Dressman’s sire Domingo was also a successful showjumper and breeding stallion. He sired 14 approved stallions and the same number of state premium mares. The paternal dam-line is a highly interesting mare family that has also been very successful. The mare, Suleika, is the dam of 5 approved stallions and 7 of her 8 daughters were awarded State Premium. Her most accomplished daughter is Dressman’s dam, State Premium Stute (Mare) Nadin. St.Pr.St. Nadin is the dam of six approved stallions. Her success as a broodmare was recognized when she became the 1992 National Broodmare of the Year. Niklas I, the dam-sire of Nadin sired five approved stallions and 17 state premium mares. Dressman’s breeding goes back to Dandy who, as a foundation sire, is responsible for the breeding of successful international champions such as Derano Gold, Dornik B and Deinhard B.
Mona (Merafic – Nelson – Golden Echo)
Davidoff’s Dam’s line is just as impressive, his Dam, Mona is by the very successful pony Merafic, who was the leading German pony sire from 1983 to 1990. Merafic produced several internationally and nationally successful showjumping and eventing champions. Mona’s dam’s bloodline (via Nazim) brought European Multi Dressage Champion Nadir and his daughter, European Multi Dressage Champion, Napoli. Don Pedro by Nazim won individual European Championship titles in Dressage and Showjumping, a double talent that is particularly rare. Mona’s brother, Mentos, is still today a strong influence in the German Riding Pony breeding.
How it all began…
Heike Miller (formerly Hunscher-Brandt), owner of Westfalia Sport Pony Stud, bred her mare Mona by Merafic to the very successful Pony Stallion Dressman. Davidoff, a very athletic bay foal, resulted from this combination. When Heike emigrated to New Zealand she took both Mona and her foal by foot with her. Heike’s goals, which she successfully achieved, were to breed performance ponies for dressage, showjumping and eventing competitions with excellent movement and temperament. Mona whose sire Merafic has produced several internationally and nationally successful showjumping and eventing champions, such as Micado, European Eventing Pony Champion 1989, and Merano, Double German Eventing Champion. Merafic topped the German National Pony Sire Rating from 1983 to 1990. Mona’s dam’s bloodline (via Nazim) brought European Multi Dressage Champion Nadir and his daughter, European Multi Dressage Champion, Napoli. KM Performance Ponies were lucky enough to purchase Davidoff, and we are enjoying continuing what Heike started – “Breeding the Ponies of Tomorrow for the Kids of Today”.
