The beautiful young stallion, sired by For Dance and with Dagostini as damsire and Stedinger as damsdamsire, is out of exciting blood-lines which Blue Hors is looking forward to present to the German and Danish breeders.
Strong dam- and stallion-lines
The damsire Dagostini, who is sired by Dancier and Donnerhall, comes from a high-performance damline that includes both Grand Prix dressage horses, approved stallions, top mares and showjumpers up to 1.45m level. Dagostini himself has competed in Intermediare II dressage under Swiss rider Gina Kern.
Gold medal- and Grand Prix blood
Damsire Stedinger, who is sired by Sandro Hit and Landadel, was Premium Stallion at the Oldenburg licensing in Vechta in 2002 and has competed in dressage with placements in up to S-dressage under Dieter Weichert. As a 5-year-old, Stedinger qualified for the German Bundeschampionat in dressage in Warendorf.
As a breeding stallion, Stedinger is the father of more than 39 approved sons and 58 awarded mares. 59 of Stedinger's offspring are registered with victories and placements in S-dressage.
In 2006, the Stedinger son Status Quo was Premium Stallion at the Oldenburg licensing in Vechta. In 2008, Stedinger had three offspring; the approved sons Schumacher and Statesman (sold at the Elite Auction in Vechta for € 400,000) as well as Santorini OLD, in the Bundeschampionat finale in Warendorf. Schumacher and Statesman placed 2nd and 3rd for the 3-year-old stallions and Santorini OLD became the final winner in the class for 4-year-old riding horses.
Furthermore, it can be mentioned that the Stedinger son Socrate de Hus won the French dressage championship in both 2009 and 2010, just as 2 offspring were in the WCYH final for 5-year-old dressage horses in 2010; Schumacher with Claudia Rüscher in the saddle, who achieved a bronze medal, and the Danish-bred gold medal mare and later Grand Prix horse; Tørveslettens Stamina, who came in 6th place. In 2010, Tørveslettens Stamina won the Danish Riding Federation's 5-year-olds dressage championship and the Scandinavian Open in Falstebo, just as she in 2011 qualified for the WCYH final for 6-year-old dressage horses and won the Danish Riding Federation's 6-year-olds dressage championship.
Another Stedinger daughter; Tørveslettens Snowflake (full-sister to Tørveslettens Stamina), qualified for the 4-year final at the Danish Riding Federation's dressage championship in Odense in 2011, just as she also received a gold medal at the Danish Warmblood Elite Show the same year. The Stedinger daughter Atterupgaards Minaia was also awarded a gold medal at the Danish Warmblood Elite Show in 2011, as well as the award as "Best 2-year-old mare of the year" for Danish Warmbloods in 2010.
