About Soprano
SOPRANO'S damsire, the legendary CONTENDER, who won his 100 day test, is one of the most significant sires in Germany. CONTENDER’s
progeny are characterized by outstanding jumping ability, very good movement, and excellent rideability. SOPRANO's mare line (The Flattopia)
produced many international stars such as dressage horse Rubioso ridden by Ellen Bontje; Lord Kem (Champion Stallion in 1989); Continue; Maffay;
Calmiro; and Farmer.

ALSO FOUND on SOPRANO’s damside is TIN ROCCO, who won ten conformation tests as a three year old and competed in Grand Prix
jumping winning the Preis Von Blankenesse in Hamburg/Klein Flottbek (Derby Show). Of TIN ROCO’s approved sons, Traumtänzer won the stallion
performance test in the USA and Torero was his best winning dressage horse in 1990. His highly awarded St. Pr. daughter Gutena represented him
successfully at the German show in Verden in 1990. His son Tie Break was in the finals of the 1988 German Show Jumping Championships and in
1990, he won a test at the German event horse championships. In the 1990 FN breeding statistics TIN ROCCO leads as the most successful sire of
event horses of his age group.

TIN ROCCO’S sire, TIN ROD XX, was an English TB of large frame and excellent movement. He produced approved stallions and very valuable
mares including the dam of Landlord (Olympic horse 1988) and Lausbub (international show jumper).

SOPRANO'S OFFSPRING are modern in type inheriting his beauty, elegance, elastic movement, correct conformation, outstanding
temperament, athleticism, and dark color. Not only do they show great talent for dressage, they also show a great deal of scope and style over
