Love this Mare!!!!

Absolutely fabulous 4 yo Oldenburg mare. 17.0 Hands. Sophia is a lovely mare with super bloodlines. Sandro Star (Sandro Hit out of a Diamanté x Pik Bube mare. Sophia has 3 lovely gaits that are easy to sit and ride. She tries very hard for the rider. In the video, this is the first time she has done cavaletti work. She is the perfect horse that could do Hunter, Dressage or even Eventing like her sire. Finish your way. Top temperament. Super ground manners. Very easy to handle, clip, bathe and trailer to places. This is one mare that is a must see when looking for your next star.

Sandro Star: Sandro’s Star drives the notion that a performance pedigree should reap a performance horse – his success in sport is a direct nod to a background of well-regarded Oldenburg and Holsteiner blood anchored by an equally influential Thoroughbred dam line. The sire, Sagnol (Sandro Hit – Landadel), blends together a mixture of top Dressage and Jumping breeding dynasties. Sandro Hit has sired numerous approved stallion sons, Bundeschampions, World Champions and Olympic Grand Prix Dressage horses, while Landadel is widely recognized as one of the most influential sons of the Holsteiner stallion Landgraf. In 1998, the Landadel daughter Lady Weingard was the 1998 World Champion in Grand Prix Show Jumping under Markus Beerbaum. Sagnol himself stems from the same successful Holsteiner dam line as the popular sires Acorado, Calvados, Lordanos, and Rouletto.

Provisionally licensed by the German Oldenburg Verband in 2011, Sandro’s Star garnered high praise and a perfect “10” for his canter from the judges. These initial qualities were proven further at his 70-Day Stallion Test in 2012, highlighted by scores of “10” for cross-country gallop and cross-country jumping, “9” for canter and stadium jumping ability, and “8.5” for temperament and willingness to work. Sandro’s Star received an impressive final index of 115.32, placing fourth overall. Following testing, Sandro’s Star was sent to Germany and qualified for the 2013 Bundeschampionate in Eventing – a first for a US bred horse. A strong final score of 8.1 further solidified the young stallion’s ability in a field of 70 horses.

Sandro’s Star returned to the US Eventing scene in 2017 with notable top finishes at the Intermediate/2* level including a win at the Fair Hill CIC, 4th at the American Eventing Championships in Tryon, and a 13th place finish at Fair Hill International CCI. 2018 saw a move up to the 4* level, with a 3rd place at Rebecca Farm and a top 20 finish at Plantation Field International. The year culminated with an exciting win in the $50,000 Devon Arena Eventing class. In 2019, Sandro’s Star was selected for the $50,000 Aiken Grand Prix Eventing Showcase and finished 3rd under British Olympic team rider William Fox-Pitt. He would return to Devon to finish as the runner up in his second year for Arena Eventing.

Based on his successes in sport, Sandro’s Star was named the United States Eventing Association Stallion of the Year in 2017 and 2018. Additionally, Sandro’s Star won the Stallions Four Years and Older class, was named Champion Stallion, High Score Born in the USA for Stallions, and Champion Stallion for the USDF/GAIG East Coast Finals at Dressage at Devon in 2017.
