Equinara Welcomes Alpacca

Our Breeding Company, Delaqour Premium GmbH, has been known for breeding the best German Quality horses in Germany. Recently, our broodmare Alpacca has been flown over to Jakarta and has made herself at home at the Jakarta International Equestrian Park.

Alpacca is a wonderful mare by As Di Villagana, a medium framed stallion who is a perfetct type for a riding horse. The stallion possesses excellent muscle, an outstanding topline and correct conformation. As Di Villagana has proven his talent through the influence of his show jumping pedigree with top results at the performance test. The stallion scored a 142,67 breeding value for show jumping. His scores were outstanding in all show jumping criteria, and the rideability criteria. In 2000 he won the Dobrock Championship for four-year-old jumping horses. He was then exported to the USA and had a remarkable career as a showjumper as he won many Grand Prix competitions.

Alpacca is the full sister of the licensed stallion Asti's Amsterdam who is approved for Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program. The bay stallion is not only special because of his influential pedigree, but also because of his outstanding achievements. Asti’s Amsterdam completed his 30-day performance test in 2004 with an overall score of 8.25, and 9..25 for style and 10 for his scope. He then continued to bloom with a wonderful victory at the 2005 Hannoverian Jumper Breeding Competition. The stallion then won various medium level jumper classes and qualified with a fifth place for the Federal Championship in 2007. Asti’s Amsterdam is registered with the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program.

Alpacca has produced several impressive foals. One of them is Grandeur. This foal’s sire is our own Grand Stakkato who was awarded the “Stakkato Prize” during the Hanoverian Stallion Show in Verden last year. Four stallions in total were honored for having the top scores for jumping or dressage at the 2015 stallion performance tests in Germany.

Stakkanos is also one of our foals that was produced by Alpacca. A handsome bay colt with correct confirmation and a lot of charm. He is by Stakkato, who was stallion of the year in 2007. He has produced 45 licensed Hanoverian stallions and at least 81 foals by him participated at the elite auction. More than 359 successful sports horses sired by Stakkato are registered. In the show jumping ring, Stakkato himself was also exceptional. He was a multiple German Champion earning of 240,000 Euro.

Other than that Alpacca is also a State Premium mare and we hope she will bring great success for the Equinara Team.

Buying your first sport horse: What you need to pay attention to

If you are interested in buying a horse, prices under 2500 Euros are not recommended, and rather risky. But how do we know if a less expensive horse is a good buy or not? Here we share some tips for you so you can get the horse that is perfect for you.

Whether you are new or a regular in the horse industry, you know that buying horses is not cheap, that is off course considering the fact that you are really looking for quality and performance in horse.

When someone sells their horse for a low price, we usually start questioning why. Always make sure you check out the vices and bad habits of the horse. And also make sure they are healthy. If vices or health affect the performance of the horse it could be a good reason not to buy it. Unless you consult with an expert such as a trainer who can help you train the horse and overcome those vices and have minor diseases or wounds treated.


Will there still be "hot brands" in 2019?

Photo:  www.sportfotos-lafrentz.deAccording to the EU- standard, since the 1st of July 2009 horses are required to be microchipped. Due to this new rule, a debate has surfaced. The question is: Should there be no more hot branding ? The decision for this has been made with the following condition: A foal may be hot-branded, however according to animal rights the foal needs to be sedated for the procedure. However, currently, there is no suitable anaesthetic, thus for the meantime the hot-brand will have certain rules and regulations that need to be followed starting 2019, according to Dr. Klaus Miesner, managing director of the breeding department in the German FN.

This issue has brought up certain discussions: Animal-rights activists and politicians are rather against the hot brand. The horse-world however, would rather keep the tradition going. Other than that, a lot of horse enthusiasts are sceptical about the microchip.

There have been many cases reported, where the chips get lost in the horses body or they are simply no longer traceable. The hot brand is considered a safe method for identification that lasts a lifetime.
