Pedigree profile of Rivendell Saffron

D.O.B xx/xx/xxxx  -  Rivendell Sirandipity x Goldmark xx x Elliodor xx

Saffron is a son of the amazing stallion Rivendell Sirandipity, who sadly died in 2015.

Sirandipity’s pedigree is saturated with the best show-jumping blood ever.  He is by the full brother of the legendary Shutterfly, ridden by Mereditch Michaels-Beerbaum, out of a top international show-jumping mare by Calvaro Z x Ramiro Z.  Sir Shutterfly features an exceptional pedigree: Sire Silvio I, regarded as one of the most prominent Sandro offspring in the breeding world and on the dams side, the required thoroughbred connection from the thoroughbred Forrest xx. His dam, Famm, Hanoverian Mare of the Year 2007, is a consistent producer of top horses including Shutterfly, the approved stallion Salut Bonheur and the international show jumpers Spilo D, Remedi D and Let's Fly. Also interesting is the connection to Gardestern-Wendekreis. 

At his 30 day stallion performance test he received the maximum score of 10.0 for his scope, technique were awarded with 9.75 and 9.5 respectively he also received 9.0 for temperament and character at his 30 day test. This stallion combines a premium pedigree with cat-like suppleness over jumps. Sir Shutterfly's outstanding genes are impossible to overlook. He demonstrates perfect technique, fast reflexes and outstanding intelligence. Sir Shutterfly has successfully competed in show jumping classes up to 1.30 m level.   

Calvaro’s sire Caletto I, is famous for producing showjumpers. His mother Deka by Consul made breeding history as mother of five approved sons. Caletto I was one of the most successful horses in showjumping. Calvaro’s dam Rixa, is a daughter of one of the most famous stallions, Capitol I. He produced Grand Prix jumpers and approved stallions like, Carthago Z., Cento, Cassini I, Capriol, Indoctro, Cumano etc. In Calvaro’s dam lineage there is the influential Farnese son Fantus to a Hanoverian female line that carries the blood of Sesam II and Goldfisch II, one of the most influential bloodlines in Hannover.

The great damsire of Sirandipity, is the well-known stallion Ramiro Z, who in a lifespan of thirty years as a sporthorse and breeding sire earned the titles 'Stallion of the Century' and "King of Sires." His progeny can be described with one word: sublime. One of his daughters, the super-mare Ratina Z, is the dream of the show jumping world, winning double Olympic gold medals (1992 and 1996) at the Barcelona Olympics, and the World Cup of 1993. Ramiro still ranks number 16 on the 2003 World Breeding Federation jumping stallion rankings. He is arguably the most influential jumping stallion ever...

Saffron ‘s dam is a thoroughbred mare ‘Image d’Or’, who is by the stallion Goldmark out of a mare by Elliodor.  Both these thoroughbred sires are known and respected for rideability and scope, technique and ability for showjumping.

Saffron has been backed and is a tall, elegant, athletic and very charming horse, who will be a great all rounder or pure show jumper.
