Santana is a stunningly beautiful 6 yr old States Premium Mare by
Singular Joter. In her mare performance test she scored 8 walk,
8 trot and 8 canter, and a rare overall 8 in hand.

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.

him 1st of 72 stallions at his performance test in Adelheidsdorf.
