His Highness was the undisputed Hanoverian licensing champion in 2002. Though he was in high demand as a breeding stallion, he began his dressage career under Klaus Balkenhol. At the Danish licensing in 2005, he was champion of the 4-yearold dressage stallions. In 2003, he was champion of his 30-day stallion test and his 70-day test, receiving the outstanding score of 149.24. His sire, Hohenstein I, named 2002 Trakehner Sire of the Year, was a Premium stallion at his licensing and reserve champion at his stallion performance test at Adelheisdorf, receiving the highest dressage index of 148.29 of 52 stallions. His dam, SPS Daireen, was a multiple champion at breed shows. Her sire, Donnerhall, had incredible success as a breeding and sport stallion, earning two Gold medals at World championships and producing licensed sons and States Premium mares. His Highness stood at Hengststation Jens Meyer in Germany for only five seasons, leaving an indelible influence on Hanoverian breeding. His progeny include 16 licensed stallions, 69 State Premium mares, and an ever-increasing number of performers in upper level dressage. Fully approved Hanoverian stallion, Hampton, was reserve champion of his 70-day test and successful up to Intermediare I. Two other His Highness’ sons, Hayden and Hampton, were finalists at the prestigious Nuremberg Burgpokal in Frankfurt. Happiness was reserve champion of the Herwart von der Decken Show. SPS Hila was champion mare of the Louis Wiegels Show. Owners of his offspring compliment their sweet temperaments, beautiful toplines and extraordinary gaits.
