in Münster-Albachten / Germany
SkyHigh in Albachten - theme of this year's stallion show at the stud 'Hengststation Holkenbrink' in Münster-Albachten.
Presented are fourteen stallions that have been stationed at this EU Stud farm. This impressive number of stallions comprises top progenitors of dressage and jumping horses, champions of the Bundeschampionat, and Licensing champions. The already renowned sires of dressage horses Show Star, Rock Forever, Silbermond, Piko's Son and Franziskus are shown. They are followed by the runner-up of the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) stallion licensing Van Vivaldi. In the showjumping set we present famous stallions such as Aragorn W, Last Man Standing, Lestat and Corvo ECL. Added to the showjumping stallions are Earl of Classic HD and Corpeggio.
The young stallions, just arrived from the Licensing stations, provide new variety to the already excellent diversity of the Station Holkenbrink. First of all, the impressive Van Vivaldi from Vivaldi x Olivi, who convinces with his outstanding movements and is very interesting for breading due to his Dutch roots. Corpeggio is the new arrival from the NRW jumping Licensing station. This bay stallion descends from the remarkable jumping sire Cornet's Stern and in his Dam's line contains the valued blood of Arpeggio. The Pony stallion Cyrill is successfully supplemented by Delmonte from Donnerwetter x Delgado.
A special highlight of this year's stallion show will be the appearance of the 2012 Champion of the Bundeschampionat, Franziskus. Many still remember his wonderful performance in Warendorf where he won the gold medal of the 4-year old stallions with an impressive run from start to finish.
Watch this year's show, the programme of 'SkyHigh' in Albachten will enchant and delight breeders, riders, visitors, and friends of horses alike.
