Liesel – 2005 Lauries Crusador/Bolero

FamilyWe imported this Hanoverian mare from Germany as a three year old in 2008 with the intent to “step up” the quality base of our small breeding herd. She has turned out to be a wonderful producer of quality foals. Liesels 2009 foal, “Wisteria Lane” by Wolkenstein II, has moved to St.Come Quebec and has attained her Elite Mare status there. Liesels next three foals, “Winslet” by Wolkentanz II, “Fleur de Lies” by Fidertanz, and “Fabliese” by Fabregas, each made the final ring in their respective foal shows the following years. At the 2013 show “Winslet” had a very good performance test and inspection as well winning Champion Mare of Show. This made Winslet a “Hanoverian Premium Candidate Mare”. The icing on the cake for Liesel at the 2013 show was the awarding of the title “Elite Mare Family”. Liesel was shown with her daughters “Winslet” and “Fleur” to make the 3 mare presentation that resulted in the title. We think this may have been the first ever “Elite Mare Family” title awarded in Canada and perhaps the first in North America as well. At the 2016 Hanoverian Inspection Liesel’s daughter Fabliese had the highest MPT score in Canada and was Champion mare at the show. Fabliese was also awarded her 1A prize and is now a Premium Mare Candidate. Fabliese at 4 years was Training Test Champion in Caledon and at 5 years has multiple wins at Baby Green in the Hunter world.
Liesel has produced another Fabregas filly in 2015, Fabella, who also received her 1A prize at the 2018 Hanoverian Inspection. Liesels 2018 Scuderia filly is long legged and looks like another dressage/hunter dual purpose horse. We look forward to a Fabregas foal from Liesel in 2019.

St.Pr. Haya – 2005 Hochadel/Silvio

We purchased this mare at the Elite Sale in Verden, Germany to further reinforce the genetic base of our small Hanoverian breeding group. Rather than keeping Haya in the pasture rearing foals we have been transferring her embryo each year to a recipient mare so she is free for dressage competitions. 

Haya achieved her GREATEST overall year in 2011! She scored many red ribbons with her performances in 1st level dressage tests, proved her genetic prepotency as the biological dam to 2011 Champion foal “Becks”, and was backed up by the licensing of her maternal 1/2 brother in Verden Germany in late October 2011.  


Haya was then given a holiday from competition and was allowed to raise her Fabregas filly “Fabiana”, in the 2013 season. Then her 2nd Fabregas foal also caught the judges eye at the 2014 Hanoverian Foal Show and was made Co-Researve Champion. Haya has foaled Fabregas babies in both 2015 and 2016.

Unfortunately we lost Haya and her Furstenlook foal during a difficult birthing in 2018. We were very proud of this sweet and attractive mare. Haya gave us many colts over her years but her only girl was her 2013 Fabregas filly, Fabiana, who looks like a clone of her mother.

Han.Pr.C. Fabiana – 2013 Fabregas/Hochadel was Champion mare and received her 1A prize at the 2016 Hanoverian Inspection. She had a very good MPT, was Reserve Champion Mare and was again awarded her 1A prize at the 2018 Inspection and Show. Fabiana now replaces her mother in our breeding program and is expecting a For Romance foal in 2019. 








Desirade – 2007 Desperados/Wolkentanz

Desi 3Desi was originally imported from Germany by the RCMP and exhibited very nice gaits, conformation and demeanour. Her sire Desperados is ranked # 1 in the FEI-world rankings for dressage horses. Previous to coming to Parkwood Stables Desirade proved to throw lovely moving quality foals. Her 2014 foal was the Champion Dressage foal at the Hanoverian Inspection in Eastern Ontario. We were fortunate to have purchased Desirade in the fall of 2014 to join our small band of brood mares. She foaled a Belissimo colt in the spring of 2016 and produced a tall Buckingham colt in 2017. We look forward to a Morricone foal from Desirade in 2019.




Han.Pr.Bella Lula – 2010 Belissimo M/Weltruhm

Lula had the highest scoring Mare Performance Test at the 2013 Western Ontario Hanoverian Inspection and Show. She has fulfilled her remaining requirements and is now a “Hanoverian Premium Mare” that we are proud to add to our breeding herd. Lula produced a Fabregas filly, Firefly, in 2014 who was the high scoring MPT at the 2017 Rockwood Hanoverian Inspections. At that same Inspection Lula’s 2015 Furstenball filly was Champion mare at only 2 years of age. In 2016 this mare produced a spectacular Fabregas colt,”Fax”, who was Hanoverian Champion Foal at the Rockwood Inpection with over 20 foals participating. Lula produced a Furstenlook filly in 2017 and a very nice black Fabregas filly in 2018. At the 2018 Hanoverian Inspection 2015 daughter Felicity had the highest MPT score and again won the mare show Championship. We look forward to a Fabregas foal from Lula in 2019.


October 25th, 2016 “on the spur of the moment” we pulled Lula and her most recent foal Fax out of the field, didn’t clean them up, took them into the arena and took this video clip to show Fax’s movement.


Han.Pr.C. Felicity – 2015 Furstenball/Belissimo M

Felicity is another home grown addition to our brood mare band and, like her mother Lula, had the highest scoring Mare Performance Test at the Western Ontario Hanoverian Inspection and Show. Her highlight in the MPT was her 8.5 for walk and 8.75 for Rideabiltity. Felicity was mare show Champion at both the 2017 & 2018 shows as well as being awarded her 1A prize both times. This past breeding season we intended to flush an embryo so this quality mare could start her competition career next spring rather than raising a foal. Felicity’s embryo by Fabregas had different plans and managed to avoid the waterfall of flushing liquid when the transfer was planned. On the 14 day ultra sound check the little round dot was hiding in there and still looking good at the “heart beat” check. Thus, little “Fembryo” has changed our plans for Felicity who will have to perform her motherly duties and wait at least one more year before starting a competition career. Fall of 2018 announcement: Felicity has won the “Fritz Floto Award” for the highest dressage MPT in Canada.
