Royal Jewels WOR is an eye catching 2015 Hanoverian chestnut mare by Royal Prince (Rohdiamont x Prince Thatch xx) out of our States Premium mare, SPS Whitney (Wolkenstein II/Matcho xx).
Royal Jewels aka Ruby is an elegant young mare with great presence. She was started under saddle this summer. After two months under saddle, she placed 3rd at Dressage at Devon in the 3 yo fillies Materiale and In Hand classes and placed 6th in the USDFBC Three YO Materiale Championship! More importantly, she handled the atmosphere so well! More than you could ask of any 3 yo! She is just coming back into work after a couple of months off. She is a beautiful mover with very comfortable gaits and a particularly excellent and swinging walk. She is easy in the contact, has a great mind and is super fun to ride! With her excellent breeding and nice compact confirmation she would make an incredible broodmare as well.
Royal Prince offspring are known for their lovely temperaments and trainability. Ruby is certainly demonstrating this. She loads, clips, stands tied to be groomed and loves attention and her people! She is certainly an FEI prospect! She currently stands at 16.1hh and should mature under 16.3hh. $25,000.
Royal Prince's offspring typically share their sire’s stamp of refined, modern type, a correct foundation, trainability and quality movement. Royal Prince won the USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year for the FIVE consecutive years. Royal Prince was approved in the fall of 2001 by the Hanoverian Verband and was a finalist in the 2002 Bundeschampionat. As a 4-year old, Royal Prince was Reserve Champion at his 30-day and 70-day Performance Tests, earning 10’s for his rideability and walk, and 9’s for trot, canter, and willingness to work. He was again a finalist at the Bundeschampionat that same year.
Hilltop Farm imported Royal Prince in the fall of 2003 and in the spring Royal Prince made sweeping wins of all his classes at the 2004 East Coast Selection Trials for the FEI World Championships for Young Horses and earned an unprecedented score of 9.82. At the Championships in Verden, Germany, Royal Prince made a bit of American history when he earned an overall score of 8.84 and a final standing of 4th place in the world! No American entry to date has placed so successfully in this international event. Royal Prince finished the 2004 season by winning the US National Championships for Five-Year-Olds with an overall score of 9.14.
He repeated his East Coast Selection Trials win in 2005 and returned to the World Breeding Championships to represent the US. He consistently earned 9’s and 10’s for his walk, 8’s and 9’s for his trot, canter, and submissiveness over these two years.
Royal Prince's sire, Rohdiamont, is a Rubenstein son who was short listed for the Olympics with rider Lisa Wilcox. His dam sire, Prince Thatch xx, was an influential thoroughbred stallion who produced very good dressage horses.
Ruby’s dam, SPS Whitney, was imported from Germany and scored all 8's and 9's on her mare performance test and received an overall 8.39! Whitney's sire Wolkenstein II is considered to be one of Weltmeyer's best sons: Faultless character, extraordinary willingness to perform, tremendous presence and outstanding dressage and jumping ability. Whitney's dam's sire, Matcho xx, is considered to be one of the most important refining stallions in Hanoverian breeding. This thoroughbred stallion produced 46 licensed sons, 64 states premium daughters and over 200 mane stud book mares. Her offspring have demonstrated good rideability and all have had her excellent hind leg with good hock action.
