Promise of Rio Star

Gaudi SSF x Roemer

Promise of Rio Star

Promise is out of our KWPN mare “O” Baby and was born May 29th, 2020. Promise is very athletic and friendly, with superb conformation and a canter to die for! She is very balanced, powerful and uphill in her movement. The upper level movements will be easy for this future dressage star! Her beauty and talent comes from blending her dam’s famous foundation Roemer bloodlines with Gaudi’s modern bloodlines of Totilas and De Niro.

“O” Baby aka Penny

Promise’s dam, Penny, is a beautiful liver chestnut KWPN mare by Roemer (looks just like her famous sire) that is full of bling (full blaze and 3 stockings and a sock). She is a proven producer of beautiful offspring that share her markings as well as her fabulous movement. Penny was trained to second level dressage. Penny was born in 1996 and has excellent bloodlines and very good gaits, especially her ground covering trot. Approved with the American Hanoverian Society, receiving the top score of all mares presented for gaits “8.” She received an overall score 7.16, and was the highest overall score of all mares presented that day including Hanoverian mares. Video of her 2008 American Hanoverian Society mare inspection here.


Promise’s sire, Gaudi, is the first and only Totilas offspring standing in the USA. Imported in January 2018 by Shooting Star Farm, his dam is the elite preferent prestation mare Annabel, by De Niro. Bred by the Jansen family at Stable Joppe in The Netherlands, Gaudi has an exceptional pedigree. His dam also produced the KWPN licensed stallions Bretton Woods and Chagall D&R, and from these same dam line comes the licensed stallion Four Legends KS. Annabel leads the KWPN index for dressage mares. She has produced top sport and keuring horses.

Gaudi was presented at the 2014 KWPN Stallion Licensing and was accepted for the Stallion Performance testing, but due to a sport career ending neck injury in training, he could not participate. He is fully approved with the AES studbook.
