Premium stallion, top price and winner of his 30-day-test
A king of the dressage ring: Large in frame and impressive and at the same time charming and elegant, the premium stallion Danciano always presents himself as a noble but also self-confident dressage talent for the highest of demands. He convinces with three equally excellent paces and an exemplary rideability. At the 30-day-test Danciano was the superior stallion of the quality candidates. He received a mark of 8.48, the highest overall mark, and a mark of 8.91 for stallions with an emphasis on dressage, which was the second highest mark. His trot was awarded a 10.0! In 2014, he made his debut in sport achieving wins and placings in riding horse classes, was Hanoverian Vice-Champion in Verden and was nominated for the German national championships. In 2015, in line with his age group, he won dressage horse competitions at L level and was placed at the German national championships of five-year-old dressage horses. Since then, he has won M level dressage competitions, qualified in 2016 to the German national championships and is trained up to high level. His first crop brought numerous premium foals in different breeding regions. In autumn 2016 his first sons were licensed, including one premium stallion.
His sire Dancier was Champion Stallion at the Hanoverian licensing in Verden. In 2005, he won the stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf and in 2006, he became Hanoverian Vice-Champion Riding Horse and Bronze Medalist of four year old stallions at the German national championships in Warendorf. He was then successful at S level and started his breeding career: So far, 29 sons have been licensed, including the top-price of the Verden Stallion Market 2011, De l’Or, and the second PSI-top-price 2012, Don Noblesse. The dam Rodney’s Girl is full sister to the licensed stallion Rood Vander who won at advanced level/S level with Martina Hannöver-Sternberg. Dam sire Rotspon was premium sire at the Verden licensing in 1997, champion of the stallion performance test in 1998 and is seen as a distinctive dressage horse producer. In the third generation comes Wolkenstein II, probably the most influential son of Weltmeyer, who won the German national championships and his stallion performance test in 1993.
Danciano represents the Hanoverian mare lineage 244/Dollarkunst (by Dollart-Format III etc.), which was widely represented, especially in Oldenburg, with stallions such as De Kuyper, De Vito, Dépardieu, Florion and Razzmataz. Also from this lineage is the licensing champion stallion Raferty (PB/privately owned stallion Bavaria) and the internationally successful dressage horse Chagall15/ Madeleine Winter-Schulze as well as the successful show jumper Sir Blacky/Claus-Heinrich Bohlmann.
