Romanoff's Sire in New Zealand
The 146.5cm high Davidoff is the offspring of the highest degree of royalty in German and English riding pony bloodlines on both sides of the pedigree. There are only a few German riding ponies that have topped the international championships over and over again, and exactly these ponies are in Davidoff’s pedigree, so performance in anchored in his breeding. Not a fluke, not a coincidence, but a reliable and consistent breeding programme is the secret of long lasting success.
Davidoff himself already has sired a considerable amount of successful showing, dressage, eventing and showjumping progeny here in New Zealand and Australia. One of his offspring is the first pony ever in NZ to compete at Prix St. George Dressage level against hacks. Davidoff’s showjumping progeny are regularly competing at the Horse of the Year shows. Many are also successful in showing classes, taking Supreme Championships. Davidoff has proven to be an excellent choice over riding ponies, Connemara, Welsh, Arabians, and even Warmblood hacks. D
