E.H. Herzensdieb

Trakehner Licensing Champion in Germany. Proven Dressage Competitor & Sire.
At his Trakehner Licensing, Herzensdieb was awarded Champion Stallion. “This stallion is not just moving, but dancing,” was the enthusiastic comment. Trakehner Verband Breeding Manager Lars Gehrmann added, “Endowed with the aura of something special, this stallion embodies the classical Trakehner upgrader type.” He was Reserve Champion of his 70-Day Test scoring above champions from Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Westfalen and Holsteiner licensings. He won the Trakehner Championship for 3-year-old stallions, qualified for the Bundeschampionat for 6-year-old dressage horses and then trained up to the Advanced Level.

Sire Tambour won his stallion licensing and was highly successful in both advanced level dressage and jumping. He then went on to become a successful sire producing auction horses, Premium mares and successful sport horses. Herzensdieb’s dam, St.Pr./El.St. Herzensfreude, scored 9.11 at her Mare Performance Test and was successful in dressage competition. Granddam, SPS Herzenslust, Champion Mare in Schleswig-Holstein, won her Mare Performance Test. This noted damline has produced several licensed stallions, successful dressage horses and highly awarded mares.

Herzensdieb has an FN breeding value dressage of 142 points and is in the top 10% of German dressage sires. He was honored with the prestigious Elite Hengst title (E.H.) by the Trakehner Verband. Breeders comment Herzensdieb stamps his offspring with his elegant type, friendly personality and exceptional rideability. Many daughters are revered in Germany.

Licensed son Herzenswunsch was Champion of Southern Germany, Horse of the Year and multiple Bundeschampionat finalist.
