Hanoverian stallion licensing - dressage horses in focus

For the first time, the Hannoveraner Verband in Verden is organizing the licensing and stallion sales separately according to discipline. From November 4 to 6, the focus in the Niedersachsenhalle will be on the dressage stallions.

The show jumping stallions will make their grand entrance from December 2 to 4. The excellent collection of two and a half year olds with exquisite pedigrees is online at with photos, videos and lots of information about the dam lines.


The young stallions of the 2019 vintage are not only highly interesting as future sires. Often already international careers in sport started at the licensing. This is also the case with Destacado FRH by Desperados/Londonderry (breeder: Heinrich Gießelmann, Barver), who won the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal final with rider Matthias Alexander Rath last December. A year earlier, D'avie FRH by Don Juan de Hus/Londonderry (breeder: Dorothee Heitmüller, Nienburg) was sold at the stallion sales in Verden. As a double World Champion, he is currently successfully presented by Lisa Müller at Grand Prix level.


The pedigrees of the dressage stallions are more varied than ever before. For the first time, a larger number of offspring from the Westphalian branch of the Adeptus xx stallion line is represented in Verden. Escolar, who was successful up to Grand Prix with rider Hubertus Schmidt, is sending ten young stallions to the Hannoveraner licensing together with his son, the Vice World Champion of young dressage horses, Escamillo. In addition, the privately owned stallion Secret is just as strongly represented in the licensing collection with his second crop as he was with his premiere crop in 2020.
