Our goal is to produce Hanoverian and Oldenburg warmblood horses of exceptional quality – ones that are considered outstanding not just here in the US but also in Germany. We primarily breed for dressage horses with excellent gaits and temperaments. However, we also produce horses that can succeed as hunters, jumpers, and eventers. We can do this because in addition to having excellent gaits, our broodmares are outstanding jumpers, have “blood” in their pedigrees, and we cross them with dressage stallions that also have jumping abilities.
We can breed exceptional horses because we have exceptional broodmares that include an Oldenburg Rastede participant, a German mare show winner, and a US mare performance tour winner. In addition, our mares come from proven, highly successful mare lines that have produced a number of well known stallions. To the best of our knowledge such mares are difficult to find in the US.
Don Amour, Prime Time’s first foal, receives “premium” title, is top foal of 12 Don Frederic offspring at competitive Muehlen (Germany) inspection, featured in Schockemoehle video of impressions, and selected for prestigious A.O.S. Auction.
Belinda, Farina’s 2010 filly, receives St. Pr. A. title at the 2013 Goettingen (Germany) mare show.
South Ridge Bliss, after seven years as a broodmare, and in second show of her life, wins numerous 1st place ribbons in hunter/jumper classes with her 10 year old rider, resulting in two high point scores.
Prime Time obtains her inspection and mare performance test scores (mostly 8.5 and 8s) which earn her participation in the highly selective 2012 Oldenburg Rastede (Germany) mare show.
Arbo competes in this first hunter/jumper shows and ribbons in all classes
Purchased Prime Time as a two year old, her Elite dam produced two premium approved stallions.
Purchased South Ridge Bliss with highly successful show and jumper pony pedigree and dam of “Fancy This,” one of the top 15 five year olds competing in the 2010 USEF National Young Horse Championships.
Purchased St. Pr. Farina – mare show winner with high inspection and mare performance test scores (8 overall) and out of highly successful damline that has produced stallions like Benetton Dream, Danone I, Der Designer and Winterprinz.
Started D&M Warmbloods in response to First Class’ success.
First Class was highest scoring mare on US Hanoverian Mare Performance Test Tour (overall score of 8.5 and combined score of 9.5 on free jumping)! She received both the Engler-Friedlaender Memorial and Benchmark Perpetual Trophies, making her one of only two mares to have received both in a single year.
Feel free to contact or visit us. We look forward to meeting you!
