DR DELILAH D (Donner Bube x Capella) is a big filly with big scope and movement! Her movement exemplifies her blood, giving her the potential to be a top dressage horse. Her jump through the chute shows good form, quick reaction, and plenty of scope. Her breeding allows her to be a crossover horse to show well in all disciplines.
Sire: DONNER BUBE Winner of his stallion test in Switzerland with 9 out of 10 in general impression, quality of gaits, and jumping style (all other marks were 8 out of 10), Donner Bube represents the “magical cross” of the immortal Donnerhall on a States Premium daughter of Pik Bube I. Donner Bube competed successfully in show jumping prior to his exportation from
Switzerland and in Canada and U.S.A. with Kathy Playdon, and has competed in Dressage up to Prix St Georges level. sound, His offspring are versatile competitors with individuals successful in Dressage, Hunter, Show Jumping, and Combined Driving. He has produced offspring that have won or placed in all divisions of the Canadian Performance Futurities, including the 2008 CWHBA year-end show, Donner Bube sired the winner of the Alberta sires foal futurity as well as the dam of the winner of the open foal futurity, who was also named Young Horse Champion! He is the sire of Dia – 2007 Alberta Champion Mare and Reserve Champion 3-year-old Materiale performer, Danya – 2008 Reserve Champion mare.
Dam: CAPELLA (Conteur(Contender) x Warkanson) is a Hanoverian mare with exceptional bloodlines: Sired by CONTEUR who was awarded a premium at his licensing, and is a stallion of the first order in Germany: He won his 30-day test in Adelheidsdorf and then took the Reserve Champion title at his 70-day test where he won the partial index for rideability with a
clear margin in his favor and, as a result, was leased for several years by the State Stud in Celle. He has sired several champion foals, and State Premium Mares in Germany. His sire CONTENDER is the founder of an international line of show jumping champions; deeply influenced by the legendary CALYPSO II as he can be found in both the pedigree of
CONTENDER and CONTEUR’s dam OFARIM sired by RASPUTIN (RAMIRO). CAPELLA’s dam WAJAMA is descended from the legendary WELTMEYER (WORLD CUP I) – known for reshaping the Hanoverian breed as we know it. Not only did he win all his stallion tests, but many of today’s internationally prominent dressage horses are sired by WELTMEYER or out of one of his daughters.
