Signator – 17.0 HH, Mahogany Bay, no white.  A commanding presence, exceptional gaits and rideability, with the talent for Dressage, Eventing, or the Hunter Ring.


Signator’s, sire, Stedinger (Sandro Hit/Landadel) was one of the best of his age class with respect to his jumping performance. His sire, Sandro Hit is regarded as the upholder of the Sacramento Song xx/Butes bloodline.

Stedinger has become one of the most sought after contemporary sires. Five sons from his first crop were licensed at various approvals in Hanover, Münster-Handorf and Redefin as well as the Champion Stallion in Vechta, Status Quo. In 2006, six of his off-spring qualified for the German Foal Championship where his daughter, Sinfonie, became Champion Filly in 2004.

She is a full sister of the approved Lamar H, a successful dressage horse. Bold Fantasy also produced the licensed stallion Donninger by Donnerschwee. 


On the dressage side, this bloodline has brought the approved full-brothers Andrew (successes up to Grand Prix) and Armagnac, as well as the multiple advanced level winner and approval champion, Waldsee; Tansanid, winner of the silver medal at the 1984 Olympic Games under Christine Stückelberger. The grandam gave birth to many successful showjumpers, dressage horses and cross-country eventing horses.

This is a pedigree of nothing but WINNERS!


Signator was started slowly as a 3 1/2 year old due to his expected size.  He has been hacked in the open and over 1000+ acres of woodlands and trails, alone and in company, stands on cross-ties, for the farrier, the vacuum and loads in the trailer. He has been jumped sparingly over gymnastic lines and has never balked or stopped, rushed or bolted.  He maintains an impeccable canter rhythm and is always light and soft in the bridle.
