First Dance

Classic Florestan I/Donnerhall Bloodlines. Proven Dressage Competitor & Sire.
First Dance was enthusiastically acclaimed at his 2006 Hanoverian Licensing in Verden, Germany, because of his perfectly cadenced rhythm and powerful movement. He placed in the 2009 Bundeschampionat for young dressage horses and won many young horse dressage classes, moving on to success in M**-classes and competed successfully at Prix St. Georges Level. First Dance earned Elite Stallion status based on his German 30-Day Test scores (walk 9, rideability 8.75, character 8.5, constitution 8.5, trot 8.5, canter 8.5) combined with his high placing at the Bundeschampionat.

His sire, Florestan I, produced more than 70 licensed sons, over 180 States Premium mares and countless sport horses including Floriano ridden to a U.S. bronze medal by Stefan Peters. First Dance’s dam SPS Dorina, won the 1A prize each year from 2003-06 at the Aurich-Tannenhausen mare show. She also produced a second licensed stallion, full brother to First Dance. Damsire Donnerhall is a legend of breeding and sport. A double World Champion in dressage, he produced over 100 licensed sons and many extraordinarily successful offspring.

First Dance’s damline is known for producing advanced dressage horses and States Premium mares.

First Dance has a dressage score of 140 points in the estimated breeding evaluation by the FN. He has produced Verden auction foals and riding horses, States Premium mares and three licensed sons, First Flush, First Duke and First Diamond. First Dance passes along traits of elegant, floating movement and uncomplicated rideability. In 2021, Fleur de Lis L (young rider Vanessa Creech-Terauds) continued their success with important wins and placements in the U25 Grand Prix classes and were part of the Gold Medal Canadian Team at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. Noted dressage competitors include Foxey Lady L (Third Level), First Song KF, and Fighting Chance L. First Crusader won top honors at the 2020 USDF Breeders Championship. Foreign Prince HU was a breed show Champion as a yearling and Flash Point HU has also been successful in the breed ring winning Materiale and USDF Dressage Prospect championships.

Owner Louise Leatherdale has been honored twice as USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year.
