Donnacina was bred by Evelien de Korver-Dammers in the Netherlands and was being groomed for a competitive dressage career by Judy Kingsford when a farrier accident changed her life.
We weren’t looking to add to our broodmare herd when we saw Donnacina in 2010 (at Barbara Schmidt, DVM at Bridlewood Farm in Kentucky). It took some convincing that we needed to go to Kentucky on our way home to Texas from Lamplight in Illinois. What a lucky detour this was for us. This beautiful 17.1hh chestnut mare, born in 2000, with a who's who pedigree, stole our hearts with her super model conformation and wonderful movement.
Donnacina is a full sister to the Oldenburg Stallion Don Grecho.
Donnacina has had a filly by Dacaprio (DeLovely), colts by San Amour (Stefano WS), Royal Prince (Razzmatazz WS), Romancero H (Romancino WS) and finally another filly in 2016 filly by Supremat OLD (Saskiah WS) that we are retaining for our breeding program. In 2017, she had a stunning colt by Supremat OLD (Schwarzkopf WS), full brother to Saskiah WS and 2018 colt by Harvard (Honor Guard WS). Donnacina had a lovely filly by Rockefeller (Rotkaeppchen WS) in 2021 and will be officially retired after weaning to live her life out on green pastures, being a companion to the others. We've been honored to have this mare as part of our foundation breeding herd.
Donnerhall 1981-2002, an Oldenburg liver chestnut stallion standing 16.3hh had flowing, supple gaits, is the world renowned, stallion of the century.

His sports career was full of pinnacles:1986 honored as DLG champion stallion, at the WEG at The Hague in 1994 with his lifelong rider Karin Rehbein he won team gold- and in free style the bronze medal. This result was repeated at the 1997 at the European Championships at Verden with Gold in the team and bronze in the individual.
