born 30. March 2006


by Graf Top and Madonna III by Parco xx


Hanoverian, 1,69m height ~16.25 hands


The first foal of Madonna III is a brown stallion. A very correct, elastic and athletic stallion, who is characterised by his half-bred dam. Like his dam he has an outstanding canter. The type is characterised by his sire Graf Top, same colour, markings and head. Railings are there to jump above - take a look at the video. After preparing for the selection of licensing in 2008 he was gelded. He shows a good rideability with a lot of perfomance. First he was in a professional jumping stable where the schooling was wrong for the horse. But now he is in possession of a young rider and together they are starting their show career with success.


Ancestry: The sire is Graf Top I by Graf Grannus of the state stud of Celle. His sire Graf Grannus is a son of the great Grannus. Grannus has a lot of offspring in the international high- level jumping circle. In 2004 Graf Grannus was "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year" and there are also a lot of offspring in the international high level jumping circle. The dam of Graf Grannus, Goldmädel, was successful until 1,60m with Hauke Luther. Graf Top I has taken an excellent stallion performance test and was 4th of his age-group. The full-sister of his dam, Candy, is dam of Laptop by Loredo, the winner of his stallion performance test. The full-sister of his granddam, Gottilde, is dam of the international jumping-horse Alwins Ass by Absatz with Franke Sloothaak and of the sire of Stakkato, Spartan by Servus. Also For Keeps by For Pleasure, meanwhile international winner in jumping competitions with Lars Nieberg, is a member of this mareline. The first offspring of Graf Top I are now successful in the international youngster-tour and the riders are expecting much.

Detailed description of the pedigree and own performance of the dam Madonna III by Parco xx: ►►►►here

Own performance: Gianni jumps with an outstanding potential and care. He was presented to the pre-selection of Hanoverian main licensing 2008 but not selected. His presentation was characterised by his lacking experience and a lot of tension. He couldn't show his jumping quality. But we believe his will continue his way in the sport. Meanwhile he shows he potential under the rider and is successful with his young rider at beginner shows.

Successes: Dressage level E


Mareline: 749

Pedigree:  The pedigree has the following in-breeding

3x Gotthard, Ramzes x and Cottage Son xx

2x Cor de la Bryère and Calypso II

This pedigree is a great rarity because in Hanover there are only a little thoroughbred stallions for jumping. Graf Top-Parco xx-Coriolan- Rebel Z I-Marlon xx, and the mareline 749 with al lot of potential! For the moment the pedigree is very up-to-date within the Hanoverians take the initiative with the G-blood!
