EM Saaliyah Lind by (Stedinger x EM Donatasha by De Niro)
showing off while 10 1/2 months pregnant she is due to foal in 2 weeks to the Don Schufro son Dannebrog this will bring the Brentano II line as well as some very valuable rakehner lines to the foals pedigree. This is sure to be a very lovely foal with fantastic movement.
The fantastic mare that was imported and raised on our farm has taken her change from Broodmare to Top dressage mount as the champion she is. She was Developing horse champion in 2012 and has won many CDI at the Intermediate level. She will start show Grand Prix this season and will hopefully take Europe by storm soon as well.
Here is the write up from Smart Pak’s webpage
For the FEI Intermediaire-1 Freestyle, there were seven entries. Winning the class with a score of 75.125% was Roffman and Her Highness O, a 10-year-old Hanoverian mare by Hohenstein x Weltmeyer.
Roffman, who owns and runs Lionshare Dressage in Wellington, FL, with Endel Ots, has owned Her Highness O for three years. She found the mare after her career as a broodmare. Despite little knowledge under saddle, she thought the mare was “pretty special,” and developed her with then co-owner Jennifer Lind. She purchased her outright this past August. “I have to thank Jennifer Lind for letting me do that. She made it possible,” Roffman said. The pair won the Developing Horse championship last year. This is only their third CDI international small tour and it was their first freestyle together.
Roffman remarked, “I have to say thank you to Terri Gallo because that freestyle is five years old and it works with every horse. All my stars fell and aligned today because it was not exactly the most well-prepared test! It’s a really great mare and I’m very lucky to have her.
Future in the Grand prix ring…… Blue ribbons here we come
Champion European Grand Prix bloodlines in the US
Can’t go wrong with the strong lines of Balou du Rouet (sire olympic gold medalist) x Em Christiahna by Contendro x full sister to Escudo I & II (full brothers grand prix horses)
The Grand prix horses that cover her pedigree are many and on both her sire and dams side. The very best pedigree for performance and later a second job as a mother of future champions! You don’t need to shop in Europe with bloodlines like these, qualify for US awards with an American bred Champion!
You can have it all and dream rideability…..
This lovely filly is as sweet and easy going as she is flashy!
Reserve champion at the American Hanoverian foal futurity on Sep 20, she was very well mannered and easy going off the farm.
Balencia is always agreeable and finds joy in working with people, she will follow you around the pasture just to be with you. My 2 year old son climbs on her fence while she is eating and goes into her pasture and she just stands there, I have also put him on her back.
What an easy going girl she will suit any level of rider with ease, I expect better rideability then her mother who scored the elite status score of nearly an 8.
Find the joy we have with her in your own barn.
Eyvindur Lind (El bundy x EM Saaliyah by Stedinger x EM De Niro x Wanderbrusch II)
Evan is now branded with the AHS this lovely boy helped his mom gain her Elite title as well.
Judges Meg Williams & Mary Giddens
said of Evan ” lovely head and neck, very nice trot, leggy modern type, can see his mom stamped him very elegant foal”.
What a fine foal indeed he is so fancy with so much movement potential at a young age. He is a special guy, we are very pleased. There are many more photos of him on “his page” under broodmares follow his moms link.
The lovely Welene Lind (Wolkentanz I x Em Donatasha by De Niro)
Is greeted with a fan base everywhere she goes, easy to see why when she is not only a lovely young filly but she is so sweet and friendly. A true gem for future sport and breeding, she looks very much like Weltmeyer with the face of SPS Lovely dam to Wolkentanz. She was shown in the American Hanoverian yearling futurity on Oct 12 where she was award as Reserve Champion. Quit a bit full of herself that say and had no interest in trotting for the judge, showed off her lovely canter.
Congratulations Mary Beth on do a great job raising up this lovely daughter of the late Wolkentanz I.
Eyvindur Lind (El Bundy) meets his real mom Saaliyah Lind (Stedinger x EM De Niro) for the first time at their Hanoverian inspection at Pennock Point in Reddick Florida. They both seemed to enjoy the meeting they acted like they had always been together. Very sweet!

Balencia Lind (Balou Du Rouet x Em Christiahna by Contendro)
Reserve Champion yearling filly
Such a good girl, she moved out better in the arena then outside, well mannered and great for her first time off the farm this year.
Leonisis Lind (Le Primeur x Em Donatasha by De Niro)
Isis was Reserve Champion of the 2 yr old fillies, this was her first outing this year and she was a star as she always is. Another well mannered filly who did so well in the ring great walk with lots of over step and really moved out in hand at the trot. Its great to work with such smart young horses.
Boadicea Lind (Balou du Rouet x Em Christiahna by Contendro) full sister to Balencia was Champion of the yearling fillies. Cara has done a great job with her, Bo is the older of the two sisters and was in a great growth stage at the futurity yeah! Congratulations Cara & Bo
