Awarded Verband Premium 2009

Show Hit's first foal is an exquisite dark bay filly by Premium stallion and Reserve Champion Riccio. She was given a Verband Premium award at her Grading in 2009!

This filly has World Class breeding with Sandro Hit, Rubinstein, Potsdam and Florestan all in her pedigree - a sure combination for pure dressage talent! Her breeding is further enhanced as she also comes from four generations of State Premium mares.

August 2009 Update
Ria is presented for grading with the Westphalian Verband and receives a Verband Premium. This is a huge achievement and we are so delighted for Helen her new owner and of course Show Hit. This is Show Hit's first foal and to have her graded Premium is outstanding. Congratulations Helen and Ria!

June 2009 Update
Ria goes to her first show with Helen and is impeccably behaved and wins not only her in hand class but is also Reserve Champion overall - Huge congratulations to them both!

Ria is elegant and refined with exquisite looks. She is showing superb movement with a powerful hind leg and big uphill canter. She has a beautiful head and is very modern with very long legs - to make 16.2. She has a fantastic temperament with bags of confidence and has been well handled and is good to lead and load. She will make a top class dressage horse and is Champion in the making.

St.Pr.St Show Hit 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.

Riaza’s sire Riccio received premium status at his grading in 2003 and went on to be the Vice Champion of Westfalen Final. He was the Vice Champion of the 2004 Bundeschampionate at the age of three and has won the qualifier for last year’s Bundeschampionate for 5 year old dressage horses. Riccio will represent Germany at the 2007 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden, Germany, August 2-5, 2007. More than 30 horses per age division were presented, but selectors Heinz Lemmermann and Holger Schmezer picked 6 horses per age division in total. Riccio is one of the most successful young stallions at the National Stud at Warendorf and hails from the famous stallions Rubinstein and Florestan – a sure combination for pure dressage talent!

Congratulations to Martine and Helen - Ria's lovely new owners!
