Golden Strike was imported from Germany as a yearling, and now stands at stud via AI only in Otago, Licensed NZWA with Principal Status German Riding Pony Stallion.
Golden Strike – affectionately known as Clarke – has been standing at stud since 2013, first at A D Pony Stud in the North Island, before being sold to Maungatua Equestrian in March 2018. He will be aimed for both the dressage and jumping circuits in the South Island, as well as performing stallion duties.
Golden Strike’s pedigree is full of exceptional bloodlines, with Golden Atreju (sire) siring many licensed sons and premium mares and foals. His dam Leni is by Lucky Strike, who was also a successful showjumper in Germany.
Golden Strike is currently competing at level 4 dressage and about to make the transition to level 5. His lengthened trot is a highlight, and his naturally balanced and uphill canter is beautifully adjustable. We are sure he will passage and pirouette easily, as well as perform incredible flying changes.
Golden Strike competed up to 1.10m in Show Hunter and is showing great talent for this as well as proving his scope and technique. However it has been decided that for the 2022-2023 season we will focus solely on Dressage and getting him to Level 5
Since moving South, Clarke’s adaptability, his unflappable nature and can-do attitude have been outstanding – something which translates in how easy and talented his foals are.
Golden Strike’s progeny are already making an impression, with trainable attitudes, beautiful paces, and scopey correct jumping techniques - all the qualities we look for when buying a horse or breeding youngstock.
