Pr.St. Machita has her second foal, a sublime colt by Métall, sire of Carl Hester's Grand Prix and Olympic team Gold medal winning stallion Uthopia!

This colt is refined and elegant combined with super movement and a sweet character, we are thrilled with him.

We have called him Larkshill Maestro as we believe he will be a " Master" in the dressage world!

Sire - Métall
This impressively built stallion competed successfully up to Prix St. Georges and produced several Grand Prix horses and licensed sons. The most striking of his progeny is Uthopia, who won team gold at the European Championships in Rotterdam and team gold as well as silver in both the Grand Prix Freestyle and the Special at the 2012' Olympic Games in London. He often received a score of 10.0 for trot. With his son Uthopia, he already made dressage history in view of lightness, mechanics as well as talent for piaffe and passage.

Métall also produced licensed stallions such as Special D, Maserati, Memphis, Modjo, Uthopia and Ufo. Numerous progeny are competing successfully at advanced level in the dressage arena, but also in the jumping-course they are successful at 1.50 m classes, such as Rentall/Kate Levy. His daughter Rabiola was the celebrated Grand Champion in the American Devon in 2006. His son Ucento placed himself in the medal ranks at the European Young Rider’s Championships in 2009 and 2010.

According to KWPN, Métall gained rightly a very high breeding value and is noted with nearly 40% of Thoroughbred blood. The sire Ferro achieved the team silver medal as member of the Dutch team at the Olympic Games in 2000, placed sixth at the World Championships in Rome and second in the World Cup final in 1999. Ferro produced numerous top horses. In the dressage world ranking of WBFSH he is in fourth place. His licensed son Rousseau was himself Vice World Champion for young dressage horses and managed the masterpiece to present the KWPN Champion Stallion for the third time in a row. Dam’s sire Ramiro belongs to the most famous sires in the world and produced numerous international championship horses like Olympic gold medallist Ratina Z.

Dam - Pr. St. Machita
Machita is an impressive, athletic mare from one of the best mare families in Germany. She comes from 3 generations of State Premium and Elite mares and is a Premium and performance tested mare herself. She thrills with her powerful uphill movement and striking looks and she has the sweetest character we have ever known! Machita has already bred an Oldenburg Premium foal by Rohdiamant called Larkshill Mirella.

Machita was bred by the famous Oldenburg breeder Georg Sieverding. His phenomenal mare family has produced more Champions and Premium mares than any other in Modern Oldenburg History. They produced not only the 2007 Oldenburg Licensing Champion Sieger Hit, but also the 2008 Oldenburg Licensing Champion Fürstenball (who sold as a foal for 110,000 euros as a foal!) and in 2009 the second Reserve Champion Hot Spot owned by Blue Hors stud as well as 2 other graded stallions! In 2010 he also bred the Reserve Champion by Florencio as well a another stallion by Sir Donnerhall that shares the same grand mother as Machita. To breed a licensed stallion is a huge achievement but to breed one Champion after another is truly extraordinary. And it is not only the colts who do so well from this family, there are countless Premium mares, many of whom are also Elite and go onto produce Premium daughters.

Pr. St. Machita's grand dam, St.Pr.El Mon Dieu has descended from a dam line of immense success. No less than 10 State Premium mares have been produced from great grandmother Mon Amour. Amongst these is Maradonna ( by Donnerhall ) who was the highest placed 4yo in the German mare Championships, and is the mother of the amazing Fürstenball! Mon Dieu produced an Oldenburg Licensed stallion in 2012 by Sir Donnerhall.

Machita's sire Samarant was Hanoverian Reserve Champion at the World Young Horse Championships in Verden and winner of the local championships for Young Horses in Nienburg as well as successful finalist at the German Championships for Young Horses in Warendorf. Attractive, dynamic Sandro Hit son with three excellent gaits, the quality of which were confirmed at his stallion performance test where he was awarded top scores. Machita's dam sire Florestan sports a sire line of world importance, that of Furioso II. Florestan has produced over 50 stallion sons and over 40 State Premium mares. Florestan is recognized within the breed as a sire who can be relied upon for superior heritability. He produces outstanding basic paces, a beautiful head and lovely temperament. Florestan I has a superb dressage breeding index of 166. He was the Champion of the 1988 Rhineland approval.  His dam, Raute, is a proven show mare in the Rhineland area.  At the age of 3 she was Champion mare of her age group.  In 1983 she won her class at the German Mare show in Verden, and in 1986 she was Champion junior mare at the federal show in Aix-la-Chapelle.
