on his dam side. Te result is exactly what you would expect. “Sole Mio has a lot of balance and a lot of potential in trot and canter. In addition, he is very attentive to the rider and reacts to fine aids,” Jessica says. And the German judge Gerd Sickinger commented at the test that the stallion gives the impression he always wants to give 120 percent for his rider. Diamondhead is also an excellent example of the success


of careful Hanoverian breeding. Jessica sums up his pedigree quite well. “Sire Diamond Hit is a living legend who has con- tributed numerous licensed sons, Bundeschampionat and world championship winners, as well as many upper level competition horses. His dam Heidefee now has two approved sons, while damsire Hohenstein brings type, expression and high rideability. Diamondhead’s charming character and willingness to work make him a favorite in the barn and he attracts plenty of atten- tion in the competition ring. Diamondhead is now schooling all the Grand Prix movements and has even shown aptitude over fences,” Jessica says.


Next Generation Success Te goal of the American Hanoverian Society, in alliance with Hanoverian mare and stallion owners, is to continue to breed the next generation of exceptional sport horses. Te stallions licensed each year at the sport test are evaluated a second year,


The pair also won the USDF Region 6 championship at Fourth level.


in order to ascertain that the quality, rideability and ability to progress through the levels of the sport are consistent from the first to second year. Hanoverian mares and foals are evaluated for strengths and weaknesses during the annual inspection tour. With the exceptional lineup of stallions now licensed in North America, it is clear the American Hanoverian’s passion for great- ness is paying dividends through their progeny. Diamondhead is no exception. Jessica owns nine mares, all carefully selected for quality but


different in type and breeding. She raves that Diamondhead has an incredible ability to “stamp” his offspring with talent and rideability. “His first foal, out of a Winterprinz mare, won the Hanoverian award three years in a row: Current Year, Yearling and Two-Year-Old Colt with scores into the ’80s!” Another son, out of an Arabian mare, is currently the USDF Horse of the Year, Colts in Hand, Half-Arabian. She describes both as sensi- tive enough for FEI levels but sensible and safe for the amateur market. She adds Diamondhead’s offspring are also universally intelligent, hard-working and committed to their riders. “Ninety percent of my market is amateurs over the age of 50 buying a young horse,” she adds. Tis means these are often individuals with families and careers, where riding is a hobby and safety is paramount. Jessica has done a fantastic job assisting with the licensing of


Hanoverian and Rhineland stallions and training her own im- pressive stallion. Her successful equestrian career illustrates how the methodical breeding exercised in the Hanoverian breed for over 300 years continues to produce top-caliber horses.
