The dark bay German Reitpony stallion Pan Tau B (by Power Star x Black Boy) has been sold to the Dutch pony A-team rider Maria van den Dungen. Pan Tau came to Van den Dungen for an extensive try-out mid January

and the purchase between the Luttgen family and Van den Dungen was officially sealed February 16, 2007.

There was an immediate connection between the delightful Pan Tau B and the 13-year old Maria. On their first show together, they produced their first top scores of 69% at the Dutch Regional Winter Championships in Waddinxveen, The Netherlands, February 10, 2007, and became reserve champions with only a minimal pointage difference with the winner of the class.

The 12-year old Pan Tau B is a well known German FEI pony. At the 2001 Bundeschampionate he won the Championship with the highest score -- 9.7 -- ever given to a 6-year old dressage pony. For several years German Louise Luttgen was member of the German pony A-team with Pan Tau B and she competed him at numerous international pony competitions in Europe.

Trained by Hans and Cora Arends, Maria van den Dungen is a member of the Dutch pony team and competed at the 2006 European Pony Championships aboard Milkshake. She is currently one of the leading Dutch pony riders, campaigning the former individual bronze medallist Hertenhof's Sunlight. She also owns the 6-year old palomino FEI pony Arts Demaran.
