|Bloodline||Bloodline Erdinger x Furst Heinrich|
|Breeder||Gestut Sprehe, Germany|
Esperado is a knockout of a horse with a beautiful outline and a perfectly positioned neck. He has three spectacular gaits with a correct and extravagant mechanic. He was bred by legendary German breeding farm, Gestut Sprehe, and he is by the exciting stallion, Erdinger.
Erdinger took his 14-day test in Neustadt (Dosse) in 2017 where he finished the test as clear victor of the dressage index with top scores: a 9.5 for trot and an 8.87 in total. We eagerly await his first crop in 2018.
The sire Escolar, who characterized Erdinger clearly, was twice Bundeschampion of young stallions under Hermann Burger in 2012 and 2013. In the meantime, he is victorious up to Inter I classes under Hubertus Schmidt. Just recently they placed second in the 2017’ Nürnberg Burg Trophy in Frankfurt. Everywhere, his offspring attract attention as far above-average dressage horses, who dominate the national championships and Bundeschampionate, and place their sire on a top position in the predicted breeding value statistics. The dam produced also the licensed son Puerto Rico (by Peking) and other dressage and show jumping horses for the upper classes, such as Davy Jones (by Don Laurie I) under Victoria Suppert, who succeeded internationally up to Inter II level, or Fernando (by Fürst Piccolo), who was finalist at the foal championship in Lienen and is now on the way into the grand dressage arena.
The stallion performance test winning dam’s sire Contender is one of the most demanded and most proven sires in Germany. His offspring earned prize money of more than 9.3 million Euro in all disciplines. Nearly 130 sons are licensed in Germany alone. The great grandsire Coriander is well-known for the versatility of the Holsteiner horse. As successful grand prix horse, he is distinguished with an outstanding jumping-ability and is esteemed as sire of the very best Holsteiner talents.
Damsire, Furst Heinrichn died in an accident as a 7-year old. He was a Westphalian bred stallion by Florestan I out of Dawina (by Donnerhall x Weinberg). He was bred by Heinrich Ramsbrock from Menslage, Germany. As a two-year old, Furst Heinrich was presented at the 2000 Westfalian stallion licensing and became a premium stallion. Gestut Sprehe purchased the black stallion in the after-sales.
In 2001, Furst Heinrich won the 30-day Stallion Test at Munster/Handorf. In 2003, he became World Young Horse Champion. At the 2005 Westfalian “Vorauswahl” (the preselection for the auction), 19 Furst Heinrich offsprings were presented and seven were accepted for the licensing.
