Joldis Charmant was Reserve Champion of his grading, completed his 30 day performance test in 2007 and competed in Germany (under the name Charmant 41), winning at L Level.  His sire, FS Champion De Luxe was Bundeschampion as a 3 and 4 year old, performance test Champion and is a renowned sire.



Hilkens May Angel has 3 over progeny competing in Germany with the most succesful being Hilkens Marisa (by Danny Gold) who has won competing at dressage wwith wins at L1* and A2* levels and top 6 places at A and A1* levels. 


May Angel's dam, Mahrdorf Mady competed in dressage and jumping and is by Dino B  who, like May Angel's sire, is from the famous "D" line of ponies crossed with Valentino as his damsire. Through her dam, Miranda, Mady descends from Magister who was the damsire of Daylight MW, who was vice-Bundeschampion aged 4 then came to the UK as a competition pony and was awarded SPSS Elite graded status due to her international pony dressage record.



Arts-Dancer-Boy is one of 4 four very successful full siblings by the hugely influential German bred stallion Dancer (who was known in the UK as Broomford Dancer) out of Golden Charm (Valentino x Eckley) who were all successful. The other foals were:


  Golden Dancer (born 1987) - the 4 year old Bundeschampion in 1991, 1996 European Pony Dressage Champion as well as Team Gold Medallist in 1996 and 1999 and Team Silver in 2000. Golden Dancer also sired a dynasty of successful dressage ponies including more than 17 approved stallions and many successful competition ponies, including: Going East (Euro Team Gold 2008 and sire of 2x Team Bronze Medallist for GB, Gigolo), White Gold B (Euro Team Silver 2010) as well as the Bundeschampions Ganesh (3 yo, 1997), Golden Eckley (4yo, 1998) and Golden Moonlight (5 yo, 1997) and broodmare Gwenduline B (dam of European Team medal winning pony Deinhard B (by Dornik B))
  Golden Dream (born 1989) - a top broodmare. Her foals include Power & Paint (born 1993, European Pony Dressage Team Silver Medallist in 2002, 2003 & 2004, Individual Silver medallist in 2004, all for Holland with Marrigje van Baarlen), HB Daylight (born 2001, 2004 & 2006 Bundeschampion) and HB Golden Girl (born 2002, 3 year old Bundeschampionesse and multiple European Pony Dressage Championships medallist winning: Team Silver and Individual Silver in 2008; Team Silver, Individual Gold and Kur Gold in 2009, Team Gold, Individual Silver and Kur Gold Medal in 2010, all with Antionette te Riele (NED).
  Dancer Gold B (born 1990) - also a graded stallion, was 1993 3 year old Bundeschampion and has stood in Germany and Sweden. Dancer Gold B sired Dusty B, who qualified for the Bundeschampionsips in 2000.


Arts-Dancer-Boy himself was born in 1988 and competed to L-level dressage and, as well as siring graded stallions (including 2000 & 2001 Bundeschampion Arts-Deilahro), was also the sire of Dulcia, 2000 and 2001 Bundeschampion mare and European Dressage Pony Individual Bronze medallist in 2003, Individual Silver medallist in 2007 and Team Gold Medallist in 2003 & 2004 & 2007.


Arts-Dancer-Boy's sire, Dancer, was a fully graded and performance tested German Riding Pony stallion who was registered with the Rheinisches Pferdestammbuch (Rheinland Studbook).  Dancer was one of the first ponies to represent multiple nations at Pony FEI Level.  Dancer's sire was Dandy who is considered to be the foundation sire of the prolific German Riding Pony ďDĒ line.  At the 2010 Pony European Dressage Championships, 15 of the 28 German Riding Ponies competing had at least one occurrence of the sire Dandy in their pedigree. Dandyís sire was the British Riding Pony Catherston Red Gold. Red Gold was bred by Catherston Studís founders, Col & Mrs Bullen, in 1960 and was sold to Germany as a yearling. Although himself a chestnut, Red Gold was double bred to the famous palomino Bubbly (Potato x Cwm Cream of Eppynt), who was National Palomino Champion ten times in England in the late 1950s and early 60s. Dancer's dam, Valerina was a daughter of the Welsh Sec B Downland Santolina who is by the famous Downland Chevalier who was a significant influence on Welsh Section B breeding.  Valerina's sire, "Valentino" was a British-bred pony who was originally registered as the British Riding Pony, Oakley Bubbling Bobbety before being exported to Germany where he was renamed and became one of the foundation sires of the German Riding Pony breed.  Valentino's sire was Bwlch Valentino whose period of success as a sire lasted longer than any other British Riding Pony stallion.

Hilkens Color Me Golden was graded in Germany and was awarded Premium status with the Hannoverian Pony Verband. He competed in a few Riding Pony classes as a 3 year old in 2010, qualifying for the Hannover region Championat for Reitponies where he finished 7th.


Since coming to the UK, Color Me Golden has only competed a little, but as a 6 year old, in a few British Showjumping shows, he achieved double clears, a win and a third at British Novice (0.90m) level.  More recently he and his current owner have been competing at British Dressage  and they qualified for the 2021 Summer Area Festivals at Prelim and Novice levels.



Offspring/Breeding Advice

2022 will be Hilkens Color Me Golden's first year at stud in the UK. 


As he is a palomino there is a 50/50 chance of his passing on his dilute gene and siring a palomino, buckskin or smokey black foal (depending on the colour of the mare).
