Ronja is a Stallion mother and State Premium performance tested Hanoverian mare by Rotspon. She comes from a very successful family, her dam is also a State Premium mare, by the legendary stallion Weltmeyer.

St.Pr.St. Ronja has already bred a graded Stallion just like her dam St.Pr.St. Wanja who bred the Premium graded stallion, Blue Hors Lodestar - who of course is Ronja’s brother!

We are thrilled that this superb mare has joined the Larkshill herd!

I am so excited to have found this mare. Ronja has a perfect pedigree for breeding dressage performance horses. Ronja achieved fantastic scores at her grading and performance test before starting her very successful breeding career.

Ronja's dam St.Pr. St. Wanja was a very good sport horse in addition to breeding the Premium stallion Blue Hors Lodestar and of course Ronja and her other sisters and brothers! As a three year old St.Pr. St. Wanja out of nine competitions was placed First 5 times and 4 times Second to Fourth place. Her grandmother "Ballerina" was even better. She was first nine times and 6 times second and 4 times third or fourth from 19 starts!

Many of her Ronja's foals have been selected and sold through the Verden Elite auction. Her 2006 foal Darnell by Don Frederico was purchased as a foal by Paul Schockemöhle, went on to grade with the Oldenburg Verband in 2008 and sold in 2010 at the PSI Auction for 190,000 Euros!

Her 2008 filly also by Don Frederico was Champion 2 year old and received the 1a Prize at a mare show in 2010 and has been awarded State Premium status. Diva's grades at her performance test were Trot 9, Canter 8.5 Walk 8.5.

Sire Rotspon
Rotspon is by the legendary stallion Rubinstein I. Like his father, Rotspon has spectacular movement, a beautiful temperament and outstanding ability. He has an incredible rideability as does his foals. His first foals totally met the high expectations of Celle. Numerous foals have already enriched the Verden foal auctions. His foals have beautiful heads and a good conformation and they have a very elastic trot and a ground covering walk. In 2009, 29 offspring were terrific advertisements for their sire in advanced level dressage tests. He has 17 licensed sons, 134 state premium mares, 496 main stud book mares, and 209 auction horses. Winning sum of progeny Euro 248,890. He is recognised as one of the top dressage sires in Germany and is fifth place among the top 5% of all national dressage stallions.

At his performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 1998 Rotspon was overall Champion and Dressage Champion. He has a character and temperament score of 9. A conformation score of 8, a jumping ability score of 8 and rideability scores of 9 and 10. He has an outstanding walk score of 8, (the average is 6.3) his trot is also very high of 8.33 (against the average of 6.38). His canter score of 9 puts him again well above the average.

Weltmeyer (World Cup I) is considered to be one of the All Time Great Hanoverian sires. With his breathtaking movement and presence, Weltmeyer won his Stallion Performance Test in 1987 placing first in dressage with 143.94 points and third in jumping with 141.44. In 1989, he was Stallion Conformation Champion and DLG Champion and in 1998, he was named "Stallion of the Year". As a sire, Weltmeyer has proven himself to be a producer of Champions. To date, he has produced 70 Approved sons, 242 State Premium mares and countless top riding horses. It is no wonder that Weltmeyer is considered to be the "Stallion of the Century".
