Rembrandt won the Pavo Cup in Ermelo 3 times for 4,5 and 6 year old ponies, showing that he is a very versatile sire with a super jump as well. His full sister, Pretty in Black, is a successful FEI Eventing pony who was 8th at the 2015 Pony Euros. His damsire, Viktoria’s Chirac, sired the multiple Gold medal winning Eventing Pony, Cyrano.

 

Dam: 

Chiara is an Oldenburg who bred several superb foals for Christian Heinrich prior to being imported to the UK. She graded 3* with AES and her first offspring in the UK are proving to be very successful in dressage and Sports Horse classes.

Her dam is by Sandro Hit - worldwide best dressage stallion during his lifetime.

 

Damsire:

Performance

January 2019

By kind permission of Celia Cadwallader

Like his sire, Rembrandt DDH, Hammerwood Ritz is an elegant, eye catching pony stallion with three outstanding gaits, wonderful temperament, presence and character.

 

Ritz was licensed by the SPSS in 2018 when the judges scored his walk and canter particularly well with the result that Ritz was declared the Southern Reserve Champion Stallion.

 

Ritz was backed at the end of 2018 and is being produced for Young Pony Dressage Classes in 2019. After just a few weeks under saddle his naturally uphill canter was already wonderfully balanced and his rider thinks he is amazing and is very excited about his future. Having competed internationally in FEI pony dressage classes herself, she really rates him and believes that, with his quality paces and outstanding temperament, he has great potential as a top-class international dressage pony.

  

Offspring/Breeding Advice

As a newly licensed 4 year old stallion, Ritz will be available at stud for the first time in 2019.

 

Ritz has impeccable dressage breeding, athletic movement and an exceptional temperament which he is sure to pass onto his offspring.

 

He is perfect for mare owners wanting to breed smaller competitive dressage horses or dressage ponies with temperaments suitable for children.
