With wonderfully engaged movement and beautiful expressiveness, this extremely charming youngster has potential for the big arenas. In 2018, Donier finished his stallion performance test in Schlieckau in the top group, with expected high scores for basic gaits, willingness to perform and overall impression (9.0 each).
His sire De Niro was successful at Grand Prix level at the age of eight and, among other successes, winner of the Dressage Derby in Hamburg with riding master Dolf-Dietram Keller. De Niro has now led the WBFSH ranking list of the best dressage sires worldwide for six years. There are no championships in which his offspring, including Desperados FRH/Kristina Bröring-Sprehe, Dablino/Anabel Balkenhol, D'Agostino FRH/Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier, Delgardo/Beatriz Ferrer-Salad/ESP, Voice/Edward Gal/NED and Deep Impact/Severo Jurado Lopez/ESP, do not fight for medals. Over 220 advanced level horses are registered in Germany alone and have won over 3.1 million euros in prize money for their father. With 100 licensed sons, De Niro will have a lasting influence on dressage horse breeding.
Dam sire Totilas won double gold at the European Championships in Windsor/GBR in 2009 and triple gold at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington/USA in 2010. Furthermore, he was unbeatable at the World Cup Final in 2010 in 's-Hertogenbosch/NED and achieved numerous world record scores. He produced over 20 licensed stallions, such as Total Hope, Champion of his licensing, Swedish Champion and finalist at the World Championships for young dressage horses, the double silver medallist at the World Championships, Governor-STR/Adelinde Cornelissen/NED and the Baden-Württemberger Champion and advanced level winner Topas/Nicole Casper.
In the next generations of Donier's pedigree appear the stallion lines of Lauries Crusador xx, Sandro Hit and Donnerhall.
The great-grand-dam Sunny Girl produced the licensed stallion Lord Schufro OLD (by L'Espoir), Regional Reserve Champion and placed twice at the German Championships. Her daughter Funny Girl (by Fürst Romancier) produced the licensed stallion San Bordeaux (by San Amour I).
The fourth generation dam Fantastica, produced the two licensed stallions Sunny-Boy (by Sandro Hit; advanced level dressage) and Classico (by Classiker, sport name Capuccino, victorious at Grand Prix level with Karin Rehbein and Julia-Katharina von Platen-Elmerhaus, lifetime earnings above 120,000 euros).
From the famous bloodline of Finnländerin descend many stallions, including Blue Hors Don Schufro/Andreas Helgstrand/DEN, Olympic bronze medal with the Danish team. The Grand-Prix successful horses Don Primero/Karin Rehbein, Totality, Just Wimphof, Salutation, Sampras, Davidoff's Hit, Lord Leopold, Topas, Cherubin, Favoloso L, Ron Rubin, Vito Corleone S, Sidney, Sandro's Success, Peron M, Red Rebel, Veneziano, Zatchmo, Rudisha, Zirrus, Fürst Romanov and the Oldenburg Champion Mare Fabina also come from this bloodline.
