Superb foal by Dimaggio out of our State Premium mare Floria. Dimaggio (Don Primero/World Cup I), who is well known for passing on both movement and rideability to his offspring, has had an invaluable impact on both English and German breeding as evidenced by the numerous Dimaggio offspring in competition, his more than 20 licensed sons and the championships his offspring have won. In 2012 he had an FN Breeding Value for Dressage of 146/89% (Jumping 73/76%) and a 2012 Hanoverian Breeding Value for dressage of 157/85% (Jumping: 67/85%) demonstrating his great reliability. Floria is a Westphalian State Premium mare who scored a nine for her suitability for dressage in her performance test and is sired by the legendary stallion Furst Heinrich.
Dante is already an impressive individual, well muscled and statuesque in build, with a rich mahogany bay colour, a lovely eye and handsome face. He is becoming darker as he ages and his adult coat will be dark bay. He has a powerful and correct rectangular frame and eye catching presence. He has three active paces, with an expressive trot and canter, and his whole way of going demonstrates the suppleness and athleticism that is so desirable in a prospective dressage horse. He is a curious, energetic, fun loving really gorgeous model of a horse and he seems to know it too!

About Waverley Stud
Based in the heart of England (near Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire - home of the British Dressage National Championships) we breed and train a small number of dressage horses each year. Using only Elite or State Premium Dressage mares of good character, together with the best international stallions (all of which are Performance Tested and proven) our stock is of exceptional quality and trainability.
Leni won the 4 year old class at Manor Grange yesterday with a score of 8.46. He was an absolute star. Thrilled with him. He has a real work ethic and three fabulous paces, so we're excited about his future.
