Sire Janeiro Platinum
Janeiro Platinum is a modern type stallion who has outstanding gaits and top rideability. He finished his performance test in 2018 with a total score of 8.50 points and received a 9.0 for canter, proving he is a young stallion with lots of promise. Janeiro Platinum transmits his excellent type, his correctness and his fantastic quality in all three paces to his foals.In 2019, he won the bronze medal at the Danish Championships with the overall score of 90.80 points: 9.2 for trot, 8.5 for walk, 9.0 for canter, 9.5 for rideability and 9.2 for the overall impression.
His sire Sezuan, the unrivalled winner of his performance test with an amazing score of 987.50 points, Sezuan made history when he obtained a record breaking result of  ten scores of 10.0, more than meeting the high expectations placed on him. Sezuan is now triple world champion and working towards Grand Prix.
His dam Black Beauty an elite mare in the KWPN studbook. His damsire UB40, is a modern, long-lined stallion who is frequently used to add refinement to more old fashioned mares, and the same can be said for Apache. UB40 was reserve champion of his performance test in 2002, and had several wins at international prix st georges level. He is also the sire of licensed stallion El Capone, (damsire OO Seven). UB40's sire Olivi, grand prix and keur stallion, is by the legendary Jazz, from the Utopia mare line. UB40's dam, state premium mare Kilucienne, is by the influential Trakehner Michaelangelo, out of a daughter of the KWPN foundation stallion, Farn.

Dam OLH Pr Larkshill Scandalous
Stunning mare by World Champion stallion Fürst Heinrich out of Elite & Pr. St. Larkshill Supremacy by De Niro - full sister to Oldenburg licensed stallion Larkshill Debonair. This mares' pedigree is absolutely World Class her sire Fürst Heinrich was World Champion and sire of double World Champion mare Woodlander Farouche, out of a full sister to a graded stallion who herself is an Elite premium mare and by the world's leading dressage sire De Niro - it doesn't get much better than that!

In 2016 Scandal was awarded the Oldenburg Haupt Premium (formally State Premium) after a very successful performance test in Germany.  For me it is very special as it is second generation breeding as I bred her mother Elite Pr St Larkshill Supremacy.

Fürst Heinrich, a celebrated World Champion of five-year old dressage stallions in 2003, became a star sire within just a few years. He was awarded a Premium at the NRW Licensing in 2000, he then went on to become Champion of his Performance Test in Münster-Handorf. In 2002 he was a Main Premium winner at Oldenburg.

In his short breeding career ( as he sadly dies aged 7) he has produced well over 40 Licensed Stallions including many Premium stallions, Champions and Reserve Champions. At the 2004 Oldenburger Licensing, Fürst Heinrich was well represented with two sons, Van the Man and First Forez being awarded Champion and Reserve Champion respectively. The impressive list of State Premium mares sired by Fürst Heinrich is further evidence of the consistent quality being produced. The list includes Fantastica, Champion Mare of the 2005 Westphalen Elite Mare Show, Feh, 1d Premium Mare and Furstin, 1h Premium Mare, at the 2005 Rheinland Elite Mare Show. The Oldenburger Elite Mare Show in Rastede resulted in two Fürst Heinrich daughters finishing in the Brilliant Ring, 1f Premium for Gloriette and 1h Premium for Deotlinger Deern. Herzfurstin was awarded 1d Premium at the 2006 Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar Elite Mare Show, and Famagusta, 1j at the Rheinland Mare Show. Fürst Heinrich delivered top priced auction foals from his first foal crop and in 2006 his son, Fürstenball ( who went on to sire the Champion Oldenburg Stallion 2012 from his first foal crop!) sold for the record price of 110,000 Euros at the Oldenburger Foal Auction. His first foal crops produced Champion foals at regional shows and a daughter won the German Foal Champion in 2003.
