Broodmares for sale

 

Height: 16.3hh

Age: 11

Selling points: “This stunning mare is by Diamond Hit. Her bloodlines are exceptional. She was lightly backed in Germany before being sold to the UK, where she was used for breeding. She is a prepotent mare that has bred fabulous foals who have all inherited her good temperament. She has never been sick or sorry. She was a lot of money as a youngster and this is a sad sale due to loss of grazing. She is a daughter of Emma Hindle’s grand prix dressage star Diamond Hit, who qualified for the 2008 Olympics and has had 16 grand prix wins and placings. Her dam Laconia has produced a state premium and champion mare by Don Frederico. Paul Schockemohle bought a full brother to Diaderry to prepare for stallion licensing. Diaderry’s full brother was sold at the PSI auction for €72,000. Laconia is by the successful Londonderry – a Weltmeyer X that produced the champion of the 2003 Hanoverian stallion licensing and Locksley II, who was the German federal champion at Warendorf in the four-year-old division and won the dressage phase of his performance test.”
