This mare truly is something royal, and she knows it. A winner of Mare Shows in Germany and the U.S. she is by Sir Donnerhall, winner of his Stallion Performance Test, a multiple Buncheschampionate winner in Germany, and Reserve Young Horse World Champion in Verden. "Royal" exhibits his gaits and captivating elegance, all the way to the tips of her curved ears - the "special ears" she so clearly inherited from her sire.

As a 2 year old, Royal won her division at the large Bruchhausen-Vilsen, Germany, mare show in a class of over 30 fillies. Described by Dr. Axle Brockmann (Director, Hanoverian State Stud in Celle) as typifying the "ideal modern mare type with outstanding gaits and presence," she exhibits an elegant, uphill self-carriage, and an equal extravagance in all 3 gaits.

She was designated a States Premium Mare Candidate after her Mare Performance Test in Hoya, Germany, in June 2008, and received one of the highest rideability scores from the test rider - 8.5! The American Hanoverian Society has awarded her Elite Mare status based on her Performance Test in Germany.

Her first Foal, Heirloom, a 2009 colt by Hampton (His Highness – SPS Red Chili by Rotspon), displays his mother’s presence, gaits, and incredible balance and self-carriage, and his successfully competing in the Hunter Ring, Reserve Champion of his division in his first show ever!

Her 2010 foal is Flip Side by Fuerst Romancier.  Flip Side is now owned by Eliza Cydnor Romm, and received at 76+% in her first show ever.  She is a full Sister to Royal's 2014 Filly by Fuerst Romancier.


In 2012, Royal had a Dark Bay/Liver Chestnut by Don Fredericoand in 2013 produced an outstanding colt, by Romanov, Ruffian.

In 2014, Royal produced a spectacular full sister to Flip Side – Flying Colors. We will be repeating breeding to Romanov in 2016, looking for as spectacular foal as her colt “Ruffian” (now named Ronin).
