Danciano’s first offspring have already reached the international scene, among them Dancielle de Malleret, already highly successful in Small Tour and placed fourth in the French Championships (7y.o.) in 2021, and DSP Danny Cool, who came twelfth in the World Championships for young dressage horses and was Vice German Champion and three-time Southern German Champion with Helen Langehanenberg. Daily Show/Emily Miles/USA became USEF Developing Horse Champion at Prix St. Georges level in the USA, after finishing Champion of the five-year-olds and Vice Champion of the four-year-olds. Diaz/Steffen Frahm/GER, Die Baroness/Kathrin Sudhölter/GER, Debby/Greta Busacker/GER and Dark Knight/Nicole Levy/USA are also successful at high level. Daktari K was bronze medallist at the German Championships (3y.o.). Harpège Grez-Neuville won the three-year-old Championships in France. At the five-year-old Spanish Championships, Donana TR was unbeatable. De Vinci trotted up to the top of the ranking at the three-year-old Championships in Belgium. Kankaline de Ticop won the French Foal Championships in 2020. Danciano has also produced numerous premium foals and auction top prices, as well as several licensed stallions, including the Southern German and Baden-Württemberg Riding Horse Champion Define Dynamic.
Danciano has long enjoyed the reputation of preserver and innovator of the Donnerhall heritage, which is so important for dressage horse breeding worldwide. He demonstrates grand attributes in presentation and representation with his rider.
Danciano started his career as Hanoverian premium stallion, the most expensive stallion of the stallion market and overall winner of his stallion performance test (8.48). With 8.91, he received this second highest dressage-focused mark and his trot was awarded the perfect score, 10. In 2014, at the age of four, he won the silver medal at the Hanoverian Championships. In 2015, he won further young horse classes and was placed at the German Championships. In 2016, he won intermediate (M) level tests for young dressage horses. In the meantime, under French patronage, Danciano extended his record of successes with international victories up to Inter II with Pauline Guillem/FRA.
His sire Dancier, Hanoverian champion stallion in 2004 and winner of the overall and dressage index of his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 2005, was awarded the Freiherr von Stenglin Prize and Burchard Müller Prize as best stallion of his age class in 2006. Dancier then came second at the Hanoverian Riding Horse Championships and third at the German Championships (4y.o.) after winning the qualifier for the final. In 2008, he was also placed at the championships (6y.o.) in Warendorf. Since then, he has been victorious up to Prix St. Georges in dressage. In 2014, Dancier was awarded the prestigious “Grande-Preis”. The crowd of over 40 licensed sons is led by the Burg Cup and Louisdor Prize finalist Harmony's Don Nobless/Susan Pape/GBR who was sold for a high price at the P.S.I. Auction and is victorious in Grand Prix competitions. Amongst his other offspring are Lordswood Dancing Diamond/Dorothee Schneider, German and World Champion, who qualified for the Burg Cup and is victorious in Grand Prix, the European Championship participant Dacor S/Mikaela Soratie/FIN as well as Dünensee/Christoph Koschel and Dark Dancer/Elisa Prigge. His daughters, including the Hanoverian Champion Mare St.Pr.St. Dakota, also cause great excitement.
His dam Rodney’s Girl is the full sister of the licensed stallion Rood Vander who was successful up to Inter I with Martina Hannöver-Sternberg.
His dam’s sire Rotspon was premium stallion, champion of his stallion performance test and “Hanoverian Stallion of the Year” in 2017. He has produced over 120 horses that are successful at advanced level, including Carola Koppelmann's Grand Prix winner Rome, and have won almost one million euros in dressage arenas. Meanwhile, Rotspon is also making a name for himself as a dam's sire, for example with the double team Olympic Champion, team and double individual gold medallist at the European Championships and German Champion Showtime FRH ridden by Dorothee Schneider.
In the third generation is the German Champion and stallion performance test winner Wolkenstein II, one of the most influential sons of the line founder Weltmeyer.
From the Hanoverian mare family of Dollarkunst descend the stallions De Kuyper, De Vito, Depardieu, Florion and Razzmataz as well as the licensing winner Raferty. Amongst the sport horses, Danönchen OLD/Liselott-Marie Linsenhoff (third in the Burg Cup and successful in the Junior Riders German Championships), Chagall/Madeleine Winter-Schulze and the show jumper Sir Blacky/Claus-Heinrich Bohlmann stand out.
