16.3+ hh Bay mare
P.B. Spartan x Andorra
Breeder: Breeder: Zuchtbetrieb, Germany
An Elite Spartan/Argentinus/Trapper daughter scored a 7.83 on her mare performance test (9 for jump). Imported by Silverhorne from Germany, her sire Spartan is best known for producing Stakkato (owned by the State Stud Celle), the German Bundeschampionate in 1999 under Eva Marie Bittner.
This mare became eligible for Germany’s Ratje-Niebuhr-Schau, a once every 6 year event for Elite mares only. This major Hanoverian breedshow featured over 250 mares, 230 of a dressage pedigree while but 20 were jumpers. Sienna excelled in the free jumping event-her obvious eye and technique in jumping was noticed by Judge Ludger Beerbaum. She was imported by Silverhorne and because she had achieved Elite status, she was and remains fully committed to the breeding program because of her jumping style, technique and scope.
On equal importance is the Argentinus (called a phenomenal foundation sire of the Hanoverian breed) by Argentan which shows on the bottom side of the pedigree. Argentinus shows a breed value index (heritability traits) of 133 for show jumping, 133 for technique and 138 for scope. Argentan’s main feature was siring true to type mares which is certainly evident with Sienna. Argentinus has presented dressage and jumping horses and Schochemohle’s PSI auction who changed owners for six figure sums on several occasions as well as at Vechta auctions. One son, A Jungle Prince was the 1993 Federal German Dressage Horse Championship winner at Mannheim. Isabelle Werth/dressage and Marcus Ehning/showjumping both show his offspring.
