Solaris Fechinna at the Royal Highland Show in 2011

"Solaris Fechinna" is very much a product of our own breeding program, stemming from our foundation and successful show jumping Keur mare "Quinine".

Fechinna's dam, an SSH Ster mare "Chiquita" was our first homebred filly by "Cappucino Van Berkenbroek" a son of Contender and her sire is our own homebred homozygous tobiano stallion Solaris Buenno by our foundation stallion "Umenno" out of "Edwina".

The bloodlines in this fillies pedigree include many great show jumping sires such as Nimmerdor, Contender, Ekstein, Joost, Grand Veneur, with the influence of the Thoroughbred sires Lucky Boy and Pericles x. The colour comes from the worlds greatest coloured sire "Samber".

Whilst Fechinna's bloodlines are predominantly showjumping, the lines of Wellington, Nimmerdor, Contender, Grundstein & the Westphalen approved stallion Dottore have consistantly produced excellent dressage horses.

Fechinna is one of six siblings out of Chiquita, Achanenna (Umenno) retained for breeding, Bachinno (Umenno) sadly deceased, Cairngorm (Lupicor) sold to Northern Ireland, Exatcy (Amoureux) also retained for breeding and the full sister "Givennchy" sold along with her dam to England in 2011 infoal to Kambrabay.


On first outing as a yearling, Fechinna won the yearling CHAPS Non Native class and was Overall Champion reserve Inhand at the Royal Highland Show in 2011. Later in August she was Inhand Coloured Champion at Perth Show.

Her Parentage:

Solaris Buenno

Her sire, Solaris Buenno, is our homozygous son of Umenno. Regretably Buenno was unable to pursue a career under saddle due to an accident as a yearling, he has however consistantly produced beautiful quality coloured progeny with quality limbs, strong top lines and atheletic paces.


Umenno bred with athleticism in mind, an expressive powerful mover with off the floor paces. Shown successfully inhand as a three year old, winning many Championship titles the length and breadth of the UK and now in South Africa, including the Royal Highland Show, CHAPS Scottish Youngstock Champion, and overall Supreme Champion Reserve, CHAPS Open Non Native National Champion 2004 as a three year old, winner of numerous ridden sport horse classes, Burghley Young Event Horse Finalist, winner of four five and six year old young horse classes in the UK and Switzerland.



Wellington (now deceased) belonged to the famous VDL Stud in Holland. Not only was Wellington a successful show jumper himself, but well known as a producer of quality movement in his offspring. He has sired many ‘ster’ and ‘keur’ mares and many approved stallion sons including Farrington, Glennridge and Emillion of World Cup success.

Samber appears in both the sire and damline of Buenno. Samber achieved ZZ level in Show jumping and Grand Prix level in dressage.

Pericles xx

The English thoroughbred stood at stud in the Netherlands from 1976 until his death in 1987. He was one of very few Thoroughbreds like Lucky Boy to achieve Preferent status. Pericles did some racing and competed in Open Jumpers later in his career. His offspring made excellent sport horses. Pericles was best known as a sire of dressage horses. He is also the maternal grandsire of the legendary stallion Ulft. Not only was Perciles dam sire of the most famous coloured stallion to date "Samber" but also when combined with the Nimmerdor son Glendale produced the dam of "the world most famous dressage stallion "Moorland's Totilas".

He had already had a successful career showjumping 1.30m with Wout-Jan van der Schans in Holland and was competing successfully in dressage with Roel van Laar Swets at the time, thus gaining the sport predicate. He also gained Prestatie status through his progeny and has left behind him two approved sons Everest Hill (AES) and Parade D (Old) His bloodlines also carry on through Everij A (Edking Hill x DE SAINT URUS D'OLYMPE X ) a popular sire in Holland and is the dam sire of the Approved NRPS stallion Haico.
