The full sister to Oldenburg Top Sire Don Schufro, Fabiana was chosen the Champion Mare 2003 at the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show held June 14th, 2003 in Rastede. The 3-year-old chestnut filly was bred by Günter Bastian, Bartgeheide, and belongs to the Blue Hors Stud in Randboel, Denmark.
Selected from a large field of 99 qualified fillies, 19 finally gathered in the illustrious Brillantring. Beside the Champion there were three more daughters of dressage sire Donnerhall and three descended from Donnerhall's son De Niro, like the Reserve Champion Mare Uniqua bred by Helmut Kleen, Petersfehn.
There were also many offspring by dressage sires like Sandro Hit, Wolkentanz II, Florestan I, Lord Sinclair, Rubinstein and Rohdiamant. But show jumping sires also created some quality mares as well. I Need You, Pilox, Lordanos and Argentinus were represented, like the thoroughbreds Noble Roi xx and Rivero xx, who had half-breds competing successfully.
Jan Pedersen, President of the Danish Warmblood Society and President of the WBFSH (World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses), did the commentary on the event and congratulated Oldenburg not only for their lovely Champion Mare, but also stated that considering the quality of the whole show , the Oldenburg breed is heading into the right direction for a bright future.
