Dior by DeLaurentis (DeNiro) - 2006 Pr Gov filly

Posted by Picasa

Congratulations to Dior's grandsire, DeNiro.
Each year the Hanoverian Verband chooses one exceptional stallion who has had a profound impact on the breed to be named the stallion of the year. It was very exciting to learn this week that De Niro has been given that honor for 2008. Standing at Klosterhof Medingen, De Niro has been a successful Grand Prix competitor, winning the 2001 German Championships for professional riders and the 2003 German Dressage Derby.

De Niro passes on his excellent rideability, movement, type, and expression to his offspring. He has sired 22 approved sons and 99 States Premium daughters.

Words from a German re Rohdiamant as the best Rubenstein son

certainly rohdiamant.
the statistics speak a clear language:
40 licensed sons
510 registered mares
73 of them stpr
251 registered sport horses in 2007and even more valuable:45 of his get competing in S-level.can't beat that number.
i googled the net out of fun these days for foals by rohdiamant: you can't find any for sale.

We have 2 Rohdiamont grandsons for sale, Zippy and Ripley.

Why shop for your horse in the USA? (copied from a forum)

At today’s exchange rate:
$50,000 US = 32,338 Euros
$75,000 US = 48,407 Euros

If you are looking at paying 32,000 Euros for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 15,000E – 25,000E, with commissions accounting for the rest. If you are lucky and have very good contacts and a good agent, you could probably find a “decent” 7-8 year old in that price range.

If you are willing to pay 50,000E for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 25,000E – 35,000E. That would get you something a bit fancier, or something with a solid M show record, or something not as experienced but with an AA temperament and still enough talent to make FEI.

... Just remember that importation to NY plus USDA quarantine is running about $7000 now.
