Her sire Rubignon (by Rubinstein) is a very successful dressage competitor with numerous Grand Prix wins, nationally and internationally. Rubignon’s dam is by the famous Donnerhall. Rubignon, Rubinstein, Donnerhall – three generations of Grand Prix and international performance!
Rey’s dam, Light my Light, is an approved Jockey Club mare with famous Thoroughbred bloodlines. She was a winner at the track, is now a children’s horse with a wonderful sensible temperament.
And Rey has that same kind temperament which makes her a perfect partner for an amateur or even a child.
She has superb ground manners and is very affectionate. She is super easy to handle and not only her temperament, but also her looks make it a pleasure to be around her. She has an elegant, dark bay coat, an expressive head and a well proportioned conformation, representing the modern riding horse type.
Rey is also very convincing for an amateur under saddle. Although only “green broke” she is far enough along for a four year old. She has three solid and balanced gaits. She is easy to sit and handle. She is not spooky, good in trails and shows some potential over jumps.
Rey is suitable for lower level dressage and very interesting for hunter/jumpers, maybe eventing or just as an all-around pleasure horse.

Sold – Congratulations to Janna Dyer @ Dark Horse Dressage, Rocky Ridge, MD
Ben, is a 2008, 16.1 h., chestnut, registered Hanoverian gelding. Ben’s pedigree includes impeccable Hanoverian and Westphalian bloodlines: His sire, the Hanoverian stallion Bordeaux by Bolero (in the two still pictures), was the Reserve Champion of his 100-Day Performance Test. He had the highest dressage index in the testing and he proofed it right by being well known as a highly successful FEI dressage horse. Ben’s grandsire Bolero has become a symbol for the modern riding horse and a producer of upper level dressage horses. Ben’s dam is out of the remarkable Grande, who is the producer of numerous horses excelling in dressage and jumping. Ben’s maternal grandsire, the Westphalian stallion Parabol by Paradox I, was Reserve Champion of his stallion licensing in Oldenburg and won his 100-Day Performance Test. He was a successful Grand Prix dressage horse with several national titles and year-end awards. Paradox I, largely credited for modernizing the breed, bears a very solid jumping production record.
Ben offers a solid conformation and turns heads with his beautiful color and interesting markings. He has three well-balanced, comfortable gaits, with a spectacular trot. He came to our barn as a green broke horse only a little over a month ago. In those few weeks of full training we have discovered his super ride ability and high quality movement and we are amazed by the progress he has made. With a few more weeks of consistent and correct training he should be ready for Training Level dressage.
He has learned good ground manners in just a few weeks, loves attention and tries hard to please.
Ben is best suited for an ambitious amateur, for a calm and confident rider. He is also interesting enough as a “project horse” for a professional.
The fact that Ben is very green for his age is reflected in the reasonable asking price.

She has been lightly started under saddle, she was schooling training level dressage when she was in full training. Unfortunately Snickers developed a Hunter Bump early 2015. She had more than a year off (not all of it was her fault but also the owner’s personal situation) is completely sound now, has had some more time in full training and has made tremendous progress.
She is very well suited for dressage or interesting for the hunter ring. With her prestigious pedigree she is also an excellent brood mare prospect.
Due to personal circumstances her owner, who bought Snickers from the breeder, sadly offers her for a quick sale. At $ 6,500 Snickers is extremely reasonable priced for all the good things she has to offer. The price considers that she is fairly green for her age, on the other hand, you would not be able to purchase a horse her caliber for as little money as her asking price.
