"Proud, large, powerful black, has not yet developed a rectangular format. Very uphill, a bit short in the back, with a well-muscled croup and hindquarters with first-class hocks. Energetic way of going with high action ..."Evented by Martin Plewa, Habicht won the CCI*** at Achselschwang and was the top German competitor at the Burghley CCI**** in 1977.
After his performance testing, he was called a "Very suitable riding horse for all disciplines."
"Extremely beautiful in all parts. Finely chiseled head, good neck, best overall top line, somewhat light in bone, good hocks, first-class mover, especially at the trot."Graditz was also approved by the Hanoverian Verband.
"A charming stallion with a beautiful head and intelligent, lively eye. Uphill but with small withers. Sufficiently deep and broad with a round croup; excellent tail set. Straight and swinging gaits with somewhat high action. A stallion of high intelligence with the very best character.Burnus left a huge legacy in the performance bloodlines of the Trakehner as well as the Rhinelander and Westfalian registries. The sire of Harry Boldt's BARITON, the German event horse KIM, and the famous jumper SCHWALBEREICH, his three approved Trakehner sons were ALARM, MARKES LETZTER, and HABICHT. Burnus died at the age of 32.
"Burnus was successful in eventing competition.
"An alert, good, affectionate character and easy rideability of his children are the outstanding feautures of this sire. His get are forward and love to jump. They are of noble type with a medium-strong foundation and good movement with somewhat high action at the trot."
"Walk, trot, canter good. Attentive favorable temperament, firm constitution. Good rideability, easy to handle. Good jumping ability. Elegant riding horse for multiple disciplines.He sired 3 graded sons and 33 studbook daughters, with children competing at the highest levels in dressage and jumping. Rondo died in 1997.
Excellent example of a sire with good breed and stallion type: noble, expressive head, very well-set neck, good shoulder, saddle position and topline, harmonious physique, four good legs, very ground covering movement in all gaits.
Rondo delivers hard, dry horses of pleasing type. The movement could often show more authority. His get are sometimes light in their foundations. The stallion has produced some excellent sport horses for all disciplines."
"Harmonious overall, full of expression; medium frame, correct, medium strong foundation; breed type and characteristics clearly evident; well muscled body, compact and tautly textured; type of the multifaceted performance horse that could have a bit more masculinity. "Avignon died in 2002 at Castell Imperator Hof.
"Very expressive, medium sized stallion with a beautiful, intelligent head, somewhat large in the throatlatch; sufficiently long neck, a bit pronounced in the lower line; a good angled shoulder, a bit of a depression behind the withers, good depth of girth and well-sprung ribs; medium strong, dry foundation with excellent hocks; very ground-covering, elastic movement. His get are typey, but he requires sufficiently large mares; his children have much movement.".
"Good stallion expression combined with excellent type. Significant and noble in all respects; very good movement. Excellent length and form of the neck as well as the shoulder area; in spite of long lines, strong connections; movement is better in front than behind; flawless, sufficiently strong foundation; very good movement. Beautiful type with a noble face and a good neck with large frame are characteristic of his get, as well as good character. Especially valuable because of his many good daughters with big movement."He died in 1980, leaving 12 approved stallion sons and 55 studbook daughters.
"Noble, expressive stallion standing over much ground. Very pretty head, much neck, shoulder and withers; good topline, sufficient depth of girth; dry, correct foundation, but light; expansive way of going in the walk, trot, and canter; right front points somewhat outward. The stallion covered only few mares but produced very quality horses."He sired 4 stud book mares before 1960 when he was sold to Denmark, where he died in 1975.
