Zauberhafte (Smilla) 2019


A breeder's dream: a stunning and impeccably bred cremello filly with an extremely  sweet and inquisitive nature.

In May 2019 we welcomed this outstanding warmblood cremello filly to our herd. She was alert and bright from the very first moment and we could not believe our luck when we realised that this lovely light creamy filly had bright blue eyes! Four evenly marked white socks, a beautiful star on her forehead and an athletic conformation - she is everything and more than we could have ever hoped for!

Expected height: 17hh (already very! tall at the age of 18 months)

 

Smillas dam has produced 5 stunning foals before we decided to chenge her career to our family-riding horse after foal nr 5 at the age of 8 yeras old.

The first two daughters are under saddle and are proving to be brillint and talented riding horses. Smillas eldest sister "Rosie" is stabled with an international event rider (participant of the young horse wold championship and winner of the Bundeschampionate). Rosie is doing a fabulous job and if all goes well we might even be able to follow her carreer progressing to an international level. She seems to have what it takes to make an international eventer.

Emilia (*2017) by Escolar is aiming at a carrer in the dressage arena and similar to Rosie was ever so easy to start under saddle and is showing a lot of promise for the future. less so the jumping type, but definately an elegant dressage-horse.

Smillas full brother "Otto" is retained as a riding horse for our family as he brings just everything we personally dream of. Tall (172cm at the age of 30 months), kind, beautiful movements and stunning to look at. hopefully he will follow his two sisters in their footsteps and be equally esy to start under saddle and easy to ride.

 

About the breeding:

Zafferano is one of the most popular sires in Sweden at the meoment. At the age of 3 he finished the rigurous 50-day performance test in Germany, scoring a well above average 8,4. At the age of 6 he Won Dressage at M**-level and at the age of 7 he was competing a s-level. His first offspring is under saddle, proving to have a very good temperament, elegant looks and good rideability.

 

On the dam's side there is a combination of throroughbred, dressage legends (Damon Hill, Donnerhall, Rubinstein) and successful family in th jumping arena. Smillas granddam is sister to multiple show jumpers that were competing until the age of 17 up to 145cm, showing a lot of hardness and staying sound throughout a long career. A sister to Smillas granddam brought an internationally successful FEI CSI** winning offspring.
