Canterbury Court
Presidio has been a great performance and
show sire. Due to an unrecognized fetlock  injury
in his 100 Day Test, Presidio himself was unable
to enter competition. His offspring are  showing
what might have been.

Research in Germany has shown that free
jumping is the only portion of the stallion testing
which predicts the jumping ability of a stallion’s
offspring. Presidio’s free jumping is exemplary,
shown by his ability to clear five-foot oxers
easily. He received a 9 in jumping form and a 9
in jumping potential from the Hanoverian
Commission. Presidio also has shown talent for
dressage, with great ridability and a very correct
piaffe in hand and under saddle. Additionally
Presidio comes from one of the most revered
dam lines in German Warmblood breeding.

Presidio’s sire, Palladium, is by the well-known
Hanoverian sire Pik Solo whose offspring are
winners in competition and breed shows.
Palladium has continued this tradition by siring
Prophesy, a CDS Freestyle Champion at First
Level and Futurity Champion, Pallas Athena and
Palisade, Olsierlea Breed Show winners, and the
Elite Mare Palladia. Palladium's son Pfalstaff
(out of a Grenadier mare) was the Canadian
reserve horse for the 2010 World Equestrian
games. Palladium himself  placed in Grand Prix
jumping. He was also the Grand Champion at the
Mid-South States Combined Training and
Dressage Breed Show.

Presidio’s dam, Windsong, received an 8 at her
inspection. While never in competition herself,
she produced Neptune, a winning event and
dressage horse on the West Coast; Niersteiner,
Golden State Champion Three Year Old, winner
of numerous breed shows and now starting a
career in dressage; Pathfinder, showing
dressage in Texas; Ganador, a stallion prospect
in North Carolina; and Samarai, an Oldenburg
colt who was awarded First Premium and the
champion out of 24 foals at his inspection site.
Windsong is by the famed Spruce Meadows
stallion Wodka who was shown to Grand Prix
under the name “Young Wolfsburg”. He counts
among his progeny the Grand Prix jumpers
Concorde and Windfall as well as the top hunter
Bavaria. Wodka's full sister is the direct great
granddam of the Grand Prix jumper Robinson.
His dam Elmfruendin is the dam of four approved
stallions ( Wodka, Wind, Wolfsburg(BWP), and
Wigwam F) and the grandam of the Austrian
Grand Prix Champion Da Vinci and the stallion
Wandergesel, and the granddam of the stallions
Wnaderkonig and Wendekonig.
The Vechta Elite foals Desponent (46,000 EU)
and Feuerball (40,000 EU) also descend from
this damline.

Windsong’s mother, States Premium Mare Garina
by Graphit, is from one of the most distinguished
dam lines in Hanoverian breeding. She is the
grandmother of the German Nation’s Cup mare
Sprehe Stella (Meridith Michaels-Birnbaum).
Garina is also a full sister to the Rhinelander
State Stallion Grandus (sire of the reserve
Canadian Olympic jumper Ghino), the States
Premium Mare Gina (dam of the German Olympic
Jumper Prestige(Franke Slootkak) and the
approved sire Piccadilly), and the States
Premium Mare Grace (dam of the approved
stallion Marsflug). Graphit is well known to
Americans through his sons Grundstein, Graf
George, and Grannus, the producer of top class
jumpers Gland Slam, Top Gun, and Grannush,
and as the dam sire of the Grand Prix stallion
For Pleasure.

SPS Gotenmädel by Gotthard, besides being the
mother of outstanding offspring, is also the full
sister to Gaby, the mother of the famous Celle
Stallion Picard and the private stallion
Wendengott. Gaby also produced the States
Premium Mare Phillipa who was still in active
breeding at age 17 and who is owned by the
Pape family, breeders of Pik Bube, Davignon,
and Bergamon. SPS Phillipa has produced the
Celle Stallion Dobrock, the Flynge Stud Stallion
De la Gardie and two other approved stallions.

Fusion is by the great dam sire Frustra II. His
daughters appear on the mother’s side of the
stallions Pik Bube I and II, Graphit, Drosselklang
I and II, and the Hanoverian Horse of the Year
Gralsritter. Daughters of these horses also seem
to retain the ability to produce great
performance horses.  Besides the stallions
mentioned above, Fusion’s other famous
descendants include the jumper Garlic, the
Nurnberger Burgpokal (German National)
dressage Champion Blind Date, the Oldenburg
stallions Donatelli and Placido, the Hanoverian
stallion Daimler, the RSPI stallion Der Graf, the
ISR stallion Isaiah, and the Belgian stallion
Lanthanid. With so many descendants placed in
stud in so many different countries, Fusion is
honored as a top foundation mare for both the
Hanoverian and Oldenburg breeds.

Presidio’s foals out of both warmblood and
Thoroughbred mares  are very typey with
improved head and necks, deeply muscled
hindquarters and wonderful attitudes. They also
show very elastic movement and are
comfortable to ride. His first foal Prescription
was Champion Stallion at the 2004 Northwest
Sporthorse Breeder’s Classic. He  been
Champion or Reserve Champion Oldenburg at
every breed show he has been entered in - over
a dozen to date. He was also placed 2nd in the
Training Level and 5th at First Level in the USDF
2004 All Breeds Awards and was Pacific
Northwest Dressage Champion at First Level. In
2005 Prescription was the GOV Horse of the
Year at Second Level. His daughter Prada C was
the 2010 West Coast Future Event Horse Three
Year Old Mare Champion. Patronus C won his
first dressage show with a score of 74%, and
was both the show high point and regional high
point for the year. Pago Pago C has won hunter
championships in 4 out of 5 shows in 2013.
Passion C has three consecutive High Point of  
show awards with a 12 year old dressage rider.
