For Romance II was premium stallion at the 2015 Oldenburg licensing in Vechta, on the brink of perfection in type and model: This is what a modern dressage horse looks like! His three gaits are powerfully transmitted, a cadenced walk with diligence and ground cover, a trot with enormous elastic force, actively repeated from the hindquarters with a lot of freedom of the shoulders, and an uphill canter, at each stage covering a lot of ground. For Romance II confirmed this high evaluation at his 14-day-test in Schlieckau in 2016 and in his sport test for four-year-old stallions in Spring 2017 in Verden. From his first crop of foals, several of the extremely typey and high-quality offspring were auctioned off at the highest prices: several times he produced the exceptional foals, including Flambeau, sold for 20,000 € at the May Elite Auction in Verden, Roschade, sold for 40,000 € at the Elite Foal Auction in Vechta and Frederic who was top price of the Elite Foal Auction in Verden at 52,000 € in August.
All five stallions of the first generations – Fürst Romancier, Sir Donnerhall I, Don Schufro, Sandro and Gepard – belonged to the Schockemöhle Breeding Station. For Romance II is the full brother to the licensing and performance test winner and top price For Romance I and to the elite show winner, German national champion and PSI top price Fasine as well as half- brother to the 2015 Mecklenburg licensing winner, Feinrich. Noticeable is the triple inbreeding to the Oldenburg “emblem” Donnerhall and the characterizing half-blood Sandro in the previous generations.
Sire Fürst Romancier was fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses and at the German national championships. His progeny are extremely successful in elementary/novice classes and have straightaway put Fürst Romancier in the top group of the FN breeding value estimation index. Over the last few years, Fürst Romancier was represented by numerous progeny at the top of the placings at the German national championships. The dam sire Sir Donnerhall I has already earned the status of “trademark stallion”. Himself second Reserve champion of his licensing, regional champion, record winner of his stallion performance test, Vice world champion of dressage horses and German national champion and winner of the dressage emphasized main premium, he can refer to over 90 licensed sons. Numerous auction top prices are to his credit. In the third generation is Don Schufro, Danish Champion and Team bronze winner at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong in 2008 with Andreas Helgstrand/DEN, as well as sire of numerous champions.
