This beautiful, long-legged filly offers much promise for a dressage rider looking for a horse to develop for the competition ring, but she also has the pedigree and type that will appeal to a breeder of top dressage horses. Somersette’s movement is light, rhythmic, and has plenty of ground-cover. Her temperament is fantastic as well – she’s smart, sensible, and yet has a positive energy to her.
Somersette’s sire, Sternlicht, is a 3x US Dressage Finals Champion, now competing at Intermediate II and on the USEF Development List. Sternlicht’s offspring are already making their mark at inspections and dressage competitions. The long-lined, elegant type of Somersette comes very strongly from her sire. His pedigree combines the influential stallions Sandro Hit, Donnerhall, and Rubinstein – a dressage powerhouse pedigree!
Somersette’s dam has proven herself a successful broodmare whose offspring are all showing talent as future dressage horses. The full-brother to Somersette’s dam was the Champion FEI horse Boxster A and both the damsire (Bugatti) and grandsire (Weltbekannt) were FEI competitors as well.
Somersette is a modern, elegant type that will be best suited to a taller rider as she is likely to mature around 16.3 hands. She is a smart, eager to learn filly that should be a joy to develop in the coming years. She is registered with the American Hanoverian Society.
