First Dance

Now in the US! Classic Florestan I/Donnerhall Bloodlines, Proven Dressage Competitor & Sire.
First Dance was enthusiastically acclaimed at his 2006 Hanoverian Licensing in Verden, Germany, because of his perfectly cadenced rhythm and powerful movement. He placed in the 2009 Bundeschampionate for young dressage horses and won many young horse dressage classes, moving on to success in M**-classes and competed successfully at Prix St. Georges Level. First Dance earned Elite Stallion status based on his German 30-Day Test scores (walk 9, rideability 8.75, character 8.5, constitution 8.5, trot 8.5, canter 8.5) combined with his high placing at the Bundeschampionate. His sire, Florestan I, produced more than 70 licensed sons, over 180 State Premium mares and countless sport horses including Floriano ridden to a U.S. bronze medal by Stefan Peters. First Dance’s dam SPS Dorina, won the 1A prize each year from 2003-06 at the Aurich-Tannenhausen mare show. She also produced a second licensed stallion, full brother to First Dance. Damsire Donnerhall is a legend of breeding and sport. A double World Champion in dressage, he produced over 100 licensed sons and many extraordinarily successful offspring. First Dance’s damline is known for producing advanced dressage horses and States Premium mares. First Dance has a dressage score of 140 points in the estimated breeding evaluation by the FN. He passes on his beautiful movement and exceptional quality to his offspring. He has produced several Verden auction foals and riding horses, States Premium mares and three licensed sons, First Flush, First Duke and First Diamond. In the U.S., Fighting Chance L placed 3rd in Second Level Open at the 2016 USDF Finals. Successful dressage competitors include Fleur de Lis L who was Reserve Champion at the 2016 NAJYRC with Vanessa Creech, First Song KF, and Foxey Lady L. In the U.S., his offspring are known for their outgoing personalities, correctness and extravagant gaits. In 2017, we are looking forward to First Dance’s first foal crop since his importation to the United States! First Dance is approved AHS, HV, ARS and GOV.
