Rosentanz is a 17 h 2004 Oldenburg mare by Rosenthal out of Wiesentanz (Wolkentanz).  We knew she was special from day one and are now extremely proud to feature “Rose” as one of our primary broodmares. Rose was 2009 Training Level Horse of the Year with rider/trainer, Jessica Jo Tate, with a median score of 79.8% which was the highest score ever recorded.  She gets 8’s and 9’s for gaits. She has been a winner from an early age with multiple regional breed show wins and national titles (see below).  In addition to her productive show career, she is a proven producer, with winning foals, Song’n’Dance and Walberto, by embryo transfer.  Rose came home last summer to begin a career as a mom.  We are optimistic that her filly by Furstenball will also be a winner!


WESTEROS (2014).  We have been so impressed with Walberto that we bred Rose back to Wamberto.  Westeros is a dark bay/brown colt with a super disposition and amazing canter like his big brother Walbeto.

FLORABELLA (2013) is by Furstenball more info about her is available on our sale page!

WALBERTO (2009) is by the Dutch stallion Wamberto (a Rousseau son).  Walberto has 3 extremely good gaits, but his canter is the highlight!   Benjamin Pfabe has done a wonderful job with him.  He showed for the first time this winter in Florida and won 2 of his 3 classes.  He was Hore of Course high score  winner at Global Dressage Festival with a 78+%.  See article in Dressage Daily about Walberto and his trainer Benjamin Pfabe:

SONG’N’DANCE (2008), aka Samba, is now owned by Jane Rude in Oregon. She is by Sinatra Song and out of Rosentanz. Jane  says “She is a lovely young lady with a fantastic mind and wonderful gaits.  She is, in my opinion, the most beautiful horse with the sweetest personality I’ve ever had the pleasure to own.  She truly is my dream horse! It was love at first sight for both my trainer and I.  Not only is Samba conformationally very correct with lovely gaits, she clearly exhibited a superior mind.   The mare has little or no spook – I currently live in Central Oregon and my arena is surrounded by Juniper trees as well as sage and bitter brush.  We are also in a deer migration overlay so have lots of critters wandering by.  My best example of her mind would be the day I was cantering her and, as we approached the end of my arena that overlooks an undeveloped 40 acre piece of property, she sucked back a bit.  Given that this was a “new” thing, I opted to do a 20 meter circle at that end to see what the problem was.  As we came around that end again, she sucked back and was clearly looking outside the arena.  When I followed her eyes, I noticed that there were 4 deer standing in the shadows of the Juniper trees right outside of my arena.  We were both immediately distracted by the sight – Samba’s response was to quietly stop, look at the deer for a moment and then we were straight back to work, the deer forgotten.” Below is a video of Samba under saddle! Thank you, Jane, for keeping in touch! We love to hear the progress of our babies.
