Escher Hanoverian Stallion
Escher DFEN

Escher is a 16.2hh Hanoverian stallion who epitomizes the modern type of sport horse. He is a smooth, correct, and very balanced young horse. He is a source of Thoroughbred blood for breeders looking to add that increasingly important element to their breeding programs. In 2018 Escher was the only 3 year old North American stallion licensed by the American Hanoverian Society (AHS). He was very well received at his licensing and rewarded with terrific scores. He received a 9 for “Type and Masculinity.” He also scored a 9 for neck and 8’s for saddle position, frame, foreleg, conformation, and importantly canter, jumping ability, and overall impression. One Hanoverian judge commented that Escher was a stallion he would use in his own program.

Escher is a natural choice for the jumper mare, especially for those who would like to continue a desirable type. Both of Escher’s parents are in the AHS Jumper Breeding Program (JBP). Escher is by the legendary stallion Escudo II who maintained the highest riding type of Hanoverians worldwide for 8 consecutive years. Escher’s genetics combine the multi talent, strong top line, and beauty of Escudo II with similar traits in addition lightness and legginess from the dam side.

Escher’s dam is the outstanding Thoroughbred mare Apt to Please (by Pleasant Tap), she was a winner of her AHS Inspection, and completed her Mare Performance Test (MPT) easily earning entry into the JBP. Dam, Apt to Please was also a successful event horse. With her first two Hanoverian foals she has already produced an Elite mare candidate and now a licensed stallion. Escher’s 4 year old full sibling sister, Eleanor won the 2017 Hartwig Trophy. The Hartwig Prize is awarded to the 3yo or 4yo Hanoverian mare with the highest combined inspection and Mare Performance Test scores during the AHS tour. She is the 2018 recipient of The Engler-Friedlaender Memorial Trophy which is awarded to the Hanoverian mare with the highest Hanoverian mare performance test score. Because of her high jumping scores, Eleanor was accepted in the AHS Jumper Breeding Program and Fall 2018 Eleanor qualified for the United States Eventing Association (USEA) 4yo Young Event Horse Championships in her first show ever. Several weeks later she took the USEA championship course brilliantly.

Escher will be showing in 2022 and is available with excellent proven Frozen Semen by the dose
