By the World Renowned Royal Diamond (Rubinstein/ Inschallah)
out of the Imported Hanoverian mare, SPS Westerwelle by Walt Disney/ Lehnsherr. Royal Diamond to this day is one of Germany's most beloved sires, and continues to wow the crowds at shows w/ his Piaffe & Passage tours, which he so generously throws to his get. Renoir WF has inherited this dancing trait and is proving his sire's abilities.
Renoir's dam, SPS Westerwelle, was a grand champion in all of her dressage & hunter shows many times over! This mare was a stunning animal, tall, black w/ 4 stockings & a blaze, she won the hearts of everyone she met. She had all premium foals, and has an approved son in Germany.
Renoir was shown for a few years as a stallion, was Grand Championship many times over w/ top scores every time in-hand & Materiale. In fact, he is undefeated in the NW during his 2, 3, & 4 yr old years, & went to Devon as a 2 yr old scoring 78% for a 4th place ribbon--which I framed! He won USEF HOY Reserve Champion Dressage Stallion twice, w/ median scores of 84% & 82%, and was named Stallion of the Year for NWSHBA in '08. American Hanoverian Society also sent him many championship awards & trophies for his year end high scores. This horse is outstanding & loves his careers!!!
In 2011-2012 Renoir was schooling 4' Regular Hunter fences w/ some jumper jumps in there as he doesn't spook. Renoir was trained thru 4th level dressage, w/ some PSG movements, clean tempi changes, piros, etc. But now he kinda likes the Hunters a little more than the Dressage, & I always let the horses pick what they want to do, so maybe he could go do the H/J ring for a while!!! Amateur orYR safe, he's very quiet & super sweet, loves people, friendly & easy to handle. Takes a savvy experienced rider, but pretty straight-forward. 2013-Currently in training w/ Melissa Anderson and will do the h/j & dressage shows.
