We had orginally decided to retain Calliope for our breeding program, but a financial down turn, and several yrs of ill health has kept us from moving forward with our breeding program. At this time we are selling our most breeding stock. Calliope has a minimal work history, she was put undersaddle 3 yrs ago. Unfortunately this was during a period of prolonged ill health for me, with an unexpected surgery and lengthy, 5wk, hospital stay followed by a protracted recovery period, was cause for several young horses to be returned to pasture. We brought her back into the barn earlier this summer, and have had a 13yr old student riding her lightly for us since. She is jumping 2’6”-3’, and ready to compete at 1st level dressage. We have taken her off property several times, she was amazingly relaxed and handled the change in scenery right in stride. Working in both an open field and jumping in the open for the first time, and going quietly in a grass dressage arena. She loads and trailers easy, has always been very happily barefoot, no vices, except to paw occasionally in the crosstie. (Though she knows better!)  Has never taken a lame step nor had any illness. Calliope is a super light and willing partner, not spooky and always gives 110%. Suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate rider.
Sired by the imported KWPN stallion UDance Ster Predicate K, a top 5 USDF/Cosequin National Champion stallion, top 10 US stallion NA/KWPN, top 3 NA/KWPN IBOB, top 25 USDF Horse of the Year w/scores in mid 70’s, trained thru I2, working 1 tempi’s and piaffe/passage. Fantastic workman like character, shows incredible jumping talent, easily jumping over 4’ after a few wks training. Sired by Kennedy (Olympic Ferro) – Salluut. Calliope’s dam is F. Whinny Pooh, by Walldorf – highest soring Hannoverian stallion to finish in the 100 day test in Germany, total 187pts, out of La Le Lou, one of the highest scoring Hannoverian mares to win her mare performance test with all 8's and 9's, earn her SPA status, and produced 2 SPS daughters that remained in Germany. Both won their subsequient mare testings with high marks. Her daughter, What a Lovely, has produced two approved stallions, the first, Don Federic, won his Mecklenberg liscensing with high honors.
