For the Olympic squad participants, the German Championships in Balve are a compulsory event. Escolar, who was once again appointed to the Olympic squad by the DOKR at the beginning of the year, will nevertheless not make the journey to Balve. In joint discussions with Hubertus Schmidt, it was decided to spare the 13-year-old Estobar NRW son, who is in great demand for breeding, the double burden and to make him available to the breeders without restrictions until the end of the breeding season. For years Escolar has been one of the most sought-after dressage sires in Europe. In the meantime, his oldest offspring are at home on the international stage and are highly sought after.
Due to this fact, the focus for the figurehead of the stallion station will be on breeding until the end of July.
