    North Hill Farm is pleased to offer for your consideration Check Please NHF, an April 2015 Hanoverian filly by Checkmate out of Romancing Rio (Rio Grande/Duerkheim/Trautmann). Bred to be a top hunter, Landry shows promise to be just that. She is a typey filly with long legs, a beautiful topline and a pretty head with a large kind eye. Her movement is elastic and floaty movement combined with a nice flat knee and he uses her hind end very well, naturally stepping underneath herself. She will be a top contender in any hack. She has a very quiet disposition as all of Romancing Rio's babies have had. She also has a terrific pedigree for jumping and we expect her to be scopey with classic hunter form. Checkmate is a beautiful typey stallion, with a lovely expression, he is very modern, with correct conformation. Checkmate is a good mover, with 3 good gaits, he has a superb jump, jumping with excellent technique/form,and clearly shows a lot of scope. Checkmate also displays a good temperament, and is very nice to work with. Checkmate finished his 70 day test at Silver Creek Farm in OK, USA 3rd overall in the jumping with a score of 121.18. His Dressage score was 106.96 (6th) and Checkmate finished 6th overall with a 113.36. Some highlights Include Character 9.50, Temperament 9.0, Willingness to work 9.5, Gallop/Canter 8.25, Walk 8, trot 7.5 Free Jumping 9, Stadium Jumping 8.5, Cross Country Jump 8.5, Cross Country Gallop 8.5, Rideability 8. Checkmate was also one of only 3 stallions approved by the Hanoverian Verband and American Hanoverian Society following the test. Landry's dam, Romancing Rio, is by the legendary hunter and jumping sire Rio Grande. She is a 10++ hunter mover whose career as an A-circuit hunter was cut short by a freak injury with a 4 board fence. She is approved for breeding with AHS, Old NA, RPSI, and CSHA. She consistently passes along her hack winning movement, a great jump and an amateur friendly temperament. Landry is registered and branded Hanoverian. She was Top filly at her inspection with comments including "beautiful head and ideally shaped neck...good sloped shoulder...very muscled, powerful rear end. Good croup muscle, good gaskin and hock...not only is extension good but bounce off the ground, generation, is very good in the movement." She is also lifetime recorded with USEF and USHJA. Currently priced at $10k. Located in Central NY.
