Five Fires Equestrian Center has developed a small warm blood breeding program using world class stallions and our imported, Elite Hanoverian Mare Diotima:
Diotima is an Elite Hanoverian mare (the highest rating for Hanoverian broodmares). Prior to importation from Germany, she received her “1A” prize and gained “SPA” (states premium candidate) status. After producing her first foal in the USA, she completed all requirements to achieve her “EM” status. She embarked on a very successful showing career in hand, winning another “1A” prize and Reserve Grand Champion of the Mid-Atlantic Hanoverian Breeder’s mare show in 2007. In 2008 she showed at Dressage at Devon to place 3rd out of 16 in the Broodmare class with a score of 80.7%, placing just behind Iron Springs Farm’s Rabiola (2006 Grand Champion and 2007 Reserve Grand Champion at Devon) and Hilltop Farm’s Cha Cha (2008 Reserve Grand Champion at Devon) and just ahead of M.Ecloir (Grand Champion at Devon in 2002). In 2008 Diotima ended the year in 5th place for broodmares competing in the US in US Dressage Federation shows. In 2009 at Fairhill I and II she was Champion Mare and Champion Mature Horse at both shows. Diotima’s sire Donnerschlag was a successful Grand Prix competitor, as well as producing many successful Grand Prix horses such as Dr. Snuggles, Don Androsso and Donnerwind.
Diotima had a spectacular filly, Bellatima, in May 2013, sired by the world reknowned Bellisimo M, giving the foal two German parents. We made the tough decision this year (2016) to sell Bellatima (Bella) as we don’t have time to start her under saddle and begin her show career. Please see her sales page for more information.
Bellisimo M is one of the most sought after and successful sport horse sires in the world. He was champion of his 30 day stallion testing, ranking first in dressage with 9.63 and first in jumping with 8.77! His record breaking performance continues as three of his colts were just selected out of a field of 35 for the 2013 Oldenburg spring performance test in Germany, more than any other stallion.
Diotima gave birth to her 2014 filly by Sir Gregory on July 13. Please see her sales information here.
We want you to find the best possible partner to suit your needs. Some of North America’s top horses are available right here in the Maritimes. Please see these sites for more top warm bloods:

There is a great selection to pick from.
