May 2010 Bay Rheinland Pfalz-Saar gelding by Der Graf
Double Entendre


Are you looking for a superstar mover for dressage? This darkly handsome 2 year old gelding has big, swingy, off-the-ground and uphill gaits. There's no double-meaning to his pedigree either -- it reads like a who's who of the world's best performance bloodlines. His sire, Der Graf, is by the world famous Donnerhall, and out of a daughter of Pik Koenig. Der Graf's granddam Gina is a full sister to foundation Hanoverian stallion Grandus. Der Graf is an outstanding and prepotent sire, with offspring showing successfully in dressage, eventing and the Hunter/Jumper ring.

Double Entendre's dam, Solidarity, was a junior event horse, and is a daughter of the world famous jumper sire Galoubet. Her dam was an Intermediate level event horse, with a very successful record.

We've had very good luck with the Der Graf x Galoubet cross before -- Double Entendre's full brother Deo, owned by Gwen and Pam Philips of Flower Mound, TX, is growing up to be an outstanding dressage prospect, and another full sibling, Double Agent, looks like a top dressage prospect. Spy's 3/4 brother Darius, out of our very special old mare, Summit Peak, by Galoubet, is now owned by Grand Prix jumper rider Daniel Geitner, and we look for him to follow in his famous sister Sympa's hoofprints, into the grand prix ring as well. 3/4 sister Double Take is a very exciting prospect for the jumper ring for owner Melissa MacNeil of Vancouver, British Columbia. And here on the farm we have outstanding 3/4 sisters Double Talk, and Daydream Believer as well .

Double Entendre moves with impressive balance, impulsion, and swing. He will wow in the dressage ring, but also should jump the moon according to his pedigree -- his gaits are so big and free, we can see this gelding with a future in the highest levels of sport.

Double Entendre has grown up in our big, hilly South Dakota pastures, while also spending time in the barn learning to be a cooperative partner. He's agile, sound and healthy, raised in the way that is best for young sporthorses. Call or email for more information.
