Finesse – Finnigan / SPS Sir Heinrich / SPS Riccio, born May 2, 2021

What a feminine, sweet filly from the beautiful “Finnigan” (Floriscount / Don Schufro / Rubinstein) who won his 14-day Stallion Performance Test scoring 8.96 for dressage. Highlights included 10,0 character/temperament, 9.5 for rideability, 9.25 outside rider, 9.0 for his trot, 9.0 walk, 8.5 canter. In 2019 Finnigan was awarded the Weltmeyer Prize as one of Hanover’s best young dressage stallions!! His first foal crops have been turning heads with their beautiful type and movement, and this year his oldest offspring will be making their undersaddle debuts.

Finesse’s dam is a States Premium Mare from excellent blood lines. Her sire “Sir Heinrich” is from undoubtedly one of Germany’s most successful families, with 4 full sisters, like him, being awarded the “OLD” designation on the basis of success in Bundeschampionates and World Young Horse Classes. The damline of SPS Sally (aka SPS Suzie Quatro) also brings more blood from the immortal Olympic Rubinstein.

Finesse is a dainty ballerina, affectionate and gentle, who should make a wonderful lady’s horse, and will be valuable for both breeding and competition.
