Esprentina NPF (Sir Oldenburg/Florestan/Phonix(Pilot))

2009 KWPN dressage mare by the super stallion Sir Oldenburg and out of an impressive Florestan/Phonix dam. This tall (16.3hh), extravagant mover is a lovely dressage mare through and through.  She has a long swinging walk with an ample overtrack, an impressive trot with high knee action and a great reach through from behind, best of all her canter is VERY uphill and is ground covering.  "Tina" has been approved for Hanoverian breeding by the German Hanoverian Verband.

Updates: Dec/2017:  Tina has produced four lovely foals for us which have gone on to sell to NB, MD, NS, and PEI. 

We are looking forward to seeing her 2018 foal by Dauphin in late March.
