Bernwode Delauney
Hanoverian Mare
Born 16/06/00
Branded and Registered with the British Hanoverian Horse Society

Delauney is one of the few horses bred at the stud. She carries some of the most valuable dressage bloodlines in the world and is an excellent example of the 'modern warmblood' being very elegant yet retaining the outstanding paces expected from her breeding.  Having been lightly backed, Delauney was turned away due lack of a rider.

Delauney's sire, Don Gregory, is a son of the late, great Oldenburg stallion Donnerhall. Don Gregory has competed at Grand Prix level with Lisa Wilcox and had already achieved international placements by the age of seven. He is perhaps best known as a sire of premium foals and top auction horses and in 2000 was listed by the German FN as the prime sire of dressage horses.

Delauney's dam, Raissa, is by the late Oldenburg multiple dressage champion, Rubinstein, ridden for Germany by Nicole Uphoff. Before his untimely death Rubinstein sired over sixty approved stallion sons, including performance test winners, and more than four hundred graded daughters! His notable sons include Rohdiamant, Royal Diamond and Regazzoni who have become valuable assets to dressage breeding throughout the world. Raissa is now owned by a stud in Scotland.
