De l'Or was presented at the Hanoverian licensing in October 2011 where he was the crowd favorite from the beginning. Throughout the approval process, he was clearly one of the best, and it was no surprise when he was honored as a premium stallion and subsequently sold for the highest price of the auction, purchased by Katrinelund in partnership with Kristin Andresen of Norway.
De l'Or (meaning "made of gold") is a stallion of the finest type, and he has three large, regular, rhythmical gaits. At the 2012 Stallion show in Verden, he was once again the star of the show, moving with grace, suppleness and self carriage you seldom see from a young horse. De l'Or has a temperament that everyone wants, calm in the stable and willing and industrious under saddle.
After he completed his 70-day stallion performance test in Schliekau with high scores throughout, especially for his character, walk and performance readiness where he scored 9's, it is now clear that De l'Or will fulfill all expectations under saddle.
De l'Or's sire, Dancier, was just honored with the 2014 Grande-Prize from the Hanoverian Breeding Committee for his success in sport and breeding. Dancier had already been the champion stallion at the 2004 Hanoverian licensing and the winner of his performance test with 146 points in 2006. He qualified for the finals at the Bundeschampionat in 2008 and is now trained up to Grand Prix.
De l'Or's mare line has strong genetics with Rubinstein and Argentan. What a great combination of performance lines! The dam line has produced several Grand Prix horses in dressage, but also a few S-jumping horses through Espri.
