Sire of three stallions certified by ISR/Oldenburg
Of foals we have bred and presented to ISR/Oldenburg and SWANA, all but one have been premium/Class1
(Master x Miss Nickle Annie*)
Although a stall injury limited his showing, he has won at DAD, earned many high-score-of-show awards through 3rd level, had both in hand and under saddle scores in the high 80s, and received several perfect 10s on his walk.
Like his sire, Masterpiece has simple, supple lateral ability. He has a natural piaffe and passage, and his walk is huge yet collectible. He is elastic and comfortable enough for anyone to sit in all gaits. (Like all our Little Bit Farm stallions, he has been used in our lesson program.) He has beautiful type and color, almost black, with a perfect length of back and leg. In addition to his talent for dressage, Masterpiece has won in rated hunters. One of the Olympic riders at his stallion test said he would be a perfect hunter if he continued on that path.
All Masterpiece offpspring have been sold, either in utero or before the age of one, except the two-year-old Premium Oldenburg, Mona Lisa (Masterpiece / Hohenstein), who produced a Class I SWANA colt by Rashka, Recess, who is a multiple USDF HOY winner and 2014 US National Training Level Open Champion, with rider Kari Schmidt.

Sire: Master 850, is Kyra Kyrklund’s World Cup Champion mount and winner of the Swedish dressage championships for five- and six-year-olds. Master is also the sire of a number of World Cup qualifiers, and Grand Prix Tip Top 962, the only horse to win the Swedish Triple Crown (dressage championships for four-, five- and six-year-olds)
Dam: Miss Nickle Annie is approved Dutch, Hanoverian, Holsteiner, and ISR/Oldenburg. She has shown very successfully in dressage (a 70% avg.), hunter (Horse of the Year titles, 2nd in the Medal Finals), and eventing (undefeated). Her foals have amassed many awards:
· Her son Raymeister is approved by both AHHA and ISR/Oldenburg. He was the highest scoring stallion at the 2002 Stallion Performance Test, is a three-time winner at Dressage at Devon, and has won firsts at Regional USDF in-hand and dressage championships. Ray was the 2005 USDF Leading Dressage Holsteiner. His foals have won USDF/Cosequin Championships, inspection sites, and HOY awards. We bred and showed Ray till he was 6 years old and won at every show. Now, renamed GP Raymeister, owned by Ginna Franz, and ridden/trained by KYB Dressage to Grand Prix, he has become the most winning dressage horse in USDF history.
Pennies From Heaven, Miss Nickle Annie’s filly, was High Score Training Level Horse with her amateur owner at numerous midwest shows in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
Masterpiece, her third foal, received Class I, with scores of 8, 8, 7, at the Swedish inspection.
Opal, by Opus*, her fourth foal, is a premium ISR/Oldenburg mare whose foals have been premium for ISR/Oldenburg.
