Ginger Spice, one of the most perfect foals ever born at our farm, completly correct and absolutly beautiful. Although looking like a chestnut she will be a grey.

Her dam Riviera was the 2006 Canadian Champion Mare in both the open Hanoverian and the Canadian bred Hanoverian Mare shows in Canada last year and was also Hanoverian Mare Performance test winner. Riviera is a lovely athletic mare, with a hugh canter. Riv will stay in our breeding program due to her genetic backround from her mother and will be a supplier of foals for many years to come.

Riviera's sire, Raphael, needs no introduction of course, he has advanced to a stallion of world repute, top international riders value the quality of Raphael offspring. These include Ramina, Ricci, Rockefeller, Raphaelo, Robinson and many more. Raphael has proved himself numerous approved sons, such as: performance test winners Ravallo and Ragazzo; Radiator, ridden by rene Tebbel is currently one of the most successful stallions in international showjumping; and Canada's own Rio Grande, who himself won his performance test, and shows very successfully in international showjumping, qualifying for the 1996 Olympics.

Graf Top is proving himself as an excellent sire of jumping talent, as well as gifted dressage horses. He is the #2 ranked German Hanoverian Stallion for his daughters' breeding values for jumping (score 171), but also ranks high for dressage breeding values. Graf Top is out of a full sister to the dam of Laptop, and combines the jumping talent and willingness of both Graf Grannus and Calypso II.
