SPS Sweet Belladonna K (imp)
Sire: Champus K (Champagner/ Top Nonstop)
Dam: El. St. Sira (Blackboy/ Brillant)
Belladonna's sire is Champus K, a stallion who has a rare double predisposition for both dressage and jumping. He is characterised by his tactful movements and a jumping style that shows great skill and leg technique. As a four year old he obtained several placings in young horse jumper classes "A" (approximately 3'6") and qualified for the Bundeschampionate for 5 year old jumping ponies. Champus K's sire Champagner W is a full brother to the successful dressage pony Konrad, his dam Piaza K was successful up to jumping class "M" (approximately 4'4")
Her Dam is the State Premium Elite mare Sira, one of Weser-Ems most successful broodmares who now resides in the UK at Blackington Stud. Sira is the first and so far only mare to produce three daughters who were champion mare of Weser-Ems by winning the Elite Mare show, SPS Syrah (Morbidelli), SPS Sophie (Dressman) and SPS Shakyrah (Branduardi M) as well as other successful sports ponies, such as the stallion Daimler (Der Feine Lord), the mare Shanyah (Vulkan) and British Pony Dressage Squad international FEI Pony Principal. Sweet Belladonna K is the maternal Aunt to the Weser Ems Licensing Champion Stallion Hilkens Black Delight.
Sweet Belladonna K was bred by Reinhard Kramer of Lathen (www.reitponyzucht-kramer-de).
Bella is a beautiful mare with an exceptional temperament which she passes on to her progeny. Belladonna achieved her State Premium Status in 2010 with an overall score of 8.1, including a 9 for her jump. She qualified for the Elite Mare show at Wusting where she was the 1D Champion in the Brilliant Ring.
Belladonna was imported to Australia in 2011 in foal to FS Cracker Jack and foaled a sensational colt, Roseglen Cracker Night who was sold to Vicki Chidgey of Freemans Lodge, NSW. In 2012 an ACE Elite filly was born, Roseglen Sungold, by Hilkens Nougat Cream. In early 2013 Sweet Belladonna re-commenced her riding career before injuring herself in a paddock accident. She has been placed back in foal to Kennedy WE for a November 2014 foal. Her Embryo Transfer foal by Powerboy (Downland Folklore/ Saoud) (IFS) has arrived and is a strappingly handsome bay colt with bling.
