10 for the grandiose perspective, 9.8 for the energetic uphill canter, 9.6 for the highly elastic trot, 9.5 for the outstanding rideability, 9.4 for the ground-covering walk with perfect rhythm. With an overall score of 9.66 and ridden by Eva Möller, Danciero was only narrowly beaten by his stable neighbour Hesselhøj Downtown in the battle for gold at the World Championships for five-year-old dressage horses. The now three-time Hanoverian Champion and Vice German Champion even won the qualification for the final with the same score. Danciero has confirmed many times over the high assessment he received as the winning stallion at the 2018 Westphalian licensing in Münster-Handorf.
Danciero passes on his dream horse attributes to his offspring in a striking manner. His foals impress with ground-defying movement and therefore have been highly sought after by talent spotters. He has produced numerous auction top prices.
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. He was 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 now victorious in Grand Prix competitions. Amongst his other offspring are the dressage German and World Champion Lordswood Dancing Diamond, who qualified for the Burg Cup, Delacroix/Vincent van Gasselt/NED, who came second in the Aachen Nations Cup, and the European Championship participant Dacor S/Mikaela Soratie/FIN. His daughters, including the Hanoverian Champion Mare St.Pr.St Dakota, also cause great excitement.
His dam Floris was highly-placed at competitions for young horses.
His dam’s sire Floriscount was champion of the dressage index of his stallion performance test with scores up to 10, qualified several times for the German Championships and, in 2014, was placed second in the Burg Cup final in Frankfurt with Oliver Oelrich. Since then, the VTV dressage stallion has been placed in Grand Prix classes, ridden by his breeder’s daughter, Patricia von Merveldt. His 20 licensed sons include Fineline, who received the Westphalian premium, First Deal, who received the Oldenburg premium, and the Reserve Champion Cathmore Florian. The mare Fleur became Reserve Champion Mare of the Herwart von der Decken Show in Verden in 2013, was Hanoverian Vice Champion and then came fourth at the German Championships. In 2014, the mare Fräulein Hansemann won the Hanoverian Friedrich-Jahncke Show. At the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show in Rastede, Floriscount’s daughter Wega Contessa went to the “Brillantring”. The sporting offspring of Floriscount have already won many dressage competitions at high level up to Grand Prix.
In third place in the pedigree is the Celle State Stud stallion Rascalino. The Rotspon son was placed three times at the German Championships. At the World Championships for six-year-old dressage horses, he also finished fourth. In 2012, he came sixth at the German Championships in Hünxe. Amongst others, Rascalino produced Riverdance/Emma Kanervas/FIN, Grand Prix winner, Rien ne va plus, who was successful with the young rider Anna-Louisa Fuchs, and Racciano, silver medallist at the European Championships in four-in-hand with Mareike Harms.
The licensed stallions Hausherr and Fürst Aurich as well as numerous sport horses come from the Hanoverian line of Freya.
