Boss Junior is well established in Germany completing his 30 day ridden test as a young stallion with a score of 8.36, scoring 9s for his walk, canter and rideability. He then gained Elite status in 2010 off the back of his offspring, of which 80% gain the premium title and compete in dressage, show jumping, carriage driving and showing. 


His breeding is outstanding, deriving from the most amazing dam line with his dam, Moonlight, having produced many licensed stallion sons and State Premium daughters as well as Boss Junior's full brother, Boss Bunter, who competed in FEI Pony Dressage for both Holland and Denmark


Boss Junior has sired 2 German licensed stallions and 2 State Premium mares as well as numerous offspring competing in dressage, showjumping and driving including Calenberg’s Tiberia, Calenber’s Bandit, Viktoria, Rosebud, Benny, Bacardi, Prymont’s Bombastique, Brighton and Tamina.


He was awarded the prestigious SPSS ELITE status in September 2015, also in recognition of the success of his progeny, including Best Before Midnight who represented Germany at FEI International Pony Dressage in 2008 & 2009.



Sermacorn, has competed internationally to 2* eventing as well as show jumping, dressage and carriage driving.


Her damline includes Trakehner blood through Bismarck and the Holstein/KWPN licensed Joost, who is known as a successful progenitor of showjumpers.



Noncorde by Concorde. The Concorde sire line needs no introduction coming from very strong jumping lines. Concorde is an extremely successful stallion, being the youngest stallion in history to receive preferent due to his endless offspring competing nationally and internationally. Concorde show jumped internationally and was elected KWPN Horse of the Year in 2004 and was the highest ranked KWPN stallion in the top ten of the WBFSH.



Bentley, despite his young age, is proving quite the hit at the few shows he has attended -  winning the sports horse foal at the Royal Highland Show 2018 and being 4th in a strong yearling class at the Yorkshire Sports Horse show in 2019. In 2020, he achieved a Gold Premium with the British Breeding Virtual Futurity with several comments about his active, powerful and energetic his paces are as well as how harmonious his frame and topline are. He was also awarded an SPSS Gold Premium and named 2020 SPSS Top Two Year Old.


Only backed in Jan 2022 and had limited competitive outings but contested Royal Highland show 4yo potential sport horse class and in late 2022 qualified for the Dalston Green Arena Eventing Championships. Plan for 2023 is to dressage and event alongside stud duties.
