Dam: Dolce Signorina
Dam Dolce Signorina is a stunning dark bay Oldenburg mare by Don De Marco (Donnerwetter) out of our premium producing mare Greetings (Gonzo I). Dolce is truly lovely, with an ultra-feminine head, good bone, three solid gaits and very correct conformation. She has the sweetest temperament with a great work ethic and an obvious desire to please that makes her a pleasure to ride and handle. Although early in his development, we have every confidence that Dolce has stamped these wonderful traits on Peerless.
17h Oldenburg stallion Gatsby is improving a wide variety of different types of mares, stamping his excellent qualities on his offspring with amazing consistency. Gatsby passes on his uphill build, long legs, lovely neck/topline, beautiful head, big shoulder, and strong loin connection. Gatsby typically adds substance to lighter mares but he will also refine heavier mares because of his modern type. His offspring tend to inherit his beautiful suspension, natural uphill movement, cadence, shoulder freedom, and excellent canter.
This stunning 2019 colt with chrome galore is by Gatsby out of Dannah (by Holsteiner stallion Conifer). “Taz” is the total package!
Proven hunter, jumper and dressage ability on both sides of his pedigree, coupled with his long elastic gaits, great bone and fantastic temperament make him a serious prospect for any sporthorse discipline.
Taz is expected to mature around 17 hands (he is wearing a 66” blanket at 7 months old).
He is registered and branded Oldenburg NA and microchipped with lifetime USEF / USHJA pending. Up to date on shots, worming and farrier. He has been handled daily and leads, loads and trailers well. With his sweet, fun-loving and inquisitive disposition, Taz has become a farm favorite!

Gorgeous 2018 gelding by the imported Grand Prix KWPN stallion Parcival out of the striking powerhouse Oldenburg mare Dolce Signorina. Peerless is leggy, modern and correct with uphill, floating, effortless gaits. Beautifully bred, his pedigree includes such greats as Lancelot, Voltaire, Gonzo I, Donnerwetter, Lucky Boy and Nimmerdor. He has talent and temperament suitable for a pro or serious amateur. He is inquisitive, clever and stunningly good looking. His personality is a wonderful mix of fire and cuddle bug, with an extra spark that draws the eye and makes him a farm favorite.
Peerless is up-to-date on shots, farrier and worming and is a pleasure to work around. He is branded and registered Oldenburg NA and lifetime recorded with USEF & USHJA.
Parcival’s sire and dam lines have each produced many successful Grand Prix and international jumpers, including half-brother Pavarotti (by Lancelot), currently successful in the Grand Prix ring with U.S. Team rider Todd Minikus, and Jeroen Dubbeldam’s grand prix mount Nassau, who shares Parcival’s damline (Jolanda). Half-brother Hamar (Mythens x Tamara) is a KWPN approved stallion who also jumped successfully in the United States with USET rider Laura Chapot, and has sired successful grand prix jumpers such as Blue Danube.
More than his beauty, pedigree, and conformation, though, Parcival is known for passing on his impeccable character. Every breeder has commented on the tractability, intelligence, steadiness, and sweetness of Parcival’s foals. It is not so surprising to us, as Parcival is the steadiest, most reliable horse at home, at shows, and in the breeding shed that many have ever known. He retired sound after an extremely long and successful dressage career.
Sire Parcival is a striking 16.3h imported KWPN stallion approved Oldenburg NA, GOV, RPSI and KWPN. Parcival’s foal crops have been strongly stamped with a graceful, powerful neck, a large, well-sloped shoulder and good square hip.
Successful in international dressage competition, Parcival is also very exciting for the jumper breeder. Parcival’s bloodline includes the legendary Preferent sires Voltaire, Nimmerdor, and Lucky Boy. Voltaire, himself an exceptional international showjumper and had the most offspring of any stallion at the 1996 Olympic Games. Voltaire was the U.S. “Hunter Sire of the Year” for 2001, 2002, and 2003, and is one of the top KWPN Jumping Sires with an index of 151 points. Parcival therefore shares close relation with Popeye K, More than Luck, and Just the Best.
