She has beautiful gaits, lovely conformation, a stunning, ultra-feminine head, and has the sweetest temperament. She has proven to be a wonderful broodmare, producing many premium foals and passing on her sweet personality. We value these traits so highly that we kept Dolce Signorina, a dark bay filly by the Oldenburg stallion Don De Marco out of Greetings, for our broodmare band.

His dam is a full sister to the legendary Desiter, who in one decade with the Olympian Paul Schockemoehle amassed $1.5 million in earnings, winning an Olympic Silver medal, four German National Championships and three European Championships. Gonzo I's sire, Gepard, produced Hunter sire All the Gold and 12 Grand Prix show jumpers. His grandsire, Gotthard, is the most famous jumping sire in the Hanoverian breed. Gonzo I proves his jumping heritage with success in the Open and Puissance Divisions under Olympian Frank Sloothak. He also competed through Fourth Level in Dressage. Gonzo I's German FN recorded Dressage Production Index (for offspring) has now equaled his Jumping Production Index. In other words, Gonzo I's offspring are excelling in Europe in both Show Jumping and Dressage.
