He won the Hanoverian licensing in December 2000 in Verden and superior winner of his stallion performance test in Munster 2001. He received 135.9 points in dressage and values high above average for his show jumping. In 2002 Baroncelli was awarded “Best Stallion of the Year” by the Hanoverian Association. In the Bundeschampionat he won the first qualification with a 9.1. and in the final was barely beaten and became second and brought home the title Vince- Federal- Champion.

He participated at the World Championships for young dressage horses in 2004 and won the first qualification and placed 4th in the finale. At the age of 7 he won his first dressage on advanced level. At 8 and 9 years old he had numerous victories and places for himself on Germany’s top competition. In 2008 he was placed many times in Grand Prix classes and Grand Prix Special.

Baroncelli’s sire, Bergamon , won both his 100 day test and his performance test. At his stallion testing, Bergamon scored a dressage index of 126.12. He sired the Henststation Pape Foal Show Champion four years in a row as well as five approved sons, including the two Premium Hanoverian stallions Bugatti Hilltop and Baroncelli. Bergamon trained through FEI, exhibiting power and elegance in all three gaits. His last rider, Paige Peters-Windham spoke passionately about her former mount, “I’ve never had so much fun with any horse. He worked so hard for me and never said no! I’ve also had the opportunity to ride several of his offspring and each time I find they have wonderful ride-ability and trainability, fantastic character and great athleticism! All of them worked so easily under saddle that they made excellent amateur horses, but had the gaits and quality that any trainer would love to have. He really leaves nothing to be desired.”

Bergamon is out of St. Pr. St. Paola, full sister to the influential Oldenburg stallions Pik Bube I and II as well as St.Pr. St. Pirola who produced the premium stallion Donnerschlag. Paola is by Pik Koenig (photo, right), the most famous son of the successful showjumper Pik As xx (photo, below left). Pik Koenig sired 19 approved sons and 22 State Premium mares. His progeny were successful in dressage as well as in the upper echelons of showjumping. St. Pr. St. Paola’s most famous offspring include St. Pr. St. Primavera (by Donnerhall), a States Premium Oldenburg mare, who was the Champion Mare of the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show in 1992 and was also the Dressage Champion at the Bundeschampionat that same year. Primavera held a record with her States Premium licensing score of 9.44 for many years, with highlight scores of 10 for trot and canter and 9.5 for walk and ride-ability.

Baroncelli’s dam’s sire is the black French Anglo-Arabian stallion, Matcho AA who after being purchased by the State Stud, won his performance test in 1992 at Adelheidsdorf. His win of the performance testing was highly acclaimed, given as an anglo-arab, he surpassed all warmblood stallions at the testing. A well-known refinement stallion, Matcho AA offspring have good temperaments and rideability, quality gaits and ample show jumping talent.
