There are few ponies that move with this kind of elegance, rhythm and elasticity. Noble Dancer epitomises the dressage pony and is also shows amazing talent over jumps! Perfect rideability and attitude to work reflect his faultless character!
Right from the start, Noble Dancer was a standout. At only a few weeks old, he was purchased from his breeder Silvia Grotheer of Gestüt Immenmoor to be raised and produced as a stallion. Noble Dancer did not disappoint! Firstly, he was crowned Champion as a foal and then in 2012 waslicensed in Hanover where he was awarded Premium Status. In 2012, he started in Young Horse Competitions. At Schiffdorf-Geestenseth in May he won his class with a final score of 9.18 (trot 9, canter 8.5, walk 10, training 9, type 9 & overall impression 9.5!!) In July at Hannoversche Landesturnier (Hanoverian State Championships) he was the overall Reserve Champion 3yo for all Ponies (by 0.08%!) and was selected for the Bundeschampionat.
Noble Dancer was then trained by well known Pony Rider Wenke Kraus. In April 2013 they competed atthe Schleswig Holstein Schaufenster a tournament for 3-6yo Young Ponies. The ponies are assessed in freejumping, conformation, gaits under saddle and also by a guest rider. Noble Dancer finished victorious as the overall winner for all ponies across all age groups with a score of 9.0! Both the judges and the test rider awarded marks of 10,0 for rideability! His other scores were also impressive- trot 9, canter 8.5, walk 9, training 9, freejumping 8.5
At the 2013 Bundeschampionat (National Young Horse Championships) in September he came 5th in the final of the four-year-old stallions with a score of 8.1. A super achievement!
Also in September 2013, Noble Dancer won the 4 year old class for mares, geldings and stallions at the Landesponyturnier Bad Segeberg (State Championships) with an overall score of 8.7 (trot 9, canter 8.7, walk 8.5, rideability 8.5, type 9)!!
Since his arrival in Australia in November 2013, Noble Dancer has had a dream run in competition. In 2014 and 2015 he was crowned the Australian National Champion Pony Champion of Champions. The only pony ever to received this award twice. He has won every Young Pony class entered with huge scores across all paces. Judges consistently comment on his clear elastic paces and fabulous trainability.
2016 has seen Noble climb to Advanced level dressage with scores at Championships that rival the best of the big horses. A FEI start is not far away with all work at Prix St George level now established.
Noble Dancer is the ideal sire to produce Dressage and Performance Ponies. He will cross well with thoroughbred and warmblood mares to produce smaller trainable horses suitable for almost any discipline. Noble Dancer will add scope & movement, substance, quality & beauty- and most of all his perfect temperament and character!
Noble Dancer’s father is the elite stallion Heidbergs Nancho Nova who was himself successful in sport winning the bronze medal at the Bundeschampionat and was twice State Champion. He won his stallion test with the dream score of 8.95. He also scored a perfect 10 for rideabilty at the stallion test.
