LA DIVINA by Lauries Crusador xx - In-foal to Don Schufro
HANOVERIAN MARE - BAY - BORN MARCH 18, 2007 - 168 CM /16.2 H.H
LA DIVINA descends from the legendary foundation line of ALFERATE that has influenced the Hanoverian breed like no other foundation line. It produced lots of outstanding breeding and competition horses in series. There are about 50 licensed stallions, almost 100 state premium mares and more than 850 competitions horses with a total amount of lifetime winnings of more than EUR 1.300.000 million, registered with the Hannoveraner Verband until 2013.
The stallions LAURIES CRUSADOR XX, CAVALIER and BOLERO contribute to the high percentage of 74% refining blood in LA DIVINA's pedigree, a fact that is of tremendous importance for breeding successful competition horses. Due to an injury, she had to be withdrawn from the mare performance test, however, she will nevertheless pass on her valuable hereditary qualities to her progeny.
Direct relatives of LA DIVINA are particularly successful. Full sister and state premium mare LUCIA is dam of a stallion by Don Frederico who was licensed in Verden in 2012 and sold to Spain at the Stallion Market. Another full sister, state premium mare LOLA, won the halfbred division at the 2008 Louis-Wiegels-Show. LA DIVINA is also half sister of the licensed stallion WOLKENTÄNZER by Wolkenstein II and of the successful advanced level dressage horse WATERFRONT by Wolkenstein II. Her sister SRI LANKA by Sherwood is dam of the approved stallion HOCHMEISTER by Hochadel, licensed in Verden in 2007 and stationed with the Moritzburg National State Stud. Her sister, state premium mare WINDROSE, produced RUSCHKOI K by Rotspon who was licensed in 2004.
LA DIVINA's dam - state premium mare CAECILIE by Cavalier
The own accomplishments of state premium mare CAECILIE are more than impressive. She was performance tested and entered into the main studbook with highest scores, among them 9 for type and elasticity, 8 for frame, head, neck, correctness and overall impression. Besides, she was nominated state premium mare and first-class awarded at the mare shows in Freiburg/Elbe in 1994 and 1995. She has been producing 15 foals in 18 breeding years, among them the licensed stallion WOLKENTÄNZER by Wolkenstein II, sold to Great Britain, and three state premium mares.
