Determined GSF is a 2018 gelding by Der Graf (Donnerhall x Princess v. Pik Koenig) out of Britta GSF by Bound & Determined GSF (Blonder Has x Parasol v. Parabol). This guy is super bold and loves to jump! He is friendly, kind and willing. Given his bold nature and propensity for jumping, he should make an excellent eventer in the future. He could also specialize in any area.
Determined GSF is by Der Graf who is a direct son of Donnerhall. Of course, Donnerhall is a well known GP dressage horse and producer of many dressage superstars but what many people don't know is that Donnerhall is also the sire of many successful jumpers. Some notable Donnerhall jumping progeny where: Dirty Dancing 1.50m , Don Phili 1.50m , Donnerchamp 1.40m , Darius 1.35m , Dangerous Touch 1.30m , and Dominika 1.30m.
Princess, Der Graf's dam competed to 1.10 m before becoming a broodmare. She is also the dam of Alexa 225, 1.30m (level 6 US). This is not surprising as she comes from a very impressive jumper family with her dam Gina producing Picadilly 1.60 m, Pandur 1.50 m and Rondo 1.40 m as well as an approved stallion, several third level dressage horses and other impressive jumpers as well. Twelve of her foals had noteworthy careers!
Pik Koenig, Der Graf's damsire, while known mostly for producing top-class jumpers also produced top-level dressage horses. His most famous dressage son was Pik Bube I who competed to Intermediare I. Picino 7, also competed to I1 and Pentagon to Grand Prix. Two of Gina's sons (Der Graf's dam's full siblings) by Pik Koenig were particularly successful in the jumper ring, Phoenix 1.40 m and Prestige 1.60 m.
Determined GSF's dam Britta GSF is out Fantine by Fascination (Furioso II x Admira II v. Admiral) she is a Premium Mare with Old & Westfalen. Fantine had a small career in dressage, then a few foals and restarted as a hunter. Fantine's 1st foal, Wristow, by Weltstern, competed at 9 in FEI Prix St. George with scores in the 60s. Berkeley GSF is competing at Training Level Eventing in WA with success.
Bound & Determined GSF completed the 70 Day stallion test in OK. Even though he has very few offspring, they are seeing success in the show ring. Bound For Glory GSF, as at 7 is consistently placing in the high ribbons in Green Hunter USHJA Hunter 2'9. Brown Bunny GSF, is competing in dressage at 2nd level with scores in the mid/upper 60s.
Parabol, Determined's dam's damsire's damsire, was Hilltop Farm's flagship stallion for many years. He was bought from Germany where he had a career in jumping and transitioned to dressage in the US. He quickly achieved success in the Grand Prix. He produced offspring which achieved Grand Prix in dressage such as Pretty Woman and Pacino, upper levels in jumping such as Pedro 239 1.40 m, Worial 1.30 m and Padchucco P 1.30 m and CCI3*eventing with Rikki Tikki Tavi.
