The Crompton House Stud Stallions


Our first two mares arrived safely in foal last year. Both have now produced super fillies while in quarantine at Rivendell Stud.

May 2008, we started building Compton House Stud stables, riding area and of course, grazing paddocks to be seeded and fenced.

August 2008 our new Stallion Five Star, due to arrive in South Africa. He will stand at Stud for a limited number of outside mares. More details under Stallions

December 2008. All going well, 3 yearling fillies and 2 colts are due to arrive in Cape Town from Germany - details under Youngsters

Five Star is the end product of 4 generations of consolidated breeding from his damline, which has produced the Graded stallions Sir Calypso, Lambourgini Diablo (Spr. Kl.S), Lomitas (Spr. KL.

December 2008

Finally, we get to bring 7 of our youngsters to their new home at Compton House Stud in Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. First stables finished, first paddocks fenced!
2009

Our first foals by Five Star have arrived. In October, StPr Wolandia gave us a lovely black/brown filly. Wolandia did her usual 5 minute foaling, and once again, we hardly had made the 3 minute walk to her box, her foal was already delivered. This is Wolandia's 2nd filly for us and we will keep her, as well as Hightime by Hotline, to add to our group of broodmares. We have named the filly, Fortuna. Wolandia is once again in foal to Five Star

Our next mare, StPr Rudina, produced a bay colt. He is a very correct, elegant foal, with potential to be a Licensed stallion as well as a dressage horse. Rudina is one of the most exceptional mares of her year in Germany, which is an important qualification, when thinking about keeping a youngster as a potential stallion. We have just sold her 2yr old filly, Kariba, by the World Champion Dressage Stallion, Kaiserkult (Trak). We named our new colt, Five O'Clock as he was foaled on the dot of 5pm. Rudina is in foal to Five Star again for Oct. 2010.

In December, our 2 new broodmares arrived from Germany. Both arrived well, and came out of Cape Town Quarantine just before Christmas. Our 5yr old, StPr Helvita, is in foal to the new young star in Germany, Royal Classic. Our 2nd young mare, Rosenstolz, is rising 4yrs, and also STATE Premium A, but has had a ridden career, so we will wait to put her in foal with Five Star in 2010.

2010

Our new mare, Helvita, produced a lovely filly in February. A tall elegant bay filly, with beauty and presence. Her name is Regalia, and we also plan to add her to our growing herd of Hanoverian broodmares.

May is here and the vineyard is quiet, giving us time to do more work on the "horseside" of things. We love living on a hill, but lack of flat ground, makes it difficult to train, and next year, start competing the horses. We have taken the decision to build an indoor riding school, which is now under construction. If the weather is kind to us, it should be finished by August.

2011

The indoor school is finally finished and it is amazing to be able to ride the horses after such a long wait. We have both the young stallions, Status Quo II (Stedinger-Quattro B) and Quantico (Quaterback-Salieri) under rider as well as Five Star. This year there are 3 foals due by Five Star out of State Premium dams, and 2 due from imported semen from Germany. We sell the foals and youngsters born in South Africa with the eligibility of German Hannoveraner passports or SAWHS passports. This makes sure our standards remain on the same high level as one has, when buying a pedigree youngster in Germany.

News 2012 January

All our mares have foaled down safely and produced some exceptional foals during the Sept-Dec 2011 months. State Premium Helvita, State Premium Rosenstolz and our youngest mare, Premium Hightime by Hotline are all infoal for Sept 2012. State Premium Wolandia, we are resting this year, after she has given us 4 super foals in a row. State Premium Rudina is being ridden .

Five Star is producing an exceptionally modern type with long legged elegance, harmonious in frame, well muscled toplines, correct limbs and his amazing temperament. They all show serious potential for a dressage career with extravagant movement, balance, and hind leg engagement as well as "look at me" presence.

For the first time, we have a few imported Dressage youngsters for sale, as we have kept some of Five Star's progeny. We are devoted to breeding for dressage, and our breeding program demands a consolidated pedigree is from BOTH the mares' pedigrees as well as the sire's. Dressage talent does not have the same hereditary ease, that has been found in Showjumping breeding. Statistically, it has been researched in Germany, that doubling up on both mare and sire bloodlines for dressage, gives the most reliable outcome for a talented Dressage horse. One parent is not enough!

This year, we have started riding our youngsters, after the long wait for them to grow! Now we are looking forward to starting them in competition, along side our normal stud work.
