State Premium mare and stallion mother Show Hit has produced another magnificent black colt, this time by World Champion Fürst Heinrich!

This colt is the epitome of a modern dressage horse with the looks and movement that sets
him apart from the rest - he is exceptional in every way. We are so proud of him and have named him Larkshill Fürst Knight as he is gallant, bold and regal. Knights have traditionally been the "Devoted Champions of a Lady" - we think this boy will command the attention of more than a few ladies in his lifetime!

Sire Fürst Heinrich
Fürst Heinrich, a celebrated World Champion of five-year old dressage stallions in 2003, became a star sire within just a few years. He was awarded a Premium at the NRW Licensing in 2000, he then went on to become Champion of his Performance Test in Münster-Handorf. In 2002 he was a Main Premium winner at Oldenburg.

In his short breeding career ( as he sadly dies aged 7) he has produced well over 40 Licensed Stallions including many Premium stallions, Champions and Reserve Champions. At the 2004 Oldenburger Licensing, Fürst Heinrich was well represented with two sons, Van the Man and First Forez being awarded Champion and Reserve Champion respectively. The impressive list of State Premium mares sired by Fürst Heinrich is further evidence of the consistent quality being produced. The list includes Fantastica, Champion Mare of the 2005 Westphalen Elite Mare Show, Feh, 1d Premium Mare and Furstin, 1h Premium Mare, at the 2005 Rheinland Elite Mare Show. The Oldenburger Elite Mare Show in Rastede resulted in two Fürst Heinrich daughters finishing in the Brilliant Ring, 1f Premium for Gloriette and 1h Premium for Deotlinger Deern. Herzfurstin was awarded 1d Premium at the 2006 Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar Elite Mare Show, and Famagusta, 1j at the Rheinland Mare Show.

Fürst Heinrich delivered top priced auction foals from his first foal crop and in 2006 his son, Fürstenball ( who went on to sire the Champion Oldenburg Stallion 2012 from his first foal crop!) sold for the record price of 110,000 Euros at the Oldenburger Foal Auction. His first foal crops produced Champion foals at regional shows and a daughter won the German Foal Champion in 2003.

Perhaps his most successful daughter is Woodlander Farouche, who was the World Champion, of five-year old dressage horses in Verden and last year she also was the 6 year old World Champion too! Great news for British Breeding!

Dam St.Pr.St Show Hit
St.Pr.St Show Hit is a truly sensational mare. She is a State Premium mare and is mother of Oldenburg and BWBS Licensed Stallion Larkshill Debonair. She comes from three generations of State Premium mares. Her sire is the World Champion stallion Show Star who is one of Sandro Hit’s most successful young sons.  Show Hit was awarded her State Premium title at the prestigious Elite mare show in Münster-Handorf where she competed against 80 mares selected from throughout Germany. She was awarded outstanding marks for her conformation, movement and type.

In 2008 Carl Hester named Show Hit the 2008 Reserve Champion Dressage Broodmare at the BEF Elite Championship Show. All her oldenburg foals have all been awarded the coveted Oldenburg Foal Premium. Her first foal Larkshill Riaza was graded with a Verband Premium with the Westfalian Verband. Her daughter Larkshill Supremacy was BEF Elite and Champion Foal and Oldenburg Premium graded as a 3 year old. Show Hit was one of only 100 mares worldwide to be approved to be bred to the Dressage sensation Moorlands Totilas.

Show Hit is from one of the oldest and most successful dam lines in Westfalian breeding. From this mother line came the great stallions Grunhorn I, II and III and more recently, from her grand dam St.Pr.St. Fontaene came the very successful Sattelkorung winner, the Riccione son, Rittmeister. With a strong and convincing dam line of her own through Potsdam and Faschingsprinz the mother brings the best of old and new. Her sire Show Star is a Premium Stallion, he became vice Champion riding horse at the Oldenburg State Championships in Rastede as a 3 year old. He went on to be the Champion at the German Federal Bundeschampionate as a 3 year old scoring two times a 10 from the test riders & Vice Champion as a 4 year old. Sandro Hit of course needs no introduction - he is already writing sporting and breeding history!
