Heartbeat (Archived)


Heartbeat has proven to be a top sire passing on his superb breeding characteristics as a modern sports horse for the international arenas. He continues to impress through producing high quality offspring and not only does he give his offspring an amazing jumping technique, but also outstanding rideability. In 2012 he was named by the judges of the stallion performance tests in Denmark as “The Breeding Matador in jumping” and in 2013 he was awarded “Stallion of the Year” in Denmark, where he is also an elite stallion.

Heartbeat 1334 is a leggy stallion with a very good type that on approval in Denmark in 2004 attained a total of 910 points in jumping! He was awarded with 9 for type, 8 for the correct legs and good hooves, and 10 points for the whole. 

In 2018, Heartbeat was awarded Elite status by the SWB association and became Stallion of the Year thanks to his three highly placed offspring at the Swedish Breeding Championships. Heartcore L won the 6-year old class, with Thelma Hästak placed fifth in the same class and Viking Hästak was third in the 4-year old class.

Heartbeat is a statuesque stallion with a very good conformation. At the Danish licensing performance test in 2004 he was awarded the title “Flöjhingst”, achieving a total of 910 points for jumping. He was awarded 9 for type, 10 for his very good top-line and his musculature, 8 for the correct leg and hoof posture, and received a full 10 points for overall impression. His trot was highly judged, and the canter was particularly well received with a big scope and balance.

Heartbeat won his 30-day performance test 2005 in Vilhelmsborg and became a champion both as a 4-, 5- and 6-year-old in Denmark. As a 5-year old he won the 2006 Danish young horse championship in jumping, achieving the maximum of 10 points in the eight assessment points. The same year he made four flawless clear rounds during the Young Horse World Championships in Zangersheide and took second place in the 5-years old championship in Falsterbo. Heartbeat has since competed successful at International Grand Prix level. Heartbeat was named Breeder's Trophy Colt in Denmark in 2013 and 2014.  The Elite in Denmark awarded him well as he is known internationally as a high-quality performance sire for modern breeders. Heartbeat has been shown to produce well with Swedish mares. He has exceptional rideability and continues to impress and produce strong offspring with Swedish mothers. 

In 2005 Heartbeat won his 30-day test in William's Castle and became champion as a four, five, and six-year-old in Denmark. At age 5, Heartbeat won the Danish Championship for young horses in jumping with a maximum score of 10 in the eight assessment points. In the same year, he made four clear rounds in the World Championship for young horses at Zangersheide and was also second in Falsterbo. Heartbeat 1334 also has top rankings at the international Grand Prix.. 

Heartbeat has seven approved sons after himself and multiple offspring that are actively competing in the difficult class. Among them include Albfuehren's Happiness, ridden by Steve Guerdat, and Hargita, ridden by Malin Baryard and Main Road. 

Heartbeat has several approved sons and many offspring who compete at S-class level. A few that stand out include Albfuehren’s Happiness ridden by Steve Guerdat and Main Road ridden by Shane Sweetnam. His SWB approved son Hasard 1245 ridden by Niklas Arvidsson competes up to 160 level. His daughter Järta ridden by Karin Martinsen won the 2016 Swedish Breeders Trophy and the Elmia Scandinavian Horse Show for 7-year-old horses. Another daughter, Lucky Lisa, won the 3-year Swedish Breeders championships, and went on to compete successfully ridden by Alexander Zetterman with placements in International 155 classes, and during the Swedish International Horse Show.

The Heartbeat son Happy Feets Heartbeat (b. 2012, ue. Baloubet du Rouet) has been top placed as a young horse and is regarded as a potential future championship horse. He achieved, among other things, Denmark’s highest accumulated points in jumping during the Danish Warmblood’s young horse test. A total of 987, 5 points distributed with 9.5 on technique, 10 for scope, 10 for the canter, and 10 for rideability. Happy Feets Heartbeat (ridden by Stein Endresen) has continued to live up to expectations as a young horse and secured a number of victories.

In the past few years, Heartbeat has proven himself a stallion to count on. He has had several offspring qualify for the World Young Horse Championships in jumping and great successes as a sire during the Swedish Breeders Trophy.

His sire, Heartbreaker, is truly a legend who consistently performed with elasticity and responsiveness and was awarded the coveted title "The Horse" in the KWPN in 2015. Grand sire Nimmerdoor was awarded concurrently with the title "Stallion of the Century" in the KWPN. Heartbreaker has many of his own great merits and  has been very successful producing exceptional offspring for the sport and breeding. Even his dame sire Ramiro Z has been a top competitor and has attained titles such as the "Stallion of the Century" and the "King of Sires".
