Onyx’s sire, Dante Weltino, a 2007 Oldenburg stallion homozygous for dark coats, was acclaimed Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg licensing in 2009. He has three outstanding gaits and shows great balance on the lunge, with excellent elasticity coupled with tremendous acceleration.  In 2012 he qualified for the Bundeschampionat, and was also approved by the Hanoverian Verband.

Onyx attended his first foal inspection in early September 2013 at Rideauwood Farms where was awarded Premium Foal status. The judge commented on his excellent lineage, superb elasticity and elegant, modern type.

In his third year, Dante’s Diamond was again presented to the Oldenburg judges – ecstatic with his ultra modern stallion style he was welcomed to begin the Oldenburg stallion registry process in 2016.  He went on to place 3rd in the Governors Cup at the Royal Winter Fair that same year.
