La Mariposa

2006 Bay Hanoverian Mare - 16.1hh

 

This beautiful dappled bay mare has lovely conformation, is intelligent with a sweet temperament.  She has excellent bloodlines and produced a lovely daughter, La Estrella SF. She is a very good broodmare or could return to work as a riding horse.

As a young horse, Maggie was doing very well under-saddle when she developed a slight problem.  We decided to breed her and let her grow and develop which is typical for warmbloods. Recently, as we prepared for the auction, we discovered that an issue was still present and received an intermittent patellar fixation diagnosis. Various treatments options exist that are very successful and uncomplicated. These are possible if someone would like to use her as a performance horse but unneccesary for her to continue as a broodmare.

La Mariposa’s sire is Linaro. He was named Champion stallion at his

100 day test and competed in the German Championships at Verden. His offspring are characterized by their legginess, elastic movement, jumping prowess and unmistakable beauty. Linaro sired the 1997 Holsteiner Champion Stallion.

Of all Holsteiner stallions presented to the Hannoverian Verband for approval as improvement sires, the Hannoverian Verband chose only Contender and Linaro.

EM Francesca is a successful performance mare by Wanderer out of a Pik Solo dam. Cheska's sire Wanderer was a Top 10 sire for his age group. EM Francesca produces excellent temperaments and lovely, athletic babies.

EM Francesca is by Wanderer out of a Pik Solo dam. Francesca was a competition horse and broodmare representing her dam in the best tradition. Cheska's sire Wanderer was noted for producing both outstanding jumping and dressage horses, a top 10 sire for his age group. Cheska's character and temperament are a great combination of gentle and sensitive. She was a super show horse because of her calmness on the ground, yet she was fiercely competitive in the jumper ring.

At her Hanoverian mare inspection she scored 8's for elasticity, impulsion, and overall development and impression. At her AHS Mare Performance Test she scored an overall 7.72 with 10/9 jumping. Co-winner of the Benchmark Award as best jumping mare in 2004. Inducted into the AHS Jumper Breeding Program. Dr. Ludwig Christmann, Deputy Breeding Director for the German Hanoverian Verband described her as having very good legs-front and hind, well balanced, athletic with excellent movement. Gert von der Veen of the KWPN (Holland) gave Francesca the most "double x's" (very good) of all demonstration horses presented during the USDF judges training program.
