1999 Black Hanoverian dressage mare. SPS Wonderful Dream (aka Martina) is a cream of the crop mare imported from Germany, she comes from a strong mare line that has produced licensed stallions and quality mares. Her temperament is fantastic and she is great to work with. The SPS title means States Premium Stute, only 10% of approved Hanoverian mares receive this award. She had an overall 8 in her performance test, scoring 8 for walk, 9 for her trot, and 8 for her canter.  Martina is one of four full-siblings, one which is another SPS mare, and a stallion that is competing at S class dressage in Germany.

A daughter of Martina named Cosmopolitan (Connery/Weltrum/Donnerhall-Photo below: Owned and ridden by Faye Dunn), was honorable mention in the USEF dressage for 5 year olds in the US in 2009. Martina has had 12 foals: 6 colts, and 6 fillies,  by stallions such as Locksley II, Rousseau (2), Connery, Dancier, Bellissimo M, Harvard, Bonheur, Dauphin, and (3) Schwarzenegger. She herself has won four 1A prizes, three in Germany and one in Canada where she was awarded best Hanoverian mare in Eastern Canada. (Ontario, Quebec, NS, NB, PEI)

Update: A lovely 3 year old daughter of Martina bred by Christine Stec and sired by Belissimo M has sold to Ted and Elaine Parkinson.  This impressive filly will go through the Mare Performance Test this fall.  Can't wait to hear the results.
