The full brother to Larkshill Supremacy has arrived and he is magnificent!

Power, presence and huge effortless movement combined with a World Class dressage pedigree. With outstanding conformation, he is elegant and modern - a real stunner with extremely long legs!

I am totally smitten by Decadence, he is charming, captivating and totally adorable.

Decadence is awarded a Foal Premium by the Oldenburg Verband who praised his type, conformation and exceptional movement.

Sire De Niro
In 2008 De Niro was named the Hanoverian Stallion of the year on the basis of his exceptional quality of his offspring and his influence on breeding. De Niro is a legendary sire due to his outstanding movement, extremely high 'rideability' and beautiful type. De Niro was Reserve Champion Performance Test scoring 9s in all three gaits and was awarded the highest scores for 'rideability' (9,67).

At 7 De Niro was already succeeding at Grand Prix. In 2001 he was Dressage Champion at the German Championships. In 2002 he was the winner of the international Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special and in 2003 he was the winner of the German Dressage Derby in Hamburg. De Niro's sire, Donnerhall, held the highest dressage breeding value index of all stallions. De Niro's dam was a successful dressage competitor producing an approved stallion in Westfalia. His dam's sire, Akzent II, is regarded as one of the best sires for producing 'rideability' in modern sport horse breeding, and has produced many approved stallions and expensive auction horses.

De Niro has already produced more than 60 approved sons. His foals are consistently of an elegant, modern type, showing excellent conformation as well as outstanding movement. His first foal crop got an overall mark of 9 by the Oldenburg commission, and based on the exceptional quality of his foals De Niro received the "Hauptpraemiensieger" (Main Premium Champion) award in 1997. His offspring are extremely popular all over the world, consistently reaching top prices at auctions.

Dam St.Pr.St Show Hit
St.Pr.St Show Hit is one of only 100 mares worldwide to be approved to be bred to the Dressage sensation Moorlands Totilas! She is expecting a foal by Totilas in May 2011. She was purchased at the 2005 Brightwells auction and is a truly sensational mare. She comes from three generations of State Premium mares. She is by the World Champion stallion Show Star who is one of Sandro Hit’s most successful young sons.  Show Hit was awarded her State Premium title at the prestigious Elite mare show in Münster-Handorf where she competed against 80 mares selected from throughout Germany. She was awarded outstanding marks for her conformation, movement and type.

In 2008 Carl Hester named Show Hit the 2008 Reserve Champion Dressage Broodmare at the BEF Elite Championship Show. Her 2008,2009 and 2010 foals by De Niro foal have all been awarded the coveted Oldenburg Foal Premium. Her first foal Larkshill Riaza was graded with a Verband Premium with the Westfalian verband.

Her sire Show Star is a Premium Stallion, he became vice Champion riding horse at the Oldenburg State Championships in Rastede as a 3 year old. He went on to be the Champion at the German Federal Bundeschampionate as a 3 year old & Vice Champion as a 4 year old. Show Star is still a young Stallion and is currently competing at PSG. Sandro Hit of course needs no introduction - he is already writing sporting and breeding history!
