The club of
income producers
The New Year traditionally begins with new reading material:
The FN-Yearbook Sport and Breeding published by the German Equestrian
Federation lists which competitors did best during the past season.

T
he following sentence is printed in bold letters
and jumps out at you as soon as you have
opened the DVD-cover: “Caution: Addiction possible!” The producers of the Yearbook Sport and
Breeding of the German Equestrian Federation
(FN) clearly know all too well about the exciting
content of this DVD; it is published only once a
year. The FN extensive reference publication lists
Germany’s most successful: its most successful
show horses, the best breeders and the most decorated riders. Top producer Stakkato with Eva
Bitter posed for the cover. The DVD includes the
data of all horses, mares, geldings and stallions
registered with one of the FN-recognized associations. The competition statistics are based on the
successes on horse shows that took place from
October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Two criteria determine the success: Ranking points (RLP)
and the total winnings throughout the competition cycle. A certain amount of points are assigned
to every placement during the competition year
for rider and horse. The FN adopted the point system. The ranking points also serve as the basis to
determine the breeder’s premium in respect to the
horses. The breeders of the 2,500 most successful
German jumpers, 1,000 most successful German
dressage- and 100 most successful German event
horses as well as the 200 most successful German
jumper ponies, the 100 most successful German
dressage ponies and the 20 most successful event
ponies have been recognized since 2005. The successes are based on the annual rankings of the
FN. The premiums for breeders are based on the
placements of the horses in the respective ranking.
Dressage
The FN honors the top ten of the most successful
horses according to the annual winnings of the
four-legged athletes. Five Hanoverians are in the
top ten in dressage; three are in eventing and one
is in jumping. Don Johnson FRH by Don Frederico/
Warkant (breeder: Ulrike Meyer, Dedelstorf) is the
top income-producer in the dressage ring. The
athlete won 120,000.00 Euros with his rider Isabell Werth and places second behind Damon Hill
NRW with Helen Langehanenberg. The pair takes
first place in the ranking for Hanoverians after having been in fourth position last year. 8,800 points
for team-gold at the European Championships in
Herning, 4,400 points for the victory in Aachen’s
Nation Cup and 6,000 points for fifth place in the
World-Cup final in Gothenburg among others
were the reason for this considerable advancement. All gold-medal winning team members in
Denmark received the same amount of points for
their performances: Desperados FRH was last
year’s best Hanoverian of all FN-lists and placed
second in ranking points and third in the ranking
of the top-income producers. Kristina Sprehe and
her beautiful black by De Niro/Wolkenstein II
(breeder: Herbert Schütt, Hemmoor) impressed
with first-rate performances at the international
competitions in Neumünster, Stuttgart and Aachen. Desperados FRH unfortunately had to take a
short break from competitions because of an injury. D’Agostino FRH by De Niro/Shogun xx (breeder: Klaus Lahmann, Dassendorf) and Fabienne
Lütkemeiers performances not only received the
recognition of the experts but also top placements
in Frankfurt, Dortmund and Lingen; these facts catapulted the pair into the group of top-income
producers. Not only the debut at the European
Championships doubled this pair’s ranking points.
Dablino FRH by De Niro/Wanderbusch (breeder:
Weert-Arnold Sweers, Krummhörn) also had to
overcome an injury. He and his rider Anabel Balkenhol were denied the participation at the European Championships because of it. As the pair
proved their top form throughout the rest of the
season they received fifth place in the ranking
points. Four times FRH in the top four – an impressive result!
We can find new faces in the top ten of the FNstatistics: Blind Date by Breitling W/Donnerhall
(breeder: Margarethe Klase, Maasen) and Victoria
Max-Theurer competed in Germany – among
others in Bremen, Aachen and Stuttgart. The pair
holds the sixth position in the ranking points. The
former Burgpokal-winner is one of Germany’s top
income producers for the first time (eighth place).
So Nice by Sandro Hit/Brentano II (breeder: Heide
Espel, Wallenhorst) is the youngest competitor in
the league of ranking points and is in ninth place.
The state’s premium aspirant is now ten years old.
Marion Wiebusch has ridden the mare since the
beginning of her career.
Jumping
The prize money in jumping is quite a bit higher
than in dressage. Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum’s
Holstein mare Bella Donna earned more than
400,000.00 Euros in jumping competitions – no
other horse achieved more. These amounts do not
remain unnoticed. Just a few weeks ago the eleven-year old sold to Qatar.
There is only one Hanoverian in the league of the
top ten income-producing jumpers: Codex One by
Contendro/Glückspilz (breeder: Wilhelm Berghorn, Stolzenau) and his rider Christian Ahlmann
hold sixth place, winning almost 250,000.00 Euros. This result does not instantly turn this handsome twelve-year old into one of the horses with
top ranking points. Multi talent Embassy II by Es-

The Hanoverian 03|2014
Collecting the most placements in 2013: Embassy II
with rider Hans-Dieter Dreher Photo: Rau
cudo/Silvio (breeder: Dr. Bonny-Jasmin Jacobs,
Bierbergen) heads on this division. The multitude
of his starts in international Grand Prix classes in
Aachen, Rotterdam, Paris and Valkenswaard with
his rider Hans-Dieter Dreher and his outstanding
placements earned him more than 53,000 points.
Promising: The statistics reflect many new names.
Lord Lohengrin by Lordanos/Diskus (breeder: Helmut Kordes, Sulingen) is a former elite-auction
horse that Patrick Stühlmeyer has ridden for about
two years. The bronze medal at the German
Championships in Balve and fourth place in the
Grand Prix of Oslo are only two of the exceptional
successes of this pair that holds third place in this
ranking. The F-blood is represented again after a
one-year abstinence with three For Pleasure descendants. Flying Boy by Fly High/Sao Paulo (breeder: Meinolf Roelleke, Bochum) finished in sixth
position. First of Lorne by For Pleasure/Stakkato
(breeder: Helmut Bischof, Beverstedt) and rider
Katrin Eckermann follow in seventh place. Fine
Lady by Forsyth/Drosselklang II (breeder: Wilhelm
Leymann, Bassum) and Holger Wulscher took
tenth.

Eventing
In respect to eventing FRH Escada JS and Ingrid
Klimke were the team all other performances
were measured by in 2013. The championship rider directed the ten-year old daughter of Embassy/Lehnsherr (breeder: Jürgen Stuhtmann, Winsen)
into first place in Wiesbaden and into third in
Luhmühlen. The pair was a member of the goldmedal winning team at the European Championships in Malmö where they also won the individual silver medal. This pair placed third in the
national comparison of the top-earning event
competitors. Michael Jung’s Olympic champion
Sam still leads the statistics for earnings. Many
successes bring about many points –FRH Escada
JS also holds the top position in the category of
ranking points.
Driving
A well-known competitor is in first place in the
fourth equestrian discipline: The most successful
Hanoverian driving horse is Draco by Drosselklang
II/Silvio (breeder: Marlies Visscher, Leer). Draco is a
member of the four-in-hand team of Theo Timmermann that won gold in the Nation Cup of Aachen
and double gold at the European Championships
in Izsak, Hungary. n

Top performers in dressage and jumping compete
especially in Florida.
By Britta Züngel
Everybody talked about him: Juan Matute
Gurion who is the son of the Spanish Olympic competitor Juan Matute convinced in the
dressage ring with great talent and excellent
presentations. He won Prix St. Georges, Intermediaire I and the freestyle at the CDI in
Wellington at the beginning of February. The
16-year old rode the Hanoverian Don Diego

Claus Schütt, Hemmoor). He rode Dhannie

level for the first time and I was very nervous. He was perfect and I greatly enjoyed
the ride,” the young rider from Spain said.
He trained at Oliver Oelrich’s farm in Germany during the past months before he moved
to his dad’s facility in Wellington. He is sure,
“My horses enjoyed the victories as much as
I did. They like winning; they like to hear the
audience applaud!” Juan Matute’s goal is

Celle’s state stud sire Fabriano by Wendulan/Azur (breeder: Johannes Benker, Papenburg) died at the end of last year at the age
of 26. The dark bay that was raised by Arnd
Deters in Schüttorf was nominated for
Celle’s first lot in 1989 and moved to the
state stud. He won his stallion performance
test in superior fashion with an overall index
of 133,20 points against 36 stallions. He
won the jumping component with 132,37
points. Albert Habermann rode him to victory at the time. He was awarded the Freiherr
von Stenglin-Prize as the top of his vintage.
The dual-talented sire was stationed in Bodenstein in 1991. Fabriano stood at stud in
Schillerslage from 1992 until 2006. He was

within and outside the borders of Germany
who highly valued his first-rate dual-talent
and his even-tempered disposition. The demand for this stallion has been very steady.
Hardly any other stallion in the state stud
encounters such a steady interest. Fabriano
produced a total of 775 registered show
horses including 40 successful S-level dressage competitors and 14 S-level jumpers.
His most renowned descendants are his
daughters Fabriana and Fine Finesse and his
son Fisherman’s Friend. He sired a total of

Kaernten. They also stand Del Magico by Dimaggio/Feinbrand (breeder: Stefan Herrmann, Imbshausen), a stallion that was
awarded the Weltmeyer-Prize and that had
also become an approval champion in Austria, as well as the sire Leon d’Or by Londonderry/Calypso II (breeder: Hannes Bruening,
Ochtmannien). n
Quistallo van der Helle by Quaid/Stakkato
(breeder: Heinz-Herbert Grube, Wolfsburg)
was licensed in Belgium. He caused quite a
sensation because of his talent over fences.
He provided proof of his talent last October
becoming a premium stallion in Verden. His
stable mate the one-year older premium stallion Sulaiky van de Helle by Stakkato/Wienerwald (breeder: Barbara Keller, Schöntal) received the green light, too. n
Stallions
Left the stage
The Klosterhof Medingen suffered two bitter
losses in its stallion roster within a short period of time. Hohenstein by Caprimond/Matador passed away at the age of 23 in November. The premium sire of the Trakehner
approval 1993 and Trakehner Stallion of the
Year 2002 sired thirty licensed sons. Hohenstein successfully competed in dressage at
the S-level and produced highly successful
sport horses. Habitus is one of his most famous sons. He won gold three times at the
European Championships for juniors with
Johanne Pauline von Danwitz. Hochadel, Hohenstaufen and top seller His Highness are
just a few of Hohenstein’s licensed sons. A
few weeks after Hohenstein died, his sire Caprimond by Karon/Mackensen passed away
at the age of 29. The reserve champion of his
approval and stallion performance testchampion produced 14 approved sons. Caprimond was stationed on the Klosterhof for
most of his life. He paved the way to competition for all Wahler-children. n

Strong performance lines
Cadillac PJ by Corlensky G/El Bundy became champion of his age group in the freejumping competition for four-year olds from the Program for Hanoverian Jumper
Horse Breeding with 27,8 points. A total of sixty-nine talents of the 2010 vintage
participated in the competition in the Niedersachsenhalle in Verden in February.

T
he times when individual stallions dominated
the free-jumping competition in Verden are
over. A multitude of very good sires with different
bloodlines are available to today’s Hanoverian
jumper horse breeders. Correspondingly diverse
were the pedigrees of the horses on the result
sheets of the 18th free-jumping competition for
four-year olds. The damside of the pedigrees was
the determining quality factor for the young jumper horses; Dieter Smitz and Andreas Knippling
judged and commented. The better horses descended from the better dams or, more accurately from
the better dam-lines.
St.Pr.A. Victoria by Uccello/Laptop (breeder/exhibitor: Detlef Jark, Niederhüll) won the first group. “A
modern horse that improved from one round to
the next,” said Andreas Knippling. St.Pr.A. Victoria
radiated enormous composure in every phase of
her performance. These interior attributes combined with a high degree of elasticity at the fences
and in her movement make her a very special horse and a worthy group champion. She shares her
damline of Blenna with St.Pr.A. Cunterbunte who
was the champion mare in jumping of the Herwart
von der Decken-Show in 2013. The grey mare Chapala by Contagio out of April Sun by Argentinus
who was the Hanoverian Mare of the Year 2009
followed in a close second place. Chapala (breeder: Henning Müller-Rulfs, Ritterhude) is a halfsister to the internationally successful jumper Lantinus. There certainly are visible similarities in
respect to radiance and presence in spite of the
different paternal pedigree. The long-legged and
modern mare completed all the questions effortlessly and faultlessly. Cimarron by Contender/ Graf
Grannus followed in third position. The breeding
farm Priess from Burgdorf bred Cimarron by a proven method of “C x G”. Karl Brocks discovered him
on Verden’s stallion market; last year Cimarron
was already a group champion. The youngster did
not perform quite as well this year even though
Dieter Smitz considered his jumping style and ability to be outstanding. He started out a bit too motivated. He regained control during the course of
his presentation, though. Hence the mares passed
him in the placements.

Cadillac PJ by Corlensky G/El Bundy (breeder: Dr.
Jacobs, Bierbergen) won in the second group and
became champion of his vintage. Equipped with a
high degree of elasticity the grey convinced with
his positive attitude towards every task at hand.
He jumped the most difficult fences in a seemingly
effortless fashion. Sixtyseven by Sir Shutterfly/Cheenook (breeder: Ulrich Hennings, Suhlendorf) followed in second place. In accordance with the high
concentration of G-blood in her pedigree the large-framed mare from the stable Wacholderheide owned by Family Iqbal, Himbergen – started out
rather inconspicuous but secure and with good
overview that she never lost. It helped her develop
her true potential. Jürgen Uhlenwinkel who is a

was the third-placed horse in the second group.
She completed the tasks at hand with cleverness
and a very apparent positive and athletic attitude.
As with so many successful Hanoverians, we also
find G-blood on the maternal side of the pedigree
from the winner of the third group. The performance of Pjakkur S by Perigueux/Garant (breeder/
exhibitor: Sandra Staud, Kuhfelde) really convinced
the judging team. The stallion that almost appeared insignificant in his type exhibited a superiority with composure and supreme ease that allows hope for a grand future. His natural way of
jumping appeared effortless and secure. His dam
successfully competes in jumper classes up to the
M-level. Pjakkur S convinced with his ability at last
year’s free-jumping competition, too. He is a worthy group champion now he has gained security.

path appears predestined and the judges awarded
her second place in this group for her powerful
jumping ability. Günter Franz from Warmsen presented St.Pr.A. Quintara by Quintender/Lordanos
(breeder: Andrea Janssen, Neuschoo). Her dam is
the full sister to La Melonga who was a successful
competitor in the Grand Prix of Oliva/Spain with
rider Bjoern Nagel. St.Pr.A. Quintara is a striking
mare. She impressed with her liveliness, her athleticism and with a remarkable hind leg technique.
She placed third in this group.
We witnessed a start-to-finish victory by Queenessa Verdi I by Verdi/Grandferdinand II (breeder: ZG
Ollmann & Tapken, Delmenhorst) in the fourth
group. She was the first horse in her group to compete and she set the standard for the rest of the
participants. She carries the performance-strong
G-blood on the damside of her pedigree. Internationally successful Llandovery by Landor S (Karl
Brocks) and Adelaide by Acord II (Jan Wernke) are
her siblings. Queenessa Verdi I impressed with her
ambitious jumping style that was confirmed when
she reacted to a small mistake in a desired way.
Szenario by Stakkato/Calypso II (breeder: Insa
Heitzmann, Stolzenau; exhibitor: Gabriele Heemsoth, Verden-Eitze) was the last horse in the competition and almost changed the entire outcome.
The stallion impressed with his elasticity and in
true Stakkato-fashion always was attentive and
willing to perform. He finished in second place in
the end that was an improvement from last year’s
fourth position. Two four-year olds shared third
place: Peggy Sue PJ by Perigueux out of a mare
with M-level successes by Coupe de Coeur (breeder/exhibitor: Dr. Jacobs, Bierbergen) and Gin Tonic
by Graf Top/Sandro (breeder: Kurt-Heinrich Böttcher, Brüninghorstedt). “A horse with all possibilities,” said Dieter Smitz about the stallion Gin Tonic
whose dam had placed fourth in the free-jumping
competition and whose siblings Desiree and Contero are recorded in Verden’s victory lists.
The free-jumping competition in Verden proved
once again that a good damline is essential for a
successful breeding program and that a multitude
of very good jumper stallions are available to Hanoverian jumper horse breeders today. Performance is not a stroke of luck. The judges were unable to evaluate the natural way of jumping. of
some horses. Some horses were prepared extremely well and professionally for the free-jumping

I greatly enjoyed the free-jumping competition. We witnessed rather different performances. The pedigrees were very diverse. There are many stallions in Hannover
that jump well – the pedigrees reflected
this fact. We also saw horses with somewhat limited potential. Caution and performance willingness are very important
in a jumper. It is of utmost importance
that a horse enjoys jumping; it must want
to go along!
Breeders must not try to save money regarding the training of jumpers today.
Many horses are easier to sell, once they
have received some training.”

Hardly any other stallion has been talked about as
much as Diacontinus. The grey out of the breeding program of Klaus Jürgens, Sehnde-Bolzum,
was a much observed premium sire at his licensing
in Verden. His full-sister St.Pr.A. Diarada KJ became
the celebrated champion mare of the Herwart von
der Decken-Show just two months earlier. The enthusiasm of jumper horse breeders was great
when Diacontinus moved to the State Stud Celle
and was then sent to the insemination station in
Dorum. He needed not bemoan a lack of demand
as he has bred 85 mares out of the Program for
Hanoverian Jumper Horse Breeding alone. The large-framed and impressive three-year old eradicated every last doubt at the performance test. Diacontinus convinced all down the line with bravura!
He obtained the dream score of 10,0 for free-jumping during training, for his jumping ability during
the test and for his gallop outside during the trai-

Donatus grew up on the rolling hills of the stallion-raising farm Hunnesrück. State stud manager
Dr. Axel Brockmann is delighted that one of ‘his’
colts has caused a sensation once again. After the
70-day-test during which a dressage breed value
of 151 was determined for Donatus, the largeframed and powerfully moving chestnut with his
sport-horse look was awarded premium status at
his licensing in Adelheidsdorf.
Donatus’ first breeding station will be Ankum that
is the station where foundation sires like Brentano
II, Weltmeyer and Londonderry so beneficially procreated. Donatus was born on the farm of ErnstOtto Heitmann in the area of Lüneburg. The damline of Porima had its beginning in 1981 on the
farm of Ernst-Otto Heitmann’s great-uncle in Ba-
ning phase. All individual scores added up to the
best performance test result given in Germany in
2013. His breed value for jumping was estimated
at 150 points with a final weighted score of 9,3 for
jumping.
The successful Hanoverian damline of Pension is
responsible for this performance. This damline has
already produced Celle’s state stud sires Willem’s
As by Watzmann/Pokal, Foxhunter by Watzmann/
Inschallah AA and Perpignon by Pilot/Watzmann
and the dual federal champion and reserve world
champion of dressage horses Placido by Prestige
Pilot/Watzmann. Diacontinus’ dam St.Pr. mare Carentina who deceased last spring was also a master in her field. A score of 10,0 for jumping ability
in her mare test and fourth place in the free-jumping competition in Verden in 2005 are some of
her accomplishments. Her son Spartakus by Stakkato was born 2007 and already has placements

rum who gave his grandfather a filly as a present
later. The statistic reads six licensed stallions and
fourteen state’s premium mares. Dressage genes
were laid into Donatus’ cradle. His dam is St.Pr.
mare Windmühle who has already delivered Florentino by Fabriano. Karen Tebar successfully competes Florentino at the international level for
France.
“This was a respectable affair,” Ernst-Otto Heitmann is delighted about the award ceremony in
the Niedersachsenhalle in Verden. Donatus is his
first premium sire. “He was somewhat insignificant
as a foal but developed enormously under saddle.”
The breeder had two reasons to be overjoyed on
the day of the stallion performance test: His stallion victorious and his hunting dog successfully
completed his test as the best representative of
the breed German-shorthair on the same day. n
Breeding
Movement counts
Dantano‘s career began on the foal auction in
Luhmühlen. His first career highlight was recorded
when the dark bay completed his 70-day-test in
Schlieckau with a phenomenal result. A dressagebreed value of 145 points is one of the best obtained last year. The weighted final score for dressage was 8,95. He received top scores for his basic
gaits and his rideability. The stars were actually
not in his favor. His final results unfortunately had
to be projected because of an injury.
Wilhelm Klausing from Diepholz who is well
known for raising colts bought the expressive dark
bay out of the breeding program of Catharina
Quast, Hamburg on the foal auction in Luhmühlen
in 2010. Dantano was licensed in Verden on the
late licensing in December two years later. The
breeding farm Westfalenhof in Steinhagen discovered the powerfully moving dressage talent and
had bought him as a breeding stallion. Highly suc-
Talent in the dressage ring
Fürstenhof was one of the two-and-a-half year
olds at the stallion market in 2012 that were very
high in demand. Dr. Axel Brockmann secured the
premium sire together with the State Studs Marbach and Redefin after an exciting bidding duel. In
addition to Diacontinus Dr. Brockmann also bought
a second top representative of the 2010 vintage.
The dark bay with his exemplary rideability and
performance willingness and a dressage breed value of 147 points will return to Roydorf where he

qualities as a three-year old when Birte Senftleben
rode him to victory in three riding horse classes.
cessful genetics are offered. The most famous representative of the damline of Noreja is Celle’s
state stud sire Rotspon by Rubinstein/Argentan.
Rotspon was awarded the Freiherr von StenglinPrize being the champion of his performance test.
This prize is the successor of the Weltmeyer-Prize.
Amadeus by Afrikaner/Servus earned Olympic honors when he participated in eventing at the
Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996 with his rider
Hendrik von Paepcke. Weinbrand by Waldspecht
xx/Dominus is one of the most successful dressage
horses out of this line. Gina Capellmann obtained
her first championship successes in the junior- and
in the young rider-divisions with Weinbrand.
Dantano’s pedigree offers interesting bloodlines
even though the foundation dam Noreja comes
from the area of Hadeln. A solid amount of Arabian blood was added in East Friesland through
Mersuch who is the sire of St.Pr. mare Monte before Belle Amie made her way to Hamburg via Diepholz. n

Fürstenhof’s one-year older full-brother was born
in 2009. “He was gorgeous,” Karl Lehing raves still
today. He raised Fletcher and sold him on the stallion market to the Danish breeding farm Blue Hors.
Fürstenhof on the hand grew up with Henning and
Ulrike Mues in Nendorf who bought the foal from
the breeder. “He has three first-rate basic gaits. He
was always very well-behaved and working with
him was very easy,” Henning Mues says. He is so
convinced about the quality of the stallion that he
bought a mare and had her inseminated by Fürstenhof. n
Karl Lehing from Wagenfeld bred Fürstenhof. Karl
Lehing devoted his time to his small breeding and
training operation for young horses after his retirement from public services. Fuerstenhof’s dam Weltina was at the farm to be prepared for the mare
test in Wagenfeld. She was for sale. “She descended from a strong performance mare-line from the
area of Stade. I took her over on the spot,” Karl
Lehing remembers.

The „Year of the horse“

Verden’s winter auction was the first sale event in the Niedersachsenhalle and the

anoverian horse enthusiasts from within and
outside of Germany looked forward to the
collection of the winter auction with excitement.
The collection was available on the Internet and on
social networks like Facebook and YouTube with
pedigrees, photos and videos before Christmas.
120 selected riding horses were described in the
auction catalog – 100 entered the auction arena
on the day of the sale. “The share of horses that
dropped out was quite high at this auction. A number of horses unfortunately did not make it to Verden due to injuries,” auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener explains. Trainer and commentator
Hartmut Kettelhodt was delighted about the versatility of the collection, “The horses have a high degree of quality. Many horses exhibited first-rate
basic gaits. Some of the participants still show training weaknesses because of the time of year. The
time to become familiar to the surroundings from
January 13 to 17 was very helpful. The young auction horses were given a little bit of time to get
used to new riders and a new surrounding in the
arena of Lower Saxony.” The social media like YouTube and Facebook are long established in the
equestrian scene. The Hannoveraner channel on
YouTube and the Hannoveraner page on Facebook
have received more than 900 Likes and consistently enjoy a growing number of visitors. The highquality collection attracted worldwide attention
via the World Wide Web. The focus was not on one
particular horse but on the quality of the entire
collection that was well received and much sought
after. The trailer with the advertisement received
356 Likes and was viewed on YouTube 8,000
times.

cio/Regazzoni daughter developed beautifully under rider Marco Bührig and was cared for by Sandra Kappernagel and showed off her advantages
daily. Walk, trot and canter were of top quality and
made every dressage rider rave. Heinz Otte-Krone
bred her in Stemwede; Axel Windeler from VerdenWalle is the exhibitor of this full sister to privatelyowned sire Fineliner who sold on the stallion market in 2007 for 210,000.00 Euros. Fineliner
currently successfully competes in dressage at the
S-level with rider Michael Klimke. First Class is six
years of age. She served as a broodmare in 2013.
The auction is always exciting for Axel Windeler, his
wife Martina and his daughter Ann-Kathrin even
after experiencing it for decades. Family Windeler
was awarded the Hans Joachim Koehler-Prize in
2010; it is an award presented to especially successful auction exhibitors. Axel Windeler has exhibited as many as 61 auction horses so far. Numerous horses from his barn were celebrated as
top-selling horses. Danny De Vito by De Niro/Warkant remains unforgettable and so do Weltano by
Weltmeyer, Royal Rose by Royal Highness and
Winergy by Weltmeyer. The breeding farm Windeler
has once again proved its quality as a place for

A knack for
animals
Horses play a big role in the life of
Heinrich Bremer in Nöpke. The breeder
can look back on a successful year with
the stallion licensing as the highlight.

Heinrich Bremer has a real good knack for
animals. He earns his livelihood with it. The
farmer from Nöpke that is a village located in the
region of Hannover raises pigs for a living. His
heart is with other animals, though. Even though
horse breeding is officially another branch of the
business, the reality is that Heinrich (54) and Karin
Bremer with their sons Henrik and Christian see
their love for horses as a hobby. Lately they have
earned good money with their hobby and because
of remarkable breed successes the family has earned respect from all sides.
The breeders of premium stallions were recognized
before the auction started on the stallion sales in
Verden in October 2013. It was the biggest day of
Heinrich Bremers breeding career. His stallion by
Diarado out of Cobina by Contendro/Grannus became a premium stallion. The arena of Lower Saxony was sold out. Heinrich Bremer received a lot of
applause during the award ceremony because his
two-and-a-half year old had proven to be one of
the most talented and most spectacular jumper
stallions of this approval the day before. “One will
never forget the moment of being recognized in
the Niedersachsenhalle in front of so many spectators.” The breeder remembers the moment vividly.
The following bidding duel for his stallion that
took place no more than two hours later was just
as impressive and is also ingrained in his memory.
The final bid of 120,000.00 Euros came from Paul
Schockemöhle himself.
It is the end of January 2014. Winter has finally
arrived and is sending ice-cold winds over the
open fields in the region of Hannover. The temperatures do not pass the freezing point even during
the day. Heinrich Bremer’s farm is located on the
18
The Hanoverian 03|2014
outskirts of Nöpke; it is a small farming village. Its
name appears in official record books for the first
time in 1165. Heinrich Bremer is the “third Heinrich” in the fifth generation to operate the farm.
The Bremer family has lived in Nöpke for about
200 years. Heinrich Bremer’s ancestors bought the
farm in 1895.
Horses played a big role in farming everywhere.
Horses started to disappear when the first tractors
appeared on the farms. In the 1960s Heinrich Bremer Sr. got rid of the horses. He had been an active
rider until then. His son Heinrich was born in 1959.
He got a pony for his eleventh birthday; four years
later he got a three-year old riding horse by Domaenenrat/Kurde that he successfully competed
up to victories at the M-level over the course of the
next ten years. His brother Harald still successfully
rides up to the M-level. The passion of both Bremer
sons was jumping. Hence the desire to breed jumpers came to no surprise. That however did not
happen until later in life. The foundation for a breeding program was laid with the mare Listige by
Lachs in 1978. She produced fillies by Goldstern
that were then bred to Akzent II. Heinrich Bremer
selected the sire Grannus for three full-sisters. One
of the products was the filly Galena who was born
on the farm in 1992. The rise to stardom as a Hanoverian breeder began with Galena.
Acorte, a powerful jumper
We can often find the making of a success story –
in this case the story of Galena by Grannus/Akzent
II – in the curriculum vitae of special Hanoverian
breeders: They start breeding Hanoverians, try this
sire and that sire, then they continue breeding the
female descendants and, all of a sudden, they find
a special combination that changes everything. In

this case the sire Grannus as the sire of Galena
passed on his great jumping and performance potential. In combination with the valuable blood of
Akzent and the jumper blood of Gotthard via his
son Goldstern, Galena’s bloodlines were an excellent fit to modern first-rate jumper-horse producers of the Hanoverian breed like Contendro, Stakkato or Diarado. Bred to Stakkato Galena delivered
the mare Scala in 1999 who then delivered St.Pr.
St. Acorte by Acorado in 2003. Acorte was sold as
a foal, to Johann Rowold from Bremen. He sent the
filly to Dieter Röbken in Ipwege where she then
grew up. Klaus Dierks discovered the powerful
jumper in Ipwege. Rolf Mohrmann competed her.
The first significant successes of Acorte were recorded two years ago when she competed in Leipzig
and Dortmund and then last year in Aachen. She
represented Germany in the Nation Cup in Dublin
and Falsterbo and was eventually sold to Audrey
Coulter from the USA. In combination with San
Brasil, Scala also delivered Scipio who was the
winner of the free-jumping competition for threeyear olds of the Program for Hanoverian Jumper
Horse Breeding in Verden in 2007. Galena died
last year after having delivered a total of twelve
foals and after having produced additional successful broodmares and sport horses like for instance Pia by Perpignon who competed
successfully at S-level under the name Private
Dance. Heinrich Bremer bred Pia to Nobre xx before she started her career as a sport horse. Today
St.Pr.St. Nobina is a broodmare in the Bremer barn.
She has proven herself in combination with the
sire Clinton: The product Clintina placed second in
the free-jumping competition on the Herwart von
der Decken-Show in 2012. Rolf Mohrmann rode
her into the ribbons at the Hanoverian Jumper
Horse Championships last year. Nine-year old Cobina by Contendro is another Galena daughter.
She is the dam of the premium stallion Diatendro
by Diarado. She also produced now four-year old
Diraba by Diarado. Last year Diraba placed second
in her division at the free-jumping competition for
three-year olds in Verden. She received the score
9,5 twice in jumping in her mare test. Stabina is
the fourth broodmare in the Family Bremer barn.
Galena is also her dam; Stakkato her sire. The mare
is five years of age and has had one foal by Contendro that Heinrich Bremer is raising and eventually wants to present. Currently the mare Diraba is
in foal to Grey Top and Cobina to Kannan by Voltaire. Nobina delivered a colt by Clinton in January.
Stabina had a late foal last year and will now be
bred early this season hopefully to Contendro.
Heinrich Bremer has more than 250 sows, 2000
pigs and 200 hectares of farmland. If you ask him
about his principles regarding the breeding of horses, his answer is straight to the point: He predominantly uses young mares in his breeding program; none below a jumper score of nine in her
mare test. He selects sires that are well known for
their performance pedigree. Rideability and the
predisposition for jumping in ability as well as style
are most important to Heinrich Bremer. “All other
criteria is important, too, but I am willing to make
a sacrifice but not in respect to rideability or jumping, though.” In the marketing sector Bremer is
slowly but steadily starting to profit from becoming more and more known as a breeder of excellent jumper horses. In earlier times he sold horses
either right off the farm, through the auction program or through dealers. “Now prospective customers call me directly.” Heinrich Bremer has slightly
changed his marketing formula. “In earlier times
we said, “The first offer is the best.” Now he raises
some of his offspring like for instance Diatendro,
“If you do not risk, you do not win!” n
