About - The €2.1million top-seller of the 2018 Hanoverian licensing, Vivino was the first horse purchased to cement the Schockemohle/Helgstrand partnership. He is a beautiful, tall stallion with outstanding conformation, presence, power and a superior modern type.
Sire - Vivaldi was proclaimed 'Preferent' by the KWPN in 2018, and is one of the most sought-after sires in modern breeding. His son Dream Boy, burst onto the international grand prix scene in 2018 with Hans Peter Minderhoud (who also competed Vivaldi), scoring +73% on his international debut before defeating a field of established horses to win the Olympia grand prix. He followed this up with victory in only his second grand prix freestyle in Mechelen on a score of over 83%. Blue Hors Veneziano, another Vivaldi son to impress in 2018, won the Louisdor Cup for developing grand prix horses in December, on a score of over 75%.
Vivaldi competed up to Inter I, scoring over 72% internationally at PSG. He was reserve champion of his stallion performance test and in 2007 he won the Pavo-Cup of five-year-old dressage horses. In 2008 and 2009, he added triumphs in the KNHS/KWPN stallion series achieving marks of 10.0 for his trot. Vivaldi is trained to advanced level. As a producer, he is now recognised globally; so far, in Germany alone 19 of his sons have now been licensed, amongst them several highly-priced premium stallions. Vivaldi enriched the World Championships of young dressage horses in Verden in 2014 and also in 2015, where his son Eye Catcher won the bronze medal of the six-year-olds. In 2015 and 2016, his son Fenix won the five and six-year-old Pavo-Cup in the Netherlands. The Pavo-Cup of six-year-olds was a real festival for Vivaldi in 2016, when behind Fenix, in second and third place, were First Apple and Fantastique, both Vivaldi progeny. Vivaldi's other sons include Desperado, Le Vivaldi, Geniaal, and Vitalis, who has dominated the German breeding scene in recent years.
Damline - Dancier was champion of the 2004 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden and the 2005 stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf; after his performance test, he sold for €330,000 to the state stud at Celle. As a young horse, he was reserve champion of the Hanoverian Young Horse Championships, and was third in the four-year-old Bundeschampionat final. In 2008 he was a finalist in the six-year-old Bundeschampionat, and is now successful at advanced level. Dancier's sire De Niro is top of the WBFSH Sire Rankings for 2016, and has enjoyed a phenomenal career in both sport and breeding; he has produced countless grand prix horses, winning medals at the highest levels. The De Niro/Weltmeyer cross, in the second generation of the pedigree, has also produced Delgado (individual bronze, Aachen 2015), Super Nova II (team silver, Rio 2016), grand prix stallion Danone I and his full brothers Danone II (now deceased) and Der Designer, both winners at Inter II. Dancier's damsire Lancier is by the great Thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusador, who won his own performance test with the highest marks in every section, including a 9 for rideability.
Vivino is a first foal for his dam Desiree, while her half-brothers by De Niro, Del Gado and Dany White, a licensed stallion and successful small tour horse, respectively, and her full-sister has produced the licensed Livaldon son, Livaldi.
