A fresh pedigree, impressive exterior, and three exceptional gaits mark Lantanas as an attractive addition for dressage breeders. His sire, Sir Donnerhall, has over 90 approved sons, 193 States Premium daughters, Young Horse Champions, and many Grand Prix CDI horses to his record. Sir Donnerhall is currently ranked 18th on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings and his sire, Sandro Hit, is currently ranked #3. Sir Donnerhall’s sire is the legendary Donnerhall, who has had an incredible impact on dressage breeding. The Sandro Hit-Donnerhall combination has been an especially effective breeding nick.
The dam of Lantanas is herself a Prestatie mare who produced two licensed stallions, the Grand Prix mare Vitana V, and is the granddam for the Grand Prix stallion Cennin. Her sire Hemmingway competed at the World Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken and competed through 1.40 meters in showjumping. This valuable jumping blood is important to infuse into dressage breeding as well and Hemmingway has sired offspring successful in showjumping, dressage, and eventing as befits his versatile Holsteiner roots.
Lantanas received an excellent report at his KWPN Stallion Test and earned 8s or higher for all three gaits. He was praised for his willingness to work, his talent for dressage, and his uphill balance and was described as an honest and easy-going stallion in the barn. We are very excited to offer this stallion for the first time in 2020 and to watch his development under the talented team at Van Olst Horses.
