The top NZ bred stallion of the 2017 classification tour was Morewynstowe Cascade, earning his NZWB stallion licence from German Classifier, Matthias Werner.
He was ranked in the top 3 stallions in the tour (almost scoring a merit with 77.82%).
Matthias said “He is a superb example of a modern warmblood, with a very noble expression.”
The Sire Line
His sire Rockstar combines some of the best genetics in Europe including Rubenstein, Rohdiamant, Weltmeyer and Florestan.
His grandsire, Real Diamond, topped his licencing for dressage capabilities and rideability. He had the top breeding value in 2010 at 173, with 25% of his first crop becoming Elite. Not even Sir Donnerhill can claim this.
The strong breeding influence from both the R line on his sire’s side, and the F line from the sire’s dam show through in Cascade’s swing, movement and trainability.
His Dam Line
His dam Tessa Dream II, through her dam line is rich in old jumping bloodlines including Battle-Waggon and Silver Dream, prevalent in many eventers and show jumpers.
The sire line, Festal, goes back to Court Martial which is also prevalent in top showjumping breeding. The Festal horses are all good looking with excellent conformation, and presence.
Until injury forced her to retire, Tessa Dream won every competition she ever competed in, both in dressage and eventing. She has amazing paces, and was extremely balanced, even as a young horse.
Tessa Dream’s progeny have all displayed exceptional movement and jumping ability, and have been sold overseas as showjumpers.
Lightness, Power, Athleticism, with Trainability
Morewynstowe Cascade displays huge swing and elasticity, scoring an 8, and has excellent paces, with his trot active and supple. His canter is uphill with good impulsion from the hind leg, showing the Weltmeyer power.
He is very rideable, with a great temperament, being a pleasure to take out, showing traits of his great grandsire Rohdiamant.
He was the Reserve Champion Sporthorse at The Auckland Royal Easter Show as a foal. Unfortunately a severe paddock accident as a yearling prevented him being competed as a young horse, but as his movement scores have shown he has now fully recovered from this injury.
His progeny show superb temperament and expressive movement being a pleasure to work with.
Morewynstowe Cascade will enhance any breeding program combining lightness, power, athleticism, with trainability.
