ES Bonheur Hanoverian Stallion 1993 Dark Liver Chestnut, 16.3 hh Brentano II X Rhonda (Roncalli xx) Approved: Hanoverian Verband, AHS, German Oldenburg Verband and Oldenburg Horse Breeders Society. Bonheur is the first approved son of the great Brentano II to stand in the United States. Brentano II was himself a successful Federal Championship competitor and was trained to advanced level and is highly esteemed as a hereditary transmitter of rideability. He sent one daughter, Brentina, and one son, Barclay II, to the Olympic Games in Dressage in Athens, 2004. The Thoroughbred, Roncalli xx, excellent in gait, has received very high ranking and is listed as one of the most successful representatives of his breed in the FN breeding value rating. His riding points are 147 and he is known to pass on good size and best character. In the third generation, the performance winner Glander, himself a full brother to the Olympic horse Grande Giso, embodies an interesting breeding variation to the top class Grande. The Trakehner, Garamond, who became the most influential sire of his generation in the Rhineland, introduced noble blood into the pedigree. The dam, Rhonda, descending from a great Hanoverian dynasty, produced the stallions Artist (Marbach State Stallion) and Augustiner (private stallion Hanover).

This is NOT Dressage as Bonheur would have done it! If this is truly Bonheur’s offspring, the old man would be ashamed! Bonheur, and his rider Christilot, had such pride in themselves! Bonheur had such total extension, he was absolutely PROUD of himself! He was a beautiful horse!

TheBrendadale says:

I’m trying to find any reference whatsoever to Christilot Hansen, our award winning Canadian Dressage rider in the early 70’s, and her beautiful horse Bonheur. They were an unrivalled team! Bonheur was totally the Canadian Horse of the Year, and Chris was his team mate. I can’t believe that there’s nothing on the net! I’m seeing offspring of Bonheur, but no recognition to the patriarch. Or to Christilot!

Great to be able to easily view the stallions we see advertised in print. Thanks for putting this online. He reminds me much of our Trakehner horses, you can really see it come through in him.
