid of €300 000 at the Vechta Auction. Sir Donnerhall’s first foal crop is having an incredible influence worldwide, with Sir Nymphenburg being the South German Champion Stallion.
Sir Donnerhall himself celebrated a superior victory in the five-year-old division at the National Young Horse Championships. In 2003 he was honoured with a 1st premium and won his 30-day test scoring in all three gaits with top marks between 9.0 and 10.0. The test riders awarded him with a 9.5 for rideability. In his 70 test he did even better and scored a dressage index of 163 points – a score never achieved by a stallion before. After winning the qualifier for the finals of the World Championships at the age of five with a score of 9.2, he came second overall. A masterpiece has been created with Sir Donnerhall by joining together the two exceptional producers Sandro Hit and Donnerhall out of the brilliant ring mare Contenance D. Sir Donnerhall is a unique specimen with no buts or ifs. He is exclusive in every aspect.
Ameline, KNN 2514, a magnificent purebred graded homozygous Knabstrupper mare that was Best Mare over 3 years at the 2011 KNN grading is by the homozygous few-spot Ravaldi out of Sabine, that is by the well-known Don Ibrahim (also the sire of Xanthos). Her bloodlines include some of the most influential Knabstruppers in the world. Xanthos competed successfully in dressage in Denmark and he has sired offspring that compete on international level. Xanthos has been awarded a silver medal for his offspring by the KNN. Offspring by Xanthos include Xquisit Middelsom, Xhogun Middelsom, Harlequin Middelsom, Xaxon, Zenia and last but definitely the most well-known Zanko. The stallion Zanko, a multi-winner of gold medals at the Olympics in Paralympic dressage, ridden by Ann Cathrin Lubbe from Norway, has swept the board at the World Para-Dressage Championships. Competing in the grade IV category, they were placed first with 72.07% in the team test on Friday 20 July, first with 70.77% in the individual test on 21 July, and first again with 74.40% in the individual freestyle on 22 July. Ravaldi is the sire of many international competing horses including the stallion Holmgards Bastian, winner of Best Stallion at the UK 2007 KNN Grading, as well as Lucas Nørmark and Amadeus Nørmark, a KNN winner that needs no further introduction.
