Pschezelle [ photo gallery ]

Pschzelle stems from a most interesting inbreeding to the same dam line, and is one of the last direct daughters of the superior dressage producer Pregelstrand *Pg*E* in North America. Despite her age, this mare has huge, ground-covering and very elastic gaits and is correct, with good bone and a lovely and sweet temperament that makes dealing with her a pure joy.

Mare family of T4C1a Perlmuschel (Klosterhof Medingen)

The sire Pregelstrand *Pg*E* was an accomplished FEI performance horse and producer of excellent dressage horses, e.g. the WBFSH 3rd ranked Hannabal, ridden by Leslie Webb. In 1989, Pregelstrand had more offspring receiving awards from the US Dressage Federation than any other stallion of any other breed. He was also a very accomplished competitor. He qualified 3 years for the INSILCO/USDF Dressage Championships. In 1983, he placed 11th in the USDF Horse of the Year at Intermediate 1 and stood 3rd nationally in the AHSA Finals at Prix St Georges. He was a member of the Silver Medal Team.

He was also known as a good producer of brood mares for the ATA stud books. He is a member of the Abglanz stallion line. Interestingly, this line was more dominant and popular in the Hanoverian breed. Abglanz, who came to the Hanoverian State Stud in Celle after WWII, very dominantly passed on his brilliant color and type, paired with exceptional rideability and also very good jumping abilities. His Hanoverian A-line is a dynasty in that breed and has produced uncounted international top competitors (e.g. Albano, H. Kemmer in dressage or Anka, World Cup winner in show jumping) as well as exceptional sport horse sires like Argentinus, Argentan and the younger Alabaster or Abanos. Due to him being stationed in Hanover, the number of Trakehner mares bred to Abglanz was very small, which today can only be seen as a great loss for the breed. Abglanz had three approved Trakehner sons: Kassio, Morgenglanz and Valentin. Kassio was of great influence, and sired the approved sons Aktuell (sire of the Grand Prix winner Fendi, C. Lebens), the Hanoverian State Stud stallion Gelria (sire of the Hanoverian approved 100 day test winner Grand Galopin, the Trakehner reserve champion Steuben and the mare Frieda III, dam of the late Grand Prix winner EH Friedensfürst, among many others), Grimsel (important brood mare sire, e.g. 2nd maternal sire of EH Hohenstein), Leibjäger and the exceptional Waldzauber (sire of the approved Grand Prix winner Arsenal, who founded a stallion line via Camelot-Gipsy King-Manrico, United Kingdom respectively). The third approved son of Abglanz was the show jumper Valentin, who was stationed at Klosterhof Medingen and sired the ATA approved Donauschimmer as well as the famous elite mare Balalaika, dam of the 1982 champion EH Bartholdy.

Morgenglanz *E* was stationed at Klosterhof Medingen prior to his sale to the US. He comes from one of the breed’s best privately owned mare families. The family was founded by the 1940 born Mira by Löwenherz, a smallish mare of significant influence for the breed. Among her progeny are the top show jumper sire Marco Polo (e.g. grandsire of the international show jumper superstar Milton, the Grand Prix dressage stallion Mozart *E* as well as the German elite stallions Michelangelo and Monteverdi TSF.

Dam sire Graditz *E* was one of the ATA's most popular and successful sires over the past 20 years and produced Grand Prix performers for both dressage (e.g. Ibsen) and show jumping (e.g. Advocate *Ps*). Graditz also left a legacy through his many excellent daughters. He was originally approved as a premium stallioin in Germany and stood at stud at Klosterhof Medingen for one season before he came to the US. His parental half brothers were the outstanding sport horse sires Arthus and EH Friedensfürst, the latter a successful international dressage stallion with Nicole Uphof and Lisa Wilcox. Currently, Graditz' most successful son in the US it the jumper Tzigane *Pb* (out of a Condus *E* daughter).

The dam line of Pregelstrand *E* was T4C1a Perlmuschel (Klosterhof Medingen) and traces back to the outstanding family of Peraea, who is also the foundation line of Pregel and Pernambuco. Recent successful stallions fomr this line include the young Pret a Porter, sire of the 2004 champion stallion Le Rouge, as well as the German FEI dressage stallion Poker E and the ATA's Prinz Sokrates. Peraea had a famous relative in Trakehnen, the mare Pelargonie, whose family includes the international top competitors Peron TSF and EH Partout as well as Pelion, the ATA's Pikör or the Danish Pidroneur, among many others. This is also the family of the 2004 Olympic eventer Peppermint III (M. Cortesi) and his maternal half brother, the approved Trakehner stallion Payano (by EH Herzruf). Payano and his rider Terhi Stegars won the National Finish Dressagr Championships two years in a row.
