We are very excited to announce the addition of Teresa and Willard Simmons’ Oldenburg stallion Royal Prinz (Royal Diamond-Dream of Glory) to our 2018 Stallion Roster. This elegant, long-legged stallion has had a long FEI career that includes CDI wins in Wellington, Tryon, Saugerties, and San Juan Capistrano. He was the 2012 Reserve Champion of the USEF National Championships at Intermediaire, USDF All-Breeds (OHBS/GOV) Champion at Prix St. Georges, USDF All-Breeds Reserve Champion at Intermediaire I, and 3rd in USDF Horse of the Year standings that same year.
Royal Prinz is sired by Royal Diamond (Rubinstein I-Inschallah). Royal Diamond earned attention as Champion of his Stallion Performance Test with an impressive 140 points overall and 150 points in dressage. He went on to win the Bundeschampionat with Lisa Wilcox and developed up to the Grand Prix level. Royal Diamond is also a full-brother to Rohdiamant. Royal Prinz’s damsire is Dream of Glory (Donnerhall-Pik Bube), a stallion that has proven particularly influential as a damsire as seen in the pedigree of Qredit Hilltop.
Bred only lightly in his early years, his offspring have already succeeded well in dressage and eventing. With his move to Hilltop Farm, Royal Prinz will now be available via both cooled and frozen semen for our breeders and we’re excited to see his influence in the coming years.
