Donarweiss GGF

Conformation, athleticism, trainability and temperament
Donarweiss GGF passes along to his offspring his outstanding conformation, athleticism, trainability, temperament, and charisma. His long and successful competition career with Genay Vaughn took them from Junior/Young Riders, to U25, to open dressage success, including the 2015 US Team European Tour where they were the high-score U25 American combination.

Donarweiss was Champion of his 30-Day Test with an overall score of 8.33. His versatility was showcased with individual scores of 9 for rideability and jumping technique. In his first season of FEI, Donarweiss was ranked first for the AHS/USDF Hanoverian All-Breed’s Awards. In 2009, Donarweiss won the USDF Region 8 Prix St. Georges Championships. The following season Donarweiss finished second in the AHS/USDF Hanoverian All-Breeds Awards and eleventh in the nation for Intermediaire II with scores to 72%.

Purchased by Starr Vaughn Equestrian in late 2011, Donarweiss and Genay Vaughn qualified just a few months later for the US National Championships where they finished third. Later that season they won the Team Silver Medal at the NAYRC. In 2013, the pair qualified for the Brentina Cup National Championships and won the Region 7 USDF Championships for Intermediaire II Jr/Yr.

Donarweiss’s sire, De Niro, was Reserve Champion of his performance test with a score of 141.93. De Niro had a wonderful sport career with over 24 wins at S-Level and has sired 108 States Premium mares, 25 approved sons, and numerous FEI level competitors earning him the top spot on the 2012 WBFSH Dressage Sire Ranking List. Donarweiss’s damsire, Hohenstein, was Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test. Further back in Donarweiss’s pedigree we find Archipel, a son of the 1994 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year Argentan, which brings additional scope and jumping ability.

Donarweiss offspring are consistently winning at breed shows, and his oldest offspring are now proving themselves under saddle at both dressage and hunter competitions. Dior (Donarweiss/Enrico Caruso) was the USDF Horse of the Year for weanling fillies in 2011 and Denver HTF (Donarweiss/Riverman) was the Reserve Champion in both 2012 & 2013 for the USDF/GAIG East Coast Finals at Dressage at Devon.

Donarweiss is a 2001 Hanoverian Stallion (De Niro / Hohenstein / Archipel) who is approved by the American Hanoverian Society, German PRPS, ISR/Oldenburg NA, CWB, and AWS; he is a 3 Star Stallion with ISR/Oldenburg N.A. “DW” stands 16 Hands, homozygous black, and tested N/N for WFFS (not a carrier).
