Another stunning black filly by Ampere from our wonderful mare Elite/Pr St Machita who was bred by Oldenburg royalty; Georg Sieverding. From Machita's mare line come the Champion stallions Fürstenball and Sieger Hit and many more. Her sire Ampere was Champion of the KWPN stallion licensing, then Champion of the performance test and has bred a Champion stallions - how impressive is that!
This exquisite filly has it all, world class genetics, long legs, refinement and super powerful movement with a sweet personality. She will be retained as a future competition horse.


July 2019
We have had a wonderful few days watching OLH Pr. Larkshill Mystique at the Elite mare show in Rastede and her compete at the Oldenburger Landesturnier. What a privilege to be there. I am absolutely thrilled that she was crowned Oldenburg Landesturnier Vice Champion with an overall score of 8.7 with 9.5 for the canter AND best of all selected to represent the Oldenburg Verband at the Bundeschampionate! Huge thanks as always to our wonderful rider Anne-Kathrin Pohlmeier for producing her so perfectly and to Marco Weber for all the amazing photos.


May 2019
I am so excited to announce that Larkshill Mystique has been awarded the Oldenburg Haupt Premium and invited to the Elite mare show at Rastede!!!
Canter 10, Trot 9, Walk 8.5 and Rideability 9.5!!! 

Huge thanks as always to our wonderful rider Anne-Kathrin Pohlmeier for producing her so perfectly. Her full sister  St.Pr.St. Larkshill Magnifique OLD  also received a 10 for her canter and was invited to Rastede and went on to be Reserve Champion so fingers crossed for the future! 

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 - Elite / 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! In 2018 Machita was awarded Elite Status by the Oldenburg Verband on the basis of her exceptional offspring!

Her daughter St Pr St Magnifique OLD by Ampere, was not only awarded the State Premium title and received a perfect 10 for her canter but was invited to the Elite mare show at Rastede. There she went on to be the Oldenburger Landesturnier Reserve Champion and selected to represent the Oldenburger Verband at the Bundeschampionate. She was placed 7th at the Bundeschampionate and Oldenburg verband 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.

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.

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.
