All of the characteristics that distinguish a main sire have been united in Dante Weltino OLD. A fabulous mover, the 1st Reserve Champion of the 2009 Oldenburg licensing in Vechta fulfilled his performance requirements in 2012 by qualifying for the Bundeschampionat in the class for five-year old dressage horses. The Hanoverian Verband also approved the sparkling black stallion for breeding that year. Ever since Dante Weltino OLD’s first foals arrived, everyone has been talking about them.
A son named De Supreme won the 2nd Lodbergen Foal Championships and was the most expensive colt at the Vechta Elite Foal Auction. Dante Ferro, the 2011 Lodbergen Champion, was knocked-down in Vechta for 29,000 Euros. Another Dante Weltino OLD son named Damenball was sold for 20,000 Euros.
His sire, Danone I, wins ribbons up to Inter I. Four of his sons were licensed, including the second most expensive premium stallion of the Hanoverian licensing who sold for 320,000 Euros and the stallion performance test winner, Dankeschön.
The dam’s sire, Welt Hit II, was listed 2011 among the top ten in the WBFSH’s list of the world’s best dressage stallions.
The granddam, Verb.Pr.St. Riconess, is the dam of the show jumping Bundeschampion and winner of the Badenia Prize, Lumos (by Lordanos) and the Olympic participant St.Pr.A. Riwera OLD (by Welt Hit II).
The great granddam Ricarda is the dam of the Oldenburg Champion Mare, St.Pr./El.St. Riconda (by Contender). This is the successful line of Richilda.
Dante Weltino OLD does not have a red factor and is therefore homozygous (EE) and passes on only dark coats (no chestnuts).
