for a thoroughbred even though the
good elasticity and would likely have
made a very good dressage horse like
her full brother Tango. However,
because we value this dam-line so
highly, she went directly into our
mare herd.

Turandot's father Tambourin was on
the Canadian Grand Prix Dressage
team and was the alternate horse for
the Atlantic Olympics. With his rider
and trainer Louise Miechowsky,
Tambourin won a team bronze at the
Pan Am Games in Argentina, a first
place in the USET/Miller’s North
American Freestyle Challenge at
Gladstone in 1994 and a Gold Medal
Winner for the Canadian Team.

Turandot's dam Elite Mare Balaria
was a 3/4 sister to both the Grand Prix
mare and Hanoverian Horse of the
Year in FEI Freestyle Bacall and the
the Elite Stallion Bruderherz. Balaria
is a wonderful broodmare and riding
horse. She was a successful
competitor in dressage and eventing
and produced a number of top foals.

Her sire Bolero (Black Sky xx - Bleep
xx) is a foundation stallion in the
Hanoverian Verband, starting the now
well known B - Line. Bolero's dam was
Baronesse, a Hanoverian mare out of
the mare Atlastaube (by Athos and
out of Fliegerheil) who produced the
popular sires Grenadier, Hitchcock
and Winner. Three of Bolero's
descendants medaled at the 2004
Olympics in Athens--Beauvalais ridden
by Spain's Beatriz Ferrer-Salat,
Bonaparte ridden by Germany's Heike
Kemmer, and Brentina ridden by
American Debbie McDonald. Barclay
II, ridden by Sven Rothenberger of the
Netherlands showed in the same

Cavalier by the Thoroughbred
Cardinal xx and out of a Ferdinand
mare was used himself as a jumper.
However his progeny were very good
dressage horses and include the
Grand Prix horses - the wonderful
Blue Hors Cavan, ridden for Denmark
by Lars Petersen,  Ingeborg Fisher’s
Charmant and Klaus-Martin Rath’s
Cadiz. Cavalier is also the sire of
Cordoba (out of a Bolero mare).
