Royal Mirage W


Royal Mirage W  

Not only is Royal Mirage W an absolutely stunning individual with his true black coat but he is also a fully licensed and approved breeding stallion with the Hannoveraner Verband in Germany. Passing both the 30 day test in 2006 & the 70-day stallion performance test at Schlieckau in Germany in 2007, including all the xray and test requirements.

Reitpferdeprufung M
02/07/2005 placed 5th out of 17 Horses.
03/07/2005 placed 6th out of 30 Horses.

Royal Mirage W went on to compete at the World Championships in Verden with rider Julia Katharina Von Platen.  

Outstanding depth of pedigree

Royal Mirage has it all in one sensational package...the beauty and lightness of Rubinstein I, the rideablity, uphill build and temperament of Rotspon, the elasticity and power of Wolkentanz I and the capacity for high level competition that the supersire Weltmeyer instills in his bloodline. And to top it off Royal Mirage's pedigree sports three repeats to the stallion Absatz. This A-line endowed its foals with light, free action, superb conformation and an unparalleled disposition, which makes them extremely easy to train.

A winning family

St Pr St Weltpremiere, the dam of royal Mirage W, also produced the licensed hanoverian stallion, Roman Lifestyle. He is a full brother, two years older, and competes successfully in dressage in Germany at S level.  This stunning stallion has spectacular movement and presence. 

Roi Soleil W, a half sister to Royal Mirage by Rubin Royal, is also competing at PSG in Germany. 

A Rotspon son for New Zealand
After 5 years of searching for a Rotspon Stallion Wendy McMahon found Royal Mirage W in March 2010 in Germany.  Bred from the State Premium mare Weltpremiere by Dr Beate Wojackez, Royal Mirage W was the first, fully approved Hanoverian stallion descendant of Rubinstein I to come to New Zealand, bringing a new option to NZ Hanoverian breeders.

Passing on temperament, correct conformation and hindleg action.

Affectionately known as "Miro", Royal Mirage W is the true BLACK BEAUTY with the best of temperaments and superb rideability. His calm, sensible and endearing nature earned him a Character Score of 9.5.  For those not wanting to breed a HOT horse, choose Royal Mirage W.

Royal Mirage progeny typically inherit his very correct legs with perfect length in the pasterns.  They have beautiful heads, sweet natures, upright conformation and super super paces. He consistently passes on that hindleg action so well known from his sire Rotspon.

Return to competition  

In October 2015, after standing at stud for 4 seasons in New Zealand's South Island, Royal Mirage W (Miro) was sent to the Australian city of Adelaide where he is now returning to training with Ty Zoontjens of BZ Equine Estate.  He is schooling at PSG level, with impressive talent for piaffe and passage.  The combination of Ty and Miro is already proving successful with Miro winning his very first test of the 2016 season at medium. We look forward to the season ahead.
