GF DeVille

Born: 18 June 2005

DiMaggio x Biotop x Cocktail

Graded Hanover and WBS UK

Bertie - the second foal out of Byzantia and what a star from the moment he was born.  As a 2 year old he was crowned Supreme Champion at the British
Dressage Young Horse and Breeding Championship and later that year was Champion Stallion at the British Warmblood Society Stallion grading where he was the youngest horse presented for the grading that day.

GF Deville is a beautiful modern stallion with excellent confirmation and three outstanding paces. In 2010 he and his rider Charlotte Dujardin were the FIRST CHOICE of the selectors to represent GB at the 5 Year Old World Breeding Championships in Germany but for various reasons, including prior comittments, they could not attend.

In 2009 he finished his season by coming second in the Shearwater Potential International Class although he had the highest score of all.

In 2010 his competition record became more established finishing as the Reserve Champion in 3 National Competitions.

2011 saw him crowned National Elementary Open Champion at BD National Championships in Stoneleigh with Dan Greenwood

His 3 filly foals bred on the farm were all taken to the Futurity in 2010 and have scored an average of 8.60 to make him one of the highest scoring sires of dressage foals born that year.

Now graded with the Hanoverians based on his competition record at PSG and above where he scored a very impressive 9 for the correctness of his gaits. 

Bertie has an outstanding temperament and passes on his impressive movement so far to all of his offspring. 
It is with deep sadness that we have to announce that owing to an injury sustained just before he was about to do his first International competition, we have had to make the difficult decision to have Bertie put to sleep.  He will live on through his offspring and frozen semen is available.
