She scores a massive 9.16 in total and receives all 9.5s & 9s for all categories, including Conformation, Type & Temperament, Athleticism and Paces. This exceptional filly foal was the highest scoring Dressage horse of the day at the qualifier - beating all the older horses!

Pedigree
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 Saddle licensing winner, the Riccione son, Rittmeister. With a strong and convincing dam line of her own through Potsdam and Faschingsprinz her pedigree 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!
