Biedermeier RRS aka “Bruiser” is by the elite Hanoverian stallion ES Bonheur, by Brentano II, one of the most influential sire lines that has produced multiple World Cup, World Equestrian Games and Olympic competitors, including America’s favorite mare, Brentina (campaigned by Debbie McDonald).

Bruiser’s Dam, MS Portiana, is an elegant German import by Prince Thatch, undoubtedly one of the most important English Thoroughbreds chosen to lighten and modernize the Hanoverian breed.

Also by ES Bonheur, Bruiser’s half-brother, Benefactor RRS has been trained and competed by Silva Martin to great success. Benefactor’s accomplishments include: Region I Champion at Training and Second Level, Reserve Champion at First Level, BLM an GAIG Champion at Training, First and Second Levels and 5th Place in the National Young Horse Championships. In 2013 he was honored as the American Hanoverian Society’s top 5 year old with a median score of 8.3 with multiple wins in his classes at Dressage at Devon!

Bruiser shares not only the same exceptional breeding with Benefactor RRS, but also the same easy temperament and personal presence. Just started under saddle in the fall of 2014, Bruiser is displaying an exemplary work ethic and considerable athleticism!

NAME: DEMITASSE RRS
SEX: MARE

SIRE: ES DONARWEISS GGF (BY DE NIRO)
DAM: MS LANTHANA (BY HLP LANTHAN)
BREED: HANOVERIAN
BREEDERS/OWNERS: MELINDA WALTON & T. LARRY SMITH

Demitasse RRS, aka “Demi”, is an elegant, extremely feminine in type filly, with a wonderful temperament and a diva personality deserving of all the attention she rightfully deserves!

Demi’s American bred sire, Donarwiess GGF was champion of his 30 day test and first place in the American Hanoverian Society USDF All Breeds Awards and has won several Regional Championships, including the FEI Levels.

Donarweiss GGF is by De Niro, the 2008 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year, who is described as “the embodiment of the Hanoverian stallion” with a legendary career. De Niro is by the incomparable Donnerhall, one of the greatest foundation sires of the 20th Century.

Demi’s Dam, MS Lanthana, is by HLP Lanthan, by Lombard. Lanthan, having the highest breeding value in his age group, is now known for producing upper level dressage horses with elasticity of movement and ground covering gates.

With impeccable breeding combined with a sweet disposition and graceful movement, Demi should prove herself to be an effective and engaging competitor in the dressage ring. Recently started under saddle in the fall of 2014, Demi is displaying a willingness to please and is upholding her genetic legacy!
