Premium Mares of the season, including the
Highest Scoring Premium Mare
Already known as
the #1 producer of ISR/Oldenburg N.A. Premium Foals, Ideal has made
history again this time as the sire of Irresistible, the Highest
Scoring Premium Mare Ever Recorded.
For over a
decade and a half, Ideal has earned his place as one of the top
sires in North America, but it is the recognition of his abilities
by the breeders that keep him on top.
Molly Schligten is the owner and the girl in the
Irresistible’s Oldenburg Farm recognizes Ideal’s consistency in
producing exceptional movement and kind, tractable minds in his

The 2002 result, Irresistible, captivated Dressage competitor
Molly Schlitgen who purchased the lovely gray filly shortly before
presenting her to the ISR/Oldenburg N.A. jury.
The filly earned Champion Premium Filly status with an 8.5 in
the movement category as well as an 8.3 in Conformation and 8.2 Over

process of the ISR/Oldenburg N.A. Mare Evaluation and scoring which
might have been a good thing. Molly
said that had she understood the value of the score Irresistible
received at the August 2006 evaluation, she might have fainted. In
fact, it took an email from Barbara Brysch, wife of ISR/Oldenburg
N.A. Director Ekkehard Brysch to learn of the record-breaking news.
In the ISR/Oldenburg
N.A. history countless mares sired by Approved warmblood stallions
from Europe and North America and mares imported from Europe have
gone through the approval process. It is nothing short of phenomenal that the Ideal daughter
Irresistible is the highest scoring mare ever recorded with an
astonishing 117 points.

feminine elegance. Her highest individual score was in the movement group.
Her Dressage future looks bright and the jury agreed by
giving irresistible a 9.0 in Swing and Elasticity of Movement.
Yes, a 9!
Piaffe wishes to acknowledge and congratulate all involved in
producing this record-breaking mare. To Hilltop Farms and their stallions Riverman and Cor Noir,
to River Girl’s breeder Diane Rosenburg and to Oldenburg Farm and
Irresistible’s owner Molly Schlitgen, Well Done.

Piaffe’s ISR/Oldenburg N.A. Evaluation August 13, 5-year-old mare
Ingo’s Katze broke a site record of her own.
Ingo’s Katze was named in honor of Ingo Pape, the world
famous Hanoverian breeder who bred her dam, Catinka.
As a filly “Kit” earned Reserve Champion Premium in 2001,
interestingly enough placing second to In Step, the 3rd
Premium Mare of 2006 (more to come).
In 2005, owners
Charlotte and Melissa Haines presented Ingo’s Katze for her Mare
Evaluation but fell short of the 105 points that qualifies premium
status. There was talk
of representing in ’06 but in 17 years of testing at this site,
the few mares represented in following years never picked up the

The year made all the difference.
In fact, Ingo’s Katze made history herself.

at the test site’s 17-year history.

and Irresistible share more in common than Ideal as their sire.
Ingo’s Katze’s dam Catinka, the imported Hanoverian mare,
is the connection. Catinka
is also the dam of Cor Amie by Cor Noir.
Cor Amie is the dam of River Girl, which is the dam of
Irresistible. Just like

Pamela Lynn of Ocala, Florida in her pursuit of her next Dressage
professional dressage trainer found something special in the deep
chestnut mare. So much
so that it made little difference that she had to come to Oregon to
find what she had been looking for.
Like the two
Ideal sisters, In Step didn’t go from mud puddles to sunshine to
live a life of a broodmare but when your fancy dressage prospect
happens to be a mare, an insurance policy is built in that isn’t
an option with a gelding. Although
a bit slow to develop, Pamela Lynn’s exceptional care and spot on
conditioning produced a shining, round, suddenly matured
