April 2013: Nhintendo has gotten much taller than I originally thought he'd be. He has an amazing hindquater conformation which translates into a super sit down in the trot and canter. He has the look of a real athlete! Nhintendo is a powerhouse with a hindquarter that looks able to launch himself over any fence, or sit down in collection in the dressage ring. Look at his beautiful type and look at how good he can move!
Born on my son Dan's 32nd birthday and Dan spent a lot time playing Nintendo as a boy (where did the time go?) Nhintendo's sire Noble Champion is a Premium licensed Oldenburg stallion. He completed his stallion test in Germany. He was named a jumping improvement stallion for the German Hanoverian Verband. He was licensed ISR with 151 points. He was awarded the 1998 Oldenburg Stallion of the Year title. He has 17 Grand Prix jumping wins in Europe and 80 placings at S level jumping. He is producing jumpers, but also dressage horses. I bred Giadonna to him since she, too, is a multi-talented in jumping and dressage from her sire, Gold Luck and believe it or not, Donnerhall and Pik Bube were both good jumpers and they both have produced jumpers too. Birth report: This is one beautiful colt and I think he may be one of the best Giadonna has produced to date. We named him Nhintendo, since I have fond memories of Dan playing Nintendo as a kid.
I can't believe this wonderful horse has not sold yet. He is the real deal- as honest and reliable as they come, with a show record. Here is a recent video from Feb 14, 2017:
New video from Oct. 2016:
Hunter/jumper prospect??? He's certainly suitable for a junior rider!!
Nhintendo has turned out to be a PACKER with a sweet disposition and three good gaits. He requires no lunging and has been off property to a clinic in NJ where he walked into the ring and was perfect- also standing for an hour in the trailer while his trailer-mate was ridden. He went to a local schooling show on June 25, 2016- his first time ever in a dressage ring. He did not put a foot wrong- 68% training 1 and 69% at training 2. He was the high score champion of the entire show!!! What a nice horse for a nice price!
When I say PACKER, I mean PACKER!
Dec. 2015: Nhintendo is making such rapid progress under saddle that I can't keep up with his videos. Here is the debut video, taken just a few weeks after returning from the breaker:
He is a mild cribber. Does not crib with a collar on.
