Fuerst Grandios


Fuerst Grandios is a stallion with a lot of presence. His conformation is strikingly correct, his sequence of movement in all three gaits is elastic and especially productive and his jumping is simply awesome. Reserve Champion of the 2004 NRW approval, Champion stallion at his 30-day test in Prussendorf with top scores for his gaits and for rideability (9.13) but just as convincing in jumping (8.25). After winning several tests for young riding horses and a qualification for the Bundeschampionat in 2006, he finished his 70-day test in Schlieckau against very strong competitors on third place overall with an outstanding dressage index of 132.58 (rideability test 9.25!). Fürst Grandios is from the first crop of the whiz kid, Fürst Heinrich, who was the World Champion of young dressage horses in Verden in 2003 and presently ranks on seventh place with a score of 158 in the FN statistics on estimated breeding value. Fuerst Grandios's dam is sired by the legendary Argentinus, who produced international championship horses not only in jumping (e.g. Anka/M. Ehning or Arko III/N. Skelton) but in dressage as well (e.g. Albano/H. Kemmer). Of particular significance in Fuerst Grandios's pedigree is the Thoroughbred influence that comes from his sport-oriented dam line through the Thoroughbred dressage sire, Barsoi. Two full brothers of the granddam, Condor Boccerini as well as the private stallion, Bajazzo, collect ribbons in tests up to Grand Prix Special. The Grand Prix horse, Millenium, is a half-brother. SPS Griselda's full sister is the dam of two first class S-level dressage horses called Nussini 2 (Inter I) and Teutone. Another of Fürst Grandios' younger full brothers was the Reserve Champion stallion at the Oldenburg approval in 2005. The first foals of Fuerst Grandios surpassed expectations: among others he presented the champion foal at the broodmare show in Wadersloh (which later sold for 28,000 Euro at the NRW Elite Foal Auction) as well as three champion foals in Bavaria and the Vice Champion foal at 2008 German Foal Championships in Lienen.
