Roman Holiday is a 2004 Premium Oldenburg mare by Roman Nature (Rohdiamant) out of Cortana (Cor Noir/Cor de la Bryere).
“Holly” is an exceptional Oldenburg premium mare who represents the ultimate in type and movement for dressage. She has three outstanding and correct gates which captivates your attention and epitomizes dressage movement. Holly herself is a premium mare who was the second highest scoring mare during her Oldenburg Mare Inspection in the country.
Holly is an incredible and proven producer of top quality offspring with three Premium foals to her name. Holly’s 2013 filly, Sandro’s Holiday by Sandro Hit, impressed the GOV committee with her beauty and movement, taking home not only Premium Foal but also Foal of Distinction and Champion Foal of the inspection. In addition, Holly’s 2015 colt, Koraggio, by Negro earned his First Premium status with the KWPN. Holly’s 2016 colt by Richman also obtained his premium status and was named a stallion prospect by the Danish Warmblood Association. Holly currently has premium offspring, including a stallion prospect, with FOUR registries; the GOV, Oldenburg NA, Danish Warmbloods, and the KWPN.
Holly’s presence and beauty is an outward reflection of her kind nature and amateur appropriate Character and Temperament. She is an easy horse to manage with a good brain that is passed onto her offspring. Holly is currently excepted in three mare books; GOV, Oldenburg NA, the KWPN, and the Danish Warmblood book.
For 2019 Holly is bred to the impressive stallion, Franziskus, ridden and competed by Ingrid Klimke! You can learn more about our In-Utero offerings here. We think so highly of this cross, that we are secretly hoping for a filly to retain for our breeding program.

Rhiannon, or Nini as she is known around the barn, is a 2009 mare by Rascalino out of MS Fire and Ice (Wuemmestern / Pik Bube I). Rhiannon had a successful dressage career and even dabbled in hunters where she was also very successful.
Rhiannon is currently in foal to the impressive KWPN stallion Wynton!
Darcy Diamond is a 2007 imported Hanoverian mare by Diamond Hit out of a Cheenook mare. DeeDee has a super temperament, is very sweet and trainable, has a wonderful work ethic, and is always happy to please. She was trained and showed through third level before suffering a career ending injury.
DeeDee foaled a colt by Foundation in June 2019! He sold to a professional and we can’t wait to see what these two do!
Vixen is a 2002 KWPN mare by none other then the world famous Olympic Ferro!
Vixen is in foal to the KWPN stallion Zhivago.
Ovation is a 2019 KWPN filly by Franziskus out of our own Roman Holiday. Ovation is every breeders dream keeper filly. She has outstanding movement, amazing confirmation, and is so easy to be around! We are hoping to do an Embryo Transfer with Ovation in either the summer of 2021 or early 2022.
Dressy Affair is a 2002 Thoroughbred Mare approved by the Oldenburg NA. She comes from top sport Thoroughbred lines and has siblings performing at high levels in jumpers and eventing. Her offspring tend to be well rounded individuals, capable of going in many directions. She passes on her great temperament, scope, and great hind end activity.
Lilly’s 2010 filly was by Edelweiss de Bonce and became successful in hunters and as a broodmare. In 2013, Lilly foaled a premium filly and high scoring foal of her inspection by Cor Noir. This filly went on to become very successful in Eventing with outstanding dressage movement. Lilly’s 2015 colt was a well rounded individual by Parabol with a heart of gold and an amazing temperament.
In 2015, Lilly foaled a custom bred colt by Parabol, Pollux (see photo below of chestnut colt). As a yearling, he is super friendly, laid back, and appears to have all the athletic characteristics of his older siblings. He’s one that will also excel in any direction.
In 2010, Lilly had her first foal, a filly by Edelweiss De Bonce. Edelweiss de Bonce has an incredible jumper pedigree, but he himself competed to Grand Prix in Dressage under Catherine Haddad-Staller. The filly, “End the Affair”, had her first foal in 2016 by Mannhattan – making Lilly a granny! Here’s a photo of End the Affair and her 2016 colt by Mannhattan, Madhatter d’Avalon (Photo Credit to Jos Mottershed). Isn’t he fancy!
