Highest Scoring Mare on 2020 AHS Inspection Tour

A premier US-bred Hanoverian mare for the modern sport, Fabienne QC is sired by the exciting breeding stallion and Grand Prix horse Franziskus and out of Dressage at Devon Young Horse Champion Royal Celeste FH by Royal Classic. Correct in her conformation with a harmonious topline, a well-constructed hindleg, and a compelling type, Fabienne typifies the key goals of our breeding philosophy. At her large foal inspection at Hilltop Farm, she was described by Dr. Werner Schade (Breeding and Managing Director of the Hannoveraner Verband) as Elite Auction quality and designated Top Filly of the day. Three years later she would repeat this feat, being named Top Mare at the large MAHB AHS Inspection. With a final score of 8, with straight 8s for conformation, typiness and feminity, walk, trot, correctness of gaits, and overall impression, she also became the highest scoring Hanoverian mare in the country for the year 2020 and the recipient of the Bari von Buedingen Memorial Trophy.

Fabienne completed her Hanoverian Mare Performance Test in 2023 with top scores for gaits under the rider: 9 for trot, 8.5 for walk, and 8 for canter. With a final score of 7.67, she now becomes a Hanoverian Premium Mare Candidate! She also placed 3rd in a competitive 4-Year-Old and Older Mares Under class at Dressage at Devon this Fall, only her second time out. With her top riding horse qualities of high rideability and very good gaits, we look forward to her becoming a part of our breeding program in 2024.
