All of the characteristics that distinguish a top sire have been united in Dante Weltino. This fabulous mover, the 1st Reserve Champion of the 2009 Oldenburg licensing in Vechta, fulfilled his performance requirements in 2012 by winning the qualifier for the Bundeschampionate in the class for five-year old dressage horses with an outstanding score of 8.3. He then repeated this feat in 2013 by winning the Bremen qualifier for the six-year old dressage horses, but with an even better score of 8.6.
Dante Weltino and his rider Therese Nilshagen helped the Swedish team take bronze at the 2017 European Championships in Göteburg and also placed fourth in the individual. In 2018, the duo placed 4th with the Sweidsh team and tenth in the individual at the World Championship in Tyron, USA. In 2019 they went on to help the Swedish Team win bronze at the FEI European Championship in Rotterdam.
The Hanoverian Verband approved the sparkling black stallion for breeding in 2012. Since then Dante Weltino's first foals arrived, and everyone has been talking about them. A son named De Supreme won the 2nd Lodbergen Foal Championships and was the most expensive colt at the Vechta Elite Foal Auction. Dante Ferro, the 2011 Lodbergen Champion, was sold as the gavel was knocked-down in Vechta for 29,000 Euros. Another Dante Weltino son named Damenball was sold for 20,000 euros.
In 2019 is daughter Atterupgaards Lady Hamilton was named Danish Warmblood Mare of the Year.
His sire, Danone I, has won ribbons up to level Intermediate I. Four of his sons were licensed including the second most expensive premium stallion of the Hanoverian licensing who sold for 320,000 euros and the stallion performance test winner, Dankeschön.
The dam's sire, Welt Hit II, was listed among the top ten in the 2011 WBFSH's list of the world's best dressage stallions.
The granddam, Verb.Pr.St. Riconess, is the dam of the show jumping Bundeschampion and winner of the Badenia Prize, Lumos (by Lordanos) and the Olympic participant St.Pr.A. Riwera OLD (by Welt Hit II).
The great granddam Ricarda is the dam of the Oldenburg Champion Mare, St.Pr./El.St. Riconda (by Contender). This is the successful line of Richilda.
Dante Weltino does not have a red factor and is therefore homozygous (EE) and passes on only dark coats (no chestnuts).
