Beschreibung

Sit on - get going. Smirnoff brings a lot of presence to the arena with his considerable size alone and is really nice to ride thanks to his sensitivity. He has developed very stably and is learning more and more to handle his body.

We won the advanced (S) class in Heroldsberg in June 2018 at our first public performance together. In the further course of the season victories and placings followed, including second place in the qualification for the Nürnberger Burg Burg in Schenefeld. At the beginning of 2019 victories and top placings in the Small Tours of Zeutern, Dielsdorf/SUI and Münster were added.

The licensed and tested Smirnoff won the Hanoverian Riding Horse Championships at the age of four under the saddle of Manuel Bammel in 2014 and the dressage horse Bundeschampionat the following year. At the age of seven, the first advanced (S) level successes were added.

Smirnoff is descended from the Oldenburg Dressage Horse Vice World Champion and Bundeschampion Sir Donnerhall I.

The dam Flora has several successful half siblings. Dolcetto (by Drosselklang II) was approved for breeding and Lumberjack (by Lauries Crusador xx) achieved successes in Intermediate tests in the USA.

The dam's sire Florencio I became Double World Breeding Dressage Horse Champion under Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED and sired about 50 licensed sons.

In third and fourth place in the pedigree follow the jumper sires Landadel and Grannus.

From the dam line come successful show jumpers up to advanced (S) level.
