In January 2006 we were looking for a half-bred mare and have found Madonna III. In Holstein she is registered as a District Premium Mare and in Hanover Main Stud Book Mare. Her breeder is Elisabeth Bern- hard in Kollmar. Before breeding Madonna III was the hunting horse of a medicine with much engagement and the ancestors of the race horses in her pedigree were appearing. She was bred to the state stud stal- lion of Celle Graf Top I. Her first foal Gianni Amato was born at our stable. End of 2011 after 4 foals we have sold Madonna III to a Hanoverian breeder. Now she is in possession of a rider in Berlin.


Ancestry: Her sire is the Irish thoroughbred Parco xx. The pedigree of Parco xx contains only little the blood of sprinter and American thoroughbred, the hard blood of long distance horses dominates. Parco xx (information here) was a stallion of the Holsteiner Verband and the offspring got an outstandig quality regarding jumping potential. F.e. the licensed stallion of the Holsteiner Verband, Paramount by Parco xx-Cantus-Roman. In 2006 the winner of the Elite Broodmare show of half-breed in Elmshorn was Tropica I by Parco xx and the 2nd was Tilly by Parco xx. Also in 2005 the daughter of Parco xx, Sentenz, was 2nd of the Elite Broodmare show of half-breed. In 2007 the Paramount daughter US-Beauty got a premium as the mare with the best gaits at the Elite Broodmare show in Elmshorn and in 2008 she got the "Blaues Band", a premium for the best mare which is awarded every few years. Successful sport-horses by Parco xx are: Horseware's Parko in international eventing with Peter Thomsen, Tuja 6 until 1,45m with Eoin Ryan and Playboy 229 until 1,50m with Michael Vogel and Sabrina Berger.


The sire of the dam, Coriolan, was winner of show jumping competitions until 1,50m and got considerable offspring for the highest level of dressage and show jumping. First sold to Hessians, he was going back to Holstein regarding his outstanding offspring. His sire Calypso II was not only a most popular stallion in Holstein, but also in Hanover. He has had a very excellent rideability although he was very massive but his offspring have this rideability too. He is in a lot of pedigrees of very successful horses.

The granddam of Madonna III, the State Premium Mare Zangersheide, is also dam of a lot of internationally successfull offspring and among other also dam of a 2nd placed mare of the Elite Broodmare Show in Holstein. Her sire Rebel Z I by Ramiro is full-brother of the out- standing sport-horse Ratina Z of Ludger Beerbaum. Rebel Z I was also successful in show jumping competitions until 1,60m and the movement was very good, many of his offspring also. The dam of both, Argentina Z, is full-sister of the outstanding stallion Ahorn Z. The dam of Argentina Z and Ahorn Z is Heureka by Ganeff, who was a.o. winner of the Grand Prix of Aachen. The great-granddam Genoveva by Marlon xx is also granddam of Locato, stallion of the Holsteiner Verband by Lord.
