Sire: Harvard

His Honor (Hank)  is sired by the imported Elite Hanoverian stallion Harvard (Hohenstein x Cardinal xx) who is a proven sire of excellence. His legacy is quickly establishing in Europe and North America. Harvard has produced multiple Licensed sons, numerous State Premium, Special Premium and Premium Mares, Elite Auction Foals, a Bundeschampion, a finalist at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses, successful International Advanced Dressage competitors, high scoring Oldenburg mares, in 2008 he dam-sired the Champion Filly of Germany, Foals of Distinction, Top Hanoverian Foals and legions of Premium Foals. A strong transmitter of type, Harvards are stamped with his elegant head and convey his kind, sensible disposition. Harvard is a very modern type and sire of talented dressage and hunter progeny. One of his greatest hallmarks is the wonderful temperament that he passes on to his offspring. At his performance test in 1999 he scored a perfect 10 for temperament and straight 9's for character, willingness and ability to work, constitution and rideability.  Standing 16.3hh he is dark brown-black, with four white socks and a connecting star and stripe. He scored straight 8's for his Walk, Trot and Canter and currently holds a Hanoverian breeding index of 136 with indexes of; Walk 128, Trot 133, Canter 131, Type 142, Head 150, Neck 149, and Limbs 125. 

Harvard was bred in Germany by stallion producer Heinrich Laymeyer and began his sport career by being selected as a Premium stallion at his licensing in Vechta at 2.5 years old. The following year he was crowned the Hauptprämie Vice-Champion (1-B Prämie) of the 2000 Oldenburg Main Premium. There are many factors that play a role in the decision when the Verband awards the coveted Main Premiums including the stallion’s development in sport, his results at the stallion performance test and, above all, the quality of his first offspring when they are inspected. Following Harvard's successful top 5 placement at the German Bundeschampionate finals as a Four and Five Year Old with scores up to 8.2, Harvard's breeding career flourished at the renowned Hengsthaltung Kathmann in Germany. While there, he sired numerous “true to type” Elite auction foals, top quality approved stallion sons, State Premium and Verband's Premium daughters and a legacy of successful sport horses in Europe. In short, Harvard is the epitome of the upgrader type, passing on his striking good looks, wonderful character and elastic, athletic gaits.

Rodero was shown successfully in dressage in 1999 and 2000 until he sold as a Upper Level Jumper. Rodero offspring have excelled in the Dressage, Jumper and Eventing arena's. In 2012, Rodero son Riddlemaster was selected to represent Canada with Rebecca Howard at the Olympic Games in London.

DAM: Info Coming Soon!

Danish Dressage Champion 2008 and Olympic Bronze Team Winner in Hong Kong!

Don Schufro consistently produces top results. He became the undisputed Danish Dressage Champion and was part of the Danish Dressage Bronze Team at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong where he placed 11th individually.

At the Danish Stallion Licensing, Don Schufro was once again the sire of the 3-year-old Champion Stallion. Blue Hors Doolittle took the champion title while another Don Schufro son became Premium Stallion. For the second consecutive year a daughter of Don Schufro became Mare of the Year at the Oldenburg Elite Show in Rastede, Germany. In 2007 our mare Rebelle became Oldenburg Champion Mare and in 2008 it was Weihegold (dam sire Sandro Hit) who grabbed the champion title. In Denmark Don Schufro is the only stallion ever to have had three daughters that became Mare of the Year.

At the Danish Young Dressage Horse Championship Finals 11 out of 24 competitors had Don Schufro in their bloodlines! Eventually, the champion had Don Schufro as maternal grand sire, the runner-up had him as paternal grand sire and no. 4 and 5 both had Don Schufro as their sire.

The international dressage show circuit has been buzzing with one mare on everybody’s lips in 2008: Lone Jorgensen’s Donna Asana had her Grand Prix debut and completed her 2008 show record with 7 Grand Prix wins! She has gone directly into the FEI ranking as number 21.

Once again Don Schufro has placed on top of the German Breeding Ranking with a dressage index of 176! His get of sire are distinguishing themselves by a high degree of rideability and extremely good gaits with emphasise on the canter.Don Schufro himself won the dressage section of his performance test with 154,93 points. He has won World Cup qualifications and has more than 30 victories and placings in Grand Prix at some of the most prestigious shows like Aachen, Bremen, Wiesbaden, Lingen, Neumünster and Northen Hardenberg.

The sire and dam sire of Don Schufro, Donnerhall and Pik Bube I, need no further introduction. His great grand sire Unkenruf also competed in Grand Prix. Don Schufro is bred identically to Don Primero as their dams are full sisters. A full sister of Don Schufro is the dam to the approved stallions Cappuccino and Sunny Boy and another full sister is dam of the Austrian rising dressage star Pentagon’s Peron. A third full sister, Fabina, was Oldenburg Mare of the Year at the Elite Show in Rastede in 2003 and prior to this she won the performance test with 214 participating mares. Her first son is the licensed stallion Red Rebel.

This proves that Don Schufro and his relatives are a warranty for quality. He has sired 18 approved sons like Doolitte, Don Romantic, Don Caruso, Diamond Hit, Don Laurie I + II . In Danish Warmblood more than 20 of his daughters have been awarded a medal at the Elite Show; 4 of them gold medals.
