Star Gazer Farm is excited to announce our partnership with Rassicot Farm. We have many exciting plans for the future of our two farms working together to produce exceptional performance horses and ponies. We made our partnership official by welcoming a new handsome man to our family this past Monday! We would like to introduce Glorioso Noir... although to many North American warmblood breeders he is a familiar face.
Glorioso is a 17.1hh Hanoverian stallion by Glorieux o/o Grosse Liebe x Grundstein. Glorioso has an impeccable pedigree and is a testament to the famous G-line Hanoverian. His sire Glorieux won the Bundeschampionate and was the winner of his stallion licensing and reserve champion of the performance testing. Glorieux is by the immortal Goldstern. Glorioso’s damsire is the legendary Grundstein. His dam, Grosse Liebe, is the mother of three other licensed sons. Her dam, Luna, is the mother of popular Landkoenig.
Glorioso is a beautiful black stallion with suspended gaits and excellent conformation that makes him equally talented for dressage and jumping. He completed his 100-day stallion testing in Germany and finished in 11th place out of 40 stallions, placing equally well in both dressage and jumping. Among the highlights of his scores were an 8.0 on character, temperament and willingness to work, and constitution. He received an 8.0 on jumping ability and an 8.0 on his trot. Glorioso competed in the young horse dressage classes as well as in the hunters and jumpers with a junior rider.
His foals tend to inherit his long legs and well-set neck. His offspring have light, elastic movement with excellent conformation and character. He is a unique stallion that crosses very well with Thoroughbred and Appendix mares by adding substance, jumping ability and movement to his get. His foals have had successful careers many disciplines with regional and national championships. He is truly a stallion that produces offspring for all disciplines- jumpers, dressage, hunters and eventers.

Will be available to a limited number of outside mares in 2018.
More details to follow in October 2017.
We had a great day at the Maritime Hanoverian inspection watching 17 stunning foals being presented for registration. We were very delighted to have our Dauphinee (Dauphin/Contucci/World Cup IV) asked back into the Top 5 ring. The judge had some very nice comments about her suitability as both a dressage and broodmare prospect. He also noted her presence. Czaftig is proving to be an excellent producer with having her offspring in the top 5 ring two years in a row (her colt, Bellamy, was reserve champion last year). We hope that she continues to make exceptional babies for her new owners.
Daisy (Donarweiss GGF/Loredo/Paradox I) was presented for stud book entry and was approved for the Rhindlander stud book so her foals will now be registrable with Rhindlander studbook! :-)
Every year I underestimate how much work it is to take horses to one of these events and I was so grateful for all the helping hands I had > Kelly Boulter, Callie Campbell, and Katie Smith you all made for a great pony pit crew. Once again Eric and Stephanie were in charge of handling the horses in the ring as well as keeping me somewhat sane.
Last but not least I am so very appreciative of all that Ruth Hanselpacker and Nick Graham have done to promote the Hanoverian breed in our region and for all her work making these inspections happen. Congrats to all the other breeders on their very fine foals! The Maritimes provinces are becoming a great place for people to find top quality horses.
We have some exciting changes coming to our farm and will be making an announcement later this week... stay tuned for updates. :-)
