1976 - 2007
Mare, dun, 153 cm, bred by
Brantshammar stud, Knivsta.

Ballerina was purchased as a 2 year old in 1978 from her breeder Brantshammar stud. She was a mare with character and charisma, nice to humans, but in the herd of horses she usually took the lead. Already as a filly she many times made older horses get out of the way of her.

At the beginning Ballerina was ridden and shown in dressage classes at club level. 1988 her first foal was born, to be followed by 5 more. Ballerina has been shown in hand at breed shows as well, and been given scores up to 39p. (silver and class 1) In 1999 she was inspected and approved for the stud book, as also oversized mares then had been allowed to enter it.


Ballerina spent her last years in retirement, as the alpha mare and a super nanny for the fillies. Being introduced to thefillyfoal born 2005, she soon adopted Potentilla as her very own foal and "Potty" for sure will miss her "mom".
