Dance Away HW, black Hanoverian gelding by Dauphin (Donnerhall/Feiner Stern)/World Cup I, born in 2004, standing approximately 16.1¾ hands.
Dance Away HW – , as promised by his name, he is an impressive moving FEI prospect and a super horse with high ride ability – he will make you fall in love in an instant. He was already successfully shown. He just looks and moves like his famous sire Dauphin. Dauphin is a type Donnerhall son from an outstanding mother line developed at Groenwohldhof where his sire stood for breeding. The dam side brings an additional legacy of performance blood to the stellar heritage of Dauphin’s legendary father. There are three older sisters who have already earned their SPS or EM status and additionally have shown in competitions.
Marefield Meadows, his breeder, was fortunate when Dauphin was invited to join 49 other colts in the 11-Month Stallion Performance Test at Adelheidsdorf. He was the only privately-owned stallion of the group and he was given the headstall number 50. His earnest work ethic seemingly indicated that he was trying hard to prove the number on his bridle would not determine the rank of his standing at the end of the training period. The German breeders who followed the young stallions as they progressed in their careful and thorough program were favorably impressed with Dauphin’s swinging back and happy attitude. “For him it’s like play; the riding is a game to him,” was the report from one breeder who viewed Dauphin at the first public presentation of the training group; and those who visited him in his stall commented on his kind nature and good manners.
also showed a sturdy toughness when he made it through the entire training and
testing period barefoot. There were quite a few in this group of young stallions
who were highly talented in jumping but Dauphin managed to hold his own by
finishing in the middle of the pack, a surprising placement for a horse from
bloodlines that typically are considered almost exclusively for dressage. By the
end of the test he had earned a score in dressage that ranked him fourth in the
group, and Dauphin was invited to remain at
Dance Away HW has the finest pedigree.
Update 2009: Dauphin is published for the first time in the breed value estimation, here is an article out of THE HANOVERIAN:
In addition to his sire Dauphin whom carries the favorite Donnerhall and Feiner Stern blood, he carries World Cup (sire of Weltmeyer and many more W-line stallions) on his dam site, it’s no wonder that he’ll impress in many ways.
Dam sire, World Cup, Hanoverian stallion of the year 1996:
The competition genes are inherited! He is a very elegant boy for an amateur or professional alike. He knows exactly how to present himself and has a given "look at me attitude". He has a great temperament and is a sweet and one of the prettiest boys you will find, just look in his eyes and you'll melt away. He is in daily training and at Second/Third level right now. He is doing solid shoulder in at trot and canter. He does the flying changes and he loves to do them. All exercises are easy for him and he gives 100% to please all the time. He is a joy to handle and does seriously well in dressage or as a fancy jumper/hunter, as he is athletic enough to do it all. He is easy to train and willing to learn. He picks up where he left the day before - what a joy! He is a forward horse, with enough courage and energy to go up the levels, but still level headed and fun to ride without being hot. He already showed with success at 2nd level in the US and collected blue ribbons.
This is a horse for young riders, amateurs and professionals alike and for sure a great addition to a show barn as he will collect ribbons for you with his great attitudes and judges will remember him. He is ready to go to his new owner and impress with his looks and potential. He already has a very good rhythm/balance, schwung and is uphill with a good motor and elegant front leg movement with a free shoulder. Can you imagine showing him off at a clinic, what will the audience say? Guess they'd be rather speechless………… Hopefully you'll be the one guiding him in his future journey and the one to collect all the nice compliments which you are looking for.
