Rivendell Crimson Tide

Pedigree profile of Rivendell Crimson Tide (Sold)

D.O.B 01/2014 - Consuelo (KWPN) x Locarno Donatello x Galapagos (Imp)

Crimson Tide, known as CT, was the last foal the stud had born in Namibia, its place of origin.  Crimson Tide is the grandson from one of the two foundation mares of the stud Rivendell Cascaya.

CT is by the well-known stallion Consuelo, who was imported by the Otjozonjati Stud in Namibia.  This stallion has been used extensively and has produced several great showjumpers competing at open level in South Africa.

Consuelo’s sire, Corofino I, was rewarded buy the judges with a 10 at his licensing test for his spectacular jumping abilities. As a four year old he qualified for the Bundeschampionat and achieved 9.6 in other show jumping tests. He was internationally successful under Italian rider Valerio Sozzi.

Grandsire, Corrado I, was the winner of his licensing and started a sky rocketing career as stud stallion as well as being an international competitor under Franke Sloothaak, winning in Aachen and Frankfurt, and the German masters in 1994.

Dam-sire, Landgraf I, was the first warmblood sire who’s progeny turned him into a 6,5 million DM millionaire making him one of the most successful sires.

Also in Consuelo’s pedigree we find Capitol, Farnese, Lord and Ramiro who all produced world class horses. Romantiker is the grandson of Ramzes, the outstanding sire that produced sport horses in all warmblood breeds. The Ramzes-line was identified as niche to the Achill – line, of which Farnese is the most outstanding representative, is the only Holsteiner line that can be followed right up to the early beginnings of the Holstein horse as a breed. Jumping ability and a correct foundation are the trademarks of the Achill-line.

Consuelo’s dam, Anna-Tevka, was a Grade A showjumper under Dirk Hafemeister. She is also the dam of Grannex, the very successful British showjumper and sire.

On CT’s damside we have the stallion Drosselklang I, full brother to the great sire Drosselklang II. 

At the 2001 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden, Germany, the Celle owned Drosselklang II was laureled as the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2001.

His breeder Margarethe Hagenah from Himmelporten, Germany, received a bronze statue and a check of DM 20,000. Drosselklang II is the tenth Stallion of the Year, an annual award sponsored by Uelzener Insurances.

Drosselklang II was born in 1984 at Hagenah's breeding stable. His dam, Forstlady, already produced a list of top competing horses of which full brother Diavolo was successful under Peter Schmitz in show jumping. Manager of the Celle State Stud, Dr Burchard Bade, already acquired Drosselklang I in 1985 where he served for five years as breeding stallion. Drosselklang II, however, grew up in the stable of Heinrich v. Allwörden in Krautsand, Germany. At the Verden Stallion Market in 1986, Drosselklang II had to compete against the legendary Weltmeyer I and put down the best show jumping scores. The bay stallion moved to the breeding station in Berglage where he is still up for stud today.

Drosselklang II's breeding career almost came to an end five years ago when the stallion injured himself while jumping in freedom. The stallion is nowadays one of the last licensed stallions with Don Carlos blood in his pedigree. Drosselklang II is a top producer in the program for Hanoverian Show Jumper Breeding. Many of his descendants are highly priced at the Verden auctions of which Donnerlitchen is one of the most famous. Owned by Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Donnerlitchen was Reserve champion at the 2000 Bundeschampionate. Don Oscar was Dobrock Champion, Dorain became reserve champion at the 1998 World Championships for Young Show Jumping Horses under Karl Heinz Markus. Dorincord participated at the Olympic Games under Canadian Ian Miller. Other known names descending from the Drosselklang II line are Dobel's Frechdachs (Otto Becker), Skyboy and Delany (Rodrigo Pessoa) and Bella Donna (Gilbert Bockmann).

On CT’s great dam side we get the mighty Grande, who needs no introduction as a legendary sire amongst dressage and showjumping sires alike.

CT was sold to Martin Mynette as a youngster and we look forward to seeing him produced and competing.
