Bella Carmina

SPS Bella Carmina (Imp) Chestnut 16.2hh Hanoverian -

SPS BELLE CARMINA (IMP) -  Hollingrove Stud is excited and proud to have purchased of the stunning multi Champion mare “Bella Carmina” as a 4yo, at the Hanoverian Elite Foal and Broodmare Auction in Verden, August 2008.

She was sired by former Bundeschampion winner “Bellissimo M”  and her dam is the illustrious “Carmina Burana”, who in 1998 was crowned “Bundessiegerstute” -the title of German Champion Mare. In 1999 Carmina Burana was 4th at the Bundeschampionat for riding horses in the 4yo.mare and gelding division whilst pregnant to Weltmeyer. The resulting foal “Walk of Fame” ended up in 2nd place at the 2003 Bundeschampionat for 3 YO. riding mares and geldings. In following years Carmina also won the title of “Louis-Wiegels-Schau” and “Ratje-Niebur-Schau”, which together with her title “Bundessiegerstute” made her the most successful mare ever in Hannover. From Carmina's family there are many famous horses, for example “Weltino” with Ellen Schulten-Baumer.

Bella Carmina herself received outstanding scores at her Mare performance testing, and at the recent Louis-Wiegels-Schau, where she was Champion, she received scores of 10's and 9's.  

Bella Carmina's St Moritz colt Hollingrove Salzburg has been sold to Anna Thompson of Primrose Court Warmblood Stud in W.A. Primrose Court are thrilled with HG Salzburg’s first crop of foals – all are beautiful, good movers with lovely natures. Salzburg is now an Approved AWHA Stallion.

Bella’s Quaterback filly is now safely in northern Qld with her delighted new owner. HG Don Quixote (see Foal page) is a superb, quality foal with great presence and top movement. The combination of Dancier and Bella Carmina has resulted in HG Dami-the outstanding black filly born Nov 2013. (see foal page). Bella foaled a super, elastic moving bright bay colt by FRH Damsey in 2014, now sold to a young Victorian FEI level rider. In January 2017 she presented us with a picture perfect palamino fillyby the super performed imported palamino German Riding Pony Noble Dancer and she will be rebred in spring 2017.
