Don Roncalli is super ridable and has a great temperament, pleasant in that he has enough sensitivity to be respectful.
His riding career started as an eventer and he was trained to participate in the Bundeschampionat. As a 6-year-old he won and placed at 1.10m jumper classes. After that his career focused solely on dressage where he was trained to Grand Prix. He was lightly bred during this time.
Of his inspected daughters, three were classified Premium Mare at the Hanoverian mare show. SPS Devita placed second at the Herwart von der Decken Show.
Don Roncalli's three full siblings were all high-scoring States Premium Mares. His breeding values are higher than most Donnerhall sons: Type/riding horse points 129, Foundation 115, Dressage 127. His noted sire Donnerhall, known for passing on his abilities to his offspring, had a stellar career winning over 65 FEI Grand Prix Dressage classes. He earned his third team gold finishing 4th individually at the 1998 Dressage World Championship. Donnerhall was also named Oldenburg Stallion of the Year in 1998 and had the highest dressage breeding value of all stallions at 271, producing over 77 approved sons, 450 broodmares (84 State Premium), and over 636 competition horses. Donnerhall's dam, Ninette, was sired by Markus, a half-Thoroughbred. Markus' sire, Manolete xx, is also found in the great eventing horse Volturno, winner of two Olympic silver medals and a silver medal at the 1978 World Championships in Lexington. Don Roncalli's dam Rafale xx is the full sister to the Hanoverian approved stallion Roncalli xx. Rafale xx produced three full siblings to Don Roncalli, all are States Premium Mares. Excellent in gait, he is listed as one of the most successful representatives of his breed in the FN breeding value rating. (Riding points 147) He passes on good size and good character. Roncalli's sister may just be the reason one can now breed D-line and produce quality as well as a leggy blood type out of your mare.
Rubignon combines four generations of Grand Prix and international performance from Rubinstein/Donnerhall/Pik Solo with fantastic character, temperament and type. Rubignon's dam, Una Donna, is from the Utoba stamm with Samun xx and Volkorn xx on the bottom. This stamm produced the licensed stallions Azzarro, Landtinus, the international jumper, Figaro's Boy, successful with Ludger Beerbaum. Una Donna herself produced Racoon, Una Placida, a successful jumper and Rubignon. Rubignon was listed for the Swedish dressage team in 2008 and 2009 and has 17 Grand Prix wins and placings including international wins to his name. He is approved with multiple registries and tested in Sweden with 9s for jumping. “His temperament is superb, true to his sire, his movement even better than Rubinstein,” said German Oldenburg Judge Evelin Vollsted during Rubignon's licensing. Rubignon was the most popular breeding stallion for SWANA in 2002 and 2003. He bred in Germany and Sweden where he also had a successful Grand Prix career. Rubignon produced many Premium foals and inspection Champions for various registries, successful dressage horses and several licensed sons, including the Swedish stallion Channon, successful at the Young Horse Championships, and Canadian Warmblood stallion Ratu. Replay was selected for the Swedish team in 2012 and made his debut as the highest scoring Swedish combination at the Baltic Championships. Premium colt Royal Flush (Rubignon/Cheenook) was written up in the Oldenburg Horse magazine as the most generous mover on the tour. Roxette (Rubignon/Warkant) was Champion Non-Hanoverian Mare at her AHS inspection. Rubignon's first foal crop since his U.S. return included site Champions and Premiums for various registries, including Ruby Novella R and Rubix. Rendevous ESH was the 2015 nationwide AHS Yearling Futurity Champion.
Wild Dance was the Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in Germany with a dressage index of 147.57. He also received a 9 for jumping. Wild Dance's sire, Wolkenstein II, was also Champion of his performance test and known as one of Weltmeyer's best producing sons with 46 licensed sons of his own. Wild Dance's dam, States Premium mare Milva, by Matcho x, has Gotthard and Abhang III on her maternal side. This nick created many upper-level dressage competitors, top producing mares, licensed stallions, and has proven to be exceptional. Wild Dance qualified for the Bundeschampionat and placed fourth in the finals. He is an accomplished international competitor, winner of six Grand Prixs and many placings in Europe. In 2005, he was Reserve Champion at the Neurenberger Burg Pokal Finals with Hubertus Schmidt.

Wolkenstein II produces great rideability, gaits, conformation and type as witnessed by his high breed values in those areas. Wild Dance passes on type, quality gaits, exceptional temperament and willingness to work which result in typey high-performance offspring. In 2011, Wild Dance had less than 50 offspring because of his owner's focus on performance. Yet, with only 24 offspring in competition, 10 had successes and four are placing at the Grand Prix Level.
