Domsberg was BWBS champion stallion and rated in the top sires of British dressage horses, he competed in BSJA classes and is from a prolific line of German (Hanovarian) dressage horses. He can trace his D line to a TB stallion, Devil’s Own. Domsberg’s sire, Damnatz was used in Germany as a son of Darling, who was a good producer of dressage stallions, and Damnatz’s own progeny have won over €34,000 in dressage. Duft II was the most influential son of the famous Duellent who founded a big group of stallions, with very good conformation and movement. Damnatz’s dam, Gondel, is a good show jumping influence, tracing back to Goldfisch II via Gong. Domsberg’s dam, Attika, is descended from Abglanz who produces horses which are very versatile in sports ability.



Mishah PBA/PBW was a very sound tough pony, of sport pony type.



Blue Shah was successfully shown in hand as was the fashion at that time.



Donnerstag was graded at the 2001 SPSS grading, where he was awarded good marks and the judges stated his conformation and sport pony type as very good.


Donnerstag competed a limited number of times in BSJA competitions where he showed good ability and technique before retiring to stud.


He has an even, warm and winning temperament and behaves perfectly when ridden out, in company or alone, and at competitions.

Bay filly.  Dam:  Langstaffe Evening Prayer (TB, Young Man (FR) x News Item)


His eldest daughter, Langstaffe Evening Darling (right), was born in 2000 and attended the 2004 SPSS grading and gained good marks.


The judges singled her out for praise as she behaved much older than her years. With her sensible level-headed nature and attitude, she took her new experience in her stride.


They were also impressed with her rideability and jumping ability which they felt had good potential. They said she gave a pleasing general impression and showed willingness and rideability throughout the day.
