2008 dark bay stallion, Hann., Stckm. 1,68
Approved for: Westphalia, Rhineland, Oldenburg and Hannover
Breeder: Elisabeth Albers, Loeningen
Owner: Wilhelm Holkenbrink, Münster
At the 20. North Rhine Westphalian licensing 2010 in Münster-Handorf
this stallion fascinated the public. The premium stallion Franziskus already
started his career as winner of the German Foal Championship qualification. An
excellent type with naturally uphill conformation, a first class division of
the body with sufficient harmony and correctness predestine this stallion for a
brilliant future in competitive dressage. He has three excellent basic paces: a
perfect walk, a dynamic trot and a fantastic uphill canter.
The sire Fidertanz started his phenomenal career in the year
2004 as NRW-Champion Stallion in Münster-Handorf. In 2005 Fidertanz won his
30-day-test in Neustadt/Dosse with best results and became Vice Bundeschampion
with a top score of 9.5 in test-riding.
In the year 2006 he received the 1a-premium for
dressage-stallions at the Oldenburg-licensing in Vechta. In the meantime
Fidertanz has been trained up to the advanced level in dressage.
The dam, Antara, produced with De Niro the licensed stallion
Dementi, who is successful on the advanced dressage level. The dam’s sire is
the former Bundeschampion of German Dressage Horses, Alabaster. The third and
fourth generation of the pedigree is refined by the internationally successful
top-stallions Rubinstein I rsp. Grundstein I. The dam line is based on the
Irish thoroughbred-mare Daffy Toban xx (v. Go Tabann xx-Mustang xx-Flamenco xx
etc,, thoroughbred-familiy 2). Some of the stallions out of this line, which is
followed by the breeding-familiy Albers since mid of 1970, are e.g. Count on Me
(PB Denmark), Grafenstein (PB Oldenburg, State Stud Redefin and Marbach) rsp.
Winston (PB Hannover, State Stud Celle), as well as the international sport
horses Grand Giraud/Alexandra Simons-de Ridder rsp. Calman, who won the
“Goldene Peitsche” in Nörten-Hardenberg under the saddle of Rolf Moormann.
