This filly is a real Super Model! We are thrilled with this modern, elegant black filly by Ampere out Pr. St Machita. Ampere was Champion of the KWPN stallion licensing, then Champion of the performance test and bred a Champion stallion what more can you ask for!

Magnifique is outstanding with elastic and expansive gaits with excellent reach in her foreleg and lift and bend through her hocks and knees. She is is a fabulous dressage prospect for any serious competitor and with her exceptional bloodlines would also be a tremendous asset to any dressage stud!

September 2017 - The German Oldenburg breed society has honoured Magnifique with the OLD designation! The OLD suffix is only awarded to the best Oldenburg bred horses which will promote the breed at high profile dressage competitions world wide.

June 2017 Update
I am so incredibly proud to announce that Larkshill Magnifique has been invited to compete at Rastede,  the Elite Oldenburg show! Magnifique has just completed her mare performance with a 10 for her canter, 9 for rideability and 8.5 for trot and was awarded the Haupt Premium the highest award you can receive!! Huge thanks go to her owner Olivier Debilde in Belgium who has given her every opportunity to realise her potential. Huge thanks also to David Taylor and his team who has produced her so beautifully and sympathetically to achieve this amazing result!! I am a very happy breeder!!

Sire - Ampère
Ampère was a success from the start, when he left the arena as the most expensive foal at the foal auction Borculo. In February 2008 at the stallion show Den Bosch he was the convincing Champion. After, he was the winner of the 70 day performance test in Ermelo, with the following marks: walk 8, trot 9, canter 9.5, suppleness 9, self carriage and balance 8.5, rideability and work ethics 9, talent for dressage 9.  Ampère is the third licensing champion of father Rousseau in a row. Rousseau himself was silver medallist at the World Championship for young horses in 2003. 

Damsire Flemmingh is the sire of many Grand Prix horses like Krack C under Anky van Grunsven and Lingh with rider Edward Gal. Mother Larivola has the predicate keur. Out of the dam line descend many successful dressage and jumping horses like the approved stallions Mythos (s. Mythens xx) and Gringo (s. Ramiro). 

From Ampère's foal report on KWPN, he passes on very good movement, producing a uniform collection of foals from a range of different mares. The trot shows good length of stride and very good body use. The foals have a good easy canter, with lots of balance and self carriage, they also collect well  and one of his foals has sold for €200,000 in Vechta!

Ampère was one of the best sires at the last most important licensing of Europe. In 2012 and 2013, more than 20 sons were approved at the licensing of KWPN, Westphalia, Southern German Verbands and Holstein. He produced the Young Stallion Champions of the KWPN and the Westphalian Verband as well as Premium stallions.

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.
