Our little Sophie was one of our first born in 2009 and is absolutely gorgeous. Her coloring is magnificent and she is so feminine. Her first opportunities outside in the fields showed us some incredible movement, which is no surprise coming from this wonderful combination.

Sophie's sire, Sempatico is an incredible stallion with impeccable breeding and an outstanding temperament. As a foal, Sempatico was the "Bundeschampionat" National Champion ZfDP. According to Frank Bangert, the head director of Prussendorf State Stud, "Sempatico is the best colored horse he has ever seen. Sempatico's sire, Semper, son of Sandro, the Holsteiner who also sired Sandro Hit, Sandro Song and over 36 approved sons, 308 approved mares, and 27 states premium mares. Semper's dam, Imago, is an Elite Preferent rated KWPN mare, by Samber, the world's most influential and successful pinto warmblood in history. Sempatico's dam line is equally impressive as his dam is a Verband Premium mare by the Dutch stallion Ico. Sempatico's foal crops have been outstanding with multiple site champions and a high percentage of premium offspring.

Sophie's dam,Ostara, is a gorgeous black Holsteiner mare and a true lady undersaddle. Ostara has been competitive in the dressage ring and has shown outstanding talent over fences. She is by Caesar (HOL) out of Delilah (HOL) by Calme (HOL), with 3rd and 4th generation lineage to Caletto II (HOL), Cor de la Bryere (SF), and Calypso I (HOL). A premium filly with the AHHA, Ostara is MMB approved with the ISR/Oldenburg, NA with an outstanding 104 points.

Sophie was branded Oldenburg in September 2009 with an outstanding 8.3 on movement. She is currently in dressage training and is showing exceptional athletic abilities. Her trainability is extremely high and she has such a willingness to please. As Sophie's training progresses, she is showing lovely fluidity in her gaits with exceptional balance and self carriage so early in her training. An exciting prospect, we are looking forward to seeing what she does in not only the show ring, but as a future broodmare for Milestone.
