Zucht 

The secret of success ist the constancy of the aim

B. Franklin

 

 

 
There is no standstill in breeding but only continuous progress. The striving for quality does not allow any compromise. So we have put our yardstick very high and have made it our aim to breed modern horses of a quality that ranges high above the average and with an extraordinary talent for all disciplines. We insist on brood mares only of the best blood lines, that are very true to type and show that extraordinary range of movements that is expected from modern horses. We also select them according to fertility which we think especially important also in view of the later use of their offspring in breeding. Nearly always, selected matches with top sires have led to the desired success and have produced a great number of promising youngsters.

 

Some of the best fillies remain in our possession and will be used for breeding again, and thus ensure that the genes of the new and modern sires of dressage horses are contributed again and again.

 

Our adjoining extensive pastures and the careful observation of the horses by our trained personnel in the summer and daily exercise combined with a healthy diet during the winter months in the stables, guarantee an optimum and healthy rearing of our foals and young horses.


The close personal contact with our horses from the moment they are born until they receive their first schooling and even beyond that time, creates an atmosphere of trust which is the precondition for a successful start with a new owner.
 

 

A carefree youth without bad or frightening experiences is the guarantee for a good-natured and balanced nervous disposition of the horse and the basis for its cooperation with the rider: The first and foremost condition for its successful use in sport.

 

Our stock of brood mares also includes more traditional Hanoverian blood lines as are represented by Grenadier with the precious blood of Valentino xx or Lehnsherr, that goes back to the well proven bloodline of Löwe xx. We also have more modern lines such as Warkant, Weltmeyer, Weyden, Wolkenstein II, Ritual, Regazzoni and, last but not least, the blood line of Donnerhall via Diorello and De Niro.

 

Our brood mares include state premium mares, winners of classes and shows, dams of approved stallions and champions. Each year they give birth to a new generation of promising offspring.

As there are so many of them we would like to mention just three of them, who have established a firm position in our breeding.

 

 

Apart from other sport horses she produced GOLDEN GO by Goldfever, who was born in 1995.


This highly talented dressage horse is still in our possession and is being trained by Rudolf Zeilinger.

State premium mare GENUA by Grenadier out of Waldrun by Waidmannsdank xx-Ferdinand-Faschist II, entered in the Brood Mare Register D, she was a two-time class winner "Breeding programme of Hanoverian Jumping Horses". Also this mare produced very successful descendants who excelled both in breeding (state premium mares) and in sport, with a potential both for jumping and for dressage.

 

Among them are the jumping horses COOL-MAN (l.), winner of jumping competitions of the advanced class and CROCKET 11 (r.) - both sired by Calypso II - under their rider Joachim Winter, as well as a son of Wittinger, born in 1995, who is still in training with us.

 

 

 
His three basic paces are more than outstanding and hewill develop into a top class dressage horse.
 

WARKANTE sired by Warkant out of Neigung by Nevado xx - Absatz- Abermals, dam of excellent offspring. Among others she produced in 1997 the WINNER OF THE SHOW, a colt by Hohenstein, both in Luhmühlen and on Klosterhof Medingen. In the same year this colt took part in the first Championship of Hanoverian Foals and achieved a good fourth rank in his group.

 

 

 

 

In 1999 another son of Warkante was extremely successful: This time it was DER CHAMP, a colt sired by De Niro which became the much admired CHAMPION of what is the breeders' highlight of the German Championships: The second Championships of Hanoverian Foals in Verden.
