Foundation (Archived)


Foundation has an exceptional charisma, big movement with his hindquarters working perfectly under the center of gravity, admirable uphill canter and a superb temperament. In addition, he is gifted with a certain charisma only a few young stallions have.He finished his 30-day test in Schlieckau with excellent scores; two 10.0s for trot and canter in the final test, 9.5 each for character and willingness to perform as well as 9.25 for rideabiltiy: He finished his test with an average score of 9.13 for inner values, 9.57 for trot and canter. In 2013, after many wins in L level dressage classes, he qualified for the German National Championships in Warendorf. 

Foundation's true moment of international breakthrough came in 2016 when, with rider Matthias Alexander Rath, he consistently placed and won Prix St. George and Intermediate I level. He was awarded with the main premium la of stallions with an emphasis on dressage in Vechta. His first offspring are frequently victorious in ridden and dressage horse competitions and he has already sired numerous highly placed German nation champion finalists.

In 2019, Foundation was successfully competing at international Grand Prix in Austria, Germany and France and was second in the Nations Cup in Falsterbo, Sweden. Previously he had placed in the Nurnberger Burgpokal Cup and Lousidor Prize finals with rider Matthias Alexander Rath. The 2020 season consisted of good placings in CDI4* and CDI5* Grand Prix again for Foundation and Rath.

Among his 25+ licensed sons are the P.S.I. price record holder and Vice World Champion Ferrari OLD, the reserve champion Freischütz, and the Hanoverian champion Feuertanz (riden by Matthias Alexander Rath). Foundation's daughter Feel Free OLD was second Reserve Champion Mare, German Vice Champion and competed in the final of the World Championships for young dressage horses. From his first crop aer Nadine Husenbeth's Faviola and Maike Mende's Florine OLD,both are internationally successful at the top level. Foundation's filly Fantasy sold for 107,000 euros, gaining the absolute top price in Vechta.

Looking like a true copy of his sire Fidertanz, who was striking NRW Champion Stallion, Vice- Champion of Germay and successful up to Intermediate I tests, Foundation originates from the athletic, highly successful dam line of Paninka, producer of Isabell Werth's multiple Grand Prix winner Apache, Olympic horse Escapado/Carl Hester and Hans Peter Minderhoud, the Inter I horses Lucky Luke, Wivara, Wocelli, Adolfo FRH and Cheyenne, who were both successful in three-stars competitions, and several others. Grand dam Weniga presented the 17-time advanced level test winner Queeny, who competed successfully in the short Grand Prix with Victoria Michalke, and the Prix St. Georges winner Lord/Kathleen Keller.
