Apiro is a son of the legendary, Argentinus, who for an amazing seven years led the FN statistics of his age group for the prize money earned by his progeny with offspring competing at the international levels in both dressage and jumping. A successful advanced level showjumper himself, Argentinus sired 28 approved sons, 48 State Premium mares, and became Germany’s youngest millionaire based on money won by his progeny. He was renowned for passing on his willing temperament to his offspring. His sire, Argentan I, produced 19 approved sons and 119 State Premium mares and was highly regarded as a broodmare sire. From Absatz, the type and unmistakable face of his sire, Abglanz, is stamped generation after generation. From Argentinus’ damsire, Duden II, comes the dynamic movements and impulsion of Duellant. Apiro’s dam, the State Premium mare Pyrah H, is a strong producer of sporthorses including the showjumpers Perle, Pandora, and Power Girl, Rocci Balboa who has been successful in the young dressage horse classes, and the State Premium mare, Airline. She also produced the approved stallion, River Phonix, who won the Bavarian Championships and placed in the Bundeschampionat. Pyrah H is by the exceptional jumper sire, Pilot, who was the first showjumping stallion with progeny to earn one million deutschmarks. His second dam, Ceda H, is by the Cyklon son, Cyrus. The Hanoverian-based Trakehner, Cyklon, established a good jumper line and was a superior sporthorse sire. Apiro was Reserve Champion of his 30-day test in 2004 with an 8.51 overall and an 8.86 for jumping and a 7.99 for dressage. He completed his sport requirements in Germany by qualifying for the 2005 Bundeschampionat in showjumping.

In 2008, Apiro competed successfully in the Second Year and Working hunter rings. In 2009, Apiro will be competing in the Amateur Owner hunter ring with Summer Stoffel.

Comments:

Beste Gold is proving his importance as a “stamping” sire of Sport and Hunter types suitable for Amateurs and Professionals alike. This fourth generation American Bred possesses the proven performance genetics of carefully selected world-renowned sire lines and an exceptionally successful American bred Hanoverian mare family. “Bill” is handsome inside and out, possessing the “heart” everyone desires in a performing partner. He is known for stamping his foals with the same spectacular movement, exquisite versatility, and exceptionally kind intelligence that secured him the title “2005 Highest Scoring Stallion Licensed in North America” by the AWR. The consistent successes of Beste Gold offspring in Dressage/Sport Horse Breeding Competition have secured him a prestigious ranking amongst the world’s most noted sires as one of the highest scoring American Bred Stallions in the USEF Top Ten standings for 2007 and 2008. He is consistently improving upon his mare base with most offspring inspected Premier or First Premium with movement scores as high as 8.7! All have been very successful in both Hunter Breeding In Hand and DSHB competition and are finding permanent homes destined for high level competition in both the “A” Hunters and FEI Dressage venues. Those offspring already started under saddle are pleasing their owners with their easy rideability, quality gaits, superior balance, scope, and accelerated progress. Among his own many successes under saddle, he qualified for the USDF FEI 5 Year Old National Championships, and was USDF Regional Reserve Champion at both Training and First Level with his first time competitor and owner/breeder/rider Wendy Staub before a breeding injury in 2006 ended his competition career. These successes, and those of his siblings and offspring have ranked Magic Rose Farm as a USEF Top Ten Breeder for three consecutive years.

Comments:

Cabalito is one of the few licensed sons of the very elegant and popular Hanoverian State Stud Cordoba. These are new bloodlines to be introduced to the US that are known in Germany for producing horses of excellent character and ridability. Cabalito also has a fantastic dam line that through his grand-dam, Dompoesie, has produced the exceptional stallions Weltmeyer, Wanderbusch I & II, Don Carlos and many other renown performance horses. You will see many other famous stallions in his pedigree including Cavalier, Bolero, Absatz and Dominik. Cabalito offers an extremely easy and tractable temperament and is handled and ridden daily by a Junior rider. He was selected in great part due to his fantastic attitude! In addition to his outstanding movement and rideability, Cabalito is a fancy and scopey jumper. His competitive career in the US has been most promising, He was Champion stallion and overall Grand Champion three times at breed shows, culminating with the USDF Region 9 Mature Horse Championship. He also received the high score of that show with an impressive 80%. 2001 USDF Horse of the Year awards included a 5th place nationally for 4 year and older stallions in hand and Reserve Champion Hanoverian stallion. Cabalito was started in the hunter ring with great success and has been very well received by both judges, trainers and breeders. He received top ribbons and many wins in the pre-greens at “A” shows including the San Antonio Christmas Show, Great Southwest (Houston) and the High Prairie Summer Circuit (Colorado). 2003 will bring his debut in the First Year Greens. Cabaltio’s first foal crop started arriving in February 2002 and they couldn’t be any better! The foals have all been stamped with his beautiful expression, well set on necks and correct foundations. They are all displaying his graceful and elegant movement.

Calimero’s sire Legaat was the absolute champion of his testing, having received an 8.5 in free jumping, a 9.5 for jumping under saddle, and an 8 for temperament. Legaat is a keur stallion, with 6 approved sons, and is high on the index of stallions. On his dam’s side, the stallion Amor is well known throughout Europe and America as a sire of dressage champions. Calimero offspring’s are equally talented. Zancor, a son of Calimero’s, represented Denmark at the Athens Olympic Games. Cassius, a 2007 son, won Grand Champion at breeding shows and became the 2007 Great American/USDF Breeder’s Championship Series Final champion colt. Calimero’s son Carpuro SG is currently ranked 11th in the nation for three year olds with the USDF for the DSHB HOY award and 3rd for the Materiale Award for three year olds. His son Cuervo SG won Grand Champion at breeding shows from weanlings to three year olds and is 15th in the nation for weanling colts. Calimero is currently ranked 21st in the world for sires producing top finalists with the USDF. Impressive movement and champion bloodlines make Calimero an excellent horse, his ability to pass these traits off to his offspring makes him an excellent breeding stallion.

Comments:

Cascani is by the famous popular Holsteiner stallion Cassini I, a beloved son of the great sire Capitol I. This stallion line is one of the most sought after among breeders in Germany today, with Cassini I and his full brother Cassini II breeding well over 600 mares per year. Cascani’s dam, from stamm 456, is also the mother of the Alcatraz son Askano, who stands at the Verband in Elmshorn. Cascani’s full sister produced the Mecklenburg approved Holsteiner stallion, Cosineval (Cosimo) at the 2009 Korung. Cascani was presented as a young stallion and received approval in Hessen and in the Rhineland-pfalz-Saar region. He was subsequently exported to Mexico at three years of age where he was discovered by Erin Davis and brought to October Hill Farm. He is a very personable, kind and gentle stallion, and, typical of all Cassini offspring, he exhibits very correct jumping form and an amateur-friendly attitude. His athletic abilities are only enhanced by his exceptionally nice movement, no doubt introduced by the presence of Carneval and Marlon in his mother’s line.

Photo by J Parker

Cascani competed in the high amateurs and local Grand Prix, with great placings at outings in such locations as Vermont, Wellington, Tampa, Del Mar and Pebble Beach. Cascani was officially retired from showing in 2007 and is now standing full time at October Hill Farm. Cascani was presented to and approved by the RPSI and the AHHA based on his pedigree and his success in sport.

Chaleon has terrific dynamic movement, great jumping ability, and superior conformation. He is well mannered on the ground and extremely quite to ride. Chaleon competes successfully in the hunter divisions with John French on the West Coast. Chaleon has had wins in the very competitive First Year Green Working Hunters at the Indio Winter Series. Other recent highlights include top placings under saddle, in the Green Conformation divisions, and in the Green Conformation Model. Chaleon’s offspring are correct in conformation, share his beautiful head, steady disposition, and three correct gaits. His offspring have excelled in the Hunter Breeding Divisions. Charma CWF was the 2006 USEF Reserve National Champion Hunter Breeding Yearling. Chaleon’s sire Calido I received the incredible score of 10.0 for jumping ability in his Stallion Test. Calido’s tremendous show jumping talent is passed on to his offspring. This secured him a top position in FN breeding value placing him #1 in Hanover and #6 nationally in Germany for 1999. Chaleon’s Grandsire Cantus was a sire of show jumpers and produced international horses including Calvaro s/w. Chaleon’s damsire, Caletto I successfully competed in international showjumping competitions. In 1983 he was team bronze medalist at the European championships in Hickstead. In the same year he was the most successful German horse competing in Prix des Nations classes and the horse with the highest winnings at the CSIO in Geneva. In five years he won more than DM 100,000 - more than any German sire before him.

Comments:

Chesapeake, a 2001 son of Carvallo has matured into an impressive young stallion. Chesapeake is a beautiful mover with a bold jump. He was imported from Germany as a three year old and received his final stallion approval with the American Holsteiner Horse Association in 2007 with a score of 48. Chesapeake’s grandsire, Carthago, represented the Dutch team with Jos Lansink aboard and finished 11th place at the Atlanta Games. Carthago is a son of Capitol I. Capitol I is prized for his exceptional jumping ability, enormous talent and his willingness to perform. He passes these traits on to his offspring. Landgraf I has proven his ability to pass on his show jumping genes to his offspring. Landgraf I has produced more than 130 stallions and is the only sire to have four sons competing in the World Championships at the same time. Landgraf I is the sire of Freestyle (Lalique) who won the Aachen Grand Prix, and Libero who won the Dutch National title five times and the 1994 Volvo World Cup. Chesapeake’s first foals arrived in 2006. Wishful Thinking (Chesapeake x Alba Real) owned by Alison Maskel was awarded premium foal status at the Holstein approvals in Milbrook, NY. Who Knew (Chesapeake x Dominante) is a beautiful filly that exhibits her sire’s elegance and pleasant personality.

Comments:

The trends in recent Holsteiner breeding characterize this young Carano son: elegant, modern type with moderate bone structure have been carefully brought forward without the loss of the powerful jumping ability that is so celebrated in the Holsteiner breed. Churchill was selected by October Hill Farm’s head rider Erin Davis to be her next top competition horse. Working with agents in Holland, Erin imported this interesting prospect in late 2006 and has exciting plans for him. Says Erin, “We love his breeding, love his courage at the jumps, and I’m most excited about the feel I get when I ride him. It’s just raw power. Even at the biggest jumps, I feel like there is so much more under me that I haven’t used yet. It’s the most amazing feeling.” As a rider, Erin has always sought out certain qualities in a horse she purchases for sport or resale. “With Churchill, I was very intrigued by the pedigree, as was Wendy. We love Cassini and have had lots of his foals here that we’ve imported, and Carano is a full brother to Cassini. Carpaccio and Grundymann are also favorites. Churchill was a good choice for us in many ways.”

Because Churchill is being developed for sport, his book is limited to only five mares per year, and at this time, the breeding fee is at an introductory level. This brilliant and gifted stallion promises to contribute in so many ways to the American breeder.

equine viral arteritis Equine Viral Arteritis

T

here are many myths and much misinformation surrounding the equine disease viral arteritis. Here we present a list of facts in an attempt to clarify and educate the breeding public.  The disease is “equine viral arteritis” and is abbreviated to “EVA”.  The virus is the “equine arteritis virus” and us abbreviated to “EAV”.  EVA is primarily a respiratory disease, but also has sexual implications.  EVA is rarely fatal, although it can be fatal to young foals or debilitated animals.  The USA is the only developed horse breeding country to not restrict importation of EAV shedding stallions or semen from those stallions.  Horses can be infected as a result of coming into contact with acutely infectious animals spreading the disease through aerosol droplet transmission (e.g. when sneezing or coughing).  Horses in the acute stages of EVA may have obvious symptoms including common respiratory symptoms, conjunctivitis, and distal limb, mammary or sheath edema, • Acutely infectious animals may also be completely asymptomatic!

 Colts or stallions infected by respiratory transmission may become permanent harbourers of the virus in their secondary sex glands, and shed the virus in their semen.

semen extenders. Nor will it be destroyed by freezing the semen. • Mares may be infected by breeding with infectious cooled or frozen semen.  Mares infected through breeding will be likely to become pregnant at the same rate as if bred with non-infective semen.  Mares bred with infected semen that become infected themselves will be infectious to others for approximately 3 weeks following the initial infection even though they will be unlikely to lose their pregnancy.  If an already pregnant mare is exposed to another animal that is in the acute stages of infections, they may become infected via the respiratory route.  A pregnant mare that becomes infected is likely to abort within the 30 days following infection.  Unlike some other diseases that cause abortion (e.g. EHV-1, a.k.a. rhinopneumonitis), mares infected by the EAV will always abort within the 30 days following infection. There will not be a “delayed abortion” situation with the abortion occurring later in pregnancy.  An effective vaccine protecting against EVA is available in North America “Arvac” (Fort Dodge).  Arvac is a modified live virus vaccine, and requires a single injection to stimulate production of adequate antibody levels for protection.

 The EAV requires testosterone presence in order to be harboured, and cannot therefore be harboured in mares or geldings.

 Because it is a modified live virus vaccine, quarantine of the vaccinated animal is recommended following vaccination.

• This means that after the acute stages of the disease have passed (about 28 days), neither mares nor geldings will continue to be infectious.

• Mares should be quarantined for 21 days after vaccination.

 The only way a shedder stallion can spread the disease is through infected semen once he has passed through the acute stages of the disease (lasting approximately 3 weeks).

 Quarantine requirements are not stringent, and preventing the vaccinated animal from physical or aerosol contact with nonvaccinated animals is adequate.

 While “shedder” stallions may spontaneously cease to shed, they will not start and stop shedding intermittently.  Mares may become infected as a result of being bred with semen from “shedder” stallions.  Because it is a virus, EAV will not not be controlled by the addition of antibiotics to

• Stallions should be quarantined for 28 days after vaccination.

 Quarantine is required primarily to prevent the slight risk of seroconversion of nonvaccinated animals coming into contact with the newly vaccinated animal.  Quarantine is also required because of the unlikely possibility of an animal becoming acutely infected by the modified live virus of the vaccine and potentially infecting others.

• Although this can theoretically happen it has never been seen to happen, and is therefore a very very slight risk barely worthy of consideration.  Quarantine of stallions following vaccination is recommended to prevent the stallion coming into contact with an acutely infectious animal prior to his own antibody levels becoming adequately elevated to prevent him becoming acutely infected himself, and subsequently a shedder of the virus in his semen.  Vaccinated animals will have EAV antibodies in their blood (be “seropositive”), and there is no way to differentiate between vaccinated animals and animals exposed to acute infection based upon a blood test.  Stallions that have been vaccinated and kept vaccinated prior to being exposed to an acute infection will not harbour, nor shed the virus in their semen. • This can be confirmed by a virus isolation test of the semen.  There are a mere handful of countries in the world that prevent importation of seropositive animals, or semen from seropositive animals. • These countries are not major horse producing countries.  Major horse-producing countries such as the EU, Australia, New Zealand and Japan will allow importation of seropositive stallions, or semen from them, as long as the semen has been shown to be absent of the virus (indicating they are not “shedders”).  Seropositive mares are retested 3 weeks after the initial test that showed positive, and as a second positive test is likely, it is assumed that the mare was either previously vaccinated, or was acutely infected at the time of the intial testing, and is therefore no longer infectious. Glossary of Terms Acutely infected/acute: Any animal (mare, stallion or gelding) in the active stages of infection - not a stallion that is harbouring and shedding. Seropositive: An animal that tests positive for the presence of antibodies against a disease in their blood. Seroconvert/seroconversion: An animal that was previously negative, but then tests positive for antibody presence in the blood. Provided courtesy of equine-reproduction.com.

Comments:

Clair de Lune is a young stallion with a pedigree that includes some of the best show jumping bloodlines in the world. He has top sires in the first 3 generations, on both dam and sire side. His sire CONTENDOR, 1/2 brother to the #1 sire of Holstein, CONTENDER, competed internationally in many prestigious competitions. He consistently places and won top 10 in many Grand Prix such as G/P of Indio, Weisbaden Audi International, $50,000 CSIO International, $75,000 HBO GP of Delmar, LA International World Cup Qualifier with Hugh Mutch aboard. He ranked 6th on the USET West Coast World Cup Qualifying list in 2003. Calypso II- the sire of Contendor, was himself an international showjumper ridden by M. Ruping. He was later retired to stud and became an outstanding progenitor siring many famous show jumpers including Contender and Coriolan. Cor de la Bryere is the foundation sire of Holstein and sire of dozens of famous international superstars. Graphit is the sire of Contendor’s dam Grille, who produced Grannus (sire of Olympian Top Gun, Grannus Grannit, Graf Grannus, etc. a total of 7 olympic horses!). Contendor’s full brother Monty Morelos, competed in the 2000 Olympics with the Mexican team! On the dam’s side, Clair’s mother L’Vienna, a Hanoverian Grand Prix showjumper, became a broodmare due to a irreversible injury that ended her showjumping career. L’Vienna descends from Alme Z, who has sired numerous international showjumpers including Quicksilver and Galoubet A. who is the sire of Rodrigo Pessoa’s famous Olympic mount Baloubet de Rouet. Clair is a beautiful stallion, very handsome with a rare bluish tint to his grey. He has an incredible neck and top line. When started under saddle, this year he has shown us a willingness to please and perform and a very kind temperament. In the jump chute he has demonstrated phenomenal jumping ability, power and overall athleticism. Clairs first foals arrive in spring of ‘09.

Comments:

SIRE LINE – Concho is a product of sport breeding using parents which were both proven in jumping and who were both ridden to their successes by amateur riders, demonstrating their innate rideability. Sire Cascani jumped successfully to 1.45m level at some of the largest North American showing venues. Cascani’s own sire, Cassini I, one of the most popular stallions of Holstein breeding, was not only a very successful showjumper, but is also revered as a producer of very saleable, very rideable offspring. The genetics of Cassini I are strong in Concho, who, in conformation, is very reminiscent of this horse. More discussion on the stallion Cassini can be found in the comments section for Cascani, also featured in this catalog. DAM LINE – Concho’s Westfalen dam, Ravenna, also competed successfully to the 1.45m level at shows across the United States. Her greatest strengths were her handiness on technical courses, and her blooded pedigree surely complements the steady strengths of the Holsteiner “C” blood. Westfalen stallion Cyrian, with Trakehner bloodlines, has been very important for the jumping side of this breed. Cyrian was a descendant of the Celle state stud Trakehner stallion Cyklon by Helikon, who founded Westfalia’s C-line (not to be mistaken with the Holstein C-line), which produced a number of very good jumpers. GENERAL – Concho is just starting his career and competed in YJC 5 Year old classes in 2008. Comments to his character and ability are already received by professional observers. His willingness in the free schooling chute attests to his future success at high levels of sport. As we are keen to develop him properly, he will stand to a limited book of mares in 2008 and participated in the YJC Midwest championships.

Comments:

A prototype of his noble pedigree, Contester II embodies the best in the Holstein horse. His sire Contender, one of the world’s greats, he has produced over 50 approved sons excelling in both jumping and dressage throughout Europe. Contester II’s dam (Lancetto/ Lakai) produced 2 approved stallions and sporthorses excelling at advanced levels in Europe. Her Holsteiner stemm line (1020) famed for generating approved stallions such as Quinar (Quidam de Revel), and Libero (Lido) is highly sought after for producing the International show jumpers Lucca by Landgraf ( ridden by Alberto Rivera Prado for MEX and Silas 55 by Slivano (ridden by Helena Weimberg for GER) Contester II has amassed an incredible show record for a 6 year old in both USDF breed shows as a youngster and now under saddle, they include many USDF breed show championships.

“CORONADO WW” is a beautiful stallion of type and substance. His Dutch influenced pedigree is acknowledged to include some of the best and most prepotent sires in the world. Coronado’s sire, Orlando has proven himself as a Grand Prix Jumper winning many competitions in Europe. Grandsire, the Keur stallion Heartbreaker is presently one of the best sport horse producers in Europe. His sire, the legendary KEUR PREFERENT Stallion Nimmerdor is seen twice in Coronado’s pedigree on both the Sire and Dams side. Coronado’s dam’s sire, the French Stallion Kannan has many international Grand Prix wins. Coronado’s talent and pedigree have laid the foundation for not only a great horse but a sire as well. Gaining preliminary approvals at only 3 years of age with praise from inspectors for his explosive jump in “textbook” style. In 2008 Coronado WW was approved with the ISR/OLD NA, with high score at the keuring, and also produced his 1st premium foal. Coronado WW slowly and carefully began his career with a solid dressage foundation in 2006 earning 4th place at the USDF BC Region 2 Finals. In 2007 he moved into the Jumper Ring and as a testament to his kind-willing attitude is successfully competing with an Amateur rider. Coronado’s first offspring arrived in 2006 a call to his genetics Coronado WW is consistently producing top quality offspring with 1st & 2nd placings at all inspections. Offspring of 2008 placed 1st - 5th at the BWP Keuring, with one colt recommended as a stallion prospect. Offspring of 2007 & 2006 won the Futurity classes.

Crown Affair is a rare combination of a Cor de la Bryere son out of a Capitol 1 mare. This dark brown stallion has had an impeccable career as a show hunter. He was the 2005 Zone 7 Horse of the Year for Regular Conformation Hunters. He has been nationally ranked in the top 15 in Amateur Owner Hunters 36 and over every year since being purchased by Yellow Dog Farm in 2006. He was 5th in the country in 2008 and was second in the Amateur Owner World Hunter Rider Finals at Capital Challenge later that year. That same year, he received good ribbons over fences at both of the indoor shows and was 3rd in the under saddle at Washington and 2nd in the under saddle at Harrisburg. His 2008 foal, “Crown Caper� was named a Premium Foal by the Director of the Breeding Department of the Holsteiner Verband at an inspection in October 2008. He has many other previous foals, primarily in the northwest, but this owner does not have detailed knowledge on these babies. Crown Affair has a relaxed disposition, good movement and a beautiful jumping style. His show career dictates that he be available by frozen semen only, but he has been incredibly successful covering mares in this manner.

Cunningham is a 17.1 hh imported Holstein stallion. He scored 9.0 on type and was approved by the Holsteiner Verband in Germany. Also approved by the AHHA. Son of the Grand Prix International sire Cassini I out of a Grand Prix dressage and jumper sire Contender mare, Stamm 1907. This is a very old mare line know for their performance and work ethic. Cunningham is a breathtaking combination of talent and conformation. The favorite of grooms and handlers, he is a joy to watch and ride. In his last two shows, Cunningham had 23 classes with 14-1st and 4-2nds. In 2007 alone, he was Champion 17 times (in Green Conf./,2nd YR.,/and Reg.Conf.classes) and Res. Champ. another 8 times. Cunningham had many shows where we won 5 out of 6 classes in his divisions. At Menlo Charity Cunningham was Hi-Point horse for the entire show. His babies are a copy of himself, beautiful both in looks, conformation, and character. The easiest babies I have ever worked with and put under saddle. Bookings are limited due to show schedule. In 2007 he alternated between 2nd YR. and Reg. Conf. Hunters. He showed the Gr. Conf. Hunter at each show. In 2008, he will be shown in Regular Conformation and Regular Working Hunter. We were Champion 20 out of 20 shows in 2008 in Regular Conformation Hunters.

DEJA BLUE B’s sire Ferro was known as the ‘Black Pearl’ of the KWPN. He won team Silver at the 1998 World Equestrian Games, 1999 European Championships and the 2000 Olympic Games. Ferro and rider Coby van Baalen posted a personal best of 80+% in their kür to earn a Silver Medal at the World Cup Finals in ‘s Hertogenbosch behind Anky Van Grunsven and Bonfire. To date, Ferro has sired 10 licensed sons, including Metall, Kennedy, Rhodium, Lorenzo and Hilltop Rousseau, Silver Medalist at the FEI Young Dressage Horse Championships. Ferro’s sire Ulft descends from the same sire line that produced Furioso II and his dam, Brenda, was by Farn who sired KWPN Stallion of the Century, Nimmerdor. DEJA BLUE B’s dam Song Sung Blue B has already produced two BWP licensed stallions—Deja Blue B and Blue Bayou B (by Simsalabim) and a Premium, performance tested daughter Apollonia B. • Song Sung Blue B’s sire Branco was the first stallion in the U.S. to be fully licensed as a Belgian Warmblood breeding stallion. Recently deceased, Branco was a grandson of the legendary jumper sire Ramiro (aka G Ramiro Z), considered the most influential jumper sire of the last 50 years and sire of Olympic Medalists Ratina Z, Royal Kaliber, etc. and countless other international competitors and licensed sons including Rebel I & II Z, Robin I & II Z, Ronald, Raphael, Damiro, Ramino, Armstrong, Zeoliet, etc. BRANCO’S DAM, UGONDA, produced two-time Olympian Freud, who competed under the name Radisson Diamond. Ugonda’s half-sister Agnetha (Le Mexico) produced the sBs licensed stallion Elton III. In 2008 DEJA BLUE B completed his first year of performance requirements for the BWP (by qualifying for the 5 yo Midwest YJC). This multi-talented stallion should demonstrate his ability in any discipline! We expect that Blue will finish his performance requirements in 2009 and become permanently licensed with the BWP and RPSI registries.

Breeding to Improve our National Standard, by Susanne Hassler

A

s a mare owner with this Stallion Directory in your hands, you must be considering what choices lay ahead for the upcoming breeding season. This moment is an opportunity to fully evaluate your objectives and to recognize how your choices will impact our national standard as a breeding community. Have you reflected over the past breeding season and its outcome? Have you objectively evaluated the quality of your last foal crop and those that came before? Do you have a system in place to raise healthy, well-adjusted, future riding horses? The market for sporthorses has become globally competitive. As breeders, we have the obligation to not only meet our local market, but to also to consider our contribution to the North American standard. We often hear that American buyers head to Europe to find the top quality horses that they require. As North American breeders, we are the sole parties in the position to change this practice. We must work together to ensure that the foals we put on the ground here have the class and quality to be competitive in the global marketplace. Whatever type of breeder you are, it is still vital that you constantly strive to put the best quality foal on the ground. In North America, we have all the same categories of breeders as in Europe. We have breeders who breed simply for personal pleasure and passion; breeders who are professional minded and strive to produce foals that meet the global standards; and breeders who have the desire and interest but who lack the experience and expertise to make the best choices. The commitment you are making as a breeder begins with the scrutiny of your own mare and the careful selection of the right stallion. As a wise person once said: it costs as much to raise an average foal as it does a good one! Good breeding requires often making tough and realistic decisions. In order to achieve our goals, we often need to be open to a healthy dose of reality. The most common pitfall for all of us is the “breeder’s trap”…where we continue to breed a beloved mare whose foals present difficult challenges. For example, if OCD consistently shows up in your program, though you’ve addressed nutrition and perhaps switched stallions time and time again, it is likely time to cull that mare. If the movement of offspring produced out of a particular mare, despite her top titles and individual accomplishments, continues to fall short of what you’re aiming for, she may not be the producer of your dreams. Has temperament in her offspring consistently been an issue? If the fertility of a mare each season brings

frustrations and financial challenges to all involved, is she really worth breeding this year, especially in today’s economic climate? These may be rather sobering considerations, but breeding can be a risky and difficult proposition from the start. On the other hand, we must remember that breeding is a process, and that success is not immediate. The best time to evaluate the potency of a particular combination is when the offspring are about four or five years of age. The rideability, athleticism, and soundness of a prospect are best assessed when that individual becomes a riding horse. So much can be determined about your mare’s ability as a producer when you are able to examine her offspring, even early on, as riding horses. When following the latest breed trends, where the qualities of a stallion’s influence may not yet be known, it is also particularly important to evaluate his offspring when they reach riding age. While the many considerations of a successful breeding may seem daunting, it can be helpful to take the long view about how to achieve your goal and then break down each step. Be sure that you feel you are working with a stallion owner who works with you and is committed to your success. Be certain that the quality of the service or frozen semen you receive has guarantees of quality and that you are not buying blindly. It can be expensive to experience this kind of breeding disappointment; protect yourself at the outset. Proper management of your mare throughout her pregnancy is also crucial to successful breeding. Seek expert input on how to manage her nutrition so that the foal is not harmed during gestation by a lack of proper nutritional management. The mare’s pregnancy must be optimally supported with a careful balance of nutrients and minerals, supporting the foal’s development in utero from conception to birth, and on through its growing years. Overlooking this critical area can become quite costly, both in terms veterinary bills and disappointments. Provide your mare with a living situation which is healthy, safe and appropriate for a mare and foal. The importance of this cannot be over stressed. A regular boarding or training facility is an all-too-common choice for foaling out a mare and yet may not be appropriate, especially if the mare and foal cannot be properly separated from the rest of the population. Common diseases can and will readily affect both the mare’s pregnancy as well as the health of the newborn foal.

for the birth of your foal, consider also how the foal’s needs will be met after weaning. The healthiest environment for a foal is to have peers its own age and the space and freedom to move about and exercise those its developing limbs. Ensure that your foal will have a safe pasture and protection through the hot and cold months of the year, depending on your area. Consider your foal’s first year of life and ask: who will handle and educate that foal so that its acceptance, trust, and respect for people will be optimized? What will be the foal’s day-to-day routine? Decide who will provide the handling and education for the growing youngster as he/ she learns about the farrier, veterinarian, and possibly even breed shows. Raising the young horse to have calm, quiet acceptance of these situations will greatly increase its value in our marketplace, and will also improve the long term happiness of that horse as an individual. Lastly, consider how your young prospect will be educated as riding horse. Have you identified resources for a positive experience and outcome for the youngster into which you will have invested so much? Fortunately, more and more professionals are choosing to focus on services for the development of young horses. Be sure to find an excellent resource for starting your youngsters under saddle, as well as the trainer who may be needed for the next step of educating the horse toward its discipline. You may need to find different trainers for different stages to achieve all these phases of training successfully. This may mean finding assistance for the phases that are outside of your own skills. It’s a time to think about your long term goals and not to minimize the investment necessary to meet them. Clearly, if marketing the foal you produce is your goal, then begin now to understand what it will take to successfully market a youngster. Network with trainers and find local breeders’ groups that might facilitate this objective. We can produce, raise and market quality horses here in North America, but it takes an objective view and a true commitment from start to finish. We can change the standards of quality that buyers expect to find in our own country and we will, as we approach breeding with a global standard in mind. We are a nation with great passion and resources; let’s direct them effectively and continue to build our sporthorse industry with quality, integrity, and national pride!

Fabuleux is a Class I Elite Hanoverian Stallion who successfully completed his 100-Day Test in Adelheidsdorf where his exceptional scores included Walk 9, Trot 9, Canter 10, Temperament 9, Rideability 9, Willingness to Work 9. He received the outstanding dressage score of 130.45 points. After his licensing in Verden, he was purchased by leading international dressage stable, Gestüt Hoeftehof, where he competed successfully with rider Holga Finken. Fabuleux’s sire, Fabriano was Champion of his 100-Day Test. According to the Hannoveraner Jahrbuch Hengst, Fabriano scored 136 on his mare’s dressage qualities, 125 on their jumping abilities and 157 on their foundation (leg scores/correctness) making him one of the very few stallions on the Hanoverian Verband’s “Toplist” for siring both outstanding dressage and jumping qualities. Dr. Wilkens, former managing director of the VhW, names Fabriano “one of the best performance horse producers of Hanover ’s breeding program”. Fabuleux’s dam, SPS Auguste, full sister to licensed stallion Aquamarin, was an immensely successful broodmare and producer of four SPS mares and two licensed stallions. She represents six generations of SPS mares. Too numerous to list, Fabuleux’s foals are excelling at breed shows and many have been named Top Foals and Premium Foals at their AHS, GOV and ISR/OLD NA inspections across the United States and Canada. They have repeatedly won Get of Sire classes at MSEDA, NEDA, MODA, KDA and Eden Park DSHB scoring as high as 82%. Fabuleux’s first three-year olds are exceeding expectations as they begin their under saddle careers. They are noted for their outstanding trainabliity and rideability. Fabuleux is DNA tested homozygous for black pigment. Foals will be black, bay or brown in the absence of modifying genes.

Comments:

From the first foal crop of the Hanoverian stallion Fred Astaire, Fielding offers new bloodlines to the Hilltop Farm stallion line-up and important diversity for North American breeders. His sire Fred Astaire is an FEI dressage stallion that won his Intermediaire I debut in 2008 with Tom Noone. Fred Astaire’s sire, Fabriaino, won his Performance Testing with a score of 133 points and high marks in both the dressage and jumping portions. He has produced more than 10 approved sons, more than 50 State Premium Mares, and almost 50 candidates for the Verden Elite Auctions. Fielding’s dam Lesley is by Lessing, a former Celle State Stud stallion who was exported to Canada to stand at Spruce Meadows. A Grand Prix jumper himself, Lessing sired talented jumpers and event horses who were known for their level-headedness and excellent canters. Lessing was by Lugano I, the most successful son of the Thoroughbred improvement sire, Der Loewe xx. Lesley’s damsire, Banter, was from the proven Bolero/Grande breeding nick and Banter daughters in particular have been valued as broodmares in North America. In 2007, Fielding was licensed by the American Hanoverian Society. He proceeded on to the 100-day stallion test and finished as the top placed North American bred stallion and in fifth place overall. His overall score of 125 points earned the Class I designation and a 9 on character and 8’s on temperament, ability to work, willingness to work, rideability, and general jumping aptitude marked his highlights. Fielding offers powerful movement marked with a consistent, steady rhythm and an active, engaged hindleg. His jumping ability offers both scope and classic technique, and his enthusiasm for this work is obvious. He shows remarkable composure as a young stallion and has an inherent desire to please his rider. Fielding moved to Hilltop Farm in the fall of 2008 and we look forward to his competitive debut and the birth of his first foals in 2009. Wendulan Fabriano Agmara

Comments:

Figaro B’s sire, Pavarotti vd Helle has consistently produced offspring at the highest levels of both dressage and jumping competition. Pavarotti himself was the reserve champion of the jumping test for Rheinland and Westfalen as well as the BWP. Following a trailer accident, Pavarotti became a champion dressage performer. The descendants of Pavarotti are notable for their good looks. As well, they combine super movement with excellent jumping technique. Figaro B’s grandsire, Pilot is without doubt the best Westphalian producer of jumpers. Pilot has produced about thirty Grand Prix horses including Priamos, Bugatti Pedro, Piro, and Panama. Damsire Wellington was reserve champion of the stallion testing in 1983 and went on to place 3rd in the National stallion competition in 1985, 2nd in the 1987 competition, and 1st in the stallion competition category C. He also starred in dressage at Z-level and jumped nationally. He earned his “keur” predicate by siring many “ster” and “keur” mares, and approved stallions like Emilion, Farrington, and Glennridge. He has also sired many international show jumpers like VDL Jupiter, Jerome, SP Deka and What a Game. Wellington has also sired top dressage horses like Bolvorms Ceylon and Luxaflex. True to his pedigree, Figaro B shows exceptional talent for both dressage and show jumping. A powerful jumper, with beautiful movement Figaro B should shine in both arenas. Adding a “10” temperament to his talent and good looks, Figaro B should be an important stallion in the future. Figaro B is EVA negative and vaccinated.v

Comments:

For Play has tremendous ability as a performance horse and as a sire of performance horses. One breeding judge who knows For Pleasure very well mentioned that Both For Pleasure and For play were bred by the same breeder and also mentioned that not only does For Play have the Ability of his father but is an improvement through the quality of movement. For Play has had 100% conception rate on all first breedings to his US mares in 2008 from cooled and frozen semen including mares in their 20’s. For Play’s bloodlines and young performance record are enticing other stallion owners to include him in their breeding program. As a young horse in Germany he earned the privilege of qualifying for the Bundeschampionat. For Play had many wins as a young horse with the most recent at 1.40 meters timed as a 5 year old. 2007 was spent breeding back at his home farm outside of Hanover before we were given the opportunity to bring him to the US. His success is also blooming in Dressage with scores in the mid 70’s in USDF. For Play was imported at the end of 2007 and we expect him to join the national Grand Prix levels and USDF upper level dressage. Prior to being imported For Play was selected and won his 30 day stallion test in Germany. He won by such a margin that he was exempted from the conclusion of the 70 day test so he could stand at the Celle State stud and participate in the jumper breeding program. For Play has produced several outstanding foals in Germany. Out of his first foal crop he produced a licensed German Hanoverian stallion that stands and remains in Germany. He gives his foals his very typey head, jumping ability and scope as well as his lofty, suspended powerful dressage type gate. He has produced all colors including black out of a bay mare. I have seen a variety of his foals that move and jump like top hunters, jumpers and dressage horses. His temperament is a very important characteristic that will create top level amateur horses as well as very easy to ride professional winning mounts.

Comments:

Hexagon’s Louisville is simply breathtaking! A successful Grand Prix horse in Europe and now here for U.S. breeders, Louisville offers his outstanding character and exceptional rideability. In 2006, Louisville earned the USDF Amateur Grand Prix Horse of the Year award under owner Karin Reid Offield. In the Netherlands with Leunus Van Lieren, Louis was named to the Dutch B Team in 2004. In 2002, Louis was 3rd at GP at the CDN Kootwijk, The Netherlands. Louisville’s sire Burggraaf is widely known as one of the greatest showjumping sires of modern times. During his career as a breeding stallion, Burggraaf sired over 30 approved sons and numerable Ster and Keur mares. Burggraaf’s sire was the “Sire of the Century,” Landgraf I. Landgraf offers his impressive neck carriage, long sloping shoulder, beautiful face, strong bone and exceptional character to his grandson. Louisville’s dam Wenda, a Keur mare herself, produced several other notable offspring including Keur mare Kitty W (by Forum) who had IBOP scores of 9 for walk and 8.5 for trot , Keur mare Maddy W (by Epilot), and the approved AES stallion Pablo W (by Damiro), a Z-level jumper at 1.30 meters. Wenda’s sire Vesins, a KWPN approved thoroughbred, also sired the notable KWPN stallion, Sebastiaan. While in the Netherlands, Sebastiaan showjumped at the 1.60 level at the Indoor Friesland, Zuidlaren, and Amsterdam CSI’s and under Mary Alice Malone, he had a wonderful career at Grand Prix dressage. At the 2008 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses, a 2003 mare, Wonderella (ds. Rubiquil), earned highlight scores of 8.0 on her trot and 7.5 for canter in the Five Year Old Small Finals. Louis’ foals inherit his delightful temperament and athletic ability. Whether you compete in dressage or need a partner in the hunter/jumper ring, Hexagon’s Louisville can help you create the ideal athlete.

Comments:

“DER TRAKEHNER� will publish an article about Hirtentanz and his offspring. The article is based on the personal impression of Lars Gehrmann some of which is below. Hirtentanz R., geb. 2003, v. Axis u.d. Herzlani v. Kostolany Bes.: David Beattie/ USA, Deckst.: Hengst-u. Besamungsstation Geling, Dannau Hirtentanz who was often bred with jumping type mares, is passing on more beauty and impulsion than expected. This is an important characteristic after the first foal season of the American owned premium stallion which is located on the breeding station Geling. His foals have good proportions (you should watch that the mare has a good base of the neck and a long neck form). The high athletic measure has on top a good moving technique in trot and canter, with clear upward movement. When breeding to Hirtentaz, the canter quality often improved. 2008 Show record in Germany 5/29/08 at Bobs,Holstein in a class of 60 horses level A, 4 and 5 year olds, Hirtentanz finished 3rd with a score of 8.3. The winner was 8.5. In a second class on 5/29/08 at Bobs,Holstein in a class of 40 horses, level L, 5 year olds, Hirtentanz finished 1st with a score of 8.3. There were three approved Holsteiner stallions in this class. 2007 Show record in Germany Hirtentanz went to the bundesturnier in Hanover. This show was Trakehners only. Jumping class for 4 to 6 year old, 1st with score of 8.8 (88%) Jumping class for only 4 year old, 1st with score of 9.0 (90%) Holstein 2 times for training for Hanover all Holsteiners Jumping class A - 4 to 6 year old horses, 4th out of 60 horses Jumping class for 4 year old horses - 3rd out of 40 horses

Comments:

Hit Parade is a talented young stallion who has earned respect across the US with his impressive performances in the FEI Young Horse tests. In 2007 he qualified for his first trip to the US National Championships with owner/rider Sandy Burns-Gardner. Hit Parade finished in fourth position overall and was the highest placed five- year-old stallion. This season, Hit Parade has gained strength and expression and started off the year with scores in the 70’s at Second and Third Level. He was ranked first in the nation going into the 2008 Young Horse National Championships with an 8.34 average. Under the trying weather conditions, Hit Parade maintained his composure and again finished fourth at the finals and was still the highest placed stallion. Hit Parade is by the Sandro Hit son Show Star. Show Star was the Federal Champion at three years old, Reserve Champion at four years old, and finished second in the prestigious Nürnberg Burgpokal, a final for young Prix St. Georges horses. Show Star is proving himself in the breeding shed as well and has sired a number of Elite Auction offspring. Grandsire Sandro Hit won the Bundeschampionat and the FEI Young Horse World Championships as a 6-year-old. Sandro Hit’s influence is now felt across all major registries and his offspring are highly sought after. Esprina, the dam of Hit Parade, has also produced the licensed stallion Roman Nature. Roman Nature was the federal champion of 3-year-old stallions and was vice champion at the World Championships in the Netherlands for 5-year-old horses. The significant Rhineland sires, Ehrentusch, sire to Christine Traurig’s Olympic mount Etienne, and the former approval winner, Pasternak, are found on Hit Parade’s damline.

Comments:

Hot Shot was licensed by the American Sportpony Registry in 2005, achieving an overall score of 7.7 with an 8.2 score for gaits and elasticity. A Dutch rider visiting the US who rode him said “He is of the most special type sought in Europe, called the “Double Z” ponies, having the supreme talent to compete at the highest levels in both Jumping and Dressage.” Others have referred to Hot Shot as a superior young stallion whose imminent popularity will create a legacy for many generations to come. As a sire, his first offspring out of a 16.2h TB was awarded Inspection Site Champion by the AWR in 2008. Hot Shot is making his mark with many Champion Stallion, High Score Sportpony Awards, several USDF Year End Awards and 6th place in the 2007 USDF East Coast DSHB Championship Stallion Finals. At 2007 Dressage At Devon he placed 6th and 7th under saddle, as the ONLY Sportpony competing in these open classes against the full sized warmbloods. Also, in 2008 he finished in 4th place in the (first ever in the USA) Free Jumping Competition sponsored by the American Hanoverian Society, again as the only Sportpony, against Internationally bred Showjumping prospects at the maximum height of 4’3” (1.3 m). His sire is the 13.1h Welsh Section B stallion Red Hot Pepper, who produced many exceptional sport & hunter type ponies. His dam is the 15.1h AHS Mare Davigna MRF winner of several Hunter Breeding and USDF DSHB Champion and Grand Championships. His damline includes many FEI Dressage horses, an Olympic Jumper and the infamous USEF Hall of Fame Hunter & 5 time Horse Of The Year, Ruxton.

For a pony to compete successfully against horses and do so beyond average levels, something extra special is needed. It’s that extra and special that this American born son has to offer. “Pony Power” excellence at its best.

Comments:

Winner of over $250,000 in Grand Prix events. Justice sired the champion and res. Champion fillies of the entire 2008 BWP inspection tour. His colt Ixtapa ranked in the top five colts of the tour. Sire Line -- Justice is a direct son of Ramiro Z, famous worldwide as a sire of sporthorses. Ramiro excelled in Puissance up to 2.20m and participated in several successful Nations Cup outings. He was named “Sire of the Year” in 1992 and remains at the top of breeder indices in both jumping and dressage for many breed organizations today. In Holland, his sons Almiro, Armstrong, Bernstein, Dageraad, Damiro, Elmero and Zeoliet have all achieved fame. His daughter, the super-mare Ratina Z, is the dream of the showjumping world, winning both gold and silver at the Barcelona Olympics and the Volvo World Cup of 1993. Ramiro is a son of Raimond, whose greatest son was Ramiro himself but who also produced five other approved sons. Raimond’s sire, Ramzes, was a Polish Anglo-Arabian brought to Holstein as a competition horse, but was subsequently used by the Verband to put refinement on the heavy Holsteiner mares. Ramzes produced not only competition horses such as Remus, winner of individual silver and team gold at the Tokyo Olympics, and Mariano, winner of the World Dressage Championships, and the show jumper Retina, but he also has had a lasting influence in the performance horses of today. His son, Rigoletto, sold to Holland by Holstein, where he had a hugely successful career as a sire of exceptional jumping horses.

TITAN- (Justice/ Nimmerdor/ Pericles xx)

Dam’s Line – Justice’s dam, Ubenia, was a prolific dam in Holland, producing a family which gave rise to such successful showjumpers as Olien (Concorde). Ubenia is sired by Joost, producer of many internationally successful showjumpers, including the well-known stallion VIP and the top mares Esprite and Gadernmie.

LaMarque has Ladykiller bloodlines on both his sire side (Landgraf I) and his dam side (Lord). LaMarque’s dam, Goldkueste is by Lord Calando. Lord Calando’s most famous son is Lux Z. Lord Calando is a son of Lord. Lord was one of the foundation sires of the Holstein breed with 62 approved sons. LaMarque’s great grand dam, Perra, was the dam of Carthago Z as well as Lord Calando.

Comments:

LioCalyon, son of Liostro, is beautiful, athletic and well mannered. This athletic ability and big heart have led him to the winners circle many times. LioCalyon’s sire, Liostro, is the last approved son of Ladykiller. Liostro was the leading producer of money winners in the US in 2002. LioCalyon is related to Sapphire, Mark Watring’s Pan American Games Gold Medal Horse. On his dam’s side, Calypso II’s progeny show not only great jumping form, but wonderful rideability. Calypso II’s 18 stallion sons include Contendor, Coriolan, Colani and Chassur I and II, to name a few. His great grandsire is Cor de la Bryere whose incredible bascule and jumping ability is credited with improving the Holsteiner jumping style. “Corde” passes along strong nerves, intelligence and great willingness to perform. He established many sibling dynasties, Calypso I-V, Corrado I and II, and Colleto I-III. LioCalyon’s offspring have entered the show jumping arena and are following in their father’s footsteps. Peterbilt (2000 colt), in 2004 won the IJF West Coast 4 year-old Futurity, and in 2006 he was 2nd in the YJC West Coast 6 year-old Championships. His daughters, Provence (4th in the 2006 YJC West Coast 5 year old Championships) and Palancar are also exhibiting Lio’s love of jumping and big heart. He has young jumpers competing in New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. He also passes on his type, head and correct jumping form that he inherited from his forefathers.

Comments:

Son of the Champion Hanoverian stallion, Londonderry, Locksley I is the spitting image of his sire. In 2003 Locksley I was the second Reserve Champion of the Hanoverian Stallion Licensing and later placed third out of 42 stallions at his stallion performance test. Locksley I stood at the Hanoverian State Stud, Celle, before coming to the United States when imported by his new owners, Harmony Sporthorses, in 2007. At the October 2008 Hanoverian Licensing in Germany, a son of Locksley I, Lacoste, out of the mare West Virginia (Welser - Diplomat) was named to the Premium ring and will attend 2009’s Stallion Performance Test as a 3 year old. Locksley I offers North American breeders abundant genetic value, an intelligent and generous character, along with an elegant influence that lends to the production of today’s modern Hanoverian.

For the jumper breeder, this young stallion performed brilliantly in his 100-day test in 2007. His scores were high in both jumping and dressage to finish 6th overall with a score of 122.15. Lougheed carries the movement, character, and quality of his impeccable pedigree. His results were in keeping with the “first rank’ results of his sire and dam sire in their respective 100-day stallion tests. For the breeder focused on pedigree and performance, Lougheed merits serious consideration.

Ocordo is by the outstanding sire Olympic Concorde, who, guided by Jos Lansink, won the Grand Prix at Aachen and the Dutch National Championships, among many other successes. Concorde is himself by in incomparable Voltaire, one of the highest ranking sires among sporthorses worldwide for the past decade. Ocordo’s dam, Katosca, is a full sister to another Aachen winner, Osta Carpets Carrera, who is today owned by the studbook La Silla. Great jumping genetics combine in Ocordo, a beautiful and capable stallion of enormous personality and charisma. Imported as a six year old and brought up carefully through the levels, Ocordo began showing in Grand Prix and international competitions in the last several years. He exhibits great interest in his work, careful and bold on course, and demonstrates his tremendous scope in the most difficult of combinations. This exciting stallion, who is really just at the beginning of what promises to be a very triumphant career, offers a pedigree crammed with proven jumping abilities backed up by very solid and serious show records among many family members, a resume to be seriously considered for those looking to produce highly competitive prospects.

In addition, he was the most money accruing horse in the Wachovia Securities Rider Challenge in Chicago Illinois. On Line is bred to perform. Currently jumping the Grand Prix level, On Line’s amazing jumping technique can be directly attributed to his impressive bloodlines. On Line embodies all the best and most influential bloodlines that Europe has to offer. His sire Concorde is a decendent of the famous, “keur” and “preferent” stallion Voltaire. His dam, the ‘prestatie’ mare Flyer, is by the legendary Marco Polo, one of the most influential Dutch stallions in breeding and jumping mares with representatives such as Irco Polo, Pybalia, Marius, Orpheus, Mr LA, Pierrot and Recruut. Flyer also produced at least 6 international jumpers. Olympic Concorde was the spectacular winner of the 1990 National Stallion Champions. In the year 2001 he was the youngest stallion ever to be awarded “preferent”, due to his endless list of national and international offspring. In 2002, Olympic Concorde was the number one producer of show jumpers by money won in the US with his offspring earning nearly $200,000 in 2002 on the American show jumping circuit. That same year, his sire, Voltaire was named the number one hunter producer in the US. In 2003 Olympic Concorde was named Horse of the Year in Holland and was the leading jumping sire in the US. He is also listed in the top ten for show jumper stallions world wide. Over the past decade Concorde has produced over 100 offspring competing nationally and internationally at 1.40-1.60. On Line’s dam’s sire Argentinus is the most influential son of the Hanoverian stallion, Argentan I. Argentinus’ dam is by Duden II who was highly esteemed as a producer of top quality performance horses and wonderful broodmares. In 1996, Argentinus was the youngest millionaire among Germany’s top sires and is still regarded as amongst the most successful living Stallions in Germany. On Line’s progeny are coming 8 in 2009. He passes down his long line of influential and performance blood to his offspring, all of which show scope, impressive technique, strong movement, and super dispositions.

Otschag is that rare combination of sheer beauty, intelligence, exemplary character and willing desire to work and please. His top class movement is uphill from the very first step. Otschag transfers an exceptional combination of top Olympic and champion performance bloodlines. Top foundation Hanoverian lines like Grenadier, Duellant through Duo, Abglanz through Axtzepter, and Erno from who Gauguin de Lully descends are combined with the same famous post-war bloodlines which produced Almox Prints J, Pepel, Biotop, Partout, Peron, Rusty, Abdullah, and others through his sire line including Hockey (produced over 40 Grand Prix and jumping horses), Ossian, Pilger, Polarstern, Hrisolit (Chrysolith) and Welt. At his approvals, he ranked ELITE with an overall mark of 9. Head 9/Neck/8/ Withers, shoulders, breast 8/Back 9/ Croup 8/ Front legs 8/ Back legs 7/ Walk 8/ Trot 9/ Canter 9. “Very typical (Russian) Hanoverian stallion with very good head and neck, round, barrel-shaped breast, good top line, wide croup. Body is based on strong foundation. Otschag is such a joy to ride, very light and responsive and easy for his amateur owner. This special genetic material should be viewed as a genetic resource to leverage with many types of mares. He has crossed very well on Trakehner, Latvian, Danish Warmblood and Thoroughbred mares. He has also produced excellent sporthorse prospects from quality Paint and Quarter Horse mares. His first foals were born in March of 2004. Many can be seen and ridden at Carson Farm in Burleson, Texas.

Rhythm & Blues is a gorgeous TRUE BLACK Dutch Warmblood stallion. R&B was born on Easter Sunday in 1998. In 2001 he was granted Star status at his Dutch keuring in Holland & in 2002 R&B completed his stallion performance testing in Prussendorf, Germany with excellent scores. He received 9’s in “Character”, “Ability to Work”, and “Cross Country Jumping” and 8.33 in “Free Jumping”. In 2006 he was given a 9.0 for his “Canter” at the RPSI Stallion inspection. Just as his sire Ferro and damsire Argus, R&B excels in both jumping and dressage. His sire Ferro started his show career as a successful jumper and then settled into dressage; R&B is now doing the same. He is a talented, skillful and scopey jumper with three good gaits and a light front/powerful hind for dressage. R&B inherited his sire’s suppleness, uphill movement, & natural ability for lateral work. Ferro is known for passing on his powerful hindquarters (& his ability to “sit”) and strong compact frame. R&B began his performance career with Three-Day Eventing. As a 5 yr old R&B was undefeated in the Young Horse competitions in Australia. In June 2005 R&B started a successful Jumper career at level 5& 6 Jumpers. After wining numerous championships as a jumper, R&B is now in full dressage training & showing at PSG. Please see website for show info and training updates. R&B foals are very correct, showing uniformity in their attractively formed heads, short well muscled backs, and excellent loin connections & hind ends. Offspring are beautifully harmonious & solid in build, yet refined. Just as their sire, they show great aptitude for both Jumping and Dressage. Offspring show athleticism and brilliant, smooth movement in all three gaits. R&B offspring have great presence & intelligence and are eager to please. Multiple GOV Premium foals. Excellent sire for loin & hind end improvement, shortening back/compaction of frame of long backed mares, refinement of heavier types. Crosses well with TB type mares too. Please see website for more info.

Comments:

Recently imported from Denmark, Richman has established himself in Europe with a successful career as a breeding stallion and an FEI dressage competitor. Richman is a lovely type with gaits, athletic ability, and bloodlines to produce for the hunter/jumper ring as well as FEI dressage. Richman is the perfect example of the modern type warmblood stallion. He possesses elegance without sacrificing substance, has excellent conformation including a beautiful head and eye, and tops it off with a great work ethic and disposition. Richman produces excellent offspring with talent for both dressage and jumping. Mantovani, Richman’s sire, is a son of the internationally prominent French stallion Quattro (Qredo Paul Strasbourg - Galoubet A - Alme). His dam, Brieka, also delivered, in conjunction with Voltaire, other approved stallions including Iron and Guido. Gelderse from this famous family also produced the approved KWPN stallions Boston , Dublin and Obrecht. Mantovani stands out for his beautiful exterior and fantastic movements. There are already 5 promising dressage talents exported. Mantovani is a very strong producer in both dressage and jumping. He is an all-rounder par excellence. Quattro, Richman’s grandsire, is a double talent as shown by the official breeding index, where he scores 144 in jumping (95% security) and 125 in dressage (96% security). Quattro remarkably had two offspring qualified for the Olympics in Athens 2004; Quando Quando for dressage and Oliver Q for jumping! Quicksilber won the gold medal at Lanaken in 2005 with the Spanish rider Manuel Fernandeze Saro and Suzie Quattro with Luciana Diniz and Quanta Costa from Rolf-Goran Bengtsson both jumped successfully in 2005.

Rodioso completed his 100 days test in 1999 and was licensed by the German Oldenburg Verband. He earned a Class I license and was given a “10” on character and a “9” on conformation and an “8” on temperament. Rodioso’s sire Rohdiamant was German State champion at age four and was rated among the top 5 dressage horses in the world when he was competing at Grand Prix with Olympic Medallist Lisa Wilcox. Rohdiamant traces his dam’s line back to Inschallah, the Anglo-Arab from the Vorweck Stud. Rodioso’s grand sire is the great Rubinstein I. His dam is by Furioso II, one of the most influential warmblood sires ever. Rodioso’s in-hand show record is excellent. Imported in 2001 he was named Grand Champion Stallion at Devon that year. In 2005 he was Grand Champion Stallion for the Cosequin/USDF Northwest Series Sporthorse Breeding and he placed 4th nationally in the USDF Sporthorse Breeding Horse of the Year with a score of 81.25%.

Comments:

Rolling Stone is by the late “Rubenstein I” who has sired such well-known competitors as “Relevant”, “Rhodiamant”, and “Royal Diamond.” Rolling Stone’s damsire, “Figaro,” sired the dams of such notable mounts as Robert Dover’s “Ranier” and Isabell Werth’s “Aleppo” just to name a few. In 2002, at Dressage at Lexington, Rolling Stone was the Champion Stallion in hand and under saddle. He was also the winner of the Materiale class, the Oldenburg IBC class and Reserve Champion of the entire show! Rolling Stone returned to the show ring in 2005 at the Pinehurst Dressage Show. He went four for four, winning every class entered at Second Level with scores in the mid to high 60%s with trainer/rider Stacey Schettkoe Hastings. In the next three years of training with Stacey, Rolling Stone has gone from Second level to Grand Prix. He was the NCDCTA Horse of the Year at Third level, and in 2007 won the GAIG/USDF Region 1 Championships at I-11. In 2008 he qualified for the regional championships in Grand Prix and was the Grand Prix Reserve Champion at the BLM Championships.

Rolling Stone’s offspring have proven to be phenomenal with a 90% premium rate. His progeny are long legged and short coupled with generous, flowing movement and “picture perfect” conformation. Rolling Stone foals can be recognized by the above traits as well as their loving, inquisitive and playful temperaments. NC Breeder Deb Malinowski’s Rolling Stone filly was Reserve Champion Region One at Training Level against a field of 33 horses and with a median score of 68.8%. Negative & vaccinated yearly.

Comments:

Rousseau stepped into the spotlight at the 2001 KPWN Stallion Licensing at Den Bosch, where he was named to the Championship Ring and was top sale at the KWPN Select Sale. He entered sport as the 2002 PAVO Cup Champion, 2003 PAVO Cup Res. Champion, and 2003 KWPN Stallion Show Champion. Rousseau’s Silver Medal finish at the 2003 FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Horses helped earned Rousseau lifetime licensing in Hanover, Oldenburg, and Westphalia, increasing his access throughout Germany. At an early age, Rousseau clearly established himself as a leading sire and is represented by Champion sons and offspring around the world. In 2007, Rousseau carried the highest dressage index in the Dutch breed with 181 points. Rousseau’s Dutch sons Wamberto, Ampere (nee: Ajong), and Blue Hors Zack (nee: Zagreb) were each hailed as KWPN Stallion Licensing Champions in 2006, 2007, and 2008 - a feat never before achieved by one sire. In 2007, Wamberto (ds. Voltaire) earned the highest scores ever at his U.S. 100- Day Stallion Performance test. Ampere (ds. Flemmingh) also earned the highest dressage score in history for his KWPN Stallion Performance Test. Blue Hors Zack (ds. Jazz) was the highest selling young stallion ever at the KWPN Select Sale at 430,000 euros to Blue Hors of Denmark. Zack placed 3rd in the Danish Young Horse Championships in 2008. Out of Rousseau’s first German foal crop, his son Fiorano (ds. Rotspon) was titled Premium at the 2007 VhW licensing and went on to win his 70-Day Performance Test while Furst Rousseau (ds. Weltmeyer) concluded his Performance Test 3rd of 29. Furst Rousseau now stands at Celle, the Hannoverian State Stud. Rousseau has also produced numerous Champion ster mares and each year has top mares in the National Mare Show in Holland: ‘05 - Violita (ds. Krack C), ‘06 - Wodora (ds.

Comments:

Royal Crusade is a promising son of the renowned stallion Routinier, who was ridden by dressage star Steffen Peters. Routinier’s sire Rohdiamont was marvelously successful at Grand Prix level dressage under Olympian Lisa Wilcox. With more than 20 licensed sons in breeding, Rohdiamont belongs to the most influential sons of Rubinstein I. Routinier’s damline is one of the best in Oldenburg, with more than 8 approved stallions. Royal Crusade’s dam’s pedigree is equally impressive with showjumping bloodlines. His dam is a granddaughter of the outstanding legendary Cor de la Bryere, whose offspring have an excellent reputation in the international scene, such as show jumping Olympic champions Classic Touch, Calvaro and Corrado. His dam also contributes a significant amount of Thoroughbred blood, which is desirable for adding the stamina and endurance necessary for competition.

To know this wonderful stallion is to love him. His personality is friendly and affectionate and he has a great mind. He enjoys his work and learns exercises quickly. He is trail ridden weekly, and his daily dressage training is in an outside dressage ring with neither a fence nor wall. He is brave and confident even when ridden in extreme weather conditions, such as gusty winds, swirling snow, and the dusk of night -- and this was a 3- and 4-year-old stallion! He has been ridden in dressage clinics with J. Ashton Moore and Christine Traurig. He is currently working at first/second Level and is starting his jumping career under saddle. He has free jumped to 4’9”.

Foal by Royal Crusade

Royal Crusade has qualifed for the USDF Region 2 Breeders Championship 3 times and finished among the top 4 regionally in the 4-Years-and-Older division. In 2008 he finished in the top 10 nationally for his USDF Materiale division and he ranked 7th for USDF Stallions In Hand. He has already produced a premium filly.

Comments:

A most promising dark colored stallion by the World Champion in dressage, Sandro Hit, who is probably the most popular sire in the world right now because of his outstanding offspring. His daughter, Poetin, caused a Bundeschampion in dressage, sold for 2.5 million Euro at the PSI auction and is just the tip of his iceberg of exclusive offspring. Sagnol is a talented young dressage sire of caliber with three perfect gaits. He comes from the famous Holstein mare line 776, the legendary Ramiro line that never ceases to produce great highlights such as the sires Acorado, Calvados, Cortino, Lordanos or Rouletto. A countless number of his offspring are active in top-level sport. What more can be said about his famous dam’s sire, Landadel? Even after his death, his sons and daughters continue to leave a permanent mark on Oldenburg sport horse breeding. The Holstein sires, Fantast and Colt in particular, ensure a willingness to perform and the Thoroughbred stallions, Frivol xx, Cottage Son xx and Anblick xx add refinement and toughness to his pedigree. Sagnol is a beautiful modern type stallion, with three super gaits. He is a wonderful addition to the NA stallion base, and an exciting cross for a wide variety of mares. His first foal crop born in 2005, in Germany was very well received. Sagnol’s first North American born foals arrived in 2007, and this resulted in many premium foals, including San Bella rated premium by the Oldenburg Verband, site champion filly and declared as “Elite Auction Quality Foal”. Sagnol’s foal’s are also proving to be in demand by FEI rider’s looking for their top horse. Sagnol is siring very elegant foals, with beautiful heads and necks, correct conformation, and very elastic movement. In 2007 Sagnol also became of one the very few outside stallions ever to be approved by the American Holsteiner Horse Association, he received 51 bonits. Sagnol is a sire for the future.

Comments:

Sam Steele is a son of the impressive stallion Sherlock Holmes who himself placed second in his performance test out of 43 stallions – earning the high scores of 141.14 for rideability and 139.76 for jumping. His dam, States Premium mare Eskalade, produced three licensed colts. Sherlock Holmes produced eight licensed colts , 40 States Premium mares and 50 auction horses. Sherlock Holmes offspring, like himself, are multitalented for dressage and jumping, and he produces impressive horses with extravagant movement. Sam Steele inherited these traits and passes them on to his offspring. Many have been chosen Champion foals at their inspection, and two of his daughters placed first and second for the Hartwig Prize (for highest scoring young North American-bred mares). Others are starting to compete successfully and are receiving much attention, such as Sundance Kid who placed 2nd in the Pre-Greens in Ontario for 2008 and 3rd in the Adult Amateur Division.

On the performance side Sam has the low profile and steady way of going of a hunter, and is well-balanced, bold and scopey with the instincts of a more experienced horse. He can be recommended as a producer of quality Hunters as well as Dressage and Jumper types.

Comments:

Walkabout is an outstanding example of the modern sporthorse. Although big, he has an airy, light way of moving. His walk is ground covering, yet swinging and relaxed. The trot has lovely reach and suspension, and the canter is amazing - huge and lofty, yet balanced. Walkabout is incredibly elastic - lateral work has been easy for him. He is light in the hand, and beautifully responsive to the leg. Although never put in jump training, a few free jumping sessions showed Walkabout to be very talented and bold over fences. In 2006 Walkabout made his debut at training level after an 8 month lay up due to a stall injury. Most of his scores were in the 70%’s, with 1 score of 80%. He was the Oregon Dressage Society T.L. Champion, winning both tests of the championship class. Walkabout has improved every mare he has bred. His first foal, Boomerang QRF,is out of a TB mare, and has had a phenomenal show career already. As a yearling he was the AWS national gold medalist yearling colt in hand, as a 2 year old he was the silver medalist 2y.o. colt in hand, and now as a 3 y.o. we’re waiting for year end results - but are confident he’ll place well - he won 5 of 6 3y.o. colts and geldings classes, and 3 colt championships. Boomer and Walkabout’s other offspring all have wonderful temperaments - calm and willing, easy to work with. Each surpasses its dam in conformation and movement. While superior movement is desirable, for most riders a good mind and willing attitude are most important in their mounts. Walkabout was bred, raised, trained, and shown by his owner - an older, physically handicapped woman. He is proof that one can have it all - outstanding, awe inspiring gaits, combined with a kind and giving nature.

Due to a tendon injury, Walkabout has been sidelined from work and competition. We’re hoping he can make a comeback in 2010. Look for his first foal crop to show under saddle in 2009 - we are planning on campaigning Boomerang QRF at training level. Please check our wesite, or feel free to call for more info.

Waterford’s Sire, Consul, is the USEF Top Ranked Jumper Sire for 2004 and has sired the well known, Judgement ISF. Nimmerdor is one of the leading producers of Jumpers in Holland as well as being high on the index for producing Dressage horses. His Dam, Juventafee, is out of the Legendary Farmer (by Voltaire) who was vice champion at the National Show Jumping Championships 4 years old in The Netherlands and he was Champion of the Benelux. Farmer was bred by the well known Keur Preferent stallion Voltaire. Farmer has a great track record in both jumping and dressage. Juventafee was imported from Holland after competing in the Level 6-7 jumpers and after earning her KEUR Status with the KWPN. Waterford earned first premium along with his 2007 offspring at the 2007 AWR inspection. Waterford started showing in the pre green hunters in 2008 and earned top ribbons at each show. Waterford’s temperament is well suited for many mares. He is very brave to the jumps and has a huge stride. He is also very gentle, quiet and easy to work with. His breeding background also makes him suitable as a dressage stallion. His movement is athletic and he is naturally balanced. His full brother at the age of 4 is already showing as an excellent dressage horse.

Wellesley is a son of Windswept Farm’s foundation stallion World Cup IV. This sire line, going back through Woermann and Wohler, has produced outstanding horses with World Cup IV, Wenzel I, Weltmeyer, Wolkenstein II and Warkant to name a few. Wellesley combines his father’s beautiful temperament and powerful appearance and his dam’s elegance and lightness. He is a very attractive and trainable horse, not only has he talent for dressage, but he is also a scopey and talented jumper. His dam, Esplanade, produced numerous successful show horses both for the dressage and hunter ring. Wellesley’s offspring have been above expectations, highly trainable and attractive horses with lots of athletic ability and a wonderful work ethic. So far each one of them has shown talent for dressage and jumping. His first son Wainright and his brother Waterloo are already successful in the hunter ring, and daughter EM Wildflower, was a high-scoring mare in her MPT (7/8/8/8 and 8/9 for jumping).

Another colt, Wolfe, has been Grand Champion at several breed shows, and is now successfully competed on the U.S. Hunter circuit. Two daughters, Waltzing Mathilda (2005) and Wendy Lady (2007) were both Champion Fillies at their AHS inspections. Three of his daughters placed first (8.0) and second (tie 7.83) at the 2008 AHS inspection. With his exceptional movement and good jumping ability, Wellesley’s foals, now just beginning their young careers, have begun to dominate in the hunter ring.

Winner of the 100-day stallion testing in Germany with 140 points! Although he is a fantastic mover, he also received a 9 on jumping. In 2005, Wild Dance was Reserve Champion at the Nurnberger Burgpokal Finals. This is the finale of a prestigious show circuit in Germany for seven to nine year dressage horses competing at Prix St. Georges. Wild Dance and Hubertus Schmidt had the highest qualifying scores, routinely scoring above 75%. Wild Dance is nothing short of breathtaking. With elastic movement, natural balance and self-carriage, he is a dream. He also placed fourth in the German National Championship as a young horse. Wild Dance is by one of the best Weltmeyer sons, Wolkenstein II out of a St. Pr. mare by Matcho AA. This bloodline combination has proven exceptional. Wolkenstein II was the winner of his stallion performance testing and went on to sire 41 licensed sons. Offspring Highlights 2007 Colt Windsor VT champion of his inspection. Top colt ISR/Old NA 2007

Following his 100-Day Test in Germany, Wolkenglanz was stationed at Stallion Station Jens Meyer, where his dressage training started. He was Champion or Reserve Champion at many open competitions scoring 9’s on rideability and gaits in 1999 and 2000. After two successful showing and breeding seasons, he was imported into the USA where he went straight into the breeding shed. His training later resumed with Canadian Dressage Team member Tom Dvorak until an unfortunate injury ended his performance career. Although, his success as a performance horse was halted, his success continues in the breeding shed. His offspring consistently inherit his wonderful temperament, impressive gaits, correct conformation and exceptional rideability and trainability. Congratulations to Heather Ferguson and Wolkenschein 2008 USDF Reg.2 Open Training Level Champions and to Robyn Weston and Willow RW, 2008 USDF Reg.2 3rd Level Jr/YR Champions and 2008 USDF All Breeds Awards (American Han.) 3rd Level Jr/YR Champions.

Bolero has been called a guarantee for producing suspension and elasticity of gaits, rideability and nobility. “Wolkenglanz himself reflects Bolero.

WONDERBOY was approved as a BWP stallion in 2002. In 2008 he obtained his BWP lifetime breeding license in VA, USA. On August 2008 he was also approved as an ISR Oldenburg stallion. At the Hill Top Farm inspection in MD., 7 stallions were presented and Wonderboy got the highest jumping index and the second highest dressage index. As a 4-year-old he started competing in France, then he was exported to Chile in mid 2004. Later, the same year, he was exported to Argentina where he competed in show jumping and also bred at 5 well-known sport horse farms. In 2006, at the early age of 7, started competing in 1.50 m classes. Finished 2nd. at a CSIO – W **** and in December 2006 obtained the individual bronze medal at the Argentinean National Championship, ending the last day at 1.60 m, jumping in an indoor. In January 2007 Wonderboy was exported to the US and competed successfully in FL, VA, KY, NJ, and NY. In June, he was second (by 1.5 sec. in the jump-off) in the Amateur Owner Grand Prix at Beacon Hill, NJ. In November 2008, he was exported to Ecuador (South America) for 2 months to develop the BWP breeding in this country.

absatz Absatz by Louisa Zai

W

hen learning your A-to-Z’s in sporthorse breeding, it’s best to begin with Absatz. One of the great foundation sires of the modern Hanoverian, Absatz is known as the “type” improver. This tribute understates the remarkable impact that Absatz has had on the Hanoverian breed. Indeed he did improve the type of the Hanoverian, enabling it to quickly adapt to a changing marketplace. Absatz also left a legacy of horses who have it all: form and function, with success in dressage and jumping. After the First World War, Hanoverian breeders focused on producing bigger boned, hardy, powerful, brave horses who could serve in battle and on the farm. Despite this trend toward increasing their substance, the good riding horse qualities of the Hanoverian endured. When the Second World War ended, Germany was faced with a huge surplus of horses. The military demand had ceased and the agricultural and industrial markets were becoming mechanized. The Hanoverian breed needed to find a new niche, and quickly.

Absatz cannot be ignored as the damsire of the incomparable Weltmeyer. Renowned for his spectacular paces, Weltmeyer has sired more than 70 approved stallions and his daughters are highly sought for their contributions as broodmares. Ludwig Christman, Breeding Director of the Hanoverian Verband, said of Weltmeyer, “He is one of those stallions that are born only rarely – Absatz, Bolero, Weltmeyer they leave their mark on the offspring, they are timeless. It is just not possible to reproduce such a stallion, you can try to breed them, but everything has to click and fit for it to happen.” 3 The Absatz sons Akzent I and Akzent II are sought after in both dressage and jumper pedigrees. Akzent II has a strong influence in Dressage through his grandson De Niro, recently crowned Hanoverian Stallion of the

Out of 30,000 registered broodmares in the stud book in 1948, there remained in 1963 at total of 6500, while the number of active stallions fell from 539 to 149! On the other hand the recession actually had a therapeutic effect in that drastic selection procedures had to be adopted, and consequently only the very best of the stock which remained were used for breeding. 1 Absatz provided right mix of refinement, beauty and athleticism at the right time to help convert the Hanoverian into a desirable sporthorse. His sire Abglanz, a royally bred Trakehner, had already proven to be a good influence on the Hanoverian mare base. Absatz’ dam Landmoor herself descended from refining blood. Her great grandsire was the highly regarded Thoroughbred Lancelot and her dam came from the Shagya Arabian line. Born in 1960, Absatz stood at stud from 1964 until his death in 1982. He reportedly won his licensing, but he did not complete his performance test due to an injury. Fortunately, the commission was sufficiently impressed, and approved him anyway. Absatz sired more than forty approved stallions and 82 states premium mares. The Selected Stallions of Germany yearbook canonized his influence with the following description: Absatz gave the modern Hanoverian the characteristic and incomparable ‘Absatz type,’ a noble head with an impressive face, ideal neck and saddle position, light-footed paces, combined with a good shoulder. 2 Twenty-seven years after his death, Absatz’ influence continues to thrive. In dressage

Year for 2008 (Weltmeyer earned this title in 1998). De Niro has been a leading sire of FEI Young Horse World Qualifiers and himself was trained to Grand Prix by the age of seven. The Absatz son Argentan (Hanoverian Stalllion of the Year for 1994) and his son Argentinus sustain the A-line for jumpers, both in international competition (siring horses such as Aramis, who won the World Cup in jumping) and in the breeding shed. The influence of many of the old refining sires is being preserved through only the mare families. Not so for Absatz, even at the 2008 Hanoverian stallion licensing, two Argentinus sons were presented for approval in the jumper ring. The Absatz versatility will not be compartmentalized either. For example, Argentinus sired Heike Kemmer’s Albano and Isabell Werth’s Grand Prix horse Amaretto (sadly lost to colic). Absatz struck a chord with American breeders too. His influence in the U.S. began in January of 1966, with the arrival of a young chestnut colt. Aptly named Abundance, this youngster grew up to become one of the first Hanoverian

stallions to stand in the U.S. The colt was the fruit of a long search by Alyosius Steiert to find a horse like a favorite mare he had once owned. A cross-bred from calvary remount lines, she had been unbeatable as his show jumper. While on a trip to visit his son Anthony (stationed in Germany at the time) he purchased the Hanoverian colt for $780. Anthony remembers, “After seeing Absatz in the stallion parade, Dad felt pretty confident in his investment.” Steiert was convinced that a Hanoverian stallion would be perfect for crossing with American Thoroughbred mares. When the colt arrived at the airport, Steiert picked him up himself and brought him home in the back of his canopied F-150 truck! Steiert campaigned Abundance successfully on the hunter jumper circuit, while Anne Rawles trained him successfully in dressage, earning a spot on the USET long list. Steiert also foxhunted and drove his stallion. As a sire, Abundance proved just as versatile. For example, the eventer Aachen earned the 1985 USCTA Horse of the Year at the Advanced level, and jumper Jackie Blue represented Canada on their 1984 Olympic Team. The beauty and style of the Absatz type is also illustrated by the success of his descendants in the U.S. Hunter competitions. For example, the Abundance son Ruxton won the AHSA (now USEA) Working Hunter Horse of the Year title a record five times! Alesi (aka Shine) by Akzent II, winner of multiple major Hunter Championships at prestigious events such as Del Mar, now stands in Texas. The Abundance son Absolute, and grandson Gold Luck are still standing at stud today. Andric, a rare living son of Absatz standing California, is popular as both as a dressage and Hunter sire. “Absatz was one of the most famous Hanoverians in his time, if not of all time,” declared the German Hanoverian Verband. 4 With so many successful Absatz offspring carrying on his legacy, it’s safe to say that the Absatz era is still in its zenith. In addition to the references cited, the author would like to express thanks to all who helped with this article. Special appreciation goes to Antony Steiert for sharing the remarkable story of his father Alyosius Steiert and Abundance. 1 Von Stenglin, Christian Freiherr, The Hanoverian, Stuttgart/London, 1983
