"Tall, strong, broad and deep. Good neck set and harmonious overall impression; good movement. Significant breeding stallion type of high quality."Due to an injury received in importation, he started his competition career late. He was competed through Intermediare I and evented through Preliminary, and schooled in all the FEI movements. Unfortunately, complications arising from his earlier injury forced his early retirement. He was recognized in the 2000 book Trakehner Hengstregister as one of the limited list of stallions who have been successful in sport, acknowledging his successful dressage career through "S" Level. Standing at Gay McCall's Dancing Fields Farm in California, Kaspareit became one of the most popular Trakehner stallions in North America.
"Very significant and high-class in everything. Good large frame, strong skeleton, voluptuous muscles; excellent way of going in all paces."Mozart stood at Gestüt Hämelschenburg in Hameln from 1976 through 1979. He was sold to Holland in 1980, where he was accepted as an improvement sire within the Dutch Warmblood and became Dutch champion three times. In 1985 was imported to the United States. He sired 4 graded sons and 57 studbook daughters in Germany, including the Elite Mare SCHWALBENBURG, and many quality horses throughout Europe and in North America. Mozart died in 1997 while breeding a mare.
"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.
"Good character, balanced temperament, hard constitution. Responds to all ridden cues very willingly, easily and comfortably. Walk sufficiently good, trot good with extension. A stallion with much expression and dryness. Expressive face, good neck; much shoulder; in all quite compact. The front legs could be somewhat sturdier, formation of the hocks is satisfactory. The stallion goes somewhat wide behind, the hooves somewhat close together; way of going is very swinging, although not quite correct.He died in 1984, leaving 13 approved stallion sons and 98 studbook daughters, including the Elite Mare JENNY.
Almost all get are marked by energetic, swinging movement, and usually also by beautiful heads with good overall expression. If the mare is coarse in some respects, the children also are somewhat. Gunnar produced good breeding horses as well as good riding horses. Overall, he is considered a valuable element for Trakehner breeding."
"Walk, trot and canter very good; constitution satisfactory; good temperament, balanced character. Rideability very good; cross-country performance test good, jumping ability very good. Total result: very good.Ibikus was sold to Denmark in 1976, then returned to Germany where he stood from 1977 through 1983. He returned to Denmark in 1983, and died in 1996. He sired 12 approved sons in Germany and 106 studbook daughters, including the Verband Elite Mares GO-DA, GONDOLA, KLEOPATRA, and SCHWALBENBURG; he also made an impression in Denmark, where he sired, among others, an approved stallion as well as the dam of the Danish Champion stallion RAMBO.
Based on pedigree, conformation, and movement, he is a top-notch stallion of significant frame and good caliber with very expansive, fluid movement. He has obtained numerous tournament successes under his owner [O. Langels], as well as several riding horse Championships."
"Ibikus is one of the most influential sires of the Trakehner breeding since the second world war. Ibikus takes a leading position within the Trakehner population, not only through the amount and the quality of his approved sons and registered daughters, but also with respect to the delivery of Elite Auction horses, stallion-mothers, and successful competition horses especially in dressage." (Lars Gehrmann 1997)
"Medium frame, full of charm, harmony and balance; beautiful, very expressive head; shapely and well-muscled body; foundation medium strength; way of going straight and swinging. One of the most significant stallions of the last two decades. Equally outstanding in the production of breeding animals and riding horses. Emphasized especially in his children are harmony, good type, balanced movement, and flawless character."Komet died in 1980, having sired 7 approved sons and 52 stud book daughters, including the Verband Elite mare HERBSTBLÜTE.
"Strong, important breeding stallion with good stallion expression. Noble, character-full head; well-set and well-carried neck; good in the withers and shoulder; very beautiful in the topline; especially muscular, well-formed croup; excellent hocks, just a bit straighter than ideal. Well-formed knees; short sturdy cannons; well-muscled forearm; front pasterns somewhat upright, the hooves having a slight tendency to contracted heels. Straight, very swinging way of going. In all a very correct breeding stallion.Considered by many to be the most important sire post World-War II, Impuls left to the breed 17 approved sons and 117 studbook mares, including the Verband Elite mare SCHWALBENLIED, at his death in 1976.
He is paramount in the production of good broodmares with much substance, best foundation and good character. Some sons are valuable breeding stallions, and some children have excelled in competition, both in jumping and in dressage."
"Extraordinarily beautiful, expressive stallion with Arabian stamp, but in a large format. Very pretty face, much neck, thoroughly sufficient girth; the way of going is elastic and swinging; the stallion shows the best inclination for riding. In his youth he had such a bad accident that his recovery was doubtful. From that he retained a somewhat crooked head carriage which was only noticeable in the stable. From a veterinary perspective, this probably resulted from a hearing impairment from the accident.
A stallion of vast significance not only in the Trakehner but also in Bavarian breeding. Although somewhat nervous and therefore a hard keeper, he did not pass that on. His children inherited a pleasant character, good rideability, and good rhythmic movement. His sons, Flaneur in the Trakehner and his full brother, Mahdi, in the Bavarian breed, took a paramount position."
"Compact, well-sprung ribs and very muscular stallion with a pretty, small head. The front feet could be tighter. Very agile and always balanced in all movements. Surprisingly he produced large-framed horses, amongst then breeding stallions with quality and much movement."Index sired 5 graded stallions and 54 studbook mares before his death in 1989.
