Raven: Blessed with high nobility attributes, the large-framed Raven embodies a high degree of athleticism and an extremely high-quality, supple basic gait arrangement, with which he was awarded the title of non-saleable premium stallion at the 2019 Westphalian licensing in Münster-Handorf. His always exemplary work attitude and constant willingness to perform should be emphasized.
The sire Revolution was a premium stallion and prize record holder in 2015, HLP winner in 2016, World Champion of five-year-old dressage horses in 2018 and Vice World Champion of six-year-old dressage horses in Ermelo (NED) in 2019. The versatile and hereditary dam’s sire Christ, himself successful in the dressage ring up to advanced (S) level, presented sensational sons at the German licensing venues in recent years, including several premium stallions. The highly proven Trakehner Buddenbrock adds a special blood variant to the pedigree and the extremely versatile Werther (Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 1992) as well as the top Holstein sire Calypso II, who is also the great-grandfather of the dam’s sire Christ, round off the blood picture.
Above Graphit and Gotthard, the valuable Hanoverian G-blood will be concentrated in the following generations. Raven represents the Hanoverian line 130/Anadyra I (by Angelo-Juli-Johannes-Trieglaff), which has produced such good stallions as A Conto As (PB Hess.), Abba (PB DK), Accusé (Ldb. Moritzburg), Campo Grande (Ldb. Dillenburg), Chalet’s Erbe (PB Westf. ), Competent (PB Hann.), Golden Eye (PB IRL), Paganini, Premonition, Quitoll, Lustig, Sigesmund (PB Oldbg.), Wulf (Ldb. Celle) and the internationally successful dressage horse Tango Korrupti/Ina-Katrin Schmid.
We are eagerly following his first crop of foals and are happy about the feedback from the breeders. Raven was in high demand at home and abroad last year and was exempt for the HLP like all 3-year-olds as a result of Corona 2020. He will take his 50-day test in the fall of 2021. Since the stallions have only been with us since February 05, now have to complete the EU quarantine and Anna wants to get to know her charges under saddle in a relaxed manner, we have decided on the 50-day test in the fall as a “total HLP package”. Raven is an exceptional stallion in charisma and movement, whose progress under saddle we follow with enthusiasm. We are convinced, here grows up a very great and his great translation will appreciate the “enough time”.
