Magnificent black gelding by Champion Stallion His Highness - quite simply breath taking!

Known as HRH he is very charismatic, confident & exceptionally loveable! His paces are excellent, he has a swinging trot, a huge ground covering walk & super canter. He has inherited his dam's & sire's fabulous temperament & is the image of his famous sire!

He was lightly backed as a 3 year old and was given the year off to mature. Now back under saddle and in training in Germany.



2nd November 2007
HRH is awarded a Foal Premium by the Oldenburg Verband who praised his superb movement, type and presence and indicated he is a stallion prospect. Hooray HRH!

His Highness - that sums him up! During the 2002 Hanoverian licensing he was the undisputed Champion. Very rarely the experts were so agreed about the Champion as that year. The classy black stallion impressed by personality, super exterior, correct physique and spectacular gates, long strides in walking, swinging and elastic trot and the height of gallop with long strides, elasticity and wonderful upwards tendency. He was Champion at his stallion performance test, receiving a total score of 149.24. His outstanding quality was rewarded with the dressage index of 155.04, the highest score in this class. His Highness also became the Champion Stallion at the Danish licensing in Herning.

More than 16 of His Highness' sons were licensed, including the Champion Stallion Hampton Court, the stallion performance test Reserve Champion Hampton, the premium stallion and 2nd Reserve Champion of the stallion performance test Hendrix, the premium stallion Hochfein and Hoftanz who was sold for 120,000 Euros.  Thanks to his own performance record and the excellent results of his off-spring at broodmare performance tests, stallion performance tests and in competition sport, His Highness ranked on fourth place among Germany's best riding horse sires as the youngest newcomer in the German FN's estimated breeding value statistics with an estimated breeding value of 166 (90 percent reliability).

His Highness´ sire E.H. Hohenstein is an outstanding black stallion who has an incredible breeding and competition record. He became premium at the licensing in Neumünster in 1993. In 1994 he was Reserve Champion at his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf with a total index of 134.05, winning the dressage section and became rideability champion with 148.29 points. In 1997 Hohenstein presented the champion of the stallion licensing. In 1999 he was proclaimed an Elite Stallion . His Highness´dam, State Premium mare Daireen, was several times Champion of her class at breeding shows. Daireen´s sire Donnerhall deserves the title “Sire of the Century” because of his incredible success as both breeding and as a sport stallion.

Dam - Libitina
Libitina is one of the Stud’s foundation mares and has produced some outstanding offspring. At the 2008 BEF British Breeding Elite Championships Carl Hester named her the 2008 British Breeding Champion Dressage Broodmare out of 16 mares! We were so delighted, one more Championship title to add to her growing list!

She bred the 2006/7 Best British Bred Trakehner and Young Stock Champion Larkshill Lexington. At the British Dressage National Foal Show both Lakota and Lexington both scored 82% and were the highest placed Trakehners in their year. Legend came second at the British Dressage Young Horse Breeding Championships as a yearling. In 2005 she received the recognition she deserves for producing outstanding progeny when she won the Trakehner Breeders Fraternity’s Mare Family Championship, along with her daughters Larkshill Lakota by Kostolany and Larkshill Lexington by E.H. Hohenstein.
